Adsense has been a blogger’s friend for ages now. I wonder why does’nt wordpress.com allow us to put our own adsense? We do blog for the love it, that i will admit. It totally creeped out on my as a VERY addictive passtime. Having said that, i would still like to make a buck or two if i can!.
I”M SURE this is something that they have talked about, and considered etc. However, nothing i have read or heard about. Does anyone know what does wordpress.com is thinking about adsense?
IF YOU WANT ADSENSE, LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD, COMMENT TO THIS POST.
I just read the following on wordpress’s features page
“To support the service we may occasionally show Google text ads on your blog, however we do this very rarely. In the future you’ll be able to purchase an upgrade to either turn the ads off or show your own ads and make money from your blog.”
SO thats REALLY something to lookforward to. Thank you WP for all of your hard work.

Before i get started, PLEASE vote for wordpress to integrate OpenID. (You will need a wordpress.org user/pass, ironically, if you voted for this, you WONT have to have user/pass for million sites again!!)
Now, I feel dumb when i see something like OpenID out there and i hav’nt heard of it!. Waw, where to start!?!?!?!?
Well, think of it!. Back in highschool math, we learned to simplify expressions like:
y = 12x + 48x^2 + 12x^4
Into this form:
y = 12x ( 1 + 4x + x^3 )
Okay!, now, if the problem of authentication could be factored out of web development just the same!
www = site1(authentication, rating, blabla) + site2 (authentication, downloads) + ..
would be transfered to this.
www = OpenID( site1(rating, blabla) + site2(downloads) + …. )
Solid idea!, i CANNOT wait till all CMS’s come equipt with OpenID. This would make CMS integration SOOO EASY!, I wonder how OpenID is going to shape up in the future.
My guess would be, eventually, people optaining an OpenID somewhere local after presenting proper identification.

High there, if you are reading this letter. Then you probably are wondering as to what this is all about. Keep reading and your life will change 360 degrees.
This letter is a quick template of all small websites which sell you crap that NO ONE NEEDS. The product which i will attempt to sell is THIS VERY POST’S POPULARITY!. My purpose behind this is to try to spread the word among people who STILL pay for useless scrap on-line.
These small websites are usually promoted by PPC adds. Usually starts off by few paragraphs that EVERYONE can relate to. So far i have accomplished that by reminding you of what of websites i’m talking about. You have heard about them? sure you have!.
Somewhere down the list of the first few paragraphs. I will ask you a set of questions that will invoke a SERIOUS emotion in your hart, and SOMEHOW tie that up with what i’m trying to sell you:
- Can you get over the lost of a loved one?
- Do you wish you can say to your kids, “Sure, vacation this summer it is!”?
- Are you afraid of tomorrow? (I actually saw this question!, who the hell is’nt?)
At this stage of the letter, you are probably a bit tender. Ready for an emotional release. So i take the opportunity and try to make up a whole bunch of logical mombo jumbo that serves ONLY ME!. However, using simple misdirection, i’ll make you think that will be super man. I’m about to deminstrate that.
These websites are all over the place. I feel like SH1T for the poor and vulnerable people who fall into this trap. Now, what i want to do is, establish this letter as an example for potential victims to be aware off. The more people who will read this post, the more familiar they will be with the format of these types of scams. I am not claiming that i will clean the Internet. But if i can let,,,,, i donno!, a thousand people not to buy this CRAP. Then i will make the a55holes running these websites about $50,000 less richer. Of-course, the more success the better.
So what do we have here so far!, i just sold you an idea without you knowing really!. So i’m going to rephrase my pitch a way that will guilt trip you into saying yes, Not only that, but i will also make you feel stupid for saying NO to not go with me.
Here it goes, you don’t poor people with low IQ to wast their money that they should be saving in dumb stuff on-line so other a55hole gets richer do you?, you can go ahead and spread the word, but seriously!, do you have the time? How abut the money? it is a VERY hard and difficult process. Or, How would you feel if i told you, that you can save vulnerable and POOR people by simply sharing this post with a friend!?!, just send it to a friend by email or whatever method you would like. And rest assured that you have done your part to make sure that those a55holes don’t make money selling people sh1t they do not need.
At this point of the sales letter, you probably are ready to purchase! so will attempt to close the sale by having the ORDER NOW little form here:
Maybe not? okay, so lets put some “time sensitivity” into this, we’ll use the old math trick. Think about this now!, you send one email to five friends who do the same!. This is 3125 emails by level five!. SO this is 3125 * $50 = $15,625 that you would have taken away from the hands of the scamers!!!!! Think about this!, every SECOND you let it go by, you are potentially giving these dipsh1ts $15K. So how about a purchase?
If you still not convinced? how about some “testimonials” so here they are.
I am 34 with 23 cats. I SHOULD’NT be trusted with money!, but crule fate has lead me a position where i’m making six figures income KNOWING the fact that i have the IQ of a Pez Dispenser,,,,,,, the older models!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, a broken older model. Nasty world huh!?, either-ways, instead of purchasing a CD which makes me happy and sexy. I ended up giving all of my money to my boyfriend in Nigeria who’s mother is having a Love transplant surgery. We hav’nt met before, but hopefully soon 🙂

ou know!, i’m not saying that their products are all bad. Every once a while, i do see something which is ACTUALLY cool and worth purchasing. BUT, no one, and i mean NO ONE UNDER ANY CONDITIONS should be making financial decisions based on emotional feelings. And since these small websites will manipulate you emotionally, they are EVIL!. That’s what pimps and hustlers do!. Do not be tricked!

Okay, so i’m involved in a project where i have to scale wordpress MU to 50,000+ users. I’m new to this whole scaling game, but i do get the bottom line of it and i have enough skills to make it happen. So i did a bunch of reading, and here are the options which i found out of googling for an hour. PLEASE, we NEED FEEDBACK 🙂
1: The most simple solution was presented in this MU support thread, As showen in the diagram on the side. His main stratagy is to install “out of the box” MU on a whole bunch of machine, and to find a way to distrubte the traffic between all of them using apache rewriting rules. To achive that, he is using a local DNS which would be a MUCH better idea than using IPes. This idea is simple to implement and it requires NO messing around with any code.
2: The second way (dont have a picture for it yet) which i’m thinking of doing is a bit more involved but it does make more sense to me. So, you will have a load balancer in the front, distributing the load among X amount of web servers. The webservers will have nothing but apache and MU on them. They will store no information other than sessions. Mounted to these servers, we’re going to have file servers which have LOTS of space on them, this is where all the user files will be kept. And finally the DB’s, this is where most of the work is going to happen. THe idea is to create LOTS of databases, and to determine what user should be using what DB based on thier user name. Best explained by Matt.
It would also be possible to have some sort of domain based key with random distribution, for example you could take an MD5 hash of the incoming username, then use the first character of that hash to go to one of 16 clusters or databases. If you grow beyond that start using the first two characters, which increases your number of machines by a factor. Then when you grow more use the first 3 characters… 🙂
The second way requires fiddling with the source code. Which i dont mind doing, but i just want to make SURE that i HAVE to. 🙂
This video was made to spread, and i’m going to do my part.
There was a family guy episode where stewie attempted to invent a time machine. He called it,,,,, well, “Time Machine”. From Stewie’s thought proccess, you can derive that he THINKS that this is an original Idea. We all do that at a point of time dont we? invent or think about an idea which allready exisit.
dontdatehimgirl.com is a REALLY cool (and somewhat funny) websites where girls get to go and vent about thier bad breakups!!!. Now here is the twist, I ACTUALLY attempted to build something of that nature way back in the summer. BUT I STOPPED!, i thought i would put all of my effords twards a different idea.
So yeahh, the website owner was on Dr phill and i’m sure her system admins were sitting there watching the load go higher and higher. cha ching for her.
