Okay, so this one's worth mentioning... a black-hat hacker's diary on ZDNet: they paid two professional scam artists to record a diary for a day, and the results are really interesting. Most interesting is the fact that they rely on AOL's screen name == login name policy as the starting point for the spamming that is their main source of income. Me, I like my anonymity.

Work got interesting today for the first time since it started; I have to convert some Excel spreadsheets into Access databases, but the formats are completely different, so I may have to learn VBA to write some code that does the conversion for me...

A really interesting new concept: Extreme Programming. A bit of a misnomer, it's actually a new set of rules and strategies about how to develop code as a team; it is apparently extensively field-tested and has been very successful, and people who've tried it like it a lot. I wonder how Warwick will react if I tell them I've developed a strategy for my end-of-term project that involves coding in pairs? :-)
