Reviews

There are 1000s of reviews out there by many other people. Some of them do reviews professionally, some do it for other business reasons, some just do it to complain, and some do it for vanity. There are many other motivations and many different types of reviews.

So why do I do reviews? There is one selfish reason I do reviews. If you you’re your going experience something that you later know you will have to write or explain you tend to pay more attention. You notice more, the subtle details and nuances. This makes my experience richer and more enjoyable.

Welcome to my newest site and the redesign of my web properties.

Welcome to my newest site and the redesign of my web properties.

I currently own 7 domains and they are spread out across different servers and hosting providers. Some sites are for fun and some sites are new business ideas that I am exploring. I have way to many topics I am trying to cover and fun, business and personal ideas are getting posted on the wrong web sites, or is limiting what I can do with the website. I have consolidated my hosting and servers down to two locations. I have a front end hosting provider for all my sites and a separate back end server to handle some complex functions. Below is an outline of my plans for my sites.

DanPereda.com – This is will be my personal site. It will be my personal Blog and Also a platform for my writing.

Shoreperformance.com – This site will be revamped to become the front face of my business again. Right now the front end is just my blog and the back end runs some major surveys and data recording.

Phonefuse.com – This site will be my test platform to work of some new Asterisk PBX goodies. It will also replace the back end for the Voipfordummies.com site that I currently own, but I am being forced to transfer it to Wiley Press.

Voipfordummies.com – This site is being eliminated and transferred to Wiley Press (the people that own the for dummies trademark)

Pereda.org – I hope to work more on this site and get it to become the family website that I had always meant for it to become.

TheMillionaireSociety.com – This is my Prosper group. I have not had time to really open this site or even start my group.

ReelSpicy.com – This was the name of my boat, but I no longer have the boat. I will come up with something to put here. till then I will just point it to one of my other sites.

The Venice Project™ Becomes Joost™ and is now invite only to beta test.

Kazaa and Skype founders join forces to create an online video service that was called The Venice Project™. All of a sudden today it is now called Joost.

You can get on a wait list for a beta test, but if you know someone that is already a beta tester they can invite you to join. kinda like google did with gmail when it started.

What Color Is Your Parachute? Intro…

What Color Is Your Parachute? Intro…

What Color is your Parachute? (2007) is a book by Richard Nelson Bolles; published by Ten Speed Press.

It has become the defacto book for job hunters and career changers. It is updated and republished every year. I half read the a copy in 2001ish. I was desperate for a Job at that time and ironically thought I didn’t have time to read it, I was to busy looking for a job in a terrible job market. I found a job eventually, but I had to struggle thru a few I didn’t really like before I found one that I did.

I have been at my current company for 3 years now. I really like my Company and my job. I get to travel all over the world setting up and managing call centers. I am always seeing cool places and doing unbelievable things, but the stress and working hours are getting to me. I look forward to settling down, buy a house, and starting a family. These things are not currently in line with my job. My job may change and allow me to have a home again, but that is not guarantee. I am now starting my back up plan.

I have picked up the latest copy of WCIYP? 2007. I have just started reading it and I plan to put thoughts and reviews of the book here online. There are many tasks that must be done in the book and i will also share them online.

I will also share what I have learned about the job market, working, traveling, and the world.

Intro to Radio Controlled Airplanes

Intro to Radio Controlled Airplanes

I have wanted a R/C plane since I was a little Kid. That passion never died, but the investment and time required for the hobby kept me from persussing it. I soon lost intrest and put it out of my mind as somthing that is “Not worth It”.

Since my job requires me to travel I am constantly seeing new places. I was walking thru a mall the other day and in this mall they had a hobby shop. It peaked my interest and I went in. After looking thru all the “cool things” I decide to buy this wooden rubberband powered model airplane. In side the box was a small catalog of other models and assories. One thing was an electric conversion kit to turn this little plane in to an Electric R/C Plane. I was hooked now and started my research….

I found soon found a much larger hobby shop near by. I was amazed at how easy it was to get a complete electric plane started and it was at a very reasonable price. I also played around with thier R/C flight simulator for quite a while. I eventually left the store with out a plane but a I had the bug get one agian.

After a while I started looking for more information online. By chance I found a website called http://www.hobby-estore.com/ This site offer some great planes with controllers at some really great prices.

After Much shopping around I decided to buy this Jaguar Airplane from http://www.hobby-estore.com/ .

Asterisk PBX

Asterisk PBX

Hello All,
I know I have not posted anything new on this site in a while. I Have been crazy busy at work. I have also taken on a new project.

I am developing an Asterisk PBX. The phone number for the PBX is 1-218-339-8572. Please note that this PBX is running on a VDS, and a Very small slow VDS. so it cant handle more than 2-3 callers at a time.
I hope to add my Asterisk experience to this blog..

Ok, I updated the new Phone number on the PBX and I have started a new site at Phonefuse.com that I hope to offer some cool free features.
