Week 9 – 2014

This is my first weekly update which replaces the daily update. This week could have been better. I received my T-Mobile bill, and noticed there was a discrepancy in my data for my Nexus 7. After talking with a half of dozen people (literally), and went through a range of email communications, I have the problem partially solved. It would seem that 30 days after I activated the tablet, my data is terminated even though I am supposed to get 200MB for the life of the tablet. A support ticket was sent to the engineer, but this could be as late as the first Monday of March for someone to address it. In the meantime, I am stuck having to get a 500MB data added to my bill, and the representative couldn’t even do that correctly. Email support fixed that, and promises to refund the charges for the 500MB while I fight to get my 200MB for that I am entitled too.

It got extremely cold this week again, but I managed to walk the dogs a few time. However, there were also a couple of days where it was dangerously cold for them to be going for a walk. Of course, they got to play indoors which is nice and warm. Talisa especially loves to sleep under the wool blanket at night. The dogs are doing well, although one of them misplaced the Kong toy again so I had to put the other one up until I take the time to look for it.

Businesses Should Have a .TEL

With the cost of Directory Assistance in many cases being $2.00, and the fact that finding a specific entry could be easier said than done, it would seem as if businesses would have a .TEL. They are cheap, and requires no additional hosting demands. And unless a company is regularly updating something, they would just have to be set up one time. Now, I am a fan of .TEL, and have a few of them myself, but it would make simply make sense. The bigger the business, the more sense it makes.

The reason for this is as smart phones, and even internet connected cell phones grow in popularity, the idea of being able to pull information that is needed comes into people’s mind. It should make sense to go to company.tel and get the needed contact information. In the case of franchises, there could be something like store-no.company.tel. A person with a basic phone can simply go to the particular site, and search for a particular store within a certain distance. On that page would be everything the customer needs such as the manager, address, Google Maps integration, telephone numbers, and fax numbers. They could also put in notes such as bus routes, and what services are offered. Simply put, they offer more than a Yellow or White Page entry.

December 12

Today was a bit of a productive day. Chris spent the night at my place last night, and stayed a while until the early afternoon when he went back home. He slept in though (until 9AM) where I was up about 5:30AM.

I took a bath as I normally did, turned the speaker off on the PC, and used the hall light rather than the Living Room light. I spent a part of the morning working on the Fantasy site that will soon replace the Wealth site. Chris eventually woke up, and spent a little time before leaving.

Family Contact Directory – Minor Upgrade

The family contact directory located at http://www.pilone.tel/ has received a minor upgrade. Tel Hosting which is in control of all .tel domains as for hosting, and DNS goes added a feature to allow a small image to be posted in individual directories.

The Family Directory is very limited. There are only 5 members in the directory, and only two of them have anything that warranted complete listing. In turn, these two will have a QR code with the relevant contact information for that person. However, this information is compressed, and at least with using the Android application – it was hard to get the details to be recognized by the device.
