The comment spam blocking is working, now if I could just do the same with my email!!

I run several different pop email accounts through Outlook at home: my work account, two different accounts through my ISP, a couple of different Digger Solutions accounts and a couple of odds-n-ends accounts.  I’m guessing that both my ISP’s and…

Comment Spamming Bastard Wiener Bastards !!

(the title is a quote borrowed from Rory Blyth ) Thanks to Scott Mitchell’s post today - Stopping Comment Spam in .Text using Triggers , I finally had the nerve to pull the trigger (pun intended) and implement this: Preventing .Text Blog Spam…

Update Am I a bad person for doing this?

RE: Am I a bad person for doing this? Apparently I am. While everything worked fine using Firefox it didn’t work at all in IE.  I was a little bit floored to say the least.  Usually IE is much more forgiving. Passing the content to be displayed in…

Please do not post your comment spam here !!

In dire need of an Xbox ???

If you are like me and didn’t get that Xbox you wanted for Christmas, you probably have been searching high and low for one since. After searching EVERY local store this week that might even carry video game hardware and checking all the major online…

Solved a tough problem today Using a dropdown list with autopostback that updates data in the row inside a repeater.

I was finishing up development for a project we are wrapping up today and one of the last things I was working on was a fairly simple administrative page (so I thought!). On this page I had two lists of documents that are associated with a product…

Some Parting Thoughts before the Weekend
