It doesn’t matter what you say -
"Reputation is the dream of ISPs ( and mailing consultants ) but it’s not working. Or not as much as the ISPs would want it to work. Everybody in the industry says that all major ISPs are adopting reputation based filters but I still get REAL SPAM in my yahoo,hotmail and aol ( gmail does a good job ) inboxes and some of my clients still get their confirmed opt in ( sometimes even their transactional and confirmation messages ) into the Junk folder. Contacting yahoo and hotmail actually helped. The thing is they still have blocks on a lot of ip addresses and with the ip pool shrinking every day it’s very likely that when you lease a dedicated server you get some ips that were “blacklisted” by yahoo and other ISPs even if your ip is in no public DNSBL. If that’s the case you can do everything well and your messages will still not get into inbox. You can’t just make sure everything is well and wait/hope for your reputation to go up, your clients want “instant” results. When your open rate..." - Mihai Secasiu

Wait, Google - I Thought You Were Evil! -
"Of course there is all kinds of potential for spin in Google’s blog post. For instance never once did they explain how their cloud wasn’t secure and you shouldn’t upload sensitive information to something that’s not secure if you care about that kind of thing" - Mihai Secasiu

How to Boost Your Alexa Ranking (by a MILLION Places!) in Two Months and One Day -
"I don’t want to spoil your enthusiasm or anything but getting from 1 mil to 170k is not so hard so really 1 million places is really a small achievement. It’s a lot harder to get from 170k to 50k or try getting from 170k to 5k. See the differences between those numbers is a lot smaller then 1 mil but the amount of work required is a lot greater." - Mihai Secasiu

"Someone else IS already doing it. check these are the guys that built / .

Blog of Leonid Mamchenkov -
"it’s not that google penalizes you for the self pingbacks. it’s just that the page rank is divided between all the links on a page even if the ones with “nofollow” don’t actually get it. This actually makes the links without “nofollow” get less page rank. If you remove the pingbacks there will be less links on your page so the other links get more pagerank. Of course with the number of links we have even on a single post page now having one more link with nofollow doesn’t make such a big difference. I like pingbacks and I’m not going to remove them from my blog but it makes sense that the links from the self pingbacks get the pagerank that is now lost on them so this is why I created this plugin:" - Mihai Secasiu

Any wireless router experts out there? 802.11b vs g vs n vs t and actual throughput, etc.?
you don't have to be an expert for this. use g if you want everything to work with it , use n if you want the best speed. n, is going to be the new "g", but not just yet. - Mihai Secasiu
