JAVIER SOLANA: NOW YOU SEE A LOT OF HIM ON GOOGLE, NOW YOU DON'T!
Please add your radio show and link to the top of your page with CST so we can go to your page and just click to listen. Make an ad.
$20 a month is a bit steep to go to the archives.
Thank you for the interesting show today with Holly.
Have a pleasant evening.

I'm not sure what this means, but other things have happened as well. The PageRank for many sites have simultaneously went down (even by 2 or three points); while at the same time Google now seems to be paying more attention to its "Beta" products than its traditional index of the internet.
On another note: In the screenshot, why is that your Ask.com toolbar is duplicated on your IE browser? Weird.
Thanks for the insight! I don't know how the Ask.com got up there once, let alone twice, except that sometimes when something is located or downloaded, an offer to place it and I accidentally type yes rather than "no" or "cancel"
IT IS FASCINATING that within a very few minutes after I put this story up that Solana's hits went back up to over 1.5 million!
Wonder if they are watching ??? hmmm?
I'm probably not the first to suggest it, but you really should consider Firefox for your regular browser (if not, even Opera will suffice).
IE 7 is more secure than IE 6, sure, but the main problem is still there: it is an extension of the operating system itself. Pardon the grim, even gross analogy, but IE is akin to an internal organ leaving the body and poking around at the outside world. Thus is is quite vulnerable and easy to infect; and, if compromised, spreads rapidly to the heart of the system.
I've been using Firefox now since 2004! ... maybe even 2003. I had a hard time at first to adjust, but the benefits far outweigh any initial learning curve. The features (add-ons and skins) are top notch as well. Its a win-win situation all around.
My initial impetus to take the plunge stems from the fact that I'm a web developer/designer. For years and years, us "makers of the web" have been on IE's case to get with the CSS and HTML standards - to no avail. It took them 7 years just to update to IE 7!!! The rest of the browser manufacturers have kept up with the state of the art in web development, and have implemented the W3C standards to exactitude. This makes our jobs easier. The fact that we have had to code to the shortcomings of IE, has meant that an inordinate amount of time and money has been devoted to an inferior product just because it has hegemony over the majority of the surfing public.
