The first thing you should do with a Drupal website is close the door. Administer > User Management > User Settings > Only site administrators can create new user accounts.
I waited three days and found my site had hundreds of "users" who had posted hundreds of comments. Google searches our servers every hour or so and any new site will be found by spammers within an hour or two.
The end of the Epoch in the Mayan calendar, the Winter Solstice in our current calendar but not the "first day of winter" in any proper calendar. The confusion results from the innumeracy of confounding period and point values. Events are points and seasons are periods.
That means we are but a scant 6 weeks from Imbolc or the First Day of Spring.The pagans and astrologers get this right and the Christians make amends by celebrating Candlemas the very next day. Conveniently, Candlemas is 40 days after Christmas just in time for the presentation of the baby Jesus at the temple.
I put together a "greener" server. AMD A350, WD "Green" hard drive lots of RAM and little else, installed Ubuntu Server 12.04LTS and somewhat willy nilly checked the box use LVM,(Logical Volume Manager). Several software upgrades went smoothly but then I hit one that brought on feelings of dread. I maintain servers in Galax and Fairfax and this one was in the other place so I postponed the reboot until I could be on-site. In the meantime I had a heart attack and a bypass.
I wasn't coming up with a suitable replacement so I took the downhill path and put up Drupal 6.
