Taiga'd

Taiga arrived.  Today.  When I was at the office.

And the delivery guy got confused because when he knocked on my door, my neighbours answered their door.

So I had to leave work early to head home and sort it out, which means I'll be working late tonight to catch up.  But that's fine.  Taiga is safe in the spare room and I'll get her set up in the next day or two.

Update: 32GB extra RAM and 5TB external drive arrived today.  The Blu-Ray drive is back-ordered, but that's not urgent; I have on in my Windows PC.

Now I'm all set except for software, and that I can buy online as needed.

1 You can't just have it delivered to work?

2 BTW, that 192-168-1-1.co spammer is still around, having made a comment at Brickmuppet's this morning: http://brickmuppet.mee.nu/meanwhile_in_worcester

3 I mostly work from home, only going into the office one or two days a week.  And this is the 27" iMac, so it's pretty unwieldy to be taking home on the train.

Also, bum.  Purged the guy again.

4 Could you please tell me what name to use in my ban list to banish this guy? (He just spammed me again.)

5 I just got two of them in a row today, with different names.  I junked them so they're still there for you to dissect.

6 Banning will not help as long as he's free to register anew.

7 In my control page, the "spam" control link on the left doesn't link to anything. If I click it I get my main page. (It occurred to me that I could stop that spammer by putting the URL he's pimping in as a block phrase.)

8 Yeah, I'll need to update the registration process, and possibly hard-ban his IPs.

9 Unfortunately, sometimes the only solution is the firewall.

10 Or laser-guided munitions.

11 Ah, he has a new domain.  ZAP!

12 He's working awfully hard for zero return.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
