Whats configured into your MTA?

I was wondering the web looking at random items, when I came along an article at http://www.worldwidecreations.com titled Stopping spam before the door with SpamCop and IPTables Its a great article with a lot of information and code on how the author is able to grab the offending hosts and place them within IPTables.

Its a great article with a lot of information and code on how the author is able to grab the offending hosts and place them within IPTables.

One thing that I really can’t agree with is the use of IPTables to block mail traffic from an RBL that has in the past and present block many legitimate hosts and email. I’d rather have spam to my account marked as spam so that I can be the judge and correct any false positives. At the moment, all my mail using using Exim with sa-exim (SMTP time spamassassin scanning). This allows for messages to be bounced back at SMTP time!

What is everyone else using for an MTA and how are you filtering spam?

Technonia announces Slimline DAP -

Filed under:


While we're pretty sure the world doesn't need too many more thin, black MP3 players, Korean manufacturer Technonia thinks otherwise. The company has announced a rather MPIO-ish portable audio player -- the 7.5mm thick Slimline. This little guy does pretty much everything you'd expect from something in its class, and really, truly nothing you wouldn't. Those things include playing MP3 and WMV files, tuning in FM radio, and displaying your images on its 1.5-inch OLED screen. 1GB unit on sale by the end of the month in Korea for 90,000KRW (or about $97US).

[Thanks, Doom]

Writers Write “B-Logs,” Get Money

This is an interesting read of other people in the business that write all about technology and get paid for it. I guess we're all trying to get to a point in our life where we can do something we enjoy and also be financially stable at the same time. This is a good way to start.
Writers Write “B-Logs,” Get Money -

arringtonmalikx.jpgUSA Today, that bastion of hard news, is covering a new fad popular with the kids called “B-logging.” They talk about two “b-loggers,” Om Malley and Mike Orvington, who used to work at real jobs and now eat ice cream and write about computers.

Now I don’t know who these people are or what they think they’re doing, but I think it’s bad to show people that you can make “real money” — how much, Om Malley? $5? HA! — doing this. There are jobs that Americans should be doing — car repair, HVAC installation, dance instruction — that are going empty while these two jokers sit around all day pretending to work. For shame. “B-logging,” like stamp collecting and religious observance, should be considered a hobby and nothing more. Let’s not encourage these bozos.
