|Grant (10 Jun 2004 16:39): I suggest a new name for the blog, more fitting with the actual content:
Alternatively, you could start reading your own web page. Man.
|Paul (13 Jun 2004 5:33): Sorry. I graduated this last week and things were hectic...|
|Grant (13 Jun 2004 22:33): It's cool. I thought that 'no-paul-a-blog' was an awesome pun, though, so I couldn't pass it up.|
|Paul (19 May 2005 20:33): Looks like .a.la has disappeared from afraid.org. I guess that's what sucks about Free DNS: if they offer it free, they have no obligation to keep it available. Well maybe I should buy my own domain, now that they're like $10 a year (right?), it no longer seems obvious that people should have to pool together to get DNS without getting ripped off. Or maybe I should find someone I know with a domain I can get a subdomain off of? Hm.|
|Paul (19 May 2005 20:36): PS. if you wanted ip.a.la, use 220.127.116.11 for now|
|Grant (19 May 2005 23:47): You want to put it on grza.net? Just a thought.|
| (19 May 2005 23:52): That is... mancala.grza.net will point here, just for fun.|
(when the DNS propagates)
However, if you would actually like to toss the files up there, that can be arranged, too. Or whatever.
|Paul (20 May 2005 21:19): Thanks Grant! well, sorry folks, we all have to type seven more letters to get here now, but at least we have a way to get here. (I guess for ten additional chars, you could use digitalaudiorock.com/~paul, but 26 chars seems pretty long)|
|Grant (21 May 2005 6:39): Well, if keystroke-scarcity is your metric for awesome-osity, then I've got something else for you:|
I don't know, is that better, somehow?
(again, this is pending DNS propagation)
|Paul (22 May 2005 6:03): Awesomeosity! 10 keystrokes! btw, are you and me the only ones that can still find this page now?|
|m (22 May 2005 12:34): grza.net tells me "stop searching. happiness is right next to you." it's awesome. also, grza doesn't have that second period, but I think punctuation rules mandate that I stick it there inside the quote instead of after it. I am tremendously vexed by that particular rule. also, is there content beyond the hellsing-styled portrait of you, grant? c'mon, man -- gimme some candy.|
|Grant (22 May 2005 16:37): Well, yes and no. How's about this?|
The Hokochan Wiki and HokoChan? There's, uh, nothing there right now. But I'll try to fix that.
It's just that I've been busy or something ever since I came back from Korea. It's kind of stupid how little I've gotten done, when I think about it.
|Grant (22 May 2005 16:38): Oh, right- and there's also an FTP thing set up.|
So, I should give you an account and such.
|m (24 May 2005 14:41): grza is your own machine running sshd, right? Man, I'll just fill your HD via scp...|
|Grant (24 May 2005 17:20): Actually, no. I only have one computer at the moment, and it's an iBook. I quite like it, really. I miss some of my desktop amenities, but they're just a faint memory, now.|
Anyways, because I have a laptop and stuff, I actually take my computer with me. Every day, to work. So while I thought about setting it up as a server for some stuff (I've got some crazy bandwidth), it might be a little inconvenient, with it only actually up for half the time.
Right now, I have around a 2.5 GB disk quota for grza.net, and a bandwidth quota I'm not really worried about.
|m (24 May 2005 17:20): grant -- origin of grza? RZA?|
|Grant (24 May 2005 17:42): Yes, actually.|
Embarassing, isn't it?
|alex (8 Nov 2008 15:16): CIm82M fkjgh62vDfulv0s5FvSa|
|G (8 Nov 2008 15:34): Wow. Pretty funny, really.|
Maybe mancala needs a pseudo CAPTCHA field for posts.
Something like: "In this field, type the name of the animal that symbolizes peace. Four letters."
|alan (10 Nov 2008 1:11): 8HJhG5 blkOpwF7nnBsJ42K7La|
|Paul (10 Nov 2008 3:32): Maybe I could use some kind of honeypot like Mike suggested...a hidden field that must be left blank...|
|Paul (10 Nov 2008 3:34): That was Grant's suggestion, wasn't it. Not Mike's...|
|mike (10 Nov 2008 8:52): 8HJhG5 blkOpw|
(a) Change the labels so the spam-bots don't catch on that this is a message-board.
(b) Add an invisible honey-pot field.
(c) Change your robots.txt to read "Disallow: spam"
|G (10 Nov 2008 16:22): d) Add a captcha, or a fake captcha. I imagine that the latter would be equally effective as the former, and would be fairly easy to implement.|
|m (10 Nov 2008 20:18): Fake-captcha honey-pot field.|
|G (11 Nov 2008 1:30): I guess I didn't mean 'fake,' I really meant 'trivial.'|
It doesn't have to be randomly generated or anything.
Just a single field with a known, correct answer.
|m (11 Nov 2008 14:18): Quick! Fix!|
|G (11 Nov 2008 15:07): :(|
|G (11 Nov 2008 15:08): What's the frowny equivalent of :3 ? |
It's gotta be 3: , right?
|G (11 Nov 2008 17:40): New name: Spamalablog.|
|R (11 Nov 2008 19:29): Personally, I'm fond of :C|
