Less Is More When It Comes To Advertising Too!

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is a perfect example of how to do advertising the wrong way — and it’s pretty much the reason why most people hate online adverts: when it becomes too aggressive, too in your face, too intrusive and too damn creepy, then of course, any user would want that s**t off the pages they are […]

Tracking Users Online — Part 3

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve been lucky enough to get some time on my hands to put together a small release of the PixelServer project — and this is the post to accompany it. If you’re familiar with my posts from this series (see the previous entry here btw), you know that the code is hosted on Github under […]

Mobile Advertising Takes Us Back in the ’90s

Posted by & filed under , , .

I have to get this off my chest as it’s been bugging me for a while and just been reminded this morning of this issue so had to pick up the keyboard and blog (moan?) about it. I’m not the biggest mobile user — arguably! — however, like most people out there I find myself […]

First release of this project on Github is now out there. And as promised in my “pilot” post of this series, this post will walk you through what went into this release and why. The project itself as you recall is available on Github in this repository: https://github.com/liviutudor/PixelServer. The version for this release is pixelserver-1.0.0 […]

Tracking Users Online — Part 1

Posted by & filed under , .

I’ve written before in my blog about privacy online, cookies, user tracking and so on. The idea isn’t new at all and it is encountered on every decent website out there. (In fact, I use a few different solutions on my blog for various reasons: analyzing the number of unique visitors, page views, filtering comments, […]

New Blog Layout and New Intrepidity Theme Changes

Posted by & filed under , , .

So I’ve bitten the bullet finally, and changed my blog layout. For those of you repeated visitors I’m sure you noticed, for the rest of you who are new to my site, it’s worth saying that the old theme has been on my blog since its inception — which is a few good years back, […]

Advertising or Information?

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

This goes out to all you ad skeptics out there who bang on about how useless the internet advertising is and how it should be banned / destroyed / 101’d etc: it is sad that not often advertising is delivered as a complement to the content being viewed, and as such it doesn’t come across […]

Optimize the Download Speed of a Web Page: CSS

Posted by & filed under , .

Since I’m going through the old website and resurrecting pages which seem to be still sought after by visitors to my website (I can tell this based on search engines terms they use and what they search for then on my website), I’ve come across this old one, talking about optimizing the loading speed of […]

Monitoring Your Servers

Posted by & filed under .

One of the common tasks of setting up a production environment in your datacentre is setting up monitoring of your servers. This is quite often overlooked (“our application doesn’t have bugs and doesn’t crash!”) until hell breaks loose. At this point the damage is done and 9 times out of 10 is irreparable. (If you […]

Programming for bandwidth

Posted by & filed under .

Just like many others I do keep an eye on the technical articles and blogs that are out there on the net. I’d like to think that most of the ones I’m reading are quite authoritative on some areas of programming and present some useful insights into the world of IT. Even so, I am […]

What Do We Use the Internet for Nowadays?

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

If you ask Joe Bloggs what he uses the net for nowadays, a common term that pops up is “research”. People use the net to learn things — not a bad idea at all! After all, the information (in most cases) is out there, just waiting to be found. And with the competitiveness of the […]
