Is Bill Gates most spammed in world?

Filed under
Misc

As you go through your e-mail trying to separate the good stuff from the spam, reflect that Bill Gates gets about 4 million spam messages a day.

But then, as Microsoft co-founder Steve Ballmer said at a company event in Singapore, Gates has a lot of help in dealing with his e-mail.

"Literally there`s a whole department almost that takes care of it," he said.

Ballmer said he also gets a lot of spam, the BBC reported, at least partly because he gives out his e-mail address in every speech. But he said his filters are so good that only about 10 pieces of spam a day get through the net into his Inbox.

We've been busy working on our next release which is much more ambitious than the previous one. As part of this future release, we had to adjust a bit how we store some information. That is why today we are announcing a transitional minor release. Behold Zanshin 0.2.2!

  • Fruits of Akademy
    For the second time I had the chance to attend Akademy, this time in cold and rainy La Coruña. It has been a week of interesting talks, good food (except for one Tortilla incident), and hacking. [...] KRunner History is Back Supposedly this was one of the reason I still saw quite a few people running Plasma 4 during the conference but now there’s no more reason not to do the switch! ;)
