A Forced Re-design and an Apology

As you can see the blog’s design has changed.  I apologize for any inconvenience.  Heck, it was inconvenient for me; I started out simply updating the software that runs this blog and it caused my design to explode.  So I had to create a new design immediately.


I also apologize for not posting anything new in nearly a year.  I just don’t have time anymore.  I’ll try to post new items from time to time–if time permits.


Spam from castrodeathwatch.com e-mail addresses–again

If you have gotten spam from an e-mail address ending with “@castrodeathwatch.com,” you should know it did not originate from this website/blog.

Once again, this website has become the victim of e-mail “spoofing,” which is where spammers use a phony e-mail address to mask their own.

My apologies for anyone who has been victimized by this but I am also a victim because I have no control over this happening. Just delete the e-mail and do not respond or click on any link in the e-mail to help discourage this type of thing from happening again.


Out of commission

In case you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while, it’s simply because I’ve been (and will more than likely continue to be through the end of this month) excruciatingly busy in both my personal and professional lives.

So there you have it. My apologies for any inconvenience. I’ll at least try to post something here and there until my life gets back to (ab)normal. Scout’s honor.


Spam from castrodeathwatch.com e-mail addresses

If you’ve received spam from an address ending in “@castrodeathwatch.com,” please know it did not come from me or this blog/website. It seems some spammer is spoofing (faking) his/her/its e-mail addresses by using a made up @castrodeathwatch.com e-mail address.

According to Wikipedia’s e-mail spoofing entry, “By changing certain properties of the e-mail, such as the From, Return-Path and Reply-To fields (which can be found in the message header), ill-intentioned users can make the e-mail appear to be from someone other than the actual sender,” which is apparently what happened.

So if you’ve gotten an e-mail from an @castrodeathwatch.com with a subject line that appears spammy, just delete it. Because I don’t control it, I can’t say if it contains a virus or not, so better safe than sorry. My apologies to you for any inconvenience this event may have caused you.
