Over the last few days my spam count has decreased dramatically. While I viewed this with mixed emotions - I still get excited by the thought of new mail (How sad is my life Hunh ?) even if it's a invite for a new new Viagra variant. I then discovered that it's all accumulating in my gmail spam folder. Hats off to the gmail guys. They filter spam far far better than Yahoo or Hotmail does. I dunno how they manage it but it effectively blocks about 95% of my spam. Good stuff. And on other topics life is going to be so boring. No excitement no chaos- I might as well go back to advertising if it continues this way..

Happy Good Friday and Other Trauma
Well here we are on Good Friday. The Lord Jesus who died for our sins blah blah blah. I don't have to care about this. I really find it difficult to believe in organized religion and as such care only about the fact that it means a day off from work. If only I hadn't got so many people over. I do like my peace and quiet and increasingly find it difficult to have people over.
On the original topic of organized religion Khushwant Singh describes a conversation with the Dalai Lama which was quite brilliant. While discussing the after life and reincarnation the Dalai Lama said that there was such a lot of evidence and instances that these couldn't be wished away. The point which Mr. Singh was making was that these seem to be prevalent amongst religions which foster such beliefs. The low incidence of such amongst Muslims makes it seem like a self fulfilling prophecy. Anyway to give the Dalai Lama credit he did take it in the right sense and laughed out loud. Mr. Singh - Quite incredibly observant....

Long Time No Post
The other day I met my postman. For some weird reason he knew me but I had no clue who he was. I think I see him about once a year around Diwali but thats it. And the weird thing is he probably sees way more people than I do. So either he's customer centric or I have a memory like a old ZX Spectrum. I suspect the latter is true. BTW does anyone still miss the Old Speccy ? I do miss the thrill of playing Zynaps and the trauma of loading programs from a tape recorder. Ah how I missed the instant joy of the Plus D and the 5 1/4 floppies. Dammit today some of the mega GB games on the PC take longer to load than those. Seems like we're coming full circle
And on another note Mom is here. Amazing what a man will do to change his lifestyle when a parent is around. Can hardly believe that I am doing what I am doing. Perhaps everyone in the office is right. I am ready to get married ? Decisions Decisions Decisions. Now only if someone decides to propose and end my trauma....
