MOZ declaring sites as spam.

DMOZ Title.

What the hell is a MOZ?

Moz is a service that no one asked for. A variant of the old Google “PageRank” engine ideologies where just like that system is bases your ‘domain authority’ off of an obscure pyramid scheme of “more important” domains to prove your worth. MOZ isn’t the first to try to ‘rank’ the internet. There was WOT (Website of Trust) which had it’s own issues with legalities. And of course there’s the Amazon Giant in the corner “Alexa” which quietly monitors everyone’s website traffic if you want them to or not.

Google’s uncommon downloads and where to find them.

Blog of S-Config Article Title Screen.

Slander from Google is fun kids!

Earlier this month we produced a blog article illustrating how we screwed up. It was simple, educational, and it really hits close to the homes of independent blogging and website building on how much goes through a single organization which is Google. More importantly, how many websites that piggy-back onto the giant and just happy accept their data as pure truth instead of questioning its overall legitimacy. From a scarier point of view the bots are doing exactly what they are programmed to do and in turn are becoming scape-goat for corporate greed.

To which if AI is going to take the fall for human corruption. Well! Guess that’s ANOTHER reason why robots should wipe us off of the face of the earth!

The point is we want to show you some classic Google incompetence and how everyone accepts this is as “just another day on the internet” when the more appropriate response should be outrage.

It appears we screwed up.

Blog of S-Config Article Title Screen.

Yes, it’s true. We can screw up. We’re pros at it!

In this chapter, we are swept away by tornadoes and dropped off somewhere in Jersey. It’s a serious fear for those who live in the great American mid-west. For those who aren’t following our social networks, we made the switch from Apache to NGinx. Why do you ask? Because after doing a lot of research combined with the fact that a lot of higher end programs we use have migrated to the  Nginx platform. It seemed reasonably powerful to give it a go. For the most part, the migration was a success! But like all things new you tend to get a little crazy with configuration and sometimes screw up!

To those who were wondering why things were silent for a bit. Well, there you go! Just table-flipping the website once again! Would you like to know more?

YouTube – FTC – Think of the Children – Censorship – Round 3!

YouTube Censorship Round 3 title.

Aww geez! Not another YouTube rant!

It’s a time that as a blogger we address the proverbial elephant in the room. The last few things YouTube has done I’ve remained quiet about. Mostly in respects that I’ve already said my piece about them and have suggested to people to try other outlets. From their de-monetization policy, a word that if you uttered 10 years ago people would scratch their head and ask you “What the hell are you talking about?” To “Adpocalypse” and “AI mass deletion” to now with this whole “COPPA/FTA” ordeal. I feel it’s time to address these issues in an environment to which YouTube nor Google cannot control.

This very blog. I should throw a small disclaimer that these are the opinions of S-Config.com. In such, you should do your own investigative research to form your own opinions on the subject matter. Don’t be a lemming!

So you want to start a blog?

Start A Blog Title.

Start a blog? In this day and age? What the hell man?!?

Perhaps one of the three readers might be interested in our advice on how to start a blog. To learn from the mistakes/failures we’ve made so that you can be an even better blogger. Perhaps even some of the success that we’ve had too. It’s been now five and a half years since we’ve opened this site and to this date, we couldn’t be happier with the majority of the decisions made here. So, instead of giving little bits of information like “download WordPress” this article is to approach all aspects of what it takes to be at least a proficient blogger. We can’t say professional bloggers as that would involve making money. But proficient is the next best thing in our opinions. Let’s begin!

Some http2 headaches.

Collapsing internet universe title.

Sitting on the bleeding edge with HTTP2 protocols. HTTP2 has been enabled shortly after we purchased an SSL connection. Since we were already running encryption on our blog then why not take advantage of another method that will speed up the site? This blog will continue to be enabled until a better transport protocol comes … Read more

Moving to 7-zip.

7-Zip Title.

7-Zip conversion is now in effect.

We have decided to proceed with the move converting any archived files into the 7-zip or .7z extension. The reason for this move is to help with getting users the files they need faster. This blog is ready to try new technologies to make communication faster. Thus, 7-zip will be a welcome addition. As an added side-effect transitioning to 7-zip will help with the backups and overall optimization.
