I'm still finding my way around WordPress. I think I have all my content and comments moved over from Moveable Type. I origionally decided to move because I kept getting PILES of comment spam and they didn't have the tools I needed and, since I'm not a PERL wizard, I needed something I could hack on. PHP is more my cup of tea.
Anyway, I finally installed comment moderation plugin and cleaned out the latest round of online poker playing spam. Sigh.
Now I'm on a program of finding security tools to manage my Linux system. So how can I be sure my system hasn't been rooted? Even though I have a firewall and I don't read mail on the server machine, there are many bad things out there and many scary stories. The Internet used to be so easy.
