General Software Discussion / SPAMPAL replacement
« on: January 11, 2006, 07:06 PM »
I've had spampal running on my system for about a year now.  While it works very well at detecting spam, it HOGS my system.  I have a pretty spiffy P4 3Ghz w/ 2G of RAM.  Everytime spampal is used (checking mail) my system grinds to a near halt.  Web pages time out, response is sluggish.  I've had enough...

So what's a decent spam filtering tool I can use?  I'm currently using Becky2 Internet mail and I really don't want to change.  Something that fits in as a proxy (like spampal) will work just fine.


General Software Discussion / Program Wanted

I just installed the latest MS updates.  Now MS would like me to reboot.  I'd like to ignore that request for several days.  I generally don't boot my system unless I really need to or I have nothing else to do.  Sort of like Mouser's recent request to Not Close an app, I don't want to reboot for a while.

MS, in their annoying wisdom, seems to think I want to be reminded ever 30 minutes or so.  So they pop up an annoying "Do you want to boot now?" message.  Did I mention that it doesn't matter what I'm doing?  It pops up, shifts context to itself and wants me to boot.  Now if I were just a wee bit unlucky, it might do it just as I was about to hit the space key while typing this note.  And sure enough, it'd reboot.


Personal note to the Programmer who invented this "feature"
