DMOZ left and thanked us all for the fish!

The Directory Mozilla Open Source project ( DMOZ ) is now closed!

Standing tall for more then 19 years now the DMOZ has closed its doors to the internet. Source is WHOIS from Janurary 2nd of 1999; To today where the announcement was made on their site March 17th, 2016. Also, there was two years where DMOZ/ODP was known as “Gnuhoo” which totals its 19 year existence. This news was discovered to us thanks to our broken links detection tool . WordPress users such as ourselves have this plugin installed. This hit us personally hard because of what the Open Directory Project stood for. Also the simple fact that after many of years that this very site was listed in the /People/Furry/Personal Pages catagory of their site.

Google AMP does not understand what AMP means.

The greatest enemy of AMP is the company that designed it.

The fast universe of WordPress bloggers installed the AMP plugin as another means of making it easier for people to find their content online. But is AMP itself really serving its purpose? Or is it self-serving as a way of extracting content from individual bloggers? Perhaps there’s something more nefarious behind this simple protocol. Read on if you want to know more.

You think this site is phishing or hacking you?

I think your website is a phishing site!

We have received a few E-Mails lately accusing us of being a phishing site and frankly we’re totally confused. Perhaps people are not sure what a phishing site is? Perhaps they’re just trolling hard? Regardless, lets go with the first scenario and break it down for the people out there. I also have this FAQ thing which people can read for other basic questions as well.

SSL for bloggers

SSL for the extra paranoid blogger!

SSL is an acronym of (Secure Socket Layer) and is commonly used on a website whenever confidential information is passed between the client and the server under the HTTPS protocol. Commonly, SSL is used for E-Commerce because you know, credit card data security is kind of important!

But if it’s for commerce why really have it on a WordPress site that sells nothing? What the hell S? What are you doing wasting perfectly good money on a protocol that has no benefit to you what so ever!?!?!

Oh, but it does! And for those with the cash to do it it benefits just about any blogger! Read on if you want to know more.

Theme tableflip!

We have changed the theme to this site. Prey we do not change it again.

Today we have decided to completely table-flip the WordPress theme on our site. The Angular theme by kriesi was good for its time but if you could tell from the blog posts about all of the CSS and JS I was writing I was finding myself re-writing major parts of the theme just to get it to conform to today’s standards of web. The straw the finally broke my back as it were involved wanting a slightly larger resolution and maybe even changing and/or transparent backgrounds only to have it glitch out or crash the moment i begin writing the CSS.

Anyhow, for those interested keep reading. For those who don’t care. Enjoy a faster site with less JavaScript action then before!

Website – Online year round.

Your website is important boys and girls.

It’s time to sit down and have a conversation about websites. Although hardly qualified to talk about such matters there seems to be a running problem that I have seen when surfing the net over and over again. Which simply put, no one really puts forth the time/effort into their website. We are guilty of this as well at s-config.com so to those who think I’m being hypocritical:

Yeah, you’re totally right.

Web Isolation – State of the config – fonts and more

Web Isolation, fonts, and the overall state of config that is “S”.

It’s been a while since I did an update on my website and I want to talk about Web Isolation.. Work and being a responsible human being is a brutal thing. There isn’t a whole lot of personal blogging that goes on here because I don’t think there’s anything all that interesting to say about “S-Config” as a person. Instead, I just want to focus on the data instead. And I think everyone agrees it’s a way better move. I suppose lets talk about the first aspect of what I have been doing with this Blog which is:

Web Services blog entry – AnubianHost

The progression from websites of old to AnubianHost my current site.

I thought I made a blog entry about AnubianHost when I first started my blog. But Anubian Host is the web provider that I use which hosts all of the data that you see before you and keeps it nice and fast to boot. It’s been a few years and perhaps it’s time I should tell you a little story behind why I moved to these guys.
