If I don’t reply to your comments, and your comment never gets ‘approved’ then it probably got tagged as spam. I’d normally get 20-30 a day, but the last month its been a steady 200-300++ spams, and I simply cannot get through them all so I’ve beenÂ periodicallyÂ purging the whole thing. Â From what I can tell the blog software & filters is doing a good job, so I can only assume that is fine…
But I do know in the past that there have been legitimate posts lost in there, and now there really is no hope. Â For example right now the stats read:
1073Â Visits Â 2644Â Pageviews with 8% of those being SPAM.
which is pretty cool to think there has been ~987 unique people to hit my blog in the last 24 hours!
I hope to take all the spam as a sign that I’m growing. Â I know last year was a ‘good year’ for updates.. Although I haven’t made any resolutions for the new year.. I do hope to keep up the posts!.. Even if finding new & exciting things seems to be hard as I’ve covered so much so there probably will be quite a bit of revisiting but such is life.
Although I will get out one goal through the year, and that is to program this sega genesis I bought. Â Not just the emulator but I have high hopes to somehow program this beast!!! Â From what Ive doneÂ researchÂ wise my ‘attack’ vector will be the CD-ROM as it is trivial to burn a CD, while making a ROM cartridge will require a programmer.. Maybe if I get too crazy I may buy one but for now I’m content to collect a few more model-1 CD drives and get them at least working to the point they can boot up some CD’s (I’ve got two now!)..
Oh well that is my minimal goals. Â If I were more motivated I’d tear into google’s NACL and port some games, or some emulators…
But who knows the year is still young.
