I have been firewalling China (the whole world, actually, except North American/ARIN registrants) for years on my company's servers. That alone cuts our spam load by 75-80 percent. RBLs and other measures take care of most of the rest, and server logs indicate less than 3 percent of spam gets through. That seems to be the equilibrium point between blocking spam and false positives.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Adding yet another (unnecessary) layer to an already bloated setup.
Well, I think the fact that PHP and other non-MS developments are not locked into a single OS platform carries a lot of weight. Develope a website in
Programming and web development are not really my main gig. I just started this more as a favor to a very good client in my "day job" consult work.
My assembly language skills were on Data General and DEC mini computers, so do not translate very well to modern processors/languages.
Very old nerd nerd here. "I knew Alan Turing. Alan Turing was a friend of mine...."
Troll? Really? For not liking
Yes, it is ASP.NET, so maybe I am painting with too broad a brush.
Nonetheless, I still prefer PHP and other open languages to the cloistered MS offerings.
I recently had to revisit my former life in programming and "update" my language repertoire (from assembly language and FORTRAN) in order to maintain and update a client's website--written in

Does the formidable Slashdot collective intelligence have any idea why Microsoft does this?"

Somewhere in the miasma of bandwidth-wasting childish prattle, someone might have answered this, but I'll go anyway.
Back in the day when print press type was set by hand, it was difficult to keep track of certain things--partly because the type was set backward. It was, for instance, difficult to distinguish between "p" an "q" when viewed backward, hence the phrase, Mind your p's and q's.
Likewise, it was difficult to discern the beginning and end of sentences, further compounded by limited font availability. Editors, too, who spent/spend all day reading/correcting manuscripts found them difficult to read after a while, so easy-to-read manuscripts received preferential treatment. Thus, doubles-spaced sentences and paragraphs became the standard.
Today, with desktop publishing and automatic text justification, extra spaces are unnecessary and actually counter productive. So, if banging out something on a typewriter, two spaces. In a word processor, one space.

Why the parent is modded "Offtopic" is beyond me. TI's draconian attempt to control what consumers do with, to, or on property that they purchased and own is reprehensible.
So, fuck you TI, indeed.
