Blairs doodles turns out to be Gates doodles

gates-doodles.gifThis is an entertaining story. The english tablois have been covering the story of the doodles left behind after a press meeting with Bill Gates, Bono and Tony Blair. Trust the english “newspapers” to analyze the doodles and come up with a psyche-profile.

Descriptions such as “megalomaniac” has been used. Times Online wrote:

From a few idle doodles, the experts were able to offer a thorough assessment of Mr Blair as an aggressive, unstable man under enormous pressure, struggling to keep his irritability under control

Funny thing is: Turns out it wasn’t the english prime minister, but the american multi-billionaire Bill Gates that left his scribles behind.

Fighting spam with insults?

One of my many domains have been used by spammers for a while. Unfortunately its not much I can do about it, without spending a week to try to track down the perpetrators. It has resulted in numerous bounces from addresses that doesn’t work, vacation messages etc.

While most spammers don’t use real e-mail addresses anymore, but instead resort to “steal” other peoples domains to use as sender addresses, I would not recommend doing what this girl did today. It could possibly confirm your e-mail address to the spammers. And the end result would be more spam as you move to the “validated to work spammers a-list”.

I have to admit I think it was a rather amusing e-mail, and I have a feeling she is getting more than her share of spam mail.

From: patty@example.com

Subject: YOU ARE PROBABLY A MORON.

Date: Mon, 31 May 2004 20:56:38 -0400

To: me@example.com

It’s likely that your email has reached me in error because you are simply not bright enough to type an email address properly. Kindly double-check the address of the person to whom you were trying to send your email now, and regret your shortcomings.

The technological revolution has left you in the dust. I mean, how hard is it, really, to type an email address in the “To” field of your gui email client? You are daft. You should probably just commit seppuku and do the rest of the world a favor.

If you are emailing the tourism agency for Dekalb, Alabama, you should send an email to pattyt, not patty.

Otherwise, you are either a simpering fool or a spammer, and in either case there are few things I would enjoy more than watching you catch on fire and run around screaming. You are a waste of carbon, and I don’t like you.

Have a pleasant day.

Funny story: The blimph

I awoke, the way you awake at 2:00 AM when your sleeping senses suddenly tell you without reason that the forces of evil on converging on you.

That still doesn’t do it. Let me try one more time.
