Obfuscate your email address

We all know that there are many robots out there crawling our sites look for email addresses to send spam to. We also know that we need to try and hide our email addresses to make it harder on the crawling robots. This usually involves referencing an ASCII chart to get the correct hexadecimal codes for each letter and symbol in the email address and then manually typing them into your code.

So, I figured someone out there must have automated the process at least and a little bit and I was pleasantly surprised to find this site:

They offer a nice simple script where you put in your email address and they convert it for you. Cut and paste to your code and you're done.
