I mostly talk about video games and the world wide web

New Pants

As you perhaps might know, the CMS on this site is entirely built by me because I apparently have some sort of weird affinity for reinventing the wheel since there are a large variety of CMSs that do what this one does and probably more. However it's a fun project and I enjoy figuring out new ways to attempt to block spammers, thus far the biggest hurdle to not using a tried and true system like Word Press or something.

At any rate, I have been making a fuckload of changes to it over the last few months and I finally reached a point where I decided to roll them out to a non-test site. I think the biggest change is currently the search function, which is not too shabby because I make the database server do all the work.

That's all for now. I have an entirely too long tirade about Spider-Man 3 that I will post some day, but I need to finish writing it first. Yes it's very long and nerdy.

Yes, I will be hasty and claim Van Helsing was better than Spiderman 3.

I never saw Van Helsing but I wouldn't go as far to say it was awful... it just wasn't very good :(

i dunno if you ever tried something like this, but a buddy of mine added a simple bullet or checkbox selection that simply said 'are you a bot' or something and you only had to check/select no to post, last i checked he still didn't have a speck of spam on his forums. could be worth a try! ;)
