The backup from the previous hosting provider was a bit over a gigabyte – that included my IMAP mail as well as … Read more Quick downtime
When I bought my MacBook Pro over a year ago, I also got AppleCare – it came highly recommended. Well, after a year of just dealing with the high-pitched buzzing sound, I decided to send it off for repair. I scheduled an appointment with the local Genius Bar, walked in, and they took care of … Read more Great Apple Service!
My friend RBChallenger from Lightning-Alley.com informed me that jbctech.com is worth around $19K on the LeapFish Domain appraisal site.
