On the road with GROWMARK - Day 1

I've been with GROWMARK for four years and I've had the wonderful opportunity to travel a fair amount within the System. However, I'm still amazed at how much I haven't seen. This week, a few locations will be crossed off of that list. This week, myself and three of my corporate relations coworkers have loaded up a minivan full of cameras, notepads, and chocolate and hit the road. Over the course of the week, we will visit 8 different System locations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. Our trip will take us to fertilizer facilities, SEEDWAY locations, and more. You can follow our trip here on the blog and on the GROWMARK facebook page, where you can guess where we are that day based on a photo that I post.

Today, our first day on location, we visited the GROWMARK Fertilizer Facility in Cincinnati, Ohio. This facility, formerly a CF terminal, then a part of a joint venture between GROWMARK and Bunge, is now a wholly-owned GROWMARK location. Equipped for 60,000 tons of dry fertilizer storage and 32,000 tons of UAN storage, the terminal is located on the Ohio river and receives all product by barge. With a staff of 10, the incredibly efficient facility can load 120 trucks in an 8-hour day.  

While the statistics and process at the Cincinnati terminal are very impressive, what really stood out to me were the people. Throughout our visit, I had the opportunity to meet nearly all of the 10 staff members and spoke with several customers. I was proud to hear each and every employee remark about what an excellent facility it was and how pleased they were to work there, and to be a part of the GROWMARK System. Customers remarked at how much they liked doing business with the Cincinnati facility compared to competing terminals in the area. I left Cincinnati feeling honored to be connected to System of hard-working and loyal employees and members.

I will give a brief recap of the journey each day here at the blog but we will be using the footage, photos, and stories from our trip in a variety of ways, including in Spirit magazine. ​

Hmm. Not sure what the issue might be with iTunes. When you say you've tried a couple, are they all <a href="">fanilig</a> or only some? Did you try mine?What I did was to add the ringtone to my iTunes library, and then with the iPhone connected and ready to sync in iTunes I dragged it it within iTunes onto the phone's ringtones section. Maybe an issue with format or length? I created the ringtone originally in GarageBand which has an  export as ringtone    I think they have to be in AAC format.

&#8211; I&#8217;m not convinced that didn&#8217;t work before, from my initial tests when it was first announced it seems they did manage to do that. The only difference being the SWF files would get indexed on separate URLs.What they announced yesterday puts data discovered through the headless Flash Player in context to the originating SWF.@TK &#8211; I think that is a very valid concern and one I was also wondering about. Don&#8217;t have a definitive answer, but using a robots.txt is easy enough and never been a believer of SWF as a means to obfuscate calls to the server.I think its fair to assume as a fact of life that URLs in any client side technology can get indexed and you can prevent that by using the robots.txt directive.

Gracias Sara.Con respecto a cómo publicar tu servidor de SSRS a internet, coincido con tu Administrador de TI. Debes de tomar todas las previsiones evitar exponer datos confidenciales a terceras personas que no deberían verlos. Y recuerda que no sólo estás exponiendo los reportes en si, si no potencialmente las fuentes de datos a las que se conectan estos reportes.Lo mínimo que debes hacer es separar las bases de datos fuentes del servidor de SSRS que expondrás a internet (si en caso tienes SSRS y SQL en el mismo server). Lo segundo es restringir a través de tus firewalls el acceso a los servidores de SQL, y restringir el acceso a tu base de datos desde IPs externos sólo al servidor de SSRS.Para ver mucho más detalles o mejores prácticas para publicar tu server, te recomiendo revisar el siguiente link: .Alan

Darryl - January 15, 2012Hey Denny,Fully understand where you are coming from on pricing for single site webmasters.  One thing I can say as a regular user of the product though, is that one full audit of your site is well worth the price of admission in time savings alone.For example&#8230; even if you value your time at a low rate of say $30 per hour&#8230; the cost savings of running this tool to find and fix your site pays for itself in less than a day vs. having to do this on your own using cheaper or free tools.
