blog name handling at blo.gs

so some idiot is pinging blo.gs to change the name for various other blogs in the portuguese weblogging community (which just loves to slurp up my bandwidth — but that’s a different story).

i guess i’ll have to stop trusting the name being passed on pings, and start sniffing them out of the feeds and html pages (and ignoring changes that come via weblogs.com, which is subject to the same abuse).

maybe this will finally push me over the edge into rewriting the ping-handling code in python so i can more easily re-use mark pilgrim’s feed finder.

this is all the extra stuff i have to purge. i’m not sure what i’ll do with all the space that will free up. i’ve finally done something with all the stuff i’m keeping. (almost) nothing more piled on my kitchen table or stacked in my bedroom.
