It seems that our little spammer friend Julian Angelo is still at it.
the contents of Aardvark's "million-dollar ideas" notebook
are revealed for all to see!
I've received several complaints from people who he's targeted -- albeit
the initial contact was done under the name (alias?) "Hayden".
These bulk emailings have been sent through the usual open relays
offshore (predominantly Korean) -- but using possibly bogus header
information that suggests it originated from the network of

As NZ's longest-running online commentator, I'm looking for
extra syndication opportunities for this daily publication -- or I'm happy
to write casual or regular material specifically to order for print or
Net-based publications. If you're

I know of several people who have forwarded copies of this spam to Compass
but none have received a response of any kind.
If this guy is using Compass as his point of access then their inaction
represents a "couldn't care less" attitude to spamming and that's not good
to see within the ISP industry.
If however, the header information is bogus, then Compass would be well
advised to respond to these complainants and advise them so -- then perhaps
take some action against Angelo -- perhaps for misuse of their trademark.
Today's column is late and brief -- mainly because the IBM hard drive in my
PC is dying.
It has begun recalibrating itself at an ever-increasing frequency and began
throwing up bad sectors this morning.
Hopefully I'll get this up before it expires completely.
Unfortunately it's not the nodel for which several class-action lawsuits
are presently underway so I figure it's just bad luck (again).
Has anyone else ever noticed that hard drives often fail just weeks after
their warranty expires?
I should also advise readers that I'm in the process of moving Aardvark
to a new server sometime in the next day or two -- so if the site is
temporarily inaccessible it's probably because the DNS hasn't caught up
with its new home yet.
By the way, now's the time to send off links for tomorrow's Lighten Up section.
