Spam Measures

December 20th, 2010 No comments

Apologies to all those I’ve just affected, but due to the massive amounts of spam comments currently being submitted I’ve just beefed up our sign-up procedure as well as removing a tonne of users who seem to have submitted nothing (or nothing and spam).

If I accidentally deleted your account, or you’re legitimate and trying to sign up then I am really, truely sorry. Get in contact and we’ll sort it out :)

Linux Source Swearing

February 10th, 2009 No comments

x=Swear Words, y=kernel revision
It was my attempt to track down some of the more amusing kernel source code comments I’d heard, that led me to thinking I’d broken the advanced tagline plugin (tho it wasn’t).

It was also this quest, that led me across this most fantastic graph, showing Linux Kernel Revision against #of swear words contained.

Many thanks to Mr. Holden of for posting this (and amusingly he’s currently using the same theme we are :))

Advanced Taglines

February 10th, 2009 No comments

I’ve just had some minor problems with the Advanced Taglines Plug-in I use on the site.

Suffice to say, it turned out to be a minor mix of Interface Design Issues, but mostly my own stupid fault for not RTFMing or even checking the page source to see where I was going wrong.

I asked the author about it and he was back in touch with an answer within hours, and he was spot on the money about it being my fault. Excellent support and my greatest thanks to the author.

If you want to add some randomisation to your sites Tagline, then Advanced Tagline by Kevin Morey is well worth the install 😀

We have been migrating to a new server over the last couple of days, and although it was supposed to be seamless, I fucked up royally.
