Well, it’s finally happened. My ailing blog engine has finally died. It was killed by spammers in the end. Considering how long I’d been limping along on that old version of WordPress, I’m not surprised. The database seems to be just CRAMMED with unmoderated spam comments, and Barrett (the server admin) said there was over a GB of bounced spam email in there, too. Crap.
Anyway, it looks like I’ll not only need to upgrade or scrap my blog engine, but I’m seriously considering a move to a new server space so I can get my blog problems out of my old friends’ hair. Dreamhost is looking kinda sweet these days.
In the meantime, you can keep track of what’s going on with me on my Livejournal. I’ll keep you posted.
