    Scam warning

    I have recently received a demand for payment from "Domain Name Renewal Group" of Melbourne. They are nothing to do with my website host and as such it is a fraudulent requst.
    I have contacted Australian Federal Police regarding this matter and I just wished to make people aware.

    Cheers

    I'm working on an IP guided nuclear weapon. It's designed to lock on to the IP address of SPAM emailers and deliver a kilo-ton reply. I hope to commercialise the product. There may be some collateral damage to folks who don't have a firewall or anti-virus software installed, but serves them right. Can I put you down for one or two?

    That's a joke folks.

    I'd dearly love to repeat Milgrim's experiment and use real live spammers and a real current.

    If you have their LAT & LONG from google maps you can technically hit them with a cruise missile!

    The yanks took a photo of some new Apache Helicopter Gunships in the 'Ghan and put it on facebook with GPS. The Taliban used the information to bomb them and destroyed all.

    How many of you just got an email from bubbly.jess@hotmail.com about a Year 12 Survey? I can check, because she put everyone's email in the address.

    Lots of photographers on that list. Dare I click on the link to the survey? I think not.

    You guys have all the fun. All I get are Nigerians telling me I have won some lottery or some rich widow has died and they need my help to transfer the $millions, or viagra ones.
