Dreams can be so real…

Ever have one of those dreams that is so real and life-like that you wake up just shaken?

I had one of those last night.

It made me re-think just about every decision I’ve made in the last 5 years and wonder how my life would be different based on the changed decisions/choices I made in my thoughts.

Scary stuff. Makes you wonder how much things could be different just by a chance change of events. I usually don’t second guess my decisions in life, but there have been a few that have changed my course in life permanently and I wonder how things would be different if such a simple choice would have been made differently…

Needless to say, I was to work by 6:30 this morning…

ORDB Shutting Down

We regret to inform you that ORDB.org, at the ripe age of five and a
half, is shutting down. It’s been a case of a long goodbye as very
little work has gone into maintaining ORDB for a while. Our volunteer
staff has been pre-occupied with other aspects of their lives. In
addition, the general consensus within the team is that open relay RBLs
are no longer the most effective way of preventing spam from entering
your network as spammers have changed tactics in recent years, as have
the anti-spam community.
