Compared the numbers with those of half a year ago (4-May-2009) the numbers tell a story: the total amount of messages has dropped by 2000 – almost half; the percentages are fairly equal – except for the percentage of DNS-blacklisted messages that is significant lower. But since the number of accepted messages is more or less the same as before, the percentage has doubled.

I’m not sure what caused this trend, there can be many reasons: blockage of spamming domains and open relayes, less infected systems connected (some Dutch ISV’s do).

I started the development of this program. It will be a daemon that can handle multiple blogs concurrently, so that means a one-time reading of the configuration and keep it in memory, and it gives me the ability to cache files (index pages come to mind, rebuilding the indexes is only needed when a page is added or removed).

But since I’m not yet familiar with C, it will take some time…
