    Time to Let Go. My Email Will Be Changing

    This weekend is time to go on a domain purge. Turns out all my domains for up for renewal in January and all 25 of them auto renew making January, already an tight months worse. I have a collection of 25 different domain names which I've gathered over the years. While the NxFifteen domains are not going anywhere there are plenty of others that can be allowed to lapse. This post is to serve as Read More...

    the Dangers of Open Spots

    All over the web you will see people telling you the internet is an unsafe place to be, but the biggest danger doesn't come from some one sitting at home intercepting your connection to your bank or Facebook.

    It's come again, a new year brings with it a flood of new year resolutions. It's far from original but in 2015 I'm jumping back on the treadmill and MyFitnessPal. I've been paying no attention to what I eat or do since getting back from last year's skiing holiday, so with another skiing holiday fast approaching it's time to decide what I want from this attempt at fitness an Read More...
