I’m going to be honest. I’m going to share a bit of reality with you. I’ll be transparent, to a point. The cost of being a person of integrity is a high cost. To say anything else would not be the most honest thing to share with you. Now, being transparent doesn’t mean I can… Read more
In my technology career, I often had (even still “have”) people ask me about the differences between a fresh install (what would be considered a “normal” software/application installation) and what has been called a “clean install.” Actually, the term “clean install” is not one that is heard in the normal population that often.

He walked into my office and said, “You hurt her feelings last week!” I looked up from my work with a question mark clearly on my face. Hurt her feelings? The reference was to a situation where I had actually helped the employee in another department, at least in my view. I served as director… Read more
I am a big believer in respecting people and treating people with equality, and sometimes (especially in the marketing field) there is so much hype and teaching about how to persuade someone they need something that they do not need. It is refreshing to read about building trust instead of manipulating people’s emotions. And, that is what I did this week, while reading “Flawless Consulting” by Peter Block.
AeroLife uses the technology of air, in a safe air-based (no gases, etc.) system to provide you with nutrients that include vitamins, supplements, and tasty flavors. It works safely, cleanly, and very fast (I can attest to that!).
When gently drawing in the air, using the dispenser, the nutrients are drawn into the system and immediately start to help you feel refreshed (AeroLife Entergy); relaxed (AeroLife Sleep); or prepares you to fight off the nasty cold and flus that sometimes creep up on us during this season (AeroLife Immune).
I remember, years ago, before it was “cool” (or necessary) to have a fully functional home office, shopping for “just the right phone” to cover all of our business needs. At the time, we were running a domain registration and hosting site and were quite popular with our “high quality, affordable services” rates. However, this motto required that we use the phone to be available to our customers 24/7 and, in our own home, with what would work like a commercial phone. It was nearly an impossible feat to find one that had ALL of the features we needed, without changing our motto to “high quality, NON-affordable services.”
I had the opportunity to try out the ErgoGrip for tablets (by ErgoGrip). It really is a fabulous, easy-to-use tablet accessory. Comfort First The basis for the development of the ErgoGrip, according to the manufacturer, was to create comfort grips for the user to hold onto during those long periods of using the tablet. It… Read more

Top-Down Network Design (3rd Edition) by Priscilla Oppenheimer
This is an exceptional book for Systems Programmers, or Systems Administrators wanting to dig deep into the Network Design aspect. In many cases, the Systems person may not feel that they need to know more about network design because they either 1) know it all already (Come on people, we always have room to grow!), or 2) do not plan to delve into the network side of technology and would prefer to stay on the “Systems” side of the equation.
