HijackThis has been hijacked???

Looks like someone forgot to pay the hosting bill. www.merijn.org Is now a ad FARM GODADDY PARK PAGE. Godaddy is going to make a bundle off this goofup!! But I wonder if merijn/TrendMicro just forgot to pay the bill or deleted it? What ever the case I hope it’s fixed soon as thousands of webpages link to that address andso does wikipedia.org . So I hope it is just a accident and not permanent.

So according to WD their new drive has a MTBF of 1.4 Million hours.For the less mathematically inclined that’s roughly 160 YEARS. I smell BS because of their 5-year limited warranty and solid grasp on reality.

Rock-solid Reliability – Designed and manufactured to mission-critical enterprise-class standards to provide enterprise reliability in high duty cycle environments. With 1.4 million hours MTBF, these drives have the highest available reliability rating on a high capacity SATA drive.

Dude I got third place

I just got back from an adventure race in Georgia at Fort Gordon called medwars. http://www.medwar.org/
Designed test wilderness survival and medical skills

Dude I got third place. Well, me and my 4 man team did. The race is 10 – 15 miles over varying. paved road, fire roads, brush, lakes, and swamp. Yea, swamp.. mud thigh high and if you weren’t paying attention waist deep. Some mountain biking and canoeing too but mostly running or trotting. Our time was 6.20 Hr we got third place out of 30 teams. 1st got us by 27 min and 2nd got us by 17 min.

They actually beat us by 1hr 20 min but they skipped a lot of checkpoints and did poorly on the med scenarios.

Will post pics of event as they are sent to me. Didn’t bring my camera:-(

Dollar Revenue wants you.

Even after the Dutch telecom watchdog OPTA has imposed a fine totaling EUR 1 million on DollarRevenue.com. DollarRevenue just won’t give in. The worm turns and the malware pusher sent out this e-mail to all former pushers affiliates. Who wants to bet that no one replies.

Dear webmaster,

As a former affiliate of the DollarRevenue program we would like to
ask you the following.

In November 2006 the DollarRevenue program was suddenly discontinued.
This was a direct result of a legal procedure by the Dutch Telecom
Agency. We would like to apologize for any inconvenience or losses you
may have occurred from the Agency’s actions.

The Agency has fined our company with a substantive amount for not
providing enough information on the DollarRevenue software you have
offered to end-users.We do not agree with and have appealed the
Agency’s decision. We believe that the information provided to
end-users by our affiliates was sufficient.

At this moment we are making an inventory of the way our affiliates
have provided end-users with information on the DollarRevenue
software.

Our question to you is: how have you provided DollarRevenue’s EULA to end-users?

We would be very inclined if you could provide us an answer on this
question by return e-mail.

Any other statement on the promotion and information method you used
is also welcome.

We might use this information in the appeal against the Agency’s
decision.Though we do not think it necessary, please indicate if you
want us to anonimize your answer.

Greetings,
DollarRevenue
