It’s not at all surprising that Microsoft has now limited Hotmail users’ outgoing mail, to make it harder to send spam. But what did catch my eye was the following quote: About 40 percent of all e-mail today is spam, up from 8 percent in 2001, according to San Francisco-based Brightmail Inc., a maker of…
The page is updating now! Apparently Blogger was trying to post from a host that is not allowed to log in here. Not sure if this is a result of a change on Blogger’s end or our end, but I sure didn’t have anything to do with it!
A woman in Canada called a random Iraqi family. Here is the result. For some reason, this just totally chokes me up. No matter what your opinion may be on the war, it’s important to remember the humanity of the people on both sides.
Well, once again Blogger is mysteriously not working. Perhaps someday these last few messages will post.

“Officials at the Office of Tourism in New Orleans have received bags of letters and telephone calls demanding that the famed French Quarter of the town be renamed the Freedom Quarter.” Will this insanity ever end? (From the always excellent Looka! weblog.)
Rest in peace, George Latsios. I remember when Scarecrow Video was in the tiny, tiny Latona storefront location. Though it was small, I was always surprised by the amazing obscure movies that were there. So one day, I went in wondering if they would have a copy of my favorite obscure movie that was never…
The thing about having a TiVo is that sometimes we record shows and then don’t get around to watching them until weeks or even months later. Friday night Jason and I watched The 1940s House, which was broadcast on PBS back in November. In this show, a modern family is “sent back in time” to…
Google is celebrating Michelangelo’s birthday with another new logo.
