This Blog has Moved

It wasn’t all that long ago I moved the blog off the Quick Blogcast on to WordPress.com. It was just a little over 3-months ago I made that move. Today I moved the blog on to WordPress.org. I decided I would give WordPress.org a try to see how easy it is to work with and what options are available here that are not with the WordPress.com. I do not have any plans on moving the other two blogs (Email Mafia and FF Extension Guru) any time soon. So far the only issue I ran into was with the YouTube videos….

New Photo Album gallery.elguru.me

Over the past couple years I have had several online photo albums, some free and some paid. I have now consolidated all them into a new online photo album at gallery.elguru.me using the application is Zen Photo. The application is free, but does require a web server/hosting account which supports PHP and MySQL. The initial installation was a bit of challenge even with my knowledge of setting up applications it did take a little work getting my all PHP settings adjusted. I was also a little taken aback that I had to manually update the configuration file with my database…

Pondering Linux

Note: I am posting this both on my personal El Guru and Firefox Extension Guru’s Blogs to get as much feedback as I can on this. As some my long time Firefox Blog readers may recall I had experimented a bit back in 2007 with Linux Ubuntu. Never really got a chance to do much with it as about six-months after I had installed Ubuntu I had to replace the computer. Given everything I do online, I could not be without a computer for a few days. Because of this I could not go my usual route and have one…

Microsoft to Buy AOL?

Most of the articles on The Microsoft Blog I don’t pay much attention to. However, the article Poll: Would Microsoft benefit from acquiring AOL? did catch my attention. I think I was more shocked that AOL is still around more so than Microsoft having interest in buying it. I voted (as did the majority of the readers) No! AOL is nearly dead and would be a giant waste of money! I suppose Microsoft figures they still have plenty of money to waste. They’ve only had to pay out billions in settlements and judgments from class-action and anti-trust law suits. So…

We’ve Moved

It was about a year ago I had started the blog.elguru.me with GoDaddy’s Quick Blogcast platform. The year has come to an end and I have decided to move this blog over to WordPress. While the Quick Blog did have some nice features such as font formatting, I just found it lacking in other areas. I’ve been using WordPress.com for nearly 4-years so I am more familiar and use to working with this platform. For the most part I was able to recover and re-post most of the entries from the past year. I know there a couple early entries…
