Months and months go by…

April 20th, 2017 · Comments Off on Months and months go by…

And I forget to post anything.  It’s up here as a demo anyway.

The latest news on Experts Exchange is that I’m up to #22 and I don’t care because I’m getting bored.  The changes that have been made are bringing in stupider and stupider questions from people who aren’t smart enough to understand the answers anyway.

Over the River and Thru the Woodz…

August 5th, 2016 · Comments Off on Over the River and Thru the Woodz…

I finally got my site here upgraded to PHP 5.5.  Everything appears to going fine including this blogg.  I’m also up to #23 All Time on Experts Exchange.  The ‘upward climb’ in points is getting pretty steep now.  I have 13.4 million points and the #1 expert has over 40.6 million points.  It took me 6 years to go from zero to 13 million.  At that rate, I should have 40 million points in, oh, about the year 2030.  Except that everything will change and I will know nothing by then!!!

I do have 113 Expert Exchange Certifications which is more than anyone else.  It’s my jack-of-all-trades nature, I just learn something about everything I have to deal with.  And ‘share’ it even though this ain’t Facebook.

More ‘Advancement’ here again…

June 5th, 2016 · Comments Off on More ‘Advancement’ here again…

Last time I talked to you, I was at #26 and now I’m at #24.  On Experts Exchange.  Part of the reason is that TPTB have been catching up on old abandoned questions that I participated in.  This Verbosity will be the end of me.  I’d never make it in Politics.

Here I are again stilll……………………..

January 6th, 2016 · Comments Off on Here I are again stilll……………………..

I’m still at #28 on the Experts Exchange All-time list.  The ‘advancement’ takes more effort this close to the top and I’m not trying all that hard.  I keep gathering points but not very fast.  I’ll probably be #27 soon but I’ve been #28 since last June it appears.

More progress… sorta.

July 8th, 2015 · Comments Off on More progress… sorta.

It’s July 2015 and I’m up to #28 on the Experts Exchange All Time list.  They keep making changes that in my opinion make the site operate worse instead of better.  So many people and places seem to act like they are always decorating a cake made of concrete like the decorations are going to make the cake taste better.  I don’t think so.  But then… nobody ever asks me.

And this is supposed to be another paragraph.

Now to #30 on E-E…

March 23rd, 2015 · Comments Off on Now to #30 on E-E…

Yep, this is my post for 2015.  I’m up to #30 on the Experts Exchange All Time list.  I’m happy about that.  I keep slowly moving up.  A number of the people above me have stopped ‘playing’ so I will eventually pass them.  But the number of points between us at this level is pretty high at times.  I average about 140,000 points a month.  It will take me about a month and a half to pass the next person on the list if they are not making any points anymore.

Well… I’ll be back next year at least to update you on the slow happenings in my E-E life if nothing else.  Slow indeed.

Savant and 38th All Time

May 11th, 2014 · Comments Off on Savant and 38th All Time

I have moved to 38th All Time in Experts Exchange And… I have a Savant certification because I now have more than 10 million points.  !!  Hurray for me.

I still enjoy answering questions but I’m not nearly as anxious about getting points any more.  I am after all ahead of about 200,000 other people on Experts Exchange.  The #1 expert has about 35 million points.  At the rate I’ve been going, I should get there in about… 13 more years.

2014 to date…

April 6th, 2014 · Comments Off on 2014 to date…

I’ve made it up to #40 in the Experts-Exchange All Time list and I’ve got ‘certs’ in 83 Topic Areas.  I’m in the top 10 in 9 of those areas including #6 in PHP.  So I’m doing alright.

I did the full backups of 6 of my computers today.  One of them, the one that I use the most, is taking over 5 hours.  I guess I could off-load the 26 GB of Mexican Pop Music that was on it when I got it.  But hey!  I might listen to it again some day.

And I’ve made a post in 2014 now so I’m not too far out of date here!

The yearly post – 2013 now!?!

April 20th, 2013 · Comments Off on The yearly post – 2013 now!?!

The years keep slippin by here on the almost abandoned blog.  I’m up to #57 on Experts Exchange.  It’s a lot more difficult to move up now since I’m up with the other Experts now.  Mostly it seems I’m just keeping pace with the others now.
