At least the 404 file not found message that appeared with the dead links I've been checking has now been changed. The new message is:
MediaMax Hosted File
The file you requested is a MediaMax hosted file. We are presently moving MediaMax files to The Linkup and this file will be available when the process has been completed.
We apologize for any inconvenience.---
Yeah, right. What's the betting this message will appear until December 2008?
No-one asked for this re-branding. It is the attempt of the company to escape its awful image and users once again have to pay the price and suffer the consequencies.
No-one asked for Mediamax to be shut down, so we have to use The Linkup system which is still in beta - and doesn't work, as many people here have noted.
