I Used to Make Computer File Backups on Cassette Tapes

August 21st, 2015

I have known the value of making backups of files all the way back to when I was writing BASIC on a home computer that used audio cassette tapes to store the programs and files on. I sometimes would write code for hours only to lose it if I only saved one copy. The technology was far from flawless. Though hard drives and computers are much more reliable nowadays, I still make redundant backups of critical files. I like storing things off site now in the cloud, and that is why I looked for a cheap R1Soft license.

I remember what I call my first real computer. It had a 20 megabyte hard drive. I ran a Bulletin Board Service on it. Those were popular before the Internet was really a thing the public could use. Back then you used your computer, a modem and your phone line to physically call and connect to another computer. Email was rudimentary, and gaming was more text than graphic based.

It is Really Beautiful Up Here

April 5th, 2015

Of course we are basically living on the water and out away from any place that has occupation. It is about a mile and a half by road from here to our closest neighbor, but we can get in the boat and go eat really easy. Of course we have the really nice home security system with a bunch of high definition video cameras. In fact we are paying for the monitoring service from Olympia home security by adt. I am going to be gone a lot of the time, because I have my territory to cover and so I worry about Terry and the Kids being here alone. Read the rest of this entry »

Started to Fix Work on the Basement

March 13th, 2015

It is not quite as simple as I was thinking it would be when I started to think about what I was going to do. Of course it was obvious that we would eventually want to finish the basement, but we probably should have thought about what we needed to do when we built the house. Of course I was not thinking it would be a big ordeal, but I talked to these plumbers in Bristol and they were explaining that there were a lot of problems with putting a bathroom down in the basement. Of course if you have all of the other stuff down there you are going to want to have a bathroom for sure. I am going to have a game room and a big TV, obviously I will have a bit of bar as well. I guess it will be sort of like a snack bar in a movie theater if I do what I would like. Read the rest of this entry »

Why I Stick with Using a Virtual Office

March 7th, 2015

If I had waited to begin my business until I had a big office and employees, I would not have a business. I had an idea and needed customers right away. Think about it. If you are in business, you need to be earning money. The sooner the revenue starts rolling in, the better it is for you. I started my business doing the work and worrying about all of the peripheral stuff later on. I was doing the jobs and getting paid with very little infrastructure in the beginning. One thing I keep is my virtual office.

I am established now with all of my ducks in a row so to speak. I no longer am scrambling at the last minute to meet a deadline. I am no longer begging potential customers to give me a chance. I actually have a personal life again. Read the rest of this entry »

Started to Work on the New Marketing Campaign

February 26th, 2015

Of course my boss is looking for something which is prestigious. He showed me an ad that he liked.. It said that they were an award winning company in storage – Store Friendly was the name of the company. Obviously he wanted me to say something that made us sound like we had won awards, but I am not sure who they are talking about or who it is who gives out awards. They say they won an award, but what sort of prize do you get when you are good at storing stuff and who decides that you deserve it. Of course they have all of these marketing surveys and I think the one they always talk about is J. Read the rest of this entry »

November 25th, 2014

Webstar cable modem Scientific Atlanta for CoxIt can be hard to keep track of all the different options for cable and satellite providers, as they all have started to offer different channel lineups, features, and technology in an attempt to stand out.

Even My Younger Sister Could Afford the Protection of an ADT Alarm System

April 15th, 2014

I told my younger sister, who is in college, that she could afford a security system for her apartment. Mom and dad were worried about her being away at college. They did not really want her in a dorm room, but they were also worried about her being in an apartment. I told all three of them that she could have a basic adt alarm system for a very low cost. I saw them advertised for free if you pay a small fee for installation and sign up for monthly monitoring.

The basic system would be great for her apartment. It has a motion detector, and it also has a monitored smoke and carbon monoxide detector. Read the rest of this entry »

Started Gutting This Old Building

February 24th, 2015

It is going to be a long journey, but we have started out and we do not plan on turning back. At the moment we are looking to find a reliable aircon servicing company that is willing to do something which does not really seem to be all that practical at first glance. Of course it is going to be tough to find some guy who will want to do what needs to be done at a price which I am going to be able to stand and so I am sort of thinking that I might have to look for a way to cut corners where we are able to do it.Obviously there are things you can try to skate by on and there are other things that you have to bite the bullet on and accept that they are going to be expensive.

There’s Nothing Wrong with Looking Good

January 28th, 2015

It’s all because of Somatodrol that I am where I am today. I heard about this supplement from a friend of mine who goes to the gym with me who knew that I had been struggling to gain definition. It seemed like no matter how hard I worked or pushed myself, how much I changed my diet, I was never going to be have the definition that I really craved. I know it sounds very shallow but I want to look like those Calvin Klein models with the perfect abs and the V-cut shape to their hips. I want that more than anything.

Why do I want this? It’s simple; women. Read the rest of this entry »

Started Going to the Gym

Increase Testosterone Levels TestabolicI am not really sure that I like some of the dudes that I am meeting, but I have been getting in the gym a lot more of late. I decided that I was going to put a bit of effort in it at the start of the year. It was my New Year’s resolution and of course I started out slowly. I did not like the first place I went. There were a bunch of guys who would talk about stuff like advanced test o boost, which is some stuff which is supposed to boost your testosterone and that in turn is supposed to make you stronger. I was not sure what those guys were talking about to start out.

The Studio Opens Up Next Week

April 18th, 2014

I am going to be doing a lot of running around soon, but I have already gotten a start on the internet marketing and the social media marketing plan that I have for my new Studio. It is a solo effort, and I am going to hope that works better than partnering with Eve did. I already found a place to buy instagram likes as I am going to launch a huge instagram site containing a nearly complete archive of my favorite works. It is not like I am going to be posting all the stuff that I think is awful, or even stuff that I think is mediocre, but it is a huge site. I am not one of the people who will go do a wedding and then come back with very few shots. I always take hundreds of photos, some of them rather irrelevant to the proceedings. It is not hard to store it all now, with large format USB drives and computers.

They Are an Employee, Remember That

January 31st, 2014

When looking for a personal trainer in manchester you have to keep a few things in mind, the first is that you should not pick a trainer that you are physically attracted to. This can get in the way of work and it helps nobody at all. You should definitely pick a good trainer and if they happen to be attractive that is not a problem but if you go out with the sole intention of hiring someone because they are handsome than you are going to be in for a rough time. After you pick your trainer it is important to listen to them. Do not pretend or have illusions that you know more than your trainer because lets face it.

Where Can I Find a Quality Lawyer?

January 25th, 2014

All posts by this author ยปMy brother and I went into business together and apparently things did not turn out well. We had a great idea about opening a restaurant that had a Western theme, but that did not sit too well with the fine residents of New York. Now we have to find a ny bankruptcy lawyer to get us out of this mess. Most of the equipment we have is rented and we got lots of credit extended in order to be able to open up when we did. I guess we should have listened to out father when he told us that we should save a bit more money before starting this business, but we were bullheaded and somehow convinced that we knew better than he does.
