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?

Samsung’s Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive

Good Idea, but is it practical? Will there really be a difference while booting and loading data? Waiting for Solid State Disk's will be a better choice, Dell's new M series laptops will have 32G SSD's.
Samsung’s Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive -

hybridhdd_lg.jpgNo, this hybrid hard drive isn’t actually sexy (though it is topless) and it is difficult to get excited about hard drives in general. But, since Samsung’s still an underdog in the category, the company’s doing its best to innovate the space instead of just cranking out larger sizes (though it did that, too). The 2.5-inch MH80 notebook hard drives feature 256MB of integrated flash memory to help you boot faster (though only about 10 seconds faster), wake from hibernation mode faster and get up to 25 percent more battery life for your laptop (though that’s compared to Samsung’s own M80 HDDs).
