There have been a couple of updates in the past few weeks:
- Our search box now uses Google Blog Search. The reason is that a$$-clown spammers were doing many searches to get themselves noticed in our activity log. This slowed down our performance. Using Google fixes that. But blog posts take a while to appear in Google – days or weeks, if at all – so we now use Google Blog Search. New posts appear in search results soon after their posting.
- In addition to the Frappr map link, the Map widget has been updated with the Map Loco map. (Although I’m still toying with the idea of using ClustrMaps.)
- The News Feeds widget has been streamlined to take up less space.
We now return you to our regularly scheduled blog…
