I finally gave up and installed SpamAssassin on my mail server. I’ve been using CommuniGate Pro’s blacklist and SPF support for several years now, but it’s getting a few false positives, so I had to move to something more flexible.

MT 3.1 Upgrade

Comments Off on MT 3.1 Upgrade

I’ve just upgraded my blog to MT 3.1. The update went fairly smoothly, but I found some pages used the wrong css file name. That may have been there before, so I can’t blame the upgrade for that.

I’ve also found that the “Recent Entries” menu no longer shows all the items. It cuts off anything after the one selected. Looks like a bug in MT, since it happens only with dynamically-generated archives.

The main reason I upgraded was to get the new MT-Blacklist plugin. Comment spam is truly annoying, and this promises to keep it out.

Aigo Bistro

May 18th, 2003

Aigo Bistro, 84 Thoreau St. in Concord, MA, is possibly the best restaurant in the area. My wife and I have eaten there maybe 6 times over the last few years (we save this for special occasions), and we have never had anything but superb meals.

Although they tend to be on the pricy side (for Concord), Aigo Bistro is Highly Recommended.

Walden Grille, 24 Walden St., in Concord Center.

My wife and I ate dinner here on Saturday, May 17, 2003. It was a disaster. Even allowing 90 minutes for dinner before a show (across the street), our dinner arrived 10 minutes before we had to leave, and it was grossly overcooked to the point of being charred (tenderloin in puff pastry).

The manager was polite about not charging us for the inedible food, but the bad service plus the horrible preparation of the entree earns Walden Grille a rating of Not Recommended.
