Site updates: new features

The old dependable Spam Karma II plugin was deprecated with version 2.5 or so of WordPress- it was doing an admirable job of managing spam (about 40K messages a year) and screwing up very little- unless your name was Josh, Jesse or Brad (sorry guys).

The new one has a Captcha- let me know if you hate it- there are mods I can make. UPDATE: apparently it grants full access to trackbacks- so I’ve had to add yet another plugin to deal with them. Sorry for any emails to prior commenters for the spam.

I’ve also added a “subscribe via e-mail” for those of you who want an e-mail with each new post (if you don’t follow me on Twitter, or friend on facebook or use RSS). It’s in the sidebar at the right.

Time for a new header too- not sure of what I want it to say yet. Tagline suggestions for this site welcome in comments.

Thanks to all of you who have participated-  your comments make the time spent researching and writing worthwhile.

    New tagline? With apologies to John Cameron Swayze… “Esrati – He takes a lickin’ but keeps on kickin’!!
     
    or…. “Esrati.com – Meet the man behind the mask”
     
    That’s all I can think of for now but I’m sure the ol’ Bandito will come up with something that puts these to shame though.

    No problemo, David.  I’m glad that you appreciate the time and effort that I put into each and every post! ;)
     
    By the way, how do I put a picture of my ugly mug next to my comments?  You know that I want to be just like you! ;)

    Bubba- go to http://en.gravatar.com/ to get an icon- but, you’ll probably have to use a real e-mail address etc.
