Update Oct 8: guess you’ve heard that someone was been indicted Tuesday for the Palin email hackery: Mike Kernell, 20, son of TN lawmaker David Kernell (D-Memphis.)
The young man is an economics major at Univerity of Tennessee and is facing 5 years ih prison among other things.
That’s what resetting other people’s passwords and publishing their emails can do for ya.

Here in Athens, Georgia last evening’s comedy performance by Craig Ferguson isn’t all that’s being discussed.
The recent hacking of Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin’s email accounts was finagled through a portal website based here in Athens which is for those who don’t appreciate having access blocked to various sites and online services. But using it for nefarious purposes in a no-no.
Vtunnel, a site owned by Gabriel Ramuglia, who happens coincidentally to have graduated from a school in Alaska (with no link to Palin or her government) is now preparing info on the hacker-Vtunnel user for the FBI.
Vtunnel’s link has been added to my Links List under ‘Web Surfing and Issues’ if you’d like to check it out, for as we know, Net Neutrality has been yet another casualty of the Bush administration and I, for one, am heartily disgusted with it.
Why, just last week I attempted to access a site I hadn’t visited since last year and thought I’d see what was up with lame duck Bush’s tenure being on the wane…but denied and blocked was I.
So that will be my first try at Vtunnel – to see if I can access Smirking Chimp! Care to join me?
