OldHippie.com Is For Sale

About 20 years ago I bought the domain name of OldHippie.com off the original owner of the domain, and for years it was a very popular Vbulletin board with many members discussing virtually every topic. In the last few years I’ve not done a good job of doing the site justice with my time, and I closed the site last month.

This is a screen shot of the forum in 2012

The domain name is valuable so I’ll continue to register it for the rest of my life (and then some as I renew 10 years at a time), or until someone makes me an offer I can’t refuse. Feel free to email me a reasonable offer at davetheoldhippie @ gmail.com.

I also have a Vbulletin 5 Connect license for the site, and have my own high performance dedicated service I can host a site on for you.

OldHippie.com is No More

Due to the lack of participation on the forum in the last couple of years, I’ve deleted the site and I will be selling the Domain Name and the Vbullentin license. It was a good 18 year run, but I don’t have the time to maintain a board that was experiencing such little participation.

I’ll most likely create a Facebook Group called OldHippie.com for those interested in that.

Dave Schultz – The Old Hippie

Facebook’s Gestapo and Dave Schultz

In 2018, Facebook has banned me 11 times for 30-days. I’m seldom un-banned for more than two or three days before banned 30 days again. Every time it’s pure Chickenshit, if I’m even given a reason at all. Look through my page at https://www.facebook.com/dave.schultz1 and you’ll be hard pressed to find anything offensive, but the doesn’t stop Facebook’s Gestapo. I appealed the first couple of times, but they went unanswered.

I just came off a banning a couple of days ago, and was banned again today. So what is the great offense this time?

It was this totally vile photo of me and my Schnauzers Smith & Wesson, which was posted over a year ago. It appears that their Gestapo has me on their harass list to perpetually ban me for 30 days every month. If we were wearing Pussy hats there wouldn’t be a problem. But I digress.

The funny thing about Facebook community standards, they have none for themselves. They’re all over the news today for giving away your private data to their bigger advertisers.

Just yesterday they were in the news for giving others access to your private photos in messages.

Facebook’s stock has dropped like a lead balloon in the last three months while most other’s have one well. Closed at $134 a share, down from $220 a couple of months ago. If you’re a FB stock holder, you’ve lost have of you’re business. If your retirement is in a Mutual Fund holding Facebook positions, you’re losing money.

The reason for their stock dropping is a combination of the fears of all of the suits against that are sure to come down from US and European government agencies, and the record number of people downloading all of their data on Facebook – which is an indicator that a pissed off person will soon delete their Facebook account. These are very bad trends, and Facebook’s future is starting to look bleak. They’re committing suicide from their Uber Socialist slant on postings an the privacy violations. I just two words to sum up my feelings of Facebook. Fuck Zuckerberg!

If you’re reading this on Facebook, consider sharing with your friends so the see the real Facebook.

 

 

Facebook Has No Sense Of Humor

Dave Schultz is banned on Facebook more often than not (9 or the last 12 months) for the most lame of excuses. Because of this I have a few pseudo personalities, (like Art Deco, Moe Heacan, Al E Gator, Ty Kuhn, Dixie Normus…) most of which ultimately get permanently banned from Butt Hurt Liberal Snitches blowing me in.

Today one of my pseudo got in blown in by a snitch for posting that Early Voting For Democrats begins on Nov. 7th.

I’m constantly getting banned for taking an anti-abortion or Islamic Pedophile stances, yet I see the reverse stances taken by Liberals make it easily through.

 

The Deep State is Watching You

I bought a bunch of Echos for my house on Prime Day. My daughter asked me if I wasn’t concerned about the Deep State, as recently the government subpoenaed the Alexa records of an Arkansas man from Amazon.

I considered that before buying Alexa, but I figured what the Hell. They already have all of my texts and phone calls. All of my emails and banking transactions, All my movements from cell phones and facial recognition from city street and toll cameras. All of my credit card charges. All of my facebook posts. All of my medical records from Obamacare. Their satellite cameras can look in my bedroom window. My cars and trucks have black boxes that report my car’s diagnostics, and a microphone they have control of. They have every Google search I’ve ever made and every site I’ve ever visited. They can take over every camera, phone computer and TV; smart refrigerator and washer; door bell or flood light camera; or anything else with a camera or microphone. My electric smart meter tells them how much electricity I’m using in any given moment. How much more help can Alexia give them on what channel I watch or what music I’m listening to?

If you think you are free from Deep State tyranny, you’re pretty stupid. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utah_Data_Center

You might pass this along to your family and friends. You are far from Free!

Will you Lose Your Internet Monday Night?

From Wired:

Tens of thousands of U.S. internet users could be left in the digital dark on Monday when the FBI pulls the plug on domains related to the DNSChanger malware.

Computers belonging to an estimated 64,000 users in the United States, and an additional 200,000 users outside the United States, are still infected with the malware, despite repeated warnings in the news, e-mail messages sent by ISPs and alerts posted by Google and Facebook.

The DNSChanger malware, which infected more than half a million machines worldwide at the height of its activity, redirected a victim’s web browser to sites designated by the attackers, allowing them to earn more than $14 million in affiliate and referral fees.

Dave Schultz and DDS Enterprises, Inc. have been designing web sites since 1994. Today we've created a new web site at www.SampleRaceTrackWebSite.com to give race tracks looking to upgrade their site an idea of what DDS can do for them quickly, and inexpensively.

Limited TIme Offer for Word Press Hosting

Word Press Plus Hosting Sale

$149 Year*

For a limited time, Big Kahuna Hosting will not only provide 1 year's web hosting with its "Deluxe Package" on a Premium web server, but we also will install Word Press for you and upgrade it to the most current version.

So what can you do with a Word Press Site? Click the below thumbnails to see some of the current Word Press Sites hosted on a Big Kahuna Hosting server, and get an idea of the wide variety of uses of a Word Press web site.

Word Press sites can be used as a personal blogs or a business web site; a site for a team, cause or organization; or just about anything else you've seen a web site used for. While the layout of the above sites are very similar because the author of them is the same, and he keeps them consistent so that he can more easily maintain, you really have a lot of flexibility with layout and the look & feel.

Don't let something you don't currently know intimidate you.

Once installed (and we handle all of that), you don't need to know a lick of programming code to adjust the look and feel of the site, or to add context to it. The look and feel is as simple as selecting one of the thousands of "Themes" — and clicking install. Features are added with "Plugins". Select the plugins you want from 1,000s — and click install.

When the Word Press operating software, a plugin, or a theme has been updated by the author — you are notified of the update in your control panel. Updating is as simple as clicking the update button. Adding pages (including the formatting of text and including images) are as simple as posting to a forum. Rearranging the sidebar widgets and menu order is as simple as dragging and dropping where you want them. There are forums for Word Press help all over the Internet — including the Big Kahuna Hosting forums.

So here is what you get for your $149:

  • 1-Year hosting on a Premium Server

  • 10-Email Addresses

  • 5 MySql Databases (1 will be used for Word Press; leaving 4 for Forums, photo albums, etc.)

  • 5 Subdomains (few use sub-domains so don't let that confuse you)

  • 5 Parked Domains. (For instance you can park the domains myurl.net and myurl.org on your domain myurl.com; and all three addresses will get you to the same web site)

  • 5 FTP access accounts

  • 15GB a month bandwidth (more than enough for 99% of the web sites on the net)

  • 3GB files space

In addition to being a satisfying hobby or full-filling your need for a web site, these are easy to obtain skills that once mastered can earn you a decent income — or your site can generate income through advertising banners (if it is popular enough).

The Steps to building your own Word Press site are:

  1. Decide on a domain name and register it, which will cost less than $10 a year. I started in the web business by registering my personal name in 1994. That's a good starting point if you want to learn the skills to create web sites at your own pace, but are not yet sure what your ultimate goal is.

  2. Sign up for Word Press web hosting at the bottom of this page.

  3. Log onto your admin dashboard to set up any email addresses you want to use for your new domain.

  4. Log into your Word Press Admin and choose the theme and Plugins you want to use.

  5. Tweak the Look and Feel of the Word Press site.

  6. Add text to your pages and posts.

If you have any questions, see if they've been asked and answered on the Big Kahuna Hosting board — and if not post it there. Or seek help from the thousands of forums dedicated to Word Press users or the Word Press site.

Use the below to sign up for a Year to Year Word Press subscription through PayPal. The subscription can be cancelled at anytime and your hosting will continue until the end of your 365 day term, but you will not be grandfathered in the special price for future years.

Your Registered Domain Name
Your Contact email

Notes:

  1. This is a Special Sale (not advertised on the Big Kahuna Hosting site) for the visitors of this site, which can be pulled at any time.

  2. Those who take advantage of the sale will be grandfathered into this sale price so long as they don't cancel the subscription

  3. The normal Set Up charge of $25 will be waived for this Special Offer.

  4. Word Press requires the use of one of the five MySql Databases.

  5. While Big Kahuna Hosting will create the database and database user, install Word Press on your hosting account, and update to the most current version — it is up to the user to complete their web site. This is not for a turn-key web site.

  6. All Word Press support will be provided through posting in the forums, so that all will benefit from the questions and their answers. Specifically, Word Press support will NOT be provided through Private Messaging, email, or telephone.

Back in 2003, I signed up with the same type of reseller plan running Go Daddy, and resold all of the products that Go Daddy sells (with the same back office as Go Daddy) under the name of Old Hippie Hosting (www.OldHippieHosting.com). It cost me $79.95 a year to be a reseller plus $8 a year for the domain name OldHippieHosting.com.

As a reseller, I was given the tools to create a web site (like www.SouthernStarHosting.com or GoDaddy.com), given a base rate for those products, and the ability to charge whatever I want above those rates — for my profit. The same back office that runs the far larger and more popular Go Daddy handled all of the order taking, billing, new customer setup, and the 24/7 support. My strategy was to keep the advertising expenses down (I don't have a pretty race driver doing commercials for me) and the prices even lower. I wasn't looking to make a lot from a few people — but a little from a lot of people.

I did very well with Old Hippie Hosting, and was then offered an opportunity to sell my same opportunity to other resellers — and so Old Hippie Domains was created. Southern Star Hosting became its first Pro Reseller (more on an annual basis — but a lower base cost for the products) so I could offer domains and hosting for even less. Despite charging far less than most everyone else for Domains registration and transfers, SSL Certificates and eCommerce, eFax and all of the other products — I'm doing pretty good my 6th year as a reseller.

If you are looking to make some extra scratch, feel like you have a good marketing plan, and have $79 a year to invest in your business — then you'll want to check out www.OldHippieDomains.com and give this some thought. All you have to do to set yourself up is:

  1. Think of a good business name and register it
  2. Sign up to be a reseller and forward your domain as instructed
  3. Spend an hour or two selecting the template for your reseller business
  4. Determine which products you want to sell, and the mark up of it
  5. Do as little or as much advertising as you want.
  6. Collect your commissions.

Everything else is handled professionally for you by the same experts that handle the big boys. They handle the credit cards, renewals, notifications, support, and everything else in your name. You literally don't worry about any of it. I've been doing this for almost 9 years — and have not once had a complaint with how a product or service was handled. All of my web sites are customers of  Southern Star Hosting — so I can promise that the back office is Top Shelf.

Create Your Own Web Site

There is a new look and feel for the web sites of three cars currently running in Nostalgia Super Stock.

If you've not created a web site for your race team, you might considering doing so. While winning is the number one secret to attracting sponsors, a web site is number two, and a Media Kit is number three.

Many feel like it is beyond their pay grade to create a team web site — but it actually very simple, and requires no programming experience. Word Press is a free application that allows the would-be web master to have a blog on the front page, and a number of information pages linked in the NavBar. It will cost less than $10 a year to register your Domain name (IE: BigRedRam.com), and just a few bucks a month to host it on a web server. There are no other expenses. The secret is to find a web host that will automatically install Word Press for you.

I've created a step-by-step set of detailed instructions to create your own Word Press web site — from registering the name, to selecting the host server, to installing Word Press, to creating your custom "Look & Feel", to posting context, to Search Engine Optimization. If you've ever registered and posted to a forum — you're over-qualified to create your own web site. Click –> Word Press for Dummies

50% Off

50% Off For Next Two Web Sites

When I have finished with the installation, configuration, and design of your site — you will have complete control of your site, and not need to be dependant on any web master. If you can post on a forum — you can maintain your own web site once I've finished setting it up for you.

  • You will be able to add you context (including images) in plain English — much in the same you you add a post in a forum.
  • You  will be able to customize your sidebar by simply dragging and dropping the widgets where you want

Major Redesign of DaveSchultz.com

DaveSchultz.com Gone Through a Total Redesign

zHMMmagnum25In 1992, I registered the domain name DaveSchultz.com so I could self teach myself web design, web servers, and learn more about the Internet. In the 20 years since — it has been quite a journey. Many of the items under the "Maniacal Ravings" menu were originally post on the site 20 years back — and still timeless today.

Over the years the site has gone through as many changes as the Internet has. The first site was done in Microsoft Publisher, later in Front Page, and now it is a Word Press site using MySQL and php.

I invite all visitors to browse around on the site and read the "Maniacal Ravings" articles (Like Rules to Date My Daughters), and the shorter posts (there are many pages of short posts — so click the older posts link at the bottom of each page to get the next page). The posts cover a wide range of topics from family, to politics, to humor, to drag racing, to Texas, to just about any other topic I felt to be of interest. Other areas of the site include racing, where I have short descriptions of my race cars; stuff I have for sale; and links to many of my other sites — because while DaveSchultz.com may have been my first — it isn't the only of my sites. Check it out!
