Whitelisting phone numbers

Whitelisting phone numbers

In the email world, there is the concept of blacklisting and whitelisting. Blacklisting is the act of banning certain domains or IP address from sending mail to you. This is very similar to when you click the “report spam” button in GMail or label mail as “junk” in HoTMaiL. The problem with this approach is […]

These little piggies went to market

These little piggies went to market

Starting on Wednesday, from my middle right toe right, my toes started to itch and burn. They were also extremely sensitive to pressure, and walking was difficult. My middle toe looked the worst, with a darkish red area near the nail. It could have been blisters/pressure from my boots, but that seemed silly as I’d […]

104 and I didn’t feel a thing

104 and I didn’t feel a thing

Monday. Afternoon. Sunny, but cold. I looked at my computer screen and nodded. “Mission accepted,” I thought to myself, fingers clicking my confirmation back towards my handler. I locked my workstation, shut off the monitor, and pushed roughly away from my desk. On went my riding gear, including my cold-weather gloves so thick I sometimes […]

Holiday in World of Warcraft!

Holiday in World of Warcraft!

Keerdak, my orc in charge of buying and selling things on the player-run auction house, woke up to find a giant tree in the capital city. Great Father Winter was telling everyone to get in the spirit — I think he gives quests, but Keerdak is very young and probably isn’t elligible. Suddenly Keerdak rocked […]

More than one gmail account? Check out GAlert

More than one gmail account? Check out GAlert

I am a huge fan of Gmail. My two favorite features, by far, are threaded discussions and the ability to add multiple, user-defined labels to email conversations. I like Gmail so much that I forward all of my private email through there, and have two additional accounts: one for my DrFaulken shenanigans and another for […]

The windows aren’t that tough, after all.

As you may recall, and I put in new windows for our home earlier this year. One of the nice features on these windows are two pop-out plastic tabs that are supposed to keep the window from opening more than two inches. The tabs are on the window frame and pop out about a half […]

What winter?

What winter?

The weather yesterday was cold but sunny, and while I wanted to ride my bike I got sidetracked doing other things. Bond and I were having lunch today with our friend Mr. Shush, whom we used to work with at another agency. I was determined to make the 12+ mile plus trip each way on […]
