People, tdotpoints is live, thanks to the black Friday special. I purchased my first domain name ever for under $12USD!!! How exciting is that. Now after about 4 hours of playing around with my new email accounts, (yes, I have my own @tdotpoints.com email accounts now, YAY for Google!) I thought I should share this Exciting news with you all!!!! hahaha

I’m the biggest dork out there, I know! lol… But things like this amuse me for hours. I have decided to spend more time on my blog to make it more interesting to all those web surfers and bring some traffic to it. I’ve been to lazy and to be honest, I need something new to do. I’m too damn bored doing my own job that pays me well! lol….how sad is that!

So for all you professional bloggers, give me some ideas about how to make my blog more appealing to the masses and even maybe some fun widgets to bring some life to the screen?

I’m still trying to figure worldpress out, so far i haven’t managed to figure out how to put an email link on my posts. That’s next on my list of things to learn, oh, and coming up with a nice signature thingy to put under my posts. I’ve seen a few blogs who have them, looks pretty neat!

But till i find one this is all you get

Mmmmm…cashmere!!!!

26 Nov

 

Today I walked into cashmere heaven… Canada are you ready….Banana Republic is having a cashmere sale.

Beautiful vee neck sweaters for both men and women only for $98 and infinity scarves for $48. How awesome is that? I got myself a nice lavender sweater and a pretty pink scarf! Merry Christmas to me!!!!

I love these types of promos. Limited time, limited quantities and crazy shoppers. Awesome mixture!

One thing I do enjoy about the holiday shopping season is the great deals retail companies have. Well, not all of them but most retailers go all out to bring in every passerby inside their store. Specially this year everyone is on over drive. So, don’t forget my discount hunting friends, sign up for your favorite brands e-letters. You wont regret it. If you are one of those people who hates getting spam mail in to your inbox do what I do, open a shopping email account. Every time you want to sign up for a e-letter just use that email and save yourself from having to press the delete button 30 times an hour and still get all those amazing deals!

So, happy hunting….

What were the first words…..

10 Sep

Have you guys ever wonder what were the first spoken words over the telephone back in the day. What where the first test msges sent, even the first tweet!
Well, wonder no more. I recently read an article in Newsweek about this very topic. I found it very interesting and somewhat funny.
So here it is:

First Messages on Twitter, IM, Telegraph and More

This spring, we chuckled when Stephen Colbert asked Twitter cofounder Biz Stone if, given that the first message sent over the telegraph was “What hath God wrought?,” the first Twitter message was “What hath God twat?” Which got us to wondering: what exactly was the first message sent out on various modes of communication? Answers below:

TELEGRAPH: ‘What hath God wrought?’America’s first telegraph message was transmitted by Samuel F.B. Morse from the Supreme Court room in the Capitol to his assistant, Alfred Vail, in Baltimore on May 24, 1844.




TELEPHONE: ‘Mr. Watson-come here-I want to see you.’The first telephone call was made by Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, to his assistant Thomas Watson on March 10, 1876.

E-MAIL: ‘QWERTYUIOP’The first e-mail message was sent through ARPANET (precursor to the Internet) by Ray Tomlinson of BBN Technologies in late 1971, between two computers that were literally side by side but were connected only through ARPANET. The exact text has been forgotten, but it is reported to be something like this. The first spam e-mail message was sent via ARPANET on May 3, 1978, to 400 users by Gary Thuerk on behalf of the now long-defunct computer manufacturer DEC, advertising a new line of minicomputers.

AOL INSTANT MESSAGING: ‘Don’t be scared … it is me. Love you and miss you’The first documented AOL instant message (sent through the AOL client) was sent by future AOL vice chairman Ted Leonsis to his wife on Jan. 6, 1993. Her response: “Wow … this is so cool!”

SMS (TEXT MESSAGING): ‘Merry Christmas’Neil Papworth, an engineer at Airwide Solutions, sent the world’s first text message from a computer to a cell phone. The message was sent to Richard Jarvis, who was at a Christmas party near Vodafone headquarters in Newbury, England, in December 1992. The first commercial text message was sent from Los Angeles by Brennan Hayden, at the time an engineer for the Irish wireless company Aldiscon, in June 1993: “burp.”

SKYPE: ‘Tere, kas sa kuuled mind?’The first full sentence spoken over Skype was uttered in Estonian by an unknown member of the original development team in April 2003. Its English translation is “Hello, can you hear me?”

TWITTER: ‘just setting up my twttr’The first tweet was by Jack Dorsey, creator, chairman, and cofounder of Twitter, at 12:50 p.m. PT on March 21, 2006.
