Daxton’s Gaming PC Build

Daxton’s Gaming PC Build

My oldest son Daxton has been diligently saving his money and earning a bit more doing the yardwork and housework for me and Lisa this summer and was eager to build a high end gaming PC for himself.  He spent several weeks researching what he wanted and where to get...

New Job

New Job

Today is my 1 month anniversary working for The Promo Addict. It's been quite the adventure so far, learning lots and really getting into the swing of things.  I've known the owners Russell and Jocelyn Bird for nearly 10 years, meeting Russell when he joined up at our...

HostPapa Migration

HostPapa Migration

As I moved into a new job here at the end of June and I found myself not working on the site as much as I was previously, I thought it was time to move to a managed environment.  I wanted to keep my costs down yet still have a good performing website with full email...
