Yeah, fuck you spam.

Literally hundreds of thousands of spam comments just got cleared out by yours truly. One blog had 270,000+ comments before I started.

I had to go thru several peoples' blogs and turn off the comment sections (at first I closed them, but turning them off hid the spam until it was deleted) on all their old posts. I'm not finished turning off the comments on one blog's entries (though I've gotten about a third of the way thru), but I've killed ALL the spam, so anything that gets added now can be removed easily enough.

I'm very well aware that nobody is reading this, I still felt like sharing. Maybe I should go ahead and kill off the whole subdomain.

I haven't updated in two years?!


Now I'm thinking of doing something drastic. Seriously.

I'm considering replacing the main page with just a splash page, with the Lair content in its own subdomain, moving my blog over there (which means I might actually use it more often), and making my personal site a bit more "real" (as in, more than just a bunch of filler).

I'm also toying with the idea of pumping all the Lair content thru a CMS (looking at you, Wordpress) and maybe, maybe, getting it up and running again. I could use Wordpress for my blog as well, and that would allow people to log in and post their stuff themselves, rather than making me do everything (which, truth be told, is where the stumbling block was).

Overhauling everything would let me do all that wonderful "web 2.0" stuff that these crazy kids are talking about. I'm even using The Twitter; that's hip, right?

(in truth, if I could post stuff from my iPhone easily, I'd probably be a much chattier web person than I currently am; that's the primary reason I use Twitter as much as I do)

Holy crap

Those that know me well are quite familiar with the fact that I don't drink.

Smirnoff's Twisted V Raspberry is pretty tasty. I just split one with my friend Courtney who came over to watch Scrubs for a few hours. Not bad at all.

In other news, Hell has frozen over.

Oh dear, I must *really* want an iPhone...

I've already downloaded 22 free apps from the App Store.

I won't be getting an iPhone until August at the earliest, as that's when my contract with Verizon expires.

But still, these are some pretty nifty programs (and all of the ones I'm downloaded in advance are free.

Stuff and... stuff

Huh, I wonder if anyone still reads this?

Well, this all went to hell in a handbasket...

"Oh yeah, my blog"...

Shitloads of spam. I looked at a few old entries, and there was spam in the body of the page. The fuck?

Just cleared all the spam out (including several thousand comments), but it looks like the server is choking on stuff. Arg.

I need to destroy the whole system and put something else in place. MovableType has not aged well, and I can't just upgrade to the latest version because of how many users I have. I might just scrap the whole damn idea and move it over to
