I Have Choices!

So today marks the first time in roughly two months where I've actually not been doing the "working lunch".  On two days a week I have standing lunch meetings.  On the other days I have…well, interuptions!  :)  But today I'm actually relatively caught up.  Nobody is bothering me.  And the weather is decent —sunny and 50°.

So basically this provides me a choice.  To blog or go for a walk.  And the fact that you're reading this probably leads you to the conclusion that I've opted to blog.  That is true, but I have another option that I'm going to exercise.  Literally.  I'm going for a walk now.  :)

The Mob

The Mob

So you think you want to see some action Little boy, first things first We need to know your sources Your inner most fears We want to ask questions To see a true reaction…No tears needed here

If you pass our inspection We'll teach you our lesson The message it's so clear We're just a faction, if you're into action You've got to play by our rules

When the bullets are rising And there's no place for hiding You better be firing good There's no one to save you Not even the God that made you Face it, you're gonna die!

Blog Spamming

Progress on the RBL module for PolarBlog can't come soon enough…

Happily until a few months ago I saw very little blog spamming here.  In the past couple of months it began to pickup with the last couple of weeks being particularly brutal.  This culminated in getting hit with 160+ messages in one blast last week.  I found a couple of patterns in who was hitting me.  Most notably if the RBL was done it would be blocking nearly all of it.  In the meantime I've hacked a quick fix in that blocks some of the common keywords I've been seeing.  If you're a PolarBlog user and want and/or need the fix, you can email me and I'll send it to you.  I'm sorry if you are enduring the new found love that these assholes have for PolarBlog.  But the reality of the situation is that I'm basically a one man operation who's real job has run his life over.  Thus I've spent very little time working on any of my personal software projects.  I just wish these assholes would realize that although inconvenient, it only takes me a minute to delete their spam.  Generally it's only going to be on my site for a matter of minutes.
