Ping box from Yahoo!

It had been a long time since I had used Yahoo Messenger; however, I needed to install it and use it the other day, after doing so I found something which I found cool enough to blog about: Yahoo Ping Box!

With a couple clicks I was able to embed a yahoo messenger client right inside my blog. Or on any of my other sites / social networks. It was even easier then setting up AdSense. When you enter a nickname, my yahoo client is notified that so and so user has logged in. This is a negative in my opinion, as it pops up a little toast and it doesn't indicate it's from an anonymous source.

However it does warn you when you have an open chat window that it is from an anonymous pingbox user.

Get with the times!

I was checking my google analytics today (which I haven't done in ages), and I noticed something that was profoundly disturbing. In the last month, roughly 3% of the readers of this blog were using IE6.

Now I have nothing against Microsoft, (obviously since if you read my blog you would realize I develop using their tools), nor am I Microsoft hater; however, as web application developer, I strongly despise everything about IE6.

If your using IE6 or IE7 go upgrade already! Or go use FireFox.
