microsoft patented crap

We have identified that messages from your IP (127.0.0.1) are being filtered based on the recommendations of the SmartScreen filter.  SmartScreen is the spam filtering technology developed and operated by Microsoft.  SmartScreen is built around the technology of machine learning.  SmartScreen’s filters are trained to recognize what is spam and what isn’t spam.  In short, we filter incoming emails that look like spam.  I am not able to go into any specific details about what these filters specifically entail, as this would render them useless.

[Yah right security by obscurity ]

However, we also base our spam rating on the reputation of the sender.  One way to positively impact the r! eputation of your IP is to obtain SPF/Sender ID records.  This technology allows SmartScreen to better track emails from your IP, weeding out spoofed messages.  You can find additional information on creating SPF records at http://www.microsoft.com/senderid

failed to open DRM: Operation not permitted (on fglrx and ubuntu feisty)

[After installing fglrx with apt-get install apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx and replacing nvidia with fglrx in driver section i still had no 3d enabled and my user wasn't allowed to access /dev/dri . So i did an little search on google and got this ]
Then you are trying to run as a user that doesn't have permission to use the DRI (root is the default allowed user). To let all users access the DRI, add the following section to your xorg.conf:
Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
EndSection
