What is a Gravatar?

No doubt you’ve noticed the sexy little creature next to my comment posts when responding to your random bursts of geometry. That is a Gravatar? A Gravatar is an avatar. An avatar? Yeahvatar! A Gravatar follows you from blog to blog, and pops up along side many comment posts on many blog types. It’s tied to your email address, so whatever email address you give to validate yourself in a comments post will poke the computer and say “yo, sup? My picture be over here.”

Where do you set this lovely piece of bit art? gravatar.com. Register your email address with them, upload a tiny image of awesome, and you too will have avtastic comment art to add to bazillions of blogs sphere-o-blog-wide.

    Changing the URL in a spam comment is NOT going to give you a hihegr Page Rank. Page Rank works the opposite way When you approve a comment on your blog, you are in fact creating a link FROM your blog TO the spammer’s blog. That will NOT pass the spammer’s Page Rank back to you. If anything, it will pass YOUR Page Rank on to the spammer! The exact opposite of what you’re really trying to do here.You do NOT get Page Rank by providing links TO other sites you get Page Rank by having other sites link to YOU.Allen Hill recently posted..

  3. That would have to be some really thick chains, it’ll have to be pretty long too. But won’t cannon fire be able to blow it up? Besides why put a chain, when the land troops will most likely fortify a lock? Either the EoC will have to deploy land troops to capture or assault those location, I don’t think there’s much point to putting up a chain when you’ve got such a huge army at your disposal.Have we ever done that before in Terran history? I’m guessing we have, but a chain seems so fragile no matter how thick it is. Explosive shells would make quick work of it no?

    Hi, Dan, Nice review! I haunt Distrowatch regularly looking for new distros to try! The joys of retirement! I used Unity for about a week, than switched to the Ubuntu Classic destop and added a Docky to the bottom of the screen. To me, like you, the flow pattern of Unity is really awkward and if you look at Gnome 3, it looks almost the same!BTW, I sampled the new Pinguy OS. At least he puts your Home folders on the left side dock, which makes more sense than Ubuntu, at least to me!Thanks again, Dan! Keep up the good work!
