NHL updates – Sports

When Alfredsson’s goal went in, we were out of there. I’ve been through the presentation enough times with us on the wrong end, and I really didn’t care to see it again.

We drove back to North Buffalo in time to see SonTwo’s tap recital. Nobody was really expecting me to show up, and I have to say that the look on my four-year-old’s face when he saw me there was enough to make me forget about hockey. At least for one night.

We drove back with tunes on – no postgame analysis for us. As I write this at 8:00 on Sunday night, while watching The Simpsons, I still haven’t read the sports section. I needed to figure things out on my own without the dillholes at the Buffalo News ruining what has been a great season for me, and for the Sabres.

 

So here’s my amateur analysis.

The best team won the series, as almost always happens. The performance Buffalo gave in games One and Three were so awful, so abysmal, that those two games were the deciding factors in the series. You simply cannot hand the other team two games and expect to win, because there are so many things that can happen in the other games that you can’t control. Game Two was a toss-up game, and the team that got the lucky break won, as so often happens in overtime. The officiating in Game Five was, well, less than fortuitous for Buffalo. But there was no cushion to absorb a tough-luck loss, because they had given away two previous games, so the series ended yesterday.

We’re all going to have plenty of time to analyze what went wrong, and we’ll be doing that right here. But in the end, understand this: a very good Buffalo Sabres team played some bad, out-of-character hockey just when they couldn’t afford to. In other words, they had a slump and a loss of confidence at a time when you just cannot afford it. By contrast, Ottawa came in on a high and only continued to improve. All that said, they were two very evenly matched teams that just had momentum in one team’s favor.

For those who don’t watch hockey much, this happens all the time. It happened to Detroit and Ottawa last year. It happened to Boston and Philly the year before the strike, and you can go to ESPN yourself and look up all the favorites who failed, for whatever reason, to advance to the Stanley Cup after they dominated the regular season.

Put another way, sometimes things just don’t go the way you want because of any number of reasons. Sure, it’s our jobs to analyze the minutiae, but tonight it feels like it’s all a bit too obvious to me.

Lindy Ruff is not a bad coach, our defense isn’t horrible, our team isn’t soft (notice how here it’s still “our” team?). Something strange happened to Buffalo that led them to start questioning their abilities, and it showed on the ice. The discussion, of course, will be that Lindy Ruff could have coached better, and our defense could be improved, and our team could use a couple more physical players; but tonight we’ll leave the gross hyperbole to others.

Social Media Plugins: Article by SEO Agency Perth

So, this week, i’m looking at website plug-in’s, or more specifically, social media plugins, are they worth it? More and more often, here at IT Freelancer, we are seeing hundreds of businesses and companies use social-media plugins on their websites. A great way of staying in touch or sharing your content, social media is fantastic to ensure your voice is heard loud and clear. However, what many businesses who come to us fail to realise is that social media plug-ins can significantly slow down the speed of your site. And we all know that one of the biggest turn-offs for web browsers is a slow-loading page, right? By simply adding three social buttons to your home page (take, for example, Twitter, Facebook and Google+), you could be unnecessarily adding around 400 kb of page load and 40 server requests. Yes, really!

Increasingly, search engines, such as Google, are using page load speed as a factor in SEO rankings said by SEO Agency Perth. So what you think may be making you more relevant could actually be distancing you from your audience more and more and more. So, now you know it’s a problem, what do you do? Do you delete all your social media plugins, or do you stick with ‘em?

 

Do I Need Social Plug-Ins?

Of course, having a site which is social-media savvy helps to keep your page fresh, light and relevant. But, first off, you should check out which parts of your site sees the heaviest usage of sharing tools (we doubt your “contact us” and “help” pages really need it!). This means that you can see where they’re most valued and most needed, and then delete as applicable. Next, always keep monitoring the social media tools you’ve got installed, particularly if your page has a blog. Is your page being shared? Are the buttons helping in any way at all? If the answer is “no”, then go ahead and delete. Besides, do you really want your customers to see that none of your articles are being shared?

What Are The Options?

There are other options to social buttons. To enjoy faster page loads, but to still ensure customers can connect with your social media pages, why not simply link back to all your online profiles using custom icons? And if you want your users to have the option of sharing your content, there are ways around it without resorting to plug-ins. For example, find out how to share on Facebook, and here for Google+. As ever, here at IT Freelancer, we understand that the net can be tricky to get around. If you’re still scratching your head and feeling utterly lost, then let us help!

Dryer Takes Too Long To Dry

If you’ve been in the appliance repair business as long as I have you would know that taking too long to dry clothes is a very common clothes dryer problem. In fact when people call service companies they often say, my dryer is taking a long time to dry however it is very hot on the top. If you think about it, that doesn’t make much sense. How can a dryer be extra hot but take a long time to dry? Well it is usually because of a dryer vent restriction.

Often times people will say, when I open the door to the dryer it seems very humid inside. They also might say that there lint filter is picking up very little lint.

What I have just described are the classic symptoms of a dryer vent restriction. The best way to confirm a dryer vent restriction is to go to the outside of the house while the dryer is operating and feel the volume of air coming out of the vent. If you have little or no air coming out of the vent, you have a vent restriction, and that is most likely why your dryer is taking too long to dry clothes. Believe it or not one time as a service technician I had a service call where a rabbit crawled into the dryer vent and died. Therefore I have come to expect critters, birds or debris clogging up a dryer vent.

 

If you go outside and discover very little airflow coming out of the vent then you need to find out what is causing the dryer vent restriction. But the most important thing you should do is stop using the dryer. In addition to a fire hazard, it could wind up being a costly repair should you need to call in a service technician to replace your dryer thermal fuse. All dryers in use today have at least one dryer thermal fuse, and many have several. They usually open the circuit to the dryer motor in the event that the dryer gets too hot because of a vent restriction. When that happens the dryer will not start.

If you use a plastic corrugated dryer vent pipe you are more likely to have a vent restriction. That is because compared to a solid rigid aluminum pipe there are countless places for dryer lint to get stuck and build up in the vent

So the bottom line is, if your dryer is taking too long to dry, check for a dryer vent restriction and correct it.

The basic dryer airflow direction for all dryers is the same. Air enters the back of the dryer near the motor and passes through the motor to keep it cool. This is why you should never operate a dryer without a vent! If a dryer does not have a vent the humid, dusty air exits the dryer and immediately reenters via the air inlet. Lint builds up on the motor creating a fire hazard and premature motor failure. Under normal conditions cool air passes through the motor and is forced by the blower past the heater into the drum. The now hot air passes through the clothes and enters the filter. It then leaves the dryer via the air duct that exits out the back of the dryer where you connect the vent.

VoIP phone systems at futura

Phone Systems For Your Business Office Needs

 

You may have heard the term SIP trunking or SIP trunk thrown around by tech heads. The fact is it’s not a friendly term and most business owners, managers, or decision makers have a clue or care to have a clue what a SIP trunk is. Simply put, a SIP trunk is a VoIP telephone line futuraoffice.com.au/phone-systems . It allows for one concurrent phone call to come either in or out of your office.

The reason this VoIP telephone line is called a SIP trunk is that “SIP” stands for Session Initiation Protocol, which is a specific type of VoIP. In essence, you could call a SIP trunk a VoIP trunk. Now the word trunk, in this case, means line; however, the word trunk was invented because there are 2 types of phone line services: analog and digital.

There are analog lines which we have all been used to having in our homes and offices where you have an actual copper pair wire and that copper pair wire has just one telephone number that belongs to it. With lines, you cannot receive multiple calls on one telephone number because there is only one line that actually belongs to that telephone number. This is why line hunt groups were invented so if line 1 was tied up the phone call would jump to the next line in the group and so on. Now, what is a trunk? The difference between a line and a trunk is that a trunk is digital. It is not associated with a specific telephone number, and it does not come into your building on a copper pair. It comes into your office via your internet connection.

The beauty in this is that let’s say you want to move your operations. With a regular phone line you would have to call your common carrier, and schedule a move where the carrier would have to come to the new location and install new copper lines. You’d have to wait for them to come out and then you’d have to pick a very specific day for this all to happen, making it almost impossible to move seamlessly. With a SIP trunk, all you need in the new location is an internet connection and you are all set! The digital world is a better, more flexible world!

So when you hear the word SIP trunk, just think of it as a digital phone line or a VoIP phone line.

VoIP Service Continues to Dominate

While it’s apparent that many industries, businesses, services, and models are suffering during economic and psychological downtimes, VoIP service is not.  If this isn’t a testament to the fact that VoIP service is the present and the future, then I don’t know what is.  Any product or service that can grow through these times, by definition, is a product that adds tremendous value to its end user.  It’s a simple concept really: growth during what our own president has called a crisis numerous times indicates a darn good product!

The fact is businesses small, medium, and large, all need VoIP service.  Whether it’s a SIP trunking service or a hosted PBX, or a virtual office, these services are all going to help the end user tremendously.  More business organizations are starting to figure this out, but it is happening slowly and steadily.  As with any business technology, decision makers are weary of doing more harm than good, but ultimately, the proof is in the pudding!  Business VoIP service continues to grow and business VoIP providers continue to thrive during what’s been called the worst economy since the early 80′s.

Wireless Conferencing

Business video conferencing phones

Video conference phones are mainly used in the business sector for remote conferencing, where this allows the user to transfer voice signal along with the visual audio mode. The cordless and corded video conference phones are the two main types of the business video conferencing phones available in the market. The corded expandable video conferencing phone usually provides the full-duplex audio in the small conference rooms as like single unit and in larger rooms as an expanded system. The most of the corded video conferencing phones have the features like three microphones, speed dial, noise cancellation, recording output on the base unit and level controls. A cordless video phone is found to be a high performance wireless conferencing phone because it provides the video in the small-sized rooms with up to eight participants, full duplex with clear audio.

The wireless phones eliminate the restrictions imposed by wires and the use of the WDCT 2.4GHz wireless phones easily connects the unlimited number of participants at a time. Most of this wireless conferencing phones have the features like 150ft wireless signal range, digital spread spectrum, 360-degree microphone coverage, automatic power save mode, 8 hours talk time, dual function power supply charger and have the automatic power save mode. The minimum required components for the business video conferencing at each and every terminal are.

  • Codec
  • Speaker
  • Microphone
  • Camera

The camera and microphone capture the sound and image and the codec converts the audio and video into the digital signals and then encodes and transmit them to the other end. The use of this wireless conferencing phones in business conferences reduce the travel time thereby increasing the productivity of the business and communication made remotely is another advantage of the business wireless video conferencing.

Real benefits of the wireless video conferencing

Video conferencing has reduced the travelling time spend on attending the business meetings conducted on the different place and now this technology is being used in every industry. Recent developments in the wireless networks and the mobile device have propelled further interest in being able to video conference the information at any time from anywhere. The generic application and use of the video conferencing are too numerous because in every department of organizations the meeting is conducted in which they use it for the interviewing or recruiting the new candidates, making the presentation video for the customer, connecting the dispersed staff without travel etc.
Initially many of the organization have implemented the wireless video conferencing technology to travel savings and in addition to this the video conferencing has three major benefits namely enhanced business opportunities, improved management communications and increased efficiency and productivity. The wireless video conferencing provides the tangible benefits to the organizations and in which the devices which are handling the video conferencing ranges from the handheld devices to the high-end conference rooms. This difference in the range of the technology is easier to use, connects more people at any time and in anywhere, moreover the cost is not found to be an issue.
