Warning: Me Possibly Acting Stupidly About to Commence

I’m about to try something that might blow up my site. Don’t worry, I’ve already backed up my database. You can worry about everything else, though.

I’ll let you know when my possible stupidity (at least involving this particular thing) is at an end.

Head’s Up About Comments & IP Addressing

I entered a new spam address checker into Movable Type’s database and discovered that I was being blocked from commenting on my own site because the IP address Embarq (my Internet provider) has temporarily provided me is on the spam list. Way to go, Embarq!

Anyway, I’ve fixed this glitch, but you might want to check to see if you can leave a comment by dropping one here. Just a plain comment — don’t confuse the comment filters by adding a URL. If your comment gets swallowed by the ether, drop me an e-mail. If I get too many dropped comments, I’ll decide what to do from there.

Update, 2:35pm: It’s blocking too many people. I’ve dropped it for now.

Dayton Appearance

Just a reminder for folks in the Dayton area: I’ll be making an appearance at Books & Co at The Greene (that’s in Beavercreek) tonight at 7pm. I’ll be doing a reading, Q&A and then signing books. Please do come: If I get a tiny turnout in what is my hometown appearance, I will be, well, sad beyond words. Also, the Books & Co at The Greene is a lovely store, with a really nice author appearance area, one of the nicest I’ve seen. If you haven’t been there yet, you’re in for a treat.
