Matts (email not shown publicly) I work for MessageLabs [messagelabs.com] in Toronto, ON, Canada. I write spam filters, MTA software, high performance network software, string matching algorithms, and other cool stuff mostly in Perl and C.
Finally managed to get my laptop sorted after it died a few weeks ago. Well, not sorted, per-se, but Sony are dragging it away on Tuesday to look at it. Hope it comes back shiny and new (i.e. I hope they give me a new one!)
