Too Much Spam; Comments Off  [ Edit ] 

I haven’t been doing much recording at home lately, although Balkano should have a release within a couple months. I have been itchy lately to do some more music-making, though, so I should be back with some good stuff (or at least some stuff) before long.

Meantime, boring business.

My site is getting slammed by spammers right now for some reason, and Movable Type’s spam filters are just not doing the trick. Along with countless hundreds of spam comments that get automatically junked every hour, dozens have been getting through, at least for moderation if not actually getting published. It’s really irritating, and Movable Type’s templates have changed so much since they started that there’s no easy way to just flick a switch to add a CAPTCHA challenge. So… for now, I’m turning off comments. If you’d like to contact me, please use the link in the sidebar.

UPDATE — Comments are back. We’ll see how it goes now that I’ve added a little something.

Let's see if this thing works here.
