The other day I posted an entry with the question, “how long will it take a spammer to find an email address on my web site and send spam to it?” Some readers took a shot at guessing how long it would take (without going over), with the winner collecting a special DVD from my personal collection.
Here are the guesses:
Yesterday, November 30th, 2006 at 7:17 PM, I received my first spam message from the IP address 22.214.171.124, which is tied to an organization called Fastweb (apparently I won something from the MEGAMILLION E-MAIL COMPUTER LOTTERY).
That makes the official time two days, seven hours and 56 minutes. Which means Dustin wins. Noice jorb. Your CD will be in the mail at some point, along with some junk mail.
