Rob has a great cartoon posted in honor of the new year.

Sorry, Rob. My bandwidth has taken a beating lately. YOU get stuck with the tab on this one!

Back on line

Filed under: General Rants — Bunker @ 6:37 am

The last few days have been a challenge. But the site now functions once again. My database was corrupted in some way, and it has to do with some spam, and the fact that my hosting service decided to implement MySQL at the same time. They also upgraded Perl.

I managed to recover all but the last week’s posts, and kept my current posts on the index page without rebuilding so I could try and keep them, also. Unfortunately, the comments for those went away. I decided to only repost a couple of them.

I will move to WordPress and a new hosting service this week. Kate runs Venom Pages, and I’ve already got my spot reserved on her server. And Bogey has given me some sound advice on a new look for Bunker Mulligan to go along with the move. I’ll be working on that. I offered to pay for his expertise with a round of golf and a buffet brunch with the wives at the club. It may not be enough.

Comment Spam

Filed under: General Rants — Bunker @ 6:55 am

Yes, they managed to get past Blacklist, and for the time being my comments don’t work. The folks who did this are:

OrgName: Impact Advertising
Address: IPWorld Networks, 104-1708 Dolphin Avenue
City: Kelowna
StateProv: BC
PostalCode: V1Y9S6
Country: CA

NetRange: –
NetHandle: NET-192-197-212-0-1
Parent: NET-192-0-0-0-0
NetType: Direct Assignment
RegDate: 1992-07-19
Updated: 2001-04-30

TechHandle: ZI56-ARIN
TechName: IPWorld Networks
TechPhone: +1-250-717-2340
TechEmail: NOC@ipworld.ca

I’d certainly like to spam them back, but I’m not smart enough to do so.

Last post was #1000. Makes me feel old.

I was in the last group of pool members selected today. My group had 80 people in it. I think that means it will be a trial of some notoriety. I go back Wednesday morning for voir dire.

I also opened up the blog today to find several comments awaiting approval. How did that happen? I don’t have this blog set up to monitor comments. I did have several spams yesterday that Blacklist dealt with, so perhaps it automatically switches over when it sees too many too often. I checked configuration, reset, and rebuilt. Sorry if you posted and didn’t see your comment right away. I don’t get enough to worry about, and certainly don’t arbitrarily block anyone. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve blocked anyone.

If you don’t already read Roger L. Simon, may I suggest you take a look at his site. Eclectic is a good word for it today.

Superman is Dead

This is really sad. I thought Christopher Reeve was doing quite well.

Sarah has thoughts on the man and the role.

Wallace is quite proud of his wife, a right-wing fanactic ever since she worked for Dubya.

I’ll let you, dear reader, read for yourself about the goings-on in Midland.
