    Facts I've Learned About Trying to Quit Smoking

    It's a tax loophole thing, pipe tobacco is taxed lower than rolling tobacco.  So most is sold as dual purpose to avoid the high cigarette tax. I've heard the best seeds are imported from England, but again, in the US, you are allowed to grow for yourself, but the minute you sell it, here...

    Facts I've Learned About Trying to Quit Smoking

    Definitely cheaper, I figure it is about 80c a pack, but cleaner is debatable.  I am able to buy locally 1lb of not the worst tobacco and 3 boxes of tube for $18, makes about 600 smokes, and I am able to knock out a few packs in the time it takes to watch a 1/2 hour show. For those doing...

    Starting a VPS business with $10,000. How would you spend it?

    I started with $400 10 years ago next month, so you have not accomplished much yet.  This business rolls with the same cycles as the general world economies.  Let me know what you are doing after the next recession.

    Anyone running solar powered stuff at home?

    Your age is starting to rot your brain ;)  I'd love to make some use of Solar, heat would be my #1 desire in the winter, even though it is ~60 this week, baseboard heat is not cheap, but as a renter, and walking distance to the colo, I'll stay put.

    Dacentec - Unreliable Network Ran by Amateurs - Recommendations

    Does it? Or does the fault rest with the clients? Companies are budgeting what the client is willing to pay.  Not everyone is willing to pay $1k/mo per cabinet in a properly built facility, and when the customer cuts corners on cost and does suffer the eventual failure, why is the DC to blame...

    Host your own DNS or use a DNS specialist company?

    As my golden rule, if you don't have root, don't use it. I host my own DNS, cPanel DNSONLY and PowerDNS, all are diverse and if there is a problem, I have nobody but myself to blame and can fix the issue in minutes, when there is one.  very rare I have DNS issues, and when my users have issues...

    How visitors can trust on your hosting business?

    This is worth $0, you are only accredited if you pay them, and anyone who pays gets accredited. BBB is as big a scam as SSL certs and the browser mafia.
