Diego is mad – and it’s starting here, too

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]
