Thanks to Apple and the power of Linux, you can now play the classic first-person shooter, Doom, on your iPod. Check out the screen shots. This is sick.

b2evolution users, rid yourself of comment spam in one shot!

Friday, March 17th, 2006

I declare victory over comment spam!! I’ve decided to resurrect my blog, and, of course, the first thing I wanted to do is remove all of the comment spam I’ve collected over the months the blog has been inactive. So, after studying almost two hundred comment spam records, I was able to wipe out over 3,000 bogus comments all at once, without deleting a single welcomed comment.

If any evo users want to try their luck with my query, here it is. To use it, simply copy and past the SQL code into phpMyAdmin or any other SQL front end. You could also execute it from the command prompt, if you have shell access to your hosting server. I’m not saying this will get rid of more than half of anyone else’s spam, but I’d be willing it would wipe out a ton of it… enjoy.

Anyhow, I plan on posting to my blog more often now and I hope to regain some of my old regulars.
