Hiatus

February 5, 2010

I just wanted to take the time to let people know that this blog is going to go on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time. I’ve received a new job that has taken up more of my time, and I haven’t gotten enough feedback on the material I’ve posted here to justify my continued efforts here.

I may decide to come back to this blog at a later date, but for now it is suspended indefinitely.

Vacations Away

August 16, 2009

This is just a short post to let you know that I’m away and on vacation this week. I’ll be back with more Techeap next week.


Speed Quizzes

August 7, 2008

Just a short fun post for you today.

I’m about to get married, so I probably won’t be posting for a little while. I also have not had much time for writing during this time in my life, so I apologize for the lack of content.

In any case, I’ve noticed lately an increase in quizzes that test your ability to name items in particular categories as quickly as possible.

There is this one about the 100 most common English words. http://codebox.no-ip.net/controller?page=misc.QuizCommonWords

For you coders out there, there is the HTML elements quiz.

Speaking of elements, there’s the periodic table of the elements quiz.

Another fun site, (although it runs on the “premium member” method of monetization is Funtrivia.

So if you are looking for fun ways to increase you knowledge, there’s plenty of websites that can deliver.


Host Moved

July 1, 2008

Well, if you visited the blog a few days ago, you probably saw that it was taken down by the host. Apparently, the blog provider was not doing a good enough job preventing spam and the hosting service they were buying space from pulled the plug on them.

I’ve moved back to my original host here on WordPress.com until they resolve the situation, or I find a new host. At this point, I’m not too optimistic that the issue will be resolved. I also lost a fair number of posts since I was not backing up my blog.

Let that be a lesson to you to back up all of your data, even your on-line data, all of the time. I’ll talk about good ways to do that in later posts. I was able to save many of my posts through Google’s caching system, so I’m very thankful for that.

Stay tuned here for further updates.


Hi, everybody!

March 3, 2008

No, you don’t have to call me Dr. Nick, but I think that would be pretty cool.

This is my new tech blog. I hope you enjoy it and find it informative and entertaining. Only time will tell.
