    I'm sure some of you will have seen the spam email going around by now claiming they hacked your computer and recorded you doing the five knuckle shuffle to some porn. I had several such emails today, so when I happened across this El Reg article made me chuckle, and I thought I'd share.

    Oh, I hate those Something for the Weekend podcast/video things. I can usually spot their particular brand of tabloid headline, but it can sometimes be hard to tell the difference between a funny story and an ages long podcast I don't particularly want to listen to on there.

    Yes, I also pay for my email separately from my internet connection. I've always thought it was more to do with how widely I spread my email address. Ignoring gmails nasty habit of sending anything vaguely mispelled to your inbox, I had to sacrifice my original demon mail address after a while, and that was mainly because I posted my address to newsgroups. Gmails filtering is generally very good, but I mainly rely on being careful where my address ends up these days, and creating separate addresses if I have to sign up to a new service.
