The Finger Brain Disconnect

A while ago I wrote about Mailinator. It’s a really good idea – a public service if you will. If you need a disposable, one time email address, just make one up! Then, when the spam starts rolling in, it’s not your problem.

I wrote about it and then wrote how it wasn’t working. Sure it wasn’t working… I was saying one thing and typing another. What an idiot!

Hi Geoff —

I noticed on May 3 you wrote mailinator wasnt working … but your

posted email trace shows you tried to send mail to, not

I have no idea what spaminator is, but it has nothing to do with

mailinator. And mailinator has been happily running all year.
