I'm still getting small amounts of comment spam. It's always on one of two posts for some reason (no idea why). I've taken action though! If you check out the comments page you'll notice that I've added a reCATCHPA widget to the form. Now to make a comment you need to successfully solve a CATCHPA first. The neat thing about reCATCHPA is that you actually do two: the first is a real CATCHPA and the other is some scanned text from a book that wasn't recognized by OCR. So you're actually helping digitize books by making comments on my site. Go you!
In other news, I'm slowly making progress on my Italy trip journal. If you check out the photos page you can take a look at four of my photos from Rome that I really like.
