My thanks to Tim of OpenBytes – I saw this, and thought he had covered the issues quite nicely, so I asked if I could reprint the article. Tim kindly gave his permission. Thanks Tim!
For those who’ve been wondering where I’ve been, I’m still off celebrating my Silver Wedding Anniversary. This however is an emergency.
Much to my delight I was given a pre-release copy of Lawyers in Hell to review. I was disappointed that certain lawyers who I’ve written about in the past were inexplicably left out, but one cannot have everything.
Amazon has decided not to put up with Apple’s attempt to make IBook the only application with in-application book purchasing. Amazon’s work around was to build an HTML5 Kindle Application replacement.
I hate scams. Here’s another one from my spam box. This one isn’t as well done as the World of Warcraft one. The grammar makes me cringe. But we know that these things work, or they wouldn’t be sending them out. Warn your friends and family about this.

I hate scammers. I really do. WoWAccountAdmin@blizzard.com is telling me that I’ve tried to sell my personal World of Warcraft accounts. Since I don’t place World of Warcraft this is mildly amusing. Even if I did play World of Warcraft I’m a nasty, mean, suspicious old coot, and I wouldn’t fall for something like this.
But there are people who do, so warn your friends. A copy of the full spam email is below the break for reference.

To start off I’d like to make a sad announcement. Sam, my Beagle Dog, the handsome little guy who I’m holding in the picture above, who I’ve referred to as my “Editor in Chief” (he sat beside me when I wrote every article for the last four years) died in June. He was chasing a rabbit, and it cut across a road. Sam didn’t look.
He is greatly missed by the family, and by his pack mate Rose..
