I hate web spam…

I really hate web spam. Since I used to run [Movable Type](http://www.sixapart.com/movabletype) here, lots of spammers used to hit up /mt/mt-tb.cgi and /mt/mt-comments.cgi to try to auto-spam my blog. I’ve been running [Wordpress](http://www.wordpress.org/) for (checks archives) nearly 3 months now, and I’m still seeing it. Today, I was checking out my [Mint](http://www.haveamint.com/) statistics, and I […]

Tagging for WordPress

So, as I mentioned, I’ve been working on upgrading the blog to WordPress this past week. Everything went off without a hitch, or so I thought.

With a little searching on the web, I found this page […]

Oh, and Jeff pointed this out today online. Pretty damned sweet — a genetic sequence browser for various species' […]

MT Upgrade Woes

Well, after another MT upgrade this last week, I broke the install again with the Storable module's breaking with regard to 56-bit vs. 64-bit storage (I think — I plan to research this more later today..). Every time I upgrade, I forget to patch lib/MT/PluginData.pm, so I figured I'd document the required steps here, as […]

MTOtherBlog Failure

Well, since upgrading to MT 3.0D, MTOtherBlog has failed, as some of you may have noticed by my Static Categories list vanishing off the right. Guess I need to drop a note to the MTOtherBlog author; hopefully s/he's not one of the people bailing on MT since the 3.0 licensing brouhaha. UPDATE: Yep, it's official, […]
