Comment Noticable Increase, ASSP to the rescue yet again (Score 1) 389

I'v experienced the same thing -- lots more spam, mostly penny stock stuff with inline images. The first thing I did was look at the email source, and write a regex on the single-image include and put that as a email-blocking test on my spam filter, ASSP this quickly put virtually all of these spams into the blacklist of the filter; after a week I turned the regex off and ASSP has been blocking it since. I agree with some of the other posters, however, if this gets escalated again where the filters start becoming useless, I'll go 100% whitelist here.

Journal Journal: Subscriptions...

I caved in and paid for a subscription to slashdot.

I try to sooth myself by thinking it's supporting the community. The real reason was to block ads.

Well, make that one ad, specifically.

Journal Journal: scan2pdf script

So, I had a query regarding the scan2pdf script mentioned in a comment... but seem to be unable to respond.

For those who care:

# scan2pdf
# modprobe scanner if there is a fault.

while scanimage --mode binary --source "Automatic Document Feeder" --auto-eject=yes \
--resolution 300 -x 203 -y 280 >/tmp/s2pdf$$.pnm

convert -page letter -compress fax /tmp/s2pdf$$.pnm /tmp/s2pdf$$.ps
