Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

We Will Fight Them on the Beaches, in the Streets, and in the Hills!

They’re not gonna get to me, goddammit.

They’re preying on our fears, trying to intimidate us into submission, or even surrender. They’re relentless, unstoppable, inhuman monsters, intent on bending the world to their will.

But they’ll not have me. I will fight the good fight, and dammit, I’m gonna win.

I’ll not change my life in response to their hateful attacks and constant threats. I’ll not cross the street to avoid them, nor bar my door and hide. I will live my life the way I always have, the way I want, and their ominous presence be damned.

You will not win, you terror-mongering bastards! It. Will. Not. Happen. Not to me. Not in my house. I’ll see you in hell, damn you!

(Um… ahem. Have I mentioned lately how much I fucking hate comment spammers? *sigh*)

So, apologies to anyone who’d like to leave a real comment in the next couple of hours or so, but I’ve had to disable the comment link temporarily. Those spam-spewing spootheads are trashing the hard drive on this server with their attempts — make that feeble attempts, given that MT-Blacklist is stomping on ninety-nine-plus percent of them — to use my weblog as their personal fucking billboard space. Well, fuck ’em.

They win this round, but they’ll not win the war.

In the meantime, sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you. And for any loneliness it causes me, to be without comments for a while until I sort out a better way of throttling their craptacular bullshit.

(Of course, the only really good way would be to throttle them, and preferably with something barbed and electrified. In lieu of that, though, I’ll be happy when I can again keep their spam-spooge at bay without bringing the machine to its knees. I’ll get you, my little uglies!)

Hopefully, all will be back to normal soon. And something entertaining will appear here again. Hopefully.

(Oooh, actually — my standup clip from last night’s show at the Comedy Studio is almost ready, so look out for it in the ‘Standup Standup’ section on the sidebar soon. That’ll be entertaining, I’m sure — laugh at me, with me, about me… hell, laugh despite me, if you like — it’s all good. Just so long as you get a yuk or two out of it.)

Okay, that’s it for now. Back to the bunker to work out an improved defense plan against these spambotting assbadgers. I’ll have comments back up in some form or another soon. Those fuckers don’t win, dammit! They just can’t! Peace out.

    Comments are back, baby! Fire at will, and damn the spam-pedoes! Yah!

  2. Monkey says:

    I hate those fuckers, I hates em.

    The upgrade of MT and blacklist seems pretty good, what with the stop comments for entries X days old feature. Another good trick is to hotlink protect or change the name of your mt-comments.cgi file so the google cache variety of spammers can’t find the script to crap it up.

  3. Monkey again says:

    Hey, lookit – barcelona. Excuse me, I’m going to crawl back under my rock now.
