Apologies For My Absence

My lifestyle changed drastically in the last year and a half (long story) and I haven't had a lot of time to update the blog.

I finally approved some very old comments (and cleared out a lot of SPAM).  I do like hearing from you Cameroonian puppy scammers, but why do you guys want German IPs now?  I thought you only hated the Brits.  Now you're going after Germany?  Be careful.  And stop scamming while you're at it.  It's not nice.

I've been thinking about a "Whatever happened to..." article to bring everyone up to speed.  I finally solved the mystery of the disappearing access point and I have formulated my excuses for not updating or promoting PoTTy (there is actually a very good reason).  PoTTy v0.62 (or was it 0.63?) is "tits up and takin' on water".  The last version still works fine.

As for all the proxy requests... sorry but The List just runs and gets what it can get.  The proxy project itself has had a fork in it for quite some time, but I just can't bring myself to shutting it down.  It needs some serious maintenance.  SOCKS proxies have all but disappeared (all those old port 27977 SOCKS proxies were the TDSS rootkit, ya know).  I'm not even sure what happened to the CoDeeN proxies.  Did they kill that project?  Did they figure out my tricks?  I never see any at all, not that I miss them.

Anyway, thanks for all those comments and I'm sorry it took so long to get them approved.
