Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 17, 2019

Lamplighter: Droogie decided his new vanity plate should read "NULL." ... Droogie's hope was that the new plate would exploit California's DMV ticketing system in a similar manner to the classic xkcd "Bobby Tables" cartoon. With any luck, the DMV's ticket database would see "NULL" and consign any of his tickets to the void. Unfortunately, the exact opposite happened.

It honestly could have gone either way. If he tries it in other localities, I give it a good chance it might work as he expected.

The fact that it works in any way at all is a vulnerability.
