I’ve added quite a lot more from the old site back into the new version. There’s more to come over the next few weeks.

Today’s is going to be a none bike related post. I’ve been having a lot of problems with the site guestbook since I relaunched the site. It’s the fourth piece of guetbook software I’ve tried over the years and I’m currently using Matt Wright’s simple guestbook. The problem is that this seems to be a known favourite with spammers, which has meant that over the last few weeks a number of spammers or spam robots have made entries.

Now these have tended to be adverts for drugs and given this is a cycling website, that might not be so out of place, but as it’s now reached irritating proportions a fix was needed. This has come in the shape of Junkeater, a tidy little PHP utility that filters entries for spam origins and also includes a nice little javascript confirmation utility. First impressions are that it seems to do work, so I’ll have to see if it solves the problem over the next few days.
