Feedback: October 2004, Published: November 2004Apologies for not publishing my feedback column.
One of the feedback items for this month, not included here, was from Nigerian 419 scammerr, Mr. James Thidiela, Retired Colonel and ADC (Military Assistant) to UNITA Leader Mr. Jonas Savimbi (DECEASED), who invited me to share in his wealth from a diamond mine. James Thidiela carefully cut and pasted his spiel into the PGTS feedback form from IP address 188.8.131.52 at the time 2004-09-29 15:01 GMT. I haven't included his email since the headers all belong to PGTS.

I have implemented a portion of code in PHP that downloads your tab del'd format of webbots and checks weather it should count a valid hit or not. I would just like to know if this service is going to be around for a while and assume that it is safe to hardcode the url in my script. Thanks Geoff http://www.spacevs.com PS: SVS is a non profit home run site and is not used for any commercial applications
