Cool Hardware...

I recently acquired a VIA Eden board. It is a very nice design, measuring about 20cm by 20cm and including everything except SDRAM. Just add memory, disk and power. This board would be an excellent web-farm component, or with something plugged into the PCI slot, an excellent firewall and/or wireless gateway. Now if only I could find a suitable case for the board.

Cool Software...

The flow of spam to my inbox has been increasing recently. Finally I have reached saturation point. I have discovered SpamAssassin. It uses a combination of heuristics and databases to determine a score for each message. Early results are encouraging - my inbox is much more sane that in recent weeks. It is interesting that in the last few weeks both Barebones Software and Apple have shipped or announced the inclusion of spam filters for their MacOS X email products.

Grrr... why does advogato change the <p> and </p> tags, breaking the structuure of diary entries ?
