My email is currently down. The problems I was having on my Linux box have not gone away, and as a result I’ve had to shut down my mail server. My friend Mark (who is hosting my box) is looking into it, but things don’t look good. Looks like it’s been hacked in to.
So, my naive view of the world on-line has been shattered. Spam, viruses, trojan horses, and hacking-in-general have been introduced into my life in a harsh way. Long term this is a valuable lesson to learn. At the moment it couldn’t come at a worse time.
