October 21st, 2011 - Apple, How To, Reviews, Thoughts & Rants

If you are like me and you might have some friends who have extension numbers, or simply use something like Skype local calling (a local number, that you can dial to call international using your skype account), you want to make sure that your cell phone supports complex dial strings. I keep all my contacts […]

Really cool 404 page on GitHub

January 20th, 2011 - CSS, Javascript, Reviews, Thoughts & Rants

Well I happened to stumble over this fancy shmancy 404 page today at GitHub, and I must say it is simplistic, yet VERY impressive (maybe its the whole starwars thing) but I really like the simple 3D effect that is created by using layered images. Try it yourself, go to: https://github.com/thispagenotfound And move your mouse […]

Blagojevich finally kicked off Celebrity Apprentice

April 5th, 2010 - In the News, Reviews, Thoughts & Rants

I really liked last nights episode of the Celebrity Apprentice, and I’m happy to say good riddance to Rod Blagojevich.  He is an insult to being a Governor, the state of Illinois should be shocked to have had that fraud as someone in power.  I really believe that the way someone behaves under a task […]

Need to benchmark your website?

March 22nd, 2010 - Cool Apps, Reviews

I ran into this issue after suggesting clients to use godaddy.com for the longest time. I honestly feel bad now that in an effort to ‘save a buck’ I funneled clients to this giant of a company to only find months later poor customer support and a web hosting setup starved of any resources they […]
