I was checking out the web traffic to my website and I noticed something really funny. One of the things I have posted on there is my first obfu that I put here
. There was a section of crypted code that showed in google as a keyword (why anybody would search the web for oyinplqgurwwce.p5ivph0xpw
I'll never know).
One of the other links that google found with that piece of code in it was a pdf document (I think it is in Italian).
I scanned through the document
and on page 44 the code that I posted on Perl Monks shows up in a section titled "Fun With Perl". The author does reference PerlMonks.org for the code. I actually feel
honored that it is being used; but I am wondering if I should email the author and ask for a specific acknowledgment that I was the one that wrote the code.
What would you do?
