Bitcoin Transactions

Pay With Bitcoins in Three Easy Steps 1.) Download the Android App called Bitcoin Wallet by Bitcoin Wallet developers.  After you download it in the top right hand corner you will see a bar code.  Click that and then this will show your public key.  Looks like a big number with letters 1NZf534FC etc.  You will need that in order to transfer the bitcoins into your wallet or get payments from other people.  That is your wallet public key ID which is dynamic so you will have to send a different one per transaction. I suggest you back up the wallet on Dropbox.  Backup is under the menu safety.  Backups are all password protected and encrypted.   2.) Purchase some Bitcoins with a credit/debit card at Indacoin. There will charge a little fee basically a credit card fee but then Indecoin will send some discount coupons to make up…

Moving Servers Tips And Tricks

Your website hosting service may not be cutting it.  Is it time to move to a new host? Most services claim that they can provide 99.9% up time but is it really true. Even some of the best server hosting companies are not meeting their claims. Shared web hosting today is not the same as it was in the early 2000s.  Back then you were not hosting your website on a single server that have more than 1000 customers.  It was more likely to purchase a very cheap shared hosting plan with less than 100 websites on one server.  Shared hosting plans are a great start for developing a website but in the long run they will never be able to handle even basic traffic.  And to top that off most of them are battling down time and server abuse.  Now a days there is so much more scamming and…

Envato Market What You Need To Know To Get Your Money Back

So I wanted to briefly blog about my first experience with market.Envato.com products.  Envato is an online place to buy themes, plugins and code for website design. They are a giant in the market and are a subsidiary of ThemeForest.net. They began around 2006 and grew into a giant in just a few years. This blog is not to explain who or what they are.  There are many places you can get more information about this company based out of Australia.   Well lets get down to business. What I found is they do not support what they sell nor do they offer much in terms of credits for downloading broken themes or bad code. We are just one in thousands of blogs that have had the same experience with buying a product from their website and hoping it will save time. Its quite the contrary because you will end up…

Where Should Developers Sell Their Code

As a developer for private organizations I started to really understand the distribution network currently available for developers online.  It consists of several large players. They include Mojo Themes, Elegant Themes who does not use third party distribution the right way to do it, Authentic themes, Graph paper press, Press75, Aliewp and then there is a group who are all basically the same company.  This is the largest player of them all, the Envato Market which consists of themeforest, codecanyon, videohive, audiojungle, graphicriver, photodune, 3docean and activeden.  The Envato market is somehow related to each of its partners which is not always clear but business policies are inherited in some form or another. So you are developing new code for some application such as WordPress or JoomLa.  Your code works great and you want to provide a very reasonable price with excellent support for your customers.  I bet the first…

Five Reasons Why You Should Hire An Engineering Consultant

The job market today has changed dramatically.  Corporations are looking for better and cheaper ways to hire new employees.  But is full time employment the most efficient way?  Lets discuss a few reasons why hiring professional consulting firms can grow your business faster than hiring employees. Reason 1: First lets talk about how much value an engineering consulting firm can bring to your business.  A professional engineering consulting firm is going to have a great deal of engineering knowledge that you could not achieve from a single employee.  No matter what your hiring process is no testing or extensive interview process is going to determine if the new hire is going to perform to your standards.  Its a fact that many people lie on their resumes in order to land the job and most people are just not cut out for the position.  Reason 2: When you hire employees the…
