This week I am crankin’ on pixel pushing and a bunch of back end connections in the cloud bleezy blaazy blow.

This goddamn site is getting hammered by the WordPress spam dingdongs who still think it’s viable to pollute the web with toxic waste.

I got the sound studio back online and it’s working great again. Pushing my power consumption on two circuits to the melting point. I have a fire extinguisher standing by if needed.

+ Blog Comments – Who needs them?

WordPress comment spam is epidemic right now:

So, I shut comments off on the site. I don’t get a lot of comments outside the Webmin how-to, so instead of trashing dozens of comments that get through Askimet each day, it’s easier to just respond to comments through other media channels like Twitter or whatever.

share dropcam

And then…

dropcam wall

 

Just show me the fuckin’ video already.

+ Oh, and thanks for pointing out that this blogola is totally NOT responsive. I agree, that sucks. Putting, “totally rebuild secretengineer.com from the ground up” in my Omnifocus.
