It seems as though something in the latest round of Windows Updates has caused the IE6 small GIF bug to resurface. It's frustrating, to say the least – and it best be fixed within SP2. I'm about five minutes away from downloading and installing the latest RC, just to see if I can get back to my regular surfing habits. Productivity grinds to a halt every time you have to right-click a non-rendered image just to get it to show up inside your browser window. Or should I abandon all hope and move to Mozilla?
This is a blog about technology, so… darnit. I'm making it completely official. My whole life seems to revolve around all things digital, anyway. Surprised?
Been messing with zFeeder today. For the most part, I'm impressed with its usability. Through the script, I finally got a nice output page to help us fill “empty” ad slots. I'm not sure if the refresh attribute is set properly, however. Re-launched our Coupons and Deals service, too (with a completely new set of feed URLs). AdSense seems to believe that Lockergnome has nothing but RSS to share. Not bad, considering Bill Gates gave the idea of desktop syndication a major nod today. That's my dream, ya know? A Gnome on every desktop.
Beef Jerky = Awesome Dinner
I turned on the new (beta) option for Google AdSense to display graphics when they're available. I figured, why not – especially if they're still targeted to the neighboring content? Check out today's Windows Fanatics – you should see a skyscraper advertisement for the Nightmare Before Christmas collectables. I don't know who Bill Bam is, but I'd like to thank him for his support.
Someone asked me today if I noticed a reduction in comments since I moved to this new system. My answer is: kinda, but not really. I'm allowing Anonymous (non-registered) users to post their thoughts, and I've turned on auto-trackback discovery. If someone has something THAT important to say, they'll say it. Otherwise, they'll just spam an MT account somewhere else. Now watch – this entry'll get NO comments.
