Blog Updates

After my short fight with trackback spam this morning, I got my stuff together to be an Amazon associate. I played with the MTAmazon plugin briefly before I discovered that MT macros in the entries themselves don't actually get parsed. Argh! Now I cut and paste in a standard Amazon link when I need it. I noticed a few places back into December that could benefit from links, so they are in there now. I also added the search beastie to the strip on the left side.

Some might think I'm getting a tad commercial, but my provider pointed out that I'm using a lot of space now (250MB of mail alone). It wouldn't hurt to get a trickle in from the content I already cover. I used to review books and DVDs far more often before the schoolwork kept me so busy.

I also put in Gravatar support, not that anyone uses it that visits here.

Update: I forgot to mention that I allow unregistered comments again. apparently restricting it to just Typekey users was a bit too harsh. I hope the MT-Blacklist is now ready to handle the spam a bit better. (My activity log shows I get a lot of attempts.)
