I was having some trouble with my computer. Well, it was not actually everything with my computer, but there were some things that just were not working right. I was able to play my games without any problems, but my browsers were not cooperating with me very well. I knew that it had to be a driver issue, but I am not a tech person at all so I had no idea what to even do to fix this. I did a search online though, and that is how I found the http://techthirty.org website.
I knew that I needed to find something to try and fix this, because I just did not have the money to go out and buy a new computer. I had called to see how much it would cost to have someone come look at it, and the price was ridiculous. Read more »

My daughter got a virus on her computer, and usually I can get rid of them for her when this happens. But this time around something is different and I am not having any luck getting rid of the virus. I am not sure why it is so tenacious, but regardless of what i have tried, it has not gone away. I am looking to find a Google redirect virus removal tutorial, or otherwise some sort of software that will get rid of it for me.
Of course, I have anti-virus software installed on my daughter’s computer – I would be stupid not to- but it is not even finding the virus, much less getting rid of it. My daughter is very frustrated with the fact that the virus is still on her computer, and she seems to think that I am never going to get rid of it. She is kind of dramatic when it comes to this sort of thing, but she is only 6 years old, so I try to cut her some slack. But for example, if she loses something, often times, she will start screaming, “It’s gone forever.”
Which makes no sense at all, and I have no idea why she started thinking such things. Anyway, of course I can get rid of the virus by reformatting the computer, but I definitely do not want to have to do that if I can avoid it. A lot of the files on her computer are not backed up, so it would have to be a last resort if I were to reformat. However, there has to be some way to get rid of it without going to such extreme lengths, I just have to figure out what that solution is, so that I can get rid of it.

I wanted to order some custom USB flash drives for my company, but I was not sure where to get them from. I had looked at a local store where I normally get all my printing done, figuring they would be able to do this as well. It is a service that they do not offer though. I went online, hoping to be able to find a company that would be able to create what I had in mind. I just wanted a basic USB drive that I could order in various colors as well as have my business logo on it.
I found a company that allows customers to custom design USB drives however they want, but that was not even the best part. I had said that I wanted a basic USB drive, but this company had so many different kinds. They had the standard small rectangular ones that most stores sell, but they also had some really cute shapes that I liked. They have ones designed like cars, people, cameras, and so much more.

I have started to work on my holiday planning, both at the office and at home. For the company we have been thinking about how to get a Christmas card together. It is not that complicated really, but you have to figure out how to do it well. We already hired a good photographer to make the Christmas picture. We did it on a warm sunny day in September, which made it uncomfortable for me in the Santa suit. I have been looking for a company that does online postcard printing now. The big thing is quality in our opinion. We want to make the best impression that we can, which is why we are going to go to a professional print shop and not try to do something cheap that is not going to be very impressive. Read more »

My boss gave me his old server. I had wanted one for the longest time, but simply could not justify the cost on my very limited budget. He said for someone like me; however, that I really should have just found out which places offer the best VPS instead, rather than handling it in my own house. He said that it is not as easy as I was making it out by having one in my own home.
I guess that I was being headstrong, because I did not want to believe what my boss was saying. It seemed like it would be a pretty simple thing to me. But the first thing that I ran into is that, after placing the server in my home office, the amount of heat the machine generated was very high. I have an old window air conditioning unit, so I brought that into my office to cool the room down. Read more »
