My 1 Share of Facebook Stock Came Today

Yes, last week, I bought 1 share of Facebook stock. The replica stock came in the mail today. I was pretty happy with the purchase, and I can say I was a first gen Facebook stock buyer. It’s all about novelty, but if this stock does well, novelty can turn to profit. Why I bought 1 share of Facebook Like I said on Geek Smack! last week – I bought it for novelty. I was too young to purchase Apple or Microsoft stock when they issued their IPO. I didn’t buy Yahoo! stock (thank god!) or Google stock when they...

They provide an integrated tool which creates a virtual office – cubicles, offices, common areas, meeting rooms. Each employee gets and...

Joomla or Drupal? Help me choose a new CMS and win.

I am working with a couple people on separate websites. I am also thinking about launching a new website. In the past I have used both Joomla and Drupal. While it’s nice to know both worlds, I should pick one and run with it. Problem is – I am not sure which one to choose. So help me make the selection. Give me a good reason why I should choose the Content Management System. Heck, if you feel I should think about another CMS, don’t be afraid to let it out. Comment below. All comments will be entered in a...

16 Tech Innovations that didn’t quite stick

You might remember the products. You might remember the hype. Then, you are tooling down highway 41 years later and all of a sudden you think to yourself – “Hey, whatever happened to…” Failed ideas.

But they are not staying on twitter. So who is right?

Quote the Geek – Nevermore – Bitstrips

It has been a long day. It all started yesterday when we began the process of moving a website to a different server so I could put up the new version of said site. All heck seemed to happen after that. We’ll leave the water heater out of this story, let’s just say I have taken 3 cold showers in the last 3 days. YAY! I have found I not only hit the limit on my website, I went WAYYYY past it. I had to remove 2/3rds of the podcasts just to get under quota. I am not sure what...

Still, within time change happens like it always does in life. Its really a question of whether you want to change with it, or stick with the same.
