Because SPAM does more than clog up your arteries

Feb 07, 2007

image I just installed Akismet for EE. I’m waiting to see if it’ll stop the parade of crap I received in my inbox. Because, while I’m all for higher education, University of Phoenix seems to REALLY enjoy talk of one’s hayhay, or at least leaving comments about their school in posts containing the words “Discharge” and “Boob juice.” I was hoping they’d at least find something education related to advertise on.

I’ve been asked about SPAM by a few (hundred) people lately it seems. So far, Akismet seems like the best plug-in around. You can also find other blog platforms here.

And now, I’d like to post CB’s heartbeat. Because not all things suck.


  1. The math challenge plug-in for comments seems to work good as well:

    Good luck!

  3. Wow, you get the best emails.  Boob juice? WTF?  No, on second thoughts don’t tell me.  Hope it works out for you with your new anti-spam software.

    listening to the heart beat brought tears to my eyes.  Beautiful.

  4. Not even my child, and the heartbeat still made me a little teary.  Very beautiful, thanks.

    Yay for CB’s heartbeat- I just love that sounds, it means everything is right with the world (for a minute or two.) ; )

    I miss those days.  Those were the days where I actually had some control over my children. wink
