WordPress Google Maps integration

I wrote a plugin for MT called MTYahoomaps. After a little research, looks like Avi Alkalay made a Google maps plugin for WordPress. The implementation is very straight forward and well documented. I should have a lot of fun playing with it and checking out the PHP code.

ABC News Goes for the tough issues…

Congress is investigating possible misleading advertisements for Lipitor, so what does ABC News lead with?

WordPress Update

Wordpress ButtonsWell, this is a big improvement. My server still gets hammered with people/bots/etc. still trying to SPAM my blog with all sorts of crap, but It’s not having an affect on my server.

In the past, the server CPU would get pegged with all the Spammers attempting to hit it. In that regard, WordPress isn’t breaking a sweat. That’s a vast improvement as the server would become unresponsive and the PERL CGI programs would effectivly kill the machine.

As for posting and administration, IMO, this is a LOT easier than MT was. I’m still using captcha’s for comments, but I may turn that off.
