Spam Attack Notice

June 9, 2010

    (0609)Since yesterday afternoon I have been receiving large batches of e-mail "delivery failure" notices. After checking into it I have discovered that one of our e-mail accounts had been tampered with and used to send out what is called the "Puppy Spam". It is a message said to be from a Pamela Clemons claiming to be giving away puppies.

    I've made password changes and sent reports to my server administrators. So far I'm not seeing to much improvement as I am still getting these notices.

    If you received one of these Puppy e-mails. Ignore it, as far as I can tell your only getting one. And note, I am not Pamela and none of those messages were sent by me.

    I have also received replies from some of the recipiants of those SPAM mails. It is to bad that there are still people out there who actually feed into the spammers activities by responding back to them. They have then become part of the problem. Advice to all, you may research or have someone you trust do the research but " NEVER RESPOND TO A SPAMMER".


Don't mind the laughing

    I decided that I needed a few days off and I realized that I ran out of vacation time already. I figured the best way to get the Boss to send me home was to act a little crazy. I figured he'd think I was burning out and give me some time off.

    I came in to work early the other day and began hanging upside down from the ceiling. Just then one of my coworkers (she's'll be important later) came in and asked me what I was doing. "Shh," I said, "I'm acting crazy to get a few days off. I'm a light bulb."

    A second later the Boss walked by and asked me what I was doing. "I'm a light bulb!" I exclaimed. "You're going crazy," he said. " Take a few days off."

    With that, I jumped down and started walking out. My coworker started following me and the Boss asked her where she was going.

    "I can't work in the dark!" she said.
