Rebooting My RSS Reader

Gnorb Web Tools 15 Comments

I’m starting to feel “not-so-fresh,” you know? Starting to feel the bloat, starting to feel the… well, you know. It’s that time of the month. Or year. Whatever. Time for me to update my RSS reader, eliminate some of the feeds gathering unread posts like dust on my monitor and add in some new, fresh bits. Mostly eliminating old feeds, …

Introducing Microfiction

I haven’t talked about this here because, frankly, I didn’t know how far it would go. In fact, I’m still not sure how far it will, although it seems to be taking me in a rather desirable direction.

Odds and Ends: Life, Rebooted

Gnorb Life, Random, Site Updates, Web Tools 2 Comments

The title doesn’t really mean anything. I haven’t rebooted my life, though I have rebooted my eating patterns. (It comforts me little to know that if I were a caveman I would have a genetic advantage over my skinnier counterparts.) “Life, Rebooted” sounds kind of cool, though, in a “oh hey, Windows crashed again!” sort of way. Anyway, here are …

Gnorb Web Tools 0 Comments

I just caught this incredible story from Entrepreneur’s Journey: a guy down in Brisbane details how he grew his AdSense revenue from US$10 per week using a group of sites to over $120 per day.

The following clip is from a post featured in the Weblog Tools Collection, dealing with the lack of attribution and problem of plaigiarism on the Web today. It’s something any even remotely successful site has to deal with at some point. As for me, I’ve only had to deal with it a couple of times, but most of the time …

Gnorb Web Tools 0 Comments

Installing software can sometimes be fun, especially when it’s easy. In the short time after my move, I’ve started to play around with other software for possible later uses. You can check out what I’ve just now started to work with at the following locations Gnorb.NET, Drupal Gnorb.NET Forums, using SMF Gnorb.NET, Xoops Gnorb.NET, Joomla!

Gnorb SEO, Web Tools 0 Comments

Ok, 2005 tapped me on the shoulder last night and told me to check out the Google Analytics page. Basically, if you own a site, Google Analytics will help you see where your traffic is coming from, where it’s leaving from, and will generally help you optimize your site for your audience.

Gnorb Web Tools 0 Comments

(I would have posted this only on my MySpace blog, but it seems MySpace doesn’t take kindly to Linux systems, even those running Firefox. If you’re here from there, my apologies for not making it easier on you. Trust me, I tried. I’ll be adding this to over there later.) Don’t you just hate it when someone adds a pic …
