I had seen lots of bloggers mentioning the Bad Behavior plugin for WordPress, which intends to stop blog spammers from ever reaching your site…nevermind being able to post comment spam.
So I have installed it on this blog to check it out and see how it does. Since it has gotten great reviews, I have completely deleted my WordPress blacklist to see how effective this plugin is.
Assuming it ends up working well, I will install the Bad Behavior Stats plugin to show my visitors that this blog is spam free
Folks, do not go to the Boston Dirt Dogs web site ever again. So sad and pathetic.
The worst part? The Boston Globe doesn’t care.
Got a pleasant surprise when I arrived home tonight and the Belkin 7-port USB 2.0 hub that I ordered on Monday had arrived.
The coolest thing about it is that there are 5-ports on the back (coincidently, just enough for all of my devices: printer, scanner, external hard drive, iPod, camera) and then two ports accessable from the top of the device (perfect for flash drives and anything temporary). What a stellar design. Bonus points for it matching my external hard drive (a Seagate 120 GB) and for the most part my computer.
This replaces the 4-port USB 2.0 hub that I used before today.
Looks like we will be getting a sneak peak of Mozilla Lightning in the near future!
iPodlounge has an article titled iTunes 5: Our Top Ten Requests.
I would add 3 simple requests to theirs:
- Fix Sound Check: Use ReplayGain, which is far more accurate in making every song’s volume stay the same and does not degrade the sound quality. Also add an album mode.
- Gapless support: Make it enjoyable to listen to an entire Pink Floyd album without hearing a 1/2 second gap between tracks.
- Toast pop-up: I would love it if a little Toast window popped up in the bottom right-hand corner when a song changes, complete with artist, song, album, and the album artwork.
That is all I ask. Please Apple, do this for my sanity!
