First virtual mugging

by rob In reply to Rob Marshall @ www.MyITFo ...

<P>Sourced from Slashdot:</P>
<P>electro-donkey writes <I>"A man has been arrested in Japan after on suspicion <A href="http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn7865">using a bot to beat up and rob characters</A> in the online computer game Lineage II. The stolen virtual possessions were then exchanged for real cash, according to this report from NewScienist.com. "I regularly say that every form of theft and fraud in the real world will eventually be duplicated in cyberspace," says Bruce Schneier."</I></P>
<P>Keep your virtual wallet tucked away guys, nothings safe anymore!</P>
<P>"I was walking down the path in to the town of Dereth, taking in the ambience of the trees of K'luth when this dodgy looking fellow with a big bag with "SWAG" written on it walked up to me. Before I new it half my Inventory disappeared, I was on the floor, and I realsed my Mace of Holy Smiting was gone."</P><img src ="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/aggbug/12928.aspx" width = "1" height = "1" /><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/archive/2005/08/18/12928.aspx">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

<P>Ecstatic about this ... I love SMS2003, and i'll be working with the little beauty again. Who could possibly ask for more?!</P>

The Office

by rob In reply to Rob Marshall @ www.MyITFo ...

<P>You guys in america watching <A href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0386676/">The Office</A>, well you owe it to yourself to get hold of the original <A href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0290978/">UK version</A> with Ricky Gervais. Ignore all that twaddle about "Americans just not getting it", the shows awesomely universal. Your nerves feel red raw, your face aches from laughing, it is the essence of office life :/P>
<P>Not that I'm knocking the remake for american consumption, i've not seen it, but the original actors are so funny, well ... it'd be like redoing <A href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072500/">Faulty Towers</A> where you'd loose the punchyness from the original actors john cleese and connie booth.</P><img src ="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/aggbug/12954.aspx" width = "1" height = "1" /><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/archive/2005/08/19/12954.aspx">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

DIY Endoscope

by rob In reply to Rob Marshall @ www.MyITFo ...

<P>Hat of to this <A href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4145984.stm">guy</A> ...</P>
<P>He didn't need a legion of computer and electrical engineers, runs his stuff on the Microsoft OS, didn't need expensive equipment costing up to $30k - just a few lenses, a webcab, a Pent4 and an £800 scope. Cool :/P>
<P>Be funny if he's half way through a session and it BSOD's ... oops heh course it won't ;-)</P><img src ="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/aggbug/13037.aspx" width = "1" height = "1" /><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/archive/2005/08/23/13037.aspx">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Classic movies to curl up on the sofa and watch

by rob In reply to Rob Marshall @ www.MyITFo ...

<P>Watched a classic movie last night, <A href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070735/">The Sting</A>. Paul Newman with his twinkly blue eyes, a very young Robert Redford and Robert Shaw (who played Quint in <A href=" ...">http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073195/">Jaws</A&gt ... really enjoyed it.</P>
<P>I expect Hollywood to reinvent\redo this movie soon ... let's hope they don't ruin it like they did <A href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0046534/">War of the Worlds</A> and the recent slew of remakes that they just keep pouring out</P>
<P>Got any classics you like?</P>
<P>I'm hoping to get a few classics together to watch over the Xmas break, put up your list or email it to me ;-)</P><img src ="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/aggbug/13623.aspx" width = "1" height = "1" /><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/archive/2005/08/30/13623.aspx">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Katrina

by rob In reply to Rob Marshall @ www.MyITFo ...

<P>I'm seeing more news about the ramifications from Katrina, and it really is upsetting that so many people are suffering right now. The scale of this natural disaster, well it is just incredible.</P>
<P>Like Michael Wood said, from the UK our hearts go out to all those affected by this.</P><img src ="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/aggbug/13709.aspx" width = "1" height = "1" /><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/robm/archive/2005/09/01/13709.aspx">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
