Welcome to my bit of the Maison de Stuff, home to a huge load of pictures, and my daily blog.

My email address is as above - I've put it in an image in a vein attempt to reduce the amount of spam I get.

[Saturday 25th November]
Well, at the risk of speaking too soon, today I appeared to have made a significant recovery from the mystery illness which had me somewhat incapacitated the previous day. I still wasn't quite feeling 100% - a bit of a dodgy stomach, and a complete inability to deal with cold temperatures (the fan heater was on all day) - but generally a big improvement.

Most of the day went on working on the new blog engine (which really ought to have an interesting name). It has turned out to be a really mammoth task to replace everything Greymatter was doing for us previously. Today I spruced up the comment handling a bit, and put in some features for dealing with archived entries. Hopefully it is more or less done now - there's only a finite amount of time for which Chie will tolerate me being glued to the computer!

It's quite frustrating that a significant portion of the work involved was dealing with malicious comment posters (i.e. spam). Again I wonder how these people sleep at night, knowing how much of other people's precious time they're wasting.

Ho, hum.
