Vote Today! If you are a U.S. citizen please do not forget to vote today. I found out this morning that since I have moved since my last voter registration that I can only vote via affidavit. Remember that your vote does count.
Wired: FTC: Where Spam Goes Off to Die. Great article. Apparently the firstname.lastname@example.org email address has been receiving so much spam recently they can’t afford to store it any longer. Yeah, this is indicative of a bigger problem. From October 23 to November 5, my installation of SpamAssassin has caught 10.2 MB of spam, which equals exactly 1234 pieces of spam (80k file) after I filtered out the false-positives.
MSNBC: Online job listing an ID theft scam. Never give out any more information than you have to, even if it’s not a scam.
Solo Travel: The Serendipitous Life of the Solo Voyager. This collection of anecdotes hits home for me since there is a strong chance I will be traveling solo to many, many places in the next 4-6 months. As I have already mentioned I plan to be in London on November 22 and 23 and will be going to Malta from there for 3-4 weeks with a potential week-long side-trip to Egypt and/or Tunisia. Back to the U.S. in time for the Christmas holidays.
Glasnost: Oh my, someone is selling a Russian MIG 21 fighter jet on eBay Motors. Yes, it’s real.
XUL Planet: 101 things that the Mozilla browser can do that IE cannot. “Giant lizards are cool. Much more exciting than a blue e.” I can’t even remember the last time I launched Netscape 4.x., not even for testing purposes.
