Housekeeping Items

A couple of minor housekeeping items.

First, for those of you in the modern readership that insist on visiting this website without the leading “www”, this functionality disappeared for a while after an Apache upgrade. It’s back.

Second, I’ve added Google Ads to the permalinked versions of items. Because the vast majority of the hits of these are “from away” — mostly inbound links from Google and MSN searches — this shouldn’t affect the daily readership, and will provide a modest income that will help offset the cost of providing Google energy to all those weirdos searching for strange stuff. In the last 24h, I’ve made $1.95!

putting adwords on permalink items is a great balance. I was of the impression that adwords were not allowed on Weblogs, perhaps being a reinvented, inc. blog got you off the hook?

This isn’t a weblog.

Further to which: “In general, we do not accept personal pages or chat sites into the AdSense program. However, if a site contains targeted, text-based content and/or provides a product or service, we may consider it for participation.”

Whatever a weblog it, this is in it. Even I couldn’t bend that last definition into avoiding violation by this site.

This is what I get for posting to a blog in Canada, where people actually speak French. I know I was the one who started being obscure, but still I resent not being able to understand the responses to my post.
