Must Read List

Glycemic Index, Syndrome X, Paleo Diet, and Ketogenic Diet resources

Years ago, I started researching alternatives to low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets. I encountered a lot of confusing and conflicting information, but one thing became clear as I continued to sift through the material: not everyone agrees with the orthodox view of "fat bad, carbohydrates good". And since that time, research has reinforced the case for the alternative view.

I present this page as a resource for anyone who wants to find useful links to online information, avoiding the sites containing little original information. (In other words, these links are for the source sites where the details or original research can be found.)

As always, feedback is welcome. Any new or updated info is appreciated.

Fun with Alexa

While searching for links to one of my sites today, I found and - these are simulated stock markets, based on alexa ranking.

These are great examples of using alexa data in unique and interesting (if somewhat esoteric) ways.

Interesting spammer pattern - how they find sites

Some our our sites that feature free classified ads (,, and have been hit with a few recurring spammers trying to plant ads for various off-topic products (like cell phones, etc.) I guess this is a good sign; our sites are visible and spammers feel it is worth their time and trouble to post an ad (and no, as far as I can tell, these are not bots - they're human-generated spam.)

In reviewing the referrer logs, I've noticed that in nearly every case, spammers use search engines to find sites that have been spammed previously using known keywords - or just sites that offer free classified ads or open posting capability. For example, I find these google searches in my logs, just prior to the spammer creating an account and attempting to deposit the spam content.
