The Spaminator is here to kick some you-know-what

As most of the regulars know, I've had some spam problems in recent months that was interfering with the comments sections. After a temporary move to WordPress (which proved disastrous on several levels) I'm back with Movable Type, but now have some anti-spam action in place to get rid of those 300+ ads a day for texas hold'em and viagra.

The comments are permanently open. Sorry, though, to a few folks whose comments I accidentally deleted on the last post. That was an error on my part. I'm just an error-prone person.

Viva la Movable Type!


Test test... please don't filter me out, Spaminator!

Ah, I am so very sorry to hear that your attempt with WordPress didn't work out, Drina. But I'm glad to hear that comments are back. Hope it works out better this time. :D

Court, I didn't dislike WordPress so much... there were actually some things about it I thought were pretty cool. But I didn't like having to edit separate templates for the main page. And I did some serious damage to a blog hosted here by installing it, so I decided it had to go.

Looks like the spaminator is working, though!

Well, whatever works for you. :)

Glad to see I can comment again without that dreaded TypeKey. :)

And now for something completely different:


Oh, dear, I hope the Spaminator doesn't put me in the comfy chair and poke me with the soft cushions!

Drina-diva, I forgive you. Mistakes happen.

I recently joined a site called . I used to avoid reminiscing about my educational years. The obscure single by Animotion called "I Engineer" had a couplet that more or less expressed my attitude:

"I'll leave it all behind in a cloud of dust
There's an even chance I'll shine or rust"

I've had a change of heart lately; perhaps it's from turning 42 in May.

Thanks for forgiving me... after all the mistakes I've made lately would surely have gotten me a good flaming (or perhaps would have unleashed the bird), but such has not been the case. You guys rock!
