My latest iPhone app called Illuminate is now available at Apple’s App store: http://bit.ly/bByrgy.
Illuminate is a free application that turns your iPhone’s screen into a light source. I generally use it when trying to read a menu at a dimly lit restaurant. Hopefully you will find it useful too!
I am just getting way too many spam comments on my blog lately. Akismet isn’t doing a good job of identifying these comments as spam as they generally appear to be genuine comments. Except that the author and website are for a specific product or company looking to increase their Google Page Rank. I don’t really want to disable the link to a legitimate author’s website or blog, so I have decided to make the spammers do some work. I have installed the reCAPTCHA plugin which will make all comment authors type in a couple of words located on a reCAPTCHA image. This not only limits spam, but Google uses reCAPTCHA to help in their effort to digitise books.
