Language Tricks

You may have seen this one in an email forward...

I think it is quite clever and amusing:

He is my friend, but I have never checked his LiveJournal before, so I am linking it here as a reminder.

Record sound & video on palm1 Treo 600!

Ryan Rife has programmed two applications for the Palm/Treo: SoundRec and MovieRec.

I think he's making some excellent progress, and to think, he's virtually doing it for free.

Check it all out on his web-site: infinityball.com

I definitely plan to revisit in the near future and make a PayPal donation.

Damn spammers. If they put him in jail, won't he have internet access there too? I say, move him to a third world country.

I use SpamCop.net with great dedication. As a result, I only get a few spams a day. I think it is much better than using filters, which require maintenance/management, and scanners, which sometimes block good emails yet miss spam. It may take up to a few months to produce a noticable reduction in junk email, but it will get many of those jerks off your back with continued use.
