So I lied. A few other things have happened in the last couple of months. I’ve released a third beta for ShutOff 2010, and new versions of the Password Generator 2010, Simple Lotto Number Generator 2010, and the ShutOff 20×0 registry cleaner. Simple HexConverter 2010 is also almost ready for release. Yes, I sold outContinue reading Ok, I lied
I’d like to tip my hat to Sibusiso Mtshali, an officer in the Douglasdale Police Station, for taking me through the fingerprinting and form completion for my police clearance certificate. He was fast, very professional, and even took me to the financial officer to pay my R59. Parking was good, the station was clean (ifContinue reading Douglasdale SAPS FTW
I am impressed. I have the 60GB iPod Photo. I got it in 2005 with a Firewire connection, and it’s still going strong. Impressive.
We have an electrified fence running around the top of the wall that surrounds our complex. This is a standard feature of living in Johannesburg. I’d sooner have razor wire, and this post is part of the reason why. Since electrifying the wire would consume an unaffordable amount of electricity (notwithstanding the upcoming Eskom tariffContinue reading Electric fence
I hit a snag with the release of ShutOff 2010, which is pushing the release date into next year. Fortunately, the majority of the work is done. I’m hitting my head against having to support Windows prior to Windows XP.
I’m presently consolidating all my user data from various computers and backups I’ve taken over the past year or so, and am horrified to find that my personal data is almost 100GB in total. Granted, some of this is customer-related, but 100GB is a hell of a lot of data!
I just told the lawyers (see previous entry) that I’d be willing to sell my company to them, including the rights to NCANE.COM and ShutOff 20×0. It’ll cost less than suing me. Let’s see what they say.
In 2004 I created a joint venture with a friend called Intelligent Technology Solutions. Today I got an email from a company who also uses the abbreviation “ITS”, telling me to hand over my domain (at my own cost) to them, and cease use of the trademark. Huh? WTF?
My blog-entry-turned-article, Deep Share: Start The Revolution With Me, has become more relevant now, with Google offering real-time search. We are embarking on a massive paradigm shift in how the Internet is used. This is truly an exciting time to be alive. Add to this the news from various sources that the deep web (a.k.a.Continue reading Deep Share and Real-Time Search
Thanks to the assistance of Hetzner Africa and Internet Solutions, as well as other people with whom I am not acquainted, a local company who sent out a mailshot (which I received more than once and therefore constitutes spam) has been reprimanded. Said company, in one of the many emails between Hetzner, myself and theContinue reading Spammer, be gone!
