Spring Clean Up!

I just spent the last half hour going through the server removing quite a few accounts.  Some haven’t made payments, other’s expired and a few changed DNS information to new hosting.  In total I think about 300 accounts were removed, which is now bringing me to the conclusion of downgrading the servers.  I’m going to completely get rid of one and of the smallest account-count left, I’ll filter them out to the other ones.  It’ll save me a few hundred dollars a month that I don’t currently have.  It’d be easier to just add a terebyte of bandwidth to another server and push the domains in that direction.  It’d also be a lot cheaper. I’m also in the process of searching for a new data center, I really can’t stand the one I’m hosted with now and I believe I’ll…

Meebo!

Quite some time ago I signed up for a website named Meebo. This site gives you the ability to log into quite a few different chat names – AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, ICQ, Google Talk and Jabber – at the same time. I came across my account with them when I was attempting to find a Firefox add-on dedicated to MyBlogLog and BlogCatalog – it’s kind of annoying having to log into the site manually and with all of the Firefox add-ons out there, you would assume there would be something. FYI: There isn’t at this point in time. So, why do I enjoy Meebo? When you’re looking to get online without having to download a program – Meebo is the route for you. I know quite a few people who use this program while they’re at work. It gives users…

Don’t answer the phone!

For the past few hours a few different phone numbers have been calling the house. Originally I thought it was merely a prank but supposedly I’m not the only one receiving these phone calls. If you see any of the numbers show up on your caller ID, please be sure to avoid answering the phone. These numbers have been widely known for calling up to 15 times per day, and based on a few of the threads I’ve found in regards to it, a lot of people are effected by it. I’m going to log into comcast in a few moments and block these numbers from calling. If you’re looking for more information, please head over to 888notes.com and read a bit more about it. They never say why they’re calling, you’re lucky if someone even responds to your saying…

Mac OS X Leopard

I’ve finally upgraded the Mac to OS X Leopard.  I have to say that I’m really enjoying it so far.  As far as functions are concerned it’s really no different than OS X Tiger, but visually it’s gorgeous.  The new dock blows my mind, the speed has also increased.  I didn’t lose anything during the upgrade, which is a plus, but I’m noticing that programs are also loading a lot quicker than they were in the past.  I don’t know if Leopard has anything to do with that but it seems to be working that way for me so I’ll happily take the upgrade.  Usage right now, with Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash and a few other programs running is only at 10% and for 1GB of ram, that’s pretty damn amazing for me.  I do intend to upgrade the RAM at…

Stumble!

I’ve recently joined StumbleUpon.com, you can view my profile by going to krissyville.stumbleupon.com. It’s my hope to be able to get all of my favorite entry bookmarks in order, and even have the ability to see who else favors them as well.  Another reason is for networking, if I can find sites with a common interest I may have a little more to do during the day.  I’ve had to create another email address just to handle all of my networking sites, from blogcatalog & twitter to bumpzee and mybloglog and numerous other ones I’m receiving so many messages during the day about joining communities and new friends that it’s becoming overwhelming.  Hopefully this is the right route to take to get things back up to where this domain used to be.  I’m active in numerous communities, I’m commenting on…

Still working on things…

I’m working on getting a lot of my Social Site Widgets up and running.  I’m a member of quite a few different ones, BlogCatalog, MyBlogLog, Twitter, and a few blogrolls that I’ve joined and unfortunately forgot about, so I’ll be adding a new links section to the site as well.  I don’t really like putting really long content onto the sidebar so I’m sure I’ll figure something out.  Right now I’m in the process of merging my blogcatalog account, I didn’t realize that I had acidgloss.net previously listed with another email address.  I went to add it to my new account and was having some trouble.  Thankfully after an email from Daniel at BlogCatalog.com support, I’m hoping to be able to accomplish this merge.  I don’t have anything else going on with that other account so hopefully I can delete…
