Yesterday we were working with our good friends at Portland Merchant Services with some very technical work on a pair of Verifone VX680 handheld payment devices.
I am very surprised by how little information is available about these devices on the open web. Now certainly, limiting the information available is important because of the need for security. But closed source devices like these often have numerous gaping wide security holes that never get patched because of their limited exposure.
Is anyone familiar with them? Is there a community of developers, administrators, or engineers that has deep experience with them?

Like many internet companies, we have been buying and selling domain names for a long time. While Joker has been our very favorite registrar for a long time, we have never really standardized on a marketplace for selling.
What are the best places to sell domain names these days?
We have accounts on Sedo, Snapnames, Flippa, and of course the Big Daddy.
Which one is your favorite?
Your Computer Genius has worked with Strength Productions LLC for a long time. When they needed a web site to support and sell their new product, YCG came through for them. Strength Productions is a training success story — once WordPress was installed, they practically designed and built their own site!

Here’s a review of an interesting WordPress plugin called Redirection.
Today marks the second day in a row I’ve worked from the same place — the YCG Northwestern Headquarters. Above you can see the lovely scene that greeted us as we cruised into Vancouver, B.C. this last weekend for an extended series of face-to-face client meetings.
Being on the road constantly has lead us here at Your Computer Genius to perfect the Digital Road Warrior’s arsenal, or rather, to make the most of the available technology, while striving to keep costs down, equipment fresh, and the backpack light.
