The Bots Have Gone

The Bots have finally gone!
A few days of inactivity on the site led to their demise.
I've gone from a couple of thousand hits a day to a couple of hundred (if I'm lucky) and do you know what, I'm pretty happy  about it.
It means I know I'm dealing with real people. A community who take the time and effort to read and sometimes comment about my posts. I know you have been there all along but it is reassuring to know that it is just us again.

All of which puts me in mind of Internet Song from Pii2 by Stephen Solo .His second album recorded directly on to an I-phone and available on a USB cassette from Last Night From Glasgow
It's the future, or  probably even the present.

Stephen Solo - Internet Song


  1. Interesting to know as I too have had a flurry of several hundred annoying "comments" per day from bots landing in spam, and nearly getting through - Have had to delete the post they seemed to be targeting so seems to have been curtailed now. As you say, nice to know there is a community here full of real people although easy to forget there is a big old cyberspace as well.

    That is an a scarily accurate song - not about the future, the present!

  2. I-phone and available on a USB cassette? I have never heard of a USB cassette, and having just searched on the internet is it a USB stick inside the shell of a cassette? Not that I'll be buying this song, I'm afraid, it was bloody annoying.

    1. That's pretty much exactly what it is - a bit of a gimmick.
      The song is clever but I can see where you are coming from

  3. I can’t even get bots to visit. Ha!
