Slept well. Which wasn’t great when I had to be up at 6:30AM to take Dillon to playgroup. Went back to bed. Spent the bulk of the day typing up a conference notes Took Sasha out for a walk she was actually pretty well-behaved for once came across another dog and she’s actually fine. Now this is really weird. I press function key twice on the MacBook Air, and it’s only asked me if I wanted to install dictation software. So I said yes and after a five minute download update came with a small microphone icon. And the rest of this blog entry is now actually being written using voice dictation I will keep actually all the spelling mistakes and grammatical errors into making our if any gesture amusement purposes and to Jesse accurately actually is. Went to the gym this evening and a body pump then came back and did a bit more work. I then sat down for about an hour and started adding fracture to the Las Vegas helicopter video. I am going to stop the dictation mag because it is making some very amusing errors.
That was fun. Okay I haven’t mentioned Ubuntu in a while, I’ve been getting some quite bad spam for a little while so wanted to black list some sender email domains. Now using postfix, here’s how to do it. First create a file in /etc/postfix and call it sender_checks. Then inside that file add the domain name followed by REJECT followed by any comment you want to send back to the sending server, I use ‘No spammers’. Then you need to turn that into database file, so run ‘postman hash:/etc/postfix/sender_checks’ this should produce a .db file in the postfix directory. You need to edit the /etc/postfix/main.cf file and add ‘check_sender_access hash:/etc/postfix/sender_checks’ to the ‘smptd_recipient_restrictions’ line, usually best at the beginning. The only thing you have to do then is ‘postfix reload’. This will then block all the listed domains before they get anywhere near the mail box.
