Finally! Something I Actually Want To Work On… My Site!

OMG! its been such a long time since i have began to work on my site. It seems we are always caught up catering to the whining clients needs, like a babysitter dealing with spoiled kids. Although this is sometimes frustrating it has a positive impact on your experience. I am going to be using a lot of source code and ideas that I have used on past clients to make this site a little more exciting. If you dont like it well then thats too freaken bad, go make your own site. bwahahahahah~!

Profiles VS Websites for SEO and SEM campaigns, which is better?

DO NOT GO WITH ANY MARKETING COMPANY WHO OFFERS YOU PROFILES ON DIRECTORIES FOR SEO! I cannot tell you how many clients I have had complain to me about their so called online marketing and how its not working at all. This is because Google does not rank a profile as a separate entity but as a whole in that directory, If your marketing company is selling you on exposure through their directory don’t buy into it. No search engine will every give a profile higher ranking than a top level domain ( in fact google has taken steps recently to stop this profile boom and its rankings after multiple complaints from people all over the web about scams and what not.

Decisions Decisions… Windows or Linux… Hypervisor or VMware?

Ok so I’ve Decided that I am going to construct my own private irc network to create a stable and private fire sharing network for my close friends, the question now is do i want to host it on a UNIX environment (Which is more stable) or A Windows Environment (Easier to set up).

The next step in the process was to determine hardware requirements and the hardware to use. IRC networks traditionally have 1 main server and at least 3 servers powering services (on large networks). I didn’t really need to have four servers because of the hardware (2.8 Ghz / 12MB L2 Cache, 8GB DDR3 1600mhz and 2.4TB of Hard Disk Space w Dual Gigabit Network Cards, unfortuanly the Hard Disks are all 7200 RPM 12MB Cache) which isn’t bad would allow me to take advantage of Virtualization. I Decided The next step was installing Windows 2008 Server Enterprise installing Hypervisor services and virtualizing 4 servers all running windows server 2003 enterprise, 1 as the hub and the other 3 powering the services.

The Next step would be setting up the SSL layer on the network to allow only encrypted connections preventing packet sniffing from prying eyes.
Once the network is up we can port replicate it to a VMware & UNIX environment.

The next step is now to customize and optimize your own client. Which is the fun part.
