My site was on the BBC 1 breakfast - well a picture of a link to it was!

I watch the - (broken link) breakfast news most mornings on BBC1 unless Emil gets his way and we watch Balamory or some other program on cbeebies instead. Anyway yesterday morning I insisted to watch breakfast for ten minutes as I had seen an advertisement earlier that they were going to interview Alex Tew. He is the guy famous for starting the million dollar home page where he is selling blocks of 10*10 pixels in an attempt to make 1 million dollars and to cover his student fees. He has been incredibly successful so far. As of now he has sold 466,000 pixels. Anway, I bought two squares a couple of weeks ago for a laugh really to feel part of the hype and placed a little logo that just says "Pete". Anyway as they talked to Alex they cut to a picture of his site, in the top left corner right where my little logo is and I saw it there. So was visible to a few million people but not my url..:-( OK, its a bit off topic, back to Oracle security.
