Statcounter Carnage -- Firsthand Look
This is what it looks like lately over here on my site ( Jan 17th was D-Day ). Not a pretty picture. In other news, I got a bad piece of fish from my local grocery store last night (name withheld to protect the guilty, err…innocent) and was up until sunrise “ refunding ” it. Today has...

Why Apple Makes a One Button Mouse
Via Slashdot ( full post here ): "There is a short article at Gear Live that tries to explain why Apple still sticks with a one button mouse . It points out the fact that although it is perfectly possible to use a two button mouse on a Mac for 7 years now, developers are forced to rethink their design... Read More...

Enterprise Library 2005 Released
As many have already reported, Microsoft has (at long last) released their Patterns and Practices Enterprise Library . Downloading and installing it now, can’t wait to see what it brings to the table. More to come as I play around with it…and kudos to the folks over at the PAG team! Read More...

Finally Forked Out Some Dough for a Real Domain
Bob recommended using GoDaddy to finally get myself a real domain name (not my first, but the first I actually intend to keep, I’ve used GKG for my previous registrar needs…their tools are horrid though, I didn’t realize how far the tools had come in the years since I used to use GKG…I...

If You Blog It, They Will Come
In a strange twist of fate, Google finally emailed me back concerning the de-indexing of my site, no doubt having read my previous post lightly chastising them (do I really believe they read it? No. Would I like to believe they did? Of course!). Message follows: Hi Jayson, Thank you for your note. We... Read More...

Don't Piss Google Off, It's a One Way Street
It’s been a little over a week since I was dropped from the Google index; I foolishly installed some compsci student’s code without reading the fine print over at the Google Terms of Service which mandate that if you write code that uses their index, you must invariably include the Google...

Apprentice Season 3 Predictions
That’s right folks, you heard it hear first (ok, maybe not first). Forgive the vagueness (18 (whoops, 17) candidates to get to know? I haven’t even lived that long yet…), but I really like the format this go round…street smarts versus book smarts. Seeing as I only did about a... Read More...

Blog Stats Take a Huge Dive -- Did Google Reindex?
[Update]: Apparently I am in violation of Google’s Free Search Agreement by adding my own custom search box querying google without including a Google logo. By the time I realized I needed to include the logo, it was already too late.. So, search removed…hopefully I’ll be reindexed... Read More...

Lightly Nerdy? Hmm...
I ran across this test a few days ago, thought it was silly, then everyone else posted their scores…so why not me as well. It’s not as high of a score as I would have thought…but that doesn’t necessarily mean I wanted a high score. Anywho, I have been branded as: Oh the irony... Read More...

Some Interesting Links, Plus What I've Been Up To
I’ve been inundated by recruiters lately (I think every recruiter in the free world got back from holiday on January 3rd, Outlook/the phone have been going non-stop since then…which of course is a good thing, but I’ve also been sick the majority of the new year which has made it tough...
