I know exactly how he feels. Will the shit-storm ever clear?

it climbs up and up

It's getting worse. I received 154 pieces of spam yesterday out of 159 total emails. That is like a 1:31 signal to noise ratio. I wonder if there is a defined standard somewhere that says that some ratio is the point at which signal becomes useless because there is too much noise. I wonder. You know, if I didn't have Apple's Mail.app to filter all the junk out for me I think I would just go insane. It will be interesting to see if the number increases today and then keeps on increasing or if it's more of a bell curve over the week and it will be slower on the weekends. I will keep you posted.

spam revelation

139 junk emails yesterday. So compared to the 102 from Monday, I guess it was considered a holiday after all. Only three more PT appointments left. I asked Larry what his thoughts on the Bowflex were and he said that if you are going to buy a machine that is the only one worth it's weight. So that is about as good of an endorsement as I think one can get so I guess I'm going to go ahead and get one.

smothered by spam

So I finally got around to checking my paulbaker.net email account after reformating and reinstalling my Beige G3 a few weeks ago. I had over 4000 new emails in my inbox. I would venture to say at least 3500 of them were spam. Probably more. This is becoming epidemic. I received another 102 junk emails over the course of today. Memorial day...102 junk emails on Memorial day. What the fuck!? Don't these assholes ever take a day off?

my return

I'm back to the world of blogging. A lot has taken place since my last entry in April. Let's see to recap the last six weeks, I tore my right MCL rollerblading, went to the Dada concert, had my first MRI, paid $500 for a knee brace, and started six week physical therapy program, saw Identity, went to my cousin Shawn's wedding, saw The Matrix Reloaded with the guys from work, saw X-Men 2 with my mom, closed NTR's bank account with Kai, saw The Matrix Reloaded with Kevin and Jenny, went to Valerie Breslin's graduation party, and last but not least, saw Bruce Almighty.
