First Spam Through the Filters

Posted in Blog Status, Content-lite, Milestones at 1:21 pm by Daran

Ironically one of them was for male-on-male rape porn. Also the first bulk spam – 26 in one go. Previously I was getting 1-2 per day. It’s downhill all the way from here. 😦

BTW, I anyone sees any spam in an otherwise inactive thread, please bump it to make sure that we see it. I want to keep this place as spam-free as possible.

Nearest Book

Posted in Content-lite, Mathematics, Personal Ramblings at 6:44 am by Daran

This is entertaining.

The idea is that someone tags you. You then reach for the nearest book to you, turn to page 123, then write down the 5th, 6th, and 7th sentences from that page. (The instructions don’t say whether the last part of the sentence that wrapped from the previous page counts as the first sentence, but I assume it does not.) You then tag three other people.

Unfortunately nobody loveshas tagged me, so I have to masturbate on my ownplay withby myself:

First Blogrolling…

Posted in Blogosphere, Blogroll, Content-lite, Milestones at 11:04 am by Daran

…not counting Creative Destruction, which I did myself.

Thanks TS, I’ve alreadly got you ‘rolled.

But my links are way cooler than yours, because I’ve got these nice pop-ups when you hover over them.

First Blog-related Nightmare

Posted in Content-lite, Milestones, Personal Ramblings at 1:22 am by Daran

As I was lying in bed, hovering on the edge of consciousness, I had this feeling that a vicious flame-war had erupted in the comments, and I wasn’t there to moderate it.

First Intercepted Spam

Posted in Content-lite, Milestones at 3:34 pm by Daran

Hot on the heels of my first search engine hit, my first Akismet-intercepted spam message, telling me that “google.com” is the best search engine. I’ve noticed a lot of spam recently purportedly for “google.com” over at Creative Destruction.

I don’t think Google is really spamming. I can think of two explanations for it.

1. The spammer is testing software, spamming strategies or blog defences.

2. The spammed URL isn’t “google.com” at all, but one or more of the letters has been replaced by a visually identical character.

I am now the featured blog for the wordpress tag “Flame Wars“.

Open for Business

Posted in Blog Status, Content-lite, Milestones at 12:25 pm by Daran

This blog came into being when I joined CD, because at that time, WordPress automatically created a personal blog for you when you opened an account. At that time, I had a feeling that I wanted to do something with it, but I didn’t know what. I do now.

So with a new look and a new sense of purpose that I declare Daran’s Blog open for business.
