Membership has its priviledges

I just became a Daring Fireball member. I did so because I hadn’t done it before, though I wanted to… just didn’t feel like John was putting out a product that was worth it as a part time job.

Now that he’s doing it full-time, I’m super excited about reading his full-time posts… and I figured I should support his efforts.

I even bought a t-shirt.

Good luck John. And thanks.

Got $20? Go become a member. Got $30? Buy a t-shirt too. Support a good cause.

.info domain sale

.info this TaraMy friend Mark Engelhardt, owner of IntuitiveISP IM’d me last night to tell me about his $1.99 sale on .info domains. $1.99? That’s a great deal… better than GoDaddy or anywhere else I’ve seen them…

I figured it’s too good a deal to pass up, so I registered a few cool short .info domains, and will see if someone wants to buy them in the next 12 months… it’s only $2, right?

Anyways, if you’re looking for a good domain, and the .com, .net, etc. variations are taken… see if the .info version is open, and if it is, go buy it for $1.99 from IntuitiveISP… Mark’s a great guy and gets all of my domain name business and has for about 5 years now.

Oh, sale ends 4/30/2006, so register it this month if you’re want to save a little cash… Domain names make great presents ;)

Mac’s Moment

Mac’s Moment from the WSJ – an interesting article talking about how now may be the time the Mac makes a move into more businesses… not sure I agree or disagree, but who knows. I’m linking to it because I interviewed with Chuck, who’s quoted in the first section, back when I got out of the Army some 5 or 6 years ago… cool… Chuck’s a great guy.
