Two Things

Thing 1:

George Gordon, the Lord Byron, has never looked sexier than in this portrait (painted ten years after his death, I just realized, by Thomas Phillips).

Thing 2:

That website is of hilarious (and sad) historical interest itself. There\'s a note saying that they had to change their email address because the old one had been \"harvested by the spamers [sic]\", and then they spell out the new address using a complex number->letter cypher.

That probably would have stopped the spamers cold, except that they also include a helpful mailto: link, with the address in plaintext. Oh, 2003, you were so innocent! Or something.
