Someone briefly bought the Google.com domain

It is difficult for startups and entrepreneurs to procure a .com domain name that isn’t a ludicrous combination of words and numbers, so when former Googler Sanmay Ved managed to buy a pronounceable six-letter word on a .com, he was delighted. But the domain he bought was no ordinary URL — it was Google.com.

Thank-you, Ramsey!

Ramsey and I have been through some fun projects together since we started building Websites. I began with him during the MagX Web Design Division days building Websites for catering companies, McAllen Entertainment District businesses, coupon companies, musicians, promoters (one of which offers the largest EDM entertainment experience in Texas) and more. It was fun!

RGVWEBPRO (short for Rio Grande Valley Website Professionals) was born from those days.

Recently, however, Ramsey’s had opportunities to work on other projects, and, has had to step back from Website work. For that reason, he decided to transfer his share of RGVWEBPRO to me. All services will remain of high-quality, so nothing really changes. The only thing that changes is that I will be a little more nimble in decisions made in the interest of the clients that are hosted on RGVWEBPRO.

I’d like to take a moment to thank Ramsey for the opportunity to work with a mind like his, and, I look forward to the next project the future may bring us. I wish him the best in all his current and future projects. Thank-you, friend! As for the future of RGVWEBPRO, the outlook is great as I get to move forward in a direction of growth, innovation, and, customer acquisition.

Bootstrap 4 alpha

Bootstrap 4 is on the way and was announced this past Wednesday. One major change to Bootstrap is that it is dropping support for Internet Explorer 8, which means less hacking for backwards compatibility. Here’s an excerpt from the Bootstrap Blog:

Dropped IE8 support and moved to rem and em units. Dropping support for IE8 means we can take advantage of the best parts of CSS without being held back with CSS hacks or fallbacks. Pixels have been swapped for rems and ems where appropriate to make responsive typography and component sizing even easier. If you need IE8 support, keep using Bootstrap 3.

We’re playing around with it and looking forward to seeing how developers use v4 for Website development, backend UI, and, mobile applications.

What Do You Really Need in a WordPress Starter Theme? 

I think it’s safe to say that I’m somewhat obsessed with themes that help you get your WordPress projects started quickly. Most likely because I’ve been there, staring at an empty project folder wondering where I should begin. Well, you shouldn’t have to stare at that empty folder for any project. Even when you’re starting from scratch you’re probably not really starting from scratch, right? You’re taking an existing WordPress theme, either your own or someone elses, and hacking at it until it’s something new. That theme is your Starter Theme.

A Correction Around the Death of the Mobile Web

Mobile web and mobile in-app behaviour are not binary. When users are in the facebook app, they spend a tremendous amount of time accessing the mobile web through facebook’s own in-app browser. The same for twitter and others. We enter social apps for discovery and then access the mobile web while still in-app. It is a mistake to conflate time spent on the mobile web with time spent in a traditional browser.
