Once again some quick PHP hacking to get this to work:

The first and last diff, I had to find from browsing the forums, the last bit I took from my 0.9.2 hacked make the time stamp valid. The 2 * 3600, is hard coding the time offset between local time and server time....

What isn't present in the diff, is that I don't use usename:password or subject prefix....I simply trust that email coming a certain addresses correspond to a given user. So, far it has worked.

Welcome to my new blog location


You may have gone to, and ended up here. But, you are in the right place. :wave:

I had been meaning to upgrade the blog software for a long time, the old site was running 0.9.2 of b2evolution. Which I had extensively modified its PHP code to introduce a variety of customizations. Both appearance and back office hacks. Particular in dealing with spam.

Not sure if the new version does spam as good as I had it before, but they are up to version 2.4.1 now and there are some neat things that it can do that I've been wanting to try.

When my old host (before dreamhost) decided to become unreliable (without explanation), I wasn't ready to do the work of I restored the blog onto dreamhost and went on my way. But, then dreamhost got unreliable...and I started thinking that maybe I should look at moving once again. While browsing around on, I found that was available...and having some promo codes to try out...I went ahead and registered it. I used GB1.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
