Base, Analytics and Joomla
Okay, so by now everyone has heard that … Google Base is live. It’s gonna rock the world … most probably.
It’s rather sparse at the moment, well … comparitively against a normal Google search, ha, but that’ll change quickly. Google is a trusted name/brand. I’d say they’ll have plans in motion to implement all kinds of goodies over the next few months within the Base functionality.
Google Analytics, after a bit of a shaky start, seems to have righted itself. I’m getting some stats, although as Tad (spot) reported, it ain’t all there yet. They are seriously making their way into many different segments of the ‘Net. And it doesn’t matter if initially their product doesn’t do all that the others do … they’re Google, and the masses will use them. Me being one of the ‘Masses’.
Anyway, have been spending a little of my time with Joomla lately. My brain is having trouble wrapping itself around the actual management of content. Don’t laugh … it’s true. But just doing the simple things is making things clearer. It (and Mambo, it’s forefather) seems to be a very powerful content management system. I like the large support base, lots of helpful hints lying around the net.
Lastly, I’ve just purchased Snag It, screen capture (amongst other things) software. It’s simple, and powerful. Just the kind of functionality I like. Kudos to you Snag It peeps. It’s gonna be very handy for getting images into blog entries, and other things.
Images. Blog. Yeah.
