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.
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.

and in Series:
Heroes, Prison Break, Dexter, Threshold and House.
Quite a list… let’s see how it goes.
With so many shows already on hiatus BSG now also takes a break after its mid season finale “The Eye of the Jupiter”. The series will return on January 21st 2007 but will be moved to Sunday nights. BSG is currently my favorite show and seeing it moved to another time slot plus pausing it for four weeks cannot possibly be good for ratings, which are already slightly down from the previous season. I just hope we are still good for a Season 4. Speaking of Season Finales… Dexter also comes to an end this Sunday!
“The Lost Room” mini series premieres its pilot “The Key and the Clock” tomorrow, Monday 10th Dec. on SciFi, starring Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) as Detective Joe Miller searching for his daughter trying to uncover what mysteries Room Number 10 at the Sunshine Motel on Route 66 holds. It does sound like a creepily interesting piece of mystery SciFi worth checking out.
I just saw the Spiderman 3 trailer (in theatres May 4th 2007) and it does look great. So I had to make a new header picture and if you are lucky you had venom, too (header image is random)! Go watch the trailer! Have some venom today! Visually only, of course!
“Eureka” is a new Sci-Fi show that premiered yesterday on SciFi featuring a small secluded town of geniuses working on mind boggling projects, some for the better some for the worse. An US Marshal gets stuck in the middle of an incidident while transporting a young girl in the back of his vehicle. Dog appears. Brakes screech. Car goes off road. The US Marshal Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) and his prisoner who turns out to be his daughter Zoe Carter (Jordan Hinson) walk into Eureka and crazy things unravel. I had fun watching the pilot just because everything is just so crazy accompagnied by corny one liners and fun acting.
I am definately looking forward to the next experiment.
