alternate headline: man does job
I need to remake my business web site.(law, if it matters) So I have to buy a new domain and then rebuild the site.
I don't really know a great company to use for this. I pretty much only know GoDaddy, but I have been told that they aren't the best.
Can any of you computer whizzes tell me what company to go to to buy a domain name, and then to build a modest business web site?
The help is appreciated . . .
Wikipedia has already shut down for the next 24 hours in protest of the internet censorship bills that will be voted on next week. Tons of other sites are shutting down for a large portion of the day, and plenty more, Google included, are doing something in protest.
Plenty more information here.
If passed, these bills will likely have a trickle down effect (beyond the intention to stop internet piracy) to wonderful blogs like these who would be responsible for users posting infringing copyrighted content (game highlights, audio commentary, logo usage). If others have more/knowledgable information to add, please do. I just don't see what good can come from censoring the internet.
EDIT: Not my intention to get political (I know it's a no no). Just tyring to be informative if you see crazy things on the internet today and don't know why. Mods feel free to delete if necessary.
You can file this one in the believe-it-when-I-see-it category, but here is an article on the NCAA's work towards a new penalty structure:
Highlights of what's being discussed:
-- Change from 2 levels of violations (major, minor) to 4 (egregious, serious, secondary, minor)
-- Financial penalties of up to 2.5% of the offending sport's budget at the school
-- Scholarship reductions of 37.5 to 50%
Must re-emphasize the believe-it-when-I-see-it aspect of this, but the idea that the NCAA is even talking about that sort of thing is...whew. Article suggests that U-M might have lost up to four schollies a year for a couple years for the practice-time violations - and if that sounds like overkill, maybe not compared to the 32 to 42 schollies that USC would have lost, plus five or six in basketball.
Makes you wonder, if they pass this, will existing investigations be grandfathered into the old rules, or will they bring the new, much larger hammer on, say, Miami?
Colts fire Caldwell after two seasons. Link below. Wonder what this does for Jim Tressel and his duties as replay assistant?
Judging by the thread a week ago from someone looking fill a couple of spots for an NCAA 12 dynasty, there's still plenty of interest in a B1G online dynasty, and I'm starting one up right now. Here are the specs (borrowed some from the other thread, seemed like good rules):
1) All-American skill level and recruiting
2) 7-minute quarters
3) Sim-style play (like normal football, no going for ridiculous 4th downs or running up score)
Post your PS3 gamer tag, which team you want (Big Ten only, and FIRST COME FIRST SERVED) here and I'll send an invite. Sorry, Michigan's out, I'm taking the reins...
I was going to create an NFL Open Thread, but I didn't want to overlap the pseudo-open thread the Arrington thread had become, and I wasn't going to be in for all of it anyway. But now we have the most hyped, if not the best game of the weekend (that one might be going on right now). Brady vs. Tebow. Will Tebow fair better against this Michigan QB? We shall see. Should be an interesting one. Will be hard to top how the 49ers and Saints are going right now.
