Stardate 63994.3 (aka July 7th 2010). The world was warned about the incoming asteroid known as ssl-certificaus (4096) and how to shield websites from impending doom. Most folks didn't listen. more

Years ago I wrote a series of in-depth "secret sauce" posts. Since then, I've written a number of niche how-to posts. However, I saved our followers from seeing these obscure posts in RSS and Twitter feeds. more

Rick and the Responsive Rear-ends

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.

Clemson CBBS Sets up Shop in Greenville

Watch the video describing the partnership between Clemson's College of Business and Behavioral Science and downtown Greenville.
