human spam robots from India – bellamclaine@gmail.com judymclaine@gmail.com

I am getting quite a bit of human initiated spam from India. Spammers are looking for blogs that have comments turned on that mention particular keywords. The paragraph they leave then tries to fool you into thinking they are a real poster. All they want is the link back to their spam site. Of course links are all nofollow’ed on wordpress anyway so there is no google juice, just potential users clicking through to their sites.

I have wp_hashcash installed, so the spammers are using a real browser with javascript turned on. Cheap labour I guess. This sort of manual spam is hard to detect automatically via the usual channels like akismet or javascript puzzle solving.

Here are some traces for others to see.

giving to those who have everything: usefulgifts.org

I had a party for a significant birthday on the weekend. I really didn’t want people to go out and buy me a gift. What do I need as a gift that I don’t have already, or couldn’t go out and get if I so wanted ?

One thought was to suggest firstly that people didn’t need to buy me a gift. If people really wanted to purchase something I asked that they buy a truly useful gift at TEAR Australia’s http://www.usefulgifts.org.

What a lovely surprise resulted. Not only did people ignore the request not go buy something, they shopped at the web site and gave cash on the day. The total gifts given were as follows ;

4 x Safe Water, 4 x Food Security, 4 x Goat, 1 x Toilet, 1 x Tree Seedlings

I am touched and humbled by your generosity guys, thanks so much. It is the best gift I can think of. Not only have I always wanted a small flock of goats in my honour, but now I have a toilet with my name on it also !

Here is a shot from the party, with a real cow, sheep, horse, pig, dog and cat-thing that was also purchased in my honour.

In the interest of transparency, here are the PDFs that the web site sent when a gift was purchased. One goat was purchased via a printed form.

Movie Review: Casablanca

 casablanca

OK I realise that I will probably no longer have any movie cred once I admit that I only just saw Casablanca last night. My first thought was `wow this is so crisp’. Did they do something to make this 1943 black and white movie so clean and beautifully detailed ? It looks gorgeous.

It is hard to judge a movie filmed so long ago, especially when the art and technology of film making has moved so far. I did cringe at how the movie portrayed the war in a condescending Hollywood sort of way – glibly detailing how the war impacted `those foreigners over there in Africa and Europe’.

Still, it was nice to see those famous snippets I’ve seen over the years get put into context in the movie. Bogart is cynical, gruff and believable. Bergman is not the beauty perhaps one might expect of a movie nowadays but she was shot in soft light and her eyes sparkled in every shot.

So perhaps part of my movie education is now filled in.

Movie Review: Bride and Prejudice

Bollywood meets Jane Austin. One of those movies where you aren’t sure if this was meant as a comedy or not. So this leaves you nervous wondering if you are meant to laugh, cringe or just enjoy the fluff piece that this is.

Jane Austin-philes will hate what has been done to their classic tale, but if you know that you are in for an over the top dance singsong in the style of Bollywood then you might just be able to enjoy this movie.

The mother of the 4 girls in the story makes this movie for me. She was sooo over the top obsessed with getting her girls married off. Her character was great. I got a hint that you were meant to just laugh and cringe your way through this when a shot with a choir singing in the background panned back to actually reveal the choir in full attire. Great cheesy stuff.

Movie Review: Australia

 

Australia is a big, long movie that will surely become a classic, but I would think firstly it will achieve this status overseas.

It is definitely worth seeing, only small criticism is that it is a little wooden. There were several audible swoons from the audience at the hunky Hugh Jackman. Kidman was credible too. A movie on a huge scale, I really hope they make their money back. Very positive depiction of aboriginal characters. A grand, romantic, action movie with some free history lessons thrown in.
