Open trackback Friday

I’m posting this one on Thursday night and will let it run until Sunday night. My son has tomorrow off of school so we’re going to do something fun.

Every Friday I will try to have an Open Trackback article.

From the Open Trackback Alliance FAQ:

The entire concept is to encourage bloggers to showcase their best recent articles on other blogs which may not otherwise recognize or know about their works.

Open Trackback Alliance members have agreed to create an open article at least once a week, which anyone can create a link to their own blog articles…

So link up your best article. Let’s see what you’ve got. 🙂

My suggestion to anyone trackbacking to my blog using WordPress 2.x would be to go to your admin panel, under Options -> Discussion uncheck the box that says “Attempt to notify any Weblogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.)” This is what I have done, it speeds up posting and also stops outgoing pingbacks.

With trackbacks you get a nice summary of the incoming post, with pingbacks you get a what the WordPress development team calls “context” and what I call nonsense. If only I could suppress incoming pingbacks without suppressing incoming trackbacks as well peace would rule the world.

Date Movie…

The Date Movie was stupid. Simply put, because there are no other words to describe it. But I have to admit I did chuckle at a few things.
Spoof of romantic comedies which focuses on a man (Campbell), his crush (Hannigan), his parents (Coolidge, Will…

With the Olympics in their final week I have become almost addicted to the sport of Curling. Perhaps it’s the daily coverage that CNBC has given the sport, the strategy involved, or the beautiful Johnson sisters who run the US Women’s Team …

I had zero interest in the Olympic games until I heard about the gold medal peformance for stupidity. This newest entry to the “Agony of Defeat” reel occurred during the women’s snowboard cross finals. It plays out like a laughably un…
