Attack of the spam-bots

Lately visitors may have noticed a large amount of spam hitting both .net and .com. Today I took a little time out of my studies and did a lot of site maintenance. Fixed some minor security holes that may have attracted the spam-bots. I also updated the XHTML to the main layout of the site due to the release of Internet Explorer 7. Now it views perfectly fine wherever you browse on the site! The updates do not affect Firefox 1.5 – 2.0 or Internet Explorer 6.0 or lower because their parsing of XHTML is different (and possibly more effective than 7.0 in my honest opinion).

As soon as I find the time I will continue to update the forum to the newest version, but with this semester being a lot more difficult than anticipated it’ll take me a while to finalize the design to the forum. I could just install the newest version of the site, and leave it without a custom theme, but I don’t think members would like that much. This is one of the coolest Jurassic Park sites around. The forum must mesh with the site in some way, shape or form. Anyway, if anyone is skilled in modifying Invision Boards drop me an email (don’t forget to change the “[at]” to “@”). I’d like to get it done before the year 2010.
