Neat Place!

This is a neat feature of Google Maps… Put a Google map location into a blog and toss in the Street a View and Driving Directions as a bonus!

The maps and street view are dynamic. This means the zoom and scale functions as if it were native.

Blog Comments & Spammers

Bad cached ip?

“These are a few of my favorite things!”

I’m trying to add blog comments to one of the many blogs I follow and the spam control cop blocks me… It asks me to request authorization to post a comment. So I take a few minutes, fill out the request, and send it. Much to my dismay, my request to request access is blocked! The message states “bad cached ip”. Now that is the most descriptive, user-friendly error message I have ever seen.

I have no idea how to turn my bad cached ip into a good cached ip (if that is possible)… So instead of posting an amazingly brilliant comment, my only recourse is to vent my anger and frustration in my own blog. After all, isn’t that what blogs are for? 😬
