Twenty seven year old Robert Alan Soloway is accused of hijacking hundreds of (zombie) computers and using them to send out millions of spam emails. Soloway is in a whole heap of trouble being charged for mail fraud, wire fraud, e-mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and money laundering. Authorities are trying to regain $773,000 he made from his businesses. If convicted, he could face up to 60 years in prison.
Spam is a nuisance. Maybe, more than a nuisance. Just look at these statistics. 40% of emails are spam. 12.4 billion spam emails are sent everyday. It cost US corporations $9 billion dollars in 2002 alone. Incredible! Truly is the scourge of the internet. That and porn.
What a relief! I thought I was hallucinating everytime I lost my technorati tags after a comment is made. I wasn’t. It really was disappearing. I had to repost the tags to make sure it doesn’t get removed from Technorati pages. Apparently, there’s a fix for Bunny’s Technorati Tag available since Feb 1. It serves me right for noticing things. By the way, I use Technorati tags heavily to generate a little bit of traffic to my site. All is well in the blog kingdom.
Highly improbable. Camera trick? Either lots of takes or some creative video editing. The spoof below is very funny. Got to see both to get a laugh. Hilarious.
Awesome. Amazing upper body strength. Incredible.
This guy is very good. Nice harmonics towards the end. His name is Andy McKee.
Road skating? Nuts! I figured the temperature in the desert over 120, it makes the asphalt or road really greasy. Skating outside the car with just sandals is even crazier, mind you at freeways speeds and in the fast lane. Very entertaining, but very, very dangerous. Don’t do this at your local freeway.
Today, we remember our fallen heroes who have served and given up their lives for the freedom we enjoy in this country. We salute you!
Just boasting about my Comcast cable internet connection. I just ran an internet speed test using Speakeasy.com speed test tool. I came away with this result. My download speed is at 23.626 mbps or megabits per second. Screaming fast! Surfing has never been better. My upload rate is a bit of a disappointment at only 1.544 mbps. I can’t complain.
I just checked Dell’s website. They are now selling Linux PCs equipped with Ubuntu 7.04. There are 3 systems available including a laptop. Prices start at $599. Check out the website.
I woke up this morning to a new world of Technorati. They have just revamped their website with new colors and a new layout. I like the colors because it looks exactly like mine. It has blue, green and orange except that I’ve been using these colors for a couple months now. Get your own colors. Copy cat!
