Akismet plugin

I have been running this blog without any spam filter.  Let me tell you it was a big mistake.  I just updated the wordpress version I’m running.  Since I was doing the housekeeping I thought maybe I should also activate the Akismet plugin.  Pretty much the Akismet plugin will catch all the spam comments.  Similar to email spam filters, it works great.  I should have activated it day 1.

Another nice geeky thing, if your running Ms media center instead of Tivo, do yourself a favor and install McBuddy.  It can cut those commercials out for you so you don’t need to fast forward when watching your fav shows.
