old roomie!

I don't get to see Kathy often enough. It seems like it's once every month or so, over a couple beers. But we did get to catch up tonight, and we're all going to a concert in a couple of weeks, which should be fun, knowing Kathy's party personality.

I miss her, and I miss her ridiculous martinis.

my best idea for spam yet

I haven't seen any false positives AT ALL for mail which Spamassassin's Bayesian classifier gives a probability of 0.7 or better, so I just wrote a procmail rule which takes any such mail and simply throws it away. Anything lower than that that spamassassin still catches due to other rules I feed back into the classifier to reinforce it. My inbox also feeds back into the classifier as "ham" to reinforce its decisions in the other direction.

But the vast majority of my spam gets that magic 0.7 or above (most of it is 0.9+ and I'm even starting to see some 0.99+ probabilities now), so it's suddenly like I'm getting very little spam.

Yay!
