Starting early next year, an Internet service provider in my area will start enforcing a data cap on its users. Users will be given a limit of 150GB that they can use, and if they go over this limit, then they will be charged an extra $10 on their bill, with another $10 tacked on for every 50GB they use after that. Alternatively, they can pay an extra $50 each month to bypass the cap and have the unlimited access they used to have. I had this provider, and I used a “click here for Internet” ad to change this before I had to deal with the cap.
I watch a lot of streaming content on various websites and download a lot of video games, which usually have big file sizes. Read the rest of this entry »
I have been studying about the way that Electricity and other utilities are regulated in this country. Of course every one needs power and they want to get it at the lowest price possible. However in most states there is one company which has a local monopoly over the power grid. Here in North Carolina Duke Power has a deathgrip over most of the state. There is at least one other power company, Carolina Power and Light which has smaller territories in the mountains. I think Texas is the only state with an open market. At choosetexaspower.org you can go and read about the laws the. Read the rest of this entry »
Alternative energy is an energy source that is produced without consuming a product. The sun is dying slowly, but because it has a shelf life of several million years we can yet ignore this. Renewable energy is in vogue. Given the high oil prices, growing energy demand in Asia and the doubts about the security of energy supplies have contributed – the most recent example is the dispute between Russia and Ukraine over gas supplies. A comprehensive source of energy needs in the Americas only by wind, solar and hydroelectric power is difficult to imagine, but may in the not too distant future a reality. A key criterion is the constructive research, especially by the Federal Government.
A series of regulations, policies and laws around the world support the promotion of research and development of new energy sources. Read the rest of this entry »
When my husband got into an argument with a customer service rep for our electric company, I was just as upset as he was. He had simply called in to get some answers about a recent bill, and the person was extremely unprofessional. Since the questions were not answered to his satisfaction, he told her that we would look into the different energy providers in Texas and find a company that would be happy to do business with us. I went online that same day, prepared to look at the different websites of the energy providers in our area.
I did a quick search, and I was surprised to see that there is already a website that has all of the information for each of the providers in Texas. Even better, I was able to put in our zip code and get just the providers that service our area. Read the rest of this entry »
When I first heard the words “Virtual Private Server Hosting“, my eyes immediately glazed over and my mind went on auto pilot, as it often does when I encounter anything that I deem even remotely complicated or too technical. It wasn’t until I did a little research on the subject that I realized this is a very good thing and not too complicated to understand after all. The official definition for a virtual private server is: A virtual private server (VPS, also referred to as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) is a method of splitting a server. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system server can be independently rebooted.The practice of partitioning a single server so that it appears as multiple servers has long been common practice in mainframe computers but has seen a resurgence lately with the development of virtualization software and technologies for other architectures.
Let’s start with a simple break down of what that actually means. A private server is just that, private. It’s kind of like taking a taxi cab instead of a city bus. It’s a secure way to run programs live on the internet in a secure environment. Read the rest of this entry »
When I first moved into my house, my dad came over to make sure that everything was working properly. I am his only daughter, so I figured that he would end up doing that. I was also very thankful, because I really didn’t know how to do a lot of those things myself. He wanted to make sure that the air conditioning and furnace were working properly too, but the AC unit was not working as it should. He contacted a company that handles AC repair in Essex County NJ, one that he has used for his own AC unit at my folks’ house. Read the rest of this entry »
I knew that I had found the right VPS Windows hosting when I started reading about Winity. I had been looking for a company that provides this service, and everything I Read about Winity indicated that they are the ones. I really like their website a good bit because it answered all of the questions I had about them. It is obvious that they put customer service as well as satisfaction at the top of their priority list. While I was concerned about price, customer service was at the top of my priority list as well.
Pricing did come a close second though. I wanted a host that was not going to be more than what I could budget for this. I am just starting out in business, so my budget is tighter than most others. This is something that I absolutely needed though, and the price was well within my budgeted means. Read the rest of this entry »
There is no doubt that safety is important, as it is a fundamental part of living. Even before society formed, it was natural to find protection from potential predators or sources of harm. The bottom line is that while we may be able to fight back against many threats, avoiding them altogether is always preferable and sometimes even easier to implement. ADT home security understands this, which is why the protection starts with the fact that a simple ADT sticker or logo can scare off people who are thinking about trying to break in or rob your house.
Of course it is not going to perfectly repel everyone, as some people simply cannot be stopped from doing something silly. For those that do try to get in, the sensors and alarms will handle them by alerting the support center that is monitored by trained ADT staff 24/7. They know the best way to handle any problems, so can forward information to the appropriate authorities with reliable accuracy and efficiency. Read the rest of this entry »
I am going to do some home work before I start on the house. For now I am thinking that I might clear off a little part of the land and pave a little pad on which to park a camper trailer. That is not ideal, but a camper trailer is adequate for what I have in mind. I would have electricity hooked up to it and I could keep the beer cold and have a comfortable place to lay your head when you are not fishing. If you click here you can figure out which power companies are available in the place which you are looking for, but I am not really sure that any of them is going to be in a great big hurry to hook the power up here.
There are big high tension lines in the area, but this is on the opposite side of the lake from most of the places that have power. So it is not like they would run a line from a place that is across the street or next door. It is probably close to a quarter of a mile to the main road where there is a little country store. At any rate I need to get them to hook the power up, but there is not a lot in it for them. In fact I might be able to make do with other means if I needed to do it. For example you could get a natural gas tank and use that for heating, cooking and even running the appliances. I figure that I could get a small efficient refrigerator, the type that you get on a motor home. Those can be set up to run on what you have available and you can use it any way you like.
I’ve had the pleasure of being a Comcast Cable TV customer for a couple of years now and I have to say the number of complaints that I hear against the service seem kind of absurd to me. I’ve not yet had a single problem in my area – I don’t know if that is a reflection of Comcast itself or if the cable infrastructure here is just better than average, as I am sure that has a lot to do with the quality that people have. I do know that many cable lines are in dire need of servicing as a former employee of one of the cable providers.m
Now that I have your attention I hope you don’t mind that I use this moment to make a plea of empathy to you readers. When you call into tech support, please realize that those techs are not at fault for your loss of service or whatever the problem might be. Often it is hardware or something more physical in the lines, nodes or what have you. Read the rest of this entry »
Those interested in keeping up to date with the latest in technology have been waiting for fiber internet to come to their area. The process of getting it in your immediate area has taken quite a while but the payoff is worth it to many. This type of service is now locally available. It is in demand because it is thought of widely as the fastest internet connection available to consumers at this point. Now that fiber internet for tennessee is a reality, people can begin to sign up for installation.
As we become more reliant on technology, we have seen our need for a fast internet connection increase. It was acceptable before to have a DSL or a cable internet connection, anything beyond slow dial-up, and it was considered to be fast. Read the rest of this entry »
In fact I am living a bit Northeast of Birmingham in a suburb called Trussville. It is convenient to the job that I have been transferred to. Right now I am trying to get ready for to wife and kids, who really are not happy about leaving North Carolina. They were pretty happy living in Cary and Becky had a good job with the Wake County school system. Right now I am waiting on the guy with the trussville adt to set up the alarm in this big old house I bought. We still have to sell the house in North Carolina, but that is going to wait for the kids and Becky to finish the school year. We might even rent it out, because that would be rather easy it appears. In fact there might be a way that we could sell the land under the house and move the house to a new location.
That is because the place where we live now is becoming a commercial area and there is a huge amount of traffic on the street where we live. It is a rather large corner lot and so it would be ideal for something like aservice station or a little convenience store or perhaps a restaurant. We would definitely be willing to talk to anyone who wanted to use the land for whatever purpose. We just need to get the house sold, because we can not afford to own two houses. This one was very inexpensive for the size of it. At least it is a lot cheaper than a house like this would have been in Cary. I need to do some work to it, but it is not as though the place is going to fall down on top of me or anything.
- Suppose the surface (radius = r) of a cylindrical space station is rotating at 23.1 m/s to provide artificial gravity. What must be the value of r for the astronauts to weigh 1/4 of their earth weight?
Answer by Earth Man
Answer –> 217.6 m
v = 23.1 m/s
a = 2.4525 m/s^2 (25% of 9.81 m/s^2 Earth gravity)
Original equation is:
a = v^2 / r
Solve for r:
r = v^2 / a
r = (23.1 m/s)^2 / (2.4525 m/s^2)
r = (533.61 m^2/s^2) / (2.4525 m/s^2)
r = 217.6 m
- A conical paper cup is to have a height of 4 inches. What is the radius r of the cone that will result in a surface area of 6? in^2?
Answer by poornakumar b
2 ? r h = 6? in^2
& r = 4″.
h = 6 ? / (2 ?X4)
= 3/4 “.
- Please help. I’m trying to find a good quality r/c plane under $ 150. I do not know if I should buy a plane with a nitro engine or an electric engine. Thank you.
Answer by Jack
Ive always been a massive fan of nitro engines. but recently changed to electric.
its so much cheaper in the long run, there is no mess to clean up, no messing arround with engine problems which you will get from small r/c engines and its much safer. starting an engine is dangerious and ive know people to loose fingers from this. ive had a few close shaves myself.
As long as you have a decent charger you can charge a spare battery in the time it taks you to run the other flat, just wack it on a car battery.
Only downside is you dont get that awsome noise you get from nitro.
Hope this helps 😀
I was just killing time this morning working and playing the games a t this site called airplanegames365.com For the past couple of months I have been doing my best to get started on this side project, but a lot of other stuff keeps coming up. I just can not really figure out what is going to get in my way next it seems, but there is always some thing new that comes up. I have been trying to work on this at work, but of course no one there is interested in helping me and it is not going very smoothly to say the least. To this point I have only gotten a couple of the modules completed and none of the testing has been done yet. I am going to need to put together a team if I want it to work out, but they are not going to give me the resources that I need to get this done very well at all.
For example this this morning I had to deal with this problem cause by one of the programmers playing around on this program he was building. I was not aware of what he was up to and he ended up putting a bunch of code in my system without my knowledge. Of course it was just a bunch of garbage that got swallowed up in the code. It was not that big of a deal, but it took a whole for me to figure out what had happened Then I had to go back and undo the things that he had done.. Once we figured out what was going on we just deleted the problem and we were fine, but for a couple of hours we thought that there was something seriously wrong with our code.
I have a really bad headache right now, and I do not know what is up. It is strange, because I usually do not get headaches. Pretty much ever, unless I like actually physically get hit in the head with something, which has happened a few times in my life. Anyway, I need to focus and not let it distract me because I am trying to hire commercial roof repair in Essex county NJ to fix the roof on this building. It does not seem like it would be that big of a fix. If I knew anything about fixing anything, and I do mean anything, then I might try to fix it myself.
I do not like the quotes that I have been getting thus far though, and so I have been compelled to continue to shop around and call different companies, to see if they can give me a quote that I like better. I don't know if it will happen, but I guess we will wait and find out. I am not sure how this is going to all pan out. I hope that it works out in my favor. But I do not want to bet on that, and be wrong. I always feel foolish when I am wrong about stuff.
After that, I am going to go on lunch break and go pick up some cheap fast food from around the corner. It is cheap but delicious. It is a local chain and probably the best fast food restaurant that I have ever been to in my life. I mean they have quesadillas and corndogs as side items. It is just nuts. But I guess I have got off track. Need to get back to accomplishing things at my job, so boss doesn't yell at me.Study Far More
