House Keeping: MyBlogLog, Pop Ups and Advertising

  1. Do you know if Zanox send over a German Dude to the Summit? Do you need a translator hehe.

    You leave Monday night? The Summit starts Sunday and ends Tuesday (with a party on Tuesday evening I did not know about ). I will fly in on Saturday and go to the Affiliate Dinner organized by Brook. Are you coming to that one btw?

    I guess I have to disgust you then. I use IE and sometime Firefox. Don’t ask me why, must be the M-Chip that came with MS.DOS 5.0. Microsoft suc.. autsch.. damn it. πŸ™‚

    You still have to visit the sites to read the full posts most of the time. You don’t just read the snippets, don’t you. Why most blogs don’t send the full story via RSS is a topic of its own.

  2. There will be some Germans, but hopefully they know my redneck/appalachian version of English as well. If you were on Twitter, I could let you know if I need some translating help… get on Twitter!

    I have to fly out on Monday b/c I have to teach a class on Tues morning. Normally, I’d give the college kids a break (they need more sleep, right?), but we’re in the middle of something heavy and I can’t miss.

    Yes, I will be at the dinner thanks to my Patron Saint.

    I normally thumb my nose at those sites with the partial feeds. There’s nothing I hate more. It’s my decision of how much I want to read, not yours (you in the meta sense, not you, Carsten). So don’t cut me off when I’m paying attention to your ideas. Scrapers are still going to grab your content, so stop thinking that doing a partial feed is helping anything. It’s hurting you in the long run.

  3. OOps.. typo.. now is most of the previous comment hidden HTML πŸ™‚

    it makes it a bit harder.. okay reason no 1. was that…now reason no 2. and 3. and so on πŸ™‚

    Twitter, mhh… use it in combination with Plazes.com and the taxpayers could safe a lot of money that is going to be spent on the IDs with chip. Btw. I do not have a blackberry and typing with a regular cell phone sucks big time. … and I am glad that I don’t have one. πŸ™‚

  4. At least Twitter is voluntary, so you have the choice. The RFID chips in our new passports and eventually in our “gov’t ID’s” are not voluntary in terms of the information they share.

    At least the RFID in the new passports can easily be hacked… with a hammer πŸ™‚

  5. > I’m thinking about taking down the MyBlogLog widget.

    I thought about putting it up, but didn’t want to grant the real estate. I just use them for the instant info on who is clicking what.

  6. Hmmm. I just put up the MyBlogLog widget… As per usual, I’m a day late and a dollar short for being cool.

    Looking forward to the Summit. I’ll buy all of you a beer or three if I bump into you…

  7. Kevin-

    Yep, there’s definitely a memory leak. I’ve played with it on my wife’s partitioned laptop and besides being a crappy rip of FF, the memory usage is worse than FF 1.5 ever was.

    Sad that most people think tabbed browsing is a “revolution’!
