Blogging Is Good For You

Posted on

Oh my!  All this blogging and dealing with codes and enormous amounts of new things has finally awakened me to the care and maintanence of our company’s own website.  I had always left that up to the college student who had cobbled together our website over 10 years ago but now that he’s moved on…

I’m deleting all the spam in the mail boxes…over 4000 messages, urging our sales department to “Beware of fake pills”, “Download software now!”, “Hey dude, all top brands available”, and all sorts of friendly sounding messages from well-meaning lovely ladies that I dare not open.

Now I remember exactly why we never put contact buttons on the website before!

Besides finally waking up to the spam epidemic I am also learning about CSS and fonts and really fun stuff.  I can’t seem to learn enough fast enough though.  As I’m deleting emails more are coming in!!!  What the heck do I need to know about “Human Growth Hormone”?  Grrrrrr.

Here’s the weirdest one: 

The subject line read “needle cast oyster mushroom”

About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!

  1. You need to get a spam filter on that e-mail account, MB! Sounds like an opprtunity to get another CO-OP student in to help out. Often the computer departments at colleges will allow work terms for credit. You should check that out.

  2. You are so right, Lorna. I will be looking into that as soon as I delete these last 440 emails. I probably will be able to handle it myself with a spam filter. Eeesch
