New Release Tuesday will be on Wednesday this week because I spent most of my day yesterday battling HACKERS! True Up was hit by the so-called WordPress Pharma Hack. I happened to ego-surf on Google and was horrified to see that instead of True Up the link to my site was replaced with online pharmacy [...]

Technical Difficulties

Hi all — images got stripped from the feed somehow today as I was experimenting with a new social bookmarking link plugin. The images should be restored now. Don’t worry, the change was neither intentional nor permanent! Also, I heard from a reader that if you click over from the feed to comment, you see [...]
