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.

Today being Sunday, not much happened. I decided on a name for the Pit Bull that I will hopefully be getting soon. I also sent an questionnaire to Hello Bully to hopefully get the Pit Bull neutered at a low cost. He will also need vaccinations, and micro-chipped. I also chatted with the person that will be giving the Pit Bull, and she is happy to hopefully be giving him to me. Once I decided on the name, I acquired the .TEL domain for him, and added him to the Pilone.NAME site. Otherwise, not much else went on.

As for plans for tomorrow, I will be trying to get a hold of Chris, drop off a couple of pieces of mail, and make a few phone calls. As for the new sites for the Pit Bull, his contact information is located at http://malak.tel/ In case anyone is interested, Malak is Angel in Arabic.

Updates on the Hunt

For some that know me, knows I have a pet dog, and seeking another one. And while I love animals, two will be the maximum I will have – especially considering my financial well being, and the room that I have available. After checking with shelters, and wanting too much for the dog, and conditions that I can not meet to their standards, I have lost most of my options. With regular postings to Craigslist, and some immature group of ignoramus a$$holes flagging my ads, and therefore forcing me to post again makes my hunt even harder.

I have found one that needs a new home, and a good dog. No other real information was provided. So after not receiving a reply, I called the number in the ad, and he wanted $300 or best offer. I told him have a good day, and hung up. Seriously, if I had $300, I could have got a pure bred, or better yet, get one at the shelter. So, my ad for seeking a dog and provide a good home to it is flagged, but this one is able to keep his post online. I am guessing that only No Strings Attached sex personal ads get to be assured on.

What TelNIC can do to improve

TelNic is the registry authority of the .TEL domains (such as fsp.tel, or pilone.tel). It is not a web site service, and there are some restrictions that apply to .TEL domains that don’t apply to other domains. This is a feature of the .TEL, and not at all any disadvantage. However, there are a few things that TelNIC can do to improve their services. These are suggestions based on my experience with their services, as I am an owner of a few .TEL domains.

Now, to understand why I am making these suggestions, one may have to know what is the .TEL, and what it does. If you are already familiar with .TEL, just skip this paragraph. First, a .TEL uses the Internet infrastructure, but does not provide many things that you would normally find on the Internet. You would not get web site services (at least in a traditional sense), you would not have FTP, SSH, WebDav, Email, or Jabber Services. In addition, you can not move your .TEL to a hosting service. TelNIC controls the hosting of all .TEL Domains, and therefore – everyone – no matter the registrar has the same experience after they acquire the domain. You would register a .TEL just like any other domain, and the only difference is the DNS control. Instead, when you go to a .TEL domain, you would find a simplistic layout that is WML, WAP, HTML-Mobile, and HTML-Desktop compliant. This is done as all of the details are located in DNS records, and when a page is requested, the server discovers the type of browser, and inserts the appropriate DNS entries in a template that provides an optimized experience for the device. A person would see the HTML version if he goes to the site with a PC (the HTML code is in a template), and a WML version if they go on a basic cell phone such as Motorola W370. This is all handled by the server code on the hosting machines which are again – TelNIC. All of the pages are the same look (with a couple of customizations), and the difference is the content based on the owner. Since this is all DNS record entry, updates are usually within a few moments.

Not much happened today. I chatted with a friend for a little while, and wrote an email. I also got an email, which I replied with a rather long one. I also provided some advise for a friend whom is looking into an Android phone. In addition, I watched a few shows on Hulu, and took care of a couple of things. I also am planning on changing my Skype ID to something easier to deal with. I already made those changes on my .TEL site, and Facebook.

As for plans for tomorrow, it would be a busy day. I will have to go to the post office, and hopefully would get the electric bill. I will also have to go and pay my phone bill, and get groceries as well as hygiene supplies. I would also expect to see Chris who would need to give something. While this may not sound as busy, keep in mind much of the effort will by using the bus. So, now time to get ready and prepare for this day which will start about 8AM.

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.

Today was not much of an exciting day. I stayed home, and did some chatting. I did a little research in trying to find something to write about. However, nothing can be realistically found. I also watched a couple of shows on Hulu, and Netflix. I also did some update on some of the .TEL domains I have. I also acquired a new Yahoo Messenger, and Hotmail ID which will be used exclusively with people I know well enough as it would seem I have a great deal of SPAM coming especially to my Yahoo ID.

As for plans for tomorrow, not much is planned. I will be staying home for the most part. I will have to make a couple of phone calls, and will hopefully find something to write on my blogs. Otherwise, not much planned for tomorrow. The next time I would go out will be Tuesday where I will have to go to the bank, pharmacy, and a doctor’s appointment.

You know you want me! I’m Free

I decided to do a couple of things. One of them was to start letting my domains expire. Not all of them will expire, but I am choosing quality over quantity. For the most part – fsp, and pilone domains will be kept as well as a few others. This of course will free up some money which should be for other things.

On another note, I finally figured out how to delve in giving people a free .TEL page. Those that are mutual followers with Twitter, or connected to me via one of the social networks can send me a message requesting a .TEL page. One should go to http://sample.telmy.tel for a sample of the kind of things that could go on one. I had a couple of people that were very appreciative of the page, and to me that’s what counts.

November 12

Today was a bit of a busy day. I left late and with the subways not running properly, it made things all the bit harder. Nonetheless, I paid a bill that should have came out of my bank account on the first, but never did. I made the necessary arrangements again, and hopefully, it will not be messed up again.

I did wanted to get cleats on my shoes replaced, but never made it there. I will go sometime next week, or just wait until next month. I did managed to go to the post office in Downtown, but there was nothing of value there.
