If you’ve tried to comment on the site in the last few hours then you’ll probably already have noticed that I’ve upgraded to MT 3.0 and that I’ve turned on most of the draconian comment features. In the last couple of days I have had the better part of sixty comment spams from various hardcore pornography, bestiality and rape sites and quite frankly I’ve had enough.
Anyway as a result of the upgrade there are a few templates across the site that have broken and look a bit crappy. I’ll try and get that stuff sorted over the weekend, once I’ve ploughed through my new book on Illustrator. I’m so far behind in my various obligations outside work that I can’t really imagine I’m going to get everything done I want to over the next couple of days, but I’m going to give it my best shot. In the meantime, I can recommend Troy – it’s long and it’s not particularly accurate, but it’s mostly pretty compelling and has a few ridiculous Classics jokes which appealed to me in it. Back in a bit.
