“Pay for faster connections”

A recent blog post from your FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, a former lobbyist for the cable and wireless industries, discusses his plans for new “open” internet rules, rules that many people feel will allow content providers to buy faster internet connections possibly leading to preferred treatment or extra fees for certain content providers. To most this seems to go against the very idea of Net neutrality, ” the idea that companies should treat all internet traffic equally”. What do you think? Check out the following article for more information.

overview

Updated Features Include:

Modern aesthetic

The new WordPress dashboard has a fresh, uncluttered design that embraces clarity and simplicity.

Clean typography

The Open Sans typeface provides simple, friendly text that is optimized for both desktop and mobile viewing. It’s even open source, just like WordPress.

Refined contrast

We think beautiful design should never sacrifice legibility. With superior contrast and large, comfortable type, the new design is easy to read and a pleasure to navigate.

High definition at high speed

WordPress is sharper than ever with new vector-based icons that scale to your screen. By ditching pixels, pages load significantly faster, too.

Smoother widget experience

Drag-drag-drag. Scroll-scroll-scroll. Widget management can be complicated. With the new design, we’ve worked to streamline the widgets screen.

Have a large monitor? Multiple widget areas stack side-by-side to use the available space. Using a tablet? Just tap a widget to add it.

Turn your blog into a magazine

Create a beautiful magazine-style site with WordPress and Twenty Fourteen. Choose a grid or a slider to display featured content on your homepage. Customize your site with three widget areas or change your layout with two page templates.

Happy Holidays From TierraNet

The holidays are upon us and, as we have every year, TierraNet has managed to generate a fairly large collection of toys to donate to the Toys For Tots program.

Watch it, share it, and, most importantly, feel free to donate to the Toys For Tots program while there is still time!  Happy holidays to everyone!

WordPress 3.7 “Basie”

WORDPRESS_3.7

Hey everyone, we wanted to let you know a new WordPress update is now available for download! Here are some of the features.

  • Updates while you sleep: With WordPress 3.7, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply maintenance and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. The update process also has been made even more reliable and secure, with dozens of new checks and safeguards.
  • Stronger password recommendations: Your password is your site’s first line of defense. It’s best to create passwords that are complex, long, and unique. To that end, our password meter has been updated in WordPress 3.7 to recognize common mistakes that can weaken your password: dates, names, keyboard patterns (123456789), and even pop culture references.
  • Better global support: Localized versions of WordPress will receive faster and more complete translations. WordPress 3.7 adds support for automatically installing the right language files and keeping them up to date, a boon for the many millions who use WordPress in a language other than English.
