Really was having trouble staying awake in the office until about 3 or so and then I seemed to get on a bit of a roll and have an impressive blitz on the spam that's been building up over the last week or so. Beginning to have an idea of a few more things I can script instead of doing by hand, which should begin to make the current approach more tenable again for a while. We really do need to get the system upgraded so we can use something like SpamAssassin instead though: there's only so much you can do based on the source of mail, and we're doing it, and it's quite clearly not enough any more. We're fighting a losing battle. Still productive afternoon, which left me feeling a bit more positive.
Hope Jan's job interview went well anyway, and that she got there in one piece and not too much stressed.
Aha, and our connectivity is back so I can post this now after all.
