Over the years, when I needed to get quick information for a Microsoft Platform SDK function, I would Google it and find the MSDN reference page at the top of the list. Recently, the MSDN pages have all but disappeared, or are far down the Google index. I'm now forced to search with Yahoo. Has anyone else noticed this? For example, I'm working on a ......

With three young children (all under 7 yrs old), I've got a beef with just about every existing website targeted to them. They are all so chock-full of ads and links that my children can never do much until veering off to some page where they don't know what happened. Usually it's because they clicked on a Google ad, some other ad, a registration link, ......

The Web is evolving in an amazing way, and it's happening right now. I'm convinced that Yahoo's acquisition of del.icio.us is going to be seen as an incredibly smart move -- and one that will not be good for Google.

This might be of interest to people. As you know, McAfee recently had a serious error with a DAT file that mis-identified good files as viruses. Depending on your settings, if your server did an on-demand scan when that DAT file was active, you may have either quarantined or deleted important files. These lost files may not become apparent to you until ......

You all know what reverse IP lookup is: trying to determine which websites reside on the same web server, whether it be a shared hosting server where the sites are unrelated or a dedicated host. The TagTooga.com site now has "Reverse Google ID Lookup" -- the ability to find sites using the same AdSense Google ID. When a site is detected to use Google ......

Most blogs have a right sidebar to display blogrolls, or linkrolls. Wouldn't it be cool to display HTML snapshots of the linked web pages instead of text links? Well, you can do it with TagTooga.com. You can check it out at http://tagtooga.blogspot.com/ where I've created a demo blog with an HTML image feed. You can also create the standard text link ......

A new social bookmarking engine called TagTooga was released just today, so it's still lacking content. However, if you're a programmer interested in AJAX, Web 2.0, Javascript, etc., it might be worth your time to take a look. The site was designed to function as much like an application as possible. Once you get past the login/registration, there are ......
