Web host search

I'm in the market for a new web host. I think we've outgrown shared hosting. Dreamhost has a good set of features and it's very affordable, but the slowness and downtime are getting unbearable. So, I'm looking to jump up to a VPS host. I would love… more »

I have six Pownce invites. Email me if you want one. It's a bit like Twitter, but better. It was created by the same people that brought us Digg. It's a way to send short notes, links and files to friends. more »

Keyboard shortcuts

A coworker sent me a link to this article on the Onion. I've been that guy. It's so true, though. You menu clickers are frittering away precious seconds of your life. I posted about one of my favorites a few weeks ago. If I learn a few more… more »
