Upgrading my web presence.

Yes, I registered, yay for personal branding on the Internet. 

I'm working on the blog. I am not entirely sure that I need a new blog, and I still have it in the lunarpages equivalent of the basement workshop, trying to figure out how to get it configured the way I want. But I am liking Wordpress, and things look promising - a lot more control than Blogger offers, with concomitant risk of b0rking your install and having to start over. 

Once I get it presentable, I need to move all of my historical posts over there. Assuming I don't break it again and have to start over. 

But the work is underway. 

Also to come: some kind of home page. And a wiki, ideally Confluence - 10-user licenses are $10.

Comment spam sucks

I guess I should take it as some kind of sign that I've arrived. I got a wave of comment spam rich with names of and links to gaming sites. That's gaming as in the computer type, which is at least on-topic for me, if not for the post they were attached to.

So I've turned on Captcha and enabled comment moderation. Sign of the times, I guess.
