New Web Based URL Encode and URL Decode Tools

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

The other day we were  programming a new website feature for a client that required the use of URL encode and URL decode functions.

We realized that our uber-cool web tools site didn’t have any web based URL encode or decode functions, which would have been handy during our testing.  So, we’ve added them to our web based tools site for the next time we need them.

Here are the links to the new tools:

About a week ago, we were approached by someone who wanted to buy the domain and content of our website,

We decided to sell it, though, not without some sentimentality.  was one of our first websites.  It was the first, and currently the only, content site that we have created for our own operations.

Unfortunately, over the years, we weren’t able to invest enough time  in the site, and it fell into an unmaintained mode. That wasn’t a very good situation.  We never talked about the site much, in fact, this is probably the first and only mention of the site on this blog.

We wish the new owners of the site the best of luck.  We’ll be sure to visit once in a while.


Canadian Debate 2011 Bingo (English)!

Monday, April 11th, 2011

The first debate of the 2011 Canadian Federal Election is tomorrow.  It always seems to come so quickly, at least compared to the US elections where  the build up to the debates is months long!

We won’t know if this is an interesting debate or a snooze-fest, but you are encouraged to hedge your bets by printing off a few of our special edition Canadian Debate 2011 Bingo Cards.  Will F-35 jets come up?  Health care?  Education?  Aliens from Jupiter? Who knows – it’s Canadian politics, afterall!

Print a few cards off and at least someone in your group will win bragging rights for the night.
