Hedgehog Visitor

As far as I can tell I still have at least one Hedgehog visiting every night.

Uploading to Flickr and YouTube has become a real pain for a while now with even a small file taking hours to transfer to YouTube. Not just on the odd occasions as may be expected but every time I try to use them. I wonder whether others have been having similar difficulties. Uploading to Photobucket still works as normal.

Yesterday I altered my settings for comments. At the moment it will not accept comments from anonymous writers. This has been forced on me by an influx of anonymous spam comments which are purporting to advertise payday loans. First there was just the odd one which I could delete but the numbers have been increasing daily. Although each is slightly different they all seem to point to linefeed dot org

A Whois search for linefeed dot org reveals the following information:

  1. These spammers are a real pain John. Not sure what they get out of it, because all their 'messages' get deleted anyway.
    I've not had any problems myself with YT uploads.

    1. Found one solution Keith - I have to use Firefox in Private Browsing mode.

  2. Hi John,
    I have been having a lot of problems from the same spammer by the sounds of things! The other day I received over 80 `comments`, all of which were deleted, but a tremendous pain in the bum!
    On a lighter note, I am still getting up to 3 Hedgehog visitors per night, which is a great sight to see them getting fat on mealworms! :)
    Follow me at HEDGELAND TALES

    1. The hogs certainly love their mealworms John. Great that you have several visiting.

  3. Glad to know you are still being visited by the hog/s. I am on the iPad and just have an empty space where I assume a video is, due I assume to the problems you mention. Will prob have laptop on later and look again then!

    Sorry to read you have the spam problem, how very annoying!! Thankfully, I have been lucky so far. Since dropping word verification, sometime ago, I have the 'registered users only' option enabled.

  4. I think the problem with the video is that Photobucket uses flash but YouTube uses HTML5 and flash is a no - no on Apple i products.

    Yes, I've gone to registered users only for a while.

  5. That's very cute. Adopt it and for sure you will enjoy it. Hedgehogs are lovable and fun to watch.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
