Tomorrow I have an early meeting... so I need to be getting to bed. I'm covering one meeting while my sales manager covers another.
Today we teamed up for a sales meeting with a potential client in a town about a 2 hour drive from our office.
Four hours of driving with him.
He's a great guy and a real "bend-over-backward for a client" type of sales manager...
...but on a personal level... he's like my dad. He tells the same stories over, and over, and over...
Do you know someone like that? I mean, the 2nd time I hear a story I nod and smile... but the third and fourth times I have trouble not saying... "*ahem*... I... can.. finish this story for you..."
Tomorrow will be a productive day. :)
My Dad does that too... I try not to get annoyed, but damn he does it daily. *shrugs*
But congratulations on the great day!!!
There was this one time when I was in Kabul...lol. Yeah, I have heard a million it seems in the military and most have about the same theme, so they start to sound alike. Patience brother, patience.
My grandpa does that but he starts the same story trails off then about 5 minutes later continues telling the story. At that point I just tune him out smile and nod when I need to, and hope his memory doesn't go when he's driving me around. lol
Going Green is more than an idea; it is an initiative for us. It is one of our main criteria for product recommendation, product usage and the partnerships we sign into.
Our web hosting data center is 100% powered by renewable, wind energy, which makes our hosting not only the most cost-effective you will find, but the most Earth friendly around.
This commitment prevents the release of 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year. That is equivalent to planting nearly 2,390 acres of trees, or removing 510 cars from the road.
That is why we’ve said, “Go Green, Save Green.”
Solid State is great, but it is not perfect, folks.
It saddens me when a customer brings in an SD card with important pictures that has been corrupted... somehow. Not just a file corruption, but a flat-out hardware failure on the card. It cannot be addressed or seen by any reading device.
Unless she is willing to pay hundreds, if not thousands for a hardware recovery, those pictures are gone.
Sometimes things that are unavoidable happen... but if the pictures you just took are only on the memory card in your camera, it is just as good as only having them on your hard drive. Or only having them on a CD. Nothing is perfect and without multiple backups, you are risking losing the irreplaceable....
We have inexpensive hardware back-up solutions. We have inexpensive off-site backup solutions.
$100 for a USB drive or $25/year for webspace is getting away cheap when you consider the cost of recovering what could be lost... or the heartbreak of losing it in the first place.
...showing Morri what our FTP application is capable of. Showing synched files, synching folder navigation between a remote server and local directories, one-button file transfer to a remote server. It gives you more control over what you move and what you back-up than an automated program - you get pure copies that can be copied back, not an encrypted back-up that would need to be restored...
It's pretty darn easy.

I learned something today!
I had no idea it could do that. WOOH! Now I can be more lazy and NOT get screwed over by it. Friggin' sweet.
So uh... What do I have to do to get my hands on one of those sweet ass MP3 player stereos? The apartment could use some good music.
You'll have to quit. Employees aren't eligble...
...but I can rehire you a week later... for the entry level pay rate, of course... :p
The new ads are running.
Rock & roll!
...I'm not in a story telling mood, but I put some pictures from my trip in my portfolio.
As I always say... enjoy them, or don't. It's always in the eye of the beholder...
