Sorry for the late notice. I will not be available this evening, so
I'm canceling the WLUG meeting tonight.
Are people interested in having a WLUG BBQ this year? If so, we
should start planning for June or July or August.
i've been getting more spam over the last couple of days. It appears spamd is
not running on my ubuntu 10.04 server; however the headers of the spam
messages have X-Spam-* flags. I'm not sure what might be adding the spam
headers, perhaps its upstream (or clamav). I wanted to start using spam
assassin, but that appears to crash when i run the following, which i dug out
from the init scripts,
sudo /usr/bin/perl -T -w /usr/sbin/spamd --create-prefs \
--max-children 5 --helper-home-dir --pidfile=/var/run/spamd.pid
This line results in the following output:
May 19 17:50:03.557  info: rules: meta test T_SUBJ_BRKN_WORDNUMS has dependency 'DKIM_SIGNED' with a zero score
May 19 17:50:03.626  info: collectd: Insecure dependency in connect while running with -T switch at /usr/lib/perl/5.10/IO/Socket.pm line 114.

 8665 alarm sudo /usr/bin/perl -T -w /usr/sbin/spamd --create-prefs --max-children 5
I'm not sure what 'alarm' means. I tried running it with debugging messages, none of which seemed useful.
Below are the relavent heads from one spam message,
X-Virus-Scanned: Ubuntu Server Edition amavisd-new at ithryn.com
X-Spam-Status: No, score=3.25 required=3.5 tests=[BAYES_50=0.8,
HTML_MESSAGE=0.001, HTML_MIME_NO_HTML_TAG=0.377, MIME_HTML_ONLY=0.723,
RCVD_IN_BRBL_LASTEXT=1.449, SPF_PASS=-0.1] autolearn=no
Anyone have advice to get spamd running correctly?

If you are interested, I attended and presented at the Community Day in
Portland, a few weeks ago. It is a pretty good event.

Anyone know of a hacker space or other place in the
Worcester/Marlborough area where I can get someone's head scanned to
be 3-d printed? I found this one place, http://www.teslaract.org,
down in Webster Square, but they seem idle.
