Coronavirus hits home!!!

thread
Cherry Blossom at Aldarra Gol... Cherry Blossom at Aldarra Golf Club
The first death was reported at Evergreen Health in Kirkland, Washington. It was the hospital that I got my colonoscopy in December last year. Hearing what is going on ice China, Iran, Korea, Italy and Japan made me concerned but hearing something this close to our hime makes it really scarcely.

However, although the casualty will increase, it is stall a very rare case. We should not panic.

BTW, I golf today ... I shot 95 (49/46). It is not good but I walked over 15,000 steps. Not too bad.

We are starting to overhaul MegaMail (secure Large File Transfer System) now.

Back in September 2004, we have published the system enabling people to send large file using Internet and our datacenter. It was a hit and we kept it un until 2013. Since then, we have not done mony update due to the fact there are other services like DropBox.

However recently, we are asked many times by our customers to update our MegaMail service to current. So, we have decided to overhaul MegaMail system. Our target update and release date is May 1, 2020.

If you are interested, current version is still available at https://sendmegamail.com

Be Loud?

In many ways we are taught and trained to be quiet. We do not like people who talk a lot and who are loud. I remember seeing the commercial - “When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen.” That is because he was known to speak the truth and to not speak very often.

However, talking loud and a lot has become the norm lately. From the President to corporate CEOs, people must speak out or they are not remembered. I do not care too much about that, but unfortunately in order to be heard, you have to speak out loud and often. I guess there is no shame in that any more.

I suppose I am trying my best to speak louder using this newsletter, but I hope it isn’t too much. You need to speak clear, loud and often ... but you need to make sure you make sense. I still hate people talking too much, it is such a turn off. I hope I am not doing that.

POST IN HEAVEN



This website has no purpose ... or does it? When I lost my dog, Pompom, two years ago, I created a website to send message to him in Heaven. I made it as a pet project to learn PHP 7. I didn’t really need to learn PHP but I had a purpose. That purpose was to build that website.

I wanted to create a website that was designed for me to write anything I wanted and to post it nowhere. I can write anything without worrying about anyone seeing it except myself and Pompom in heaven. The source code has no functionality to save any messages you write. In addition, I purchased an SSL certificate to make sure your communication is also protected.

I did not make this site to make money. I just wanted to feel that Pompom is still with me. You are free to use this site and write anything you want. I assure you that I have no idea what you have written.

Just in case you would like to know, there is a site post counter that goes up by one when something is written. Currently there are more than 12,500 posts and that is not all me.

POST IN HEAVEN 天国のメッセージボード

世の中には何の意味もないサイトが存在します。これはわたしが作ったそんなサイトのお話です。
2年前にわたしは愛犬のポンポンくんを天国に送り出しました。ペットをお持ちの方ならそれがどれだけ辛いかお分かりいただけると思います。そこでわたしは天国にいるポンポンくんにメッセージを送るサイトを作りました。

このサイトでは、誰でも自由に好きなことを書いて送信することができます。でもそれらの言葉はどこにも保存されないのです。そう、書いた文字は送信した時点で天国に送り出され痕跡はまったく残らないのです。そしてサイト自体も SSL を購入して暗号化通信をしています。
まったく意味のないサイト・・・でもここにメッセージを書くとなぜか少しだけホッとします。

皆さんもぜひこのサイトを使ってみてください。たまには収益を考えていないサイトのお話をしてもいいかと思いました。ちなみにこのサイト、2年前の開設から12,500回以上使われています。それが全部わたしでないことは事実です。

Can you use the Internet to back up data?

Internet service is getting faster and cheaper ... but is it now fast and affordable enough to be used as your primary backup system? Backing up files to a USB external drive is different. By using USB 2.0, you can transfer files up to 480 Mbps - I will explain.

Transfer speed is measured in Mbps (Megabits per second). Using a 1 Mbps connection, you can send 125 kilobytes every second. This is not fast enough to receive streaming video in standard resolution. To receive HD (1080p) video streaming, you should have a 20 Mbps connection.

One 2 hour / 1 GB movie uploaded using a 5 Mbps broadband connection can take about 20 minutes or 1.5 hours with 1 Mbps speed. Given that a terabyte has 1,048,576 megabytes, if you could achieve the theoretical 60 Mbps transfer, you could do it in slightly over 4 hours and 45 minutes.

I am designing a system that allows people to back up a huge amount of data for safe storage. The key to this is speed and ease-of-use. The first step is to create a testing method for the file transfer rate. It is a challenging but interesting problem to solve.

New Hosting Service

thread
New Hosting Service

YOURHOST NEO
Once upon a time there was a big gap between generations when it came to understanding digital technologies. It was called the “Digital Divide”. Since then, it appears that the division has shrunk. The fact is, the younger generation has grown older with more tech knowledge and with technologies becoming easier to use. So the gap seems to be smaller, but the fact is, you do not need to know as much about the tech anymore.

It is like when cars moved from manual transmission to automatic. It appeared that people were driving better, but in reality cars just became a whole lot easier to drive. Now cars are moving toward self driving... does that mean people are driving better? No, it just means that people are not in charge anymore. Instead of people using technology, people will become passengers.

When I design software and services, I want to make sure we can do as much as we can to free up your time but I always remember who is ultimately in charge. We try to make sure you make no mistakes but that you are free to try out anything. At the same time, when you become stuck, our customer support, and entire company for that matter, is behind you to help you get unstuck from any situation.

PSPinc is just releasing a new Web and Email Hosting Platform called YourHost Neo. This is like a 5 speed manual muscle car - how you drive it is up to you. It is pure muscle and no fat, I wish I could say that about myself.

Play in the Steering System

When you sit in your car and wiggle the steering wheel, there are a few degrees of movement that do not affect the direction of the wheels. This is called "Play". Without this, your car will react to every movement and send too much information from your wheel to your steering wheel. Thus, the car will be very difficult or sensitive to drive.

I believe the same thing applies to your business. You can try to control everything, which will make your management style very strict and sensitive. People need some amount of "Play" in their work. Though, as with your car, too much and things will easily become uncontrollable. There is a need for some "Play" but not too much.

As a Manager, you need to know how much "Play" you wish to have as it pertains to your management style. Never allow too much "Play" in your steering, it's all about having the right amount. Do you agree?

    Why Do Business Owners Work Such Long Hours?

    It is not uncommon for business owners to work long hours. In my case, I easily work 12 hours a day and 7 days a week. I work a little less on the weekend but I am usually at my office 7 days a week.

    Why?

    That is because as a business owner I feel I need to be at work all of the time. Do I need to be at work that often … maybe not. Though I want to make sure everything is fine all of the time and I feel like I need to keep my eyes on it. So I feel relaxed at work knowing that I can see and feel everything.

    Some people feel relaxed taking vacation and not thinking about work. For many business owners, at work is where one feels relaxed. So, the best way to make a business owner relax is to communicate better about what is going on in the office. At least that will make me feel better.
