Fake News Script

'Fake News' is the first PHP script I wrote. I wanted to learn more PHP, so in 2005 I wrote this as a more robust version of similar scripts I had seen online. This script can be easily implemented by anyone with a website and ftp access. You simply modify one file (with some basic info) and upload everything to your server.

As the name says, this script is for sending fake news stories to people. Simply fill out their name, city, etc. and it will send them a customized ridiculous news story.

This script was written in early 2005. It was distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) beginning in 2009. If you would like to modify or redistribute it you must keep the license and copyright information intact.
