The Aardvark no longer speaks

The Aardvark no longer speaks.

On 24 November 2008, a spammer seized the comment function and posted over 4000 spam comments on this site.
In the process, or during my attempts to clear up the mess, my Movable Type installation broke.

As my anti-spam precautions are obviously no longer effective and spammers have in the past succeeded in completely taking down the server during their spam attacks, the only way to continue my weblog would be to upgrade to a new version of Movable Type, which also requires a complete redesign of my templates and some serious data migration of all my blog content to an entirely different database format.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to do that at the moment.

Therefore I am taking The Aardvark Speaks offline, effective immediately.

I know this is kind of sudden, but in this case things are beyond my control.

Thanks to everyone who visited this weblog during the past five years; I hope you enjoyed the show.

Peace,
Horst
