MikeDataLink writes "REL=NoFollow has ruined the web, or has it? I've been running a technology blog for a couple of years now, but have never actively promoted it (and I won't link it here either, because I am not looking for a link, but real advice). What is the best way in a rel=nofollow web to gain trusted links? I can spend hours promoting my site by trying to get bloggers to link me, or I can pay spammers to flood the web with comments, or I can register and make comments on forums (if I can find a do-follow site).
Surely there has to be a better way to go from unknown to known in the world of blogging without having to resort to those low-life tactics!" top
MikeDataLink writes "The guy who runs the Information Technology Leader's Forum is running an article on how he hosts over 40 different websites off of a FiOS connection, two servers and a big UPS. From the article "The first thing I want to do is point out two VERY important things: 1. Hosting on FiOS is an absolutely fine thing to do, and is fully supported by Verizon. 2. There is a major difference between Verizon’s Consumer FiOS and Verizon’s Business FiOS. This website, and over 40 other websites of mine are running on a 20/20 symmetrical FiOS connection. Surprised? You shouldn’t be."" Link to Original Source top
MikeDataLink writes "TheGeekPub.com is running an article on how Peter Jackson Films is deleting negative comments on their D9 pages: "I guess this should be a lesson to all of us that you can’t trust everything you read in user forums or reviews which most of us knew. But it also appears you can’t trust Facebook fan pages either as they are being manipulated by the owners to make their product(s) more favorable."" Link to Original Source top
MikeDataLink writes "I recently did a little investigation of my own. I noticed that the news station I watch shows the full names of children and teens on the air when doing interviews and stories. I wrote the names down and then searched MySpace.com for those names in my area. To my not so much suprise, I found a large majority of them with pictures, blogs, and contact information. Is it a good idea for news stations to use a little more caution in showing full names of minors in this day and age or am I over reacting?" top
MikeDataLink writes "My-PC-Help.com has a free video about spyware, adware, malware and other malicious software. I think this should be a must watch for anyone before they are allowed to purchase a PC. The video discusses hijackers, myspace scams, and other common deceptions that most non-geek users aren't aware of. The video is also available on YouTube."
It appears very likely! Mike over at MurrayNet writes "I'd like to present to you the most evil creature on the planet. Yes. The Yellow Jacket Wasp. Yes, these evil little bastards are the scum of the earth. So unforgiving and mean. I mean... come on... all I did was crush their house with my foot." Read More...
Sorry Mike, but I can't help but laugh at you! Stay away from the Yellow Jackets nests!!!

My-PC-Help has released a video on understanding spyware. The video is designed to teach people, old and young, about the problems of spyware as well as how you get it, and how to avoid it. Check it out, and show it Mom & Dad! I'm personally tired of reloading their PC.
