Spam free crap, really?

I get the eco­nom­ics of spam.  I com­mon­ly con­fig­ure FreeB­SD sys­tems to route pack­ets or serve as VoIP switch­es.  One com­put­er pro­grammed to exam­ine and route bil­lions of tiny lit­tle pack­ets each day.  Rout­ing bil­lions of pack­ets or 100’s of … Con­tin­ue read­ing

WordPress: easy, Ad plugin: not so easy…

You didn’t expect abject altru­ism, did you?  Are you sur­prised that one of the first things I’d be fig­ur­ing out is how to put ads on my blog?

1st post.

Hrnh.  That was easy.  I’ve installed word­press for a few clients late­ly and this has made me real­ize that the bar for writ­ing a blog has got­ten very low.  Word­Press is insane­ly easy to install.
