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.

Dec 22, 2013 by Author

One day my wife came home with a surprise.  While driving home she noticed one of the houses down the street had put a powerwheels vehicle out to the curb on trash day with a sign that said "FREE".  She quickly loaded it into the back of her car, and brought it home. Of course being it was destined for the trash, I figured it was going to be missing something important to function.  This story chronicles the Restoration of this PowerWheels Jeep to is former glory, and then beyound.

Why Annise Parker's Deal with Houston Stripclubs was the right Decision.

Why Annise Parker's Deal with Houston Stripclubs was the right Decision.

Dec 13, 2013 by Author

Annise Parker is a democrat which means I typically don't agree with her on much.  However with dealing with Houston's Human Trafficking problems, and Stripclub regulation, she made the right decision.  Many of the Bible Beaters are outraged by her decision.  Their goals would be to remove all Sin from Houston.  I see it in another light.

Considering an LTO Tape Drive for Backups

Considering an LTO Tape Drive for Backups

Dec 12, 2013 by Author

As I recently made some upgrades to my computer, I have started to realize that I might need a enterprise grade backup solution.  This doesn't mean shuttling the 4TB of data to the cloud.  This means something other than my Raid 5 hard disk array.  This has lead me to consider Tape as a cost effective backup solution.  In this article I explore the various options for Tape backup and their associated costs.

Are USB ASIC miners still worth it?

Are USB ASIC miners still worth it?

Dec 8, 2013 by Author

Months ago my ego told me to buy 20 USB ASIC miners, and start mining for bitcoin, but I instead restrained myself from this purchase.  Now looking back I regret not going ahead with my mining operation, as Bitcoin now hovers around $765 each.  At the time I was consideirng this, Bitcoin was around $82 each. But the question still remains.  Is it too late to get into the Bitcoin mining game?

Send a Text Message with Twilio using ASP.NET

Send a Text Message with Twilio using ASP.NET

Dec 4, 2013 by Author

I recently did a little integration with Twillio for one of my client's websites.  Along the way I had some learning experiences that I thought would be helpful to others.  I found Twilio's Sample code to be a little confusing, and the third party libraries and classes did not work for me.  So I wrote a simple function that sends a text message using twilio.  Hopefully this will help others.
