Link: you are what you code

March 31, 2007

From Robert Brewer comes You are what you code, which has given me something to think about. I'll quote the opening:

Hey, you. Do you realize what you're writing? The long-standing IT joke is that you always end up coding your own job out of existence. But what are you coding yourself into?

(From Planet Python, where his blog is aggregated.)

Update: I apologize to my readers for putting a link here that doesn't work without an extra, annoying step (see the comment).

Update2: the situation has now been fixed.

The direct link to produces the following. It looks rather pointless to me as implemented:

403 Forbidden Please stop referer spam.

We have identified that you have been refered here by a known or supposed spammer.

If you feel this is an error, please bypass this message and leave us a comment about the error. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

If you are actually doing referer spam, please note that this website/b2evolution no longer records and publishes referers. Not even legitimate ones! While we understand it was fun for you guys while it lasted, please understand our servers cannot take the load of all this cumulated spam any longer... Thank you.

Also, please note that comment/trackback submitted URLs will be tagged with rel="nofollow" in order to be ignored by search engines.

I believe that has now fixed this, although it is possible that the fix will wear off in the future.
