ShareThis chicklets customized so they look similar

Make ShareThis “Chicklets” Look All the Same

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve written before on my blog about ShareThis — I do love their WordPress plugin and their analytics provide some interesting insights into my blog traffic. There is however a niggly little thing which has been bugging me for a while — and it’s all to do with the way their “chicklets” look. (If you’re […]

CDN — The Basics — Part 2

Posted by & filed under , , .

In the previous post, “CDN — The Basics — Part 1”, we got as far as looking at the situation where a load ballancer is employed in front of a set of identical web servers, and the DNS is handled externally by a dedicated DNS server, potentially in a different cloud/region/data center. As it has […]

I wish I could put a “1 out of N” at the end of this post title, however, I have no ideas how far this will go unfortunately; I do however realise that the more I go into details about this subject the more there is to be said about it. And what I have […]

(Disappointing) Review of My Blog’s Traffic

Posted by & filed under , , .

A while back I’ve boasted on this very blog about the amount of traffic it has reached — based on stats that I have pulled up from the Wassup WordPress Plugin. I have decided recently to have a closer look at the traffic — any blogger who’s taking himself seriously checks now and then on […]

8,000+ Page Views a Month!

Posted by & filed under , , , , , .

Back in February/2012, I’ve hit 3,000+ page views a month — big milestone for a small blog like this, I’m sure you’ll all agree! It appears traffic has been on the way up though, as my latest look at the Wassup stats reveals over 8,000 page views for the last month! And that is, as […]

3,000+ Page Views a Month!

Posted by & filed under , , , .

In case you haven’t guessed it, yup, I’m talking about this very blog hitting a new milestone and hitting over 3,000 page views a month! I know this doesn’t sound like much for a “serious” website, but for something like this blog it IS a lot! Even more so as a lot more of the […]

Advertising or Information?

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

This goes out to all you ad skeptics out there who bang on about how useless the internet advertising is and how it should be banned / destroyed / 101’d etc: it is sad that not often advertising is delivered as a complement to the content being viewed, and as such it doesn’t come across […]

Optimize the Download Speed of a Web Page: CSS

Posted by & filed under , .

Since I’m going through the old website and resurrecting pages which seem to be still sought after by visitors to my website (I can tell this based on search engines terms they use and what they search for then on my website), I’ve come across this old one, talking about optimizing the loading speed of […]

Server Migration

Posted by & filed under , , .

Some of you might have noticed, some might not, but I finally got off my arse to migrate my liviutudor.com domain to a proper hosting package. Gone are the days where I had 2 servers stuck under my desk at home — as much as I had fun X11-ing into my Linux boxes and adding […]

“I dont need advertising!”

Posted by & filed under , , .

I talked in my previous post about people who are self-proclaimed online advertising haters and touched there on the subject of the targeted and not targeted audience when it comes to online advertising. I felt the subject deserves a few more lines from me so here it is: I know a lot of you keep […]

“I hate advertising!”

Posted by & filed under , , .

Maybe due to the fact that I have been involved throughout the last few years of my life in online advertising, or maybe because of the nature of the people I come in contact with frequently but the above phrase has become a common occurrence in daily conversations. I bet some of you reading this […]

How good is your hosting?

Posted by & filed under .

I’ve seen so many adverts lately online for various hosting packages and co-locaton offers, data centre and so on, each one of them claiming to be the best there is thus raising the question: which one is the best really? While beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, the answer is always relative […]

Programming for bandwidth

Posted by & filed under .

Just like many others I do keep an eye on the technical articles and blogs that are out there on the net. I’d like to think that most of the ones I’m reading are quite authoritative on some areas of programming and present some useful insights into the world of IT. Even so, I am […]

A Big Space in between Firefox and Internet Explorer

Posted by & filed under , , .

For those of you who tried to put together a “flatten” function cross browser to eliminate consecutive spaces and/or trim some text that is retrieved from the HTML page itself, you might have noticed that a simple regex of the kind /\s+/gm is simply not enough and occasionally Internet Explorer would still return a string […]
