"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer,
who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea,
his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to
drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation,
a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Spam Spam Spam
I found out today that I am a spammer. I kid you not.
Here's what happened. I have been a member of a yahoo group for a little over two years now. The group was set up to allow a group of friends who like to play online games together to keep up on when they were going to be on and share and share alike. It has since turned into the email that keeps this group of friends in contact with one another.
Well, two weeks ago, I sent an email like I have for months and months. But this time it never got through. After a couple more emails I realized that there was a problem. I could get messsages from the group but I could not send to the group unless I went directly through the web interface.
After two weeks of doing things the hard way I decided to do some trouble shooting. I even deleted my membership and asked to be reinstated to see if that would fix the problem. NADA!!
So, finally, I pinged the owner. After about 5-10 minutes he found the problem. I was being caught by its spam filters. SPAM!!! Me??? A spammer??? Okay, so maybe I like to talk/write/chat...A LOT, but spam??? I hadn't even emailed that group as often as some of the others. But alas...
My friend, the owner, approved my emails. I sent a new one and still I couldn't get through.
Back to the trouble shooting blackboard! AGAIN!
Final NOTE: the spam filter has been deleted and I am back among the friends and muchas gracias to my friend who took time out of his work day to help fix the problem.
