The Evolution (or Design) of Comment Spam

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

Guess I’ll have to see if WordPress has anything new for comment spam.  I’ve just received a ton of spam on posts for which the comments are closed.  I guess the spam has developed a resistance to closed comments.

Light blogging

Monday, March 6th, 2006

I’m on dialup this week AND it’s spring break.  Blogging will be (and has been) light.
I’ll leave you with this thought: could the Academy Awards become any less relevant?  The Best Picture is a movie that few people could probably describe, and the Best Song has Pimp in its title.
I almost didn’t even want to […]

Marauders, Bake Sales, Tablets, etc.

Monday, January 30th, 2006

The blogging will be light this week (maybe some posts like this one, but probably nothing terribly profound), as I will be entertaining my former PhD advisor this week. We are hosting him at Western as a Visiting Scholar.
Here are a few tidbits to keep you occupied:
Item #1 “It’s an interesting study, but what’s […]

WordPress 2.0

Saturday, January 28th, 2006

Part II is coming

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

(We read about them the other day in homeschool)

Second Week Down

Sunday, January 22nd, 2006

In Mathematical Concepts, we talked a lot about probability. I tried to get students to understand how to figure out what the possible equally likely events were in a number of probability scenarios (coin tosses, dice throwing, card drawing, etc.). I blew one explanation near the end of Tuesday’s class and had to […]

Problems with Sitemeter?

Sunday, January 15th, 2006

Sitemeter tells me I had three visits last week (starting on the 8th and ending on the 14th). Does that seem right to you? I count four different individuals who commented this week, and I know some of them visited more than once. Furthermore, I sometimes go to the site myself to see […]

Theme Switcher

Saturday, January 7th, 2006

In my never ending quest to come up with a better theme, I’ve taken a side road. I’ve decided to let you, the reader, decide on the theme you want.
Over on the sidebar (usually near the top, but not always), you’ll find a theme dropdown box. Choose whatever theme you like best. […]
