I really like this IFTTT thing. I’ve created some “recipes” to play with and they work pretty well. I created one that allows me to send a SMS with a #r hashtag to IFTTT and the contents are then used to create a reminder note in Microsoft OneNote. I found a couple others of interest including one that monitors for new WordPress posts, and if it contains a specific category or tag, it will post a link to it to my Twitter account. I’ll have to see how well that works.
The server on which I host my website had a DDOS attack against it taking it down. Lots of fun there! Here is an interesting attack map provided by Google.
