Google's GrandCentral

    πŸ“‚ Google,Technology,Web         πŸ—¨ No Comments

The other day I received an email from GrandCentral with the subject line: Invitation to sign up for GrandCentral. Like everyone else I receive plenty of bogus invitations to sign up for this or register for that. It smelled like spam. "Who the hell is GrandCentral?", I thought. But before clicking the spam button, I — Continue reading Β»

As some of you know, this site contains several utilities in the tools section. One of these tools is JavaScript Visitor IP Address and Host Name.

Answers.com Creative Writing Challenge

I'd almost forgotten about this, but an email notification from answers.com reminded me that I had entered the first-ever answers.com's creative writing challenge a couple of weeks ago.

Gmail Inbox Changes

    πŸ“‚ Email,Google         πŸ—¨ No Comments

Beginning about 3 or 4 days ago I've noticed a change in the way Gmail groups emails together. It seems to be a subtle algorithm change but it appears that the glue has been watered down a bit. Email messages definitely don’t hang together the way they used to. Now many come In as separate — Continue reading Β»

Ditch Your DBA Today?

    πŸ“‚ Computers         πŸ—¨ No Comments

I'm not sure about you, but this ad on a tech site sort of got under my skin. The company claims that this product obviates having a DBA (Database Administrator) managing your databases. As a sign of respect to all DBA's I obscured the company and their product name. Obviously the message is to get — Continue reading Β»

Answers Buys Dictionary

    πŸ“‚ Financial         πŸ—¨ No Comments

I guess you can call this another case of over-inflated pricing for domain names. Answers.com has agreed to acquire Lexico, the parent of dictionary.com, thesaurus.com, and reference.com for $100 million.
