spam spam freakin spam

when you're up to your armpits in alligators, it's sometimes difficult to remind yourself that your initial objective was to drain the swamp...

i've been looking into an anti-spam solution for a bit. but had other more important jobs to do. mostly just going from fucking crisis to crisis. so now the boss wants something in place and being tested by this thursday.

so i drop the ball on a couple of other projects. i don't give a shit anymore anyway. nothing is gonna be done on time. where's your computer you say? here's 40 cents. ring lifeline and tell someone who gives a shit.

so yet again i'm up to my armpits in microsuck's isa server. miserable, mis-begotten pile of flyblown, plague infested filth. fucking around with dopey arcane settings so i can eventually bypass it's control over port 25 and let the smtp relay do it instead. finally mail is coming in again. next step is to install the software on the firewall. the install is pretty straight forward, and now we've got it in and learning about our email. and heaps of emails have [SPAM] added to the subject line, but still going through for now. don't want to drop anything. now i've gotta get email going back out through it as well. so i broke it again a few times, managed to un-fuck it and get rid of the backlog. now to try again.

fucking computers. bring on the weekend
