If things are a tad wonky for the next few days, it’s because my webhost just migrated a bunch of us to a new server and it’s causing some of the older SQL-driven goodies to shit all over themselves in celebration.
Yippee.

Update.

RE: The gay kid stuck in the Jesustani Penal Colony.
Wonder of wonders, it looks like a rescue effort is - in fact - underway.
For the past four days, groups of protestors have gathered outside of the Refuge prison compound to show support for this poor kid. And they’ll be out there every day for [...]

ARGH.

First, the COMMENT spam. NOW, the TRACKBACK spam. I’m turning off trackbacks entirely until I find a decent fix.
Anyone else running WP should be on the lookout for this as well.
Some day, I will be a wealthy madman and I will channel my entire fortune into raising a private army whose [...]

Okay… the blacklists aren’t working, so I’ve installed an authimage plugin to try and stop the comment spam. HOPEFULLY, this is the last thing I’ll need to try.

Another day, another blogtool…

May 27th, 2004 · No Comments · General

Switched from Blogger to WordPress. I actually dug out the old posts from the various other blogs I’ve been littering the digital countryside with for the past couple of years.

Short version of a long story…

February 3rd, 2004 · No Comments · General

A few weeks ago my old host went tits-up. I’d been using b2 for a while on my old site and neglected to properly backup the archive database in the process of (ostensibly) rescuing my data from the then-close-to-death-but-not-quite-dead server. As such, a year or so worth of random nonsense was lost.
I could [...]
