Click here. A lot.

The Gravitizer spam was funny the first time. "See it in action by clicking here." Indeed. Now that I've gotten the same email 20 times today, I'm ready to see what happens if I simulate clicking there about 1000 times a second.  I wrote a little unix script to find out.

until [[COWSCOMEHOME]] ; do \
set X=0
while [[ $X++ != 1000 ]] ; do wget -b -o/dev/null >&2 ; done;
echo .
sleep 1

I hope that's their own server, because that kind of transfer on a hosting service would eat into the profit margin a smidge if I let it run long enough.
