Here comes another attack on the free and democratic way of life. the SOPA/PIPA bill sponsored by congressman Lamar Smith is about to be voted on by the legislators. On the surface, the goal is to protect copyrights and intellectual property rights on the Internet. In reality this law is created to bring the Internet — Continue reading ยป

Amazon vs. eBay on Tax Collection

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Business,Internet     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

    So after all the bloviating and firing affiliates whose home states wanted to collect sales taxes from Amazon, suddenly it is talking fair taxation. Where was the fairness when Amazon was (and still is) crushing small business all across the country? I don't like Amazon to begin with anyways, but I hope eBay — Continue reading ยป

Block China Web Traffic

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Hacking,Internet,Web     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Sometimes I'm so tempted to to do this:ย Block China Web Traffic IP Addresses and Chinese Hackers. Of course if everyone blocked everyone elseย indiscriminatelyย that would go against the spirit of the Internet. What's needed is for the ISPs to get off their lazy and greedy butts and block attacks at their sources. Certainly a bunch of — Continue reading ยป

To the couple of visitors of this website, I'm sorry for the 2-day outage earlier this week. It was a DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack and I never found out who was behind it and why. The problem started in the early morning hours with an outage alert from the remote monitoring service. The — Continue reading ยป

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Internet     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ One Comment

The general understanding is that DSL isn't hobbled by the number of subscribers like cable service is. That is, no matter how many people jump on DSL at any given moment, their speed should remain constant. I used to believe that too, but lately itโ€™s beginning to look like there's a hole in that theory. — Continue reading ยป

Amazon Spoils The Party

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Financial,Internet     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

I don't know, maybe it's poetic justice or just karma that Amazon should report disappointing results tonight with earnings well below estimates. Why? After I was labeled a cheater and was terminated from the Amazon Associates program, I had hoped for a little payback. I certainly did my part by vowing never to buy anything — Continue reading ยป

The Older Chrome Browser

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

I love how the 1&1 login page depicts my Chrome browser as "older browser version". Ironically my Chrome version is the Dev channel. Can't get much newer than that ๐Ÿ™‚ chrome browser,1&1 — Continue reading ยป

Network Solutions Domain Renewals

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

I don't know if Network Solutions (netsol) is anymore the biggest domain registrar on the Internet. That title may now belong to GoDaddy. But one thing is for certain, Network Solutions seems desperate. Ok, just saw this on domain registrars and now it's clear. The other day I called Network Solutions after having trouble taking — Continue reading ยป
