About Jim

Hi, I’m Jim. A father, husband, business owner, entrepreneur, and a person who loves technology. I semi-often update this blog. This blog is about technical items, life, fun, activity, and soccer that I update infrequently. I would love to say that I will update this site daily but, that is just not going to happen. I am a father of 4 great kids and find myself surrounded by family and fun.

Why have a blog

Jimiz PhotoI have always enjoyed sharing my experiences and especially my technical projects. You will find my posts are a collection of projects that I am working on, products that I have enjoyed (or not enjoyed) and technology in general.

I attempted years ago to do some journaling, and those attempts at journaling turned into blog posts and somewhere along the line I decided a blog was a good idea.

This blog has been active since Dec 15th, 2000. This little blog has gone through a lot of changes over the years. It started on an old cobalt server running chili asp. From that time it has evolved a bit, I found a screenshot from the Wayback machine from January 2002. At that time I was focused on soccer and life. As time progressed, this little blog moved on to information regarding more soccer and then kids. Now It is just a way to share part of my life.

What is Jimiz all about?

Jimmyz LogoI have always been a huge Jimi Hendrix fan and loved the spelling of Jimi with the ‘i’. As a kid, I was called Jimmy by every parent around. Somewhere along the line, during my skateboarding days, there was a brand called JimmyZ, I had an old shirt from them. I always thought it was just a cool surf company, with a great name. Early on the internet, I needed a username for sites and one that people were not using, so I took the two cool things I knew “Jimi Hendrix and JimmyZ” and came up with “JimiZ”. It has stayed with me ever since.

Business Life

I have been blessed with a great family and career.

I currently am working with some great partners and building some wonderful businesses.

  1. Thanks for the how-to post Jim. With 50+ categories of content filtering OpenDNS is definitely a great way to secure home Internet for kids, while making it faster and more reliable for the whole family. I’m sure this will help a lot more parents set-up OpenDNS on their routers, which helps ensure that every device in the home is covered, including laptops, iPads, XBoxes, the Wii, and more. We’d love to send you an OpenDNS t-shirt so you can show off your Internet know-how! Can you send me your size and a shipping address?
