PowerUserGuide.com’s future. Or “I really, really don’t like WordPress.com”

“What’s a PowerUserGuide.com”? asked the user who doesn’t follow everything I do? What, indeed. This was supposed to be a productive night Today was supposed to be a productive night. I wanted to make some changes to one of my sites. After I swapped out one cookie cutter template for another one, I wanted to …

Why I no longer recommend Siteground

Editor’s note: I forgot to correctly establish the timeline, and some people wondered about that. I should mention that I moved my website(s) away from them as early as November 2020, before their most recent price hike went into effect. In the previous version of this blog, this blog had a “Recommendations” section. Although there’s …

Announcing “From App To Zip”

After a lot of deliberating, the time is finally there to announce my latest project. Say hello to From App To Zip, everyone! And while we’re at it, we’re partially retiring Joomla & More.

Multiple Polish city domains compromised.

In the past few days, a trend has emerged on one of my websites. There has been a stream of subscriptions to e-mail updates from Polish e-mail addresses which are obviously fake. They’re using names which seem to be randomly picked from an American phone book. I can’t tell you what they are hoping to …

Analysis Paralysis deleted this post.

Earlier today, I sat down to write a blog post about a topic. However, the problem is that I can’t tell you what that topic was. I forgot because of what happened after I sat down. Once I was ready to start writing, I immediately got distracted. My brain kindly informed me that I have …

Creating a “Who’s Who” page for teams in Microsoft Teams

Today, I was curious to find out if there’s a simple way inside Microsoft Teams to create an overview of who’s who inside a team. Why would you need that? People that are new to your organization  might not always know who they can contact for certain questions. That becomes even more of an issue …
