First things first.  I just got back from a two-week vacation at the beach with my wife and kids and I’ve never felt better.  I can’t remember the last time I actually went away for two weeks straight…it felt great!

As soon as I got back, I got myself a new Sony VAIO so I could take my IM business with me anywhere I go.  It feels great not to be tied down to my home computer.  You can count on more frequent, and more valuable, posts from me ongoing.  What do you all recommend as far as backing up your laptop files?  USB device?  Online storage?  I know I’m one “trip and fall” away from losing all my data…lol.

Black Hat Attack

I would like to point out that “Black Hat Attack” is now SOLD OUT.  I knew this would be a hot one.  Congrats, Alex.


WordPress Uniquefier

I received an e-mail today from the creator of WordPress Uniquefier stating that version 2.0 is now available.  I had bought version 1.0 a while and so I’m on his list.  What rubs me is that version 2.0 is available to those who bought version 1.0…at a 50% discount.

Am I crazy?  Shouldn’t you get upgrades for free when you purchase a script?  The creator says that this is a “major upgrade”.

Well, phpBay has had some major updates too and I get those for free.  Besides, some issues mentioned in his sales thread have me doubting whether this thing is worth it.

WordPress Uniquefier = SHOVE IT!

LiveSearch xRank Tool

We know about Google Trends, we know about Yahoo Buzz, but yesterday I was reading Cash Tactics and saw a post about MSN’s LiveSearch xRank tool.

This is a cool little, free tool that tracks celebrity popularity in MSN’s search.  You can view the top 1,000 searches and beyond.

Take a look and, if you’re feeling ambitious, cross-reference it with Trends and Buzz.  Get those blog posts going early and stay ahead of the game.

xRank = LOVE IT!
