I always seem to be downloading and running different platforms & software either for my websites of local machine. I run FreeNas 9.3 for my home server, love my Linux Mint distro, and loath the thought of being on Windows 8.1. I didn’t even take the free update to Windows 10. Why you might ask? Because if it’s free then you are the product. This applies to Microsoft and not Linux as it’s community driven. My point is that while I am building computers, setting up the podcast studio or learning VMWare to run whatever OS I want, it’s always something new. That “new” could be good or bad and that is why I want to review it.

If you have something particular you want me to check out and review then please send over an email and let me know. If it’s paid software I may pass on the idea depending on what it does and how much it costs. I want to focus on the platforms & software that many people will likely be using or thinking about switching from their old stuff to the new stuff.

It's been a bit over a month now with my payment for $240/year to SSDNodes on April 14, 2017. My last host, which was Wiredtree, cost almost $750/yr so I was able to cut two-thirds of my annual costs and got 8 times the server. I knew 2017 was going to be a budget year for me. Trimming the fat where I can wasn't really much of a choice as I move into starting my own business and living on a

R.I.P. Wiredtree, No To Liquid Web, But Hello SSDNodes

It's "host choosing time" and it only took 4 months for me to make a decision on the future home of my websites, apps, and whatever else I want to host. My hosting company sold out to a bigger competitor at the end of 2016. Hosting companies come and go and this is just the technology "circle of life". Technology moves fast and as startups come, they go just as quickly which is why we get a new Apple or
