I hate spam. Since I'm the only person @ sliver.com, I get loads of it. I've finally found an email filter (www.cloudmark.com) that filters almost all of it, but I still must sift through its hits checking for false positives, as no filter is perfect. What a pain.
Anyway, this study is a must-read for anyone with an email address (that's you), as it discusses a six month study primarily covering _how_ spammers get your address(es) and how you can prevent that from happening. In short, the vast majority of spammers get your email from crawling the web and there is a pretty simple way to prevent that from happening that resulted in _zero_ spams. Not bad considering they got over 10,000 spams over their test period.
 They put their email addresses in normal, human-readable ("jeff.key at sliver.com"), and machine-readable (html-encoded, ie. &xxx;) on web sites, in NNTP newsgroups, in the WHOIS database, and many other places.
Windows Server 2003's storage architecture hasn't been getting much press, so this article was a pleasant surprise. Win2k3's changes are not limited to refinements to existing technologies (dynamic disks, DFS, etc), but include a number of new and exciting features that not only make management easier, but make Windows' place in the enterprise much more palatable due to its vastly improved SAN support.

 If you're into that kind of stuff.
 Windows can now finally run as a "diskless" OS.
