There's no place like home

Back today from a week of traveling, conferencing, and taking a bazillion photos at the conference. (about 2 GB worth of photos at about 5Mb apiece. That's quite a few photos.) There's no place like home, especially here on our ranch in Western Oregon.

Recently I find I am being inundated with spam again. Not from or this blog, but from other sources that have gotten my many email addresses and are sending me approximately 100 spam emails per hour. I've set up captcha's on my websites' forms, but that's not the problem. The problem is just getting a bazillion spams to my valid email addresses I can't get rid of.

I have Spam Assassin turned on, on the server. I am now looking at going through various anti-spam solutions (IHateSpam from and MailWasher, to name but two) on my own computer. I have already set up numerous anti-spam filters, which catch some of it, through Outlook Express.

About spammers, my feelings on this remind me of the words of an angry mob: "Hanging's too good for them!" When I think of how much time is wasted around the world every day because of these idiots....

Your thoughts on this?
