Time to Move Home

Vendor-Tech, the blog, is moving home to Vendor-Tech.com, the website.

The original plan was that Vendor-Tech.com, the website, would be for paying members of Vendor-Tech.  Vendor-Tech was to be a membership based virtual networking, or mastermind, group focused on technology and operations.

Vendor-Tech, the blog, was a way to a) experiment with blogging and b) a way to put the more timely content sent to Vendor-Tech members out in the open for anyone who wanted it.  The plan was to monetize that with Google Adsense and the occasional affiliate sale.'

So having earned an inspiring $0.04 in Adsense revenue and with only a handful of subscribers (most of which I’m convinced must be relatives), I’ve decided that maintain both sites isn’t worth the effort.

Thus Vendor-Tech, the blog, is moving home to Vendor-Tech.com, the website.

Since Vendor-Tech.com, the website, is based on Drupal, adding the blog consisted of turning on the blog option (and “discovering” where I went wrong with permissions since there is still members only content on the site).

Thanks to Feedburner, my relatives will still get the feeds (great benefit of Feedburner).

All the posts (I think) got moved automatically.  I know of at least one post with a problem in its embedded link, if you find more, please let me know.

I get one less site to maintain content on.

Vendor-Tech.com, the website, gets the SEO benefits of having a blog.

You can still get the great (at least I think so) content.

Everyone wins.

What Happens in Vegas Gets Stolen

At the request of a fellow blogger whose camera was "appropriated" at CES,

Do you know what this is? To the untrained eye you see a battery charger for a Canon Digital camera, an expensive camera I might add. But the trained eye sees the lone survivor of a Canon G9 stolen within 2 minutes of being put down at the Silverstone Booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center. We can tell you that the charger is horribly sad and feels lost without the battery he so looked forward to charging. So sad indeed that he may soon feel it necessary to chuck himself into the nearest trash can and wait for a gruesome landfill death.

Now we at TechwareLabs are all about forgiveness and we would ideally love to buy a steak dinner for the kind individual who "finds" our Canon G9 or even the 8GB Blue Class 6 ATP memory card with our precious photos on it. We have given our information to the security at the lost and found at the LVCC South Hall bottom floor who knows how to reach us. If you are the lucky winner of the steak dinner you can call us at 407-808-4354.


See You Next Year

I've been quiet over the holidays, other priorities take precedence.

That will change "next year" (aka next week) when I'm at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

Until then, have a great new year.
