Brutally Honest Personals

I was chatting with my friend Matt Steckler, a guy who at least once a year pulls off some zany scheme. For awhile, he was broadcasting fan commentary via cellphones from Seattle Supersonics games. As it picked up listenership, he was served with a Cease and Desist from the NBA. His latest adventure is an […]

Attachment update

It is wise to compress images from your digital camera BEFORE you send them. And just because you have superduper high resolution camera, it doesn’t suddenly make you Ansel Adams. You remain you, with a high resolution crappy snapshot. It is also wise to make sure the pictures would be of any interest to the […]

Call Me Old Fashioned

But I like using basic simple tools with few bells and whistles. I still use simple text to write HTML, I don’t update IM clients much, and I don’t have a fondness for many new versions of software. It’s been awhile since anything truly significant was changed in Photoshop, I only use Fireworks for slicing […]

Do not email me large attachments

30mb attachments aren’t funny, and for some reason, they brought my mail server to a halt. It looks to be approximately 13mb in size. All I know is that disk space for that account is eaten up, and even on 768kps (well, as advertised, fucking comcast) it has taken nearly a hour to download and […]

Image Search Optimization

With some of my websites I have found that the image search function for both Google and Yahoo has generated a significant increase in traffic. In fact, I have one website that increased it’s daily uniques by over 300 visitors a day, just because of image searching. I watched my sales and advertising clickthrough rates […]

Grand Theft Auto – It’s a Game

I don’t know why I am talking about GTA so much. Maybe because it’s such a fun game. Anyway… Reading this article made crack a smile of amusement. “A training film for mass murderers” Yes, that is what it is. According to this article the statement was made by a Miami attorney by the name […]

Google In A Nutshell

Joe Griffin puts it best in his article entitled The Google Economy Google makes friends with the popular people (used in metaphor to represent websites). Google does not care about the new kid in school. If you can understand his simple principle, you will be well on your way to laying out a solid foundation […]

Just a quicky

After numerous friends asking me the same fucking questions over and over about how to get traffic to their websites, I wrote a little article about how to promote a band website if anyone is interested. And for friends who I’ve hooked up in the past – Sorry, no more freebies. I’ve got bills to […]

How to Promote Band Websites

So you built your beautiful website about your band. You have some MP3s uploaded, you have your show date calendar, and maybe some biographies and photos posted. Operating under the assumption that you are in local garage band that plays a gig or two every few months, you are going to have a daunting task. […]

Clients That Suck

Lately, I’ve had a little extra time building up between now and my next project, so I have been surfing craiglist heavily looking for projects to fill in the void. While I’ve found some promising stuff, most of the things posted are pure crap. Henceforth, I felt the need to take a look at the […]
