Call it a bribe or call it a gift

Posted by rexdixon on December 27, 2006

If Microsoft wants to hand over a Ferrari to Rex Dixon, I have no problem with that. You see, there are times in your life that you look back or will look back and say “Damn, I should have taken this road or that road and I’d be at this place or that place in my life now.” Trust me, Rex Dixon has traveled many a road in his lifetime, and hindsight is always 20/20 perfectly clear.

Remember that one car commercial like 2 years ago I think? It’s debut was during the Super Bowl. This guy was walking down the street and his cell rings. He answers and it’s himself calling himself from the future. His future self was telling his past self to ditch the girl and buy the car. Remember that one?

So yes, if Microsoft wants to hand over a late Christmas present to Rex Dixon, I could use one of those laptops. Seriously. I don’t jest.

Technically Speaking, I’ll take one in 2007. But seriously, I really could use one. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m getting tired of being chained to the desktop these days. I could really do this blogging thing from the bed or the couch.

We should be rockin’

Posted by rexdixon on December 27, 2006

The new theme has been installed and tweaked now. It works in IE and Firefox. BTW – only 4.5% of the readers of the new site – http://rexduffdixon.com – actually use IE! Now that all that has been done, it’s time to get back to some fun again.

Oh and another btw, I have been on Meebo for the past 3 hours or so. Still am, so if you want to chat with Rex Dixon – I’m around for a bit.

One last thing — if you are a feed reading individual (such as myself) – please, please, please — should I throw one more “please” in there for good measure? UPDATE your feed —- http://feeds.feedburner.com/rexduffdixon

Working on the site…

Posted by rexdixon on December 27, 2006

http://rexduffdixon.com – so there may be some “downtime” from time to time. I’ll update this when I’m done! Have to fix that theme issue of IE that was found this morning. Hopefully won’t be more then a few hours!

Open Letter to “dp” and all Feed Subscribers!

Posted by rexdixon on December 27, 2006

dp – and all feed subscribers: 

The new feed URL is – http://feeds.feedburner.com/rexduffdixon

I am working on the new blog – http://rexduffdixon.com – and as I stated, it’s a work in progress. It just went “live” yesterday. I thought I stated clearly that this was the beta run of this domain (http://rexduffdixon.com)?

I already know the theme is not going to work. I will fix that later today. IE screwed that up, again looks fine in Firefox!

I know about the graphic (logo), and that has already been addressed by my “amateur” graphic artist. She has sent me a new logo that doesn’t appear washed out. Again, that will be taken care of later today.

The other items I will evaluate and address – again later today.

My only comment is – dp – next time leave a valid e-mail address so I can reply personally. My e-mail is found by listening to one of my podcast endings. I don’t sell e-mail addresses to spammers! I can feel your caution though, that’s why my e-mail address is found at the end of my podcasts.

FYI – I was up until like 1:30am and had to wake up at 5am to go to this day gig. So, to address another one of your issues – I do not make a dime running this blog. In fact as you can already see, it has cost me time and money.

I do however appreciate the feedback, and for further information for all – please leave a valid e-mail address in the comments. No one ever sees that except ME.

Sincerely,

Rex Dixon, owner and sole blogger at http://rexduffdixon.com
