This was a silly link that Dave sent me. I found it annoying when I first started playing it, but it grew on me.


Weird


I got a strange e-mail today that I found in my junk folder. It purported to be from " Automatic Email Delivery Software <postmaster@hotmail.com>" but for some reason it opened with the message, "The sender of this message, postmaster@hotmail.com, could not be verified by Sender ID." Since Sender ID was invented by MicroSoft for the express purpose of verifying identity, it seems rather strange to me that a legitimate e-mail from a Hotmail service would do this. The body of the message read:
Dear user of hotmail.com,

We have found that your e-mail account was used to send a huge amount of
junk e-mail during this week.

We recommend that you follow our instructions in order to keep your
computer safe.

Have a nice day,
hotmail.com technical support team.

I'm going to contact Hotmail through other means than this address to find out if it's legit.


I also got a call from my bank today verifying the last few transactions on my card. The real reason for this was because of the hotel room I reserved in Nantucket next month for Paul and Jessica's wedding. The rooms are damn expensive up there because it's peak wedding seasons. Paul never fails to throw one hell of a party, though.


There are some interesting things going on over at a_steep_hill's journal...
