    Is there going to be a link to the presentation - I wasn't able to make it last night but I'm definitely interested in seeing the presentation if it's available.

    I'm looking for someone who knows Apache, and how to edit an .htcaccess file. Mainly someone who can edit the .htaccess file of a WP blog, and add in the lines to block the bots listed here:

    and make a video showing how to do this. This is for a business friend of mine, and from what I can tell, it seems like you would want to add a line of code to stop a bot, save it, and then check to make sure you didn't screw up the .htaccess file. He needs a video showing what code editor to use, and how to get this done in the simplest way possible. I think he is willing to pay $50 for a video of someone showing how to do this. If you are interested please msg me at NormanMejia2336 a&t yahoo dut com (you can put a reply to this thread with contact info, but do not reply to my page on - that is set to go to a different email address)
