  • Blog Problems Fixed!

    Posted by Jonathan on March 16th, 2006 (All posts by )

    The Chicagoboyz commenting system seems to be out of order, perhaps due to issues at the hosting company. I apologize for any inconvenience. Whatever the problem is, I suspect it will be fixed before very long.

    UPDATE: The hosting company renamed our comments script because it was causing “load issues” on their server. This seems odd, as we have a Turing system that prevents automated comment spam. Perhaps trackbacks are the real problem. Whatever it is I will try to get comments back up ASAP.

    UPDATE 2: Ah, turns out the Turing thing only blocks posting but does not prevent the running of CGI processes that clog up the server when a lot of spam comes through, as happened this afternoon. Comments are working again.

      random test comment:

      I was reading and I thought the author’s name looked familiar. Not quite, but close.

      Ha. Actually, while the names appear similar at first glance, they are probably unrelated.
