Bertrand Russell's Message to the Future
Intellectual: Look only and solely at what are the facts.
Moral: Love is wise, hatred is foolish.
The four agreements
1. Be Impeccable with your word.
2. Don't take anything personally.
3. Don't make assumptions.
4. Always do your best.
It has been a struggle to build this company and because of that it sure is a good feeling to see our clients raving about our work. Check out our twitter blog and facebook page.
Internet Relay Chat
You can often times find me in IRC (that's Internet Relay Chat) on the Freenode.net network. I typically go by the handles GypsyScotty or j0zf and will most likely be hanging out in our company's chat room #ApogeeINVENT. Another IRC channel I like to hang out in is the Idaho State Linux User's Group or #ISLUG. For the beginner internet relay chat users here is a list of IRC commands that can be used in IRC clients.
Music, I listen to it, pick it apart, understand it, and enjoy the way that it can make the back of my mind tingle. Here is a sample of some of the music I listen to. I'll add more to this list from time to time.
A Wanna Be Hacker
I spent pretty much all of my teenage years as a wanna-be hacker. I war-dialed most of the phone numbers within calling range. I wrote a hexeditor and game hacks. I made graphic demos in x86 assembler. I ran my own local Bulletin Board System "The Underground". My BBS started out on a Commodore 64, and by the time the internet was starting to become a reality I had scaled the bbs hardware up to a 486 DX-2 66. I thought I was cool and I often boasted of my talents. Who knows, but if I keep at it then maybe someday I'll know half as much as I thought I did.
My Research on Up-Scaling High Traffic Websites
July 10th 2009 - j0zf
Due to the demand of some of our large clients and high-traffic websites I've been putting a lot of focus on researching just how exactly one might scale up a website or series of websites to handle things like: Very high traffic, Redundancy, Mitigation of Dataloss, Fail-over systems to minimize down-time, and PCI-Compliance to keep card holders safe and credit card companies happy.
