I have decided to move my blog off the free WordPress site and over to my own domain that I have been paying for for years, but have left sitting dormant. This move will allow me to have a lot more freedom with my blog. For instance, I can customize the theme and add fun little widgets that the free site did not offer. All of my previous posts will be transferred to that site. I will be doing a giveaway pretty soon too!
Last month at the Libertek’s Smalbany conference, Rose and I met Michael Haley from Squiggout. He runs a local hosting company in Clifton Park, and made a great impression on us when we spoke with him. His products were quite impressive as well, and we decided that we would give him our business.
So, I am going to be migrating over to that site over the next few days. I will keep everything here and check in from time to time, but future posts will be written over there. Please be sure to subscribe while you’re over there. See ya soon!

I am sitting here thinking about this blog I read over at Gizmodo yesterday and I am baffled. Over the weekend, someone ‘found’ a prototype iPhone on the floor in a bar. They took it apart and put it on the web to show what the guts looked like and what it had that the previous version did not. Some say it is a hoax and others think it is the real deal. But Apple wants it back. Now.
What gets me is that this one blog now has over 6 millions hits. 6 MILLION! That is insane! I can’t believe that one little post can generate that much traffic. Send some my way, will ya? It just confirms that there are a serious amount of Apple fans out there. I hear the iPhone is cool, but this is a little over the top. I don’t have one personally, because I am a Verizon customer and wont switch. However, I have heard that it is coming to Verizon pretty soon, so I may check it out.
I have to be totally honest – I have never even held an iPhone in my hand. Blasphemy, you say? Perhaps. I have nothing bad to say about them, but wont consider it until Verizon carries it and my two year contract is up. I will admit that I am a little jealous of all the things it can do compared to my Blackberry. There are so many apps that are made for the iPhone exclusively that sound really cool.
The next thing I think about with the iPhone is do I really want a phone with more stuff to do? I spent ridiculous amounts of time on my Blackberry as it is. I would never get anything done. I get scolded all the time now for using the phone at the dinner table or while hanging out with friends. I would be in trouble all the time even more than I already am.
What I want to know is was this a hoax? Did the guy who ‘lost’ the prototype lose his job as so many assumed he would on Monday? Is this a clever marketing trick from Apple? What do you think?
…are burning out of my head. It’s a little after 2am and I am still up and fooling around with my computer. After almost 2 months, I have my computer back. The problem turned out to be the hard drive. The computer would not restart or even re-install Windows before. I replaced the hard drive and realized that I don’t have a Windows Vista disc to install the program on my computer because it came pre-installed on the computer when I got it. So, I found a Dell Windows XP disc and got it to work.
I finally got Windows XP installed on the computer and my internet wouldn’t work. I had to go to HP’s website and download all the drivers and software for the necessary HP functions to work. It worked out, and I am now connected to the net. I am not really happy about going back to XP, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
So, does anyone out there have a Windows Vista install CD? I have my own Product Key that came with this computer, so it’s totally legit. Would even take a Windows 7 install CD if you had one kicking around and an extra license. Just sayin….
I am going to bed now. My eyes are crossing…See ya soon!
