CDEIS.COM is the domain name originally associated with CDEIS, Inc. (1999 to 2004), the privately held corporation of its founder and principal, Bill Nigh. The name is pronounced 'Sea Dice', hence the pair of dice against a watery background. In this corporate persona, CDEIS provided the business and delivery infrastructure for the talents of its founder and associates over the years, in AREV, Y2K remediation, data migration, web design, training, course development in Oracle and SQL, and PowerBuilder versions 3 through 10, with various RDBMS back ends. Currently, the web site serves as a publishing and promotional platform, and a venue for sharing information and opinion in search of a more just and secure world.
It's Official - We're Global
Although the accolade of being of global interest is not rare on the Internet, it is nonetheless welcome. Note the distribution of visitors to our site since its inception here. Granted, most of the visitors are from the home country of CDEIS.COM, but there is enough international interest to excite and to humble us. There's something special about the Internet, in our opinion.
