- Senator David Norris reveals who his first crush was. Warning! graphic images! 🙂 Yes, people do get paid to write such guff, and we lap it up!
- European Consumer Centre Dublin launched Howard, a cute wide eyed owl who will help you shop online this year. Simply enter the url of the site you’ll be shopping at and they will present the following:

I entered 7dayshop.com because of my previous experience with them but the only negative result was the lack of a Trustmark certificate. I’m glad the first link of the Google search points at my 7dayshop.com post. 🙂

- A really simple way of generating a thumbnail of your site. Finally, a use for Snap!
- FSF release GNU Affero GPL to address using GPLed software on public servers. The GPL requires code to be distributed if the software is made public, but there’s a loophole. Code running on a web server is more like a service. The code stays on the server and therefore code does not have to be made public. GNU Affero GPL rectifies that problem. However, if WordPress was licensed under such a license anyone who uses it would have to release any modifications they make. Read the post for more details about why the loophole still exists in GPL 3.
<@J^raxis> Some people have some weird fetishes. Which is fine. Then they take photos of them, which is not.

That Snap! thumbnail jobbie is a great tip! [Thinking out loud] I wonder if you can use an iframe for Snap!’s wiki previews? Like Snap! itself, I have a feeling I’ll be thumbnailing everything in posts for about 2 weeks and then never use it again.
Haha. Could be a WordPress plugin in that. Shouldn’t be too hard to grab the Alexa screenshot either..
I’m glad somebody found my Snap thumbnail grab tutorial useful. Thanks for linking to it.
