GoDaddy Rocks!

Last night I received a call from “Steve” at GoDaddy. This is where I purchase a bulk of my website domains from and have been content with their service in the past. To be fair, I have never had any issues with them and have never used their support. I figured “Steve” was going to […]

North Dakota; Real History

I found the North Dakota uncyclopedia quite amusing and almost believable in certain areas. Sometimes I wish our reputation amongst the rest of the nation was better, and other times… not so much!
