I've got a friend of a friend who needs a SQL programmer for a bit of consulting ASAP. Ping me if you've got the time and skills.
So, sometimes when I have to give out an email address, I make a custom email address so that if it gets spammed, I can turn it off and I know who did it.
So, long ago, before I started this, I gave livejournal one of my regular email addresses - one that is no more or less defunct due to the amount of spam it gets.
A while later, I created lj at isnt.com which I eventually had to redirect to an auto-bounce as it started receiving regular spam.
At that time, I created lj2 at isnt.com which I have now started receiving spam to.
Keep in mind, I have never sent an email from these addresses and the only place I've given it is to my livejournal account. Now THAT email has begun to receive spam as well and will be shut off shortly.
My conclusion: LiveJournal has a leak which allows spammers to get their email addresses. Whether this is a mistake on LiveJournal's part or if they sell their email lists is unknown to me, but I will soon be receiving no emails via LJ.
My friend Keith is a bit of a bicyclist and enjoys bike camping.
He's doing a weekend trip later this month - leaving sometime in the late morning on Friday April 23 and returning home sometime in the evening of Sunday April 25th.
The idea is to take a back road route from Hudson WI to LaCrosse WI and back guerilla camping along the way. If anyone who chooses to accompany him doesn't have the legs for it (it would take something close to 100 miles a day to do it), he's fine with cutting the mileage short but prefers not to cut the duration of the trip short.
Anyway, if this sounds like something you'd be interested in joining him on, contact him. If you don't have his contact info, contact me and I'll put you in touch with him. Sadly, I can't join him this time around, but have done a few of these through the years and they tend to be fun.
