Who hated Tolstokozhev so much as to hire a hit man to assasinate
him? Well, I guess you have about one billion e-mail users to
suspect. Tolstokozhev was a famous spammer who sent millions of
e-mail promoting viagra, cialis, penis enlargement pills and other
medications. Links in these e-mails usually led to some pharmacy
shop, which paid Tolstokozhev a share of its revenue. This is a well
known affiliate scheme employed by spammers worldwide. Tolstokozhev
is estimated to be responsible for up to 30% percent of all viagra
and penis enlargement related spam.

aspects, but still, quite effective.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are

so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
