I went to an interview and basically ended up telling the guy that the company was not for me. But I did learn something:

I found out how to track email being opened, pretty cool trick, ready for this awesome trick?

When the email gets created in an app, a small 1px img is saved on the server, a guid.gif, transparent gif. guid meaning like der35d288d5jsk32.gif

This gif is added to the email address and when the email is opened, the gif is pulled from the server, and on the server the folder has a listener and when that gif is requested it takes the guid off the gif and updates the database. Pretty cool…

Now doing it is really easy in the application, well kinda if you know what you are doing. Then on the image folder, like emailpics needs a listener service to "listen" when an image is open, when open, grab the guid off the name of the image and update the database…

Always Check you Child’s Homework

Here is an email I got from a great friend of mine and partner, Robert Gomia (www.RobertGomia.com) He is currently working on some cool things at MyBana.com (Spokesmodels) and sent me over this funny email, take a look:

 Always Check Your Child's Homework (before it goes to school)

(Here's the reply the teacher received the following day)
 
Dear Mrs. Jones,
I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer.
I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture doesn't show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot.
From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Smith

Sunday morning meditation

Sunday morning meditation. I love coming down here by myself to pray and meditate about life, God and the many things I am thankful for… It is amazing how much my life has changed in the past few months. Life is just plain awesome! This place is really quiet on Sunday morning, right under the little pier on Honeymoon Island Fl. See and rate it on GroundMap soon!
