To start, this blog title isn't the name of Rick's wedding singer band which, by the way, will travel virtually anywhere and perform at your wedding for free.
Rather, I started forwarding 2 links to the OC crew with 1 thought. It became an ode, sans poetry, to Rick Harris on his last day at OrangeCoat. It also turned into a brain dump of the next iteration of the web, and beyond. I had to cut the "beyond" portions out for my sanity and yours.
There's a common misconception that SSL certificates are not needed if a website has no "sensitive" data worth protecting.
At OC, we contend that every login or registration form should be SSL encrypted, no matter if there's 1 user account or 10,000. Sites with only internal users can get by at zero cost. A real SSL cert can cost as little as $20-30 a year.
Paparazzi photos captured the brutal beating by a group of teenage thugs.
An anonymous tipsters said the group became irritated after years of randomly generated spats of incessant beeping. Apparently, having to power on the microwave and set the clock before each cup of tea is too much manual labor for the coming generation of tech savvies.
The leader of the group, identified only as Evan T., was heard humbling, "power on....clock....12:30....clock....1 minute...start....power off".
Remember back in 1993 when it was cool to put animated "Under Construction" .gif graphics on an unfinished section of your website. Of course, and on rare occasion we land on one of these pages, only to find that 15 years later it is still being hammered out by little guys in hardhats.
OrangeCoat stepped up to the plate for the first Aid Joy project, Project Amazonas, and we got a bunch of new experiences and knowledge to show for it. Personally, I'm feeling the karma and liking the new technical know-how that came from this challenging pro-bono work.
