Filters don’t work. IP blocking doesn’t work. As soon as something gets stopped, like blocking messages with a certain subject, they start putting random things in there instead.

Excellent set of articles here about spam. It’s a huge problem, and it’s likely to only get worse. I do wish to have something change about it, but I’m not sure what. When people start talking about “do not spam” lists, or requiring email accounts to be traceable to the people who […]

I went up on the roof to check […]

I’ll be done at this current job in a week. I’ve been at Leisure Host for a year now. That’s the longest I’ve had any job. I’ve been everthing from IT manager to construction crew to secretary here. Mainly, it’s been IT, network support and fixing computers when they mess up […]
