11. July, 2002 - Timely bits - spam
- Welcome to all the folks coming in from the New York Times.
- I've written up my experiences with ordering a Logitech Pocket Digital camera to use with my Mac. It's not been a particularly satsfying experience so far.
- Passenger taken off flight for drunk pilot joke:
shortly after boarding when the woman asked flight attendants if they had ...
checked the crew for sobriety.
America West spokeswoman Patty Nowack said the crew decided to take the woman off the aircraft after determining that her remarks constituted a potential security problem. Yeah, wondering if your pilot can fly the plane is a pretty big risk. Or maybe the heightened security at the airports is open to abuse. Naw, couldn't be that. [instapundit]
- Defamed on Web? Just One Year to Sue, according to the New York Court of Appeals. It doesn't apply everywhere, but they're using a 1948 precedent. The New York Times article has more information. [instapundit]
- House OKs Guns For Airline Pilots. A great first step. But it looks like it'll face stiff opposition in the Senate. Time to lean on your senators. Our Senators from MN will almost certainly oppose it.
- St. Paul Saints poking fun at Selig with 'Tie' night last night. I don't see how Selig could manage baseball any worse. And now he's claiming at least one team will not be able to meet payroll next Monday. Well, fine. Fire his ass if he can't keep things running smoothly. Or maybe it'll just take the fiasco of a team stopping competition in mid-season. Major League Baseball is hosed. [fark!]
- E-mail spam never sleeps. It's going to get worse before it gets better, and the writer doesn't have any ideas for solutions. [strib]
- Salon.com on Spam. Mostly about SpamAssassin. [cam]
- No-call list cheers folks with telemarketing hang-up, but some people are receiving calls, even after getting on the list. The reason?
For a marketer to have to learn all 26 of the rules [for each state] and abide by them, it increases the chance for errors, and it increases the cost of services provided by the marketers. Don't you just feel awful for those poor telemarketers? I know I do. [fark!]
