Going with the flow

So once again I've had the email from pair.com, saying that due to excessive server load, they've had to turn off mt-tb.cgi, the bit of perl in movabletype that deals with trackbacks. The spam level had got to the point where it was hobbling the server.

And, you know, I don't think I'll be turning it back on again.

Stuff it.

So I'll clean up the >3K bits of spam to date, and then just concentrate on blogging rather than continually cleaning out this sodding database. Perhaps if you write something nice about something I've said - now I have the time to say it - you'd drop me an email. Like in the olden days.

(I once heard a spurious theory that the dinosaurs died out because they just couldn't be arsed any more. I know how they feel.)
