Trying out IFTTT

For those of you that don’t know, IFTTT stands for If This Then That. It’s a way of triggering automatic actions. Quite straight-forward really.

I wouldn’t have stumbled upon it had it not been for the announcement by Google that it is is shutting down Google Reader. I looked around for alternatives and came across this article in Lifehacker which suggested IFTTT and Pocket as a Google Reader alternative.

Cool huh?

This is kinda embarrassing…

My blog site recently had malware injected into it, apparently through one of the plug-ins I used.

I didn’t bother to troubleshoot to find out which one but took the rather extreme step of DELETING EVERYTHING on my blog and re-installing WordPress.

Sigh… It was really painful.

Anyway, I’ll have to find time to put up my treasured links page up again. I guess it’s a blessing in disguise since I can try to keep it short this time… I realize I use Google for so many things now that a page of frequently-used links seems like an antiquity!
