I am hearing from a lot of people that Verizon Wireless is down in NJ. Here in North Jersey I do not have voice or data service. I have not found any news story to link to yet, but Verizon Wireless’ Facebook page is filling up with complaints.
I have been fighting to download a Microsoft Server 2008 R2 ISO from Microsoft for a few days now. To skip all the details, I was not able to use Microsoft’s File Transfer Manager application, so I was stuck with an HTTP download. After multiple failed attempts, I finally got (what I thought to be) a completed ISO downloaded. During the install the server could not find the appropriate RAID driver, which I thought was weird given we were using Dell hardware, so I proceeded to download the Dell System Build and Update Utility which handles the driver install automatically.
Well, that STILL didn’t work, so a quick call to Dell about what I thought to be a driver issue proved to be pretty fruitful. They had told me there were seeing a lot of large ISO downloads being incomplete, and give odd behavior during the setup. I got lucky in that I could not install Windows at all. He said he had recently had someone who had Windows all the way installed, but when they tried to add features or roles, it would fail. Sure enough, the ISO was not complete.
So the moral of the story is this, when you are downloading large multi-GB files, especially from Microsoft, check the file size to be sure you downloaded the whole file. And as an aside, Google Chrome came through for me when Internet Explorer and Firefox were unable to download the file. Not sure if it was just a new day, but I though I’d let you know what eventually did the trick.

If you’re not aware of freedom ride, this year they are riding to support Urban Impact’s new program for girls. Corneredge is a proud supporter of Urban Impact. It is one of the awesome ministries that truly reaches out to kids in our own backyards in Camden, Brooklyn, New Brunswick and many other areas. These kids have truly tragic stories. From living on the street, bad family situations, only being able to get a meal at school, no heat, no Ac, no money… and often little hope. Urban Impact gives them monthly activities, a message of true HOPE, mentors to work with them regularly, FOOD, and works with their local churches to ensure continuity. The program really works, and can’t grow without outside funding. Consider supporting them today.
We’ve heard both sides of the story, from an art director venting “the programmers don’t understand the brand” to developers saying “the designers don’t understand the web.”
Corner Edge provides a unique service to several design studios and advertising agencies that eliminates this issue, allowing creatives to maintain complete creative control while reducing overhead cost through outsourced development. What makes our development service so unique is not only our top notch developers and database engineers but their collaboration with our design staff. Our designers are steeped in a traditional print background. In addition to being excellent interactive designers, our staff has more than 20 years of experience in advertising, packaging, collateral and publishing. This diversity makes Corner Edge designers ideally equipped to serve as liaison between our clients creative departments and our developers.
We understand both sides of the spectrum so nothing is lost in translation. If your agency/studio is geared primarily towards providing print advertising, package design or branding yet has a need to also deliver integrated, branded web initiatives Corner Edge can help you provide that service. Because our designers posses well rounded creative experience in both web and print they can effectively communicate with your creative team in the same language to ensure a cohesive brand translation from print materials to web and mobile devices. This translates into time savings, fewer missed deadlines, and project success.
If your client needs a web site, mobile app, social media marketing, or other interactive product and your considering outsourcing the development be sure to partner with a company that understands your business and one that can bridge the gap between print and web.
