Updating My Movable Type

I'm posting this from my iPhone. That's actually the second update. The plugin that helps for easier posting from my phone depends on the first update, which was me taking a big leap of faith and bringing my Movable Type...

Trains in Nowheresville once again on time

Yes, the Nowheresville trains are once again running like clockwork and according to schedule, now that Movable Type seems to be working properly on the new hosting server. Update: Also, www.nowheresville.org will now work as a proper domain name. That...

Experimenting with Multiblog plugin for Movable Type

I've set up Multiblog to operate on the home page of Hurm.com. Multiblog is a plugin for Movable Type, the content management/blogging system I use for the Hurm Studio portfolio, Local Heroes, and Nowheresville. Below the navigation, you'll see the...

Online comic publishing scripts

I use Movable Type to manage the comic strip and news publishing for Local Heroes, but I really had to massage MT to do what I want for that site. What would I have done if I had to go...

Local Heroes

I've had this idea for an online comic strip about the misadventures of a bunch of superheroes for well over a year, but I've been dragging my feet on actually making it happen. Rather than keep putting it off, I've...

Hurm Studio portfolio code update, stage 1

I've begun an update to the Hurm Studio portfolio HTML code. Each entry now has it's own archive page, and some have moved in their order. More such tweaks to come sometime soon....

Winning the War Against Comment-Spam?

It's quiet...too quiet. My comment-spam seems to have stopped 100%. My Movable Type installation uses three methods to thwart comment-spam, and it seems that methods two and three are the perfect spam-thwarting team....

MT-Keystrokes now active

Today, MT-Keystrokes joins the recently-reactivated MT Blacklist in my fight against comment-spam....

MT-Blacklist reactivated

For well over a year, I've been getting a lot of comment-spam shoved down the throat of my Movable Type-powered content system. For a while, I included MT-Blacklist into my configuration, but it didn't seem to be working so I...

Banding together to fight comment spam

Google has introduced a new rel="nofollow" hyperlink attribute that will hopefully discourage comment spammers from harrassing bloggers (and anyone who gets comment spam) with their posting annoyances. As per the introduction on Google's blog:From now on, when Google sees the...

Movable Type makers buy Live Journal

I just read a rumor at Om Malik's blog that Six Apart, the makers of Movable Type (my preferred online publishing system), may buy LiveJournal (which a free web log service kind of like Blogger). Going over to the Six...

New host for Hurm.com

Hurm.com is now live on its new web site host server. I liked the old host just fine, but these new guys offer all the same bells & whistles, plus a bit more for a bit cheaper. Propigation throughout the...

More spam-posts!

I just finished deleting a few hundred spam-posts. Grrr! There were 1 - 4 spam-comments posted to EVERY Nowheresville article. They all followed the same pattern, so they were obviously from the same source, regardless of what the variety of...

More spam coming in

I woke up to find 12 more comment-spams today. Although my most recent anti-comment-spam technique seemed to be doing the trick, I wonder if I need to change the special hidden value every so often?...

Another tactic to fight comments-spam

Looks like MT-Blacklist wasn't working. Unfortunately, I'm about to go on a trip and can't spend a lot of time researching/implementing a replacement, but the one I found here looks promising. The new tactic is that a hidden value needs...

Comment-spam still coming

I mentioned yesterday that I had implemented a new anti-spam plugin. It doesn't seem to be working very well. I just had to remove 8 new spams. But, I'm still learning how to use the tool, so we'll see how...

Fighting comment-spam

A lot of pharmaceutical and porn services have auto-targeted my site, and I have to delete anywhere up to five spams from my comments section every day. Hopefully the MT-Blacklist plugin I installed will help thwart those spammers....

Setting up your Web site

Webmonkey, a child project of Terra Lycos and my long-time favorite Web creation/tips site, will be closing down following a found of layoffs in their U.S. division. Wired has an article about this shut-down here. In the past, I have...

Testing publishing system

This is simply a test of the site's new publishing system. Everything seems to be working properly on this iteration of the installation. Just as a point of fact, it's also my birthday. :]...
