NOTE: Apparently I wrote this around early-August, but never posted it, so I posted it today after finding the draft in my WordPress.
– Updated to WordPress 2.3.1. Apparently some security fixes as well as normal feature updates. Requires a DB upgrade, so be sure to hit that admin link to do the DB upgrade.
– Have been tinkering with using GMail IMAP as a spamfilter and integrating with Thunderbird 2.0+. Using forwarding from old POP3 accounts, I now have a couple extra GMail accounts (for keeping some IDs separate), managed to delete about 7 Thunderbird account profiles and now have GMail spam filter working in conjunction with Thunderbird Junk Mail filtering. I wrote it up (roughly) here: http://health.malcolmgin.com/Using_GMail_to_Filter_Spam
– Mostly doing SharePoint 2003 maintenance at work while we also prepare for SharePoint 2007 (finally – my last job started with 2007 in November of 2006). I’m also doing various other system engineer stuff like working with maintenance, licensing, support, etc. for some other interrelated products my team supports. Still learning, though, so I’m OK on the happiness & fulfillment side, and my commute totals about 3 hours less per day, I mostly get every other Friday off, and I have time and a partner with which to hit the gym 3-4 days a week, work permitting.
