Productivity update

I slept for sixteen and a half hours last night. Jet lag, or sleep debt payment? You make the call.

Anyway, having got up at 1:30pm, I never actually made it in to the office today, what with puttering around and feeding myself. I went on a cleaning blitz at one point, cleaning areas that I hadn't cleaned since I moved in (like my back stair). There was no tidying performed, but at least everything is basically dirt-free now. I really still need to tidy before the weekend, though, since my parents will be in town.

Elsewhere on the productivity front, I finally got sick enough of all the #%^&$# spam that I went and downloaded the Bayesian Spam Filter plugin for MT. It was easy to install, and now I have a convenient interface for flagging comments as spam. Once I've flagged a few, the software will be able to pick them out itself; I'll still have to deal with the spam to actually delete it, but at least it won't make it out to the front page, where it will lend Google karma to people, which is what really most cheesed me off about the whole thing. If ever you post a comment and it doesn't seem to be appearing, that just means the software has erroneously flagged it (but not deleted it)---drop me an email and I'll fix it.

"Root looks taken aback. 'If you're going to tell me that Finns are worse, pound for pound, than the Germans, then I agree with you. But the trouble with Germans is that they tend to be in communication with millions of other Germans.'" --Neal Stephenson, Cryptonomicon
