Frustration and Choices

April 22nd, 2012 | 2 Comments | Posted in It's all about me, Pistol Grips, webstuff

So I’m busy-busy setting up the Rimfire website and have run into a fork in the road that I was not expecting (well, in a way I was, but not in the way I thought… I guess).

I have two ways to go on this site, I can set it up in WordPress and then use a plugin to make a shopping cart but the problem is that I am not a WordPress person – well, except for this site, so making modifications, theme adjustments and the tweaks to have it look just the way I want is going to be a lot of work (reading, learning, trial and error) that in all reality, I would just as soon dodge.

Other option is that I do the site in HTML, which is much more up my alley, and then put a WordPress folder in for the blog.  This would mean that any blog post I do would then have to be manually updated on the homepage with the new post information and create more work that way – which I would also like to avoid.

I’m not lazy, I just would really like to spend my time making grips instead of website updates.

Any thoughts or suggestions on the subject would be appreciated.

Which is apparently what AT&T forgot

On April 6, 2010, an AT&T Inc. T -0.60% manager pondered a drop in volume in the company’s government-subsidized service for hearing-impaired callers.

Reassuring a colleague in an email, the manager said she was “not ready to throw up flags” because “it was Easter Monday yesterday, which is celebrated in Nigeria.”

The exchange was part of a lawsuit unveiled Thursday by the Department of Justice, which alleged that AT&T knew the service had become a haven for Nigerian scam artists, while serving relatively few of America’s hearing-impaired.

Go read the whole thing, and next time you get a scam call from Nigeria, you know who to call and complain to.

 

**UPDATE**

Just found an email in my spam folder from the Central Bank of Nigeria (which strangely enough uses kimo.com as their email domain) wanting to send me money.  All I have to do is give them my bank account and routing number.

Think I’ll pass and just stay poor.
