Gmail way of tracking who sent the e-mail

Cali Lewis sent me this information and I thought it was important to share.
Take a look at this blog entry: Google Operating System: Delete All Spam In Gmail. The most important feature is not how to delete the Spam, but instead how to add "+something" to your e-mail account when you give it out to someone else. This allows you to track who has sold your e-mail address to Spammers.
For instance, when you sign up to amazon use youremail+amazon@gmail.com. If Amazon sells this address you will know where it's coming from.
I'm now renaming all my accounts like that so I can see who's the company selling my info away.

Back home

The past 10 days were pretty good. Even though I checked e-mail and got close to a computer I managed to relax and get a sun tan.

Flying Jetblue was fun. The flight back was good, although it was quite bumpy. I could see the storms we were circling around. We were at 39000ft and the clouds were higher than we were!

Flying back home 2 days before going back to work was a good idea. I was able to run my errands, do laundry, meet with friends and get some rest from the timezone change. It was pretty nice.

Back to work tomorrow, and then flying to Seattle on Sunday evening. Things never stop!

Ashamed of being Brazilian

Our team played so badly today against France that I'm ashamed of being Brazilian. Congratulations to France. They won on merit, not on some referee call or something like that (like the Ita x Aus penalty).
Go Portugal with Scollari's team!
