I have Spam! Thousands of it!

I think that I get more spam than anyone on this earth! In the last month alone, I got 11196 (I got six new spams between the period of taking the screen shot and posting it on the blog!). I don't bother much with them. Gmail takes care of most of them :) If you get more spam, let me know... But I seriously doubt it!

Windows XP Service Pack 2 Nags!

I tried it! I was not happy with it at all :( Nags are not a good thing! Especially when it comes to security... In other words, don't try this at home... Say no to the security options thing when your Windows XP is updated with Service Pack 2. Furthermore, save all the stuff on your desktop somewhere else, because SP2 erases everything on your desktop, at least it did on my home PC!
