On the Ranch

Born on the North West Coast of the US. I am use to Snow Capped Mountains, beautiful Forests, wild flowers on wild Rivers. The once wild foods, berries of the area and the beloved Salmon.

I could look out across the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean. I could look in land at the Snow Capped Mountains.

I watched the Hawks and Eagles soaring in the clean pure blue skies. Enjoyed the thrill of the first crys of the Geese in Spring and Winter. As thousands of flocks in v formation made their dramatic way North or South each season.

Loving the show of the Northern Lights dancing across the skies.

Hearing the howl of the wolf packs. Hearing them pausing at the tent flap at night, as they listened in on you.

Finding you were being tracked by curious Mountain Lions in the snow when crossing back over the trails and seeing their foot prints behind yours.

Seeing huge bear tracks just filling in with water on the trail and the hair standing up on the back of your neck realizing he/she is right next to you in the brush.

Men in writing like Press !!!!!!! So at our sites you will see that on the pages alot:) Hot off the press!!!!!!!

Recreated Gutenberg press at the International Printing Museum, Carson, California

A printing press is a device for applying pressure to an inked surface resting upon a print medium (such as paper or cloth), thereby transferring the ink. This was a dramatic improvement on earlier printing methods in which the cloth, paper or other medium was brushed or rubbed repeatedly to achieve the transfer of ink, and accelerated the process. Typically used for texts, the invention and spread of the printing press was one of the most influential events in the second millennium.[1][2]

The Lost Ways
Book

The Crisis we should all prep for
is what folks 150 years ago called daily life:

…no electrical power, no refrigerators, no Internet, no computers, no TV, no hyperactive law enforcement, and no Safeway or Walmart.
They got things done or else we wouldn’t be here!

Here’s just a glimpse of what you’ll find in The Lost Ways:

If you liked our video tutorial on how to make Pemmican, then you’ll love this: I will show you how to make another superfood that our troops were using in the Independence war, and even George Washington ate on several occasions. This food never goes bad. And I’m not talking about honey or vinegar. I’m talking about real food! The awesome part is that you can make this food in just 10 minutes and I’m sure that you already have the ingredients in your house right now.

You’ll also discover 25 other survival foods that we’ve lost to history.You can bring them back to life and improve your stockpiles, so you’ll never run out of food in a crisis.Or you can spend fun weekends with your family recreating old survival recipes like Mud Apples or Mormon Johnnycake.

You’ll find out the techniques and methods used by the wise sheriffs from the frontiers to defend an entire village despite being outnumbered and outgunned by gangs of robbers and bandits, and how you can use their wisdom to defend your home against looters when you’ll be surrounded.

You’ll learn to do when there is no more ammo to be had, how people who wandered the West managed to hunt eight deer with six bullets,and why their supply of ammo never ran out. You’ll master

“The Art of Poultice.” If you explore the ingredients from which our forefathers made poultices,you’ll be totally surprised by the similarities with modern medicines.

Well…how would you feel in a crisis to be the only one from the group knowledgeable about this lost skill?

You’ll learn how Native Americans build the subterranean roundhouse,an underground house that today will serve you as a storm shelter, a perfectly camouflaged hideout, or a bunker.It can easily shelter three to four families, so how will you feel if, when all hell breaks loose, you’ll be able to call all your loved ones and offer them guidance and shelter? Besides that, the subterranean roundhouse makes an awesome root cellar where you can keep all your food and water reserves year-round

You’ll gain the lost knowledge of sailors from the XVII century who preserved water in their ships for months on end even years and you’ll find out how you can use this method to preserve clean water for your family cost-free.

 

I already have a lot of Survival camping in woods and canning/ food prep books but thanks Antonio for the link. Amazon customers give it a 1 1/2 star:( Huge book of double spaced words, too huge for a book shelf, for $184.__ Wow!

RECAP: The Paranormal Side of Earth Changes…..

It is almost comical to witness sign after sign as the Earth Changes count coup on civilization. Ma Earth has begun her “season” or cleansing cycle while mankind tries to find an angle to capitalize on the growing cyclic natural events, both political and financial. Predictably technology will soon become mankind’s Achilles Tendon as solar and stellar events take precedents over known science. And all the politicians on the planet can concern themselves about is political correctness while pandering to the International Monetary Fund and the New World Order or Globalization. Dare I mention they’ve also betrayed their electorates in the process? How far beyond stupid is that? But alas this was meant to be as foretold many generations ago. Continue reading →

Prophesies from around the planet have foretold of how man would try to control the world in the final days of this cycle. The era of the “Pied Piper” and false prophets has come to pass. People, like lemmings, scramble from one sweet talking politician to another while told elaborate bold faced lies, but they sound good. Presidents and Prime Ministers are only mouth pieces who take their marching orders from corporate oligarchs, plain and simple.

From the Orwellian point of view “Big Brother” and the time of double speak has already arrived. Naomi Klein’s concept of “Disaster Capitalism” and the “Shock Doctrine” has marched forward completely unabated on every continent on the planet. Economies around the world have been strategically crippled while international corporate terrorists introduce a “Global” solution to our financial woes, the final nail in the coffin of national sovereignty.

Like it or not people would rather hear a sweet lie instead of the hard truth and this will be their death nil. Oh well, to bad so sad. That was in prophesies as well by the way. On the bright side this is only a “sign” provided you are paying attention. When material wealth becomes meaningless the Oligarchy of the New World Order will be in the same boat as us as we enter the “humbling times”. According to visions even the star people will be stunned by the dynamic of this time of change.

There is much to say about the physical aspects of change and that is a good thing. But there is not much word about the supernatural or paranormal side to this time we live though. The truth of the matter is the spirit world or “the other side” will also interface with our plain or level of existence. What was once relegated to only a few folks such as medicine people, soothsayers and psychics will become privy to all of humanity. For some this will be a G*D-Send to others it will be a pariah and for a few it will be the last straw and push them over the edge. Frankly I believe the “interface” has already begun and there is no psychotropic drug in the universe that will silence the “voices” in people’s heads.

Within my culture we’ve always had a deep connection with the spirit world and have been quite aware of the other spirits that are around us. From space dudes to spirits who speak telepathically the voices in ones head are very real. Unfortunately some people can’t cope with our true reality and simply loose their minds or become subservient to the “voices”. The excuse for some of the most egregious crimes in history was “the voice in my head told me to do it” and that is just plain stupid. Granted, the voice was real and some bonehead spirit told a person to hack his family to pieces. Then the idiot turned around and whacked his family. How far beyond stupid is that?

I don’t care what a spirit or voice tells me to do, if it’s stupid, it’s stupid. And I could give a flying crappola about the lame threats they usually make when you “disobey”. I’ve been threatened with all kinds of stuff including the deaths of my poop-butt kids by angry spirits I defied. Been there, done that. It’s all a matter of perspective and the sooner people come to terms with the “voice” and the reality of the spirit world the better. Take it or leave it.

There is no secret to dealing with spirits and their pesky voices. The instruction manual is written within all the dogmas of the universe. The supernatural aspects of our reality did not stop in the last story of the Bible or other sacred script. The spirits who tormented people in these texts are still floating around and causing havoc to civilization and now they’ve gone into hyper drive. But on a good note so are the good spirits who walk with the Creator. Call it a spirit war if you will but we are knee deep in the middle of it and if we plan to survive this aspect of the time of change we better get over our fear of the supernatural. Knowing which spirit’s are good or bad is the key to surviving the future.

If you get all ga ga over simply seeing or hearing a spirit then you are putty in the hands of this bonehead. And if this joker is a bad spirit then you will most likely make headlines for some stupid mass murder of some kind. At the very least you would be manipulated in a very negative way. Get over the fact there are spirits and focus on if they are good or bad. Just cause some spirit can float you a Pepsi or shows you some fantastic parlor trick does not mean a cotton picking thing. Look within your dogma and you will learn to differentiate between the good guys and the bad. It’s really not a secret and your life will depend on this knowledge in the very near future paisan.

In my tradition we ask for verification from the Creator if a spirit dude is good or not. And when we get our answer we either pay attention to their words or tell them to go away, after all we still have the gift of free will. But never are we intimidated by any spirit or spook for fear is the fuel evil thrives on in many plains of existence. Space guys are treated the same way since there is both good and bad guys in their ilk as well. It is really quite simple whence you get over the fact they do exist. There are people who would go ga ga over the sight of a spirit and possibly think they were G*D’s of some kind, paleeze.

If some spirit told me he was a G*D and that I had to whack my kids or murder someone I would laugh my ass off at this bonehead but there are others who would simply comply. It would appear people are already “following” the commands of some butthead spirits. The rash of child stabbings in China is a classic example of woefully misguided people I do believe. It’s bound to get much worse throughout the planet as we interface with the spirit world more and more. Time is the task master and that is running very short.

Wow! Interesting Conversation Between Host Sites from Face Book Shared To Public.

The Wix Mobile App, a WordPress Joint

Anyone who knows me knows that I like to try new things — phones, gadgets, apps. Last week I downloaded the new Wix (closed, proprietary, non-open-sourced, non-GPL) mobile app. I’m always interested to see how others tackle the challenge of building and editing websites from a mobile device.

I started playing around with the editor, and felt… déjà vu. It was familiar. Like I had used it before.

Turns out I had. Because it’s WordPress.

If I were being charitable, I’d say, “The app’s editor is based on the WordPress mobile app’s editor.” If I were being honest, I’d say that Wix copied WordPress without attribution, credit, or following the license. The custom icons, the class names, even the bugs. You can see the forked repositories on GitHub complete with original commits from Alex and Maxime, two developers on Automattic’s mobile team. Wix has always borrowed liberally from WordPress — including their company name, which used to be Wixpress Ltd. — but this blatant rip-off and code theft is beyond anything I’ve seen before from a competitor.

Dear Wix,

This explicitly contravenes the GPL, which requires attribution and a corresponding GPL license on whatever you release publicly built on top of GPL code. The GPL is what has allowed WordPress to flourish, and that let us create this code. Your app’s editor is built with stolen code, so your whole app is now in violation of the license.

I suppose we’ll take this as a compliment — I’m sure the hundreds of people who have contributed to WordPress Core and our mobile apps are flattered that you chose to build one of your company’s core features using our code. We’re also excited to see what great things you create with all the time you saved not having to write your own mobile editor.

You know what’d be even more exciting? To see you abide by the GPL and release your source code back to the community that gave you that jump start.

I’ve always said that the GPL isn’t about limits, it’s about possibilities. In open source software, you trade some of your control as a developer to better serve the developer community and the people using your sites and products. I don’t think that’s a limit, I think it’s a way to make sure we encourage innovation and momentum. If you want to close the door on innovation, Wix, that’s your decision to make — just write your own code. If you’re going to join the open source community, play by the open source rules.

Release your app under the GPL, and put the source code for your app up on GitHub so that we can all build on it, improve it, and learn from it.

Love,
Matt and the open source community

An Update

The CEO of Wix has posted a response on their blog. I’ll also try to post my response it to the comments there. Miriam Schwab also has a very good response.

We were all very surprised by your post, as you have so many claims against us.

Wow, dude I did not even know we were fighting.

It’s not a fight: the claim is that the Wix mobile apps distribute GPL code and aren’t themselves GPL, so they violate the license.

First, you say we have been taking from the open source community without giving back, well, of course, that isn’t true. Here is a list of 224 projects on our public GitHub page, and as you can see they are all dated before your post. We have not checked if WordPress is using them, but you are more than welcome to do so, some of them are pretty good.

Very glad your company has projects on GitHub! Thank you for the offer to use them; if we do, we’ll make sure to follow the license you’ve put on the code very carefully.

Releasing other open source projects doesn’t mean that you can violate the license of the editor code you distributed in your mobile apps. To repeat my earlier points: since you distributed GPL code with your apps, the entire apps need to be released at GPL, not just your modifications to that one library.

As this Hacker News comment put it, “Open source is not a swap meet; you can’t violate a license if you voluntarily release some other code to make up for it.”

We always shared and admired your commitment to give back, which is exactly why we have those 224 open source projects, and thousands more bugs/improvements available to the open source community and we will release the app you saw as well.

If you were to release the entire source code of the apps under GPL that would bring you back into compliance with the license you violated. I think you’re saying you will do that here, but can you clarify? When should we look for the app code to be released, and where? That would resolve this issue completely.

Next, you talk about the Wix App being stolen from WordPress. There are more than 3 million lines of code in the Wix application, notably the hotels/blogs/chat/eCommerce/scheduling/booking is all our code.

I said the app includes stolen code. It doesn’t matter if it’s 30 lines or 30 million lines: because it includes GPL code and you distributed the app, the entire thing needs to be GPL. If you release the entire app’s code, as I think you said you would, then that resolves the license violation.

Yes, we did use the WordPress open source library for a minor part of the application (that is the concept of open source right?), and everything we improved there or modified, we submitted back as open source, see here in this link – you should check it out, pretty cool way of using it on mobile native. I really think you guys can use it with your app (and it is open source, so you are welcome to use it for free). And, by the way, the part that we used was in fact developed by another and modified by you.

Thank you for admitting you used the code and not trying to hide it. The issue isn’t the changes you made, it’s that including the editor means you need to submit the entire app as open source, which you have not yet — it’s completely proprietary.

If you want to read the account from Tal Kol, one of the leading engineers on this project, here it is. He was really happy to share his side of the story.

I have seen it, and it already has a number of good comments on it, including this one: “Can you address this point made in Matt’s post: ‘This explicitly contravenes the GPL, which requires attribution and a corresponding GPL license on whatever you release publicly built on top of GPL code’.” It appears you and Tal might share a misunderstanding of how the GPL works — software licensing can be tricky and many people make honest mistakes. (If you want to get into serious detail, this comment lays the licensing requirements out clearly.) It is easy to rectify this one: release your apps as open source under the GPL.

Now, what is this thing about us stealing your branding? Our product was always called Wix and our website Wix.com, we never borrowed from your marketing or brand.

Sorry for including this distraction; I was referring specifically to the fact that Wix used to go by “Wixpress.” You can see this in your Form F-1, and there used to be a support page about this on your site:

Although that is still in Google, the page it links to now mysteriously returns a 404 error, which you may want to look into.

In fact, if I remember correctly, until recently the Automattic home page was all about blogs and only recently it has become “websites.” Also, your business model changed to almost exactly the one we had for years. Can it be that you guys are borrowing from us? If so, again, you are welcome to it.

The Automattic home page has been a series of haiku about our products since 2009, pretty much unchanged — I think you mean the WordPress.com home page here. WordPress has been used for creating websites, not just blogs, since our 1.5 release in 2005 added themes and pages. In my 2014 State of the Word address I talked about how 87% of WordPress sites use it as a CMS. We regularly test dozens of variations of the WP.com homepage and some of them definitely emphasize website creation. I will say we look to Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace as innovators in the space with products that reach many small businesses, and Wix especially should be commended for its success and growth as a public company.

If you believe that we need to give you credit, that you deserve credit, I must say, absolutely yes. You guys deserve a lot of credit, but not because of a few lines of source code, you deserve credit because you guys have been making the internet dramatically better, and for that we at Wix are big fans. We love what you have been trying to do, and are working very hard to add our own contribution to make the internet better.

Thank you very much, that is kind. I do think there are a lot of values we share in common and would love to see this one issue resolved.

If you need source code that we have, and we have not yet released, then, most likely we will be happy to share, you only need to ask. We share your belief that making the internet better, is best for everyone.

That’s what my post was asking, for you to release the code. To quote my original letter: “Release your app under the GPL, and put the source code for your app up on GitHub so that we can all build on it, improve it, and learn from it.”

Finally, during the last couple of years, I reached out a couple of times trying to meet with you. Could I do that again here? I believe in friendly competition, and as much fun as it is to chat over the blogosphere, maybe we can also do it over a cup of coffee?

Once this is resolved I’d be happy to meet up. I believe when we exchanged emails in 2014 there was trouble finding overlap in our travel schedules.

I hope the above clarifies where we think Wix made a mistake, and how to fix it.

Matthew CharlesMattMullenweg (born January 11, 1984) is an American online social media entrepreneur and web developer living in San Francisco. He is best known for developing the free and open-source web software WordPress, now managed by The WordPress Foundation.

After dropping out of the University of Houston, he worked at CNET Networks from 2004 to 2005 until he quit and founded Automattic, the business behind WordPress.com (which provides free WordPress blogs and other services), Akismet, Gravatar, VaultPress, IntenseDebate, Polldaddy, and more.

Contents

Early life and education

Mullenweg was born in Houston, Texas, and attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where he studied jazz saxophone.[4] He studied at the University of Houston, majoring in Political Science, before he dropped out in 2004 to pursue a job at CNET Networks.[5]

Career

Mullenweg at WordCamp Germany 2009

In January 2003, Mullenweg and Mike Little started WordPress from the b2 codebase. They were soon joined by original b2 developer Michel Valdrighi. Mullenweg was 19 years old, and a freshman at the University of Houston at the time.[6][7] He co-founded the Global Multimedia Protocols Group (GMPG) in March 2004 with Eric Meyer and Tantek Çelik. GMPG wrote the first of the Microformats. In April 2004, with fellow WordPress developer Dougal Campbell, they launched Ping-O-Matic, a hub for notifying blog search engines like Technorati about blog updates.[8] The following month, WordPress competitor Movable Type announced a radical price change, driving thousands of users to seek another blogging platform; this is widely seen as the tipping point for WordPress.[9]

In October 2004, he was recruited by CNET to work on WordPress for them and help them with blogs and new media offerings.[10] He dropped out of college and moved to San Francisco from Houston, Texas, the following month. Mullenweg announced bbPress in December,[11] Mullenweg and the WordPress team released WordPress 1.5 “Strayhorn” in February 2005, which had over 900,000 downloads.[12] The release introduced their theme system, moderation features, and a redesign of the front and back end. In late March and early April, Andrew Baio found at least 168,000 hidden articles on the WordPress.org website that were using a technique known as cloaking.[13] Mullenweg admitted accepting the questionable advertisement and removed all articles from the domain.[14]

Mullenweg left CNET in October 2005 to focus on WordPress and related activities full-time,[15] and announced Akismet several days later.[16] Akismet is a distributed effort to stop comment and trackback spam by using the collective input of everyone using the service. In December, he announced Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com and Akismet. Automattic employed people who had contributed to the WordPress project, including lead developer Ryan Boren and WordPress MU creator Donncha O Caoimh. An Akismet licensing deal[17] and WordPress bundling[18] was announced with Yahoo! Small Business web hosting about the same time.

Mullenweg at WordCamp Bulgaria 2011

In January 2006 Mullenweg recruited former Oddpost CEO and Yahoo! executive Toni Schneider to join Automattic as CEO, bringing the size of the company to 5. An April 2007 Regulation D filing showed that Automattic raised approximately $1.1 million.[19] Investors were Polaris Ventures, True Ventures, Radar Partners, and CNET.

Mullenweg runs an angel investment firm Audrey Capital, which has backed nearly 30 companies since 2008.[20] In 2011 he backed Y Combinator startup Earbits.[21]

In January 2008 Automattic raised an additional $29.5 million for the company from Polaris Venture Partners, True Ventures, Radar Partners, and the New York Times Company.[22] According to Mullenweg’s blog the funding was a result of spurned acquisition offers months before and the decision to keep the company independent. At the time the company had 18 employees.[23] One of the reported plans for the funding was in a forum service called TalkPress.[24]

In January 2009, the San Francisco Business Times reported that traffic to WordPress sites were growing faster than for Google’s blogger service and significantly outstripped its nearest competitor, Six Apart. A reporter at eMarketer called Mullenweg “quite an entrepreneur and visionary” and compared WordPress’ momentum over its competitors to Facebook’s growing popularity over MySpace.[25]

In February 2009, an interview with Power Magazine called Mullenweg “the Blog Prince” and dispelled the myth that blogging was a passing trend and revealed that the company has seen a 10% month-on-month organic growth with more than 15,000 new blogs hosted by WordPress each day.[26]

In May 2009, Mullenweg’s unwillingness to comply with Chinese censorship meant WordPress.com was effectively blocked by China’s Golden Shield Project.[27]

A Bloomberg interview in April 2011 described the impressive scalability of the company. Monthly infrastructure costs were only $300,000 to $400,000 while powering 12% of the internet with 1,350 servers and 80 employees in 62 cities. The management of the global company excludes all internal email but instead communication is rooted in their P2theme.com blog theme.[28]

Mullenweg at WordCamp Europe 2013

In July 2011, WordPress blogs pass the 50 million milestone, powering over 50 million blogs globally.[29]

In April 2012, Pingdom reported that “WordPress completely dominates top 100 blog” and is in use by 49% of the top 100 blogs in the world. This is a huge increase from the 32% that was recorded 3 years ago.[30] In May 2012, All Things D reported that “WordPress now powers 70 million sites… and expects to bring in $45 million in revenue this year.” The company’s success is also reflected in its incredibly low rate of staff attrition – the company currently has 106 employees and has only ever hired 118.[31]

In January 2014 Mullenweg became CEO of Automattic. Toni Schneider moved to work on new projects at Automattic.[1] In the announcement Mullenweg joked “it’s obvious that no one in their twenties should run a company.”,[32] and a few months later in May raised $160M in additional funding for the company, valuing the company at over a billion dollars, and WordPress was cited as powering “22 percent of the world’s top 10 million websites.”[33]

Since 2005, Mullenweg has been a frequent keynote/speaker at conferences/events, including global WordCamp events,[34] SxSW,[35] Web 2.0 Summit, YCombinator’s Startup School,[36] Le Web,[37] Lean Startup Conference,[38] and the International World Wide Web Conference[39] etc.

Awards and recognition

In March 2007, Mullenweg was named #16 of the 50 most important people on the web by PC World,[40] reportedly the youngest on the list.[41] In October, Mullenweg acquired the Gravatar service[42] and was rumored to have turned down a US$200 million offer to buy his company Automattic.[43] In 2008, Mullenweg received the Information Technology Innovator Award – presented by Temple University‘s Fox School of Business and Management to those who have applied Information Technology to create new business opportunities.[44]

In July 2008 Mullenweg was featured on the cover of Linux Journal.[45] Later that month a San Francisco Chronicle story put him on the cover of the business section and noted he still drove a Chevrolet Lumina and WordPress.com was ranked #31 on Alexa with 90 million monthly page views.[46] In September, Mullenweg was being named to the Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 by Inc. Magazine[47] and one of the 25 Most Influential People on the Web by BusinessWeek.[48]

In December 2010, Mullenweg was awarded the Winner of the TechFellow Award in “Product Design and Marketing”.[49] In January 2011, Business Insider listed Mullenweg as #3 of their 30 Founders under 30 list for creating WordPress, the power behind many new startups.[50]

In March 2011, Mullenweg was named one of the top 10 most influential people online for changing the face of the internet by Business Insider.[51] In October 2011, Mullenweg made Vanity Fairs Next Establishment prestigious list of rising talents in tech, media, policy, and business.[52] In December 2011, Mullenweg was listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 for Social/Mobile for the impact he has made on the blogging world through open source. [53]

In May 2012, Mullenweg was listed in Forbes‘s Most Influential Angel Investors on AngelList.[54] In December 2012, Mullenweg was listed in 2012 Forbes’s 30 Under 30 in Media.[55]

Personal life and philanthropy

Mullenweg is a Dvorak Keyboard user and can type over 120wpm.[56] He is on the board of Grist.org, the founder/director of the WordPress Foundation, and is the only non-company high level sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation.

Mullenweg supports a number of philanthropic organizations including Archive.org, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Free Software Foundation, Long Now, and Innocence Project. He is also a member of The Well at the non-profit “Charity: Water” organization (with which he traveled to Ethiopia in February 2012) where he supports providing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. For his 28th birthday he started a campaign which raised over $28,000 for the cause,[57] and then over $44,000 for his 30th.[58] Mullenweg was a major supporter of The Bay Lights project, both as the first donor and later helping to finish the project with a second $1.5M donation.[59]

What Is All This?

  Am I confused . Did I step into a war? Is that what happened?

I thought maybe I ran over my limit and have to down size and redesign  my blogs with out losing important memories.

It seems people walk into Word Press and just grab up and steal other peoples blogs? And they no longer are on the real Word Press? How does this work?

GoDaddy vs WordPress – Is it Really a Battle

Godaddy vs WordPressWhen looking at GoDaddy vs. WordPress, you must look at what these two things are and the role they play in a website. Maybe you’re very new to building a website and you don’t know where to start. If this is the case, looking at both GoDaddy and WordPress is a pretty good place to start.

What is GoDaddy?

GoDaddy is a domain registration company that offers other tools, such as hosting. However, it’s important to understand that GoDaddy is a domain registration company first. This means, the domain you need for your website (i.e. – http://www.yourname.com) can be purchased and registered through GoDaddy.

As you register your domain name with GoDaddy, they will try to sell you many add-ons and upgrades, just as any other domain registration company would. These include hosting, which is very important to your website, as well.

However, hosting from GoDaddy is average, at best. This company isn’t known for hosting, but for selling domain names. Since hosting isn’t their primary focus, they simply don’t provide the best hosting you can get for your website, which is very important.

What is WordPress?

WordPress, on the other hand, isn’t a type of hosting or a domain registration company. It’s a platform used for blogging and the design of websites. Virtually every hosting company and package on the planet offers access to WordPress.

WordPress allows you to use many free and paid templates to easily create a website and a blog. You can actually create both your website and your blog on the same domain name with WordPress. This means, you will have both static pages and a blog page with recent posts.

Due to it’s flexibility and ease of use, WordPress has become the most popular CMS ( content management system ) in the world, and now powers 1 in 5 websites online.

Is the Battle Between GoDaddy vs. WordPress even Relevant?

The simple answer to this question is no. If GoDaddy and WordPress were both hosting companies, they could be thrown into the cage to battle it out. Since WordPress is available for use through GoDaddy hosting, there really isn’t a relevant battle here.

What You Should Understand about GoDaddy and WordPress

If you’re new to web hosting, website design, blogging and buying a domain name, there are a few things you need to understand before moving forward.

  • GoDaddy isn’t a top hosting company
  • WordPress is available (free of charge) from nearly every hosting company on the planet
  • WordPress is the most widely used content management system (platform for a website and blog)
  • GoDaddy is a good place to register a domain name
  • Choosing a top hosting company is vital to the success of your website

With these things in mind, it’s important to shop around and find the right hosting company for your needs. Since nearly every hosting company out there will give you access to WordPress, you have to look at what they offer.

Why GoDaddy isn’t the Right Hosting Company For You

GoDaddy provides an excellent service in domain registration because this is how the company started. They specialize in providing a fair price for your domain name, along with all the necessary features to make it easy to use.

However, they don’t provide a fair price for the lack-luster hosting they offer. Since hosting was something they added to the company later, it’s not a primary or even a secondary focus for GoDaddy. Yes, they offer you WordPress within your package, but that’s about the only good thing you get from hosting your website with GoDaddy.

It may seem easier to keep your domain name and your hosting with the same company, but it’s not. Many customers have spent hours on the phone with the GoDaddy support team and still have issues with their website. Simply put, GoDaddy doesn’t offer the best hosting you can find.

ITX Design – A Better Hosting Company Offering WordPress

Not only is ITX Design a better hosting company than GoDaddy for many reasons, but they are also one of the best hosting companies you will find. With plenty of packages ranging from an inexpensive shared hosting option to an affordable dedicated server, ITX Design excels in every area of hosting.

Every hosting package offered by ITX Design provides easy access to WordPress and plenty of other features. This hosting company provides something you don’t get from every hosting company, top-notch support.

Technical support is one of the most important features of any hosting package and the way the best separate themselves from all the rest. ITX Design employs only the top industry experts to provide full 24/7 technical support. When you have an issue, they are ready to fix it, as fast as possible.

The Winner Between GoDaddy vs. WordPress

If you enjoy headaches, getting the run around and spending far more time working on your website than necessary, choose GoDaddy for your hosting. However, if you want the comfort of knowing a top hosting industry professional is just a phone call or an email away, ITX Design is a far better hosting company.

There really isn’t a winner between GoDaddy vs. WordPress. GoDaddy isn’t a good hosting company and WordPress is a content management system (CMS) offered by most hosting companies. The real winner here is ITX Design with the wide variety of excellent hosting companies, all offering WordPress for your website and blog needs.

RECAP: Metaphysical Survival Guide For The End Of Times.

obama nitratesYeah, yeah, yeah talking about spirits seems sort of lame in this so called modern error, I mean era. Fact being, all dogmas address the supernatural and our direct connection with the spirit world. It’s not a secret homeboy. The spirit world is just next door and there are spirits who are here specifically to rain on your parade. Take it for what its worth but it was said in visions we all chose to walk this world with all the obstacles we face long before we were born unto Earth.

The obstacles placed before us were challenges we, as spirits, needed to overcome before we could continue our journey. Our time on Earth was only one of many stops we were to make on our magnificent journey of great knowledge. There, I said it and soon people will be burning my effigy in Time Square for being a heretic. Continue reading

RECAP 09′: Hey Al, What About Uranus?

This is a piece I wrote back in 2009 that you might find eerily Pertinent & Entertaining. An Oldie But Goodie…Buffalohair

dork gore copyI think I’ve heard just as much as I can stand from Al Gore. I’m sorry but I tried to buy into his agenda but science just keeps getting in the way. Political alchemists filter his events from real opposition casting a shadow of suspicion on the true agenda. But I still think he’s a nice guy, really.

Those pesky ice core samples from Antarctica, at a bazillion dollar a popsicle, tell a different story, a story of cycles. Naturally occurring CO2 and a host of other so called green house gasses have been detected in sedimentary layers between Ice Ages. Contrary to popular belief this was not caused by Uncle Lester’s 1966 Volkswagen Van, it was caused by volcanism and a wide variety of fissures throughout the globe.

The fact Polar Regions throughout the solar system are melting may be another indicator that there is more afoot than green house gasses. But given time alchemists will say it’s a coincidence and point their accusing finger at some poor old trucker or little Bobby Zimmerman’s flatulent hamster. How far beyond stupid are we?

Throughout the region known as “The Ring of Fire” open fissures underwater are pumping trillions of tons of gases of all varieties and toxicities. Volcanologists have noted the marked increase in volcanic activity around the world in recent years. Russia just had a chain of volcanoes, (Kamchatka 6), erupt simultaneously as Kilauea continues to pump toxins into the ozone. Redoubt, in Alaska, has joined the ranks of the living as other sleeping volcanoes continue to spring to life around the world.

Tectonic plates are shifting as the earth groans in anticipation of the inevitable polar shift. Wonder if our magnetosphere ever closed back up. Ah but who pays attention that junk anyway? We should since we pay billions in taxpayer dollars on this research only to have it ignored for political/financial reasons.

There is no question mankind should not have been so destructive to the environment. But that would have disrupted profits and the corporate bottom line. In the corporate wake lay millions of aches of land contaminated beyond all hope yet it’s the little guy who will tot the burden of corporate greed. *Al Gore secured a $529 million loan in U.S. taxpayer’s money for a car manufacturer (Tessla) in Iceland he is in bed with. It has changed the matrix of his “Green” agenda because now it is clear the “green” he is looking for is cash. Carbon Credits are another sham in motion. But it was only a matter of time before the true agenda was exposed since his “science” does not hold water, never has, never will.

Al embraced California’s hyped up California Auto Resources Board (CARB) and Barack Obama expanded this agenda to a national level. It is funny, in a dark way, how much of the free world bought into this scam while Putin and real science said Nyet to this foolishness. China and India will never buy into this sham either. Apparently it did not matter that CARB was using flawed if not bogus data from an imposter who claimed to be a scientist, **Hein T. Tran. And as of this writing; discrepancies and inconstancies continue to be ignored regardless of the ramifications to industry and the nation as a whole. Scientists from around the world have balked at the data as totally inaccurate yet the media as a whole simply ignored it. Here is an excerpt from the ***San Diego Union Tribune who chronicled the fraud of the 21st Century, California’s CARB AB-32 Scoping Plan;

Specific Concerns Regarding October 24, 2008 CARB Staff Report on PM 2.5 [that’s the shorthand term for fine particles 2.5 micrometers in diameter and smaller] and Premature Deaths

1) Authors have no relevant peer reviewed publications and lead author has misrepresented his “Ph.D.”

2) Report and public comments were never shown to outside reviewers as stated in Executive Summary.

3) Five independent sources indicate no current relationship between PM2.5 and deaths in California.

4) California has fourth lowest total age-adjusted death rate among US states and ew “premature deaths.”

5) Diesel toxicity and fine particulate air pollution in California are currently at record low levels.

6) Before approving new diesel regulations, CARB should fully evaluate PM2.5 and deaths in California.

Conclusion: Important epidemiologic and toxicologic evidence does not support adverse health effects of diesel claimed by CARB and new diesel regulations should be postponed until above issues are fully and fairly evaluated.

The renowned scientists, with real degrees and credentials, who reviewed the infamous CARB AB-32 Scoping Plan, are as follows;

** (Compiled by Chris Reed, editorial writer of the Union Tribune)

James E. Enstrom, Ph.D., M.P.H.

He is a 35-year lifestyle epidemiologist with the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Anthony Fucaloro, Ph.D.

He is a 35-year chemist with public policy expertise from Claremont McKenna College Joint Science Department.

Matthew A. Malkan, Ph.D.

He is a 25-year astrophysicist with the UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Robert F. Phalen, Ph.D.

He is a 35-year air pollution toxicologist with UC Irvine Air Pollution Health Effects Laboratory

In the wake of bogus science California’s economy was destroyed. This forced millions of people to loose their jobs and shuttered industries throughout the state. Arnold “The Schlock” Schwarzenegger continued to pander for Mexico’s Baja deep water port while disabling some of the most lucrative ports in the western hemisphere. Arnie waged war on the trucking industry forcing hard working American’s to loose their way of life. Other industries who depended on diesel to make their living also took a direct hit with absolutely no compensation or bail-out.

It is clear that Arnold is involved in the international corporatism movement (Globalization). He is a noted supporter of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). And as we all should know by now, this agreement hinges on the destruction of national sovereignty to all nations that sign on. It’s all about the money and corporatism. And from all indicators globalization is an act of treason by world leaders who purport this axiom.

Now the United States has taken on the “green” cause and is in the process of crippling America’s economy, and with good reason. Whence America has become bankrupt their will be a global solution to “save” the day. Like they say; a drowning man will grasp the hand of the Devil himself even if it was the Devil who tossed him into the drink. Sadly we will have sold our democracy down the river and a New World Order will arise from the ashes of our broken economy.

Disaster Capitalism at its best as the interests of a hand full of international corporations takes over the world. Just remember that about 50 of the top economies of the world are corporations. The real wealth will be distributed to a hand full of corporate thugs who dictate marching orders to the World Trade Organization.

It is a good thing the tyranny these corporate criminals are planning for the New World Order is also destined to fail for that is part of prophecy as well. Just remember that mankind will be faced with totalitarian rule but it will not come to pass. Mother Earth will have the final say for it is written that the meek shall inherit the Earth. It is ironic that no matter what man does at this juncture they are following prophecies of the ancients to the letter. One day soon we will realize what the ancients were warning us about and all the cash in the world will not alter the final outcome.

Whether it’s a Mini Ice Age or another 10,000 year run is yet to be determined but one is for sure, Al was totally wrong & people should have been warned about this known weather event.

Joys of Radiation: My Radioactive Renaissance. A Mutants Tale

Joys of Radiation: My Radioactive Renaissance. A Mutants Tale

After all the hype about the shower of radioactive death that would rain in my region of the planet I had some concerns. I was well aware that I was already exposed to plenty of radiation in my earlier years. Other than a few anomalous growths and an overwhelming desire to drink human blood I weathered my contamination quite well actually. I am comfortable in knowing that I am forever genetically altered and that my DNA double helix more resembles a wad of used chewing gum on chop sticks. Since I could not possibly escape the radioactive plume I decided to make the most of it. Continue reading

OK so our environment will have more ambient radiation than before and more cancers will evolve that coincidentally resembles radiation sickness. But for all the concerns for the ill effects of radiation exposure I really want to know if I can micro-wave a pizza outside during a nuclear event. A coronal mass ejection would be ideal with all them big juicy gamma and x-rays flying all around. And if the magnetosphere is absent on that day it’s the CME Cha Cha, beam me up Scotty. But I guess it does not matter where I am when one of them puppies explodes. So I was just thinking; I’m going to be all contaminated anyway so why not have a super power

Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity they say. Well, here I am glowing in the dark from another nuclear catastrophe and it’s about time I cash in on my radioactivness. Maybe I could get x-ray vision from my exposure, which would be cool. Hopefully I could shut it off from time to time so I don’t view everyone in the buff. I could get a job with TSA and work at the airport checking everyone out naked. The down side to x-ray vision would be the fact boobs would loose their magical appeal. After a while butts would simply look like just another stinky ass trying to find the right concourse. Hmm, forget about it. I already think the world is run by a bunch of buttheads anyway. That’s all I would need is a visual.

I could fly around like superman or something. I would not need a car or insurance and the cost of fuel, oy vey. I could zip on down to Wal-Mart or Zellers without having to find a place to part. But what would I do with all the junk I bought at the store? Maybe I could get the cashier to double bag my stuff so I don’t lose anything on the way home. That’s all I need is to whack someone on the head with a bag of dog food that dropped out of the sky. Gads, I’ve already made my attorneys rich from my anger management issues. That’s all I need are law suites for broken windows, dented cars and a few headaches from airborne groceries.

And how would I go out on a date? Would the chick need a helmet and would I have to strap her to me like a seatbelt? What if she drops a high heel and impales someone on the ground like a lawn dart? If she had a skirt on that could cause complications. Her bum would be hanging out there for the whole world to gawk at eh. Naw, think I’ll pass on that one to. Besides, the landing part would probably not be so cool. I’d crash and burn every time I landed. I’d have groceries everywhere in the pasture. Ginger the Wonder Horse and the crew would have a field day, forget about it.

Being invisible would suck for the most part, nothing like being ignored. But my biggest fear would be to materialize in front of someone only to discover that I am buck naked. I doubt my cloths would disappear since I would be the one that is radioactive but I guess I could contaminate them. I probably could contaminate everything I touched for that matter. Only problem is contamination is not invisibility. Hmm, would that be a super power? I could be Radioactive Man, a contemporary hero of the radiologically contaminated age. I could go to parties with my super powers and microwave popcorn under my armpits and warm pizza slices with my buttocks. That would get the ladies. Gads, would I be forced to wear spandex? And well, me and the boys don’t like restrictions, if you get my drift. Since we’re on the subject of genitalia and super powers ….aw skip it.

So here I am enjoying my radioactive weekend. Guess I might as well get some chicken wings and dipping stuff. I’ll also need some corn and potato chips, most likely GMO. I make my own bean dip and killer guacamole. Hmm, that reminds me, I better make my salsa to. And I think I’ll do a scientific experiment as well. I’ll pull out a few moose steaks and place them on a rack outside and see if the ambient radiation cooks the meat. Just in case, I’ll have the grill at the ready. I also have some elk but since its radiation weekend I’m going for the gusto. What better way to ingest my share of alpha and beta particles then to imbibe in a thick juicy moose steak smothered in onions and garlic with a hint of fresh sage, pepper and sea salt?

I like squirrel and other rodents prepared that way as well. They say fennel is best for long pork. I personally thought fresh spearmint worked well with all the flavors, especially in the sauce and rue. It’s sort of minty with a meat bravado that is reminiscent to lamb….Hello Clarice. In any event radiation and all its joys are here to stay. The Fukushima nuclear festival was simply a transuranic memo identifying the frailties and haplessness of man and his technologies. Many nuclear disasters preceded Fuku and unfortunately more will follow during the era we live, there is no question.

As I view the picturesque Rocky Mountains, a breeze with spring’s musings and Nippon’s Nuclear Noir embrace their liberty while dancing throughout my home in radiological flare. Actually I’ve come to the realization that I am a mutant because my DNA is surely altered by now. We are all mutants for that matter so it’s already a done deal for this generation. So what is everyone squawking about? Some of us will rot quicker than others, big deal. We do that already; we’ll just have more to rot about. Only real difference is our rate of decomposition from the varying degrees of exposure we’ve been receiving.

On the bright side, what a business opportunity radiation has to offer a guy with the right angle for a quick buck. I can see it now, me and my traveling medical show selling tinctures of lead and iodine based remedies for radiation sickness. From creams, lotions, teas and even suppositories I could have a radiological roach coach and sell potassium iodine smoothies on the side. I’ll move to Austin, Texas the roach coach capital of the world. Austin really rocks……………
