suck it trebek

the good, the bad, and the "fuck you and the horse you rode in on, spammer"

The bad: some fucking pharmaceutical-pimping retard with nameservers in Arizona, webservers in China and Korea, domain registries in Costa Rica, a telephone operation in Great Britain, and a pool of hundreds or thousands of compromised computers to relay his mail through - mostly ADSL users - has decided to use random text strings as the reply-to in his spams... so I'm getting about 200 bounce messages per hour from spamfilters catching his shit and/or bad addresses in his list.  And there isn't jack shit I can do to keep that from happening.

The (relatively) good: at least it's not 1,500 bounces per hour like last time.  I'm not sure if that's because this one's using a cleaner list, or it's just harder to pimp as much bulk through a rotating pool of hacked home computers than it was through a real server leased through someplace shady a year or two back.

And as for the third part... just try to order some sketchy meds from or or today.  No, really... try.

epicurean delight

In addition to spammer flambee avec pommes frites, tonight's menu consists of seared pork tenderloin, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, scallions, broccoli, and cauliflower florets.  Accented lightly with garlic, soy, and lemongrass, accompanied with chinese white tea, and eaten with chopsticks.  Mmmmmm, good.
