  • Activity levels are basically unchanged. However
  • There was one day of very high activity from one IP in Israel which appears to be a benign “site scraping”, where for reasons unknown an automaton was used to download every page and resource on the web site. This site is known to Project Honeypot, which believes the activity is benign (someone building a massive index, etc).
  • There were a total of 38 downloads of PDF and .doc files.

Changes Done, and Work In Progress

  • Other than minor maintenance, no work has been done on the web site this month.

Summary

The web site is stable. The activity of 82.80.249.155 will be monitored but this does not appear to be a problem.

Author: Will

I was born at a very young age but I am older than that now. As a young man I drove half a million miles in Boston taxis. Then I moved to Oregon and developed two careers as an RN over 28 years: the first as a clinical nurse mostly in ICU, then later in Nursing Service Administration as an Informatics RN (but before that term was coined). In between RN work, I picked up an ADSc Business Computer Programming and provided PC network installation, maintenance and repair for 10 years. I eased into retirement beginning in 2003 and was fully retired in 2010. But I have continued to develop and manage websites and my skills are current with HTTP/CSS, PHP, Apache, SQL, etc. I have a strong preference for Ubuntu Linux boxes and Dokuwiki websites. I have a strong dislike of WordPress, which, although it is technically very well done, has created one of the worst cesspool ecosystems I have ever encountered. Still it is sometimes the best tool for the job, more is the pity. I have followed pagan paths for 50 years and I have about 3 yards of bookshelves devoted to pagan thought and practice. I am a perfectly eclectic technopagan heavily influenced by Victor Anderson's Feri practice but comfortable with Gardner derivatives, Zennist ways, and totemic/shamanist practices. I have recently been made the Steward of the Lyceum Of Trees. So I am Will Steward, Steward. Make of that whatever you will.
