Arf. Arf.

419 Eater always amuses me – it is a website scam-baiters follow through with those Nigerian scam emails. Today though I read a case where someone manages to persuade the scammer to tattoo Baited By Shiver on his leg. Read it here. Comedy.

If everyone does five bugs a day, amazing progress gets made. […]
