Blogging

I may give up my blog. No damn time.

I've been meaning to dump movable type for months. I don't like the new licensing and I don't like comment spamming troubles. I looked around a bit, but realized that I simply don't have the time. I've had the site up for a year and a half and never had time to really get the templates the way I wanted. Now, to start over...

Instead, I'll just stick to diaries here.

It's too bad, because I liked the control I had having my own site.

Work is interesting, busy and stressful all at once. It means less freetime, less Internet-at-work time. I do hope I can make a PFC entry. I've got an idea that should be fairly simple. How well it will work in practice I have no idea.
My wife had the day from hell on Friday. Her tire went flat, the tire on the jogging stroller went flat, the starter on her car died (after she'd filled up the tire) and the garbage disposal died all in the space of a few hours.

They can't take the car until tomorrow. REI fixed the jogging stroller tire and I did the manly-man thing a few hours ago and replaced the garbage disposal.

I wish I could describe my project at work. It's amusing in a pathetic "working for a big company with lousy internal communications" kind of way.

Blogs Are SO Five Minutes Ago! by CheeseburgerBrown (3.00 / 0) #1 Sun Jun 27, 2004 at 10:37:48 AM EST
Now that everyone's abuzz that Bill Gates is going to start blogging, it really is time to stop.

The geekbuzz of 2005? "Oh, you're still blogging?" Mark my ASCII.

My limp excuse for a weblog is nothing but a lump of hyperlinked-up meat I leave hanging in the wind for the PageRank flies to eat. I long ago moved the main features out of the Blogosphere and into the Scooposphere -- more meaningful feedback, less template-niggling hassles, better Googleshare.

(Please note: no, I don't actually determine whether or not to blog based on my perception of trendiness. In the event that I do become that flaky, please shoot me in the temple.)

The hip thing now is to be part of a blogmunity, like, erm, some site that's a splinter site from other site that used to be popular but kinda got trolled to death.

how much more control do you need?

[t]rolling retards conversation, period.

I posted a comment on the pfc diary as well just now, but in case nobody reads it:

if you intend this to be useful for spam filtering, don't bother. Deobfuscating words lowers spam filtering accuracy. If you just want to write a fun translator with no spam application, go for it.

Accuracy is lowered because the misspellings are often correlated with the actual spam sending software (better), while words in the clear would be correlated with the spam corpus as a whole (worse).

I considered blogging, but it never seemed worth it. Instead, I would hang out on online communities like everything2, h2g2, and k5. I like HuSi because it's just like a blog only the people are so much cooler.

Simple solution to MT3's license by fluffy (3.00 / 0) #7 Mon Jun 28, 2004 at 06:13:10 PM EST
If you don't like MT3's license, just don't upgrade.
