Developing applications for mobile devices is not exactly a walk in the park these days. There is a diverse variety of considerations that need to be taken into consideration before you simply throw an app up into the Google Play Store and call it done. With the way we are experiences the multitude of environments across a huge number of mobile and tablet devices, it becomes important for every application to be able to operate on each and every single one of them. I found that the company Massive Infinity is one of the best at being able to provide this service.
Having an application is like the new method when it comes to developing a website. A website isn’t exactly necessary any longer. Continue reading How We Interact with Unique Data
I was upset when I found out that the person who had hit my husband’s car and caused him a lot of pain was texting while he was driving. It was for a commercial vehicle too, which made it even worse because they are supposed to be professionally trained drivers. My husband nearly lost his life because of this, and I had a very hard time understanding how someone could be so careless. Even worse, there was no remorse shown. I knew that we needed to find an auto accident attorney in Sacramento who would take on our case because we definitely needed someone who knew a lot more about the law than we did. Continue reading Texting and Driving Can Ruin Lives
Our furnace started to whistle. Not a tune, but just a steady whistle when the blower came on. It kind of wavered in pitch a bit, but it was not going to win any contests for being a catchy tune. It was rather quite annoying. We could hear it all over the house, but it was louder in the bathroom downstairs. I called a Sacramento HVAC specialist to come out and take a look. We had not been keeping up with our annual furnace cleanings and inspections. I have been keeping the filters changed and the electrostatic filter clean. It sounded like the whistling was in the ductwork. Continue reading Stuck Damper Made Our HVAC System Start Whistling a Tune
When I was confused about which electricity company to use for my new home in Texas, a good friend of mine who lives there sent me a link. It was actually what I needed, but I had no idea that something like it existed. The thing about Texas is that it is deregulated when it comes to energy providers, so anyone who needs to get electricity into their house actually has a wide variety of choices. Sometimes, that is a good thing, but I was overwhelmed with it until my friend shared that website link with me.
When I went there, it was organized perfectly. All I had to do was put my zip code in so the site could list the companies that are able to service my area. Even though we are deregulated here in Texas, not every company that provides energy is able to serve every community. After I put my location information in, I was given access to the different companies that do provide energy to my neighborhood. I was able to get a wealth of information from each of them too, just from this site. Continue reading Signing Up with the Right Energy Provider
Earlier in the year, I came up with some plans to build a new shed after my old one fell apart. The shed had become rusty and once the roof caved in due to plant debris, the whole thing started to collapse. Initially I was just going to buy a shed from the store and put it together, but the prices were too expensive. After making the plans, I looked at the scrap metal prices and bought some pieces in the dimensions I needed to build the shed. The shed is mostly made of metal, but it features a wooden base held in place by concrete, along with wooden frames for support.
Putting together the shed was a pretty easy job. I had all of the wood pre-cut at the hardware store, so I didn’t have to worry about dealing with any heavy and expensive saws. Continue reading A Shed Made of Scrap Metal
I have a special SUV I use as a geologist. I work for energy exploration companies as a subcontractor. Therefore, I provide my own equipment. I can be out in the middle of nowhere for days in my SUV. It even has an elevated platform I can set up a tent on. In order to make it perform like I want in the field, I use VagCom OBD and ECU software along with a fully functional connection cable to adjust engine and transmission performance. I need to have one set of parameters for driving on the paved roads, and another set for when I am off road. This is especially true if I am in very high elevations.
I just have the software on my laptop, and I make the adjustments as they are needed. I have learned a lot about vehicles since I was a kid. I use the knowledge to get me and my vehicle into places other geologists just fly over or look at satellite images to make decisions. Continue reading Taking Control of My Vehicle’s OBD and ECU to Tweak Field Performance
It was shocking to me to see that my marriage was falling apart. My husband and I had been so in love prior to the two of us having three children together. At some point, he began withdrawing from me and would not talk to me when I tried to understand what was going on. He was spending a lot of time chatting to a variety of people online. But with a password on his account, I couldn’t look. I found a Kik spy program that helped me to get around it. It was the only way that I could figure out what on earth was happening.
My hubby and I spent so much time with one another over the years before we had any children. But as everyone knows, having children can take up all of your time. Continue reading I Used an App That Really Helped Me Fix My Marriage
Once I had a bad dream about being bitten by a snake and told my grandmother about it. My grandmother believes in all kinds of superstition and supernatural things, so when I told her about the dream, she started freaking out. She told me that I should get psychic tarot card readings as soon as possible, because the dream might mean something bad is going to happen to me in the future. Once in a while my grandmother will visit a psychic and swears by it. If I didn’t get a tarot card reading, my grandmother would just keep nagging me about it until I finally went to see a psychic.
The tarot card reader’s place looked nothing like what I expected it to look. Having seen various movies and television shows, I expected to see a room that looked like it hadn’t been updated since the 70s, but this place was fairly modern. The card reader greeted me and pulled out a deck of cards to start the reading. Continue reading Evil Lurks Around the Corner
I have not ever been in charge of a shop before and I am learning a lot the hard way. My boss shows up once a week, which is obviously to look over my shoulder. He fixed me up with something called a paystub maker because we have a rather specific need for it with a new employer. He is here on a visa which allows him to work under specific conditions. I can not really explain it and I honestly do not really care all that much about it to be perfectly honest. If he needs to have a pay stub, then we can find a way to get that done. However I have a lot of things which are a lot more important for me to deal with. Obviously we use direct deposit and the company has as long as I have worked here has done this. I love it and I always have, there is not any real purpose to having to spend half an hour of your time in a bank cashing a pay check. Continue reading The New Shop is About to Open
We closed in a concrete porch. It was a concrete pad that had a footer and block foundation. The concrete pad was in contact with the ground. The walls and new roof were put up, and electrical outlets were installed. The windows were put in before the outlets. Then insulation was put in and drywall hung. The interior flooring and trim work was last. We needed a vapor barrier down on the concrete and a foam underlayment on top of that. The floor had to be leveled with floor leveler in a couple of spots. We started with an even and dry surface. Continue reading New Construction Materials Make for Great Hardwood Flooring Options
I was doing the usual round of auditions last week and I actually got a part, but it is not really going to be practical. I do not understand why they really had a try out down here. The work is for a Japanese drama, which would quite obviously usually involve working in Japan. However this episode is being filmed here, but not here in Southern California. Instead it is being filmed in Las Vegas. They are not offering to pay for any of the expenses however. Of course I am not really a full time actor. I do it when I am able to get work and when I have to get paid I work at a restaurant as a chef. Continue reading Just Got Offered a Job I Don’t Want
When I have complained about my eyelashes to friends before, some thought that it was a really silly complaint. A few of them did get it, but I still stopped talking about it. I know that there is world hunger and war going on, but my eyelashes were making me feel really self conscious about myself. While I would take this over a tragedy in my life, it was still something that bothered me a lot. One of my friends told me not long ago about an eyelashes extension procedure that her cousin had got, and she said that it was definitely something that I should look into.
She got the website information for me, and I must have thanked her two dozen times since then. I honestly was not sure what to expect before I looked at it. I was not sure if it was going to be high quality fake eyelashes or something more tasteful. The part of the site that I really liked was that I was able to see pictures where I could actually see the difference that the procedure makes for certain people. Continue reading I Look So Much Better with New Eyelashes
I was not surprised to find out that the lot my boss had just purchased needed a lot of work. He just wanted a large space where he could build his offices and warehouse, which is exactly what he did. When he was done though, even he had to admit that it looked really bland. He knew that first impressions matter, so he asked me to contact a tree service in Nassau County to plant some trees around the buildings and along the driveway. I was really happy that he was going to contract this out, because something of this scale is best left to the professionals. Continue reading My Boss Wanted to Plant Some Trees
Have you ever walked into your house, and the lights start to flicker and you get that weird feeling like you’re being watched? Well I had that feeling a week ago, and immediately wanted to get out of there. My husband laughed at me, and told me to find an electrician in Passaic County NJ, but I was certain that there was some kind of entity in my house.
It got more strange as the week went on, not only the lights flickering anymore. The televisions were turning themselves on and off, and my work computer would restart itself when I randomly looked at it. I was getting more and more scared with every passing minute of being in that house, and my husband was ready to put me in the loony bin.
If I were in his position, I probably would have thought I was crazy too. He never witnessed any of this, so he thought my head was just playing tricks with me or something. Continue reading Could It Really Be Haunted?
The boss and I did an inspection yesterday and started to think about how logical it is going to be to work on this brownstone that he wants to buy. Of course the building is really pretty old and the last owner has not been doing very much to keep it up. I spent the day with this guy I know who provides hvac services in NYC and he gave me a quote that makes a bit of sense for us, although it is sort of on the margins of what we were hoping. Obviously any time you get a quote on a job you are going to want to have it be less, but this is something that can be worked around. You just have to accept that the other guy needs to make money or it does not make any sense for him to work for you. We are certainly going in this with the intent of making a profit for ourselves.
I am probably going to get a place set up where I can lay down and sleep. Continue reading Started on a New Project
