More email nonsense

Someone gave me a heads up that aliguori at us ibm com is bouncing right now. I took some time off before switching to being a full timer at IBM (to spend some time w/family and do a little traveling). I go back to IBM on September 6th. I was expecting that my ibm accounts would stick around until then but it doesn't seem that way... Either way, my codemonkey.ws or utexas accounts can be used instead.

Email Glitch

My cable modem gave out late last night and since I'm out of town I won't be able to restart the stupid thing until September. Fortunately, I was able to bring up a quick relay so that @codemonkey.ws email is now going somewhere. I don't think it was down long enough for retries to timeout but if you sent me an email between midnight-8pm CST today, you may have to resend. If mail servers are caching the MX record aggressively, it'll definitely bounce. On a positive note, I discovered that I can use my utexas account as an authenticated SMTP relay for @codemonkey.ws. Lately, I've been getting a lot of outgoing mail rejected b/c my cable modem's network is on a few blacklists since they're dynamic IPs. This should provide a solution until I get back to Austin and colocate a real server somewhere.
