WordPress advances

WordPress (which powers this site) announced a couple of major advances this week: Version 1.0 of WordPress MU – a multi-user version of Word Press, and bbPress – a forum software that integrates with WordPress.

Adblock vs Google Adsense

One of my favorite things about Firefox is the Adblock/Filterset.G extension combination. I don’t mind some ads, but when most of the pages I go to have more whirling and spinning that a county fair, it makes me motion-sick! The 1-2 punch of Adblock and Filterset.G knock ads out, and keeps them out (without you […]

Datacenter upgrade

It looks like a very handy (and free) way to have a portable test server for web developmentwhatever you need a portable web server for. For those Wanting the full AMP treatment, WOS (web server on a stick) […]

Free VMWare Server?

CNet predicted that “VMware… will begin giving away one of its key products for free”, and it seems to be true! The “key product” is GSX server – their “lower end” software that runs on a Windows or Linux server. The re-branded product is now sinply called VMWare Server, and is completely free. My guess […] – Connecting Wikipedia articles with their locations cleverly lets you link Wikipedia articles to Google Maps data.
