742 The remote server does not support encryption

Ok someone ask me why he's getting error when connecting to their enterprise Virtual Private Network (VPN) regarding support encryption.
Microsoft improves handling user security and they simply want you to use maximum strength encryption. Here's how to update your workstation encryption settings. Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl in the Open box, and then click OK.Right-click the VPN connection, and then click Properties.Click the Security tab, click Advanced (custom settings), and click Settings.In the Data encryption box, click Maximum strength encryption (disconnect if server declines), and then click OK two times.Source: Support. Microsoft.com
Now try again, you should be able to connect to your enterprise Virtual Private Network. If not, please post your comments here and I will check it again.

The first domain name registered Symbolics.com sold to XF Investment.

I published an article regarding the first 100 registered domain names last January of 2008. I learned today that Symbolics.com was sold to XF.com Investment for an undisclose amount.

"Symbolics.com, the first domain name ever registered, has changed hands for the first time since its original registration on March 15, 1985. Missouri-based XF.com Investments purchased the historic Internet address from the Symbolics company for an undisclosed price. Symbolics sold the domain even though the company is still in operation nearly 25 years after they made history by registering the name. Since that initial domain registration a quarter of a century ago 180 million domains names have been registered!" (2009, DNJournal.com)

Advertising is a key for your business?

I watched this video by Dr. Bob Parsons asking people about his GoDaddy.com commercial, the result is 17/30 through random people.

One comment from California is "All the chicks with big boobs" and Dr. Bob Parsons says we need to advertise more. Some feedback because of Danica Patrick as being the endorser. My personal opinion, GoDaddy created their brand but marketing to the wrong crowd. Maybe not.


I've seen GoDaddy.com commercials through the Internet and in TV. I know their business, products and services but the results of 17 YES they know GoDaddy and 13 NO (out of 30 people) results from millions of advertising budget is a dissappointing results. Maybe not, if the goal is to create deep branding of GoDaddy.com.
As entrepreneur, I've seen that we still have enough market to introduce our respective products and services to local businesses. Still plenty of opportunity.
Go out there and make more money.

Online Backup service a life saver.

I am currently using the personal version that provides free 2GB of data. This is more than enough to cover my project data that I constantly making updates. I don't have to worry about backup because Mozy do it for me automatically.

Something to think about. Taxes.

Something to think about.

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for
all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our
taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that's what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with
the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. "Since you
are all such good customers," he said, "I'm going to reduce the cost of
your daily beer by $20."Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes
so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for
free. But what about the other six men - the paying customers? How could
they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get h…

5 minutes Practical Management Course

Lesson 1:

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.

They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.'
'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk. 'I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.'
Puff! She's gone.

'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.'

Puff! He's gone.

'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after
lunch.'


Moral of the story:

3D TV in 2010

After watching G-Force and Ice Age in 3D with my kids so what is next? Well actually a company in UK already started bringing 3D programming into the home as well. This is a technology that I'm dreaming 10 years ago and now I am close to reality.

"Not just content with making a splash on the big screen, content providers are also set on bringing 3-D programming into the home as well. Sky TV plans to launch a dedicated 3-D channel in the UK next year.
The station will offer a smattering of sports, movies, and entertainment-related content, all piped through to the living room via a set-top box. This seems to lineup with Panasonic's plans to have 3-D movies in the home by 2010 as well." (2009, PopSci.com)

Google Adsense for Domains making changes?

I'm not sure if Google Adsense for Domains started making changes to your parked domain names, by providing different looks. For example, I've checked one of my domainMotels.com.cn and refresh 3 times (try again if you don't see the new pages).
Please see the 3 different captured images.




Let me know if you see these changes for your parked domain names. If you do, please post your domain name so I can check it as well. I'm curious if this is specific to a certain keywords, category or something else.
