DOMAINS: What email to use for website registration

Never use gmail, yahoo, or any of the usual email providers for your website registration

This is a disaster waiting to happen. Never use certain types of web based emails for administrative purposes.

May I suggest that you have your own domain? The common wisdom, or is that common whizdumb, is to own your own name as a domain name. I own “reinke.cc”. (I like saying “sea sea me at reinke.cc”! me@reinke.cc will actually work!) I gives one quite a bit of control. And, it’s very cheap. I know three solutions at 15$/year using wordpressdotcom with gmail, 25$/year email only with 1and1, and 60$/year for domain+email+webspace also at 1and1. My point is not that you should use 1and1. http://www.1and1.com/?k_id=9113251 I could care less which one you use. It’s that getting on to your own domain with email is cheap and easy. And, it’s not hotmail, yahoo, or gmail. It IS your own “personal brand”.

ADMINISTRIVIA: BLUNDERINGALONG was smashed by WSP

 

BLUEHOST made some kind of change. BUNDERINGALONG was offline. And, it was totally lost. Luckily Google had a cached copy of one of the posts. I could identify the theme. Put that back. Reuploaded the old posts. I have to recreate the CATEGORIES and any other settings. Argh!

IDENTIFICATION: Proving identity

*** begin quote ***
Proving identity is likely to remain remarkably difficult in a world where it is trivial to take over someone’s computer from half a world away and operate it as your own. As long as that remains true, building a completely trustable system will remain virtually impossible.
*** end quote ***

I don’t agree.

Every Internet Service Provider KNOWS who’s paying the bill for connectivity.

They can ENFORCE identification for every computer that connects to their circuits.

It’s not just “retail” either. Businessed have to connect or “peer”. They know what is coming through their transit points.

Sorry, but IPv6 or proper administration would allow age verification and identity management.

The ISPs aren’t interested because the current problems are no skin off their nose.

It’s all about the benjamins.

APPLE: Genius bar helped some what

dk (1) Wifi reconnect incessantly after apply the last airport upgrade. Am I missing something?

Nothing obvious. Can see the intermittent problem. Need to leave it for a hardware check. Argh!

ok (2) Removing applications. Do I need a cleaner?

No registry so nothing needed.

no (3) iWeb partial publish to 1and1?

No! Software can’t do it. Maybe IWEB09? Don’t know yet.

no (4) ipconfig /release /renew /all in “Mac Book Air” land?

Can’t do it with the wifi airport. If you’d do a hardwire lan, you can. (Argh!)

no (5) redefine paste to always be “unformatted”

No, that’s application specific.

ok (6) Security How do I restrict access to my machine when I’m on a lan?

Can force users to limited roles. Checked settings. I’m OK.

ok (7) Proper disconnect of the Verizon dongle

Just yank it. No big deal.

Of course IWEB in the ICLOUD is gone. With it went several sites I had deployed with it. 

All the rest is obsolete.

WEBSITE: MOODLE for jobseekers

Playing around with the idea of a seeker’s course.

Update 2017-03Mar-11

It was a bust and was crashed by Chinese hackers. Along with my Jasper Wiki.

Maybe I’ll revisit those “great ideas someday. Argh!

WEBSITE: Moving RFL to hosted

http://www.reinkefaceslife.com/ is currently hosted on the free, and unequaled, wordpress dot com. To use javascript, it has to be hosted elsewhere. Sadly, I have to move. Argh.

I registered reinkefacedlife on bluehost. I installed wordpress (v 2622). I exported reinkefaceslife. But couldn’t import it. Argh!

<the story will continue>

Gave up on that idea. If I ever do move, I’ll hire someone to do it.

LESSONS LEARNED: Watch how you start stuff; it’s hard — if not impossible — to change horses in any stream! Argh!
