>As for the Nope Boat, I assume that is a jet outboard  ...or the captain bent a LOT of props learning the channel.

I was going to say, I want to see the prop.

Funny, quick read. Dead on, on the amazon brands.

I remember when I first got a cable modem and watching ports and freaking out about the constant probes. It's been the norm daily for a long time as this was a couple decades ago.

Very cool. I kinda wonder though, would we maybe be better off without the people who decided to wear their helmet on their elbow?

Wow, the hovercraft racing looks like a blast.

Living in your own post apocalyptic neighborhood where your house is there and you still have services and all you need? Hmmm, sign me up? hhh For a week at least.

Hardware & Technology / MacOS from a windows fanboy
« on: August 22, 2023, 12:43:11 AM »
Well, ex fanboy. I'm still mad about what they did to win7 with the mobile shoehorn and cannot believe they never cleaned it up.

So I decided recently I want to try a mac to see what the fuss is all about, since a 13" macbook air recently dropped to 750 on sale.

Welp, in short, I'm sold. I love the interface and the hardware. I've always lived with little Windows quirks due to different hardware configs, but now that software side is a mess too, there is no comparison.

I'm a long ways from replacing my daily driver workstations, but I can see it happening at some point. For now, the power and versatility over a chromebook is a boon and I love the look and feel of the whole kit. It blows away similarly priced windows offerings. I should have done this sooner.

"AI won't replace people---but people who use AI will replace people who don't"

Finally some language that matches what this has been feeling like.

MS def seem to have lost the plot. Win7 was the peak.

I'd be with you if I weren't daily driving business apps and running a shop full of machines.

FF on mobile with full desktop functionality is awesome, what else could we ask for.

It blows my mind that FF doesn't have more market share.

Semi-related, if you notice cooler temps today, there are some drastic temp changes in hell going on right now. I just bought a mac.

Traffic / Re: The SEO scam: 62,000 dollars later

Wow, what a nightmare client.

4k/mo for a national campaign for keys like :
front end development
brochure website development
marketing website development

"We decided to seek an agency's help to rank for "business" terms - you heard that right - specifically those related to web application creation, marketing websites, design, and similar terms."

Why the hell do these idiots want to sell "marketing websites" and "marketing website development" when they can't even grasp SEO basics? This agency should have run.

This client is dumb as a bag of rocks if they thought they would get solid leads on this kind of traffic for 4k/mo. How many actual, real "marketing website" companies are out there actually doing their own seo ya think guys? IDIOTS

"Digital PR, it turns out, is a fancy term for buying backlinks, a practice not allowed by Google."
Yeah, go ahead and follow all of the rules for things "allowed" and published by G and see how far you rank. IDIOTS

I see dumb mistakes and ideas on this project all around. Even if it were double or triple the money, thank God they didn't hire us.

We almost never sell SEO alone any more. Something like this should start with PPC to get a list of the lowest hanging fruit keywords that drive the most leads. Then build SEO around that list and grow from there. A lot of agencies don't seem to optimize for leads, and just clicks.

These days, we are taking it one step further and connecting the client's CRM on the backend to ppc. This gives us not only closed lead data, but revenue per job, so we can optimize for overall ROI instead of just leads. Then SEO *that*. When I can't talk a client into this is when I start envisioning emails from them with quotes around terms they don't fully understand like I see annoyingly littered throughout this article. Have to say it again, IDIOTS.

Web Development / Re: No CSS Club

We still prefer to build in html, which is rare. I need to show you guys some recent builds. We've been upping our game.

I'll never understand all the interest in watching others play video games, or unboxing vids. I can't wait to see what the next gen does that'll be weird to them.

I was recently surprised to learn the longest light of any aircraft was 64 days, 22 hours. 2 guys in a cessna 172!
