Links Popping Up in Google Suggest

Posted on May 28, 2009

Ok, so I’m an awful blogger. I’m making myself write a post no matter how uninteresting it is just to get myself kick started. < - great example of how not to keep your readers interested in reading on. I'm a big fan of the suggestions that pop up in most search engines when you start typing. It's a great feature that should have been implemented a few years ago. Surprisingly, Google was especially slow to adopt search suggestions, but as usual they did it a little better (by including an estimated search count, etc).

Firefox Woes – WordPress Uploader

Posted on Oct 20, 2008

For a few months now (I think since Firefox 2) I’ve had issues using the WordPress image uploader in Firefox.  To this point I’ve been a very infrequent blogger and most of my other sites on WordPress don’t have many images so I just used FTP when needed.  A few new prodjects with heavy image use required me to finally find a fix.  For those of you that haven’t already found a solution I thought I’d pass on what worked for me (I had to try quite a few “fixes”).  Check out this post.
