Well it has certainly been a while. My site has been neglected for far too long. It was running Drupal 5.9 (!!) for about a year now. So tonight I finally upgraded to Drupal 6 and installed some new spam fighting techniques and well as gave it a new theme.
The entire process took me about 2 hours. I made sure and took cautionary steps such as backing up my site in case anything should go wrong.
