die “arbeit” der spammer nutzlos machen

If you’re a blogger (or a blog reader), you’re painfully familiar with people who try to raise their own websites’ search engine rankings by submitting linked blog comments like “Visit my discount pharmaceuticals site.” This is called comment spam, we don’t like it either, and we’ve been testing a new tag that blocks it. From now on, when Google sees the attribute (rel=”nofollow”) on hyperlinks, those links won’t get any credit when we rank websites in our search results. This isn’t a negative vote for the site where the comment was posted; it’s just a way to make sure that spammers get no benefit from abusing public areas like blog comments, trackbacks, and referrer lists.

neben google wollen auch msn und yahoo diese absolut begrüßenswerte idee unterstützen – jetzt liegt es nur noch an allen seitenbetreibern diese attribut einzubauen – damit wir (vielleicht) endlich ruhe haben…

also: aus <a href=”http://laestiger.spamm.er/”>klick mich</a> wird <a href=”http://laestiger.spamm.er/” rel=”nofollow”>klick mich</a> – und schon wird der link nicht mehr gewertet

Microsoft Services for Netware 5.03 SP2 and FPNW

Services for NetWare 5.03 SP2 is a free download which simplies the adoption of Windows Server 2003 by reducing overall network administration and facilitates the migration to Windows Server 2003 from NetWare, NDS and eDirectory. It consists of two tools:

• Microsoft Directory Synchronization Services (MSDSS).
• Microsoft File Migration Utility.

File and Print Services for NetWare enables a Windows Server to look like a Novell 3.x file and print server.


ignoring trackback / pingback spam

solange es keine vernünftigen mechanismen von wordpress oder von plugins gibt – die wird es wohl mit der version 1.5 geben – ist es das beste, die trackbacks / pingbacks einfach zu deaktivieren. das feature wird den meisten nicht allzu sehr abgehen behaupte ich – auf mich trifft das zumindest auf jeden fall zu. die kommentare sind schon spärlich, mit trackbacks sieht es noch schlechter aus.

als erstes deaktiviert man die funktion für die zukünftigen einträge; einfach unter “Options” – “Discussion” den punkt “Allow link notifications from other Weblogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.) ” deaktivieren.

um nun bei allen bereits bestehenden einträgen die trackbacks zu deaktivieren, muss man einfach nur das folgende sql-statement absetzen: UPDATE wp_posts SET ping_status = ‘closed’; (ggf. den namen des tables anpassen – stichwort prefix….)

ps: dieses video zeigt, was ein trackback ist. ein pingback ist ansich das gleiche – er funktioniert nur vollautomatisch.

Working with groups in LotusScript

In this article, we discuss two ways to work with groups. First, we look at the built-in LotusScript class, NotesAdministrationProcess, available in Lotus Notes/Domino 6.0 and later. This class can add members to groups, rename them, and delete them (along with many other functions not related to groups). There is no function to remove users from a group; however, if you use the administration process (AdminP) to remove users entirely, they will also be removed from groups. For more on the NotesAdministrationProcess class, see the article, “LotusScript: The NotesAdministrationProcess Class in Notes/Domino 6.

We also present two custom LotusScript classes that support a wider set of group operations. The code was written for Lotus Notes/Domino 6.0 and later; using it in release 5 requires some minor changes. The article contains a few sample agents that show how to use these classes for different tasks. The classes are not usable from COM because they use the List datatype internally, which Visual Basic does not support.
