I have just moved to Ohio after I found a job with a company sited on the Maumee river near Perrysburg, OH. It is a good deal for me, especially since I had been working at a job that really was not a good match for my computer science degree. I have been really busy […]
Alamo Heights is inside San Antonio. I have always liked it there, and i was wondering if my wife and I could find a nice place to live there. We started to look for apartments in Alamo Heights San Antonio to lease. We found a nice complex of apartments that has a lot going for it. As soon as I was looking at the property, I saw an area that was obviously a dog park. We knew they allowed you to have a dog, but I did not know they had an outdoor area for our dog to exercise and play. The area was perfect for our pooch. There were things for her to sniff and do.
Our apartment search directly involved finding a place that was pet-friendly. There was no way we were giving up our dog, Sadie. She has been with us for a year, and she is the best. We think of her the same as if she were a human child. She goes everywhere with us. She is actually right here as I type this. I could not imagine having to give her up to find a place to live. We would live in our car if we could not a find a place that would let us bring our Sadie. I am very happy that more and more apartments are pet-friendly in the San Antonio area. I think landlords across the country are catching on.
This is a really nice apartment too. The kitchen has granite countertops and all new appliances. We have hardwood floors in the apartment, and there is more than enough closet space. These closets are really big. We can store all of our clothes, hobby and sports equipment and everything else. We actually have enough room now for all of our towels and linens. I am very impressed. Plus, the apartment has a fireplace. Outside they have a pool with cabanas, and there is a fitness center on site too.
Of course the reason that I have this job is really the fact that I have a ten year old Ford pick up truck. My uncle works for a company that does all sorts of things that involve Denver luxury real estate. They manage expensive rental property and they sell nice houses. In fact they pay me to do all sorts of things, but the main idea is that I do stuff so that people who know what they are doing can do what they are supposed to do. So if they need a bunch of flowers and stuff like that, then they send me to go get it. In fact they have me help out a lot of the time, but I am more of a beast of burden than a worker it would seem. They are pretty happy to let me do all of the lifting and carrying, but that does not bother me at all. At least I just tell myself that it is a good way to get more exercise.
Obviously this is just a way to pick up some money before I go to college next year. I have the truck and I am going to need to have a place to stay when I get to Boulder. At first I am going to be living in the dorms, but that is not going to be a permanent thing. In fact I am not so sure that I am going to like that at all. It is going to be something where you are stuck with whatever guy they pair you up with and I have heard stories that give you pause. You go to your new dorm room and you find out that the other guy is a complete psycho for example, but you are supposed to sleep soundly.
When I first started looking at one bedroom apartments in Tallahassee, I really had no idea what I wanted. I just knew that I wanted to find a nice neighborhood where I would be able to relax after a long day at work. I had never lived on my own before, but I already knew that I wanted to have an apartment. I just like everything that usually comes with them. That is why I looked at the amenities at the complex that was closest to my work first. I was happy to see that they have a fitness gym there as well as a swimming pool and clubhouse.
The apartment amenities are really nice too. Each one has a washer and dryer in it, and there is a dishwasher, fridge and other appliances too. Now that I knew I liked what they have for everyone there, I wanted to look at the floor plans for the apartments. There were two that I looked at. I did like the first one, which is the Capital.It has one bedroom and one bath, plus a nice sized living room. I decided to look at the second one, the Deluxe Governor, before making my decision though.
It is a good thing that I did this because I ended up liking the second one so much better. It is a lot bigger, and the floor plan is just so much nicer. There is a nice balcony right off the living room, and I liked that I do not have to walk through my closet to get to the bathroom. My bedroom is my sanctuary, and I did not want any guests to have to go through both my bedroom as well as my closet just to use the bathroom. With the bigger apartment, I am able to have everything I want!
The only thing wrong with this job is that it is on the exact opposite side of the Boston Metro area from where I live now. That really is not that big of a deal to me though, because I am not really in love with the place where I live, I could give it up for a lot less cause than this. So I have started to look for apartments for rent in Revere MA. It is going to have to be a lot better than this place, which is really full of nutty characters who like to stay up late at night banging on pots and pans and playing loud music. I do not know what it is all about and I am not sure I want to know, but apparently there is some sort of feud going on. One of them kept someone else up late at night and they called the police on them. Instead of being civil about it, they declared war and it has been going on for about a month.
At any rate I am looking for a place that is as close as possible to my new job. I have to think about the cost obviously, but I am willing to pay a bit more if the place is really close to the Analog Devices facility where I am going to be working. In fact I would love it if I could ride my bike when the weather is good. I love to get a bit of exercise and of course my car is not really that awesome. It needs to be replaced, but I could keep it a lot longer if I were using it a lot less. Like anything else it all has to make sense in the big picture.
When I ask the kids what they want for holiday gifts, it is all tech stuff. Doesn’t anyone want gifts that do not plug in anymore? I am just as guilty as they are, because I have a certain tablet computer that I am really wanting. Mine is so old and running so slow. Plus, […]
A man who was skilled 3D modeling once made a model of a gun that could be printed out using a 3D printer and assembled with a metal firing pin made from a regular nail that you can buy at a hardware store. The model was on the man’s website for a couple of days, until the government made him take it down. They feared that letting people have access to 3D printed guns would lead to a rise in violent crimes. Many people who had already downloaded the model uploaded it on Piratebay for everyone who missed it to download it.
Much to the surprise of no one, the 3D model for the gun being available to the public didn’t cause a rise in violent crimes, because no one used the printed gun for any violent crimes. The gun had a fatal flaw that prevented it from being completely useful. The plastic that the gun was made out of could only withstand a certain amount of pressure from each time a bullet is fired. Eventually, the plastic disintegrates when it can’t take anymore. This was demonstrated on a video that was made by the man who created the 3D model.
There weren’t even any cases where people used the printed gun to rob someone at gunpoint. People became afraid of a scenario that didn’t actually happen. I can see where they would get the idea that someone might print their own gun for violence, but it’s not worth the trouble. You would have to buy a 3D printer or build one, which costs anywhere from $500 to $1000. Then you would have to print the gun, assemble it, and keep printing guns when they break. You would also have to buy ammo, which can’t be done without a registered firearm in a lot of cases. Even a criminal would find it cheaper to get a reliable, metal gun.
Anyone who has spent a significant amount of time on the internet has probably heard of The Pirate Bay. In fact, even some people who do not use the internet have heard about it through the news or other sources. The bottom line is that the website is a huge part of modern day technology, whether people want to acknowledge it or not. Of course there is tons of debate over the legality of it, but ultimately it simply serves as a place that allows users to trade files. Files that break copyright may not be legal to share in some countries, but that does not seem to be stopping anything.
It is surprising, as many other attempts at peer to peer services have been shut down once reaching this level of popularity. The Pirate Bay has indeed seen administrators and staff taken to court, but they continue to fight and show no signs of giving in. Unlike predecessors such as Napster or Kazaa, companies from the music industry and other places have not been able to stop these guys from continuing their work. They have actually been running the site for almost 10 years now, continuing to advance the technology and security behind it.
This is a large part of the reason they are still running, as their smart use of technology has turned the website into something akin to the hydras seen in mythology. This is because the servers are not all hosted in one location and the website is made so that it can be quickly redeployed. This results in an awkward situation for authorities, as they can take down a hosting server but the website will remain active. Combine this with the fact that it is free to use and does not require users to register, and it is very hard to do anything about stopping them.
