Only 4 years

3 years and 11 months ago I wrote this post advertising for an Project Executive to join the team.

Business is Backgammon, not Chess

Half baked 419 scam

419 scam emails have been around for a while now. You know the ones. “I’m the bank manager for the ex-president of so-and-so and I want to share $40MILLION DOLLARS with you”. I had one when I tried selling my sisters car (with her permission of course). It came from Read more…
