13:22 jspath55: I see Craig. I do not see the spoon.
13:22 ewH: @thorstenster yeah, no issues here
13:22 ewH: What spoon?
13:22 qmacro: thorstenster: I can see Craig; perhaps a black screen would be better

13:24 thorstenster: Now I can see & hear him in Firefox (after changing IE proxy settings  )
13:25 ewH: are we watching FMR live or did Craig just accidentally turn on his camera while he was thinking out loud?
13:25 jspath55: nslookup
13:25 tonkapome: thieving SOBs
13:25 thorstenster: It’s somebody in China apparently.
13:25 jspath55: Except author’s names!!!!
13:26 ewH: speaking of things from China, someone sent me a message from there yesterday to let me know I won a 750 million pound reward!
13:26 thorstenster: And what’s as bad: No comments and discussions
13:26 ewH: so like nigel, this is my last day at work too!
13:26 thorstenster: Part of the reason for blogging is getting good comments and discussions going
13:27 thorstenster: They’re taking that value away from the ppl who use their site.
13:27 tonkapome: British
13:27 ewH: haha, good question
13:27 tonkapome: pounds?
13:27 jspath55: I emailed an abuse report to the ISP host.
13:27 thorstenster: @ewH And you didn’t quit your job immediately?
13:27 sappro: Everytime we update our sendmail server we get hacked within 5 minutes from Chinese IPs, just funny
13:27 thorstenster: @ewH Oh, I see you did!
13:28 ewH: @thor well, I wanted to hang out for FMR first…but after this, Im outta here
13:28 jspath55:
13:28 thorstenster: @ewH I see, you’ve got free internet at work. Need to use that as long as possible.
13:29 sappro: There is a tool out there that checks to make sure your content is not copied, I have a lot of my blog posts copied with little bit of content changed slightly
13:29 thorstenster: I didn’t say that, at least not seriously. Theft is just theft, no flattery.
13:29 thorstenster: Did anyone see my comment re: comments and discussions?

13:35 jspath55: Hi Jen!
