The most expensive iPod ever

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

I have an iPod Touch.  Before family or friends or co-workers start to give me a hard time about it because I vowed not to buy one, I want to tell you that I didn't buy it.  Well, I didn't buy it directly.  Let me tell you about the iPod ...

What’s in a Google PageRank ranking?

Sunday, October 28th, 2007

Google recently revamped or altered or changed its PageRank.  Those that suffered from the change are blogging negatively about it.  Those that didn't feel a change are probably blogging negatively about it.  I got my first ranking for this domain name, so I like it!  True, I only have a ...

HDMI is better than coaxial or RGB

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Recently at work we had a Vizio plasma TV installed in the lobby/entry area.  The problems are 1) the Vizio plasma got burn-in after about 30 minutes of being on (ya, really); 2) HDMI cable wasn't readily available for the length required.  Now I don't usually take pictures at work ...

Sony Ericsson K850i

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Ya, I'm still looking for the perfect cell phone.  I'm thinking that this shouldn't be so difficult a process and I should just do what friends and co-workers do and just buy a phone and then get a new one in 3-6 months so it doesn't matter if you don't ...

Phone reality

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

I've been thinking of getting a new phone.  Right now the decision is whether I should be getting something like the Nokia E70, AT&T 8525, Apple iPhone, or some HTC product.  The truth is that there are so many different devices available that making a decision can be very easy ...

Titanic watch

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

While surfing around the Internet I found a watch that I was sure would be sold out or unavailable by this time.  The watch was announced in the beginning of the year and now, almost near the end of the year, it's still available.  I think.  I can't find how ...

Newest Scottrade millionaire

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

I do some stock trading and have a couple accounts in different places.  One place that I have an account is Scottrade, and if they were to follow through with what their website reads, I would open up more accounts there.  The problem appears to be a mathematical one, which ...

Microsoft Exchange random NDR

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

NDR = Non Delivery Report So why does that matter to you?  Well, if you are responsible for an Exchange server, and for some reason you are told about random undeliverable messages, this will matter a lot.  I recently had an employee tell me about problems having her emails delivered, so ...

Cleanliness in appearance

Monday, September 24th, 2007

When looking for help from others, make things clean when possible.. Here's what I mean.  I was looking for assistance on an ASP/SQL question and gave the code from my page (which is manipulate for colors when viewing in DreamWeaver or Visual Studio) to a friend, who was viewing the ...
