SpamAssassin being skipped?

Dear Lazyweb,

About once a day or so, a spam message lands in my Inbox because SpamAssassin never saw it. There are no X-Spam-* headers in it at all (normally those are present even for non-spam). The message was received from my ISP by the usual route. /var/log/maillog generally shows spamd activity immediately after each sendmail connection, but not in this case: sendmail is logged but not spamd. Messages received just a minute or two before and after show spamd being run as usual.

How is this even possible?

Update: Apparently SpamAssassin assumes that any message bigger than 250K is not spam. Wow, that's a good idea... It's possible that the fix is to add "-x -s 100000000" to the call to spamc in /etc/procmailrc.

DNA Lounge: Wherein photographic evidence is entered into the record.

Photos are now up of the Birthday Massacre + The Start + Schoolyard Heroes show. It was another really good show! I enjoyed all three bands a lot. They were all really energetic, too. Schoolyard Heroes are a punk/metal kind of thing; The Start are punk-ish rock; and to we elderly folk, The Birthday Massacre are a goth band, but I suspect the kids today would call them nu-metal or something.

The video for Blue is pretty cool.
