SMS Spam... it gets worse May. 30th, 2002 12:31 pm

Dodgy?


On another note, I seem to be losing my ability to spell. Anyone got any cunning ideas on how I can get it back?

Productivity today isn't great, but motivation seems to be there; I just seem to be getting a lot of LJ and email traffic to keep me busy.

I registered my mobile with the TPS and it has reduced the amount of SMS spam a lot. You can do it all online (though I can't remember the URL).

It's depressing that almost all of this comes from me publishing my mobile number on the net (in obscure places like finger info). My main threat model is now salesmen not axewielding maniacs because of their likelihood. :(

Maybe we can just lock all the axe-wielding maniacs and cold-callers in a room somewhere...
