    Computer Sunday; Study Monday

    Had two completely antithetical days yesterday and today (actually, that would be day before and yesterday, given the time of this post). Awoke early Sunday morning and went for the 8.30am mass for which we were singing. I haven’t awoken at 7.30am since a long long time and as a result I ended up feeling extremely drowsy during mass and a good portion of the morning after that. Would normally have hit the bed for a while, but

    Would you like to Subscribe to Comments?

    Update: STC is now active on the blog. There has been a few improments in the code since I last used it. Just one point I noticed is that the code for the “Subscribe without Commenting” form is not XHTML 1.1 complaint. For that you need to add <fieldset style="border:none"> after the opening form tag and a </fieldset> before the closing form tag. —————————— Thilak suggested that I get hold of the Subscribe to Comments plugin. But, I am reluctant because of only one reason. I had the plugin running on this blog a few months back for a good deal of time. However, I realized that I was getting…

    AntiLeech – Protect your blog from sploggers

    I have faced a good deal of problem with sploggers. While I had one who just stole every post of mine, another kept picking up all my posts because it had the content “copyright”! And that is because my feeds include a copyright notice. Owen has released a new plugin title AntiLeech which helps fight sploggers. AntiLeech does not prevent the splogger bots from accessing your site. It produces a fake set of content especially for them that includes links back to your site (and mine, too, ok?) and sends it only to them. When they steal this content, it appears online just like normal, except now you’ve turned the…

    To Gravatar or not to?

    I have been using Gravatars in the comments of my posts for more than a year now. I have been using the Official Gravatar Plugin because no other plugin has worked suitably for me. The problem with the official plugin is that it pulls the gravatar from the main site during every load. This consumes a good amount of their bandwidth and also slows down the loading on this site. I’m now wondering if I should continue using Gravatars on this blog or not? Any thoughts about it? Are you using Gravatars on your blog? Would you like to see them here?

    Now PR5

    It has been a while since I had a PR5 rank on my blog. After I removed the WWW, my pagerank plummeted. The rank dropped to 3 and rose to 4 after a while. With the latest pagerank update that took place yesterday, I noticed that the rank had jumped up to 5. 🙂 I’m glad that my Donate page is still PR6, while the Donations Received page is a PR5. If you would like a link to your site on that page, you know what to do 😉
