SPLOG = SPAM + BLOG

Returning After a Long Break

I've taken some time off from fighting splogs but now I'm slowly resuming operations. I've been catching up on accumulated splog analysis and I'm about 75% complete after two straight days of script runs. My raw data is now taking up approximately 50 GB and growing at a rate of 300 MB per day. I'm in the middle of some hardware upgrade to handle this growth. Unfortunately one of my file server took a dive in a shallow end of the pool last week and I'll have somehow manage without it.

Not surprisingly splog situation has not improved. Now I'm seeing some annoying redirect splogs that take you right to some gambling site. Adding "127.0.0.1 www.webs-search.com" to /etc/hosts or c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file will stop this annoyance for now. I'll be going after these guys very soon.

Yes. I'm back.

Hey. I have to ask what a file server was doing next to the pool, but I am glad you are back.
