New last.fm feature: Which music do I listen to in two days


last.fm is now able to forecast the future and it's calculating the stats ahead. Obviously they are currently improving this feature, because some days ago the forecast was only for one day, that's why I thought it was just a missing timezone query. But with a difference of two days (current state of development) it's clear, that this is a feature and not a bug.

Screenshot of my music stats that shows, the generating date of 28.th january 2007

Spam guard phase 2


I activated the second phase of the “spam guard” für my blog here, because the first one was only successful at the beginning. This time the Bot doesn't have to “set a checkbox”, it has to choose the right value from a list. I'm curious about the result of this experiment.

For the next step I'm planing a text-CAPTCHA. Maybe I'll experiment a lil'bit with the amount of options in the selectbox. We'll see...

degrees + ( minutes * 1/60 ) + ( secondes * 1/3600 )

Spam again


It looks, that my first Spam-Defense-Idea only worked for a short time. I think I'll spent some time next week, with realisizing a second step. Please note, if you are reading here something about porn or strange pharmaceutical stuff, it's just spam that I haven't deleted yet.

Computer named after their owners


Sometimes I think it's kind of funny, when computers are named after their ownerns. It's a little bit strange when your typing some commands in the terminal:

host michael
mount.smbfs //angelique/activities /mnt/friends
dig julia
telnet dave
whois alice
ping john
wget http://joe/borrowed_dvd
scp my_best_poem.txt cecilia:/home/cecilia

Random Thought

Did you know that, if you play a Windows 2000 CD backwards, you will hear the voice of Satan?
That's nothing!
If you play it forward, it will install Windows 2000!!!
