Check it out, I signed up for a web-site monitoring service called mon.itor.us and received my first weekly report recently:
Yeah! This blog had better up-time than Google last week! My host for this blog is bluehost. So far I’ve had very few to no issues with them and they are always quick to respond to my e-mails. For the low, low price of $6.95 / month it’s tough to beat bluehost. Note, those are affiliate links so if you do choose to purchase some hosting from bluehost it helps me out with paying for the hosting costs of this blog and you get great hosting for a low cost. A win-win situation!
I’ve increased the post text size and made the post width a little bit wider while combing the two sidebar columns into one. I’m going through a minimalist phase and will look to move or more of the sidebar deals into other places or simply remove them to give this blog a nice clean easy to read look. As always, let me know via a comment here or an e-mail how you feel about the new look.
There are still way too many categories on this site and in the sidebar to the right but slowly I’m converting some categories to tags to decrease the huge list. Over time the categories list will be broken down to ten or less very high-level areas with the tags being used for specificity.
Instead of listing the various social networks I’m a part of in my sidebar, I created a page solely to list any social networks I’ve joined so you can keep up with me in my dealings all over the intertubes.
I discovered a curious reference to this site today, the site, cheat house (which I will not link to due to Google Adsense policies), hosted a paper by a student and check out one of his/her references:
It appears this student used my paper comparing U.S. accounting standards to international accounting standards as a reference for his/her paper.
That’s all for today. Hope everyone has a nice relaxing Sunday.
