Nice Tie

So Jake reminded me of Uncrate today so I started looking it over.  I came across these nice Ties that are sold at Ulterior Motive.  I want one of each, except they are close to $50 a pop.  This one is one of my favorites for sure.

Not only did Jake remind me of Uncrate but he also pointed out ProductDose they are hosted by the good folks over at Liquid Web as well.

HostingCon.2006 and the Vegas Experience Explained

I thought that I would take a minute to sit back and write about the whole trip to HostingCon 2006 in Las Vegas. The drive to Vegas began at 8am on a Sunday, I got there by 11:15am. It was a very hot drive, the Worlds Biggest Thermometer claimed it to be 120 degrees out. After getting to Vegas I just dinked around and got situated for Monday morning. Out of the many pointless trips I have made to Vegas this was not one of them. All in all HostingCon wasn’t as great as I thought it was going to be, but then again I have never been to something like it so maybe I was just expecting more. The exhibit hall was pretty impressive… well most of it was anyways. I got a ton of free Pens, shirts and some other odds and ends. Liquid Web, Microsoft and Modernbill seemed to have the best booths there, the others were just so so. Anyways I learned a lot about SEO/PPC which was my main goal for going. I also learned a lot about Google and how their search engine does the rankings which was pretty interesting. They take a lot of different things into account that I never would have thought of checking. Besides HostingCon I got to hang out with Brian and his Girlfriend which was cool. One of the nights we ended up at the Palms, saw Robert Duvall and ended up in a hotel party on the 26th Floor of the Palms. Was a sweet view and a nice room, Lil John was even at the party hanging out. The night didn’t end there, but it did end when I was escorted out of the strip club. Gotta love Vegas. On the last night I was there I found a Sony DSC N-1 Camera at a club. Its pretty slick, I can say its better than any other camera I have ever owned.
