Cat ladies turned brand-squatters poke fun at religious right

rjnerd

My person favorite of this genre

Was somewhat the reverse - the official campaign site was Georgewbush.org They didn't grab the .com, so someone else did, and put up the sort of thing that you might expect from some Manhattan leftists with the snark turned up to 12. Some hilarity ensued, but the best part they noticed later. They happened to look n the dead email box, and found all sorts of things that various campaign workers thought they were sending to headquarters. Including what appeared to be a status report on an illegal election tactic known as "Caging", where you try to get the voter registrations of your opponents party invalidated. There were a bunch of "confidential" position papers from Newt Gingrich, etc...

Microsoft celebrates the death of IE6

rjnerd

Perhaps visiting ms, but not my site

Looking at my visitor stats for the last quarter, I see the following. 8.x 36%, 6.x (the infamous one) is in second place with 24%, third is 7.x at 20%, 9.x finally shows at 17%. I get even older stuff, with 1.75% still using 5.x, 0.25% still using 2.x, 0.1% each using 3.x and 4.x.

I did get a single visitor claiming 10.x

As to overall browser use, again over the last quarter, it's 33% IE, 25% Firefox, 19% Chrome, 5% Safari, another 4% mobile Safari, 3% Opera, and Android with 1.4%. There were some visits by Blackberry users, but well below 1%.

Looking at the OS versions, XP takes first with 31%, Win 7 at 27%, Mac OS 11%, Vista 7%, Linux 3%, iPad 2.4%, iPhone 1.6%, Android 1.5%, Blackberry 0.4%. I still get visitors running Win 98,95,ME, and about one visitor a week still running Win 3.x

DNS provider decked by DDoS dastards

rjnerd

Seems that DNS registries have become someone's pet target

The US service Register.com was attacked on Friday evening, and it was late on Saturday before they were available for name lookup again. Cost me a days traffic as a result.
