This is an Information Site only.
I DON'T SELL ANYTHING!
I merely provide facts and commentary on subjects which interest me.

     2. Going SSL

It took FOREVER (6 months) for Google to recognize that my old site is now HTTPS, and NO LONGER HTTP, due to https redirection issues.

WHO can keep track of this stuff?

Thoma Bravo now owns DigiCert,

which owns
Symantec,

which owns
GeoTrust,

which owns RapidSSL.
Huh?

I started with RapidSSL, and ended up with DigiCert. When Google told Symantec that they were going to punish them, for the malfeasance of their subsidiaries, Symantec, instead of FIXING their errors, SOLD that part of their business to DigiCert, so that DigiCert must now deal with the RapidSSL errors.

Chrome Issues (not security related) -
REASONS I don't use Chrome. Pure Frustration.

1.
I HATE Chrome due to the difficulty of saving my 8 standard tabs, and getting them all back again. NIGHTMARE!!!
I want them ALWAYS to be there, and NEVER change.
It COULD be simple, but not on Chrome.
ZERO issue with other browsers.

2.
I HATE Chrome because I ALWAYS want to open in a NEW WINDOW, NOT TAB. NIGHTMARE!!!
Some online people offer an "easy" way to do this, which consists of 47,694 esoteric instructions. Goog Lord (sic).
ZERO issue with other browsers.

3.
I HATE Chrome, because it phones home with EVERYTHING. Way, way, way too much intrusion. If you use Chrome, you are supplying G with the most fodder possible, to be used against you.

Safari Rendering Issues
(not security related)
The Safari Browser will NOT render my Verdana fonts.
They render Verdana as "No Font".
In addition, Safari randomly
- REMOVES spaces between words, when the font color is pink.
- REMOVES single characters (a spacing issue)
(in each of these 2 cases, the text is tight, and the software tries to solve the problem by pseudo-randomly removing spaces between words - (WRONG APPROACH - just plain stupid) - only Safari exhibits this problem with the code, as written.)

BEST Example -
TCM Silent Movie Schedule.
Aside from these WEIRD glitches, I still prefer Safari.

No such issues occur when using Chrome or Firefox.

     4. Links


INcoming Links
   1. I don't do ANY "link building". ALL of my incoming links are unsolicited. I have NEVER purchased a link, and never will.

   2. I cannot control incoming links. There are always links that come from bad neighborhoods. I disavow them when I can, but they will always be present. I don't want them. I am not a "link hoare" (sp). My disavow-links file currently has 9 domains.
.

-


OUTgoing Links
   1. I only link to sources that I
         personally find VERY CREDIBLE.

   2. I don't sell ANY links.

   3. I don't grant links for the asking.

   4. If you find any link of mine that
         has become faulty, high-jacked
         or otherwise broken, tell me,
         and it will be quickly gone.
