At long last, World of Warcraft has been released in Beta form and I can finally post my experiences about the Alpha. Many people have asked me why the updates in the last few months have been "few and far between." World of Warcraft was the answer that I could not tell anyone about due to a legal and binding agreement to not disclose that the game even existed. I have been been enjoying the game since December 24, 2003. More information can be discovered on the World of Warcraft [Continue Reading]
After scratching my head for awhile, I finally found the cause of why the domain has not been accessible all day. Everything should be up and running again. I appreciate your patience.
Due to my overly aggressive banning of certain web site tools from connecting to my web server, I mistakenly blocked access to W3’s validation service. I reference this service on my Browser Compatibility Page. Since I recommend adhering to web standards and the use of standard compliant browsers, I feel this service is much more valuable to my readers in helping them understand the reason for web standards. Once again, the link is valid and the service is no longer forbidden access. Even though no reader brought this to my [Continue Reading]
In this news update, I wanted to touch on several things that have been bouncing around in my head the last several days. Even though I would like more than anything for the information to be short, it did not turn out that way. This news update turned into an expanded Rant topic and I pretty much ran out of time to post information about my other issues. So, a short take on only one of them is included here and the next update will include additional issues. Here we [Continue Reading]
In the last several days, I have done much to try and figure out how to increase the performance of, not only the domain, but the network in general. After plenty of testing, I have been leaning in the direction that the domain is not being slowed down by the available bandwidth, but the firewall’s filtering performance. In the next few days, I will do even more testing to ensure that is the case. If it is, I will modify the networks configuration for a much higher capacity of packet [Continue Reading]
The network modifications are mostly complete. Connectivity to the domain will still be intermittent for the next 36 hours while my new DNS information is sent around the internet. I appreciate all of my readers patience while this transition is taking place.
Traffic is starting to roll into the new IP addressing. I appreciate all of my readers patience while this transition is taking place.
My ISP has completed transferring me over to a different network connection. As a result, connectivity to the domain will be sporadic, at best, for the next 24 – 72 hours while the DNS server information is sent throughout the internet.
My ISP is in the progress of transferring me over to a different network connection. As a result, connectivity to the domain will be sporadic, at best, for the next 72 hours. However, during this transition, I will also take the opportunity to reconfigure my internal network. I am not exactly sure what I am going to do with it, but I have several plans of attack. I will have to wait and see what works best after I get a few more details from my ISP. Maybe even an [Continue Reading]
Originally drafted July 27, 2003, I have refrained from posting this particular web page because of the title I picked: Free Beer! However, I feel this information needs to get out to those people that need it. Now, obviously, I am not offering free beer or ever going to on this web site or any other. However, I have placed this web page here for educational purposes to guide my readers in understanding the various Social Engineering techniques that are out today, and attempt to get you to do something [Continue Reading]
