Sorry for the lack of posts over the past few days, being sick sucks

Hey dotTechies,

I want to apologize to everyone — readers and authors alike — for the lack of posts for the past three or so days. Out of the blue I’ve had a bad headache which makes me want to do nothing but rest. Of course, I’m still chugging on for what has to be done (e.g. daily free and/or cheap software at SharewareOnSale) but am delaying what can be put off until tomorrow.

Don’t worry, we haven’t gone anywhere nor will we. Your lovable, cute authors (*cough* Briley *cough*) are still doing their job writing articles — I just haven’t had a chance to publish them.

Until tomorrow, friends.

-Mr. Boss

    Is your face green? and have you been to London lately?

    Get well quick, my friend.

  • JMJ

    Yeah, get better real soon, Ashraf. Headaches are the pits and warrant a doctor’s visit if they persist or recur.

    Follow vandamme’s advice and then wash it down with Seamus McSeamus’.

    Mike’s chicken soup works best with matzoh balls. Yeah, yeah, I know. ;-)

    All the best, Young Man.

    Right… sure thing…Jameson’s. Skip the lemon and honey…. ice and Perrier… Mmmmm…. But, of course, I don’t have a cold….. HA… Get well soon Ashraf…

    Salaam aleikum!
    I wish you a speedy and complete recovery.
    You do a great service to the IT community.
    Keep up the good work.

    [@vandamme] Don’t go muddying up the Jameson’s with lemon juice and honey. :)

  • Nice cough. You been practicing?

    Try a hot toddy. Lemon juice, honey, and Jameson’s whiskey. Doesn’t cure you, but you forget about being sick.

  • Sherri

    Hope you are feeling better!!

  • Ditto on all the Get Well Soon comments.

  • Gerry Locke

    Hi Shawn…

    Great… I’ll take you up on that. I’ll get back to you during the week.



  • Shawn


    Well should you want to be the first send me your logo to shawn.dion(at) I’ll be glad to make it as a font just tell me what key and the color palette you need as the new iso of the new font. The bigger the resolution the more I can make of it a png would be best but I can handle 150+ formats so this shouldn’t be a issue…

  • Mike

    Chicken soup, or hot and sour soup, by the gallon!

    Feel better soon!

  • Shawn

    I’ve hacked the ISO so that when windows 8.1 and the web browsers are ready I can convert anything to a font pulled off that stunt when I was drunk one night lucky for me I decided to have a live feed camera to record stupidity / creativity and well for once it worked. I figured a formula to make all color layers to a font in 48 hours apx I’ll have a 16 million palette font created as each is unique… size ain’t the issue now but quality…think of it this way letter “D” for dottech logo and “S” for shareware on …. could make image theft history…

    I still will keep my promise to ashraf in regards to the sub should the funds be there but in his case the video feeds afterwards are a full time job ;-)

    Hello Shawn….

    Sounds’ like a great idea the Logo up grade you mention. I’m a little curious so I hope I can get a look (sneak peek) at it, of course, after the “BOSS” does…. Have a nice day…..


  • melen001

    I’m sure that when you read this you will be up and ready to go. They say that chicken broth is good for you so give it a try. Well that’s what my grandmother use to say. I see that you are very liked (e.g. : Shawn) so “GET OUT OF BED” we are all waiting for you. I’m only joking of course, take your time and may God Bless….. Hope to hear from you soon….

    Ashraf… get well death doesn’t have time for your paperwork just like me…

    Wouldn’t want the whole system to get messed up.

    P.S: I purchased Scanahand from High-Logic and Font Creator Commercial and well considering less than 3 months for Xmas I wanted to offer something to all Dottechie’s and yourself and maybe it would be something for your sister site I want to offer free hand fonts or even drawings as we can create whatever template to convert to a font let me know if your interested I’ve got a dedicated machine for it.

    P.P.S: It’s also the color version so soon I’ll be able to create any logo to font I’m almost done my patent code for it and SOS is my test logo ;-)

    P.P.P.S: Did you know that your logo of Dottech looks amazing if you use imagemagick and cycle the 360 hues?

    Anyways enough mental torture Get well my friend..

  • Get well soon Ashraf!
