Yeah today was busy, busy with real work and side business, on top of that watching after my 3 years old. Man! talking about killing brain cells doing multi tasks. Anyhow I just sold a bunch of high tech items I bought through promotional rebate programs on techbargains website alert features, I set up the alert so that any items have good deal and rebate mail in rebate or so MIR, it will alert me and I will go in the site and look to see if it’s a hot seller on ebay and I buy it, then submit rebate and post ebay for sell. It’s a lot of fun and excitement plus adding a few dollars to my pocket but it’s a wash at the end of the month, because I use that money for gas and stuff plus maintaining my home server website 🙂 it’s all good. So far I have no problem with ebay, it’s also great because I get ebay ebucks and sometime good one if I tried like netflix, they will give me $15 ebucks for just trying out netflix 🙂
The latest news I just read. On March 30th NASA scientist predict an asteroids about the size of a private jet will fly by near earth, closer to the moon to be exact, and it will miss earth by April 1st 2012. It’s no prank although it’s April fools, it did flew by earth “The asteroid 2012 EG5 was closer than the moon when it flew by Earth at 5:32 a.m. EDT (0932 GMT)” This indicate and proof that we can only predict asteroids this size hitting earth just only 3 days? what if it heading towards earth and we can predict 3 days ahead of time? This is scary isn’t it? Although it’s the size of a private jet airplane but the damage could be global. I’m not a scientist, but aren’t there a lot more asteroids out there that are flying all over the place in all directions, and if we cannot predict it early enough to prepare or if the asteroids is to big prepare for survival, what will we do? what’s up with the 5 stars laser nuclear gun that we have in space? do we really have it? and has it been tested proving that it will work destroying any asteroids heading towards earth? and a more scary questions, are those asteroids like the one just flew by, asteroids? or is it a spaceship of some sort alien spacecraft in disguise?
Well, I bought a laptop from ebay auction months ago, for less than $70, it’s a duo core, compaq also known as HP nc6400, it was listed as it is broken missing power adapter, no battery, no hard drive, but it did turn on and goes into bios but has problem displaying, but I bid for it anyways and won. So it’s been sitting for a while til I got the adapter and and hard drive total cost $20. I’ve been trying to get it work, with ubuntu, winxp, windows vista and windows 7, but no luck, sometime success install but freezed, sometime it won’t boot at all or stuck somewhere during installation. I thought the video card is the problem or motherboard, but I tried one last time with a different older operating system windows 98se, and this time I got different error message, it said something about the RAM memory, so I took one stick of RAM out and install win98se look like it work, and so I installed windows 7 and it work also, whoo hooo!!!!!!!! the art of trial and error 🙂
Well just yesterday I got the netflix movies streaming, and it’s been working well so far, no major problem so far. I use my dedicated movies laptop which have an HDMI port connect to HDMI LCD TV for awesome high resolution, it’s been working great! streaming via WIFI, I’m not sure if it’s HD quality but it does look crisp clear like HD on all of the movies. No lagging, do distortion, it uses Silverlight similar to flash, when movie play, I noticed my laptop task manager showing the CPU and RAM working harder up to 50% which I think is still ok. My oldest daughter 1st grade can use it no problem, she select the children sections and watch any movies from there. One thing I need to point out is, there got to be an area where we can select or block X-Rated movies or movies that have nudity and a lot of foul language cussing so that our youngster children can’t access it, unless people don’t care 🙂 well I do! 🙂
Not!!!!!!! LOL, well they got the winning # announced and waiting for the winning to shows up. Well I’m not even gonna check mine 🙂 But – I did win something today, kind of, I received like a dozen rebates combination of checks and prepaid credit cards, ranging from $20 to $55, not bad huh! rebates really work, just need to be patient and do proper follow up, except for that one company Xigmatek, never buy anything from them, they’re crooks taking your hard earning money and run away, Xigmatek very bad business doesn’t care about their customer and you’re taking risk on their products, get it from somewhere else. Anyhow – Good luck whoever the lotter winner is, the # are: The winning numbers for the largest lottery jackpot in world history — a Mega Millions prize that hit $640 million — were 46, 23, 38, 4, 2; mega ball was 23, lottery officials said late Friday. So Who’s the winner, please give some 🙂 Thanks!!!!!!!!
I did it! all this time I’ve been wondering if I should toss my cable TV and get netflix since I already have super fast internet. Well – today I did just that, although I haven’t cancel basic cable TV yet, but I went ahead and took advantage of the $15 ebay ebucks if I give netflix a try, which I did, I signed up 1 month free trial if I decided to keep it, the charge will be $7.99. If don’t want to continue then simply cancel, and I still get the $15 ebay ebucks I can use to buy stuff on ebay which I bought stuff on ebay anyways :). I gave netflix a try – The process was simple, easier than I thought it would be, easier than signing up for a free email from yahoo or gmail. – The process was simply login name password, billing information, I use paypal so it’s uper fast process. The account was activated immediately and I watch it immediately streaming through silverlight similar to flash plugin, it’s not bad at all, it cannot beat Bluray or HD, but it’s enough to say worth the $7.99 a month, you can browse and queue the movies play it anytime anywhere where there is internet. Good thing I have a lot of laptop sitting around which I turn into media player and it work out great! thumbs up for Netflix streaming movies shows … I don’t think we can share the account, only 1 stream per account sign in, so I guess if you play in your house and decide to give to your friends house they wouldn’t be able to play, and another thing, I don’t hacked or cracked account will work well either, because while watching it, your stream can get cut off and that will upset you even more or embarassing yourself using a hacked cracked account, so don’t do it, $7.99 isn’t much a month of entertainment.
I’ve been working for a large corporation for a very long time. I’ve many different bosses over the years, one go another came, one move up another one replaced. What I can say is I rather work with nicer boss a friendly environment with low pay than a mean boss and unfriendly environment with big pay 🙂 Well sometime it’s true, but there are times that ones would need extra money and will work under any condition :). It’s one of those reason where many people would like to start their own business, for back. However starting your own business can be painful as well in the first few steps, the success rate for entrepreneur is very low. Most people would rather work the 8hours shift then go home. However there are some people get paid hourly and don’t mind the overtime more money. There are people that work as salary no matter how much they work 8 hours 12 hours day 🙂 . OK back to the main topics: “What is the role and responsibilities of a manager or boss?”
- Supervise and manage the overall performance of staff in the department.
- Analyzing, reporting, giving recommendations and developing strategies on how to improve quality and quantity.
- Achieve business and organization goals, visions and objectives.
- Involved in employee selection, career development, succession planning and periodic training.
- Working out compensations and rewards.
- Responsible for the growth and increase in the organizations’ finances and earnings.
- Identifying problems, creating choices and providing alternatives courses of actions.
I just saw a few documentary in regards to life in other planets and space travels. My personal opinions – first Space travel exploration, possible? I say YES – Because look back at few hundreds years ago, it took human many months to a year to travel around the world, but then today, it took us hours, well maybe average 10hours to travel around earth with the faster airplane, there could be faster plane today though – So base on this fact, I say we can development light speed spaceship or faster than light speed, sometime near the future, even better we might be able to develop fold space technology or create a black hole that we can control, I’m not optimistic about it, I think we can, it’s a matter of time and resources and off course financial. In regards to life in other planets, off course, why not? – I believe Earth isn’t the only planet that support lives, there are many other planets out there have similar environment like Earth, the basic necessity for lives, water, oxygen and light – On the other hand, we defined life as such but what about Alien, how do they define life? How do we know that Alien are not living among us now? maybe life are smaller than we thought, such as organism, and ghost spirit, things that we cannot see but can feel, what if we are Alien? How do we know that we’re not? What if they’re invisible? so many questions with no answer.
Not too many rebates items mail in rebates or so call MIR offers checks now a day, they sends you a credit card prepaid with certain amount, which is pretty hard to use. Thanks to Mcafee some items they still offer a rebate checks I think it’s awesome, all I need to do is deposit to my bank and use it any way I want. Mcafee rebate you’re the best! you rock! I will promote your products for free on this site because you deserve it. Not like this one company so call themself Sigmatek something didn’t even return my call or respond my email, they sucks big time 🙂 and it’s been 4 months, unbelievable! Mcafee is one of the best antivirus and security tools to use for personal and business – The company I’m currently working for still uses McAfee after many years 20 years or more perhaps and their employees are protected. However as many know, not all computer can be gurantee to be secured, one of those computer one day will get attacked with viruses, but with security in place that computer will get take off the network by disabling it’s MAC address be connected to the company network 🙂 awesome huh!
