Crikey! First Gerbils, now Spam!

I was just checking my old email address. This is just wrong:

{buzzword-bingo 4:17pm} ~ =>msgchk
You have 5921 messages (24294794 bytes) on xxx.xxx.EDU
{buzzword-bingo 4:17pm} ~ =>

I'm pretty sure I checked it sometime last week (when I was playing around with the Carlsbad pictures). So at most it would have been about 7 days since I checked it.


That's about:

756 emails / day
32 emails / hour
40 bytes / second

or an average of 1 email every 2 minutes.

The depressing thing being that I think I only recieved 50-60 legitimate messages in the last week.

Furthermore, in the amount of time it took to incorporate all that mail (i.e. inc; rm inbox/*), I recieved another 11 messages totalling 34296 bytes. Ick.

  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
