My Webloc Archiving Script

I cleaned my Powerbook’s desktop off this morning. The script is now posted at: Making Webloc Archives. My script merely reads the .webloc files, extracts the url, grabs the site’s favicon if there is noe, then uploads the link to a web site.

My delegate is still spamming

My elected official, who obviously believes that opt-out is only for suckers, is now on my mail server’s blocklist. Bad riddance. I reported her again. This time she was connected through a Comcast connection. Let’s see if they can get her to stop. Of course, I won’t know, since I shouldn’t see her drivel any […]

The site these logs are generated from is a small site that is not actively updated any longer. I don’t want […]

My State Delegate spams, or at least doesn’t honor opt-out requests

I was once a part of my state delegate’s bill reading group, as well as have talked with her about issues in the past. But now she emails me at my regular email address, not the tagged one I asked her to use. So I finally have filed a spam repor. Hopefully the postmaster -at- […]
