Colds and Spam

So, what's it like having my free time optimized for a whole week now? Honestly, with colds, fever, chills, sweats, coughing etc... no different than taking a week of sick time. But with less guilt.

Feeling somewhat better now, and catching up on email now, I'm beginning to notice that blowing the spam out of my mailbox is not unlike blowing the snot out of my nose. I use SpamAssassin, which works reasonably well, catching about 75% of the garbage. But that still leaves me about 50+ spam messages a day to wipe up with tissue.

And, of course, it's spring.. the time of year when a young spammers fancy turns to thoughts of sending offers of cheap v*1g-ra.


*HONK* sniffle snort.

Ugh, my sympathies.. but at least you don't have to go to work after you get well, either!
