Blog Spam and more

November 30th, 2011 Comments off

Hey ITM students! YOU CAN POST COMMENTS ON OUR BLOG! I am really, really weary of moderating comments and never having any real comments, although many of the spam comments I eliminate are rather amusing and maybe I’ll strip out the spammy links and let some go through just for giggles. ALSO, there is a mobile version of the blog for your Android or iPhone, and there is an RSS feed to add it to your iGoogle or Yahoo homepage. You can also suggest items to post to the blog—or you can even sign up to be a student blogger—by emailing Professor Trygstad.  So get with it…read, comment, contribute.
