The Eve of a Perfect Storm

Folks, this evening we sit on what I will call the eve of a perfect storm. As we fill our night with Netflix and Facebook, the world we once knew is dying. Pre-covid. Pre-masks. Pre-lockdowns. Pre-2020. A time when we could gather with friends and neighbors, strike up conversations with strangers in the supermarket, or […]

Why Can’t We Do Whatever We Want?

The 4-hour work week

In the next 24 hours, I made several simple but emotionally difficult decisions that changed my life forever. First, I decided to stop pursuing most of my customers so I could profile and duplicate the most profitable ones. I was spending most of my time working on small accounts, when the big five already ordered […]

PayPal is down

You guys gotta hold off on buying me a beer cause PayPal has been down for the last half hour or so… Boy, the stores that depend on this service for all their sales must be getting a little irate by now… Lots of lost revenue… Technorati Tags: Paypal, outage

How to Save Money on Phone Calls

Looks like some people have come up with a way to save some minutes by using Grand Central. (a free switchboard phone service) I doubt this loophole will exist for long.
