I hope this one works out nicely, the last ones were find, but were a bit expensive at $90, and all I could do was limited PHP stuff. The new one I am going though is only $5 a month, and I have more access to it, I can setup servlets and struts bases stuff[…]
I am probably one of the few, but I miss the old non-web internet. What is the non-web internet you might ask, that would be irc, usenet, etc. There are several protocols that existed on the internet, and were used and even existed before http (the web).

Not much, the “biggest” part of the update is linking to my FB profile, my G+ profile, and linking in my tweets from Twitter. Also I dug up my old Delicious account and cleaned up the links in it a bit, going to start using it again. Next on my task list for internet todo[…]
Remember when blogs were the thing (kind of funny to ask that on a blog) well I have moved my RSS reading from a program to Google Reader so I can not only read it on my computer but also I installed the Google Reader on my Android Phone so I can keep up with[…]

Since the Addon Akismet is dong a great job of filtering out all the spam, I am going to open up older posts to comments, still if a comment is not caught by Akismet it still needs to be moderated. But since I don’t have to do as much moderation with Akismet getting all the[…]
I hope every one that reads my site likes it. Just a new theam added to manage our it looks. I personally like it much better then the old view.
