Can't leave town for 2 days....
without the spammers coming out of the woodwork...  Do you think they monitor my house?  Who knows.  Sorry for all the spam this weekend.  I have removed the posts and placed some more filter help to stop them.  I will be monitoring the site closer now that I have a connection again.  SubText will definitely help us against this when we launch.

Posted On Sunday, November 26, 2006 4:45 AM 2.0 Initial Roadmap
Well after 3 years of .Text it is time to move on. For the next version of we will be implementing a spinoff of .Text named SubText. Our team is currently working on a smooth import process as well as adding the features of .Text that we added to make SubText a very smooth transition.

If you notice any issues with this version, ping with your problem and screenshot if you can. Technorati tags: Geekwithblogs, FreeTextBox, .Text ......

Tired of Contact Page SPAM - CAPTCHA has been added
I don't know about you guys, but over the past couple months, I have been getting a lot of SPAM via the Contact page on my blog. I knew this would happen since it would be extremely easy to scrap the site and find this page on every blog with a simple form to fill out. Since this has been a huge problem, we added CAPTCHA to this form. Just like adding a comment, this process makes it very difficult to automate auto filling and submitting. This will not stop spammers who are willing to fill out the ......

First Few Days on the New Servers
I need to start publishing site related news on this blog again as that is the exact reason I started this blog. The honeymoon period is over with the new hosted servers and it is time to start fighting a few small fires that keep popping up with IIS and the site. With the new horsepower, it is hardly noticable when an error occurs, but they are still happening (we knew we wouldn't be able to throw servers at this problem). Hopefully I will find some solutions to the problems we are having this week ......
