Our website was down yesterday for several hours very simply because certain software (well-known software) did not perform as advertised (as happens from time to time with software).

We have now established that evolutionists believe in intelligent design. This is the intelligent design of BIO-AI (Biological Artificial Intelligences). These BIO-AI are called epochal retroviruses. This changes everything. Get ready, Supreme Court!
There are many things that make a good computer program. I should know because I’ve been writing programs for decades. I just want to mention one. A good computer program is:
A program that, when it has a problem, does not require you to jump through hoops to fix it. That is, you shouldn’t have to follow 20 steps, or even 10, to get the program fixed.
If you have a program like that:
Get rid of it.
After I installed Windows 8 on my netbook, my netbook began crashing 5 to 10 times a day.
Firefox on my netbook crashes 20 to 30 times a day.
On my netbook (“small laptop”), AOL Desktop 10.1 is a thousand times better than the newer AOL Desktop 9.7. The version number confusion is due to the fact that the two software represent two different subfamilies of AOL’s desktop software. One advantage of 10.1 is that it gives you more space to view and type emails. Another is automatic signature insertion and, another, automatic cursor positioning. I could go on.
In conclusion, I don’t know why AOL even bothered with 9.7.
Today, we launched the newest generation of our SQL Server–dedicated website – SQL Server Solutions.
This was a cloud-computing project that utilized multiple technologies, including AWS (Amazon Web Services), including RDS and EC2, Hadoop, Hive, Pig, Redshift, SQL Server, MySQL, MySQL Workbench, and SSIS. SQL Server and MySQL databases and SSIS were hosted in the AWS cloud and the following tasks were completed:
- Upgraded SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2008 R2 then applied SP3.
- Created SQL Server and MySQL logical and physical models.
- Created SQL Server and MySQL databases on both local and cloud servers.
- Created SSIS packages to load SQL Server databases on both local and cloud servers.
- Created and compiled SQL Server digital, educational library.
- Created and compiled MySQL digital, educational library.
- Designed SQL Server to SSIS to MySQL architecture.
- Installed SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 on both local and cloud servers.
- Installed MySQL and MySQL Workbench on both local and cloud servers.
- Installed SSIS, SSAS, and SSRS.
- Developed accelerated, table generation tools.
- Performed troubleshooting of numerous system components, including SSIS packages.
- Used Embarcadero to translate diverse RDBMS DDL database generation SQL scripts.
- Used Visual Studio 2008 to create SSIS packages.
We have removed Infolinks (dark green, double-underlined links) from our website. These links provided pop-up advertisements for other websites and both the links and the pop-up advertisements took you to those websites if you clicked on them. We only made 45 cents in around 2 and 1/2 weeks and our visitorship dropped dramatically.
