WordPress update to 2.0.2

Friday, April 7th, 2006

I had undertaken an update earlier this evening to a “sister site” here…. the onlineradiotv.com site had started out as a wordpress 2.0 site and I thought it would likely be the easiest to upgrade to 2.0.2 which is a security upgrade and therefore high priority, but I’m just now getting to it. I know [...]

April Fools…. not observed here….

Friday, April 7th, 2006

I remember a time when I enjoyed April Fools – when I was real little I’d try the outlandish “there’s a tiger in the front yard” kind of stuff, later, perhaps more subtle…. but I’ve NEVER been a fan of the idea of a news reporting organization putting out an april fools story. Every day [...]

Google Sitemaps continue to improve

Friday, April 7th, 2006

I’ve noticed that the information in Google Sitemaps continues to improve. For instance in the list of search terms and the average top position which is something that previously was quite tedious to figure out (search and then click until you find your page referenced…) It also gives content analysis of your site, and analysis [...]

Google Big daddy update….

Friday, April 7th, 2006

I’m greatly delayed in writing about this, but Google underwent a huge search engine change. I want to say the switch over occured around February 1st or second. I had been seeing 1000 or so visits a day prior to the change (well to be fair 600-1200 a day…) and after the change now see [...]

Google Base stretching it’s wings….

Friday, April 7th, 2006

There have been a couple of interesting articles lately about the evolution of Google Base. When it came out, I remember thinking I would have to spend some time thinking about how to use it. It has interesting potential to be a VERY powerful tool for Google in their competition for web traffic. One article [...]

How to escape from the deluge of credit card offers…..

Friday, April 7th, 2006

This isn’t necessarily tech related, but modern life related I guess. I can’t count how many credit card offers we receive in the mail each month. I have visions of a few acres of forest land somewhere being tagged with our name and the subtitle… “credit card offers”. I’ve never followed up on an unsolicited [...]

Peltor RaceTunes AM/FM Stereo radio and hearing protector

Friday, April 7th, 2006

For some time I’ve wanted a good pair of noise reducing headphones for “mowing season”. Ideally they’d have am/fm stereo so I could listen to the radio (or something broadcast from my little FM transmitter…) REALLY ideally, they’d have a way I could patch something directly into them. I’ve found such a thing from Amazon.com [...]

So many things so little time….

Friday, April 7th, 2006

I feel like I’ve done this article so many times in the past…. there are so many things I’m hoping to post and time seems to evaporate before my very eyes. This afternoon I hope to be posting a few things that have been on that list. I also have a few other projects that [...]

Adwords Referrals from Google

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

I noticed something yesterday when I had logged into the adsense page at Google. They’ve now added “adwords” referrals. For those that don’t know – Adwords is the name for the program where you can advertise your site on google, or through their advertising network (such as this site for example.) The deal seems to [...]
