TAC(Theme Authenticity Checker) is a WordPress Plugin, TAC stands for Theme Authenticity Checker. Currently, TAC searches the source files of every installed theme for signs of malicious code. If such code is found, TAC displays the path to the theme file, the line number, and a small snippet of the suspect code. As of v1.3 TAC also searches for and displays static links.

A Small But Significant Update From Alexa.com. Now They are now showing Country Ranking on top menu.
Check Screen Shot below.
alexa new

Check My Live Alexa State Page:
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/asif.im

The confusing part is how they are deciding the country to show. In my exploration i find out its showing the country where that specific site have better rank. Like for Asif2BD.info, it has Alexa rank of 750 in Bangladesh so its showing Bangladesh. But when i was exploring more i find out, its showing USA for facebook, where FaceBook.com have Rank 3 in USA, but Facebook has rank 1 in Bangladesh, but its still showing USA as showing country, so it seems its consider origin country too, like where its owner information or where is its server.

Google PageRank Update in Motion: Q2 Sep, 2009 Coming

Its not confirmed news, but after Caffeine update, its might be in motion. Last update was around February, 2009. Its already about 7 Month, Means 210+ Day.
And main reason is we are sensing some change in PR among BlogSpot Blog. We generally know BlogSpot blog got PR update frequently then sites. But Depending on few source and community feedback BlogSpot Blog’s PR changing. Most possibility is Google Changing some algorithm, they might be considering Yahoo LinkBack with more priority.
So People fasten your set-belt, PR update might come in 24-72 Hr. And might last time, for sometime all PR server might starts to fail and showing 0 PR for most site. Just dont worry. Exact PR will come to your site in time.

BTW i Think Best PR checking Site is – http://LinkX.In/pr
