|09:42 am - Lessons from the Universe, part 1|
Universe: So, Michael. What did you do today?Indeed it will, Universe. Indeed it will.
Me: I got blackholed by MSN and can no longer send mail to any of their servers (including HotMail, MSN.com and anything else on Passport)!
Universe: How did that happen?
Me: I politely replied to an email to the ADF Office from an MSN user, and I got a bounce-back. It said, "Reasons for rejection may be related to content such as obscene language, graphics, or spam-like characteristics (or) other reputation problems." Maybe it was the fact that the person was using obscene language and I was dumb enough to leave their original message intact?
Universe: Well, that'll teach you to be polite!
Sometimes, there are hazards with working with the ADF Office. I mean, now I can't send mail from my email address to folks who have any MSN address, which could impact my dayjob, even though I didn't do it on university time. I can't wait to get our Networking folks involved in this issue.
On the whole, though, things are interesting in my life. Tonight is the Grove Liturgy Meeting (we're going over stuff for ComFest), and then the season finale of Smallville (_crow365__, you're welcome to stay for that, presuming I can get decent reception), and then it's off to the dollar theatre up at the Continent (not Carriage Place) for the 10 PM showing of Pathfinder! All are welcome to join me for that little shindig of Injuns v. Vikings!
Current Location: Southeast of Disorder
Current Mood: amused
Current Music: "The Great Filling Station Holdup", -JB
Ah man, I'd love to see that crappy movie.
Though no ride and I get out of my last evening class at 8:18 PM-ish.
Sounds like a great night. Damn this ocean! Oh, and a few hours driving.
Wish I could make it to the movie, but alas I, like _crow365__
, have to work tonight.

Jenni and I went to see Pathfinder....neither one of us was much impressed, lets us know what you thought (well, at least the guy was cute)
This email wouldn't happen to have been from someone in RI, would it?
I actually have no idea. All I had was an MSN address. *shrugs* Doesn't matter too much, I suppose.
Ah. I have a slight inkling as to who it might be.
