As I said before I was trying to subscribe to some podcasts and thought that I could share them with you. So here is the list
Tech – mostly web designing and programming
Web Standards with Imagination – Feed
Audible AJAX – Feed
TalkCrunch – Feed
SXSW 2006 Interactive Panels Podcast – Feed
O’Reilly Etech 2005 – Feed
Carson Workshops submit – Feed
The kamla bhatt show – Feed
So if you guys have some recommendations then do let me know. And also I ran into some problems when dealing with podcasts in iTunes more on that later.

Off late my blog has been receiving lot of comment spam. Though most of them are caught by WordPress itself I still needed to manually delete them. I planned to install Captcha to overcome it but then dropped the plan since it might cause accessibility problems and even W3C doesn’t recommend it (and me being a guy who believes that a webpage should be accessible for all :)).
Luckily Akismet came to my rescue. Akismet is the brainchild of Matt Mullenweg, the maker of WordPress. It’s a wonderful spam killer and integrates well with WordPress and other bloging platforms too. Every comment left in the blog is sent to a web service filter which filters out the spam comments and the success rate is nearly 100%.
All you need to use it in your blog is just to enable it and enter the API key which you can get by registering with WordPress.com. And once you enable it you never have to worry about spam again.
It comes as a plugin with the default installation of WordPress, but I don’t know how I missed it all these days. You can also download it from Akismet.
So, one more reason for me to love WordPress.
