VeriSign buys Weblogs.com for US$2.3 million

VeriSign has bought network infrastructure underpinning key services for bloggers from owner Scripting News for US$2.3 million in cash.

VeriSign has bought network infrastructure that underlies key services for bloggers from owner Scripting News for US$2.3 million in cash, the companies announced Friday.

The infrastructure includes the Weblogs.com site, which shows a list of recently updated blogs, and its "ping" server, which allows bloggers to send notifications to one another when they update their blogs.

The Weblogs.com server deals with almost 2 million pings daily, the companies said.

By moving the site's ping function onto its servers, VeriSign will be able to deliver a more reliable and scalable service to users, it said. It intends to continue operating Weblogs.com as an "openly available service," it said.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
