Apparently stenography and cheese do not mix

We just completed a move of the web site to a new much more capable server.

The upgrade included a software update and and some minor enhancements. Most significant of the enhancements is spam protection.

Basically the post comments had become property of the blog spammers and we couldn’t see the forest for the trees (there was a *lot* of spam in the comments database). So we deleted all the spam and enabled some new stuff to keep the spammers out.

The spam blocking is so good, in fact, that we’re going to see if we can just turn off comment moderation altogether. That may not last, but we’ll see.

Point being: if you’re one of those who’s inclined to post comments but hasn’t been because it’s been busted here, please give it another try. It’d be nice if we could sort of re-claim the discussion here.

    State and Fed agencies have agreed to truck 30 million juvenile salmon from hatcheries including the Coleman hatchery to holding areas in the lower part of the delta and S.F bay area.

    This is the largest effort ever in trucking the Salmon in Ca history whereby their 2016 returning numbers will have a much better survival rate considering the dry year with low water levels the smolts would other wise have faced.

    State and federal fishery agencies are hauling the salmon from (5)hatcheries, 450,000 hauled this week from the Coleman hatchery which is great news for fishermen concerned about the projected 2016 returning year class.
