ex machina

i don't know how long the formmail exploit has been around, but it seems like it could get ugly, given the popularity of the script:

"Formmail exploit is getting worse day by day. The real horror is that you may not even know if your server is exploited or not. A spammer can exploit your formmail script to flood thousands of Internet users with junk mail. The mail header will show your domain name and not even the spammer's IP address. Unfortunately, The recipient of spam will yell at you and not at the spammer. Such incidents have already been reported."

if you have formmail on your site, get the fix before people start yelling at you. [ via morelikethis ]

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
