    Bounties should be higher

    It takes a hell of a lot of effort to audit a site whilst furiously cracking one off. Probably.

    On a slight tangent though for those of you out there thinking it must be awesome to work for a porn site, spare a thought for 3 chaps a former colleague of mine knew.

    They were graphic designers and scored a contract working for a porn site in Holland. They were all terribly excited to get started until they got there and realised their primary job was to photoshop in additional spunk around mens bollocks, faces and arseholes. This is all theybtold anyone.

    They were there for 6 months and never speak of the other sights they were privy to.
