G105 Spike

Some quick (non-candy) site-related news:

  • Candy Addict was mentioned on the most popular radio station in the Raleigh area today, G105, during the Brian Thomas Surf Report at about 11AM (welcome G105 listeners!). I didn’t find out til about 20 minutes beforehand, so I figured I’d just pop a cassette into the stereo and record it…except I haven’t seen a cassette in my house for YEARS. Then I was going to try and output the sound from the stereo into my PC, so I found the proper cables….but I found that neither of my stereos has audio out (besides the speaker outputs). Grrrr. I finally ended up recording it by holding my cell phone up to the speaker and using the voice record function. So now I have it recorded…on my cell phone.
  • I added favatars to all comments so if you have a website and leave your site’s URL, it pulls the favicon from your site to display next to your name in the comment. If you don’t know what this means, don’t worry about it – the commenting process remains exactly the same – you just might see a little icon next to the commentor’s name. If you want to see it in action, leave a comment on this post to test it.

    I’m a lurker for the most part, but i enjoy the blog and am tempted by your favatars / favicon comment enough to leave a post.

    I’m guessing it has something to do with the lil’ icons that appear in the favorites that I don’t know how to create for my website and blog…

    RESPONSE: As far as I know, you can’t use custom favicons on Blogger/Blogspot. You need your own domain. Notice the Blogger icon by your name :)

    I had never seen favatars before this. Seems like an interesting idea.

    RESPONSE: Yep – they are. Similar to Gravatars, but there is no central (weak) link in the chain. There is a WordPress plugin I installed that enabled them for me.
