Google Apps PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 28 May 2009 02:04

I've had a few clients using Google Apps and have been interested in trying it out in large part because Gmail allows the sending of large files via email, something that ISPs and most hosting setups don't permit... and with good reason. Sending large files on via email takes up a lot of bandwidth that is needed for email itself. But for anyone involved in Graphic Design and/or requiring the sending/receiving of large files as a regular part of business, this is a great feature to have. Until recently I have not had time to get it all installed for any of my own domains, and I wanted to try it out for myself as well.

Serendipitous Moments PDF Print E-mail

Every once in a while something occurs which makes one wonder just how much in the universe had to line up in order for it to occur in just the way it did.

When I work late, which is often, I recently started listening to old Jean Shepherd recordings, many made from his WOR radio days back in the 60s and 70s. I downloaded a number of these from www.flicklives.com, and have enjoyed listening to them as they bring back fond memories of the many nights I spent early in my marriage listening to his shows live. My ex worked nights and we didn't own a TV for a couple of years, so this was my entertainment when I was home alone.

Changes... PDF Print E-mail

If you've been here before, you'll notice that this blog looks different from what it used to. This is not the final design, only an interim version while I try to fit in recreating my main site in a new design. Once that's done, I'll update this site to match it. Only problem is finding the time to do it--work has been really busy, which I consider a great blessing, but it hasn't left me any time for working on my own sites.

I knew that making the change from the old Joomla version to the most recent version was not going to be an easy task, but when the old site also suffered from an attack by the Gumblar trojan on the old servers where it used to reside, it forced my hand to do something about it. That attack is a whole other story better left for another article, suffice to say that sometimes fate takes a hand and makes us make the changes we need to make. Because of the problems and the risk of infection it just made sense to do this manually, despite the extra time it would take. Slowly but surely I've manually been moving articles in from the old database when I have a few moments, but there is a lot of stuff still missing like the many links I'd collected. I'll add those in later.

In the meantime, I will finally be able to start adding material again. There has been a lot lately that I've wanted to add, but with the site out of commission I couldn't do so. Now that this is back up and running, albeit with much still to be added back in, I'll be able to add new material as the mood takes me.

 
 
Backups for Your Data PDF Print E-mail

Reading an article called "The Ultimate Web Developer's Christmas List", I came across this one nugget that will be a great thing for anyone who needs to make sure their data is safe. It's called Mozy.

Using Mozy, you can store up to 2GB of data FREE. As they state on their website, "No setup fee, no credit cards, no expiration, no hassle." For $4.95/month you can store as much data as you want online. That kind of price can't be beat, considering what it would cost to restore the data from a hard drive gone bad. All your family pictures, etc., can all be stored where they won't be lost if your hard drive crashes.

For businesses the pricing setup is a bit different, you can read more about it on the website. But for a nominal cost you get peace of mind, knowing your data is safe.
