The perils of net fame

A while back I wrote about the guy who created the Million Dollar Homepage. He recently received an extortion e-mail, demanding (in rather poor English) $50,000, lest a DDoS attack be launched against the site. He didn't pay, said attack duly happened, and his site went down. So he's upgrading the site security. But there should still be a lot left out of that million dollars.
