User account fail

I had someone e-mail me recently asking how they would go about creating an account to allow them to comment. I had forgotten until I looked into it that I'd turned off do-it-yourself account creation. The spambots seemed to be abusing it, I recalled, but I couldn't remember the details. So I re-enabled it and went about my business.

I looked into it some more and then I disabled it again. Spam accounts outnumber real user accounts by about 400 to 1. I need to look into the current Drupal software tools and modules and see what I can do about that.

In the meantime, if you truly want a user account, shoot me an e-mail. If you just forgot your password, there's a link on the login box/page.

I will try to write more soon, but my monitor is on a different floor from my computer right now, where it's fulfilling its actual primary duty as a television. Specifically, it is allowing my wife and I to watch Supernatural season 3 together from the couch--an option not available in front of my computer.
