  • Do Address All of My Questions … In the Same Reply, Please!

    Multi-point messages: messages which might address multiple points or ask more than one question in the same body of text. I am positive that people do not lack in their mental capacity! So, why is it that they are incapable of reading an email message in its entirety? Even if they actually read everything, why […]

  • Humongous snowflakes

    I have NEVER seen such big snowflakes. They are the size of tree leaves. They are big enough to box with them!

  • The great Google / TitanFusion.net experiment

    I have decided to conduct an experiment on my website TitanFusion.net. A very involved experiment.  I am going to see how many aspects TitanFusion.net: email, blogs, sub-sites, files, feeds, exc. can be hosted and served by Google services, be they independent or part of Google Apps. I have already been using Google Apps Mail and Feedburner […]

  • My XBOX 360 is kaput!

    My XBOX 360 is kaput! It’s at the point where it won’t even turn on. Well, it does, but it immediately powers off everything but the Red Ring of Death (RRoD). It sucks. I have been having some issue with the Xbox for some time know. Recently I wrote about how I was experiencing some […]

  • Now available in Bulgarian.

    As a Bulgarian I’m always excited when I see “[…] available in Bulgarian.” or simply a link titled “Bulgarian” linking to a Bulgarian version of whatever site I am on. Today, one of these sites I came across was WordPress.org. There are many Bulgarian communities around the world. To my knowledge the largest one is […]

  • XBox 360 no video, only audio

    Over the weekend I had some lack of video from my XBox360. Nothing that some heat couldn’t fix. Apparently most problems with the Xbox360 are fixed by that which kills PCs – heat. I have an XBox360, which is one of those that was born with bugs and “genetic” issue – meaning an early version […]

  • 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. […]

  • 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 […]
