If you own or are familiar with Pligg then you know it has a huge problem with spam robots. This is mostly due to the fact that it hasn’t got an email validation module included.
This module implements a mechanism for email confirmation on all the new registered users. The module doesn’t affect users registered before the plugin was installed. If a user doesn’t provide a valid email address or doesn’t activate his account he can’t submit stories.
The plugin doesn’t affect your template and works with any Pligg template you may use.

Nearly three years ago, a video demo of a new desktop user interface, the Bumptop, captivated YouTube viewers. A year later the creator, Anand Agarawala, was called to the august TED conference to present. Now the Bumptop software is here, ready for you and your Windows PC. I gave it a spin.
It’s certainly very cool. In many ways it is a better desktop than the one that comes with Windows (even Windows 7) or OS X. But as cool as it is, it feels like a toy. That’s because the locus of modern personal computing is not the desktop. People live in apps and in the browser.
Bumptop makes the desktop better, but so what? It won’t make you more productive in your e-mail app, and it currently doesn’t touch the Web browsing experience. Bumptop doesn’t go deep enough into Windows to replace the way we work with information. Instead, it adds yet another interface to use in addition to the Windows utilities (like the file manager), your apps, and your Web browser.
Typography Keyboard Layout (Win / Mac)
Good designers, undoubtedly, know that quotation marks look like ?this? and not like “this.” The latter are typewriter legacy and today are to be used solely in programming. Good designers also know, that dash is not the same as hyphen.
The most common use for hyphens in English is (surprisingly enough) hyphenation; dashes are used in ranges (2006?2009) or ? and this is an example ? as an alternative to parentheses. Good designers never use letter ?x? instead of multiplication sign in 1920×1440, and they never put (c) instead of © under their work. Oh, and they also do good designs.
So, now life is going to be a little bit easier. No more will you need to open Character Palette or try to recover that Alt+0163 combination from your memory.
