Google text ad previewer

This Google Blog post lets you see what text ads Google AdSense would serve with your website. Much fun to be had. I’m not sure what I should think of my results. (There was nothing there yet for “”, just “wlonkly”). Four ads for charities means it didn’t have anything specific for you.

Walking on air

First off, apologies for disappearing for so long. Things have been pretty busy, and then last week I was on vacation and spending minimal time in front of computers (and lots of time down in the Market sipping lattes at Timothy’s and reading crime novels and Foucault — yay for cheap vacations!) So you may […]


You may remember my recent poll in which we learned that most people tend to think of me as a mendel. Well, the lovely miss Candice was kind enough to buy me a rename token (and truthfully I probably would never have got around to it otherwise), so now everyone can think of me as […]

wlonkly compatibility layer

So I did that compatibility thing that’s been making the rounds. So did everyone else, apparently, because my result is, as it were, hugass.

Support milestones

Wow, it’s been a busy few days on the LiveJournal Support front. Even though the last little while has been a little too much “LiveJournal is experiencing performance problems” to my liking, and even though long work hours have kept me off the boards, the last little while has pushed me past 100 support points, […]
