Traffic Secrets v1, #1, Appendix C


This guy began his life as a developer of sorts; in all his documentaion he refers to himself as an Entrepreneur. The method I sense he is the former is through his personal history. Only a nerd would put himself through that much shit to become profitable.

Marketing online since 1990, internet as we know it since 1994, business for 12 years since 2004 (1992). Those are his steps in two year intervals. Track everything to know what is profitable and what is not. Understand that just because your gross-earnings go up, one project may have gone down or decreased conversion; track that!

The TabletPC is under hyped; Bill should know

This screen is awesome. Not only can I deliver hand-written correspondence to people, the laquer coating protects it from finger smudges and pen drops that are an occupational hazard of the trade; customer service and technical support professionals alike need these tablets.
Take it from Billy G, he should know. This is from his parting words on Microsoft and the future of I.T. It is a credible source, unlike the 11 rules of life which are from educator Charles Sykes, not the Entrepreneur as the patroniser referring it suggests.

Pie in the Sky, printer Fly

So we have this blimp cruising at high altitude. The atmosphere is too thin in our target location where the ozone resides in its protection capability. The height raised by the blimp does, however, get us close enough in that the difference is economical to counteract.
So what happens? we have our laser printing machinery at this altitude. It is in a sealed room, climate controlled, and gasses collated, phun intended. The ozone gasses generated by this equipment are destined to be deposited into the upper stratosphere where they are useful for protecting us against solar radiation poisoning.
A pseudo friend of mine asks; so what about the carbon based toner that is toxic to organic life, what is done about that? Fair question. We modified our equipment slightly to address this. Toner cartridges are replenished with icing sugar, the baking kind. Print jobs are rendered onto black paper whilst the icing sugar is now spreading the white areas of the document onto the page. This does indeed increase maintainence cycles of the printer but at this altitude, you've got to take care of your equipment; cab drivers and heavy vehicle operators all follow the same principal of early consumables replacement to protect their investments.
So what then about the quality? sure, icing sugar on black paper comes out a dull grey, sometimes even brown if the batch is bad, but this is still considered a step up from the dark ages where toner would cake and the page would look just as shitty as it would on an emptying cartridge.
Think the quality is more important than the environment? use a commercial printing press for all the long term apps, and they can offer you incentives to switch to vegetable dies. Short term jobs are just that, too short a duration of existence to be bitching about the quality where other areas of the job need that kind of attention. Grow up and get the real jobs people.

Just spam me the lesson plan

Going through an inbox I barely use anymore, there is a mountain of gunk here. Most of it never goes to paper. I.T. is indeed an environmentally friendly business.

I returned to this box as I have a need to remove it, adjusting online services accordingly. There is a sizeable portion of spam in this mailbox that are in languages other than English. How many of you have attempted to use it to study the grammar of another language? It is tempting, considering that the marketing trash is not a difficult context to decypher.

Still, I might just be better cruising the other language portals on the WikiMedia network. Best case scenario is I learn language and another field like math simultaneously.

Traffic Secrets 2.0

Some time ago, I've previewed some interesting videos on http://www.retiredat32.com/. Business has always been the natural incubator of my chosen profession in the electronics/software trade so I have always been fascinated by those companies that could run their operations properly. Integritas group is no exception. They are tied to one company but they are quite flexible in the way they do business. A new thread of my journey was revealed this day.

Multi-Level-Marketing is the name of the game, and lets face it, society is a game we all play whether we want to or not. As long as it is demanding my time, I may as well be allocating it efficiently as possible.

Yesterday, my order for Traffic Secrets 2.0 was submitted. There is more to this than the business opportunities and this is reflected in the custom training trails of a vast library of software, to my relief.

It was just one week ago my employer asked me about my career choices. Office administration type work is right up my alley, just south of the I.T. persuits. This service offering could not have come at a better time.
