Are you a web developer or designer? Do you want a local LAMP server for all your building and experimenting needs? Do you often use WordPress but up until now all your work has been done online, tying you down to the speed of your internet connection to get work done? Well no more!
Spam comments are a nuisance. I’ve just spent about half an hour going through comments posted to this site in the last week or so, most of which it has to be said were rubbish! However, there are better ways of dealing with this build up of bot-posted baloney (or is it balogna – tangent) automatically.

Incredibly useful article for anyone using wordpress 2.8. A mini-review rolled into a brief collections of howtos.
