Busy day. Teleconference at 7am today. Unfortunately all the actions out of that were mine (build a plugin to detect empty emails according to certain criteria and log in our RADAR system). To be completed today. Bah.
Instead I set about to do everything BUT the one thing I had to do.
Cleaned up messagelabs.com being listed on rfc-ignorant (someone thought our postcode was wrong on our whois record - how lame is that? Seems like a spite listing to me)
Fixed some bugs on our dns builder.
Improved connection throughput in qpsmtpd running on our spamtrap.
Wrote a webpage about why I block emails with foreign characters in.
Made our spam signatures 5 times faster (at the expense of more RAM).
After all that I was rather tired and didn't want to do the thing I was supposed to do. But I decided to just push on and get it done.
So I finished that too. I'm rather tired now, need to go lie down
In other news, at the weekend we went to the St Jacobs' Farmer's Market - a fantastic market with all sorts of fresh fruit, meat and veg. We managed to find a butcher who had lamb necks! They were completely unfilleted, so I had to do that myself, but the price was certainly right - we arrived at just before 4pm so he wanted to get rid of them - we paid $25 for 5 full necks (that'd cost me at least 20 quid in the UK).
Made Jamie Oliver's North African Lamb with Couscous last night for the In-Laws. We forgot to buy chillis, so it was rather mild to say the least, but still delicious. Filleting lamb necks is hard work though - must try and find a butcher who'll do it for me.
