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.
It's with a sad heart that I learned today that Norman De Forest passed away. Although I never met nor corresponded directly with him, I always enjoyed reading his posts to anti-spam newsgroups and forums. Canada is poorer without him.
