Shopping

I've always liked gadgets and unusual products but finding them can be troublesome, as I am not sure what the whole range of stuff I am looking for is actually called. Looking for unusual items on eBay is about as close as I managed to come to this undefined mass of products I wanted to browse.

Traffic to this site was growing fast, according to the AWstats log analyzer. Just what every website owner wants to see. Some comment spam here and there - nothing big, I thought. One day I finally reviewed the comments and realized there were over 10,000 of them - all spam! It took a while to figure out how to delete them all easily (truncate the comments tables).

Not sure how the spammers by-passed the captcha I put in place - there's either an exploit in place or spammers took advantage of the fact that they only needed to solve it once and then could post unlimited comments.

Warp Drive

Just reading that actual scientists are trying to build miniture space warp drives in their labs is pants wettingly exciting. 

"Dr. White and his team of researchers have set up a miniature version of the warp drive in their labs, attempting to create small warps in space and time. While certainly on a far smaller scale, White’s work may be the beginning of real-life warp drive." via ExtremeTech

Welcome to North Korea

I watched a documentary on North Korea the other night, and these monuments in the capital were featured - standing proud - as you might say. It's the hammer, sickle, and "paint brush" to represent the literacy of the people. That's some fine monument building there, North Korea.
