Site News: Bad Behavior Spasm, Switching to New VPS Server..

Hello!

As many of you already know, the popular WordPress anti-spam plugin, Bad Behavior, caused some problems yesterday, and as a result many bloggers and users were locked out of their favorite sites, including this one. As for now, the problem seems to be fixed, however, the experience of being locked out of my own site has left a rather unpleasant taste in my mouth.

Needless to say, I will be reconsidering the continued use of Bad Behavior as a part of my long-term anti-spam strategy. In the meantime, everything is up and running fine again (with Bad Behavior disabled) – comments are working, and I can even log in to admin to write new posts :)

In other news, Perishable Press is moving to a new server! I just switched the DNS to my new VPS nameservers, so hopefully everything will propagate and transfer without a hitch. Nonetheless, if something does happen to go wrong, Perishable Press may be offline for a spell, but rest assured, I am all over it..

So – here goes nothing – I am pulling the plug on the old server..

See you on the other side ;)

    Hopefully the new switch will ensure that your website has no further problems. I have had to upgrade severs many times and it is not something that is a fun experience.

    Yes, there are three things on the Web that nobody likes: shopping/switching hosts, server downtime, and comment spam.

Thanks to Nicholas Ferrell for his excellent and thorough review of Wutsearch search-engine launchpad.
Great article about using RSS as a Facebook alternative. I use RSS/feeds for news every day. Facebook, not so much.
