I was just wondering how useful it would be to combine GaMerZ’s plugin WP-Ban with AKismet’s IP data, i.e. store all IPs from AKismet in a table before flushing the spam and keep count how often an IP is used for spamming, e.g. take a look at this:
You will notice that 72.232.*.* is quite a spammer and with enough statistical data we could let WP-Ban know that and avoid having to deal with those spam comments at all. If you want to get rid of a problem, get rid of the source. AKismet is all nice and dandy but it doesn’t do enough. Storing the IPs in a table and keeping count will eventually lead to a network of IP ranges used for spamming and why not ban those ranges? What would be the downside? False positives? Well, I couldn’t care less if a few false positives will mean less to no spam, you have to make sacrifices for the greater good.
I have been looking for a stylish yet practical case for my Nintendo DS Lite for a long time and when I found sfbags.com I knew my search was over. Ladies and gentlemen, let me present my new NDS Lite Case from Waterfield Design, a lightweight of leather and ballistic nylon at 85 grams and slim as can be with a mere 14.5 x 9 x 3 cm.
The ordering process was painless and the confirmation and shipping was prompt. The look and feel of the case is excellent and it has room for enough games, too. I read other reviews where people also put the charger in there but this is not possible I am afraid. The (EU) charger is just too bulky for this case to fit in. The pocket at the back could hold an USB charger cable, though.
Dudes and dudettes brace yourselves for the sheep are coming! Black Sheep is a dark dark (yes dark*2=darker) horror comedy hitting the cinemas in March about 40 million sheep in New Zealand and dudes… these sheep are pissed off… really, really really a big genetically mutated BAAAAA³!
After seeing the trailer I am utterly convinced that this is one stupid movie I will have to see, I must, I mean it’s sheep, OK? SHEEP!!!! 40 friggin’ million sheep and they’ll do you for! That is not something you want to miss… or is it? Sheepodelically unreal stuff..!
Oh yes, and it’s R13 Violence, horror scenes and offensive language… just so you know.
Mel Gibson’s latest film “Apocalypto” (2006) is about a young man Jaguar Claw (Youngblood) who gets captured during a raid on his village. He is marched off with the rest of the survivors to the local temple to be sacrificed.
One thing first, this is not a documentary, so if you expect to see what the Mayan civilization was like then you best go grab some books on the topic. This is just a movie that picks that time era as a setting for what can be only described as a powerful visual and graphically explicit jungle adventure. Any debate on how Gibson fails to accurately depict or slanders a culture long past is futile and those who do, please stop confusing film with reality.
