Project honeypot

I have installed some code from Project Honeypot to the website, not that much is necessarily happening but the amount of cleverer or manual comment spam is starting to get on my nerves, so I am hoping that a couple of changes will help keep the site cleaner.

Using Bad Behaviour and Comments Cleaner I hope will stop nearly all comment spam since either it cannot get there, or once it has, the links are removed anyways. So all the stupid ‘I love your site’ or ‘please explain how to add me to your RSS feed’ type of stuff will go away..

If you are really human and want to add a link – please just add the site name (mysitename.com/gohere) as plain text and I will then change the link manually. Sorry for the hassle but given a ratio of spam of something like 1000/1 real comments it is better to proceed like this.

PS for those of you in ZH – you will need to use a proxy to find the code to install the honeypot code – it is blocked. Maikefailapolis? 😕

Incredible – maybe I don’t need to kill myself and others with Gallery now

Now that version 2.5 of WP is out, it seems that we can integrate pictures into the pages. Finally!! This may prove to be the breakthrough needed 🙂

Mediatemple is still there :-)

This site is getting very slow. This is nothing to do with the provider, but all to do with me. So far MT has proven pretty good for my current modest usage of it, in particular it allows much better customisation of the PHP/Apache interface, so you can actually use a php.ini or .htaccess file with most of the options. SSH access is great and works very well, only pity is I could not find a way to bulk FTP my old site across using the default MT tools.

New service provider

Looks like the transition to Mediatemple is going ok 🙂 If you see this page it is because the DNSes have updated.

More later as we proceed to install new things…
