stopping what never ends?

This morning I was greeted to the fact that I had 500 spam messages picked up by my Gmail Spam Filter over the past 9 months (not including my deletions). Can we really stop spam ?
AOL thinks so, check this article _here_.

Seems a short electical blackout always gets you thinking about wasted time, whether that be wasted time working or wasted time not working. A reminder of my first bit of advice for small business & home offices, grab one of these small UPS / battery backup units from APC. The Back-UPS ES 350 has a USB connection to power down your personal workstation/ notebook upon battery drain. Cheap insurance.

Novell Linux Partners listed

This morning the postman brought the new Novell Linux Partner Guide with the Oct.2005 Issue of Novell Connection magazine. I believe this to be the first modern day compendium of Novell software compatibles (hardware & software). The _link_ is only reachable with a PartnerNet ID, but the public page yields similar results _here_.
To my surprise, I found a list of Novell OEMs with their software preinstalled in-the-box _here_.
