Termination sequence initiated. Kill on sight.

Ah, the joys of self-hosting — you now go head-to-head with spambots directly. When it was just a few comments here and there, I didn’t mind since they were easy enough to just weed out as time allowed. I knew there were more of them milling about, but it didn’t seem worth the hassle to get anything big to handle them — kinda like baby roaches. But then last night one of them tried to change my password, so now measures have been taken. This is directed at you, evil little spambots. We’ve got an eye on you. Proceed at …

Accomplished.

Have finished directing all cloned placeholder journals (don’t tell me you guys didn’t go and reserve your name at every new blogging site back during the last few LJ scares) back to this one, and was even able to put up a nifty streaming widget on some of them to give a live feed of this place. I’m feelin’ all thorough today. In other news, have amused myself by uploading several different headers onto this main page and my WoW journal so that every time people load the page they will see a different graphic. This could very quickly get …

And the page-building continues.

Have been sorting through my old bookmarks and accessing sites that I haven’t peeked at in ages. At least this is making me clean out the cobwebs and get them all nice and updated, if only to point them all over here. I mean, really, who the heck has a Friendster anymore? Apparently, I do.

Anyways, I think tomorrow I’m gonna dive into the blog clone spaceholders I registered for a couple years ago and weed those out properly as well. …

Here and there.

1. Have finally set up The Velvet Kerfuffle and migrated assorted journals over to it. Will continue posting to both LJ and there, of course, but feel much better having my own privately hosted version because this is nearing a decade’s worth of entries. Whew. Still filling in the spaces, but I think the hard parts are done. 2. Have two interviews coming up this week, one of which is for a position at a women’s clothing design place. I’m really REALLY crossing my fingers for that one, since it sounds nearly ideal. It’s a smaller but very busy company …

Any WordPress wizards out there?

Have started the process of moving all my various blogs and sites over to a more consolidated form on my personal webspace. You know, the space and domains that I’ve been paying for over the past several years but have only been using as a glorified FTP server. Bad me. Anyways, finally decided to sit down and install WordPress instead of just staring at it accusingly like I have been for the past month. I plan to syndicate and keep my old LJs as long as they’ll be hosted, but just want to have it hosted on my servers. However, …
