  • Pizza in Europe?

    Lately there has been some news surrounding Google Maps. As a result I’m obliged to sum things up. ThinkLemon style, surely. First, it was called Google Maps (beta), then Local, and now Maps again. Probably because everyone was calling it Maps anyhow. The Google Blog explains more. Second, Maps has expanded to continental Europe. Finally […]

  • WordPress 2.0 Cache Is Broken!

    As of version 2.0 of WordPress you’ll get a caching feature, which means it’ll ‘remember’ the most frequent accessed static information from your blog. This way it’s supposed to not bother the database but make a ‘fast trip’ to the server to fetch these pieces of info. In the end this should make your weblog […]
