Spam Volumes Drop by Two-Thirds After Firm Goes Offline

The volume of junk e-mail sent worldwide plummeted on Tuesday after a Web hosting firm identified by the computer security community as a major host of organizations engaged in spam activity was taken offline.
Experts say the precipitous drop-off in spam comes from Internet providers unplugging McColo Corp., a hosting provider in Northern California that was the home base for machines responsible for coordinating the sending of roughly 75 percent of all spam each day.
Well crap! Where am I going to get my Canadi3n M3dz?

Man loses job and licence after posting video of foklift stunts on web

A MAN who used YouTube to share images of himself doing stunts on a forklift has lost his job and licence.

The video, which has now been removed, showed Matthew Garry Ward doing burnouts, crashing into concrete pipes and overloading the forklift so he could do wheelies.

Ward, 20, of Seymour, north of Melbourne, was ordered by the Seymour Magistrates Court to complete 50 hours of unpaid community work and a five-day occupational health and safety course.

This reminds me of the German Workplace Safety video.

9 minutes of workplace hilarity.
