  • Follow me NOT! What’s the point?

    On Twitter, a user by the name of Donna Mahony started to follow my domainventory account. She claims to be a domainer of 10 years and supposedly is the founder of Domain Boardroom forums and some other domain awards web site. When she started to follow me I responded in kind and also direct messaged […]

  • Twitter – sorry you canNOT delete this message.

    I am pretty sure this is system wide, based on my experience with multiple accounts, but it looks like Twitter has changed who can delete direct messages. In the past either party could delete a message and then it will disappear for both, meaning that there was only one copy of the message. Now only […]

  • Developing a business website solo – I underestimated it.

    I have been working on and off on developing a business website with functionality other than this is who we are, this is what we do for some time now. It has been taking me some time now to make some progress on the DomainVentory.com project for Innovadix, because of duties like family, day job […]

  • GoDaddy discount lacks the discount. It’s OK though.

    Last week I was contacted by a GoDaddy company representative by the name of Logan, who provided me with a list of my expiring domains  until the end of the year, informed me that he has been assigned to my account and can offer me a discount. I responded to him by asking for more […]

  • Skype and broadband result in happiness.

    Last night, after 10 years, I was able to see my dad live. Thanks to broadband being available, and most of all more affordable, my dad and I were arable to have a video session via Skype. Last time I saw my dad was at the Sofia airport in Bulgaria in August of 1998. Since […]

  • No smoking for you! Not in this car.

    Recently Amanda and I went car shopping. Now that Alexandar is growing bigger and we are planing on having a family expansion we needed something other than the Jeep. So, we went looking at minivans. After looking at the 5th minivan I was becoming more and more bored of the activity and pretty much all […]

  • Listening to classical music helps me stay sane … patience is a virtue!

    Listening to classical music helps me stay sane. Especially when THE LACK of daylight, the bland presence of gray cubicle walls, passive aggressive BS and the cold stare, back at me, of two 17 inches monitors make their oppression painfully obvious. Luckily I’m not easily bothered by my environment, because I realize and understand cause […]

  • Ad4Game.com fix your web forms

    Yesterday morning I tried signing up as ad publisher on Ad4Games.com. I own few gaming sites and want to show more targeted advertisements, so this ad network seemed as a decent choice. I saw them serving banners on few other websites. When I tried to register, the town I live in is comprised of two […]

  • Oh Snap! – Red Alert 3

    Wow, just wow! This is the best game ad I have seen in very, very long time. Once again the Command and Conquer community is in for a visual treat. It looks like the upcoming Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 has a great cast of actors. I really enjoy watching this video. I really […]

  • Valve being bought by Google. Please say it isn’t so.

    Valve being bought by Google! That is a horrible thought, but there are number of web sites which are reporting this. Here are a few links: http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/news/2008/09/17/google-valve http://techcrunch.com/2008/09/17/google-to-acquire-valve/ I decided to send Valve a quick email, and I think that everyone that is agains this happenign should do as well. Good morning, TechCrunch and TheInquirer […]
