VGA cables so people can hook up a computer or laptop to their shiny new LCD or Plasma TV, and wireless routers so they can share their internet connection to new computers and/or game systems. Unfortunately it’s not always a […]

Online Radio

Posted on April 8, 2009 - Filed Under Contests, Entertainment, Internet, Music, review | Leave a Comment

Living in a town with 1 radio station can make it difficult to hear new music, especially since hard rock/heavy metal is what I normally listen to.

We’ve been with Host Gator for a month now and so far all is going well. I’ve only noticed downtime once and it only lasted for a couple of minutes. I’m not sure what the problem was, but if it only happens once a month for a such a short time then I’ll […]
