URIs to Ping

The following services will automatically be pinged/notified when you publish normal or future timestamped posts. Not when you edit previously published posts, as WordPress does by default.

This plugin also fixes an issue with the default extended ping programming in Wordpress and pre-2.1 versions of Smart Update Pinger (it now includes the url of the new post).

NB: this list is synchronized with the original update services list.

Separate multiple service URIs with line breaks:

Ping log

These are the last 100 actions performed by the plugin. In reverse chronological order for easier reading (latest ping first).

Kitesurfer found drowned in Langebaan – South Africa

Posted by kite2012 On January - 7 - 2015

The kitesurfer who was an instructor was having a session in the late afternoon. According to rumours the kitesurfer, a 39 years old man from the Netherlands was doing an attempt to do an unhooked handle pass trick, but somehow managed to get one arm entangled in a steering line which resulted in the kite start making low kite loops. If the man at the same time was knocked unconscious is unsure, but it can explain why he drowned from this incident. Nevertheless, it is sad news for the kitesurfing community and we are once more reminded of the risk that is involved in kitesurfing. Never kite alone, wear a helmet, a life west and use your common sense.
