spam.la beats mailinator!

Hey Joel (and other discuss-ors),

How's this for less is more?

I saw your mailinator post and thought they had a kind of cool site, but it was a bit confusing to me at first. I realized a much simpler way to do it: see http://www.spam.la/

C'est cool ne'st pas? (or some such french..)

I whipped it up all today!

(If the site's not up for you, wait a bit because dns may still be propogating).

comments?

ah... that's because for testing I bounced my spam folder over to it!

Ah!

This is what Joel meant by that whole X-drive, Y-drive, Z-drive -free drive phenomenon.

Oh yeah, I remember that article!

Yeah, it's hard to do anything on the Internet with little-to-no barrier to entry and not have somebody copy (or as I like to think of it, improve) it within a few weeks, or days.

But I guess that's okay as long as you're not in it for the money!

And who needs money? :)

This looks like another SpamCom boost a la DotCom. Within a few days, many more such sites might come up.
