    Fight Geeklog comment spam Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    GeekLogI've got an ugly-but-it-works approach to fighting spam.

    Update: this works. Perfectly. I haven't had a single piece of comment spam since implementing it. Of course, if spammers decide to start creating comment spam with less than three URLs, I'm hosed, but until then, I'm fine. Almost by definition, they won't. Having three links instead of twenty seems to be not worth it.

    MiscellaneousI heard about this a loooong time ago and finally got around to reading it. The first chapter is thoroughly entertaining and I expect the rest are just as good. It's a story about a Mac technician in New York who helps the police solve a murder. I'm not sure how long it will be or when it will be finished but it is free and available here.

    Colorful Terminal Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version  
    Monday, June 13 2005 @ 09:47 PM EDT
    Contributed by: Admin

    Terminal/CLII spend a lot of time SSHing to various boxes. This handy little script will set the Terminal to a certain color when I start a session and set it back to white when I'm done. There's nothing worse than being on one box and thinking you're on another. Also, this makes the minimized icons colorful.
