A New Server

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 via moblogmods 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.

spambots !

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". Cheers! Spiderbaby

Happy New Year for moblog!

Great news everyone - moblog has a new server, which should be more powerful, faster, and allow for some fairly major software changes too. When will it start to function? No promises here - but Mat says... "We are working hard to get everything set up, tested and running right. Then when all tasks are completed and the new server goes live, it should be barely noticeable from a user's perspective, (perhaps a few minutes of downtime) except everything will be faster!" So it's a Happy New Year to you and a Happy New Year to moblog.

World Cup 2010 South Africa is here

After all the build up and hype, the drama of the squads being announced and the injuries, there's been no means of escaping the build up to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa (certainly in the UK). We'd love to see how you'll be spending the next six weeks. Will it be flags, parties and avid watching of every game? Going in to hibernation until it's all over? Or maybe somewhere in between? Whichever team you will be supporting this summer and if your posts are football related, be sure to tag your photos with your pictures "wc2010", or "World Cup".

Show us your eggs

Over here in the UK it's hard to believe we've hit British Summer Time already. However there are some signs that spring is in the air and we've been enjoying seeing some photos of the crocuses coming out and the snow (mostly!) melting away.

With Easter approaching we'd love to see some more photographs of happenings in your area - are the lambs out yet? How will you be spending your weekend? Whether it's a walk in the countryside or a lazy one at home, we're keen to see what's going on. If nothing else we'd like to see the size of your eggs!

Happy Springtime

from Moblog.
