I was listing to Rush Limbaugh’s today, yesterdays show via pod-cast. He was reading a post from some conservative blogger. The bloggers comment said that blogs were/are a major influence in the American political scene. Rush did not say this, but this is something I believe and I wish Rush had said it. What is[…]
Due to spam, newer posts on my web site, will only allow comments for 1 week instead of the prior 90 days. This is an attempt to control the large amount of spam I get on this blog.
I have posted a few mp3’s I have recorded of my playing my tin whistle, and chances are high that I probably will be posting more mp3 of myself playing. The question now is should I just keep putting links to the new mp3’s on my blog or should I put up some more php[…]
Some of my friends have made a comment about the lack of posts here as of late, for this I am sorry I just have been busy as of late. I will try to post more often but life does have a way of getting in the way at times.
I am sorry about the lack of posts. I have not really been on the computer at home much in the last week. I will admit I also was behind of posting the mp3’s for my churches podcast site. I have finally got around to the computer, and done some blog stuff, and got the[…]
Due to the massive increase in spam comments I have put all comments on moderation for now. I will not tolerate spam comments.
Well over the last few months I have been a little laxed on the spam problem, I had not been banning IP address, but today showed me that I have to go back to that polocy, I had 147 spamm comments on my blog today, so I will be banning all IP address that have[…]

Sorry I have not been updating as much as I had in the past. There is a reason for this. As I have started a new job, that is further from where I live, and I am trying to pick up a instrument, I have really cut my free time down. I will update as[…]
The other day I got the following email: I wrote you a nice comment on your printer post but your jerky software told me it was spam and deleted my text. How do you expect to get any useful comments?! The person had in the subject: your jerky anti-spam thing on your blog Well to[…]
I have been busy as of late, so I have not had any really good posts to put up as of late. But in the next few days I will be putting up a major post.
I was hoping that the anti-spam things I had put in place would have alowed me to stop blocking IP address, but I was getting more then 100 spam comments a day so I had to reblock all the address I had blocked before, I am sure glad I had backed up my .htaccess file.
I have had some good experience with the 2 new additions to my spam blocking. So I am going to put the full test to it, I have renamed my .htaccess file, and have turned off the IP blocking. I am going to see if the new anti-spam things I put in place will work.[…]
