New Beta Site For thegulfcoastgeek.com

Posted October 20, 2016 By geek

ALERT: gulfcoastgeek.com is back online

Please check out my new beta site at: gulfcoastgeek.com

During this beta phase, I will be fine-tuning the site’s content, navigation and layout based on the feedback of users like you. Note that this is not the final site.

Over the last couple of months I’ve been working hard to make the website a much nicer, simpler, user friendly environment for you and I’m very nearly there. In addition I have added a new e-commerce solution as my current solution isn’t robust enough to accommodate my future growth.

I wanted to give you an early peek whilst I’m still working on a few tweaks before the official launch. I’ve identified a few issues that I’m currently working on and there are lots of tweaks to pictures and descriptions across the whole site that are being changed. And, as time goes on, I’ll be putting up lots more tutorials and tips.

The new e-commerce module is fully operational during this stage and reflects the most popular products within my storefront. So…if you, a family member or a friend needs a new media center computer and/or accessory you can order it here! And, all payments are handled through PayPal so you can rest assured your information is safe.

You may encounter the occasional broken link or error message. Let me know! This is what the beta phase is for, and your feedback will enable me to greatly improve the new site.

If you discover anything that I might not have or want to drop me a line anyway, you can do so at support@thegulfcoastgeek.com but do bear in mind the website is being worked on constantly and being changed all the time.

I hope you enjoy!

google chrome…unhackable?

Posted April 1, 2010 By geek

Well it’s official. Google chrome, the new web browser from Google has survived the Pwn2Own annual “hackfest” without so much as an attempt! In fact, this is the second year without an attempt!

For those who are unfamiliar with Pwn2Own, it is the annual competition that focuses on finding security holes in mainstream software and is currently in it’s forth year. Even though Chrome is currently beta software, I recommend it highly for those that want to maintain security while they are browsing on the internet!

Chrome works differently from other browsers in that it uses a process called “sandboxing” where processes are given as few rights as possible to get the particular task done on the web. Sandboxing also restricts processes between tabs, keeping the tabs separate from one another. In addition, if a malicious web site, or one which would normally freeze or crash an entire browser, is encountered, it will “crash” the current tab, not the whole browser!

While I still use Firefox for much of my day to day browsing, I am finding myself using Chrome more often, especially as it adds more features such as extensions and theming. You can learn more about Chrome here or download it for Windows here.
