A recent tidy up threw up the extract from the Now Show about the silliness that is schooling so I will pop it in here for your listening pleasure – or maybe because I want to mess with some mp3 playing plugins on a dull wet Bank Holiday weekend.
At 6:30 on Thursday (17/04/08) evening about 10 bounced spam emails arrived – someone having used my domain to send their spam. I had had a flurry of similar activity last year but that soon dried up. Over the next couple of days the number would edge towards 4500. On Friday 200 an hour were arriving.
Alarmingly some were “Out Of Office” auto-responses. I assume if anyone actually replied to the thing it would come back to me but replying to spam is never a good idea.
Most had the body of the message removed but from the few that had it intact it was apparently a link to bonmerfiket.net or Legal RX Medications as they like to be known. They have a splendid Anti Spam policy but you would not want to type your details into their form nor enter any financial details into their online order form – even though they claim years of experience, which is really impressive, but probably not too many customers in their early days.
If only everybody used a Mac we could be spared such things 😉
Be sure you love me whatsoever my husband says to the contrary, and let him not see this, lest he should come home, and pinch me, or kill my Squirrel.
..had us wondering just what “kill my Squirrel” referred to as there had been no Squirrel references until then.
