Awasu » Doing it all wrong
Wednesday 30th August 2006 11:26 AM [General]

Awasu, the company, does pretty well for itself but as anyone who's been with us for a while knows, we put in a huge effort to keep piling on the features and providing support to the high level that we have been doing. But maybe we've been doing it wrong all this time.

Maybe all it takes is 15 lines of Perl script...

There is a recent fad for Japanese schoolgirls to send each other messages in basically Japanese schoolgirld l33tsp34k. The problem is that, despite this being very trendy, its very annoying difficult to do well on a cellphone. Enter a web service which, if you send it a mail, will l33tify it for your friend without having to do any work. They then charge your phone bill about 5 cents.

As Patrick says, it sounds like a bit of a waste of time, except that the company in question is doing 20 million messages a month :bigshock: Even better, they also offer a service to decrypt any l33t'ified messages you receive if you can't be bothered doing it yourself :hysterical:

Bugger, all wrong :wall:

Have your say
