Site Updates

Google's service finally has come out of beta. What this means is that I now have some neat new features that I have to investigate. One of the interesting ones is the ability to use labels. For example, I will be able to label things related to hacking with the label hacking, and you would be able to click on that and get a list of all hacking related articles.

Of course, that means going back and editing past posts, so we'll see how quickly I get around to that - but at least for future articles I will use this feature.
