It’s the middle of summer and it sure feels like it! This Oklahoma web developer caught a cool spell recently, dropping just below 100 degrees in time for the Fourth of July. Our offices will be closed on Wednesday July 4th, but a shortened work week only means harder work the other four days! We have a habit of making up for lost time around here. But for tomorrow, the team at Redhead Labs is planning on enjoying some good company, good food, and some good times to honor the nation’s 236th year. We want to wish all of our clients, our friends, and family all a safe and enjoyable holiday!

We’ve added a slew of new websites to our portfolio. And another of our great website designs was featured recently on the BigCommerce blog!

Redhead Labs, Tulsa web developer and BigCommerce Designer, has been collectively cheering all year for the Oklahoma City Thunder, one of the biggest names in sports right now. And small wonder – the team has garnered followers coast to coast and just recently won the first game of seven in the NBA Finals. The Thunder’s success can be attributed to many things: the youthful athleticism of its stars, the dedication of the team and staff, loyalty to one goal, and the focus to win a championship. As loyal Thunder fans, Oklahoma web developer Redhead Labs understands all these skills. We believe many of them transcend basketball and can be applied to your business as well. Maybe not athleticism or a tangible trophy, but core ideas such as teamwork, dedication, and goals can go a long way in business and in life. Uniting a city and state, the Oklahoma City Thunder continue their playoff run tonight. Redhead Labs looks forward to this series and can’t wait to see how it ends!
The Internet has undergone a major change recently, one that 90% of web surfers probably aren’t even aware of. Maybe a little background can shed light on the latest topic on the web. In simple terms, an IP address is a series of numbers assigned to each device with a connection to the Internet. Previously, IP addresses contained four sets of numbers (12.3456.7890.12, for example). This is referred to as IPv4 and has just over 4 billion possible addresses. But surprisingly, that’s not enough. In just a few short years, access to the Internet has exploded and it became apparent that the millions of new users would need millions of new IP addresses. They’re getting just that and more. With the new IPv6, there are 340 trillion trillion trillion possible new addresses. That’s no typo – just a lot of new people connected to the Internet! So what does this mean for your online business or personal computer network? Not a whole lot right now. Most devices are still connected to the Internet using IPv4 and are likely to stay that way for some time (it’s only been two days since IPv6 was launched, after all!). It’s something you’ll want to keep your eye on for the future – but right now just read up on how a major global change for good is going by largely unnoticed.
