Professional copyright statements

Apr 16, 2009 in Philosophy

Today’s post is merely a pet peeve I have about the lack of concern people have about the copyright statement at the bottom of their sites and documents. I used the traditional publishing copyright statements since my foray into comic book publishing back in the 80s. Naturally, this becomes the default format I turn to when I write my copyright statements. It also makes me sound like a stickler about seemingly insignificant details.

MS Word has a Replace() VBA function?

Apr 13, 2009 in Technology

It astounds me that a company as large as Microsoft can’t develop better help systems to accompany their products.

“Holler at yer boy!”

If you’ve tried sending me email at anytime on April 4, 2009, there is a great chance that I didn’t receive it. I screwed up. Badly. I was trying to be smart, by modifying my DNS record and Host (A) settings to increase my privacy. However, I forgot to set up the MX record. To fix this will take more trouble than it’s worth, so I have restored my original DNS settings.

While the new settings are happily propagating the Internet, if you need to reach me, use the phone, facebook, or twitter. I will test the server settings later tonight, but I probably won’t be checking email at least until Monday.
