Spam: Nigerian Jerry Duruibe: Day 1

November 13th, 2002 by Richy B. 4 comments »

Damn. Just as soon as I get rid of one spammer, another one comes along to take his place. Admittedly, this one isn’t “bulk-spamming” me, but wants to rip me off to the tune of several thousand pounds (and maybe my life) – if the Nigerian 419 spam is anything to go by. Yep, this one is also from Nigeria (even though it’s come from a Romania domain), but this one sounds slightly more convincing and even I had to take a second look at “Jerry Duruibe”‘s email…

Spam: N ENZO & CO, Part II

November 13th, 2002 by Richy B. No comments »

I’ve had a partial resolve to the spam I had yesterday from N.Enzo and Co. Basically, it’s stopped but I’m still not sure exactly who “N.Enzo and Co” are. A search on doesn’t show any ‘Enzo’ living in Colchester 🙁

Game: Fling that Cow!

Cow Flinging is such fun! Just click on the catapulte to fire your cow towards to bulls-eye. The closer you get to the centre, the more points (up to fifty) you get. After several goes, I managed to score a massive 390 (out of 500). Until I worked out that you need to release the cow after around 4 seconds (it doesn’t seem too static) I wasn’t doing too well.

Fun: Pick On George Bush!

[Click to zoom]I’ve come across a couple of sites today poking fun at George W. Bush (did you know the ‘W’ stood for Walker?’). Whilst I know it’s not a new occurance, the site posted by UserFriendly is quite fun – “Make Your Own Bush Speech” (where you join up words and phrases to make Dubya speak).

And Joho has blogged with this picture Dubya with a pair of binoculars. But click on the picture (to get a bigger view) and look at the lens cap of the binocs… And the Americans trust him to run their country? 🙂


News: “The End of the World is Nigh”

Well, it looks like we are all about to die. Oh well, such is life. Com’n, you are trying to tell me you haven’t yet heard that the Earth’s poles are going to flip causing the Sun’s rays roast us? (see also the Slashdot story or NASA’s viewpoint). According to Sightings, it’s going to happen on the 05/May/2005 (05/05/05 – coincidence?)

I liked the Slashdot posts:

FYI, when the poles flip, every natural disaster known to man kind happens in a 30 day period…

Floods, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes. You name it.

Good! Might as well get all of them out of the way quickly and have it easy after that!


Of course, the Sun is expected to explode in less than six years – so by 2010 we are all going to be dead (according to the scientists). I’m still not tempted to take out massive loans over a 30 year period though for some inane reason.
