  • So those are the little things that slow you down in your efforts to release and maintain 5.8.1. :-)

    I am not sure whether I got it. I no longer look too closely into my spam-inbox. And the times when I actually read some of the spam (for having a good laugh) have long passed.
    • Well, this "duck" dodged my spam filters, and I was kind of curious of what's up with that, since as people noted, there was no viral payload or address-harvesting links in it...

      I spent much of Friday and Saturday retuning my spam filters for the "you have a virus" bounce storm of SoBig.F (still going at the rate of 400-600/day for me...)
      • > still going at the rate of 400-600/day

        Ummm. I don't know where I got that number from. About 200/hour is the right ballpark, so about 2400/day.
        • Argh, it seems that I have completely lost my arithmetics these days. Those who were paying attention noticed that there was no sense in my calculation since there are in fact 24 hours a day, not 12... let's try once again: it looks like I get 1600-2400 spam/virus/bounce messages a day. In the beginning of August I "only" got 200-400 a day.
