Last night

Went to "Summerfest" last night, which is a stupid new name for what was previously called "Taste of Beaverton".

Got free tickets (otherwise $15) by some nice lady at the gate who had extras.

Kenny Loggins was performing.

Drank, ate, sat around.

stupid form

The O'Reilly speaker registration form has as a required field the "check in" and "check out" dates for my hotel, to "better coordinate" something or other I skimmed over.

Since I live in Portland, I ignored the red asterisks and submitted anyway. It bitched, of course.

Instead, I entered "I live here" for hotel and my birthday and expected date of death for check in and check out.

Yay stupid forms.

DHCP users

I followed tydel's advice and setup danga.com's postfix to not accept mail from DHCP addresses. If you try to send mail to me or anybody @danga.com now from your home DHCP server, you'll get:

554 DHCP Pool clients should use their ISP's mail server

Tailing my mail.log, it sure is rejecting a shitload of messages!

But really, you shouldn't be running an MTA on your DHCP address anyway. I know this will block some geeks who just want to run their own mail server, but they should be smarthosting it elsewhere.

Next step: ClamAV? That's the one you recommended, right scsi?
