THE FEDERAL Can-Spam law took effect New Year's Day, but the people who send me junk mail aren't paying attention. When I opened my inbox at work Monday after the holiday, I found the usual 50 or 60 pitches for prescription painkillers, sexual aids, mortgage refinancing deals and porn sites, along with four variations on the venerable Nigerian bank scam. As usual, I spent a few minutes deleting the junk and saving the Nigerian scam offers, which I collect because I love the wondrous liberties they take with the English language.

An e-mail address of a former state Democratic Party worker was used in a discussion about Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley's marriage on a conservative Web site, a spokesman for the site said yesterday. Kristinn Taylor, a spokesman for free republic.com, said Ryan O'Doherty's Democratic Party address was one of at least three used to operate the identity of MD4BUSH, the mysterious Internet poster who appears to have coaxed an aide to Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. into talking about the mayor's personal life.

Many people find the holiday season a time to share their blessings with those less fortunate. To help that effort, beginning Nov. 22 the Laurel Leader will publish a list of local nonprofits and each group's "wish list" of items needed to serve our community throughout the holidays and beyond. Nonprofit or advocacy groups can be included in the listing by e-mailing the organization's name, address, web and/or e-mail address, telephone number and a brief list of needed items to Pat Farmer, paf1@patuxent.com ; or call 410-332-6653.

So many of today's communication electronic devices are acquiring the ability to connect to the Internet. The telephone does; it's called Voice Over Internet Protocol or VoIP. Several digital camera models can go online. Television devices such as the SlingBox let you see what's being displayed on your TV from anywhere you can get Internet access. So it was inevitable that we'd eventually see a fax machine go online, too. The UX-B800SE BroadbandFax from Sharp Corp. is a normal progression of that technology.

Those irritating problems of the computer world - spam, viruses and spyware - continue to grow exponentially, according to a survey by Consumer Reports. Despite the first federal law regulating junk e-mail going into effect last January, spam still outnumbered legitimate messages, according to the survey of 2,000 e-mail users. And most of us are aware of viruses, which can come from e-mail and from downloading software. But spyware, which marketing companies use to "spy" on your Internet usage and send pop-up screens to lure you away from your regular sites, is also becoming more of a problem, according to Consumer Reports.

Ilive way out in the country and it's beautiful, but I am literally the last phone on the local line. My download speeds are very slow. And obviously there is no cable or satellite access. What can I do other than move back to the city? Are there different speeds from the Internet service providers, or am I stuck napping while waiting on a download? - E. DeVane You're not out of satellite range. While I am not a great fan of Internet by satellite, it's sure better than your painfully slow dial-up speed.

We frequently complain about big government but sometimes they can be very helpful. The following represents a case where the Maryland state government was very helpful to me. During the month of March 2012, I had a nationally known company perform repair work on my home. Unfortunately the work was performed in an unsatisfactory way and after months of dealing with the company we could not reach a resolution. I felt the company was not negotiating in good faith, so I contacted the Maryland Home Improvement Commission for assistance.

If you're over the age of 30 or just have big fingers, you may have decided that "texting" isn't for you. By texting, I mean composing a message using a cell phone keypad or one of those Lilliputian QWERTY keyboards attached to a BlackBerry or some other hand-held device. Adults should never be seen texting in public - it's rude and reeks of adolescence. And in some circumstances - when you're driving, crossing the street or having a conversation with your spouse - texting can be downright dangerous.

I have created in my e-mail account (on Yahoo) a group list for the purpose of sending out summary information at various times. I would prefer that each recipient not receive the names and e-mail addresses of the entire group to which the message is sent. How do I do this? - Maggie Bath, yahoo.com This problem of privacy among pals pops up quickly as ever more families, churches, book clubs, political campaigns and other so-called affinity groups discover the power of broadcasting form messages to every member using e-mail.

Walk through a library's Internet area and peek at what people are doing on those computer screens. Chances are pretty good you'll see Yahoo Mail on many of them. Some others will be at HotMail. Sure, there also will be a few eBayers, Amazoners, Chatters and general surfers, but the free Yahoo Mail and HotMail sites occupy a big chunk of Internet attention. It makes sense. E-mail is the single most-popular use of the Internet. And Yahoo Mail and HotMail are the best-known and most popular free e-mail sites.
