Buzz beaten by a girl on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Buzz, Buzz, Buzz. I’m disappointed and saddened by this sorry display.

Bowblog: Sort of Proustian, really

Does it still smell the same?

On the thankfully rare occasions that I get a whiff of root beer I’m transported back to the days of grazed knees and the application of Germolene.

Barbican tree on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Lovely - without the buildings it would just be a picture of a tree. As it is the buildings make the tree look more solitary.

I can see the tree from my flat but I don’t think I’ve ever really looked at it properly until I saw this photo.

Yoz Grahame’s Cheerleader: MovableType advice needed

I hope there’s a better solution, but failing that…

MT 3.2 does let you list all Comments on your weblog on one page (well, split up into pages). So if you don’t have many genuine comments among the spam, it’ll be simple to list, say, 125 comments at a time, click the unobtrusive ‘check all’ checkbox and mark them as Junk.

BTW, the option to list more Comments on that page is even more unobtrusive and is found in the ‘Show display options’ link at the bottom left of the page.

If you just upgrade from 2.x to 3.2 there is some mysterious upgrade process that *might* look for junk comments among the existing comments. But then again it might not. And it doesn’t sound like this would help you either way. Good luck!

Flypostering is Wrong on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

When I saw one of these I did hope it was at least some arty Nathan types making a definite statement about, er, something.

Unfortunately it’s for some kind of disco thing: http://www.ents24.com/web/event/1073893/Very_Very_Very_Wrong_Indeed.html

Looks like their flyposting campaign is a little ahead of their online campaign however: http://www.veryveryverywrongindeed.com/
