Next week is Linux.conf.au.
One of the more interesting pre-conference occurances for me has been the surprising level of interest in ThreatNet (to be renamed very soon for trademark reasons).
With a number of other spam fighting methods starting to fail, people are on the lookout for new methodologies.
Which may well just mean that ThreatNet is no long ahead of its time.
How can you help me out?
Well, if you have access to a mail server (especially postfix, for which we have cut and paste settings), I'd really appreciate it if you were able to run an ammobot from now until the end of next week (the duration of LCA).
It's quick to set up and uses negligable resources (10meg of ram, no CPU and a few meg of bandwidth per day).
In particular, I'd very much like to be able to stand up at a lightning talk and show a rapidly scrolling list of events on the giant screen to the combined glitterati of the Linux world.
If you'd like help setting it up and testing, drop into Freenode #threatnet.
