What are the valid characters for an e-mail address

I have a list of the TLD's and ccTLD's

I know @ can't be the first chracter and . can not be the second character.

Yes you can have more than one @ in the e-mail. But are there any invalid characters or is the whole ASCII character set allowed?

by pyrex at 29 March, 2005 - 9:38 AM
Recently the genuine king and queen of Sweden visited Namibia where my mom and dad are at. Dad works at the embassy, where he's the "chancellor". I believe that's the correct title. Highest 'ranking', so pretty much the ambassador.

Anyway, my parents recieved the royal couple before they set out on their own to some hunting lodge to meet the prince of Bavaria.

File under "what will the Japanese think of next?"

http://www.gamegirladvance.com/archives/2002/10/26/sex_in_games_rezvibrator.html
Few ever played the game Rez in the US. It was just a weird psychadelic shooter. Nothing of merit. But what we didn't know was that we were getting a greatly scaled-down version of a lovely new innovation in Japanese video-gaming technology: the Trance Vibrator.

"Oh my GOD! This game rocks! Here, you play." I handed him the controller but you'd better believe I kept that vibrator right there in my lap.

New iTunes backdoor opened a day after Apple closed it...
by Septimus at 23 March, 2005 - 5:07 AM
"A group of underground programmers has posted code online they say will reopen a back door in Apple's iTunes store, allowing Linux computer users to purchase music free of copy protection. The release comes just a day after Apple blocked a previous version of the program, called PyMusique, in part by requiring all iTunes customers to use the latest version of Apple's software. In a blog posting, 'DVD Jon' Johansen said he had been successful at reverse engineering the latest iTunes encryption."

Firefox memory leak
by muhgcee at 17 March, 2005 - 8:45 PM
Your pristine browser Firefox isn't as good as you may have thought it was. It seems to have major memory leak issues. Leave the same instance of Firefox open for too long, and watch your memory usuage go up and not come back down. Even after closing all tabs, memory usage stays high. The solution? Close and restart. Not very elegant afterall. That is not to say I am going back to IE.

On a side note I would like to comment that I gave up my mac at work the other day. OS X just started pissing me off way to much to use it. Good ole linux saved the day!

As a question. How do you delete programs in OS X?....I found out that i couldnt get rid of safari because it controlls the internet options. And deleting it would be bad.

I downloaded 300MB of folk music, and it is a nice change so far. I like the titles, such as:
  • I Wish I Was a Mole in the Ground
  • Fishing Blues (literally about half of the song titles end with "Blues")
  • Drunkard's Special
  • King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Me
  • A Lazy Farmer Boy
  • My Name Is John Johanna
  • John Hardy Was A Desperate Little Man
  • Gonna Die With My Hammer In My Hand
  • Old Dog Blue
  • Indian War Whoop
I like this stuff, because they sound like real people and their real, unmessed with voices and instruments. But it is staticy as all hell.
