This is a useful site if your sick of getting junk mail (SPAM) and want the user to be reported to the ISP. GET YOUR OWN BACK

http://www.showipaddress.com/

What you do is open the e-mail, select "view" then "options" or right click while it's still in the inbox and select "options" in the pull down menu. A window will open showing you, amongst other things, the internet header for the e-mail. Highlight and copy the whole text of the header. Now forward the mail, a new window should open. Replace the subject text with the word "ABUSE".

Type in the main message window "Please report this user for abuse" or something similar. Press return and then paste (ctrl+ V) the text of the internet header in the forwarding e-mail.

Next highlight and copy the ip-address number of the sender of the e-mail. It looks something like this 89.228.245.59. and you'll find it within the header you pasted

Go to the above website and click "WHOIS IP". Paste the ip-number you copied into search box provided and click "WHOIS" You should see a list of details of the ISP who is controlling the user. Somewhere in the list is a abuse@xyz e-mail address or sometimes it's just an admin e-mail. Copy the address and paste it into the "to" address box of the forwarding e-mail you opened.

Press send and feel satisfied that you are doing your small bit in this cyber world to rid some of the w*#!kers who are continually filling our in-boxes.

I quite a fan of webcomics (comic strips that are only made online). My favorites are the furry webcomics. For those not in the know, the furry genre is an artisitc and literary genre based on anthropomorphic animal characters. (i.e. An animal with a human characteristic)

He is a list of some of my favorites.

Newshounds - An American satrical webcomic set in a local TV News Channel.

Poisoned Minds aka SSDD - A more adult, sci-fi, British webcomic.

Funny Farm - An bizarre American webcomic about six animals in a boarding house.

Kevin and Kell - American webcomic about a not-so-average family. Kevin's a rabbit, Kell's a wolf.

Jack - A horror webcomic set in hell, about the embodiment of wrath.

I would add the following web comics to the list

www.toothpaste for dinner.com and it's sister site www.marriedtothesea.com - both contain gloriously silly single-pane cartoons, with a new one every day.

toothpaste for dinner is sometimes absolutely hilarious but most of it is just too silly.

Just a fantastic site, with loads of fascinating information, from the grave of King Arthur to cybernetic hearing.

Here's a website which I found recently which I'm enjoying. It's the website for The Colbert Report.

The Colbert Report is a spin-off to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Sadly, we don't get in Britain, but it features several videos on their website. The show stars the satirist Stephen Colbert as right-wing political pundit Stephen Colbert (pronounced "Co-bare"). He is discribed as a, "well-intentioned, poorly informed, high-status idiot." Basically, think Alan Partridge if he was successful.

The show is notable for inventing the word Truthiness, meaning, "to describe things that a person claims to know intuitively or "from the gut" without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or actual facts."

Here's a site that allows you to type in the name of a TV show, and it tells you the next time that show will appear on TV in the UK & US.

I tried it for "Whose Line is it Anyway" which I've been loving on "Dave" but has inexplicably been on hiatus for the last couple of weeks, and sure enough it's back on today at 2pm. Hooray.
