Since my last post, I’ve been running a slightly experimental spam filter. The idea being to stop most spam before it gets to spamassassin, which is relatively expensive to run (in terms of resources).
It’s been far too effective. As can be seen on SpamWatch, processed spam has basically dropped to zero. It’s so idle, it’s given up reporting altogether.
Don’t panic, because I’m currently devising a brand new way of generating pretty graphs out of the vast array of data generated by millions of malware- infested Windows XP desktops which repeatedly attempt to connect to my mailserver in the hope that they might actually put some gibberish in front of my face that may entice me into spending some money on Viagra. I’ve a plan!
