Brothels in Kent
According to the venerable site that is The Register, a search for brothels near postal code TN12 7EA shows a police station. Also mentioned is a pointer to Dutch academic research material archives, and a new way to use Skype for the classic scam. Yes, the 419. In other possibly equally venerable (or otherwise; I'm not intentionally judging them) spots:
- Pope John Paul II to be beatified -- apparently. (Hey, that's what the article title said, anyway.)
- Pope Benedict's creature comforts: and yes, the answer to the all-important question is
he took his upright piano with him.There are other (useful) sections to read, though.
- Voicemail hacker could face prosecution:
Telecom has yet to decide if it will take to court a hacker who tapped into the cellphones of one of their executive's and other public figures.
- Computerworld investigation: Multiple victims of 027 hack:
Police and defence staff are among those whose voicemail has been accessed(earlier story).
On a different tack, I ended up buying the 'special edition' of Brooke Fraser's album. Unfortunately, the bonus DVD suffered pretty much the same fate that Centre Stage (which I can't seem to find right now) suffered on my computer -- it wouldn't play. Odd. It did when put into the television, so I'm still happy. Just someone don't tell me I need to send the computer in again for warranty service. The lack of a local authorised warranty centre gave me quite a shock in courier charges. The transportation charge was peanuts, but once the postal worker got to the compulsory insurance bit... apparently whole computers are quite a risk.
More books will be scanned from about Monday week. Watch the bookshelf. As for the quick table, it wasn't much of a success, but I might keep it anyway.
