Needless to say they raised the bar this year. Up until 2007 it was just a hidden field in the form. In 2008 they added a checksum - this delayed me a good five minutes while I worked out how they'd generated it. This year they've upped the ante, including both a different checksum and adding a salt to it. Another five minute's playing with bash revealed the exact combination of timestamp, delimiter, and phrase necessary to get a correct checksum. I am also made of cheese.
Naturally, don't bother emailing me to find out how I did it; the fun is in the discovery!
