In other (& local) news, a Raleigh man was arrested for sending spam and faces up to 20 years in prison!

Also, did anyone notice I was two degrees of separation away from a /. story? The column referenced my earlier work posted here. Very cool! I was halfway reading through the column and saying to myself, "Hey, I went through that too!" I'm just glad I went through that experience when I did - it looks like the spammers have evolved greatly since then, compiling their tool into binary, etc. I'm not sure I would have been able to track it down as easily as I did and as thoroughly as Mr. Berrueta did.
