      Clever.

      Of course one runs the risk of locating the tracked individual in a vending machine...

        Or if the coins are recycled as change to another user, you might end up tracking Rosie O'Donnel after a ring-ding binge

          It's nothing to worry about... some one at CSIS took the expression "money talks" a little to literally

          If at first you don't succeed, you need more firepower.

          There is nothing wrong with feeling something when you shoot your enemies... as long as that something is recoil.

            RSS-Agent, I have to warn you that hacking your post count is frowned upon here at TG. I can clearly see that you only have 2 posts.

                You can't see all the other posts in the test forums where I was setting up the RSS agent feeds. :) I only moved that post into the sandbox because I was going to post it on TG anyway. heheh.

                    Well. I manually removed all the -rep comments. The last thing I need is for rep restrictions to start interfering with the automated RSS processes.

                    I'm looking at setting this up to push directly into the TG forums. I've always liked the whole Digg/Slashdot type concept as it's a great way to share various sites and articles that people find interesting. That's what spawned TacticalNews.com. The issue is getting people to participate. If I pull new articles added to TacticalNews.com and push them into the Sandbox, it will get people looking at the site, voting on articles, and hopefully spawning some interesting discussions!

                    It shouldn't be as intrusive as previous RSS type feeds we pulled in to TG because the activity on TN is relatively low. But there are already some great articles over on that site that are worth a read and some votes!

                      How could I miss something so incredibly obvious.
