CCC Storage

Steve Cox, owner of Dents Unlimted / Cox Collision / The Car Spa, recently refurbished an older building in downtown Springfield, turning it into a modern climate-controlled storage facility, and asked us to build a website for his newly christened Cox Climate Controlled Storage.  "Yay," we said, "A storage center!"  ...

Don’t Be Like Bill

Yesterday was International Data Privacy Day. Ironically, 1 in 10 people reading this post probably had their data stolen yesterday through a malicious Facebook app. Maybe this one, maybe not -- depends on which source you believe -- but data-stealing apps are out there and being used constantly by unaware, or unsavvy, FB ...

Everyone Says Bye

At one time, Bowie was pretty much the biggest rock star on the planet, yet he never lost the ability to laugh at himself, and could still write and perform songs as personal as this. RIP, Mr. David Bowie -- the coolest dude who ever was.   More

Microsoft Loves You! (More Than You Know)

Have you upgraded to Windows 10 yet?  By all accounts, it is leaps and bounds better than the universally-reviled Windows 8, and keeps alive Microsoft's odd/even string of cursed/decent operating system releases.  The best part is that it is free (supposedly) to current Windows 7 and 8 users, though we have yet to ...

A Kaleidoscope Of Mathematics

With the passing of troubled, yet undeniably genius John F. Nash, I felt like sharing this opening track to the movie 'A Beautiful Mind' by James Horner. Soundtracks are fast becoming a lost art, sadly, but inspiring works like this still pop up now and again to fire the imagination. If you have not seen the movie, a Ron ... More

Lip-Synching FTW!

Anyone who knows me at all will have known that it wouldn't be long before I posted something from the early '80s! (Boy, that was a convoluted thought.) For those of you who weren't around at that time, well, you missed out on something truly special, musically-speaking. The early '80s was, and is, a treasure trove of so ... More

You’ve Got (a) Deal! Verizon Buys AOL for $4.4 Billion

In our never-ending quest for all things 'Net-nostalgic -- and because the 'Net isn't that old, a lot of them refer to AOL -- here is the latest: Verizon has agreed to purchase AOL lock, stock, and 5-bazillion-CD-cache, for $4.4 billion. Sounds like a ton of money, but maybe not so much when you consider AOL was at one ... More
