The next phase of infiltrating every last corner of the net continues as Google roll out their “Adsense for RSS” crap. I cannot be the only person who when they see ads in any feed clicks the DELETE button. I don’t even care who supplies the ads – I don’t want them. Given the way information is presented in a reader, screen estate is at a premium so why would I want to clutter my screen with something I’m not going to click anyway ?. If you want to make Google richer, use it. If you want people to cancel your feed, use it. If you’ve any decency, don’t. (And if someone would be so kind as to invent the “Adblock for Feeds” that would be fantastic.)
So ….. what else this week: Asthma; – something in this house is triggering mine and it is getting worse, quite significantly worse actually. Not good. How the hell do I start trying to find trigger ? Youngest; – has something wrong but we know not what, probably metabolic, awaiting appt with a specialist. Zelda; – my game save has been corrupted…crapsticks and as I’m sure you know, WordPress 188.8.131.52 came out the other day and it’s lovely. Go get it.
And my little sandbox domain has generated some work which is nice.
Oh yes.. warez. Warez ….. now either the world just got honest (ha ha ha) or people stopped asking for cracks/serials (that’s wrong too probably) or Google have started to filter against that type of stuff. I notice less websites and less information in newsgroup searches than was there maybe a year or two ago. I know where to look and it’s all still there, in fact there may even be more information, yet Google chooses not to let users see that. Now you either filter / censor or you do not. It is, but hey, you know Google is acting in your best interests don’t you ?
