Stream Energy is the Best Choice

I had been living in an apartment with two friends when I decided that I was going to move to my own home. I was making enough money to finally have what I wanted, and I found the perfect little house. The utilities were easy to get ready, but I wasn’t sure which energy source I was going to use. I knew that I could have my choice of any that serve the area, but my problem was that I did not know very much about any of them. Thankfully, I was able to find an online resource that was able to guide me in this energy choice I had to make.

The site had all of the different energy companies in the area. I was actually surprised at the number of different companies. Continue Reading →

Shakeology for Meal Replacement and Better Health

Shakeology Comparison Chart (click to enlarge)My eating habits are pretty awful at the moment, and I am trying to figure out a way to avoid junk food. I need to stop going to the grocery store, because even when I go to the grocery store with the agenda of buying healthy food, I end up seeing junk food and putting some of it in the cart. I am reading this comprehensive Shakeology review right now to see if Shakeology is going to be a good way for me to start to lose some weight and replace some of the meals that I eat, which would probably end up being unhealthy, with a more healthy alternative.

There are so many different types of junk food that it is hard for me to eliminate them all. Continue Reading →

Redoing Grandma’s Bathroom to Make It Safer

Grandma was used to her tub, but she was getting older. She did not want one of those walk-in tubs. She said it would make her bathroom look like a place for a old person. I did not mention the obvious in that she is old. However, I did suggest a shower that had no step up and had hand rails. Grandma said she did not like her old closed in shower with the frosted door. She wanted something that was more open and had clear glass. A place that does shower doors in Union County NJ was able to meet all of her needs.

Her new shower goes all the way to the floor. The floor at the door is a narrow metal strip that is a drain. She can step on it or over it. It is smooth and level with the floor surface. It keeps water from running out into the rest of the bathroom and eliminates the step up that most showers have. Continue Reading →

How Choosing Hosting VPS Instead of Dedicated Private Servers Can Save You Money

Some individuals and a lot of start-up businesses need good hosting VPS help. Most people are not aware of what a VPS is. Computers are a major investment for any business. A business that has outgrown the capacity of a few desktops and laptops to serve their needs will need to have full access to computer servers that can be accessed from anywhere. This is true because most businesses today have people spread out all over the place. A VPS is a Virtual Private Server, and they are actually simple to understand.

A VPS is a powerful computer. It looks like a rectangular box, and it slides into a rack system in a server center somewhere. The wires coming out of the back connect it to the backbone of the Internet through secure high speed data connections. A rack has a bunch of VPS computers in it, and a room may be filled with racks. Now what makes a VPS unique is that the hard drive and circuitry allow multiple instances of the operating system to be running at once. Each instance is isolated from the rest. This is what makes it a virtual private server rather than a dedicated one. It is also what makes them cost-effective for businesses. Continue Reading →

Excellent Brooklyn Based Roofer for Your Home

The roof is what protects you from whatever falls from the skies. When it is in Brooklyn, it can be snow, rain or sunlight depending on the time of the year. So, you must have an excellent roof over your home to protect you as well as your family members from the forces of nature. Again, a quality roof can reduce your heating, air conditioning and electric bills. Poor ventilation can result in sky high electric, heating and air conditioning bills. An excellent roof installation in Brooklyn NY can avoid you many of these problems.

In most cases, home owners in Brooklyn will have to undertake routine repair work to rectify the problems that come up from time to time. Continue Reading →

Why I Switched to Direct TV

I am a couch potato. If given the choice between watching a movie at home or going out with friends to the local club, I almost always choose watching a movie. I also have a slew of television shows that I watch on a regular basis. There is no way I could ever watch all of them live, and that is why I have Direct TV. I did have a cable subscription up until a year ago, but it was rough for someone who likes to watch TV as much as I do.

I was only able to record two things at once on my cable receiver box, and sometimes there would be three or four of my favorite shows on at the same time. Continue Reading →

Direct Television for a Vacation Home

About a year ago, I purchased a second house to serve as a vacation house. It is located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and the reason that I purchased a house there, was to take advantage of the skiing opportunities that are present in that part of the country. Skiing as always been one of my passions, ever since I first learned how to ski, when I was just four years old. Anyway, I would like to get a Direct TV package for the vacation house, so that my family will be able to watch television, when they are on vacation at the cabin.

I am going to rent the cabin out to some of my friends at various times of the year. That way, I will be able to make some money off of it, and cover some of the expenses that are associated with owning a second house. Continue Reading →

Cheap Prices for Great Home Security

A few months ago, I purchased a new house, and it seems like it would be a good idea to protect my investment, and my family, of course, with a home security system of some sort. I have not had one before, but I realize that this new house is located in an area with a higher crime rate than were I previously lived. As such, I have been browsing this site,, that I found earlier when I was looking information about various home security systems, and their providers.

I want to get a security system that will afford me a lot of flexibility when it comes to monitoring my home, and making sure that it is safe. The area that i have moved to is not that bad, by any means, but the city that we now live in has a significantly higher crime rate than were we used to live, and I believe that, that is a cause for concern. I have always wanted to make sure that my family remains safe, but at my last house, it just did not seem necessary to have a security system. Continue Reading →

Texas is an Interesting State Politically

I have been down here in Texas for a couple of weeks and it is sort of weird the way things are different down here.

Some of them have been living in this area for generations and others have just come across the border.

Taking Control of the Vulnerability

As a victim of a home invasion I have come to realize that the entire night only occurred because I was lacking anything remotely resembling home security systems. After living through that horrible experience I have made the necessary steps to ensure that this will never happen again or, should it occur despite the layers of security I have enshrouded myself within, I will not be as helpless as I was that night. Anyone who has ever been through a home invasion can tell you first hand just how terrifying it is to wake up knowing someone has forced their way into your home with ill intent.

I remember lying in bed shocked that this could be happening to me. I didn’t have a weapon that I could reach to. I didn’t have a plan. I didn’t do anything but call the police as soon as I was able to gather my wits about me but even that wasn’t enough. They were quick with going through the home which lead them right to me.

iTexico Donates Funds Raised During Movember to a Charity in Mexico

After a successful charity fundraiser within the Mexican mobile development community, iTexico has donated all funds to local charities to help young people overcome their illness.

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 30, 2013

iTexico, an Austin based nearshore web and mobile app development company, has announced that they recently donated all funds raised in November to a local charity center in Guadalajara, Mexico. iTexico is supported by Dawcons, a software development company located in Guadalajara, Mexico. During November 2013, both tech companies joined forces to reach the mobile app developer ecosystem in the US and Mexico to raise funds for charity and create awareness for health care issues.

During the month of November, iTexico joined the Movember campaign with a little twist to make it its own. Because of the lack of official presence of Movember in Mexico, the team at iTexico decided to make their own campaign. “We were looking to maintain the Movember ideology present at all time while applying some of our own personality and reaching out to the mobile developer community to ignite a passionate response to help people. We knew that developers are kind at heart and we just needed to find the right way to ask for their help in making people’s lives better. The response was marvellous and we are very proud of our community,” said Anurag Kumar, CEO of iTexico.

The dynamic that took place on iTexico’s Facebook page, consisted of asking for volunteers, members of iTexico and Dawcons, to clean shave their beards and grow a new moustache. The before and after pictures of the volunteers were uploaded to the company’s Facebook page communicating that for every like on the members photos, the company would donate around a dollar in Mexican currency ($ 10 Mexican pesos) to a local charity.

After a full month of activity on iTexico’s social networks, the results were in and the general response for the Movember campaign was very satisfactory with a very active response from the mobile development community. At the end of the month, the amounts of likes gathered from web and mobile app developers surpassed was just shy of 2700.

“The support of the people was amazing. We received a lot of likes in the first couple of pictures and also the links that we sent about important facts for men’s health had a good response. It’s incredible how people join forces for a greater cause and how much awareness we can help to create through fun dynamics like these,” said Guillermo Ortega, COO of iTexico.

“Our Movember campaign primarily aimed to support local charities in Guadalajara, Mexico, where the company’s nearshore delivery center is located and where it hosts more than 70 professionals in the areas of web and mobile UX/UI design, architecture, native and cross-platform development, testing and QA. Supporting a local charity was a core part of the campaign and the team worked hard to make this happen. Movember is about men’s health and mental care, but we wanted it to make it work on a local level and directly impact and improve people’s lives. So between the companies we looked up for a cause we could help with and found a great charity center,” said David Sandoval, Marketing Manager at iTexico.

iTexico and Dawcons helped a local charity center in Guadalajara called the Fray Antonio Alcalde Shelter and donated more than two thousand dollars which will go directly to the people in need.

José Trinidad, 42, needed help with medicines for his larynx tumor; Jesús Gudiño, 45 needed help for a treatment for his prostate cancer. Yolanda Pérez, who is only 19, was diagnosed with leukemia and needed to take very expensive shots every day. iTexico has already received letters of gratitude from the people they’ve helped through this initiative.

iTexico’s vast majority of young developers are men and that’s why the company was interested in participating in Movember.

“As we’ve said before, we have many mobile app development experts at our delivery center in Mexico and we’re always looking to provide them with the best health care benefits out there. Movember was a different way of showing our interest and help make a difference in someone’s life,” said Anurag Kumar, CEO of iTexico.

P2P and Video Streaming Services

Peer to peer file sharing systems, otherwise known as P2P (such as Isohunt), connect people directly together on the internet. Some systems are true networked systems, in that there is a central server which acts as a central point to which all traffic is directed then distributed to the clients. P2P file sharing software is mainly sourced from the Gnutella design, and most companies that offer such services look very much the same. However, some have extended this to offer the bells and whistles that set them apart, such as faster downloads and the ability to converse with those you are connected to. There are other benefits to be gained from these subscription sites such as connections to other P2P movie and games download sites.

Internet video streaming is similar to standard television broadcasting. Software is used to convert video and audio into a format that is suitable for delivery using a computer network. Television stations use special hardware to convert video and audio data into a format suitable for broadcasting. Special computer network transport protocols enable the delivery of multimedia content to the end user ( viewer ) versus using broadcast transmitters to send the video and audio content to individual television sets.

No broadcast license or technical certification is required for Internet streaming, unlike a standard television broadcast station. Standard television broadcast stations are required to have a broadcast license and certified broadcast engineers. The only requirements for Internet video streaming are: specialized data delivery server software, special audio and video encoding software and large amounts of bandwidth. Bandwidth is required for the delivery of the video and audio content to the end user. The formula for determining the amount of bandwidth required for video streaming is: Bandwidth required = data encoding speed x number of desired consecutive users.

I Feel Less Stress Thanks to My Stairwell and Roof Repairs

As the new owner of an apartment building, I have had a lot of learn when it comes to being a landlord. I really thought most of it would be easy, and it is true that it is not too hard to understand. But when you are one person doing the work on your own, it just takes a lot of time and money. The roof on my building clearly looks like it needs help, roof replacement in NYC might be the way to go. But between all the other things that I need to have done to the building, I wanted the chance to see if could at least do some or even all of the roofing work myself. After all, it did not seem like the roof was too bad.

We had some trouble with one of the stairwells in the building last week. One of the steps crumbled when I was walking down the stairs. I am so happy that it did not happen when one of my tenants was walking on it. Luckily, I have a buddy who has done repair work on stairs, and he came over, gave me a discounted quote and got right to work. By the time he was done, it looked great. He even checked all the other steps to make sure they were safe. Luckily, they were.

Grateful that I saved some money, I figured I better give up on trying to complete the roof work myself. If the roof leaked, causing water to get into an apartments on the second floor and any of the tenants items were ruined, I would have really unhappy people on my hands. I worried about the cost, though. I spent the morning calling around to get as many quotes as possible. I found a business just blocks away that offered me a super low price, and I asked them to come to do the work immediately. The roof is now as good as new.

I Needed a Higher Website Ranking

I used to have a decent ranking on search engines, but all of that changed when search engines redid their algorithms. I went from being in the first few pages to being buried so deep that there was no way anyone would find my site through a search engine search.

The WF is Warrior Forum, and getting people higher in search engine rankings is what they excel at.
