Shutting down comments

This blog gets one or two spam comments almost every day.

The comments are a joke;

I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?

Plz reply as I'm looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. cheers

then a link to promote their own blog, which very likely is just a warehouse for malware.

I tried changing the post, but I don't even think the comments are coming from people. I think they are computer-generated.

So - I'll just shut off comments for a while.

Spam comments continue .......[How To] Change Computer Name in Ubuntu 11.10

I haven't had much to say lately, but I find that I still collect and collect.

I thought this might be useful for me one day, and perhaps for anyone else stopping by here. Here's the article; [How To] Change Computer Name in Ubuntu 11.10

(this post has received a great deal of spam comments, so I thought I'd edit it and see if the spam continues)

I don't know who these bozos are, but they have got to be kidding with their attempts to promote their websites.

And the spam just keeps on coming. I'm trying just editing the post. I suppose I'll have to delete it sometime.

Keep Your Team Connected To You & Each Other

Thanks to Karen for posting this.

The point below in the article hit home for me. I've been a part of geographically disconnected teams where it's been difficult to create camaraderie.

I agree with only the bold parts. I don't know of many employers that would condone team building using a TV show - and, regardless, hulu isn't available in Canada.

"Share a “virtual lunch” with the rest of the team a few times a year. How about ordering lunch in and putting the phone on speaker phone, and sharing a lunch or renting the same video or TV and sharing it over lunch? The conversations are bound to be fun, and if folks get the time to lunch, laugh, and share, they’ll grow closer together if they share an interest. Usually you can get everyone to agree on a TV show and even watching it on or Netflix streaming can be a great way to connect the people on both ends."
