” I’m mad as hell… and I’ll take it for one more day Kevin Werbach is right. This last day could very well be the day email died. I am still getting one email per minute. I am even more pissed off at Microsoft. And even though I am seriously looking at how to do whitelisting/challenge-response in cc, I know that’s only half of the solution since emails still clog my server inbox, and at 110 MB per day it’s nothing to be sneered at.
If this keeps up I will ditch email. I’ll give it one day, starting now. In the meantime I am looking at the latest version of Red Hat Linux. I still use Win XP as my OS, and I have to use it for development and such, but this is just abuse, even if I haven’t been harrassed as others have been. The great Microsoft exodus should begin momentarily.” [via d2r]
