Paying To Read Blogs??
While doing some browsing this afternoon, I came across PixelPass. With this, bloggers add “one line of code” to their template pages of their blogging engine to create an obscure image over the blog. For readers to read the blog, they must click the link and pay.

However, I don’t think you should force someone to pay just to read your blog. If that’s the case, write an article and publish it somewhere. What do you think?Read More

It took me about 15 minutes until it dawned on me that maybe I didn’t un-check the expire password option on the SQL account. Wow, don’t make that mistake in an enterprise environment unless you plan on changing those passwords and staying on top of it! I guess by un-checking it I just threw out a best practice.Read More
