i just wanted to post something on 6/6/6.
So i’ve been getting tons of comment spam. I’ve been using wordpress’s spam word list so most of it hasn’t made it to the front page but it’s still a pain having to go through and delete them.
Since i don’t have a job right now i’ve been playing around with ways to try to stop them and i think i may have got something working. Orignially I added a line in my comments page to check to see if any of the common spam words are contained in any of the comment fields and if so to just die and not submit. That seemed to work but i was still getting alot of hits from these bots or whatever they are so i decided to try a little something else. Now instead of merely not submitting i have the page redirected to start a download of a 20 meg file. I don’t know enough about how the spam bots work to know if it actually causes them any problems but hopefully it does.
it’s really simple code but if anyone wants to see it let me know.

i think i’m actually going to start making updates to this page again.
this page has some links to video of some awesome robot fighting from japan. it’s not the battle bot style though. think of robot kung fu
here are some awesome photos. looks like they were all taken from the air.
ashley, harold, mark and i took a little trip to santa rosa, nm awhile back to pick up dom. i’m a little slow with getting this up…
that’s what scientist Bradley C. Edwards says. and for only $10 billion too.
i don’t know about 15 years but it sounds like a cool idea.
Ben & Jerry’s sponsored the development of the first freezer powered by sound waves (as opposed to freon or some gas)
possibly one of the coolest sites ever. nationmaster is just a site with tons of statistics on different countries. it might sound kind of stupid but it’s super interesting.
i’ll be interested to see how this develops. i can’t help but wonder if iran is trying to pick a fight or something?
space ship one returned to earth, still waiting on official confirmation i guess
