Comments are now permitted without log-in

Just an FYI that I have experimentally lifted the requirement that only logged-in users may submit comments. I am testing some reCaptcha functionality, which requires you to re-type the text that appears in an image (usually 2 words). So now, comments require a name, e-mail address and possibly the provision of the correct reCaptcha terms.

If you decide to log in, you can disregard these requirements altogether...

Depending on how much spam I get, I will decide on whether to leave the settings as such or to revert them to the log-in requirement. Please be patient, and as always, please feel free to comment if you have something interesting/useful to add to any posts.

WordPress Blog Not Indexed by Google

There are several blogs and web sites discussing issues with WordPress sites not getting indexed by Google. I was hoping that the reason my site was not getting indexed would be revealed in this thread: Major Problem solved with WordPress & Google. Unfortunately, it wasn't.

I searched a lot more and finally realized that there was a WordPress setting that handled this. I had set my site to be publicly available in an older version, but somehow, somewhere along the way, it got changed.

2009 Hyundai Santa Fe AWD V-6

With all the recent hype surrounding the Cash for Clunkers Program, I had been seriously investigating what kind of "deal" I could get, let alone what kind of SUV or Crossover vehicle would be able to replace my 15-year-old Ford Explorer (with 246,000 miles on it!).

I looked at the Toyota RAV-4, which was too cramped and overpriced. After a test drive, I found that the Ford Escape, which was all plastic, was somewhat of sub-par quality. Finally I found and test-drove the vehicle that was night-and-day above the others as far as quality and comfort at a comparable price: the 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe!

Internal Bluetooth Adapter Issues With Windows Vista

Bluetooth and the Bluetooth logo are © Bluetooth.com

My Dell Inspiron 9400 originally shipped with Windows XP, but came with a free upgrade to Vista. It also has a built-in Dell TrueMobile 355 Bluetooth + EDR module, so I decided to get a Bluetooth mouse to use with it. One slick advantage of having this built-in Bluetooth adapter is that a Bluetooth mouse can connect to it directly and there is no need to plug in an external USB Bluetooth 'dongle' for the mouse.

My mouse is a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000. Every once in a while, I had to reset the Bluetooth connection to get my mouse to re-connect, or turn the mouse off then back on, but it was never frequent enough to complain about it...
