Looking Like An Idiot Is Embarrassing – Read The Directions Stupid

Do you read the directions and installation instructions? Every time? I don’t and, no, I’m not going to use being a man as an excuse for not reading instruction. I’ll just use it as an excuse for not learning to read them after dozens of “learning experiences”. lol

Geeking Out On Cheap Tech – The Bluetooth Camera Remote

Am I the last one to know about Bluetooth camera remotes (remote shutter release)? I have a cheap $3 mini-tripod I grabbed from the discount shelf of one of those evil discount store chains. It came with a little key fob looking camera remote that I tossed aside and ignored. Until now…

Lunch Date Lessons – I’m A Fortunate Geek That Believes In Signs?

It’s Friday just before Independence day but I’m going to break the norm and post about something other than Freedom. I love my Freedom but just had other thoughts while sitting at a Chinese restaurant with my wife today. A little technology, business, and gratitude.

Outrage Over The Outrage – Supreme Court & Gay Marriage

I created this image (Facebook post) in response to a couple of self righteous, scared, and judgmental friends and family members posting about the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor on gay marriage.

I figured I post a non-watermarked version of the image for anyone to use. No need to ask, that’s why I’m posting it. Feel free to take it and use it. Please download it, however, so your image is no longer on this server. That slows my websites down.

Thanks, Brian

Twitter CleanUp – Thinking About Dumping

I just spent 2 hours cleaning up 6 of my Twitter accounts; removing the inactives and non-followers.

Last year I purchased one year of Business that expires in a little over a week. I have over dozen Twitter accounts so I really need at least the Business+ membership but I don’t want it bad enough to fork out even close to $479.88 for the next year. I’m certainly not paying $50.99/month for the monthly plan.

Even to keep the Business Plan (6 Twitter profiles) I’d need to pay $239.88 for another year by Jul 9th. That is still too high.

Truthfully would be worth the investment if I took advantage of the complete program with all of features but I just log in every month or two for a quick clean-up. I haven’t been one to aggressively grow my accounts. I pretty much allow my accounts to grow organically by following back who look like real people that aren’t spammy, playing the follow to unfollow game, Tweet in English, and are actively using Twitter.

If anyone have a better Twitter Management solution let me know. I just want a program that will allow around a dozen accounts and check follows -vs- unfollowers and activity stats.
