a tidbit


Labelgen IconA text-to-image converter that is incredibly useful for generating email addresses that you can post on a website without fear of having them harvested by spammers. It uses a configurable cache so that it doesn't have to regenerate often-used addresses.

Labelgen is written in PHP. It is not yet released for download, but you can use it here: http://chxo.com/labelgen/

If you run a mailing list or some other web service that displays email addresses as text, please write to me for info on how you could use Labelgen (and it's caching features) to dynamically generate replacement images and prevent harvesting by spambots.
