SpamAssassin is not perfect

Thursday, December 18th, 2003

SpamAssassin is not perfect, but it sure is nice.

It has already blocked over fifty emails just this morning! I’ve switched to using it for my personal email account a short while ago and it’s been keeping my inbox clutter-free since.

(Unfortunately, I messed up my Bayes filtering in my email clients around the same time and I accidently marked a lot of legit email as spam. It’s fixed now, I think, but may have lost a message or two in the process. My mail is working fine now, at least I hope. *smile*)

A Purpose DrivenŽ review in the making…

Thursday, December 18th, 2003

Charles Sebold over at is currently reviewing The Purpose-DrivenŽ Life. He’s already done Day 0 (Introduction) and also Day 1.

It’ll be interesting to see the points Charles brings up as his analysis of the book unfolds over the next month or so, especially considering what some others have had to say about the book.

I’ve read his web log (the Living Torah Journal) for a while now and have found that he has a lot of great insight (in addition to being a fellow computer geek, one who uses Linux and Mac OS — and even Emacs).

Watch Lord of the Rings

Wednesday, December 17th, 2003

What’s all this Lord of the Rings hype about? You can watch the complete LoTR epic on the ‘Net already! (Quicktime needed.)

More info on the above version of the film is available. It’s probably the only movie version of LoTR where Frodo wears a fedora. (:

In all seriousness, I plan on watching the film on Thursday. Reviews are already out and everything looks very positive thus far.
