By Rangers, I mean the New York Rangers.
If you know me, you’ll probably be surprised by that title. I’m a Montreal Canadiens fan – why the hell would I be thanking the New York Rangers? They eliminated us, which meant I missed out on possibly celebrating my teams first Stanley Cup win in my lifetime(as I wasn’t a fan of the NHL in 1993).
Well – as painful as it was to watch the Habs succumb to the New York Rangers – there was a small part of my breathing a sigh of relief.
You see – I had tickets for a potential Game 7 between the two teams, at the Bell Centre. I bought the tickets prior to the dates even being announced – and unfortunately that ended up causing me a bit of a problem.
If I was going to attend the Montreal Canadiens vs New York Rangers Game 7 – I would have to go up to Montreal on Saturday May 31st, and return Sunday June 1st.
If I did that – I’d miss out on going with my son on the Saturday as he participated in a 5k race in Toronto, and then seeing my daughters dance recital the next day.
So that’s why I’d like to thank the New York Rangers. Because they saved me from a very difficult decision – and hey, made me look like a good guy! Because if push came to shove, in a massive series deciding game……..I just don’t know if I would’ve parted with those tickets.
Thankfully, when life gives you lemons you make lemonade with it. So the Habs lost – that sucked right?
But thanks to the New York Rangers victory I didn’t miss out on this:
And that’s worth more than a thousand Stanley Cups.
WordPress Security Tips:
The majority of you use WordPress. Hell, pretty much everyone uses WordPress. From large multi-million dollar companies all the way down to some emo blogger – it’s ridiculous just how widespread it is.
Of course one major issue is security. Seeing my friend Kev get his websites hacked repeatedly over the last couple of weeks, as well as the major All In One SEO Exploit – I thought I’d throw out some tips. I’ll be implementing all of these on my websites if I don’t have it done yet over the next week:
- Make sure WordPress and all plugins are regularly updated. I generally do this on a monthly basis.
- Change the location of the wp-admin folder.
- Make sure the administrators login is not admin.
- Install the Login Lockdown plugin.
- Make sure your server has a firewall running.
Now if you’re super concerned about WordPress security there’s a lot more you can do – but the above should cover about 99% of you.
Seriously don’t wait until it’s too late. Hacks can come from anywhere and you don’t want to have to fork out hundreds of dollars for a security audit when the above process can take just 5 minutes per site.
Link of the Week:
Man – do I love this concept. http://runpee.com/.
What is it? It’s simple: you go to the movies. You drink pop. You need to pee.
THIS APP TELLS YOU WHEN TO GO AND PEE DURING THE MOVIE.
Seriously – how bloody great is that? You go pee and you can read the app to make sure you aren’t missing out on anything.
I love the digital age that we live in. I really, really do.
Time Limited Niche Time Again:
Ah yes – that time of year again. My favourite time of year – where I build a Time Limited Niche website. Man I love doing that.
That’s why I’m writing this on Wednesday as opposed to Monday – because I was too busy launching my World Cup 2014 website – www.WorldCupBettingTips.org.
Of course – a couple of interesting things to note about that website:
- I am not confident in it’s ability to make money at ALL.
- I am convinced it will be a failure.
- I made many, many mistakes in regard to that website.
- Yet despite 1-3, I just don’t give a damn.
And with that teaser – I’m going to save explaining all that until an article next week.
Have a great week people.
