To all the people who don’t understand this domain name is not for sale:

What part of this page (http://ddt.com/?page_id=972) do you people simply do not understand? I am continuously amazed at the complete lack of work some people put into researching whether a domain name is for sale or not.  It is truly sad that a so-called businessperson has so little ability to do less than 1 minute of research.  There is one line on that page that is so simple to understand “This domain is still in use by its owner for email and other support services. It is not for sale.” The latest excuse was that the page was read, but … Continue reading

My host was scrambled for a few days…

Sorry about the website being down.  It was beyond my control.  My host suffered some trouble while upgrading their hosting services and a lot of stuff went crazy for a bit there. Chez David is back online.

Install Mozilla’s Firefox (any version). Install the Adblock Plus plugin/add-on. Install the following 4 filters verbatim including the pipes ‘|’ and any other non-standard characters by adding them under Adblock … Continue reading

The right to own what you buy in this digital age.

The right of first sale. You bought a software package a few years back.  You came home & installed it on your computer.  Now you want to buy a different software package because it is more up to date.  You decided to go with a completely different software package simply because it has more bells & whistles than your original software package or maybe it’s just easier to use.  Chances are, you will be able to uninstall the original software package and remove it from your computer system completely.  BIG HOWEVER: you are not going to be able to re-sell … Continue reading
