So, I just spent the better part of the evening learning all about Apache/PHP/Wordpress/etc caching and squeezing every ounce of performance out of my server to handle massive traffic loads. My website should be nice and fast now when the horde shows up ! Continue reading “Website be fast!”
A huge THANK YOU (again) to LifeHacker Editor-in-Chief, Alan Henry, for posting about the new Lite Version my toolkit. See the new LifeHacker article here. This new one is made for non-techies to be able to fix their computer automatically. Also thank you to Front Range Internet, Inc. for being willing to setup additional monitoring on my server and tell me when it was having problems.
Have computer problems but don’t want to call a technician just yet? Download and try it!
I have finally put together an easy to use version of my All in One – System Rescue Toolkit. This “Lite” version can be run by ANYONE, you don’t have to be a tech guru or dig through some crazy files to fix some common computer problems!
If you are a technician and want to direct friends and family to an automated tool developed by a tech professional without all the bloatware, feel free to share!
This is NOT one of those “Free PC Repair” scams or “Free Registry Cleaner” scams that claims you have thousands of problems then tries to rope you into paying $30 – $60 to “fix” them. While I do ask for donations to support the project, this is far from the scare tactics used by the junk software out there.
I have been reading the published reviews, comments, and forum posts since the release of my toolkit a few months back. There has been some talk and excitement from you all about getting your hands on this automated Lite version, and now it has finally arrived!
An educated, free thinking populus unchained by fear, sensationalism, conformance, extremist beliefs, and stubborn opinion would be ideal. But until then…
Our ballots came in the mail, hooray!
I am excited mostly to be done with this nightmare of an election. My Facebook filter is working overtime to keep the political shared garbage out of my stream. I haven’t seen too much thanks to Fluff Busting Purity facebook plugin: http://www.fbpurity.com/
I have it set to only show original content posted by people I know, no likes or shares show up. Which means no memes and attention grabbing stuff. I actually read the posts and see the original pictures that people put up when I am lurking on Facebook.
Some stuff sneaks by the filter, and I am so tired of hearing about the political circus. I am almost tempted to vote for that idiot if the world keeps sharing the junk! You know which one I am talking about, the idiot you hate the most that is running for President right now.
(Troll bait, I wouldn’t waste my vote!)
I have been receiving lots of great feedback from my All in One – System Rescue Toolkit from internet users around the world, and thought that I was replying back to everyone and thanking them for their kind words.
I have discovered that my emails were bouncing back and decided to look into it, I think that no one has been receiving my replies!
I just wanted to thank everyone out there for using and sharing this utility and your kind words for my efforts. Hopefully my website glitch is fixed and my replies will reach you going forward!
About 1 week ago, Alan Henry of LifeHacker was the first person to test and publish an article about my All in One – System Rescue Toolkit. Thanks again Alan!
Since then, I have lost count sometime during the week on the number of downloads around the 5,000 mark mid-week (3-5 TB of data transferred) since the toolkit is designed to spread itself through BitTorrent. The toolkit has gone worldwide with way too many countries to list, I can’t even keep track of the shares, new articles, and forum posts anymore!
It has always been a mission of mine to make the world a better place through my work in technology. Thank you all for your continuing support and helping me realize this mission!
Since this website boomed on Sunday, the customer support and tech support of our local datacenter in Northern Colorado has handled my requests for support like a champ. The upgrades should be mostly in place to handle the increased traffic for now and I can perform some maintenance later to keep it stable.
