STUPID WEBSITES : Visited Dallas Morning News' web site, who asked me to register first before letting me read. So I did. Except that the stupid registration form allows me to indicate I'm from Singapore (and not U.S.), but insists I enter a 5-digit ZIP code. (In Singapore, it's 6 digit postal code. I'm sure there are other countries that uses alphanumeric postal code.)

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

So what do I do? I faked the data. Now, Dallas Morning News have a visitor from Singapore with a ZIP code of 12345.

Nowadays, it's so darn difficult to be an honest man.
