Google PR and indexing

Google seems to have changed its listing criteria yet again. One possible theory being posited for this latest sea change is the growth of sales in text links. Whether this is true or not is really a matter of making an educated guess, rather than anything based on concrete facts. Why so? Well Google don’t […]

Apache 2 configuration

This site is now running on Apache 2 on Debian. The last time I used apache 2 it was an early release and the configuration structure and methods was almost identical to the 1.* series.

Mandrake 9.1 on the lap

As I missed running linux on my desktop I finally decided this evening to take the plunge and load it onto my laptop. Hardware used: – Dell Latitude – PIII 850 My experience with this installation was horrendous, but that was more the laptop’s fault than Mandrake’s. I had been given copies of the Mandrake […]

The joys of email filtering

Once you start offering email filtering people expect it to work 100% of the time and are very unforgiving when they get one or two emails that they shouldn’t have. The biggest issue facing anybody offering professional email filtering is balancing the “spam” vs. “ham” (desired email). A lot of email marketing, albeit desired by […]
