Book and Service Announcements

As I am getting things in place for 2009 I wanted to post a quick update here on the blog about a few new exciting things that I am working on and to notify everyone of a new service offering that IowaComputerGurus is starting today.

Book Announcement

The biggest news of all is that I have another book writing deal with Wrox Press.  I have hinted about this over the past few weeks, but it is now official that I will be writing another book for Wrox.  I can't say alot about what is in the book, but it will be a book on Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0.  As I have more abilities to make comments and provide information, you will find it here.

New Service (MyWebKeepAlive.com)

For quite a while now I have been talking about creating a keepalive solution for users as alternatives to Host-Tracker or Pingdom.  This is finally becoming a reality, and in the next few weeks will have a home on the internet via MyWebKeepAlive.com.  The good news is that I can set clients up with the service now as the backend processing portion is fully functional. 

Pricing for this service is as follows.

  • 1 URL - $19.99 a year
  • 5 URL's - $49.99 a year
  • 10 URL's - $79.99 a year

This service is a simple keepalive service that will ping your site every 9-13 minutes to prevent ASP.NET unloading.  The service will expand to include additional report elements to provide a better overall value.

For those interested in a keepalive solution, please e-mail me at [email protected] and I can discuss getting you setup before the public launch of the website.

Future Blog Articles

I still have a big backlog of blog topics, so be expecting new posts here about things such as ASP.NET Charting Controls, Redgate Tools Reviews, Active Forums Reviews and more!  As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions.
