Have you ever bought prescription pills sold from obvious spam, poorly worded and spelled and clearly bogus? Me either. But someone does, that's why spammers continue to try and find new, ever more insidious ways to simply get their message viewed; that is the way spam works, you send out such a wide net that the odds are that you'll catch enough suckers to pay the bills plus some.

What about the Nigerian 419 scam? You ever think that by giving someone your bank account, that they will the...

Dr. Guy has a recent entry where he claims there is a debate, yes a debate, about global warming. You can deny global warming if you like, but denial does not make a debate. To debate you should do more than just point to extreme behavior from the opposing viewpoint--you should also provide some justification for your own. This is difficult to do, because climate change denial is at its heart nothing but a statement of opinion that there isn't enough proof. It is an argument of negatives.

The spam watchdog group spamhaus.org was recently sued by "Bulk Emailer" e360Insight in an Illinois court.

Because what I said was: Nuclear weapons and their use is evil--more evil than the use of conventional weaponry.

Of course, it is absurd that I would have had to make that point in the first place. And it is even more ri...

I'm no conspiracy theorist, but one can't help but recognize patterns. It is after all, fairly natural to see order and reason in things, even when it is not there. But at times it seems that the ever dwindling Bush supporters are somehow all reading from the same page. I'm sure it is just a coincidence, for example, that on the same day a blogger on JoeUser.com asks, "Is Obsessively Hating Bush a Mental Disorder?" there is also a thread started on the deviantArt forums entitled "The Psychol...

Hi there,

I am trying to create a media player object which will show a
visualisation window whenever and only when music (or video) is playing.

It has been very frustrating, I'm hoping someone here can give me some
pointers.

I tried to deconstruct Martin's object
