Late Night Sunday Update

My parents have been in town this weekend, so things have been a bit hectic. Here are a few quick Sunday hits, most of which are unrelated to domain names.

– The Javitz Center in New York was packed with exhibitors for the New York International Gift Fair, and it seemed like there was a lot of order taking and very little commiserating about the economy. The scene was much more upbeat than I thought it would be prior to attending. IMO, this is a very good sign, although I am still a bit pessimistic about our economy. If retailers are busy placing orders for the upcoming holiday season, it means the economy may have turned a corner.

– I made a great salmon dinner tonight and wanted to sort of share the recipe. I basically winged it from a memorable dinner I had a few years ago, but I think it tasted just as good. I spread a very light layer of dijon mustard on top of a salmon filet. I then nearly covered it in finely crushed ginger snap cookies. I baked it for about 20 minutes in an oven that was around 350-375. It tasted great.

– I posted an article earlier today in error. I started writing a couple of blog posts for tomorrow, and instead of scheduling one post for tomorrow, I posted it this afternoon, and the domain news aggregation sites picked up the feed. If you got a 404 error, I apologize.

– I have had a few people complain and/or inquire about my blog not having a full RSS feed. It’s not an error, but rather intentional as I want to maximize the value for my blog advertisers. Sorry to those who use iPhones or other devices and are unable to access my feed.

  1. Ginger snap cookies on Salmon? I would have never thought of that! I’m going to give it a try myself since I’m just starting to improve my cooking skills, albeit very slowly 🙂
