... and let it out again

We seem to have survived the upgrade. First change so far is that now all comments are moderated, meaning I have to approve them. I'll look into better spam filters later on.

Take a deep breath...

... because I'm about to upgrade to the new version of MT.

Hope to see you on the other side

Please wear hard hat and ear protectors at all times

Over the next few days, I'll be upgrading TTM to a new version of the blog software (Movable Type). This might mean some inconveniences as well as periods of downtime in the near future.

The reasons for this are many:

* There is apparently a new generation of comment spam software out there, that scans the blog and looks for the comment URL, so my earlier ploy of changing the name of the comment script is no longer effective. MT3+ has a number of other spam prevention features.
* MT3+ is now free for personal use
* MT3+ has a number of Technorati Tags plugins that I intend to make use of

So, if something weird happens here in the near future (well, weirder than usual), you'll know what to blame.

Vietnam Game

I almost forgot to mention we had a quite enjoyable Vietnam game last week. Rules were hex-based, as is usual these days when I'm hosting games. Instead of writing a lengthy battlereport, here are the pictures, thanks to Bart and Eddy:

For those who haven't seen it yet:

A very well made video promoting the hobby of wargaming.
