Get your act together, fool!

I was able to disassemble and reassemble the dashboard much quicker today, I guess I'm getting used to it. However, I seem to have one spare Torx 20 screw, I wonder where that came from?!

I don't know if anyone has paid attention to the spam they receive, and especially the return addresses used in them. I have been a victim of joe jobbing before, but after I made some changes all unrouted mail that arrives at my domains ends up in the eternal bit bin. Problem solved? Not really as bounces still end up at my domain(s), but I don't have to deal with them anymore. But that's not the point I was trying to bring accross.

Take a look at the first part of the e-mail address. Don't you notice anything special? If you don't, you probably don't receive enough spam :) Here's a list of (partial) return addresses I know for certain :

Deboranovack - Deborahterreri - Deborasdesigns - Deborayen - Deborahsm55 - Deboramvianna

All of these are titled 'It's [insert name here]". I ran the mail headers through some tools and they originate from various IP addresses all over the world. Going by my gut instinct, this spam run is being performed through a series of infected zombie PC's, a botnet.

Now do you understand why it's important to keep up to date on patches, have a firewall running and correctly configured, keep the virus scanner up to date and not to open mails that promise instant sex with 69 virgins, or images of those acts? Your ignorance makes me deal with crap I don't want to spend time on - I'd rather be having sex with 69 virgins!
