  • The Coolest Domain Name | Jay L.ee
    shorter than Youtu be So how come he never registered Youde my as well Maybe he didn t think it was as important as the others I don t know But he certainly did a fantastic job in securing his domain names So for those reading this post who were not as fortunate enough to be able to secure their dream domain names all is not lost Creativity is the key here Use your imagination as it took me a while to come up with Jay L ee Jayl ee vs Jayjiehoonlee com The difference is similar to sushi vs bullshit don t you think I hope that what I ve learned revealed so far will inspire others to secure their domain names before someone else does People typically realize just how valuable their domain names are when they actually lose it Don t end up like Gary E Myers All it took was for someone like myself to patiently wait 77 days or so which is typically how long domain names take to fully expire after he forgot to renew the domain name for it to expire on May 15 2010 That day I paid 1 1 just 4 99 to take it away from him And I won t forget to renew Musicgem com because I already know just how valuable this domain name is without ever losing it To summarize what I ve said so far say you currently own http mycompany com http getmycompany com or whatever Just make sure to Google ny domain to see if an alternative like http mycompa ny can be registered at least as a backup name Remember Mr Dotcom s clout is slowly fading Just look at the growing popularity of the co domain names that people are registering as alternatives Claudio del Conde s Pick3 is a good example And don t forget there s also cm domain names that can be perfect for URL shorteners with all vowels taken out of the company name or for using the first letters of the words in your company name For example MusicGem s URL shortener is simply MG yes I proudly own a two letter domain name So are you ready to register your coolest domain name Not so fast There are actually some caveats to consider especially when registering an unusual international domain name 1 Check Wikipedia and do a basic search on the domain itself Pay special attention to the current status of the domain to see whether it is active discontinued etc Here are some examples an is currently being phased out cs has already been discontinued and split into cz sk uy at the moment only allows you to register at third level com uy etc meaning there s a good chance that you will be able to register at second level uy sometime in the future 2 Double check the registration requirements restrictions with the official website of that domain and or Wikipedia as well

  • 24 Hour Fitness: Upgrade From Active & Sport To Super Sport For FREE! | Jay L.ee
    their 20th anniversary although back in 1994 it might ve been even cheaper at 10 for their 10th anniversary celebration I have the next best plan at 49 which lots of other people also pay The rest pay 99 or hopefully very few 199 So now with the pricing system of 24 Hour Fitness out of the way let s talk about how to maximize your savings if you re thinking about joining one of their clubs anytime soon I want to let you in on some secrets that will help you upgrade your membership from Active Sport to Super Sport ABSOLUTELY FOR FREE Here s how it works Find out what clubs in your local area will be upgrading in the future I found out through the local news For example currently there are three locations in San Diego that will be upgrading from Active or Sport to Super Sport within the next couple of years 1 Balboa Summer of 2012 Sport to Super Sport 2 UTC End of 2012 Active to Super Sport 3 Carlsbad Oceanside Summer of 2013 Active to Super Sport So here are the secrets to getting your Super Sport membership for the price of Active or Sport 1 Join any of the clubs I mentioned above now and you ll automatically be grandfathered into their new system when their upgrades are done Don t worry about the UTC Carlsbad locations being Active right now You re still guaranteed to be grandfathered straight into their new Super Sport clubs I called both locations to confirm this information 2 If you originally started your membership at any of the three locations mentioned above you ll also be grandfathered into their new system when their upgrades are done guaranteed 3 If you originally started your membership at any of the locations other than the three mentioned above your mileage may vary on this one For example I started my membership back in summer of 2002 in the Miramar location but have been going to the Balboa location for the past few years So I asked one of their employees what would happen to my membership and he said that how the system works is they look at what locations I ve been going to during the past year and as long as I ve been coming to the current location at least 50 of the time that I ll be grandfathered into their new system when their upgrades are done Another employee said the exact same thing when I brought up the same question again a few days later while asking more detailed questions to get answers in preparation for this blog post She said I shouldn t worry about anything and that I was all set Lucky me D However I asked the same question at the UTC location and the lady I spoke to said that she never heard of what I was told at the Balboa club before and that even if I started

  • Drupal PinBoard Theme Upgrade Manual | Jay L.ee
    hypothetical example Let s say you bought PinBoard v2 1 6 which was released on April 18 Now let s say you made the following changes 1 Changed the footer got rid of unfollowers immediately v2 1 6 2 Changed You Follow to I follow a month later v2 1 7 First upgrade 3 Added some custom code to change the location of the counter for each pin page another month later v2 1 8 Second upgrade 4 No custom changes for the current version v2 1 9 Third upgrade The current version as of this writing is v2 1 9 released on July 2 meaning you need to have somehow upgraded three times without messing up Here s the system that I came up with that enables me to upgrade Collectiboard within minutes No more headaches no more worrying about overriding my own custom code just pure excitement that ThemeSnap my replacement CTO chief technology officer took care of a bunch of bugs and came up with new features 1 Create a separate directory in the downloadable example it s called Changes for all changes made 2 Create a separate text file with changes notes in the example every file has a text file with the same name 3 Create a separate text file with files in the example it s called Last Edited Files txt So using the example I ll go over these in detail to give you an idea of how everything works 1a The footer is initially changed within page tpl php in v2 1 6 And then since ThemeSnap made changes in the file in v2 1 7 it s in the changed folder for that directory too with the same exact notes to ensure that custom changes are included before it s overwritten 1b To get rid of unfollowers initial changes were made to node pin tpl php pinboard helper module user profile tpl php in v2 1 6 And then ThemeSnap made changes to node pin tpl php in v2 1 8 v2 1 9 pinboard helper module in v2 1 7 v2 1 8 v2 1 9 and user profile tpl php in v2 1 9 so the same notes were all carried over to their respective directories in those versions One thing to note here is how I kept track of the difference in line numbers due to code additions by ThemeSnap in later versions For example some code in line 92 had to be deleted within node pin tpl php in v2 1 6 v2 1 8 to get rid of unfollowers in the pin pages but in v2 1 9 it s in line 105 Similarly some code in line 27 had to be deleted within user profile tpl php in v2 1 6 to get rid of unfollowers in the user profile pages but in v2 1 9 it s in line 22 2 To change from You Follow to I follow initial changes were made to

  • How To Register A Domain Name For 99 Cents | Jay L.ee
    Wanna know how I do it Read on 1 Cheap domain registration Google it and you ll ALWAYS get multiple links from registrars selling domains for 4 99 or less The only caveat here is that you need to make sure to buy ONLY the domain name for whatever price the links offer and purchase nothing else For example some of the links only offer you the domain name for the promotional price if you buy hosting with it Whatever you do don t go for this option This is because you should purchase domains and hosting separately A future blog post will cover more details but for now don t buy anything else other than the domain name itself 2 Promotions I keep a dedicated Gmail address just for getting junk mails Most of these promotions do show up when you Google cheap domain registration but the difference here is that you actually know exactly when it starts enabling you to take advantage of it immediately and not miss it as promotions especially the 99 cents kind don t last long 3 99 Cents This is the best price I ve seen so far and it s almost always from 1 1 It happens once every few months and one is happening right now no coupon code needed whatsoever so go ahead and register that com domain you always wanted So did you guys notice the star sign yet Don t forget that these unbelievable prices are mostly for the first year only Domain registrars mostly make money after the first year when they can charge full price And most people don t realize that they can keep saving money by transfering their domain name elsewhere My next blog post will cover this very topic so stay tuned View

  • The Definitive Way To Create A Favicon | Jay L.ee
    16x16 name it favicon png In Windows 7 you can easily do this using Paint 3 Download png2ico Don t worry it s free Using this program is ABSO FUCKING LUTELY critical No other programs websites claiming to correctly convert images into favicons worked for me 4 Extract it to C There should now be a png2ico folder in your C drive 5 Move the image you just created into this folder 6 Open up the command line In Windows 7 just click the Start button at the bottom left of your screen and type cmd in the search box where it says Search programs and files the cursor should already be blinking in there 7 Type cd png2ico 8 Type png2ico exe favicon ico colors 16 favicon png those are 2 dashes in front of the word colors You can leave out the colors 16 part but the resulting file s size will be bigger which you don t want 9 Go back to the png2ico folder in your C drive and find the newly created favicon ico file 10 Upload the file to your website and link to it correctly The basic HTML code for this is something like link rel shortcut icon type image ico href favicon ico That s it P S You can see proof of a working version of a favicon by using Internet Explorer to go to my startup website Mediography by It was built in Drupal 7 where custom favicons don t work on IE no matter what unless you follow my instructions verbatim This blog post was written to solve this issue once and for all but should of course work for all favicons period So for step 10 in Drupal 7 you have to go to Appearance Settings Theme such

  • Jay L.ee Gaining Traction! | Jay L.ee
    And you won t make it to Alexa by having a few of your best friends visit your website from time to time either But if you do start getting a decent amount of traffic eventually it ll show up on their traffic rank And the more popular you get the better your rank becomes Facebook Google are currently neck to neck trying to grab the number one spot Now I don t know exactly how much traffic you need to get on Alexa but I do know that the ranking starts at approximately 30 million out of appromixately 350 million websites out there This means that if you re not one of the 30 million or so of the most trafficked websites it ll just say No Data Seven million out of 350 million websites means that my website is already more popular than 98 of all the websites on the planet And I just got started I m happy I m not entirely sure what I did right But the fact is that whatever I did right it worked Beginning is half the battle But they say that it really starts to matter when you break the 100 000 mark because that is when Alexa provides more detailed information such as demographics etc There is also a company called Compete that is known to be much more accurate in terms of how many people visit your website It is much tougher to get on that website so I ll provide an update once I get in there So whoever has visited my website so far thank you all Not that I want to be as famous as Jay Leno but I do want to be the most famous Jay Lee out there Time will tell View the discussion
