Pepper seems to be an awful lot like http://www.crimsoneditor.com/" Crimson Editor. I know that CE is only for Windows, but its one of the best code editors that I've ever used!

Congrats!

Oh...it's not me ;)
Is it smart to have the winner's email address on the front page? The spam bots are smart enought to take out the NO-SPAM.

Lets have an experiment...

Hey TPV! Post back in a little while and let us know if you've received more spam than usual.

I noticed an increase in spam when I used to fill out the "Your email address" in this form. And it's definately from spambots scanning OSNews, as I haven't used that particular mail address anywhere else.

More spam?
by tpv on Wed 8th May 2002 04:30 UTC

I wouldn't be able to tell.
About 90% of my mail to this address is spam - if it went to 95% I wouldn't even notice.

I usually use my spamcop address, but spamcop's recent changes have caused me too many head-aches.

Nospam...

Yep. I use nospam@zenzer.net as an email address, and the spambots conveniently removes the nospam bit. No spam for me ;)
