Google images and the Alfa Romeo 159 :)

Monday, April 24th, 2006

Last year I posted about a (possible) new company car, the Alfa Romeo 159. I also added a photo taken in the showroom (still a beautiful car!).

When it became clear that it was not possible to have the 159 as a company car, I posted the same photo nicely striked-through in RED. Both photos have been indexed by Google images and especially the last one generates more and more traffic to my site. Actually quite understandable if you do the search yourself (alfa romeo 159)…a page of great pictures of the 159 and then you see this one photo that is striked through, he he he 🙂 🙂

I’m still a huge fan of the car!!

Comment SPAM (2)

Well, that was a nice idea, enabling registration…there is no such option in Pivot(!!), at least not that I found!

Major BUMMER!! Guess I have to find another way to get rid of spammers, hmm…nice…:(

Comment SPAM

Monday, April 24th, 2006

This blog is hit by comment spam quite regularly, but things seem to go worse week after week…I remember switching off the comments section on the homepage, but it didn't stop spammers to stil hit the comments 🙁

Last measure (one I actually didn't want to take) is to enable registration before any comment can be made…yeah it sucks, but I guess there is no other way, for now.

'Luckily' there are not that many comments to my posts anyway, so hardly anyone will notice 🙂

Windows Vista, you wish(ta)!

Monday, April 24th, 2006

I’m reading through an interesting article explaining why Microsoft’s Windows Vista will be a great disappointment when (if?) introduced coming year, especially if one considers the media-hype that MS has created throughout the last years around Longhorn (the codename previously used for Vista)…’Where Vista Fails‘.

Am just halfway the article now and every line makes me an even happier Mac user then I already am! 🙂

Evangelize your Blog

Monday, April 24th, 2006

Starting a blog? Here’s the How-To…well, if you want to make your living out of it, at least so it seems when reading through the tips and tricks of ‘How to Evangelize a Blog’ by Guy Kawasaki…not all blogs meet his high standards though, including mine 🙂
