I have more spam than emails…

Between 2:57pm on 13th October 2004 and 2:37pm on 13th June 2008 I had received 20,298 email conversations* in Gmail:

I have more spam than emails...

Between 1:00am on 14th May 2008 and 3:28pm on 13th June 2008 I had received 68,217 spam conversations* in Gmail:

That's about 1 spam every 38 seconds...

If I've done the maths correctly (I rounded to the number of days), then that's 1 email conversation* every 1 hour, 38 minutes, and 28 seconds and 1 spam conversation* every 38 seconds.

I'm sure there will be many people that get much more spam that I do, but it's still a lot of spam...

(Coincidentally, since I took the screenshot the spam has risen to 68,303)

UPDATE: Another quick calculation: taking the number of spam over the past 30 days, and extrapolating it over the past 4 years gives about 3 million spam...

UPDATE: The number of spam I get has increased somewhat this year, and I've just found documented evidence that I used to get less spam. I'd forgotten about that one...

* In case you didn't know, Gmail groups related emails into conversations. The numbers in the screenshots are the numbers of conversations; the actual number of emails will be much higher, but isn't nearly as easy to find...

Idiot, or Comedian? You decide.

Writing about web page http://www.amazon.com/review/R1PPJ35WY17216/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

A review on Amazon.com that is either stupid or a joke. I'll let you make up your own mind, although I think the fact that he still gave it 2 stars is good evidence for "Joke"...

I found it through another Flickr photo, and decided to do a version that was cropped tighter.

Idiot, or Comedian? You decide.
