Way back in late 1998 (think "before Google"), I started devdaily.com in the hope that it would one day grow into a website where authors would offer tips and tutorials for Java, Perl, C, C++, Linux, and any other open source programming language and technology that came along. Then in 1999 I started a company named Mission Data, and I put the dream of devdaily aside.
Since I changed devdaily.com to alvinalexander.com, I've received several emails from people saying they're interested in buying the devdaily.com domain name. All I can say is that if you're interested in buying it, using the contact form here to contact me and make me a solid offer. I'm pretty sure that if the offer is $1M (one million dollars, US currency) or more, you'll get my attention. Otherwise I'll probably put it up for auction next year, and at that time you'll be bidding against a lot of other people.
Just a quick note that the devdaily.com monthly newsletter is now in the mail, email that is. If you're not on the devdaily.com mailing list, here's a link to our May, 2011 monthly newsletter.
If you're not signed up for our newsletter, too bad, you're missing out on a chance to win a free copy of jQuery in Action, and other prizes we're giving away this year.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but the old devdaily.com "directory", formerly available as URLs like these:
has been removed. With terrific search engines like Google, there wasn't much need for the directory any more.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience. If I can help you find what you're looking for, just send me an email.
RockMelt browser review - I'll probably be off this "social web browser" kick soon, but at the moment, it's a very intriguing playing field. As I wrote in my earlier Mac social web browsers review, even in a beta status, I think the new RockMelt browser is the current king of social web browsers.
RockMelt browser review - The short story
If you're interested in going down the social web browser road, here's what's good about RockMelt:
devdaily.com alvinalexander.com, was created by Alvin J. Alexander way back in 1998. The original plan was to open it up to all sorts of writers, create forums, and all sorts of other things, but alas, other things like economics kicked in.
Too funny, I just realized I own the devdaily.net domain, so I just posted a goofy website created with iWeb out there, just so there would be something there besides a blank page.
Here's a link to the main devdaily.net web page, and here's a link to the devdaily.net blog, which may or may not contain random thoughts from moi from time to time. Oh, and sorry about those ad banners at the top, that's what you get with "free hosting", lol.
One of my 2009/2010 New Year's resolutions was to do what I just did: Turn off the pop-under ads on this website.
Welcome to the new devdaily website. If you've been here before, you can see that things have changed quite a bit recently -- and hopefully for the better. Yes, the site features a new design, but beyond that, we've returned to our "open" and "social" roots, with a lot of changes under the hood around here. (More on this in another post.)
