Spam (10000)

February 29, 2008 0

One day I decided not to manually clear my Gmail spam folder and let it grow. Today, after about 30 days, it finally reached 10000. If I get $1 for every spam mail I am forced to read, I can quit my day job. Today…

What are the odds of finding someone with the same name having the same hobby in Singapore? In July 2007, I found a colleague with the same English name as me. In that post, I also mentioned another Chester in my secondary school. Around 2005…

It seems as if I am not blogging as often, but actually I am. It’s just that I did not publish the posts, and so they are left as “drafts” in my blog admin page. Why did I not post them? Because, quite often, the…
