TwURLa: Domain stats : Needs your help!

TwURLa is a new site where developers of all kinds can search and find stats for their domain and how it performs on Twitter. The site aggregates your daily “hits”, which are the amount of times that your site appears on Twitter. The site is currently in development, however they have hit a roadblock from the Twitter team:
We have been in contact with Twitter regarding their API use and about what data we are “allowed” to show on our site. At this point, we are not allowed to show ANY …

Chrome Nightly: mini_installer.exe isn’t updating

I downloaded the latest nightly build of Chrome, only to realize that the mini_installer.exe wouldn’t update my Chrome installation on Windows 7. I would run the executable, but nothing would happen. Finally, I decided to change the compatibility to Windows Vista and Vola!, it worked!
So if you’re having trouble with the mini_installer.exe, just right click the exe, goto Properties. Then goto the Compatibility tab and then choose Windows Vista. No matter if you delete the mini_installer.exe, the settings should stay the same for any mini_installer.exe in that same folder (Desktop?). …

Adsense Disabled my Account! New Ads!

I was contacted by Google yesterday about my AdSense account. I guess our ads were “a risk to Adsense’s publishers” (more here), when really I think the issue was that we were getting close to our first payout.

Twisten.fm: Discover Music on Twitter! Maybe…

I noticed a new service offered by my wonderful friends over at Grooveshark the other day, Twisten.FM . I was intrigued by what they said it did: Discover music through Twitter. I decided to check it out, and I gave them (grooveshark) my twitter email and password. Hopefully, they will support OAuth when Twitter finally releases it. I know some of the members at Grooveshark and I would trust them with my login; they aren’t going to “hack” you or anything, they just need your following list so they can …

Windows 7 SKUs: Worse Than Vista!

Reading Engadget recently I noticed that Microsoft finalized the Windows 7 SKUs (or Versions). I read further, despite reading the title which pretty much gives away the article. Vista had 4 primary versions and now it looks like Windows 7 will get even worse and have 6! I don’t understand what Microsoft is trying to accomplish? These versions are just confusing to customers. Instead, they should sell one dvd with all of the versions and then allow the user to pick at time of installation. Of course, the user would …

Gmail Offline Mode

Gmail recently released the 0.1 version of “Offline” which lets you read your Gmail messages, even when you are not connected to the internet. It uses Google Gears, a browser plugin that is compatible with several different browsers, which processes and syncronizes your email messages from your computer to the Google mail servers. Currently it is in its early stages, so it is developed under Google Labs for now. Later it is expected to be streamlined within Gmail.

When you are using offline Gmail and you send an email, it cues …
