From Tablet to Table

Microsoft innovation at work, for the FPS porn lover, 5 years in the making: Microsoft Surface. Not bad news, at least they are providing a complete solution. Complete in a way that they are now providing a table to put all your other Microsoft consumer gadget failures like Zune, MSN WebTV, collection of PocketPC’s, Origami, Microsoft [...]

Thank you NOLA!

Wow, what an exciting few days it has been!!! I’m back from New Orleans and the SBS Migration ITPRO Conference where I got to hang out with a few of my great friends, see what an impact my work really has on my partner’s customers day-to-day (got a little “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy), learn [...]

Big ain’t so easy

One of the comments I receive really often from vladville.com is the one from young entrepreneurs that follow what I do and how I do it. The emails are very flattering, everything from “I want to be where you are in 10 years” to “You keep on motivating me to do better” and so on [...]

I love this State

The other day I was looking through Facebook that Susanne pulled me onto, looking at pictures of my high school and college buddies. Can’t believe that it’s been 10 years since I graduated from high school, my how time flies. I have to say I am really happy where my life is at this point. [...]

Burning out

As I sit here at about 11am on a Monday, having wasted the entire weekend coding Shockey Monkey, I’m literally looking for excuses not to do any work on it. I’ve read virtually every blog over and over, there is nothing interesting (read: cheap enough) on eBay and my task list is packed with gargantual modules that will [...]

I’ve been, in one shape or form, involved in technical support throughout my professional career. While nothing will ever quite come close to the days at CyberGate where we had to walk people through creating Winsock connection scripts, there are times where a tech support can just make your day. Usually you’re trying to help [...]

Dave Plays Ball (Part Deux)

Extended post that I’m keeping off Vladville to keep it clean. (and keep JimmyJoeBob’s heart pressure under control) This, in case you’re wondering, is how you make it big. No, it’s not by buying used garbage off eBay, tying up freeware and thinking you’ve got ExchangeDefender. What’s even funnier is that some people have such a tiny window through which they view [...]

Cleaning out Web 2.0 Desktop

Spent some time earlier tonight just cleaning up my IM buddy list and trimming out the people that I never/rarely talk to. Spent some time weeding out the RSS feeds from people that haven’t blogged stuff in ages or blog about absolute crap, much like what you’re reading right now. Went into LinkedIn last night and [...]

DFWV Friday’s

I’m starting to lose count of just how long ago I started this business but one of my biggest pet peeves are the late night infomercials where people pitch their “be your own boss” schemes. More like be your own slave. It’s even more hilarious to hear stories from my developer friends, who don’t put [...]
