Project Honey Pot is the first and only distributed system for identifying spammers and the spambots they use to scrape addresses from your website. Using the Project Honey Pot system you can install addresses that are custom-tagged to the time and IP address of a visitor to your site. If one of these addresses begins receiving email we not only can tell that the messages are spam, but also the exact moment when the address was harvested and the IP address that gathered it.
“PlagSpotter is an online duplicate content checker tool that allows users to put their webpage URLs in to start an Internet duplicate content scanning and detection process. The user can get a list of sites that duplicate the original source by displaying excerpts of the plagiarized text in a sentence by sentence format. This tool is still in its beta version and aspires to create an improved and perfected version of another well-known alternative duplicate content checker tool, CopyScape”
The content of this blog is generated by whatever strikes my fancy at any given point. It might be computers, weather, political, or something else in nature. I experiment and comment a lot on things so don't take anything here too seriously; I might change my mind a day later but what you read is my thought and opinion at the time I wrote it!
