Out of the Blue

Something odd is happening on one of my email accounts (basically unrelated to this site). In investigating a missing email I noticed that besides having failed to receive the mail in question, I also am receiving a suspiciously minute amount of spam through this account, which has no spam filter, and has historically collected hundreds of unwanted messages a day. Now obviously I don't *miss* the spam, per se, but I was concerned enough at the prospect that I'm losing messages to call my ISP to investigate. So far the cause of this situation has not been determined, but in the meantime I find the fact that I called my ISP to complain, in effect, that I was not receiving enough spam pretty darned amusing.

Spam Links! Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.

So, I'm replying to my own post...

Anywho (yes, it's 10:30pm or so), memory's installed - bumped up to 768MB, and significantly faster. Whatever I did inside the case blew away whatever Windows remembered about ANY of the hardware, so it's in process of reinstalling all drivers...
