Damn… last friday I updated my ~/.procmailrc file on slackware.com to get rid of some persistent spam, and forgot to actually check the validity of that change.
I wish I had checked the logs… on sunday I started wondering why the mail had stopped arriving for alien at slackware dot com, on monday I asked Pat to check the fetchmail schedules and the sendmail queues (nothing stuck there) and emails I sent from outside as a test never arrived. It took until this evening to realize that I had stopped receiving emails after I made an edit in my mail configuration.
Damn again. Anyone who sent me an email between last friday Oct 30 and today Nov 3 21:00 UTC, please re-send it. Last one that I read and answered was one from McQuen.
Apologies if I sent your email to the blackhole called /dev/null …
