Beer photo from NYE

Check this out. Really cool MACRO photo of my home brew called Sherpa Pale Ale. Look at the head on it. Click it for high res.

Advanced Enochian Magick

Last night I ran a great interview with Frater W.I.T. who is a thelemic magician with a long history. He just released his second book, Advanced Enochian Magick, and during the interview we speak about his book, group work, history of enochian magick, and dispell some of the myths surrounding it. This should be up in a week or so on my podcast site.

Wordpress comments issues

On one of my wordpress blogs, I ran into an issue where there were 4000 plus comments that were all spam, and I couldn't get rid of them due to time constraints. I had this issue for months. Then I finally loaded the builtin spam filter, and when I tried to run it, it crashed because it couldn't handle that much spam. Weeks went by and finally last night while watching Cloverfield, I realized that I knew how to use myPhpAdmin, a mySQL administrative tool. We learned all about mySQL in college. So after figuring out which DB mapped to which blog, I then browsed the comments and found the stash of 4000 spam comments.

The sql browser enabled me to set the view to 1000 or more entries at a time, so I chose 1000 and began deleting everything after post 50. I killed them all but 500 and let the spam filter do the rest.


I may do a tutorial with screenshots eventually because I can't be the first person to have this problem.
