Today marks the one year anniversary of successfully hardening the phpBB2 forum against SPAM bots. Not that they've stopped trying. There's been a total of at least 6,451 (and counting) unsuccessful attempts to date. It just goes to show that script kiddies are not real programmers. Neither are they too clever. But they are persistent.

Now that a stable version of phpBB3 has been released, I do plan on upgrading eventually. Working in the MODs will take some time, and with Spring on the way I'll have to get busy soon if I'm going to get to it before outdoor activities call me away from my computer. Hopefully the new version will prove to be just as SPAM free as the old.
