Laundry Day

Everybody hates laundry, but that’s no reason not to do it. Earlier this week I was meeting with a colleague who has designed a massive site for a large and ever-evolving organization.  The site has been built; the code is working; everything is ready to go, but they still haven’t launched yet.  Why?  Because the [...]

Perception Is Reality

Perception is reality...don’t let anyone sell you on anything else. So why not alter perception to your advantage? I pulled into my local gym the other day, noticing an ever increasing phenomenon...a powerful indicator of human awareness, or more accurately---the lack of it.

A CloudFlare Out

Is CloudFlare A Myth? I’ve bounced back and forth on Cloud Flare’s free CDN (content delivery network) service for the better part of a year. Every now and then, I’d configure a website with Cloud Flare and the best of intentions. It is after all supposed to protect websites from downtime and add a layer [...]

Winning The Domain Lottery

Back in the mid-1990's (or more fondly, "ancient times" as we know the internet ages at the same pace of a dog), I had a fine civil servant's job in Sonoma County, CA. And like everyone else I'd found myself quite amused by the new internet and my Mac Performa (rockin' the 4 megs of RAM, [...]

Joomla: My Recent Descent Into Hell

I recently secured a small project helping a fellow small business owner update his existing website. That's right, as a WordPress fanboy I stepped up to the challenge of Joomla. Now everyone knows that the expression "It's not that hard" often turns out to be famous last words. Just as it's not that hard to replace [...]

NaturallySpeaking 11: A 2-Minute Review-Is It Worth It?

After watching David Pogue’s New York Times video review/commentary of the new NaturallySpeaking 11 software I decided it was time to finally take the plunge. I’d been and contemplating it for quite some time but could never quite rationalize making the purchase. After Mr. Pogue’s review it seemed like a bit of a no-brainer for [...]

Apple Victimized By Its Own Success

Like millions of others, I spent a portion of my day struggling to find a worthwhile feed/stream from the iPad debut. At one point I found myself on a website listening to audio being piped in via a cell phone with the corresponding video relying on a video feed from ANOTHER website. And even then, [...]
