Gamer oriented IM

So, a guy I used to work with at 3DO (well a couple of them, actually) is working on a new project: Xfire. Basically, it’s an IM client that allows people on your buddy list to see what game you’re playing, and for some games, will let them instantly join the server you’re on. For other games, it will give them the server details so they can find it themselves. It also has a cool “Friends of Friends” feature, to help you find new people to play against (or with) online.

Its in beta right now, and supports a whole slew of games (more than they have listed on thier site.) Check it out, if you don’t mind another chat client on your system. If you want to add me and can’t figure out what my username is, well… 🙂

I know I fixed those typoes before posting… I just know I did…

Forged Email Headers

What do you do if some spamming dickhead decides to forge their headers to make it look like all the crap they’re sending is coming from your domain?

I’ve already put a help ticket in with my hosting provider reporting the problem, and I’m archiving all the bounceback messages. I’m not sure what else there is to do. I don’t really have the time right now to sift through all these messages trying to track the culprit(s) down.


Happy New Year

That pretty much sums up my day. Not much of a new year’s post, but it’s all I can manage at the moment.
