Blog spam attack

In the last 24 hours this blog has been attacked by nasty porn spammers. I’ve erased dozens of spam comments and trackbacks. 🙂

I’ve turned off trackbacks for now ( 😦 ) and I will add comment captchas later today to try and stop this crap. Anyone have a good suggestion on how to manage trackback ping spam?

Nothing to see here, move along

I haven’t been doing much MusicBrainz stuff the last week besides finally getting my test server up and running .. I’ll explain with two words. Xbox. Halo. ‘Nuff said.

Some media blips I thought others might find interesting:

John Peel, a UK radio DJ luminary who has brought many a budding artist into the limelight through his “Peel Sessions”, has died of a heart attack at age 65. It is a sad day. Details.

Hilary Rosen, the former CEO of the RIAA has, in a Wired article, had some promising words to say about Lawrence Lessig and the Creative Commons license. Details.

That is all.
