Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

chain of command

The Economist reviews Seymour Hersh's new book Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib. I watched Hersh discuss the book a few weeks ago on Meet the Press and it sounded interesting. Another one to add to the list.

PS: I just remembered that I recently read House of Bush, House of Saud and I didn't comment on it. Hm. Must fix that.

PS2 (Later): Before that, though, I should talk about the book Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers which I read weeks ago.

the return of the spammer

So today, as a background task, I did a full rebuild of the site, so that the new MT scripts were properly referenced in the archive pages and so on. And lo and behold, it only took about an hour for comment spammers to show up again. Except this time it took only three or four clicks to select all the spam they had already posted, delete them, and ban their IP address. I'm glad I switched over to MT 3.1 or I'd be pulling my hair out again already.

Now to figure out how much bandwidth those invalid posts are costing and how to stop them if possible...
