Some of you have on occasion written to me to ask about what it takes to become a top notch, first rate, highly sought after, app developer.  I don’t have any idea.  But I can relate how things are going with my little spot on the app store.  And it ain’t pretty. The wifi is […]

I have this great idea for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Curse of the Crappy Wifi. Capt. Jack Sparrow spends the entire movie sailing around the island of Key West in a failed search for a wifi signal. Based on a true story. When tech works it’s great, when it doesn’t, and your […]

For anyone who happens to own a domain name, there is a scam running around that you should be aware of. A company that calls itself, “Domain Registry Services” is culling domain owners information directly from the internet and sending out fake invoices for domains that they claim are about to expire.  The invoice is […]

On the other pages I talked at length about starting a stand up paddle business.  While the emphasis was on stand up paddle boards, the posts could easily be applied to just about any start up business venture.  Research your market, make sure you have sufficient capital to get things going, make sure you have […]

This past week, for the second month in a row, I received the holy grail of writingdom.  The be all, end all, that every single person from grade school to old fart dreams of when they commence to stringing words and punctuation together in some sort of coherent form.  I received a royalty payment for […]

Finally, A Free Useful Accounting Program...Wave...

When I was running my paddle board company, lo these many years ago, I needed to have a decent accounting program to track all the millions of dollars I was bringing in.  At the time, and because the accountant said so, I was using Quickbooks Online.  Now, Quickbooks worked just fine.  Lots of features, most […]

You probably have noticed those little images that appear when somebody posts/comments/attacks the Fritter.  Some are actual photos while others are simple diagrams.  They are called Avatars, yeah, kinda like the movie, or Gravatars, which is what this handy, helpful post is about.  If you were wondering about how to get your own gravatar to […]

My Final Post...

Yeah, you wish.  Let me rephrase that.  My final post, on my laptop.  This week begins the Grand Experiment.  I am going to attempt to live using only my iPad.  Perhaps I should clarify. I have two computing devices I use at the moment.  A Mac Air laptop and an iPad.  I needed both when […]
