Unsolicited junk mail now accounts for 9 out of every 10 e-mail messages

I thought it was mildly interesting, anyway. On the plus side, our cartooning fodder is in no danger of drying up. It's an unnatural renewable resource!

Also, let me go on record of predicting that the first computer program to pass a Turing test will probably be developed for the advertising industry. I'm not sure if I'm kidding or not.

And for something completely different, videos of stuff being destroyed:

In my gmail account, real messages account for approximately 1% of all mail received. I'm not exaggerating.

Hmm I'm feeling too mellow for the destruction of random objects.. at least via blending and sawing.

I just opened a gmail account last week to use the google documents thing for a class project. I wonder how long it will take to start getting spam with it.

I actually get hardly any spam in my Gmail account. I've been a bit more careful with it than my previous addresses, but it's not like I don't give it to Amazon and the likes.

So yeah, I get rubbish from Amazon and whatnot, but I'm not sure that that really counts as spam. I only get a bit of all that 'herbal money from the king of Mozamantidepressants' stuff.

My yahoo account gets about 1000 messages a day. The only ones I ever read are invoices from my hosting company.

My gmail account has started to get spam. I have no idea how, I've never signed up for anything on it.
Made ya look.

I only get a couple of spams a day, but most of it goes straight to my inbox because of nothing I ever told hotmail to do. Bah.

And Dusk, try a Pokemon emulator. I've been awake since three o'clock yesterday. It's five now, and I'm just starting to get tired now.

I haven't been playing Pokemon for 26 hours, but I've been playing it for a considerable amount of time. I've done all sorts of things today. I did some work, and some reading, and played internet for a while, and watched the Simpsons, and played Pokemon, then went to campus and failed to acheive anything and I played climbing wall and I wasn't very good at it and my muscles are tired.

I'm constantly impressed by the goodliness of Gmail's spam filters. I've received about 5000 spam messages since my last purge (Nov. 20), and about 20 of those have slipped past the filter. What's even better is that the rate of false positives -- non-spam messages marked as spam -- approaches zero.

with Juno, I only get a few spams a day. That's why I'm always stealing other people's lines.

Apparently, it's vinyl which is supposed to resemble weathered oak.

Clooney Mourns His Dead Pig
Hollywood superstar George Clooney is in mourning after his pet pig died at the age of 18. The Syriana actor lived with his beloved Max in his Hollywood home - and the pair even slept together in the same bed when Clooney was without a female companion. Clooney says, "He was as old a pig as the vets had ever seen. I was really sad, because he's been a big part of my life. It has been a bad year for my pets, I had a bulldog that died this year too. It's strange how animals become a bit part of your family. They really become a big issue with you." However, Clooney has no plans to replace Max. He adds, "I think Max covered all my pig needs."

I think that negates your right to criticise Goldeneye.

What's the source? I've been wondering. It's probably some obvious answer that flies over the head of me, the oblivious.

If you're bored, Dusky, you can plan how you're going to buy me a Wii. Write it out. That should amuse you for the day. Honestly.

Is the shamrock some kind of new plug-and-play cheating software? Boost on Luck for all games by 200%


Hahahaha.

Wow... those pointless sites really were pointless.
I ended up downloading the new Killers album (big mistake) then catching up on some sleep.

The problem with YouTube is that it really is a series of tubes. And so forth.

No! Bad senator- down, boy! It's really quite astounding how fast that phrase has caught on and inserted itself into common slang for the 'net...
