BCC was created for a reason–USE IT!

Posted by danblog on May 18, 2011 in Ranting, Technological Ponderings |

It seems even though email as a technology has been around for well over 50 years now (yes it REALLY is that old) people, and in the example below even companies, still don’t get how to use the BCC – or Blank Carbon Copy – header properly. The BCC header, as the name suggests sends […]

BTOpenZone doesn’t like OpenDNS or YouTube. Silly BT.

Posted by danblog on January 27, 2011 in Ranting, Technological Ponderings, YouTube |

As a geek with a laptop, who regularly spends at least 4/5hours a week sat in Starbucks blogging, tweeting and being a general geek. I often have to rely heavily on the Free WiFi services many places offer, one of the main ones being BTOpenZone. Now on Mondays I usually end up in Starbucks for […]

You do know what BRB means right?

Posted by danblog on November 4, 2010 in Ranting |

BRB: the modern, hip and lazy way of saying Be Right Back. A phrase (or acronym of a phrase) to be used when you are happily talking to someone and just need to nip out or have to quickly do something and won’t be able to talk to them for a few minutes, perhaps you […]

Posted by danblog on October 14, 2010 in Ranting, Windows Stuff |

Just had an unexpected problem with Windows Live Messenger (MSN)… apparently I have too many friends? This is stupid! I don’t want to have to keep removing one friend to add another! 🙁

Don’t trust a host with Magic hard drives

Posted by danblog on September 28, 2010 in Ranting, Reviews |

Today a friend approached me telling me how another host has some fantastic offerings so I checked them out… Apparently you can get 400GB diskspace, 10TB bandwidth on a shared dual-core with up to 100 other people! I thought this was incredible so naturally I spoke to one of the sales team on how they […]

Posted by danblog on November 11, 2009 in Ranting |

Yes, I am sorry. This is a rant. Recently I was recommended a site Vision2learn.com and thought I would take a distance learning/online course to build up the CV and gain a useful qualification. Their website says about how courses are for 16+ etc so thought, great a free course! Apply online, got a huge […]


OVH Technical Support is bad and worthless.

Posted by danblog on September 10, 2009 in Ranting, Reviews, Web Hosting |

I run a small web hosting company, and work with multiple data centres and software suppliers etc to deliver my products, one of which is OVH. Been using a server with them for almost 4/5 months now and, while the server seems fine the technical support is terrible. A month or so ago i added an […]
