Needing To Catch Up???

Well it's been a while since my last post, and the title of that one is "Needing To Catch Up", posted in 2012. That can tell you how much I get on here and really take time to gather my own personal thoughts, ones that I would like to share with others. If I try to post long things here, I guess I will never get it done. So I'm gonna try and post shorter posts and make sure I connect my social media to the site so my posts there show up as well. The only thing on my mind right now, @2 in the mor...

Needing To Catch Up

Just a quick update since I haven't posted anything in my blog in a long time. I'm now on the east coast living and working in Bristol. And working for a great company, ESPN. Got another little girl on the way in a few months. That will be very exciting. I know Angel will love having someone around to play with now, or at least in a year or 2. It's Christmas time now and in Connecticut, that means snow. Took me an hour almost, just to pull my car up my driveway yesterday. I have to get a snow bl...

Pear Upgrade: Security Error Fix

This was an issue I had for just about a week. I am kinda new to the idea of doing regression tests on all of a project's codebase, but the tools I was going to be using were easily installable via PEAR. Setting up the development environment was quite a task and because of this, I found myself installing and re-installing software multiple times so that the settings would be correct. I'm not sure if this was the reason for this issue none the less, after a few re-installs of PEAR, I started get...

MyWi & Pocket Proxy

Ok. So let me clear up a few things before I get into any more details so everyone can know what's going on. If you don't know by now, I'm rockin an iPhone 4. Yes, it's the best phone in the market, hands down. This post is not a debate of that topic. The problem came about a few weeks ago, when I got an email from AT&T saying: "Did you know tethering your Smartphone to a computer requires a tethering plan? Pls call 866-679-7118 for details or visit att.com/dataplans" Ok, so tethering is bas...

Prime Minister Issue In The Bahamas

Hubert.. Perry... Get rid of both. Why does everyone say we need a new leader on both sides, yet I have seen or heard of no one potentially moving into those positions yet. Is there need for a new party or will we have a different prime minister sometime soon? And how bad off is your country when there isn't even anyone to lead that can gain the trust of the people? When does change happen?

Make Money With Bahamas Online Ad Network

Ok. So just a quick note before I go to bed. The Bahamas Online Ad Network has been launched. I am converting all the ads on my Bahamian related websites over so that they are a part of this new system. Let me explain some of the things that this network can help with. First, the cost of traditional advertising is much too high now a days. And on the other end, as business owners, we must advance towards doing business more effectively. We are encouraging the Bahamian population that we are afra...

Wordpress Database Check Function

Ok. So here is a little snippet of code I used for a project that was developed in Wordpress. This snippet will work for plugins mainly, to create and manage database versioning. I've used this sort of function in other projects as well and it works well for keeping track and synchronization between current database version and actual database version installed. This version is not the final version but it is at a point where I thought it could be useful to others as a guideline to getting a plu...

Handy Little Adwords Tracking Trick

I didn't know that you could do this until a few months ago and it's pretty sweet. Has to do with using Google Adwords for online advertising. One thing that can help any campaign to improve over time is continuous tracking and reporting and on top of that, analyzing the information and making good decisions based on it. The trick I learned was retrieving additional information from the query string that you put in Google. I knew that you can get the keyword information by using "{keyword}" in y...

Setting Up A New Linux Developer Box

As many developers are already aware of, the best operationg system for web development is undoubtedly Linux. It's also perfect for web and file hosting. Unfortunately, it did take me some time to get used to it in respect to doing everything with it. And now, over 10 years after starting out with linux, I'm providing web consultation for a major financial internet business based in South Florida. And I must say, the first day there was great even excluding all of the friendly people around. But...

The Music In Me Wants To Get Out

Back in the day, sitting down in my old dorm room, far away from home, I had to find something to keep me out of trouble and still be able to use my time constructively. Naturally, music was my choice. I've been studying music and lyrics since I was young. Making a point to learn the lead parts and hooks to most of the great songs. I remember sitting down countless days recording the best songs from BET and VH1 so I could have my own copy. This was before the internet and limewire's time. I took...

When Does MY Time Start?

It seems like there is always a long road ahead of us, and even at times it may seem like we're slipping off track. Repeating some mistakes like a scratched cd but yet slowly learning and memorizing the words of the lullaby that life's singing. As they say, some desperate times call for desperate measures... Making sacrafices is a part of the game. I try to keep myself moving forward but yet I can hear this voice in the back of my head, shouting something out to me. Is there ever a point that we...
