you are hereDisposable e-mail addresses: I recently proposed a way to permanently foil spam by giving each subscriber a whole domain of e-mail addresses and letting them set up an unlimited number of transient subdomains. Ron Bell points out that Yahoo Mail Plus ($30/yr) offers just such a service. Called AddressGuard, it works this way:

AddressGuard lets you easily create a large number of disposable addresses using a simple template: You choose one base name, and you can create up to 500 disposable addresses by choosing different keywords. Once you have secured your base name, you have full control of the keywords you want to use. For example, if you chose dairyman88 as your base name, you can create or, etc.

Messages sent to any of your disposable email addresses will be automatically forwarded to your Yahoo! Mail account, and you can decide to direct these messages to a specific folder. If any of your disposable email addresses start getting spam, you can simply delete it and messages sent to this address will start bouncing instead of filling up your account.

Small Press, Big Ideas: The Princeton Architectural Press has kindly sent me a few of its newest releases. If you have an interest in design, photography, or landscape, check out their site. I especially like You are Here: Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination — for lovers of maps, real and metaphorical.

More Wild Women:
In my list of Wild New Women of Salon Blogs, I conspicuously missed Patia Stephens’ Montana Musings, another budding Blog of Place. And since she asked so nicely, I should also point out Katy’s er…unusual I Am Eating My Husbands’ Soul.

Creating Shitty Jobs: Palmerhaas, responding to the jobless recovery, points out that the Onion hilariously predicted this eighteen months ago. Unfortunately, it’s not as funny now that it’s come true.

More Dirty Business: The Massey Energy Inez Kentucky coal slurry spill in October 2000 was a much worse environmental disaster than the Exxon Valdez oil spill, but has received almost no media coverage. Massey Energy is a big contributor to Republican coffers, and is pushing to get the anti-environment Bush gang to fire the investigator so it can all be hushed up. Salon picks up on the story.

Another Multimedia Goldmine: Albino Blacksheep archives Flash and other multimedia shorts from a variety of sources, with topics and treatments both poignant and whimsical. The Miniature Earth is a powerful profile of our planet as a village of 100 people. And for pure unadulterated silliness, try Colin Mochrie vs. Jesus H. Christ.

    Please also welcome Jill Blevins a fellow Ptown blogger. Jill is writing about her battle with an eating disorder. Someone who you would think is nuts is just like you or I only skinnier… Her journal is right there.

    Thanks, Dave, I know you are deliberately subduing your enthusiasm for my blog so as not to tarnish your dignified front. I do appreciate the mention, though. By the way, I’m off of the Clark bandwagon. He is not The Man. I like Kucinich, but I don’t believe he has a chance either, sadly; not yet, anyway. I’m for anyone, absolutely anyone who really shows a solid shot at getting Bush and His Evil Flying Monkeys out of office. Unless they were in anyway involved in the creation of Terminator and Terminator-like movies. Then I’m for anarchy.

    Philip: Great find, thanks. We really do need a more rigorous method of finding and indexing new bloggers.

  4. Dave Pollard says:

    Katy: I’d love to hear your reasons for abandoning Clark, and your other views on politics, since you seem to be going along a similar track in thinking to mine. Maybe to avoid going ‘out of character’ you could set up a separate category for non husband-eating posts ;-)

    I might do that. I can only take this Husbands Soul Eating so far without an apostrophe or actual point. I do have a few things to learn about the blogging software itself before I branch out too far, though.Thanks again
