On spam and flattery

“You must get tired of people telling you what a great blog you have. Hope you don’t mind one more!” it says, while using the username “Free Ringtone Downloads” and linking to some dodgy site…

One wonders how the spammers are getting here — I had one spam comment in the last couple of years on my old blog, then within 24 hours of switching to wordpress the spammers discovered it and set off their bots, and I had 3 comments in the “pending approval” queue by the time I woke up…

A Reorganisation

A load of code that nobody ever used was removed from the sidebar, combined with more dead projects from my hard disk, and imported into The Graveyard~

Version 3.0: WordPress

I tired of my custom blog thing; and so, switched to wordpress~

It works nicely ._.

All the comments are gone though…

10k hits/day O_O

Looks like TravMap is very popular, pushing the site over the 10,000 hits per day mark :o

It’s had such an effect that it can be seen on the total-hits graph (it was released about new year):

Edit: comments off, since this post seems to attract more spam comments than all the others put together o_O

Reboot ;_;

After 4 months uptime, the server goes down for it’s first ever (?) voluntary reboot, with an extra stick of ram~
