Hi guys, it’s been a great weekend so far, weather  is  nice and as always I have dozens of projects that I’m working and wanted to share some updates with you.

TopDrops.com – I’m almost finished with payment integration, but it’s taking a little longer because I’m using a new php framework and there is a little learning curve. But it’s getting there.

 

VPS – I have a linux VPS server (virtual private server) hosting account, I host a lot of sites in that box. I’m going to do some .NET development and wanted to get a Windows VPS server and after a little research, I got one this week. At this point, I needed one for development and so I needed a basic one. I got one from SoftSysHosting.com, I can’t review it yet as I’m still in process of installing stuff, but seems great for around $15/m.

 

Gmail BUG – I think Gmail is having some kind of bug. I have several gmail accounts that forward emails to one main account. At least a couple of my gmail accounts have stopped forwarding. It maybe because I hadn’t logged into those accounts for a long time, and google may have implemented some kind of disable feature. Did anyone else have this issue?

 

Podcasts – I’ve started listening to a couple of Startup podcasts and I really like it. The one I like most is startupsfortherestofus.com. It’s a great way to get inspired, so I highly recommend it to anyone. One issue is that unlike blogs, frequency of new podcasts is much lower. They are done at most around once a week. I’m still in process of discovering other podcasts. There are also a handful domaining podcasts, I haven’t tried them yet. I had an idea to do my own podcast but not sure on that yet.

 

Domainer Tool – I’ve started the planning for the next major domainer tool that I want to create. I want to create an all in one tool for domain management, research and discovery. I think that this is a major pain that needs to be addressed. Most domainers use Excel to manage their portfolio and to me, that’s unacceptable. In this day and age of technology, there should be a better option. The other thing is that most domainers want to keep their portfolio private and usually, manage them on their workstation. Therefore, I’m leaning towards more of a  desktop tool. I’m still in planning stages on this tool. If you’d like to see a specific feature in it, drop me a line.
