Favourite Tech Things

Everyone’s got their favourite techie things so I thought I would ask about, while sharing mine.

I browse the internet with Firefox and blog with WordPress (1.5). .I’m running Windows XP on a PC I custom built a year ago which has geeky technie neon lights lining the inside of the casing (which has a lovely clear panel at the side too…). With Windows running and me browsing the internet, I tend to stick on Winamp to tune into some Internet radio (and by tend to I mean always). If I’m simply playing a CD or watching a video I’ll throw on Windows Media Player which is busting at the sides with extra codecs for different media types.

When I get stuck into my blog (either kenmc.com or nflview.com) I have some handy plugins for WordPress running (here you go Kentar…) which include a good Technorati plugin, a handy del.icio.us plugin, a trendy autolinking plugin, and an extremely useful image uploader for posting my blog entries.

The ads on the side of my blog are served up by Commission Junction and Tradedoubler, while NFLView.com uses a combination of Commission Junction and Google AdSense for the American market.

I also track my websites statistics across 4 fronts – those provided by AdSense, CJ.com, Statcounter & Google Analytics.

So there’s some food for thought!

    me… I use Firefox to browse and usually i use foobar to play music.. (always) I blog with blogger but im changing back to wordpress soon for obvious reasons.. On firefox i have a few plugins one of which is the delicous thingy and then all those anti-ad ones! 😀

    The anti-advert ones are handy, my plugin rips the sponsored ads out of google (which means a trip to IE when testing adwords) but its great for killing off pop up windows. hasslefree browsing!

    I’m a firefox user too! thanks for the links Ken. the blog is @ kentar.wordpress.com but I still have a lot of work to do on it; only just started yesterday.

    can’t beat firefox. though the beta of IE7 is seemingly doing its best. don’t think i’ll ever be going back anyway… thanks for the blog link dude, I’ll give it a check. not too much customising you can do at wordpress.com though afaik…
