What's the longest you've been held up by airport security?
This week Michael traveled to San Diego to attend an Indian Gaming show. And although he admits it was entirely his own fault, he had an awful experience with airport security. We thought it would be interesting to ask how long folks have been stuck in security above and beyond the wait in line (which can certainly be a bit of a horror story by itself). Be sure to tell the story behind the delay as well. Oh, and read the thread if you want to hear all the details of Michael's experience. View poll

I know Matt Cutts said Google doesn't mind sites on the same IP interlinking as long as it is done in a natural way. While I might have a few sites on the same IP, I wasn't planning on interlinking them. What do you think about sites on different IPs with the same GA account? read more
