News.com is reporting that Intel's upcoming Itanium Montecito processor will not have X86 support, except via Intel's software Execution Layer. They claim this pushes X86 application speeds back to current Xeon performance levels. Does this mean Sun's Jonathan Schwartz is even more right when he says Itanium and HP/UX are dead?
I recently spotted a site http://www.mail-filter.com/ that fights spam by providing email addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc. The idea is that you can "switch off" any address variation that gets spammed. Plus you can identify the web site that leaked your email address to the spammers. Seems like a nice idea - has anyone tried similar strategies?
