Happy Birthday Mixing Memory

Mixing Memory turns 1 year old today. Blogging for a year has been an interesting experience. I've run into many stimulating people, learned a lot about a bunch of different things, and wasted many hours.

Thank you to everyone who's visited in the last year. I hope you all continue to drop by. You should all feel free to write me with requests for posts, suggestions for the blog (after a year, I still don't really know what the hell I'm doing), or glowing praise. I prefer the last of these personally, but the first two are probably better in the long run. Also, it appears that the blog world says happy first birthday with an influx of comment spam. If anyone knows how to get rid of it, I'd love to hear from you in particular.

Happy Birthday! The first five years are the hardest.

Happy birthday! Your blog is awesome.

Re comment spam, Blogger now has a "word verification" feature so that commenters have to type in a word that appears as a distorted image...you could try that.

praise be unto you and the fruit of your loins unto the 777th generation.

Congrats!

Word-verification is a pain. A better way is to fool the spam-bots by getting rid of the "post a comment" link. Replace it with some other text, e.g. "Add a comment", and the bots will never find it.

Here's the code to use:

[a href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=8182098&postID=[$BlogItemNumber$]"]Add a comment[/a]

but replace square bracket with angular ones, of course.

So if I've not been reading the blog, do you still want glowing praises from me? I'd be willing to give them ;). You're a fun, intelligent guy, who makes good conversation. I'll leave this anonymous and let you figure out who it is (although I don't have a blog on this system to log in under anyway). TTFN
