Ultimate Geek Toy

A genuine Computer on your wrist. Now this has to be the ultimate toy for your favourite geek. I want one.

Evil thought of the day

How to get even with someone who has done something vile to you.

Assuming they have an email address, the answer is simple. Start subscribing them to spam. Newsletters that say 'we give your information to third parties'. Actually, much spam is simply getting that email address posted on a couple of web sites. Once it is out there, the spam bots will find it. Your victim is doomed.

Even more evil would be to subscribe them to a porn site mailouts, but that's probably more than anyone deserves.

Obviously, this is pretty nasty and should be saved for extreme measures.

An update on the ebay auction

The guy who put for auction a rock to warn people about an ebay scam ended up with a bid for $21. He decided at some point that he'd send a nice little carved rock rather than just one from the drive! Kind of interesting to see.
