A Call From a Friend
Posted by Sal_Lizard Wednesday, 2014-June-04
Yesterday, as I was driving to my Georgia place, I received a phone call from Sean Kenney. For those of you who aren't aware, Sean is an actor best known for his role in Star Trek as the crippled Christopher Pike in "The Menagerie" (the healthy Pike was played by Jeffrey Hunter). He also appeared in the series as Lieutenant DePaul in "Arena" and "A Taste of Armageddon". I met Sean and his wife, Taki, when I was the President of STARFLEET, the International Star Trek Fan Association and we have been friends since.
Anyway, Sean called me to tell me about his new website and to see if I wanted to "exchange links". Of course, I did. Not only because we are good friends and I wanted to help him network but because our business is a networking-dependent business!
We also talked about his recent appearance with fellow StarTrek actor, Nichelle Nichols, in Las Vegas and his motorized "Captain Pike's chair", built for him by a fan. And, of course, we talked about our upcoming joint appearance at MonsterCon in July.
I always enjoy a phone call from my friends -- and not just those who are actors! There are so many people that I have met that have enriched my life. Friends that I went to school with, friends from the Navy, friends from STARFLEET and friends that I met at conventions.
So, check out my friend, Sean Kenney's new website at http://seankenneyactor.com and feel free to call me, sometime!
Resetting my Web World
Posted by Sal_Lizard Tuesday, 2014-June-03
As some of you are aware, I have been putting together websites since 1990, when there was hardly any images and most Internet traffic was text content. Along the way, I have put together some really great web sites and have generally evolved with the newest technologies along the way. But then, I got out of the business when everyone started creating their own websites and hosting became far less profitable for me.
But I did continue to create my own websites -- after all, why pay someone to do something that I could do myself? But then I lost my edge. I became interested in other things along the way: acting, comedy, writing, producing, and even forming other businesses, more appropriate for my current situation. All of these things took me down other paths and I had less interest in web development so I began to use website applications instead of doing my own coding and now, I've had to "pay the piper" for my laziness. Last week, my webhosting company shut me down because of "exploits" in my third-party applications.
So now I am re-designing certain sites -- including this one -- to exclude those applications. At least, to aelect those that are more secure in their structure or easy enough to modify to make them less "exploitable".
