Long Term Stasis

As is obvious to the crickets that follow this site I have not posted anything here in quite a long time; a few years in fact. I’ve been posting on Flickr, Facebook and a bit on Instagram. I also have a new website where I post info. on my adventures in amateur radio (ham radio). It is doubtful that I’ll be adding any new content here.

There has been a recent uptick in the number of user registration attempts performed by bots. The goal for these is to post spam comments with links to all sorts of nefarious content/sites. I’ve disabled the ability to register for the site and limited content posting to existing registered users. I’ll leave the site up for the few projects detailed here, like the grandfather clock interior lighting build, that still get a few hits a month.

So long, and thanks for the fish.


Blame the spam bots…

So I’ve had to implement a ‘captcha’ system on the site. Since I ‘fixed’ things up a few weeks back there has been a deluge of spam comments & registrations. I frankly don’t have the time to review this trash so I’ve added some ‘resistance’ to the process to impede the bots. Hopefully, you, the real folks, will not be impacted.

37,834 spam comments…

So I guess it’s been a minute since I’ve reviewed the pending comments. Rather than spend the next few days sorting these for the 2 actual comments I’m going to mark them all as spam and move on with my life.

Apologizes to the two actual humans that posted comments – it’s nothing personal; I’m sure I’d like you.

Except for you, Karen; no one likes you.
