WoW Sparks Family Dispute

WoW Sparks Family Dispute -

If you’re planning on having children some day then I highly suggest you listen to this audio track. I don’t feel the need to explain what’s going on other than the fact that the brat was playing WoW and his parents wanted him to stop. Oh and be sure to turn your mic off or you’ll be ridiculed for the rest of your life and live infamously on the interwebs. Enjoy!

Speed up Google Analytics with a local urchin.js

Over at the Ask Apache site there is an article about Google Analytics and how to speed up your page load. You can read it here: Speed Up Google Analytics with Urchin.js
Ever notice that sometimes your sites take a while to load all the way because google's urchin.js file is taking forever? You may recognize this problem when you see something similar to this in your browsers status bar "Transferring data from google-analytics.com..." Time To Setup? 4 minutes I got tired of seeing that all the time and so I set up an automated cronjob that runs every 12 hours and downloads the latest version from google, and saves it to my website directory, then I reference /urchin.js instead of http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js.. and my site loads a lot faster!

PC World Reviews Apple OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

PC World reviews the newest release of Apple's Max OSX version 10.5 codenamed "Leopard". In this review "Edward Mendelson" states one big remark.
"First: despite minor problems, it's by far the best operating system ever written for the vast majority of consumers, with dozens of new features that have real practical value—like truly automated backups, preview images in folders, and notes and to-do lists integrated into the mail program".
I have only played with Leopard in the last few days and seen it in action on a co-workers laptop, and I'm starting to thing more and more about purchasing a Macbook Pro! <!--brea--
