Sometimes one could become so comfortable with something, that one becomes blind to the underlying technology. Such was the case with me a few days ago when I was trying to delete an IP address from one Linux node on the network and assign it to another. The problem was that the new node would — Continue reading ยป

Google Lifeblood

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Google,Hacking,Web         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Like most people who have a Web site I check my site's ranking on Google SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) from time to time. It's striking how much of a Website's life depends on Google. That's particularly true with smaller sites whose lifeblood is the traffic Google sends their way. But even bigger sites would — Continue reading ยป

High-Tech Sales Pitches

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Business,Marketing         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

So today I'm at my desk in the office fiddling with a new Web accelerator toy, er appliance, and I get the dreaded call transfer from the front desk. The Web caching box must've had fried my common sense and I took the call. It was a sales pitch. People who call my number at — Continue reading ยป

RSS ATOM Widget Utility

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Web         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

For the longest time, I've been wanting to create a simple feed widget to place on a web page and have it display links from the syndicated site. Easier dreamt than done, until this thanksgiving weekend when I decided to partially put the long holiday to good use and write up a widget tool. It's — Continue reading ยป

Web Hosting Customer Service

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Business,Web         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Here's the brilliant idea for today. Why don't the hosting companies let the right representatives answer their customers' questions, instead of letting customers waste time with their less trained agents? I've been helping a friend setup a site on one of the nationally known web hosting sites, and I must say getting the right answer — Continue reading ยป

Pink Floyd Do Goody-Good Bull-Censor

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Social         ๐Ÿ—จ One Comment

Being a classic rock fan, when I'm not listening to NPR, my car radio is usually tuned to one of the classic rock stations in the area. A while back I started to notice that a lyric line from the Pink Floyd song, Money, was being censored. You know the line: Money, it's a hit.Don't — Continue reading ยป

Recycling Grocery Store Bags

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Environment         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Years ago when I lived in Germany for a short time, most people used their own canvass bags when grocery shopping. Initially I attributed that to the European environmental consciousness, which is probably somewhat correct. But then I found out that grocery stores charged for their bags and most people probably didn't want to pay — Continue reading ยป
