You probably don’t know, but I’m working with some other Fedora contributors on a Fedora install of WordPress MU. The thing is, for a spam solution, all of it has to be open source, so Akismet or reCAPTCHA won’t work. So I ask you, Fedora users and contributors. Firstly, is spam an issue on your blogs? If so, what do you use for anti-spam on your self-hosted WordPress blog? Leave a nice little comment.
Am I the only active author on here? Is it the end of OKS Blog as we know it?
Here at OKS Blog, we’ve come a long way. We’ve faced downtime, but we prevail. I want you all to know how great you are and how important you are to me.
I’m very fortunate to have the number of visitors I have, and I’m fortunate to have the enthusiastic authors here as my friends.
It’s been a long time coming, and one more comment will be the 100th comment.
I am happy to continue administering OKS Blog, and we will continue to flourish for years to come!

In case you don’t know what ScribeFire is, it’s an addon for Firefox that lets a user write posts from the bottom of Firefox without ever leaving the web page you’re on. You can get it at http://tinyurl.com/yrnml6.
ScribeFire allows you to post to blogs such as WordPress and Blagger. This blog, in fact, is supported by WordPress. What I would like to know is if it is possible to post to this blog. The site editor can reply to this post by including a list of steps to set up ScribeFire to post to here.
UPDATE (6/15/2009 @ 7:20): The site editor has replied
OKS Blog is powered by WordPress 2.9-rare (as I write this comment).
Setting up ScribeFire to post to OKS Blog is easy.
Just use http://oks.verymad.net/~onekopaka/blog/ as the URL and your username and password to login to the Admin interface here.

My last name doesn’t have a space…

Hmmm… I’m trying it out and it doesn’t seem to be working. When I try to load a post, it refuses to load. I just have to try publishing a new post.
16:30 – ScribeFire can now post (I sent a test post), but can’t edit. Looks like Mr. VanBuren will have to work this out.
If you were wondering why posts weren’t showing up at @oksblog, after I upgraded WordTwit, I had to reconfigure. This problem is now fixed, and this post is testing WordTwit.
Wow, after so long waiting for Darren’s blog to be put back up, it’s finally up!
During the time that this blog was down, I actually created a new blog on WordPress, which this blog is based off of. It’s at deathgleaner.wordpress.com
But now that this blog is back, I don’t know what to do. Should I keep my blog on WordPress? Or should I post here? My previous preference before this blog went down was to post on this blog, but for now, you can find me active (more or less) on both my WordPress and this blog.
Update (3/6/09 17:15PST): I have made up my mind. School-related stuff will go here and everything else on my other blog at WordPress. Of course, I’m flexible, so keep updated!
Update (9/6/09 20:15PST): Maybe not just school stuff will go on this blog. I will decide at my own will which blog I’ll post to.
Yes, after too much downtime, OKS Blog is BACK!!
Onekopakaspace Blog now has its own twitter account for it to tweet to. Isn’t that cool? It’s @oksblog for you to follow.
Here at OKS Blog, we take pride in running WordPress right from the SVN tree. This allows for easy upgrades and we get to beta test WordPress thoroughly. We also get new features as soon as they come in. So we wait for the WordPress developers to get WordPress 2.8 work underway, and relax.
There’s a lot of new things in Firefox 3.1, which is set to be released sometime in the first quarter of 2009. There’s plenty of new features. So, here is one of the new features. Take a look at this box:
