  • Verizon rep – being a long time customer is definitely important, but….

    I just got off the phone with a Verizon Wireless representative. I was inquiring about upgrading my phone and what kind of deal they could offer me. I had to revert back to a 5 year old phone due to a recent mishap with the mobile phone I was actively using. The deal they could […]

  • The finger plus camera equals douchebaggery.

    This morning I came across this picture of Francisco Dao (founder of StrategyandPerformance.com), at the TechCrunch August Capital Party, giving the finger to the camera. There used to be a time when I found this to be funny. I used to do it myself a lot. I guess it was a comical way to show […]

  • GE Calls For More Exports from the US

    On the way to work this Friday morning I was listening to NPR. They broadcasted an interview conducted by host Renee Montagne with General Electric’s CEO Jeffrey Immelt. Mr. Immelt spoke at an economic forum in Montreal earlier in June. He is asking for the United States to increase its exports, especially in areas where […]

  • Double that plus more is NOT “a little more”!

    Few weeks ago we had a salesman from Illinois Energy come to the house to give us an appraisal for the replacement of few windows and couple of glass sliding doors. In addition to asking random personal questions, irrelevant to what he does or sells, his presentation and presence lasted just about two and a […]

  • What is the point behind a URL shortening service? Why are there so many?

    What is the point behind a URL shortening service? In essence, why is everyone using them and why are there so many? These were questions asked on TechCrunch, yesterday, by Ronald Tin, but not in so many words. My reply to him was as follow: Ronald, the point of a URL shortening service is to […]

  • Server scalability and Oxbury Publishing.

    Currently Hive Minds Hosting is hosting Oxbury Publishing, including their other web properties. As the company business is growing, and it is expending in to customized reports and articles, delivered via newsletter, I know that the current server will not be able to handle the load of newsletter campaigns that are going to take place.

  • Layout update to DomainRecord.Info

    I did some layout changes to DomainRecord.Info tonight. Read more about them on the DomainRecord.Info project blog on the Innovadix web site.

  • 3000MB does not equal 3GB

    I find it so annoying when companies and individuals, who are in the technology business or are technically inclined, incorrectly calculate storage space. For example WordPress founding member Matt Mullenweg, in his “Free Space to Three Gigabytes” post states that the free space on WordPress.com will be increased to 3,000 MB, yet the title states that […]

  • Email Signatures – I Hate Them.

    I f-ing hate email signatures. For most part they are useless and only take more space than the actual email content is. In my time of receiving emails and providing customer support I have come across a variety of email signatures and other text and image email appendages that are completely unnecessary. It is rare […]

  • Web design and standards. Key word standards!!

    I am working on a new project with my brother and his publishing company. One of my tasks is to set up a new site for his company. One thing I am really, and I mean really, good is modifying things. Be they digital or physical, I can take something and turn it into something […]
