They've been saying for years that as the population ages, we're bound to see more products targetting the seniors market. But power tools to 80-something Russian grandmothers?

Lycos Europe's Spam-attacking screensaver just too popular

Lycos Europe's "Make Love Not Spam" screensaver is no longer available for download. The company has pulled the program temporarily while it "deals with hosting and management issues" brought on by the over 100,000 people who're using it. The screensaver apparently clogs the bandwidth of known spam sites, and is already credited with taking down two such sites in China.

AIDS day banner tells it like it is - you can display it on your site.

All you fine folks who have blogs or websites of your own, and would like to honor World Aids day tomorrow should have a look at this banner put together by the viewropa posse. The banner itself will only appear at every 157th time the banner its called, mirroring the number of people who have the AIDS virus on the planet, yes that's right, 1 in 157 people carry the virus.

Go here for complete instructions and code to place on your page. All who use the banners, thank you, much appreciated, the more who use them, the more that see them (the more calls the banner gets, the more often that 157 number shows up).

Spray DDoS screensaver launches worldwide

The crazy "make love not spam" screen saver which we wrote about here: Spray gives away free screensaver that DDoSes spam-sites is a success, 9800 downloads so far in Sweden alone, lots of gigabytes of traffic has hit the spammers servers, and now they'll take over the world with it. Lycos Europe has joined the make love not spam revolution and offers the screensaver to anyone on the planet. Comes in these flavors: Italian, Spanish, English and German.
Not everyone is so keen on the idea the Register ends their "When is a DDoS attack not a DDoS attack?" report on a concerned note:

A spokesman for Lycos in Germany told The Register he believed that the tool could generate 3.4MB in traffic on a daily basis. When 10m screensavers are downloaded and used, the numbers quickly add up, to 33TB of 'useless' IP traffic. Seems Lycos may hurt not just spammers

ASABAILEY Ogilvy stunt jumps the shark twice over

Adgrunt extraordinaire Caffeinegodess has like so many other ad bloggers, gotten a self promotional email from ASABAILEY.COM. They are flogging their prank the Ogilvy hijack yet again, this time they managed to get an interview in PR Week, looks like they're milking this stunt for ten times more than it's worth.
Seems ASABAILEY can't tell their arse from their elbow though, even online which should be their forté as Caffeinegoddess noted that they brag in the interview about their superior online placing skills saying "How did we get the Ogilvy & Mather out? We got someone independent to do it for us. They sent it to Ad Rants and blablabla. Right. It's plain to see that Cup of Java , TextURL , Researcher and a bunch more ad obsessed blogs with ad obsessed readers covered it on November 6, Adrants covered it Sunday the 7th.
