Forum Cesspool Cleaned Out

Friday, January 11th, 2013

For those of you that have visited in the last year I apologize. The forum had for some time become a target of spammers – most of the ip addresses were chinese and there were all sorts of posts for handbags and movie downloads and who knows what all junk. There were as of late [...]

What do I do?

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

I’m sure to some people it seems as though I rarely visit here to post. There are some that write in and seem to have the impression that there are many people that work on the site. I thought I’d take a moment to let you know it’s just one person. I try to keep [...]

Strange Cache Problem – Technical Note

Friday, October 31st, 2008
