I’m back and what a mess

It’s been a long time since the last time i write something, and what a mess this place is when i returned… a week ago or so. There are way too many spam that even the empty spam button couldn’t do anything about it so i have to use sql command directly just to clean it. Not to mention there are way too many spam that goes through Akismet too and ended up directly in the comment area.

According to Akismet, for last month (september) the amount of spam that got caught was at 125,966 while for this month as of writing this the number of spam is at 115,945. I’m simply stunned. If a small blog like this could get such a large amount of spam, how big would it be for larger blogs?. Must be really stressful.

Besides doing some cleaning, i have also made changes to many things here and there. I moved from my old hosting provider into a new budget vps that is cheaper and also enabled SSL although it is not on by default, which means you need to change the url into https by yourself first and then the rest of your visit would be in SSL (if anyone care).

Finally after i’ve finished setting up everything also making sure that the new server can stay up and running for several days without problem (and not getting kicked too), I then canceled my old hosting plan. And so here begins the new chapter of this blog.
