… I am extremely busy at the day job at the moment. Today was a deliverable for the project I am working on. There are at least two deliverables to go, and final acceptance testing was supposed to start on, oh, August 31st? Yep, you could say we’re under a weeeee bit of pressure to get things finished. As a result my time on my uISV consists of responding to an email or three a week, and the odd transfer from Paypal to my bank account. I hope to get “caught up” with it after we’re out of the woods at work. I have the data from Oct. 1st through 15th stored for folks who are interested in stats, and will try to get that posted tonight or tomorrow night.
As You May Have Guessed…

Blatant Plug For A Program I Like
I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I like Direct Access, and use it on a daily basis (and by “daily” I mean “I type in a Direct Access shortcut about every 30 seconds to five minutes while working, but I do this every day, so thats daily”). You can see my full review of the program earlier on my blog. Actually, perhaps review is the wrong word to use: that implies objectivity, and I’ve got none here: I love the program like I love chocolate. Anyhow, the reason I’m mentioning it out of the blue is that another site I rather like, Bits Du Jour, is running a one day 50% off sale on it. So, if for some reason you’re still fence-sitting, you can get it for $20.
Dealing With Email Spam
Steph of LandLordMax fame recently posted about how to deal with email spam. This just happens to be the focus of my day job (we’re busy exploiting the synergies of a new paradigm of… actually, no, I don’t work in Dilbert’s office). I use spam filtering religiously on all my email accounts (4 at last count) and it saves me roughly 2,000 spam a day (my business email address is forwarded to by my college email address, which was widely circulated back when I was young and stupid).
