For some reason, the nanny filter at work blocks morsex.com as a pr0n site.  ::) ;D

:-), they also have the website "mtechnologies.com" as a workaround to the Scunthorpe problem. BTW I bought a "Chinese Army Key" from Morse Express a few months ago and have been very happy with it.

Refused web domain names and email addresses[edit source]
In April 1998, Jeff Gold attempted to register the domain name shitakemushrooms.com, but he was blocked by an InterNIC filter prohibiting the "seven dirty words" which was active between 1996 and the transfer of control to ICANN.[3] (Shitake is from the Japanese name for the edible fungus Lentinula edodes.)
In 2000, a Canadian television news story on web filtering software found that the website for the Montreal Urban Community (Communauté urbaine de Montréal, in French) was entirely blocked because its domain name was its French acronym CUM (www.cum.qc.ca);[4] "cum" (among other meanings) is English-language slang for "semen".
In February 2004, in Scotland, Craig Cockburn reported that he was unable to use his surname (pronounced "Coburn") with Hotmail. Separately he had problems with his workplace email because of the string cialis within his job title of software specialist. He was told by Hotmail to spell his name C0ckburn (with a zero instead of the letter "o"); Hotmail later reversed the ban.[5] In 2010 he had a similar problem registering on the BBC site where again the first four characters of his surname caused a problem for the content filter.[6]
In February 2006, Linda Callahan, a resident of Ashfield, Massachusetts, was initially prevented from registering her name with Yahoo! as an e-mail address as it contained the substring Allah. Yahoo! later reversed the ban.[7]

I was looking for calligraphy pens a few years ago, and one of my "co-calligraphers" suggested I try a search for "Pen Island".

Looks innocent enough, until you run the two words together.  Didn't go any further down THAT road!

Except that the links vector back to the pr0n site...  ;D

Well, there's morse pr0n, then there's tube pr0n.

For tube pr0n, I usually go straight to RCA Transmitting Tube manual TT-3. http://www.junkbox.com/electronics/rca_tt3_manual.pdf check out the 803 cutaway on page 4, and the 833 on page 89 :-)
