Looks like I may have to turn off “comments”


Celebrating the Arrival of my 1,000th Blog Spam :evil:

March 20, 2007

Akismet has caught 1,153 spam for you since you first installed it.

I’ve read many bloggers complaints about blog spam. I was waiting for the 1,000th spam before saying anything. It happened today!

Since this blogs inception I’ve had 4,718 hits and Akismet has caught “1,153” spam comments. The amount of spam is “incredible” ❗


1,000th Hit Today

December 14, 2006

Which means ~ 10 people read something πŸ˜‰

I moved my bloglines clippings blog to this location on Oct 23 and my first test post was on Oct 13. This Blog has been a great experience so far. The blog stats included are fairly thin, but way better than the none I had before. It is great to know what is read, how much, and where readers come from.

I’m going to continue with the following categories:

  • Clippings – Blog posts relevant to Comm Semi end markets. Broadband (PON/DSL), IPTV, Wireless, Internet, Digital Home, etc.
  • Tech Commentary – My opinion on the above.
  • Careers & Management: My own “What the !@#$ Does Marketing Do” series. I don’t know where this is gonna go, but I’ve been mentoring people on this topic for over 5 years. I’ve got a lot of thoughts in my head that wanna come out.
  • Joie de Vivre – My hobbies. Music, TV, Golf, Vancouver Giants, and my problem with taking out the garbage.

Thanks to everyone who has dropped in. I hope it is useful to you. I’m still very much a newbie at this.

Cheers, Iain
