Random Posts

I’ve added a random post link to the bar at the top of the page. Yawn. Other than that I’ve been too lazy to do anything else.

Tag Cloud Page

The tag cloud was getting bloated, so I’ve cut the count back to the default (45) and have set up a separate Tag Cloud page that displays all the tags.

Meme: First sentence of first post of each month of 2008

I shamelessly stole this meme from ScienceBlogs. Jan: As my friends know, I’m not a particularly social person. [Breadcrumbs] Feb: At times like this, I understand why the zen masters tended to simply hit their students upside the head with a stick when they said something stupid. [Zen Masters] Mar: My first impression when I […]

Upgrade to WordPress 2.6.3

I’ve just upgraded to WordPress 2.6.3. It was relatively simple — just scp the files class-snoopy.php and version.php into the wp-includes directory. The upgrade to 2.7 is due November 10th, but I’ll postpone upgrading until we hear back from the trenches. Previous upgrade: 2.6.2.

Rebooted

The hornlo.org server was rebooted about 18:45 PDT (20:45 CDT), after I reported it unreachable; I’m not sure how long it was out of service. Appears to be ok now.

I’ve been really busy lately, but a long weekend is coming up — hopefully I’ll be able to make a few posts then.

Comment Spam

Usually spam comes from random IP addresses, but lately I’ve gotten a lot from 200.63.42.136 (supposedly somewhere in Panama or Mexico). The Akismet plugin does an excellent job of catching comment spam, but I’ve grown tired of seeing this particular address over and over again in the spam queue, so I’ve blocked that IP. If […]

Planned outage July 11

Just in case things don’t go as planned … A heads up from my hosting provider (which I had intended to post earlier than this): “On July 11, 2008 starting at 10pm [Pacific Time] we will have a brief network outage to restructure our routing tables. We are planning two hours to deal with any […]

State of the Blog 0.5

My About page currently states “I plan on actually producing content in 2008, lol”. You may wonder why I bother. Steve Yegge’s You Should Write Blogs (even if nobody reads them) probably contributed to pushing me over the edge, so for convenience, you can blame him. I’m calling this a half-year review despite the fact […]
