OK, there’s a few things wrong here but the most blatant is the fact that they didn’t even bother spoofing the URL of paypal.com, they just went ahead and put up the IP address of a server in the Czech Republic (thanks dnsstuff.com!)
Is this just an example of spammers/spoofers/phishers/whateverthefuckthey’recallingthemselvesnow not caring or just ineptitude? I’m betting on ineptitude myself.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I apologize for that. Really. this is a post using Windows Live Writer per Tom’s recommendation.
I don’t really have much else to say at the moment, life’s been pretty much status quo, but I’ll have some exciting stuff coming up, including a white water rafting trip in a week or so that I’ll try to talk about.
Actually, I was available… We thought it would be a good idea to start video blogging some work-related stuff in the office and Gene and I shot the video linked below to welcome our customers to our service and give them an overview of what we can offer.

Well, it’s been 30 years since Star Wars: A New Hope was released in theaters and created a generation of geeks, myself included. According to TheForce.net the US Postal Service is working with Lucas Arts to commenorate the event with the geekiest mailboxes this side of Tatooine and I couldn’t be happier! Check it out below!
Who’s with me?
You hear that? That’s the sound of 10 of my hard (ly)-earned dollars being flushed into the toilet that is known as the “Powerball Lottery.”
The best response of the day? Gene saying, “No thanks, I was a statistics major in college.”
Thanks to Sonya for the new header image above!
So I played a little trick on Tom tonight at bowling. Nothing huge, just enough to irk him and make him shake his fist at me.
Now, however, I’m worried. See, Tom has access/control over every PC in the office and can cause some VERY SERIOUS things with my computer and network access. Not to mention, of course, my access to the building and phone. We were joking about what he could do and I jokingly said something about making my corporate login password 64-characters in length with no letters or numbers allowed, only “special characters” (ex. #+~^%#$]?). This caused his eyebrow to raise in thought.
