sideloaders.com is spamming me

Friday, March 26th, 2004

I just got the SPAM email below offering sell me Omega 4D MultiLoaders
(whatever those are).

Clearly they got my email from scrapping the web or somewhere because
they send to marc-at-tradeshow@nozell.com (from one of my blog
entries), marc-blog-feedback@nozell.com (used only here on my blog)
and marc-i-saw-your-weblog@nozell.com (same thing)

What also pisses me off is they included this graphic so I had to
download 130k of their junk — three times!

REMEMBER: Don’t do business with companies that use Unsolicited
Commerical Email (UCE) to market. It is an unethical marketing
technique. Thanks!

RSS feed for debian package a day

Wednesday, March 17th, 2004

Andrew Sweger has come up with an cool use for
blog + RSS — educating people about one GNU/Linux debian package per
day.

I have set up a service that publishes the name and description of
adifferent Debian GNU/Linux package every day. My goal is to
encouragepeople to explore Debian more and discover great software
they might notknow was there (with over ten thousand packages, it’s
easy to overlook a few gems). It is implemented using a LiveJournal
free account called “debaday” (sounds Australian to me now). Please
feel free to pass thisinformation on to other groups you think may be
interested.

Anyone can read an HTML version of the current postings at:
http://www.livejournal.com/
users/debaday/

The service is also freely available as as RSS feed at the following
URL:

http://www.livejour
nal.com/users/debaday/data/rss

I’ve added it to my Amphetadesk feed…

No green in sight today…

I’ve seen things, I’ve seen them with my eyes…

Excellent non sequitur flash to
on!

Here are the lyrics, but they don’t do the song justice.

I've seen things
I've seen them with my eyes
I've seen things
They're often in disguise

Like
carrots
handbags
cheese

I've seen things, I've seen them with my eyes
