I’ve been working on cars professionally for the better part of ten years and in that time I’ve encountered a whole host of interesting people and situations.Many of which would have gone easier for myself and my customers if they knew a few of the “secrets” I’m about to tell you.… »
This one’s going up because I know some people here on the Odeck use Hola (the Firefox or Chrome extensions for it at least) to watch content that is otherwise blocked to them because of geographical restrictions. »
Second semester completed. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to write here, but man, this semester has been busy. For those just joining that don’t remember my earlier posts, I’m getting a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Security from Western Governors University, a non-profit school offering online… »
...because math doesn’t have to be hard.
Hello happy lifehacker readers and random denizens of the kinjaverse (the rickety publishing platform on which this house of cards is built). How are ya’ll doing this week? Any cool projects? Seeking advise on how to deal with the world? Or just how to sort out your kitchen? Find something cool? Interesting? Fun?… »
Hi ya’ll and welcome to the very weekly cross thread that I apparently have to time stamp 3hrs early to show up. How are y’all doing this fine day?
It happened that I have been traveling a lot during the past three years, often staying for weeks in just one city. At some point I have realized I’m concisely willing to spend some time looking for an apartment to rent, rather then just hoping on Booking.com and choosing a room (unless I’m in the city for 1-2 days or… »
A James Michener you are not, although you may be in any number of stages of authorship (or maybe not), but seriously haven’t you ever thought about writing your own book? I did at least a dozen times and even have one manuscript finished….but I kind of not really sure whether it’s worth to see the world or not.
I found this, probably at an ahk thread. I may have even posted it before. The rub is what to do with it. »
If you’re a user of the launcher called SlickRun, or if you’d like to try it, newer releases are available, as of Dec 2014. There are two versions, one for 32bit, the other for x64.
Imo, SR has always been the launcher to use, though others like Launchy, Executor, and “FARR” have come and gone from my system.
It comes… »
It seems like everyone is shooting videos for YouTube this days. About their kids, trips, cats, even more cats, makeup, hair and all other sort of tutorials and of course, cats again. Some people make a very decent living out of it, in fact. EvanTubeHD - a 7 year old kid reviewing toys and video games is said to earn… »
Most of us cannot leave our jobs on Friday evening and not think about work until we arrive back on Monday morning. If we work for a company, there are always task responsibilities that are either long-term or that are rather urgent and need attention over the weekend. If we are entrepreneurs, we really never “get… »
Hello! Welcome to the Friday open thread, where we say goodbye to Elmo and collectively wonder what we could have done to help him before he went airborne.
Chrome may be the best browser around, but it eats up your PC’s RAM like turkey on Thanksgiving. If you’ve ever looked at your task manager, you’ve probably flipped out at the sheer number of Chrome processes and the memory they hog. Here’s why Chrome uses so much RAM, and how to curb its gluttony. »
In 2013, when Gawker Media sites moved to the new Kinja platform, a set of reader forums—including Groupthink on Jezebel, Observation Deck on io9, and Opposite Lock on Jalopnik—moved with them. Other reader sites sprang up on the same model. The result was a group of reader-run sites on Gawker Media website domains,… »
Hi happy people! Welcome to the very weekly
Whitenoise, Hackerspace, (even I can’t keep it straight) GroupThink, Tay, Odeck, Oppo, Backtalk, and Clashtalk cross thread. What are ya’ll doing right now?
Owning a business in the 21st century is, as Dickens put it, “the best of times and the worst of times.” It is the “best of times” because e-commerce has opened up the entire world to wanna-be entrepreneurs or pretty much anyone able to set up a website, list some products (not necessarily own) and add a checkout.
