(2015-11-10) 10 Years Of Blogging!

Posted by Jorge on 2015-11-10


About 10 years ago I started blogging and created my “Jorge’s Quest For Knowledge” blog, which has been and still is being read by many people around the world My biggest drive and passion to do this is to research and acquire knowledge, and then share it with others around the globe so that those people can use the information to their best usage in their day-to-day jobs. The very first post was on Tuesday November 8th 2005.

It has been so much fun to do this, and I hope it remains fun to continue to do this for the next ten years! Smile

Some statistics:

  • 807 blog posts
  • 1821 comments

From 2005 until 2011 I hosted my blog on DirTeam. Somewhere in 2011 I moved/migrated my blog to WordPress. Unfortunately I do not have any statistics from my old blog provider. The statistics from my current blog provider since I started using WordPress are:

  • 2011:
    • Views: 19326
    • Visitors: 0
  • 2012
    • Views: 110347

(2015-10-07) European Court Rules Against The ‘Safe Habor’ Agreement

Posted by Jorge on 2015-10-07


The European Court Of Justice (EUCJ) has ruled against the current Safe Harbor Agreement. Global cloud services/providers, mainly in the USA, may face a huge problem as it is no longer allowed to move personal data from EU countries to the USA.

(2015-10-07) Microsoft Announces The Surface 4 Pro – What MSFT And Others Are Saying

Posted by Jorge on 2015-10-07


Microsoft announced the Surface 4 Pro with Windows 10. I understand it can support up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. I do not want to know what that thing costs with those specs, but it is cool and definitely a laptop replacer!

(2014-06-18) Oh My Dear Blog – How Much I Have Neglected You!

Posted by Jorge on 2014-06-18


It has been quite some I blogged quite frequently. I have been too busy with all kinds of personal stuff that required my direct attention, and because of that I was not able to pay attention to my blog and its readers. There was just too much stuff going on at the same time. I hope to pick up where I "left" and start blogging again any time soon about all kinds of stuff I have in mind.

Cheers,
Jorge
