some fucking arsehole has decided to send some kind of outlook worm to a whole bunch of linux lists using one of my email addresses. I have just received about 10 or so bounce messages letting me know that mail I never sent with a subject I can't read was intercepted whilst being delivered to mailing lists I've never heard of before.

I can just ignore it, but the style of bounce and intercept message are many and varying, so there's no simple way to procmail it under the carpet. I could send a mail to these lists informing them that someone is spoofing my mail address, and suggest they don't accept mail from people who aren't subscribed to their lists (as I am not), but that's a hassle.

I decided I should automatically sign all my mail from now on, but I'm reluctant to do that because it's a hassle, and the more mail I sign, the more likely my key will be compromised (more data means increased likelihood of a crib).

Meanwhile, in the real world, I spent the last 2 days revelling in They Might Be Giants. They came to Sydney for 2 shows, and an in-store signing. I got Then and Mink Car signed by the Johns, and Lyndall got the Man It's So Loud In Here single signed... and John Lynnell said that John F misspelt his name on her single! ;) I am making the call, TMBG are the greatest rock band of all time. Both concerts were the greatest show I've seen for a while.

I'm currently listening to all my TMBG records, not quite all 270 songs, but pretty close to it ;)
