Unseen Rhythm

For some time I have been wishing that my posts from my earlier blogs could be included in my archives here. There were some specific posts that I felt should be included so that I could refer back to them as appropriate. I finally went and added those old posts on Monday from archives I saved before I pulled my blog. I had been forced to pull it because of excessive spam which brought the server to its knees (which is obviously unacceptable on a shared server). Thankfully WordPress is not as vulnerable to the spam attacks I suffered back then with b2Evolution (and I would not be surprised to learn that my new host – HostMonster – has better defenses than my old host).

Yesterday I found one final post that was not included in the other archives. This was the last post on my old site and it explained why I was pulling the blog. What I found very interesting is that the date on that final post was December 17, 2005 – exactly 2 years prior to the day I restored those old posts.

I wonder if there’s something about December 17th that I should be wary of. 😉

    I think WordPress is pretty much the only blogging platform with bundled anti-spam tools that both work and don’t inconvenience users. I get really cheesed off when I’m forced to register an account or jump through the useless CAPTCHA hoops.

    There are very few blogs that I will go through the step of filling out a CAPTCHA to comment (mostly family) although I must say that I am happy to see that blogger has integrated support for openID now which allows me to abandon my old blogger profile completely.
