I wanted to wish everyone a very merry Christmas to all.
I hope everyone got what they wanted on their Christmas list...even IF Santa got a flat this year. :-D
It's that time of year again when everyone tries to figure out the direction of technology. Which way are we going?
But before we get to the 2011 predictions, we need to look back over the past year in technology for the results.
This has definitely been a great year for technology and it seems every year keeps hitting a bigger stride in the technology industry. Tablets, Cloud computing, and mobile operating systems were the latest trend this year.
Columbus, Ohio is experiencing their own "winter wonderland."
From a technology standpoint, if you are interested in looking at the traffic around Columbus right now or need to see where pile-ups are located, check out the BuckeyeTraffic.org web site.
Here are five lessons I learned from an intense three months of programming to complete seven projects
The last post I wrote was August 17th. Since then, I've been extremely busy with a load of projects.
For those of you who know me, you know there are times when I never slow down and go full steam towards a vision or goal no matter what the cost. These past months were no different whatsoever.
If you've been developing web sites for a while and keep up with the web, you may have noticed a recent upheaval with the IT industry regarding updating browsers...specifically Internet Explorer 6 (IE6).
Heck, I thought Microsoft had this taken care of with their updating process through Windows.
This was just too good of a deal to pass up. A 32GB USB Flash drive for $60.
YOU COULD EVEN INSTALL AN OPERATING SYSTEM ON THIS PUPPY!
If you still need convincing whether this is a great deal or not, consider this:
For those who haven't heard of this fantastic speaker, Randy Pausch was a Carnegie Mellon Professor and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His doctor said that he was expected to live around 3-6 months.
When he gave his "Last Lecture" on September 18, 2007, he focused on Achieving your Childhood Dreams instead of talking about his cancer.
His lecture is nothing short of monumental and is something everyone should watch and absorb. If you take his perspective on life, I guarantee you will be successful.
After a short time to get things back in order and getting some organization in my life, I'm starting to dig back into the site.
I'll be posting some new articles later in the week (Ahhh...I've missed the postings...)
Since I've been working at my full-time job (with overtime), working on two products, four websites, and continuing to work with my existing 15 clients, I've been trying to make time for DCS Media.
Unfortunately, there is only so much time in a day.
I will be taking a short hiatus from blogging. This includes Fireday as well.
I've recently received an email from an individual asking me why I'd use an RSS feed as opposed to a regular email?
I've been using RSS since I've started my Micro ISV blog, but for those who don't know what an RSS feed is, I'll refer you to my Beginner's Guide To RSS.
Using a blog system, whether it's WordPress, TypePad, or Blogger, when a new article or post is published, the system automatically generates an RSS feed of your latest posts to an XML file. Your audience uses their Feed Reader to read that file and translate the format into something readable.
