Appreciating history is something many homeowners are learning to do with their homes these days. If you have moved into an old home, are you going to take away it's past? Or better yet, are you going to help it recreate its past?
From the switch plates to the banisters on the stairwell, every piece of an old house has a story to tell. If a home has been standing for hundreds of years, imagine the history it's had and the stories it could tell, if only it could talk.

Poor Balloon Boy. At first we took pity on him when we heard that he might be trapped in a hot air balloon thousands of feet above the Colorado skies. Then we became curious when we learned little Balloon Boy wasn't in the balloon at all, but hiding in his own house. Later, we got angry as the evidence indicated that Balloon Dad may have been making up the story all along.
You'd think that Dithmer, like these computer guys, would be telling business owners like me how great this stuff…Continue

As online marketers, we all have many files that must be stored online. There are our product files, our ebooks, videos and audios for our courses and sales pages, etc. The problem, however, is that, when we use our own domain to store our files, we use up our server space and slow our servers down. (If you read the small print, there are very specific limits to even "unlimited" hosting plans, and when you exceed these limits, it can get very expensive.) The other issue is that most web…Continue

External hard drives are, in effect, hard drives, and just like any other hardware, can develop faults over time, and can crash. For secure data storage, one extra hard drive simply does not…Continue

A generational shift happened ever since Cloud applications/storage/compute emerged on the IT road map. Cloud storage has 3 traits. To begin with the storage service must be over a network.
