Just wrote a new article for the (free) Business Friends Network on Facebook.
Meet Joe the gardener, who argues with his wife over suitcase chicken and the blue chip corporate CEO who strangely spends money on departmentalising buns. Now why is that do you think?

It’s been a difficult week for mere mortals!
The Stomper girls have rallied up their golf club chums to affiliate promote their web 2.0 course to death. One affiliate even tried to sucker me in by offering me a job IF I had taken the course. Of course that is the exact same offer he made his other 1.28 million spam list, so I have a 1 in 1.28 million chance of working mainly for free. Erm whoopee! (I can do that now, without your blessing, so no thanks)
Certainly the budget Hollywood video production (complete with bad audio edits that an 8 year old could do better) was certainly erm. erm. “interesting” and “entertaining“.
(You do know Hollywood films are mainly fiction, right?)

I bought a software product from a renowned Internet marketing development company.
It basically worked, which is always a great start, but then I noticed something. The configuration file, which housed all the database connections including the database password, was PLAIN TEXT.
You don’t have to be technical to know that a plain text file can be read by anybody.
So all someone needed to do was type in Read the rest of this entry »
Fran Tarkenton NFL Quarterback:
Fran Tarkenton is an NFL Quarterback with a place in the NFL Hall of Fame
Here is a small video tribute site to some of his incredible achievements…
Of course, Fran has one of the hardest last names in the world to remember to spell…
With many NFL fans also calling him Tarkington, thus occupying Google search positions 1 and 8 simultaneously. I guess just “Fran the Tank” was too much to ask for 😉
