I just checked, and I am getting the comment problem as well.
Also, were all the other skins deleted because of the comment spam?

I changed them all to the nonplatonic skin... the other skins are still there... but we should probably fix the comment spam issue before using them again, since they seem to attract the spam bots.

I changed the skin to only show comments from users since I've been getting crazy amounts of comment spam. Still, this doesn't seem like the best solution....

Any ideas on how to deal with all the comment spam?

Graham, something with your skin seems to attract the spammers. So I switched it back to the nonplatonic skin.

and someone ought to figure out if we can get it to generate static files automatically.

Collin thinks we should go to the new version and did the work so far on the new skin. It means all the old skins get trashed. Sorry about that.

It basically works. We need to clean up the main skin and fix the uploads so they go to different directories.

As far as cleaning up the skin, the bar at the top of the page could use some work. We might want to do something clever with the linkblog and I'd like to see the comments displayed inline again. I think Collin agrees with at least this last point.

Oh, and the permissions in the blog control panel are all borked. I didn't have permission to post to the admin blog at first...

I'm just going to copy the old blog up to the new server for now. Porting to the new b2evolution alpha (by which they apparently mean release version) is an incredible pain. I'm still trying to get the pictures up from old tom, so until that happens there are going to be a lot of posts with missing pictures. Check the admin blog for further goings on.

In the meantime, it's safe to post again.

If someone wants to fight the good fight with getting the alpha to work, please do. I think that's the last config thing that really needs to be done. I'm also copying your old home directories up, though that only appears to matter for me, Collin and Graham.

If you notice anything else I fucked up with the server, please tell me (or fix it).

Graham discovered that banning the referers stops b2 from processing all the spam traffic, allowing the blog to sort of function.

I just noticed that nearly all the spam referers were going to the blogs of Anwar, Graham and Scott. So, I just edited your templates so you don't show referers on your pages. I assume this will has the same effect it had on the other blogs and our referer spam will go to zero.

I hope.

Does anybody care?

Should I keep uploading stuff? Does anybody ever download it? Just wondering.

I seem to be getting this error intermitently...

MySQL error!

Your query:

I changed the link from our name on a post to go to the homepage specified in the user config gui thing. It used to go to our blogs, but nate doesn't have a blog, so that was stupid.

Other graham has an account where he can post to the main page now. Nate does to, but his potential for posting has yet to be tested. I'm trying to convince others...
