It seemed like a good idea, to have a blog. Never thought I’d have to maintain it beyond entering posts. But Lo! Behold! 250 odd comments, all of which are spam. The blog engine I’m using doesn’t handle spam comments well, so I have to go to the mySQL database and delete them at source. So I am now realising that it is time to use a different blog engine. WordPress comes reccomended. The documentation is all fairly straight forward. So now to estimate how long it will take me to upgrade. Recalling my velocity last time round, to install the engine and update CSS across the whole site, (a bunch of simple stories for seasoned developers) took me on and off 12 months. So maybe I’ll be deleting spam in mySQL for a while longer…
