We must say it is great to have moblog zipping along and some old friends returning as well as new bloggers.

Just to keep you up to date...

Moblog has four new and one not quite so new adminstrators.

Swamprose some time back wanted to 'kill' spam etc and moved to admin' status to be able to do the task. She was joined earlier this year by Crickson, Spiderbaby, Taniwha and Viv, who all now help do the moblog housekeeping!

Mat did mention it in his news post but thought it might be a good idea to draw attention to the new ip address,

also the only email address working just now is and should be working sometime soon

In time for Christmas... moblog's new server is up and running. Very fast!

(viewed 4108 times)
Moblog has a new server. We've upgraded both our hardware and our software. More up to date versions of everything should mean a much faster and more stable site. Some things may be a little wobbly for the next couple of days, but we're working hard to make sure it's all OK. If you spot any issues, please let someone know here or via the contact page.

If you have a custom domain, you'll need to update your records. The new IP address is

For the technically inclined, the specs are - Quad Core Intel Xeon 2.53Ghz CPU, 8GB RAM, 4 x 500GB disks in a RAID array. Debian Linux operating system.

Thanks Mat

Please adjust your settings!

Dear mobloggers,

We seem to be under a weird yet sustained attack at the moment from spambots adding random inappropriate comments to posts all over the site. We are doing our best to remove them as they come up but it would really help if you could adjust your privacy settings so that only registered users can comment on your blogs. This will help keep your lovely blogs nice and spam-free until we can find a better way to fight back.

To change your settings, go to "Profile" > "Privacy" > "Who can comment on my blog" switch to "registered users only".

speed....or a flash in the pan?

Don't get too excited is ongoing.

There may be peaks and troughs in the site's performance while the work is being carried out.

The server move should be in early February if all goes to plan.
