Next Time your Brag about your IPhone remember this

Jul 21, 2014 by Author

People with IPhone's or IPads tend to be a little too proud of their devices.  What they don't understand is how they are being judged by people who actually know how to use a computer.


Great Chinese in Pearland TX Review

Great Chinese in Pearland TX Review

Jul 19, 2014 by Author

Recently my wife and I took our 4 year old out for Chinese.  The food was excellent although a 4 year old who hasn't napped does not do well in a environment lacking a PlaySet.  We have eat here before, though I don't remember the food being this good.  It had been more than 5 years since we had eaten there before ( since before the birth of my son ).

Pearland First Choice Emergency Room Monster Truck Ambulance

Pearland First Choice Emergency Room Monster Truck Ambulance

Jul 19, 2014 by Author

First Choice Emergency Room which is one of those Emergency rooms you find located in Strip Malls, just opened their doors for business in Pearland, TX.  The renovation to the building looks nice, though I hate to see what they would charge me for a visit.  Interestingly in front of their clinic is a Monster Truck Ambulance.  If you ever need medical care and are stuck in a place that is inaccessible to regular vehicles,  First Choice Emergency Room has your back.

ABCPDF error Failed to configure IE 9 or above for the MSHtml engine

Jul 6, 2014 by Author

I recently built a new server, and have been slowly migrating all my sites from my old box to the new one.  Some of the sites were built using third party components to do things like generate PDF documents.  ABCPDF by websupergoo, was one of the components I was using.  Unfortunately Version 6 of the component, does not play nice with Windows Server 2012 R2.  So I was forced to upgrade to the latest Version 9.1.  After installing the component I still was getting an error message.  Here is the fix.

Why Cloud hosting is not the value it seems

Jun 22, 2014 by Author

These days hosting providers are pushing their cloud offerings.  To the average consumer cloud hosting seems perfect. You only pay for the hardware you need, and when you need to expand its just a matter of your hostin g provider reallocating resources to your node on the cloud.  Then you also have the high availability and fault tollerance.  But one place clouds fail is in performance.

How to test your fax machine when nobody has a fax machine

How to test your fax machine when nobody has a fax machine

May 29, 2014 by Author

Recently I had to write a script that would connect to our VOIP provider and send a fax via their web form. The idea was to elminate the additional steps of logging into their system, navigating to the "Send a Fax" section then filling out the form and clicking send.  However once I had a script written I needed to test it.  Unfortunately nobody these days has a fax machine.  Thankfully I found a website that helped me out.

How Virtual Companies will Bankrupt America

Apr 2, 2014 by Author

Since I started working on websites some 15+ years ago, I have witnessed a huge change in technology which has taken the power away from the traditional larger companies and moved it to smaller companies.  However what I see is the potential for these smaller virtual companies to eventually bankrupt most large Municipalities.

Best Burger in Houston Review

Best Burger in Houston Review

Feb 18, 2014 by Author

Years ago a buddy of mine called me and said he was going to open a dive bar in midtown, and asked me to do the website for it.  This bar was Saint Danes located in Midtown Houston.  Until last weekend I had never eaten there.  He always encouraged me to come down, but my busy schedule always got in the way.  So after eating there I can honestly say they have the best Burger I have ever eaten.  Keep in mine I have tried burgers everywhere in Houston, including a few local stripclubs (which take pride in their food).  Saint Dane's has the best hands down.
