Spma, no it's psam no it's...

This morning, the crew on the radio were twittering about "Hard Spell" (a televised spelling competition for kids), and the fact that there is an online spelling test against the clock on their website.

This was in the middle of the review of the papers. That crowd have an attention span of Kiki.

Ohhh shiny.


Anyway, in other news, here is a report from the BBC. Lycos Europe created a screen saver to bombard spammers URLs with requests. The idea was to make spam economically unviable.
However it's been a little too successful.

Two of the three sites targeted keeled over, and the third is struggling.

So much for "it's not a DoS attack".

take care,
