Maybe they’re right….

May 21 2011 Will Be The Day of JudgementI made a brief mention of this burgeoning apocalyptic movement a few weeks ago. It came as quite a shock to me to see this billboard in the west end of Toronto, Canada. It’s not like we’re in the midst of the bible belt up here.

Also recall my observation and experience a few years ago with the whole “06/06/06” date thing, where people went into a near hysteria over the flimsiest correlations, I have been warning of people to brace for near epic 2012 panic as it draws closer. But these May 21, 2011 folks are jumping the … Read the rest

Beyond the shadow of a doubt, May 21 will be the date of the Rapture and the day of judgment

I have remarked privately that once 2011 hit, the ramp-up to the impending 2012 hysteria would seriously begin to build (it may overpower the next presidential election).

We get an early preview with an emergent Christian sect declaring judgment day is (literally) around the corner. If you’re still here by May 22 this year, then you’re not saved and it’ll all be over by October.

“Beyond the shadow of a doubt, May 21 will be the date of the Rapture and the day of judgment,” he said.

On the Implications of providing DNS for Wikileaks

It may not have taken long for us to lose our first customer as a result of taking on DNS for wikileaks.ch (who knows if we lost any for incorrectly blamed for unplugging them in the first place). One of the support guys just relayed the following from a customer:

He and his clients disapprove of easyDNS position and our open support of Wikileaks.”

We may be hearing more of that in the days to come.

Taking this on was for us more … Read the rest

Where I’ve been blogging lately…..

The two or three of you who read my blog on a semi-regular basis (Hi Mom!) may be wondering where I’ve been lately. Or not. The fact of the matter is, I’ve been blogging elsewhere…..

I have been blogging on the topic of applying the principals of “value investing” as espoused by the likes of Warren Buffet, Charlie Munger, Seth Klarman, Prem Watsa, et al to the relatively incompatible field of “new media”. That is: investing in publicly traded internet and new media companies, or private assets such as web sites, web businesses and domain names. That’s been happening over … Read the rest

Phone spam, telemarketing and junk faxes, how much does it affect you?

Everytime I get an automated phone call trying to sell me something, or a junk fax come through on my home line, I basically become incensed. Tonight I got one of each: an automated robot trying to sell me something and an attempt to send me a junk fax on my home voice line.

For years I have been telling myself “one of these days I’m going to….” you know, actually do something about it. Because I’ve actually got an idea worked out that would be pretty effective at making all this crap go away.

So when … Read the rest
