Bogus gov online test tells people on dole they're just SO employable

Re: Just "View Source" on the final page to see the magic at work...

Yep it's all there in Javascript and HTML - in fact you don't need to go to the last page it's all contained in a single page.

No matter how disconsolate you may be your answers will pseudo randomly attribute to you 5 of these 'strengths':

var strengthNames = new Array("Curiosity", "Love of learning", "Critical Thinking", " Originality", "Social Intelligence", "Perspective", "Bravery", "Dedication", "Honesty", "Kindness", "Loving", "Teamwork", "Fairness", "Leadership", "Self Control", "Carefulness", "Modesty", "Appreciation of Culture", "Gratitude", "Optimism", "Spirituality", "Forgiveness", " Humour", "Enthusiasm")

massively long list of "var strengthDescriptions" snipped by mod - if we have to click 96 times to get to the full source code, so can you lot!

Google gags Facebook code leaker

Anyone lost a dog?

Here's how to be stealthier when stuff like this comes your way. Don't post it up in a blog post saying, "Look at this cruddy Fastbuck/Microsludge source code I found". Post it up on a blog, saying "Found: one bunch of cruddy source code. Will return to owner on application."

Shoddy work again from FB

Facebook's dubious diligence and Stalinist tendencies also manifested themselves last December, when they changed their internal country codes without warning, and lots (all?) existing UK users suddenly found in their profile that they had moved to "Cote d'Ivoire". I think there are still loads of us in virtual exile there.

Scientists shun Web 2.0

Correction but no clarification

I see you've corrected the last sentence, but it still doesn't make much sense to me!

Over my head

What's the last sentence mean? It was obviously supposed to be something witty.
