I received a message on our 800 number. “This is Mark from a-website.example. Your customers are complaining to me that they are not getting my mail. And you’re blocking mail from me. Explain this to me!” I called him back and left a message: “I think you’re confused and I probably can’t help […]
I had a bit of a interesting Friday. I was so glad it was finally the weekend. Saturday we did a bunch of errands, including go visit our servers. See, we’ve been upgrading infrastructure to implement a second type of backup system. Saturday we were doing the last set of upgrades so we could install over the weekend. […]

Blogging will be light (or non-existent) for the next week or so. I leave you with Valeria and her first Christmas tree from many years ago. The kittens are older now, we can have a tree complete with lights AND ornaments. See y’all in the new year!

Ken at Popehat gets spam offering to write a sponsored post. Ken counters with what he wants out of a sponsored post. Blogging is going to be light this week. I’ve got a couple project deadlines to meet and most of my focus is on that. Plus, it’s the end of August and most folks […]
Portraits of Spammers It’s been a long week, so enjoy some art (and spam). Next week we’ll get back to discussing the many faults of Gmail. And senders. And receivers. And, well, everyone has faults. And email is Dead. Tabs killed it.
