PostSubject: Introducing Oren Birks   10/4/2010, 15:17

My military background was 12 years of active duty service to the Air Force as a TS/SCI Computer Operations specialist. My career took me through South Korea, Iraq, Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia over my tenure and I worked with all branches of service on joint classified networks. After the birth of my second son, and the increase in deployment tempo, I chose to leave the military and pursue my career as a technology executive. I have earned a bachelor of science in management from University of Phoenix, 2 associates degrees from the Community College of the Air Force in Information Technology and Applied Science and will complete my MBA from the University of Kansas in the coming spring.
A passion of mine has yielded the creation of a new business dedicated to honoring veterans of all branches. USA Window Ribbons was established in February of 2010 and has formally launched the website in early September. Found at [Only admins are allowed to see this link] the site allows users to easily select the ribbons and devices earned over the course of one's career. These ribbons are a symbol of the campaigns, locations and distinction of service for the men and women who answered the call to duty. The Window Ribbon is a tasteful and respectful way to show your military pride and connect with other veterans.

Welcome Oren, glad to see that you have arrived. In addition to the email I sent, I also updated the on-site instructions as well which should also help. Email me back if you have any other questions and I will be happy to help you out. The concept it new so it may need some tweeking. Thanks again for signing up and please let me know of any forum changes that should be made, within the appropriate channel, to make the experience better for yourself and others.

Very Happy

Welcome to the forum. Like I said I think we're all going to do well...but nick is bent outa shape cause people register and don't post, but I told him it takes time. He is thinking in terms of what we did regarding SEO and getting on google, but not everybody needs that for their business...so I told him to be patient...hurry and wait!

I can understand his frustration that the forum is not being used as a forum yet. Patience is difficult for people that are in constant motion.
He and I need to connect soon on the Window Ribbons tie in for the signature block. I like the photobucket idea, it works well, but the issue with shrinking the URL to allow larger racks to fit will reduce the number of people who complete the build. Not to mention there are no devices available- difficult to do but accuracy matters.
We can discuss some options as we get into how we will link the two sites.

yes, I did not notice the issue until the "marine and army" ribbon pages went live. I need to replace the "long photobucket url" with the "tinyurl" and the problem of having to edit the length will be fixed. I was kind of pressed for time on finishing this forum so it is what it is at this point and will grow with the community. We definatly need to chat as im not really sure what exactly your are looking to do...let me know what would be the best way to contact you and I will do just that.

I was hoping to integrate the Window Ribbons site and graphics into the ribbon rack for signature blocks. I fear this would be a step backward from your initial push, given that I would want visitors to actually purchase the Window Ribbon prior to offering them the signature block graphic from my site.
Perhaps there is still something that can be salvaged given the need to have devices on the ribbons as well.
Best way to reach me is email at [Only admins are allowed to see this link].

Sounds good. I understand the need to organize thoughts prior to jumping into the conversation.
Email certainly works best for me as I am usually chained to my day job desk and must divide time between the venture and the steady income. Perhaps when the business gets going I will be a position to free myself from outside employment and work for myself 100%.
That is the American dream!
