They always call during dinner

My computer’s out of commission today (I’ll report on my experience with BFG Tech’s RMA procedure when it’s over) so I’ve had to check my “Google for your domain“-hosted email from the web interface instead of remote desktopping home to use Mozilla Thunderbird.

I do love the Gmail interface but I have many email addresses for different purposes and it’s less of a hassle to check them all using one program. Unfortunately, while using Thunderbird I’m not made aware of the effectiveness of Gmail’s spam filters (except when I curse them for getting a spam email twice every week or so). Goodness gracious have I taken that feature for granted!

I estimate receiving perhaps 8 spam emails in my primary inbox per month for the account illustrated below. Compare that the number of spams I don’t get (in 30 days):

About Brian Damage:

Who is Brian really?
I live in Toronto, Canada, and work for an IT firm. That's about as much real-world info I'm comfortable divulging here. What you read on my blog is the real Brian, but, for the sake of freedom of speech, I feel most comfortable leaving a gulf between my cyberspace and meatspace personae.

Who is Brian at work?
My ridiculous job title is "Marketing Specialist" since I wear so many hats at work. I'm a technical writer, a specialist in enterprise search technologies, an electronic forms designer, a newsletter author, system administrator... but I'm in the Marketing department so for the time being I'm stuck with this inauspicious title.

Who is Brian at play?
