You do NOT have to register your domain with a “search engine registration” company to be listed on most major search engines. There is no such actual service. Search engines do NOT rely on these companies for information whatsoever (to my knowledge) as they go to great lengths to develop their own software that finds and indexes sites. As stated, be wary of any “search engine” (not necessarily a directory) that requires you to have to pay to be listed. As well, be VERY wary of ANY site that asks for a SIGNATURE. Your mileage may vary. UPDATE: Name Cheap, Moniker Online Services, and the host of this alleged scam Host Key have been notified of this alleged scam. They have done NOTHING to stop it. I am confident in my opinion that any investigation into this would reveal it as a scam, as it has historically been determined. I have notified them repeatedly via social media and the proper abuse forms and I have gotten almost no response. They refuse to do anything about this alleged scam, and I can only surmise they don’t care that their services are being used to allegedly scam people. Despicable. ... [Read More]

Here On The Inside

At the beginning of their relationship (and eventual marriage), my well-read father told my mother there were certain books that she should read if she wished to understand his inner person. One of them was Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance. Others may have included Atlas Shrugged and The Seth Material, but these are ambiguous and unconfirmed. I went on to also read all of these and more, including most of Rand’s works and the entire Jane Robert’s/Seth canon. Earlier in his youth, my father also became a big fan of Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull fame. This appreciation stuck with him for the rest of his life. I think, in many ways, it served as a sort of nostalgic link to the past. It’s no surprise then that I spent hours listening to Tull through casual exposure and intent exploration. I think that Jethro Tull and Rammstein were probably his two favorite bands, as he’d listen to the latter while reloading ammunition in the basement during his alone time. On a side note, we had no idea until less than a year before his death that he spoke German fluently. Such was the man. ... [Read More]

We went to this H & R Block during the pandemic to file our 2019 taxes which included a joint filing because of a marriage, and an LLC to be taxed as a Partnership. We provided all paperwork, including my independent contractor papers, ahead of time to Marty Powers. When we arrived Marty hurriedly stepped through the filing without asking many questions, and I had to remind her upon review of the screen that *I* also had income and should be part of the filing. I had my contractor tax forms that she handed back to us in my hand, and had to show her that it was my name. These were forms she had two weeks to review. This was a sign of things to come. Upon review of the screen and the initial papers, we had no real reason to believe that our LLC was being filed incorrectly as a sole proprietorship. We are also not the tax experts in this situation, and for example, didn’t even know that partnerships had to be filed a month earlier. Turns out Marty, having asked no questions, filed our LLC partnership paperwork incorrectly. ... [Read More]
