First of all, PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS PART:

Anti 2DVirus 2D1 thumb Info you should know about Phony Virus Popup Alerts

Win Antivirus Vista/XP is phony antispyware software made to look like a legitimate security software for Microsoft Vista and XP. Win Antivirus Vista/XP is a scam and should be avoided.

WinAntivirus Vista/XP makes it’s way onto computer systems via installations that automatically start after visiting infected websites. When this parasite enters the system, it performs quick system scan and reports bogus results about security problems, privacy issues and other errors. All those infections are made fake, designed to frighten people into thinking they need to buy this corrupt software to fix their PC infections. The reality is WinAntivirs Vista/XP is the real infection.

Got Googled

Posted on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 in Uncategorized

After making a few changes to my web site in order to get it ranking a bit better, I ran a google search on a few terms in hopes that this site would pop up. During this process, I found some pretty funny SERPs about me.

Here’s a couple that kept me a bit entertained:

Fakers and their Ignorant Victims

Posted on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 in Uncategorized

I’m not sure why, but for the last few days I’ve been corresponding to a girl on Facebook who claims she has met me, that she’s my girlfriend, and that she’s going to be moving in with me soon. Obviously, she’s really misinformed and there’s a couple of times where I really thought she may have been crazy.

In reality, this isn’t the first time this has happened. Before I get into this, let me tell you a short story of a similar occurrence which left me baffled.

My Opinions on using Flash for Web Design

flash fail My Opinions on using Flash for Web Design

There have been many times when a client asks me about using flash to build their web site. I usually immediately let out an internal sigh and begin to think about ways to explain to him why it’s not always the best idea. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not against using flash for design, but I believe that if you can make the web site function the same using XHTML/CSS or Javascript, why use flash? Flash shouldn’t be for building full web sites in my opinion. It should only be used to create elements on your site which cannot be programmed with normal use of XHTML/CSS or Javascript.

Here are a few things about flash that every designer & client should consider

Trooper VS Ambulance Driver

Posted on Tuesday, June 16, 2009 in News

I become more and more disappointed every day with America’s state troopers and police departments. I’ve got way too many stories of incidences where they were incredibly wrong and no one has done anything about it.

People didn’t just begin hating cops for the hell of it. There’s obviously many reasons why the police departments are not only feared, but abhorred.

Today I read an article in the news about a state trooper in Oklahoma City, Daniel Martin, who decided to pull over an ambulance. He was Bothered when the ambulance driver failed to yield to him as he raced to provide backup on a call and thought the driver flipped him an obscene gesture.

The troopers’ lawyer claimed he didn’t realize there was a patient in the back of the ambulance. The patient in the back of the ambulance was being taken to the hospital and his son rode with them. The son proceeded to take out his cell phone and video tape the incident from the back of the ambulance and captured the whole thing.

Apparently, once the trooper pulled them over, a Paramedic jumped out from the back and demanded that Martin speak with him instead of the driver.

“You get back into the ambulance, I’m talking to the driver,” the trooper yelled.

The paramedic replied, “I’m in charge of this unit, sir.”

Martin tells the driver he’s going to get a ticket for failure to yield. “I ain’t going to be putting up with that shit,” Martin said. “You understand Me!?”

Then the paramedic said, “And I won’t be putting up with you talking to my driver like that.”

The situation kept getting worse and escalating while the paramedic repeatedly told Martin he had a patient he needed to take to the hospital and Martin just kept yelling for him to get back into the ambulance.

The trooper later claimed he didn’t know there was a patient in the back and that he either didn’t hear it or it didn’t register.

I personally believe he didn’t give a shit. His pride was hurt and all of a sudden he must have felt that he was right, as most cops do in a situation like that. This was way out of control and got to a point where the trooper grabbed the paramedic by the neck and proceeded to try arresting him.

These type of stories are becoming all too common these days. Troopers are filled with control issues and feel that their badge gives them the right to act so ridiculous that even stopping an ambulance seems like it’s an okay thing to do. What I don’t get is, if he was in a rush to provide backup to another officer, what the hell gave him enough time to do a traffic stop? It makes no sense to me and never will. No need to cry like a little bitch with a skinned knee and shit just because he was not “yielded” to.

What kind of society has this become where we have bullies with badges running around full of ego and letting it get in the way of their job. Someone needs to do some deflating around here…

If you’re looking for some tips on optimizing your PHP code, here’s a great article I found on another site a few years ago. Unfortunately, that site is no longer up so I decided to post it to help anyone else out who may be looking for ways to optimize PHP code.

  1. If a method can be static, declare it static. Speed improvement is by a factor of 4.
  2. echo is faster than print.
  3. Use echo’s multiple parameters instead of string concatenation.
