Phishing contest at 90 mile beach?

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Peter Huebner, Jul 29, 2010.

  1. Haven't see any phishing emails for many many moons. Suddenly I got 3
    paypal trialists and 1 asb one yesterday, and another asb one today.

    Wonder what's going on. New botnet rented out to scammers?

    -P.

    You can be sure that all real ASB emails have all links going to
    asb.co.nz or mail.asb.co.nz. They've done that ever since I sent them
    a reply that questioned the expertise of their technical people!

    http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mil

    Före år 1649 hade varje landskap en egen definition av mil.
    Här följer några längder för olika landskapsmil i dåvarande Sverige:

    * 1 finsk mil = ca 6 000 meter
    * 1 Smålandsmil = ca 7 000 meter
    * 1 Ångermanlandmil = 6 666 famnar = 11 875 meter
    * 1 västgötamil = ca 13 000 meter
    * 1 dalamil = ca 14 485 meter

    År 1649 infördes enhetsmilen som motsvarade 10 688,54 meter (= en Upplandsmil).
    Den delades även in i 4 fjärdingsvägar om vardera 4 500 alnar eller 2 672 meter.
    En mil skulle representera avståndet mellan gästgivaregårdarna.

    Genom 1665 års regelverk infördes följande definition:

    1 svensk mil = 3 600 stänger = 6 000 famnar = 18 000 alnar = 36 000 fot = 10 688,54 meter.

    Från år 1889 då metersystemet slutgiltigt infördes blev 1 mil (nymil) = 10 km = 10 000 meter.
    Denna typ av metriska mil var ett mått som antogs av den dåvarande unionen bestående av Sverige och Norge.
    Andra länder i världen nöjde sig med att använda kilometer.
    I Finland används mil (på finska peninkulma) ännu ibland som namn för 10 km,
    dock mycket mindre än i Sverige och inte mera officiellt.
    Redan under den ryska perioden, innan metersystemet togs i bruk, var det ryska "verst"
    (på finska: virsta), 1 067 m, mycket vanligare.

    Those Scandinavians had very long strides then. The word mile comes
    from the latin for a thousand, and meant a thousand paces, counting on
    the right foot only.

    Yes and that is what the article say.

    Den ursprungliga milen var den romerska,
    som motsvarade tusen dubbelsteg (paces) eller omkring 1 483 meter.
    Ordet mil kommer från latinets mille=tusen.

    mille=1000
