Comm Vitt Me Iff You Vant To Liff...

I'm sure that there are lots of services like this out there... but I like this one. It's dead stupid easy, and it's useful.

MAILINATOR.COM

It's like the Terminator for e-mails.

Do you want to use a website, but they insist on you providing an e-mail address? Do you not *want* to provide your e-mail address because you don't want to get any additional spam e-mails about "LON6 LASTIN6 ERECT10NS" or "KIND PERSON NEEDED TO TRANSFER LARGE AMOUNT OF INTERNATIONAL FUNDS", or even "INEED2GETLAID"??

Problem solved. Give them a mailinator.com e-mail address. Make up the first part, whether it's robin@mailinator.com, or dropdead@mailinator.com or 123@mailinator.com. The message will arrive at mailinator, and even live there for a few hours before it's deleted. If you want to check the message, just go to Mailinator.com and tell them the mail name you made up (robin, or dropdead, or 123) and it shows you what messages were sent to that address.

Neat, eh? I'm going trolling for websites just so I can use it.

Hasta la vista, baby.

Cool.

I thought that was what Hotmail was for, though...
