IPv6 intro creates spam-filtering nightmare

Donovan Hill

smtp relay

Most clueful users will be using SSL to a submission port anyhow. And clueful admins will have this set up for their users to access.

VPN Access

I'd rather pay for VPN access than "Verify my age". Something about it smacks of "nanny state".

But it's for the children.

Go John Galt

Deprive the leeches of their ill-gotten gains. Stop producing. Let the world self destruct.

Cost cutting - from desktop to toilet

We did have toilet paper

We had toilet paper and paper towels (which were switched to a regular towel). However, one unlucky schmuck had the privilege of cleaning the washroom and vacuuming the office (single room with 6 guys at one point).

I think I did the cleaning once, maybe twice. The last time it was "my turn" was during my 2 weeks notice. Needless to say, I didn't do the cleaning that week. I think I still owe them $10 for missing my turn.

Mozilla, Skype join iPhone jailbreak fight

Don't people get it?

It Apple only wants "approved" applications on the iPhone, then I say, "DON'T BUY AN IPHONE!" Vote with your frickin' wallets people! I cannot understand why people would buy a product like this KNOWING that the vendor(s) have it locked down. If you want to live in Apple's straighjacket, then fine. If you don't, then get a different phone! Again, VOTE WITH YOUR WALLETS! DON'T BUY THEIR LOCKED PRODUCTS IF YOU WANT IT TO DO MORE THAN THEY WANT YOU TO DO WITH IT!

I remeber years ago...

Chris C:

I remember years ago when Shaw Cable claimed that people using hardware firewalls were stealing internet simply because they were using one IP for multiple pieces of hardware. If you wanted local filesharing or printer sharing their solution was to purchase more IP Addresses......

I installed a hardware firewall.

Block France?

Firewall them at the border. That should work.

Apple bans iPhone app for changing version number

Why are people buying this?

Serious... I don't get why everyone is into the Jesus Phone when it seems like Steve the Father likes to ram his adherents up the keister....

I must've really missed something because I wouldn't be caught dead buying some sort of crippled device like that.

I ditched my Fido E62 (used on Rogers) for an E61. _I_ paid for the phone, so now I own it. And the E61 has Wi-fi which means I'm not dependant on _anyone's_ cell network.
