WassupBlog’s Posts Are Copyright Protected With Digiprove

Most people who know me, or have noticed my interaction with the fairer sex, would probably tell you that there's almost nothing I wouldn't do to please them! That being the case you're probably wondering what's taking me so long in answering a fair maiden's request that was placed some seven days ago. That fair maiden was Colleen of Kennewick Real Estate who, in the post about Speeding Up Your Blog in order to keep Google and your readers happy, asked the following; On an unrelated note Sire, a blog entry from you about the Digiprove you are using might be a good topic. Until now, I’ve never seen it nor heard of it. Just a thought, as I haven’t seen anything written on it, or other ways to protect against content theft. Might be a good topic. For those of you who don't know Colleen, she and her husband Joe are in the Real Estate game and have many wonderful properties for sale, including this one at West Pasco Washington which has stunning views. Anyway Colleen, sorry for the delay but you know what they say, better late than never and I can only hope that it was worth the wait. It all came about last December when some moron decided to steal a whole heap of my posts which eventuated in my post about stolen content, and then a followup post on the final outcome. I would recommend that post to anyone who would like to know what to do…

WassupBlog’s Milestone 300th Post

I'm pretty sure I've never done one of these posts before but I'm sure that if there's one floating around somewhere someone out there will remind me of the fact. :tongue_laugh_ee: My first ever post, Wassup Blog Is Here To Entrance And Enthrall The Reader, and I dearly hope that in that time there have been one or two posts that have managed to do just that. That particular post was was posted on August the 9th 2008 and only received two comments, one of which was mine the other belonged to my good blogging mate Mitch, who out of all the possible super powers would love longevity. Since that first post went live I think I've managed to acquire a respectful readership and I think a lot of that has been due to the fact that I tell people how it is and I don't try to gain their respect only to try and sell them something at a later date. Sure I promote many affiliates but unless I've actually tried them I don't try to fool people into assuming that I have when I haven't. What I find really amazing is that in that time this blog has received over 11500 comments. I reckon that's pretty good when you consider that all my other blogs, which you can read about in my About page, have received 3951 comments out of the 2866 posts That I've written on them. So, why has this blog out performed all those other blogs? Basically…

The Need For Speed Computer Style

In my last post I talked about some measures that I've taken to speed up my WordPress blog and while this is something I have to do every now and again I'm lucky enough not to have to worry about my PC. I used to worry about it some time back when I used to take ages deleting old files and stuff in order to get the old gal to go a little faster but now I've got a little utility to do it for me. The program I use is called TuneUp Utilities and I've set it up to scan my computer every Friday. So, every Friday at 5.15 pm it searches the hard drive and corrects any registry problems, removes invalid shortcuts, frees up disk space and optimizes hard disk performance.  As you can see from the following image of the start page although my PC is fully optimized I have one problem that threatens my overall computer health. Clicking on the link tells me that I haven't checked the hard drive for errors over the last three months and that I should check it for errors using Tuneup Disk Doctor which it's now doing as I write this post. I admit it, I've been slack because although it does a rudimentary cleanup of the system during it's weekly checkup I do need to manually optimize it occasionally just so as to make sure it doesn't delete files that I still need. What I like most about it is it's…
