Site Updated

Ever hear the phrase “Tragedy of the Commons?“. That’s pretty much what spam is doing to the free/open portions of the internet these days. For example, this site has been hit with a spate of spam–something on the order of 50 to 100 spam comments a day for the past couple of weeks–and it’s been pretty crippling dealing with that. So, I have tried upgrading to the latest version of this blog software (scary!), and using a new anti-spam plug-in. If you do find that something is broken or missing, please do post a comment and let me know! Hopefully with this new anti-spam plugin, comment posting can go back to a less strictly moderated form, and I’ll be spending less time combing through spam messages.

A new name that ware is just around the corner…a combination of the July 4th holiday weekend and a very busy week after that catching up on work has delayed the contest a bit, but never fear! I have wares to post and winners to declare, and it should be up within the next two days. You may notice some mild stylistic changes to my posts as well, as this new blog software seems to have a mind of its own when it comes to formatting things.
