Get James Bond in here: 13 million account passwords plundered from 000webhost

John Mayer tweets remorse over Playboy interview


At Last!

The Reg finally has got an opportunity to use the "n-word" in the disguise of reporting. I must say I am truly proud of the feat you have achieved and I hope to see more more full mention of the "n-word" in future.
