Weekly Link Round-Up #26

It was a pretty busy week with regular work and freelance work, but here are a few things that I found interesting this week:

  • You didn’t come here from Google

    Apparently Joshua Porter’s blog was flooded with spam links, and his blog was dropped from the Google index. This was the result of a well-known WordPress hack. This example shows the importance of staying on top of upgrading when a new version is released. On the other hand, it is really sad the society we live in. Do these hackers really gain that much from this crap? It’s really annoying.

  • The 2008 Gmail Appeal

    Easily the best thing I saw this week. I think Outlook 2007 is more of a problem than Gmail, but really it is just HTML emails in general.
