All we are planning the server upgrade for Thursday, all of my other sites have been moved to the new box and we will be doing some test with a second new server as well to see how well it stands up to some data delivery test we will be doing. Major investment in new hardware to support the show and the site.
In a Speech in Beijing, Tom Curley of The Associated Press and News Corp.’s Rupert Murdoch said it is time for search engines and others to pay up. I have an idea why don’t the search engines remove all referenced to the Associated Press and their associated affiliates from their search results.
I’m serious just delete them and all historical links in their indexes. Drop all references to them in all parts of their websites. Then sit back for six months and see how they fare on their own. They cry of loosing traffic, well guess what they made their own bed and now they have to deal with it. They have failed to keep their business model fresh just like the music industry has. I have no sympathy for them whatsoever. [Google]
Tonight show is complete but a small confession the first 12 minutes where recorded twice, first time I have done that in years. As soon as I started the show firefox crashed, the tricaster ran out of hd space, and a host of other things made it a complete circus. Don’t worry I save both the audio and video for a best of clips. Your host is 95% healthy again and I am announce a pretty cool new contest where you can win a Zune HD you will have to be creative to win though and will have to get on this pretty quick more in the show.
I have been fighting a nasty bug for three days but had to get the show out tonight no matter what. Lots of great content and follow ups from show 500. Thanks to everyone once again for the continued words of encouragement. Also my 20% off Godaddy Hosting code is working again feel free to use the Todd20 code once more.
