Sixteen Horsepower playing Joy Division’s Heart & Soul

Não conhecia estes Sixteen Horsepower, mas esta cover é obrigatória. E por falar em Joy Division, dizem-me que o o novo filme sobre Ian Curtis, Control, acabadinho de estrear por Cannes, está muito bom. Esperemos que não demore muito a chegar cá ou vou ter que me virar para os backups distribuidos. Sixteen Horsepower playing Joy Division’s Heart & Soul

vpopmail + dot-qmail + spamc

Suppose you have a qmailadmin box with vpopmail installed. Suppose that you just want to enable spamassassin for certain mailboxes and the spamd is a remote service cluster. I’m lazy, you’re lazy.
