Contact Form Spam

Not seen that before: This morning I received some spam through a web page. However, this was contact form spam that was promoting software to spam contact forms. ffs… I suppose at least I’m convinced the product works, unlike most of the contact form spam I receive. Not sure I’ll be following it up though.

Following my recent mention of Dark Pattern UI design, I thought I’d share this, which I was sent this morning – seems more than appropriate!

Ski, ski, ski, crash, bang.

Just spent an awesome week with friends and family in Les Carroz! Highlights involved almost empty pistes every morning, rides on Piste Bashers, high speed runs, big air, free beer, high speed crashes (I still can’t walk properly), great food and, oh, did I mention we got to ride in a piste basher?! Pics from flickr are emeded below, you’ll have to forgive the one of me in makeup – it’s a pic from the end of the ‘Circus’ themed fancy dress night.
