2010 Considered Distant Future

spam lite
Having closed my web browser with all the distracting tabs, I randomly decided to check my potententialspam folder. After I tossed out everything with the words viagra, pfizer, sale, or watch, I found several recent important messages hiding in the haystack. Examining the headers, I discovered that 3.2 (of a required 5) points were given for FH_DATE_PAST_20XX: The date is grossly in the future. I remember all the hubbub about Y2K bugs, but I'd never heard of a Y2.01K bug. Fortunately, sudo sa-update && sudo /etc/init.d/spamassassin restart did the trick... at least for another ten years. Apparently being a lazy sysadmin of your own server has its downsides…

Important upshot: If you've sent me email and wondered why I haven't responded, let me know! Send me another email, leave a comment here, ping trevorstone (a) gmail.com, etc.

I think your programming is onto something, though -- suddenly it's twenty-ten, and we really are in the future now. The distant future. Where anything is possible. This is the year that everything really gets going.
