Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Published: Saturday 2004-03-06. turns five years this year, actually yesterday it had been exactly five years since I moved the last page here from my account at MdS. An anniversary that is not as nice to celebrate is the tenth anniversary of “spam”, and it just gets worse and worse by time. Is there an end in sight?

Among the good news today we can read that the EOLAS patent on plug-in software finally has been nullified by the US patent office.

Beroende på vad man räknar som skräppost, hävdar en del att den första elektroniska skräpposten skickades 1977 på dåvarande Arpanet. Det var en DEC-försäljare på östkusten som ville marknadsföra den nya datormodellen med inbyggt stöd för Arpanet till blivande kunder på västkusten (i USA alltså). Nu fanns det en begränsning i hur många mottagare man kunde ha, så halva brevet kom att bestå av resten av de mottagare som aldrig fick skräpposten.

Och ja, SpamAssasin detekterar det som skräppost, mycket för att ALLT ÄR SKRIVET MED STORA BOKSTÄVER då inget annat fanns att tillgå på dåtidens datorer.
