Amazing "Unique" CustomerID



  • From Jon Rowett ...

    I ordered some lingerie for my girlfriend from StockingsHQ.com (I know, too much information, but bear with me). Something in this order confirmation email caught my eye:

  • Completely original customer ID... I was thinking of using the HTTP
    request source IP address of AOL users as a unique ID, what d'y'all
    think of that?



  • And I can't help but wonder... What did you buy for her? [:D]

     

    Nice links, btw. I've seen some interesting things already.

    Probably black lace-tops - add "£12.72" to the search terms.
