    Technorati’s Twisted Sense of Humor 

    I have an RSS feed that uses a Google query for my name… And no, my real name is not “Slave”. Every day I get random stuff from Technorati in that feed. I don’t quite get it – It seems that Google is picking up my name as part of the post tags! My name is nowhere to be found when I get to the article, however… In this case that’s a real relief.

    I couldn’t resist an entry with my name in the tags, titled “Scareware Scumbags Facing Fraud Charges” – For a moment my heart stopped – I thought they found me!

    Its about a $100M scareware fraud… I love how the article ends…

    Unfortunately, the two guys that ran the main operation, Bjorn Sundin and Shaileshkuma Jain, live in the Ukraine and Sweden respectively. In really nice houses. Where they’ll probably be able to hole up watching movies and snorting coke off of hookers’ special places until they die.

    The article does highlight how you have to think globally in everything you do… No matter how legit it is.

    My Workspace – A Peek 

    When folks walk behind me in my workspace they usually go “WTF?” I have a 4:3 monitor in Landscape mode, and a 19:8 monitor in Portrait mode (kinda the opposite of what you’d expect). My main browser runs in portrait mode and is the only thing on the portrait monitor. Other browser windows go in the other monitor along with all the other crap.

    Here’s a quick snapshot of my browser (blurred) in the middle of a day… Note the gazzillion tabs – I was doing research on offshore hosting.
