In my mailbox today, I have many pieces of junk mail from the past few weeks, marked “Refused”, plus the following letter I wrote to the Charlton Postmaster.
March 26, 2007
In accordance with DMM 508, section 1.1.4, or any other applicable postal regulation, I hereby request that you not deliver to either of us any mail from any of the following addresses, for the maximum length of time that such an order can be good for. We do not want mail from any of these places, and did not ask for it. Thank you.

Those address were just the ones from my stack of mail I refused today that seemed to be most likely to try sending more mail in the future. It’ll be interesting to see how well it works.
I’m continuing to run weekly FNM events at Rising Phoenix Games.
March 30 through April 1, I’m going to be judging at Grand Prix Massachusetts in Fitchburg. They’re actually putting me up in a hotel room while I’m there.
April 21, I’ll be judging at the Connecticut Future Sight Prerelease.
May 5 & 6, I’ll be judging at the University of Hartford Dreamblade 10K event. Also that weekend I’m supposed to run a Future Sight release event at Rising Phoenix Games, so I’m not sure how that’s going to work right now.
A lot of big, fun, exciting events coming up.
Somehow, “lol” has become a punctuation mark on the Internet.
It’s currently fair weather in the upper 60’s, with a Winter Storm Watch in effect for tomorrow night.
Watching the weather here is so amusing.

A recent phone outage at work has got me thinking of this again, although I’ve thought of it before: Why isn’t there some email or web equivilent to 911? I’m much more likely to have network access and not phone access, than I am to have phone access and not network access.
This new daylight savings time switch this year is so much worse than Y2K. I’m pretty sure that my meetings at work for the next few weeks will be screwed up by an hour or so, as some people have a patch installed, some don’t, and Outlook doesn’t deal well with changing time zones.
In any event, as a PSA, if you’re running Microsoft Windows or Outlook and don’t know if you’re patched, check out http://www.microsoft.com/dst2007 for patches to run before the end of the week.
