I like that article.
I use an on line mail washer ($35 a year for 4 email addresses) and I can blacklist addresses and the emails don't make it me. I can look at the quarantine report and see if there is anything that should not have gotten blocked. I then use a mail sorter/spam filter (popfile) for downloaded mail and then on to Thunderbid. I have 6 email addresses (4 domains). I guess that it is now 7, I am looking into one in Switzerland.
A client of mine has same online washer and for a long time, some 80% of email was quarantined, some for malware, some for spam. I think it has dropped into the 50's. Only 20 some email addresses.
Luckily, they were still able to apply for $6 million from Nigeria.Smile | :)

Thanks for the link to that article. Good one.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
