There are rumors that a possible verison of Ubuntu is being developed by Google for release, but that is about all that is known about it.
More details here @ the Register
Edit: Then they denied it here
Poor google, there seems to be so many rumors flying around about them, and by the looks of it, share price is dropping too
Yesterday i posted a useful tip on how to view peoples comments on myspace that arn’t visable on there profile because they are hidden by that user using html and css. I did this for a friend who isn’t particually tech-savy, so she could find out what people had been saying about someone.
Its not a hack, the information is there and readily available to read just that the link is not so the address has to be typed in, all i did was inform people of that address.
After a few other people told me they found this useful i though i would upload it to digg.com to make this information useful to others.
At time of writing my post has had 628 diggs, it made it onto the front page of digg.com sometime this morning before i woke up. By 9am the digg effect had set in.
As the graph shows the hits just kept coming! at last count they are at 11665 today, it makes all my other days hits look none existant!
And my post has made it onto the “Top Posts from around Wordpress.com” and my blogis number 2 on the “Top Wordpress Blogs today“, and number 3 on the “Fastest Growing Wordpress.com Blogs“.
My personal website has seen 60 people that it doesnt usually as well.
I got a few flames and harsh comments, but nothing unexpected, this is the internet after all!
Looking at where the hits have came from it has also made it to the del.ici.ous popular page and the Diggdot frontpage (although i had never heard of it before today).
The story has now moved onto the second page of Digg.com, so i think the hit rate will drop, have to see how it goes tomorrow.
Thank you stacey for giving me the idea to post that blog
In other news my girly lauren has just started her first blog today on blogger.
, digg popular
This site is shocking!! People pay for advertising space on the page and in return, they get to cause damage to a dodge viper, the more they spend on advistisng the greater amount of damage they can cause to the viper.
Its jsut completely wrong in my book, the dodge viper is a thing of beauty and power and to destroy one just to get some attention and hits is beyond me.
Has a few hot women on it tho
Yesterday i signed up to technorati, its a tagging website which searches bloggs and other user-controlled websites like flickr and del.icio.us.
I’ve come to the conclusion that sites and pictures and posts that are well tagged get more hits than ones with no tags, this became evident with the beer.com picture, which i put about 15 popular tags on and as a result has had 1103 views in the past three days, compared to most of my pictures which i dont bother tagging.
I guess it is because it allows for easier searching through sites such as flickr and helps people find similar things as long as content is correctly tagged.
I still think that better and more content will give great hits and readers in the long term but at the moment i’m rather busy with uni work and i dont have the time to write all that i would like.
So from now on i ‘ll be posting a few technorati tags at the bottom of each post to try and improve the popularity and views of my blogs, as well as tagging more of my flickr photos.
