Come On Tell Me Off

 

Circa 1996, after the demise of Landslide, I briefly formed a band called Jr. & The Logic Bombs, with Pete Dekoker. Dan “Scoop” Miles was supposed to be the drummer but we recorded one song with Billy Wallace. I can’t remember where we recorded it, either at Paul Venno’s place or else it was Ted Treibner‘s,

In either case we ended up releasing it on 3.5″ floppy drive. To get the file small enough, we did it in mono and called it the world’s first “hypertext-mono-floppy-single”.

Who are the Best Domain Registrars?

Lifehacker is doing another"Who is the Best Registrar" survey, and of course we've been out there tweeting and #fb-ing for everybody to head on over there and vote….for us :) Of course.

A few come to mind:

Hover.com: Hover really nails simplicity and streamlining things, and in fact they've sat down with us and helped us streamline some of our processes. Because we are so "DNS-centric" we sometimes over-complicate things and lose sight that a … Read the rest
