this-tor-node-is-causing-you-grief

In the last couple of days I experienced strange visitors on our holiday apartment site. They came through a TOR network and were trying to create users on the page. Apparently they understood that it was a Drupal site, because they had the right URL and everything.

I had never heard of TOR before, so I’m quite amazed to see visitors from the dark side of the internet. On the other hand, its a pain-in-the-butt to delete the 30+ users that they create on a normal day. Does anybody out there have experience with these types of attacks?

Checking Out Plugins

Whole bunch of stuff here. Likes for pretty much every social network, auto-posting to Twitter, Facebook and Google+, spam protection and what else.

Now that I went to getting all the credentials, the tokens and the very secret tokens I’m getting sort of tired. And I’ve given 10 bucks to Aksimet for protection. They have this weird  registration site where you see a smiley looking at you sadly until you give him money. The more money you give, the happier he is looking. Actually, it’s probably not so stupid if I think about it. Don’t we all want to make somebody smile?

Anyway, in a second I will know if my post to Twitter works. Bear with me!

Fuzzing Around with Stats and Such

Spend quite some time to set up all my blogs and stuff, to post to Facebook, to collect statistics, to get away from Google Analytics and so on. Wanted to go to bed early last night, but guess what – I got really sucked into this time trap.

But I have achieved a couple of things, and I’m pretty happy with my progress:

So I had fun. But the night was over way too early.
