Massive drop in users unlikely due to PRISM, but ...

I'm dumping Gmail for personal use due to privacy concerns. Anyone else? Even if Google and the other tech firms deny NSA's alleged direct server access, there's no proving whats true. I've always operated under the assumption that once its out on the internet, its out there.This all sounds eerily similar to the premise of the TV show, Person of Interest.See More

Amazon buys Zappos: Lessons from Bezos

Amazon announced last night that it bought Zappos for about 10 million Amazon stock, worth $807 million, and $40 million in cash and stock to Zappos employees.



In the following video, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos tells an interesting story of what he has learned and why Zappos is a great fit for Amazon. It seems that Amazon bought Zappos because they have the same values (i.e., customer… Continue

Cloud-based Content Delivery (Amazon vs. Rackspace)

Amazon

Amazon's file storage service is called S3 (or Simple Storage Service). Files stored on S3 can be downloaded directly from S3 servers to your end user's browser. Amazon has a content delivery network (CDN) called CloudFront which can take your files stored in S3 and deliver them… Continue

Expression Web SuperPreview

Last summer, I made the switch to a MacBookPro as my main web development system. Since then I have been slack in testing my web designs with Internet Explorer. It's time now to start making sure my web designs are cross-platform compatible, not just Firefox-friendly.



I have VMWare Fusion installed on my Mac with Windows XP and Ubuntu. Running Fusion slows down my system (with 4 GB of SDRAM) so I use it sparingly. However, with… Continue

Hbase and EC2 for Google-like Search

I have built a SaaS company based on PHP and MySQL running on cPanel accounts with each customer running their own separate MySQL database. At some point I would like to create various applications for searching of data across customers. That's not possible right now because each customer is using a separate database.



I just discovered… Continue

Adobe ConnectNow: Free Web Conferencing



Running a small web based software-as-a-service (SAAS) company, most of my customer contact is via the web (website forms and email). Only a select few of my customers actually have my telephone number. However, it's high time to add web conferencing and video as a means of improving communication with customers. If pictures speak a thousand words, perhaps video speaks ten thousand.



In the past, I've researched… Continue

Konichiwa Truman. Sorry for the 4 year delay in responding (^^;;  I just moved back to Honolulu last year and reconnecting.

I love jQuery! I've tried YUI and prototype too, but it didn't feel as intuitive as jQuery. How about you?

Hey Truman - There is a discussion I posted about a church looking for web editor and Dan thought you might want to contact them for a demo of your software!

Just checking on how you were doing... it's been a while.

Never heard. Send me a link to rogerdunn@gmail.com

I am sure it's similar to popup Chinese or adsotrans, etc

who is developer?

My technology useful to someone who's learned at least one year. It's not for very beginners

Translation from Chinese to english is not easy nor well developed due to the lack of native English speakers who have a strong command of Chinese.

We can meet in person and discuss my technology. I am looking for investors and software developers. But first I need my patent approved

Definitely! Like I said, I've been meaning to meet you for a while and have read about what you were doing from the 2,000 ft. level.

Take care and see you soon.

Oh, I see. So you're saying you "cockroached" the idea for your costume. The string that operated the wings was a precursor to your tech future. Glad I was of some help back then.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've never been to Yamagen but now I have to give it a try. I always enjoy trying new ramen shops. My favorite is Goma Tei but for the most authentic ramen I go to Ramen Nakamura.
