How to Watch Blocked Internet Videos « Broken Secrets September 27, 2010 at 5:00 am Chad Upton By Chad Upton | Editor The internet is a great place to catch TV shows and clips that you or your PVR missed. Unfortunately, a lot of websites only allow their video content to be viewed in their service area. It’s not because they’re mean, they may have contracts that prevent them from distributing outside their area, not to mention cost savings reasons. That’s right, it’s expensive to stream video over the internet to thousands or hundreds of thousands of people in a reliable way. Secondly, they may not be allowed to broadcast outside of their broadcast area. There are also legal agreements with members of various guilds and unions that may prevent content from being distributed in certain areas or for a finite time after the original air date. Broadcasters can identify which country you’re in when you access their website. I think there is at least one ethical use for circumventing regional lockouts.

untitled How can I make $12,000 for next 6 months? How to Get a Used-Car Warranty (and Not Get Screwed) (Photo by fotog/Getty Images) It's Eric Anderson's job to know how much it costs you to own a car. And number-crunchers like Anderson, a senior analyst at IntelliChoice, know more than they ever have before—thanks partly to the proliferation of certified preowned (CPO) programs that nearly every carmaker in America now offers. These programs offer extended service contracts as part of the package when you buy a used car, which means, among other things, that all the repairs are tracked—and tracked in the same way that repairs done under new-car warranties are. Anderson's math helps guide IntelliChoice's Best Overall Value of the Year Awards. Figuring out whether to buy a warranty on a used car, or how to do it, can be a tangled mess. Go CPO Certified preowned-car warranties provide peace of mind because factory warranties are backing the product, but Anderson says there's another crucial factor: manufacturer vetting. Like any insurer, carmakers want to insure mostly healthy patients.

Best Company How Is Being a Billionaire Better Than Being a Millionaire? 11 months living on "prepped" Food storage Salt and Vinegar: Nature's Rust Remover June 5th, 2014 in blogs Email 139 users recommend Salt, vinegar, baking soda, alcohol: the ingredients for a like-new plane. Here is the Stanley 220 standard block plane laying halfway in the vinegar and salt bath. You can see the bubbling around the fill line in the container. After a solid 12 hours in the solution, I pulled the plane out and wiped it down quickly. After giving the plane a scouring, I put it back into container with water and baking soda for about 10 minutes. Once out of the neutralizing wash, it just takes some concerted scrubbing with a fine steel wool to bring out the shine of old steel. Here's a Stanley Bailey 5 1/2 I recently received that was treated for about 2 days. This Stanley Bailey no. 3 was very rough when I got it and is in the middle of a treatment. As a beginning woodworker and recent college graduate, I don't have the cash to buy brand new planes and tools. Once everything is sitting in its vinegar bath, it's time to add the salt.

laundry.reviewed Jeans were originally designed to withstand the rigors of the blue-collar workday, but in today’s society, they’re also high fashion. That means you need to treat your Levis like Versace if you want them to keep on looking their best. And the best way to do that is to keep your denim out of the washer and dryer. While efficient, these devices will eventually ruin your costly clothes. If you've invested in some premium denim, follow these four tips to get the most out of your beloved bottoms. Soak your denim in vinegar. Whether you paid chump change for a pair of black jeans or spent half your paycheck on indigo-dyed selvedge denim, the goal is to keep the original color. Try soaking your jeans in cold water and vinegar instead of washing them. And if you must use a washing machine, toss in a cup of vinegar on a hand-wash setting—but please, no detergent. Give your trousers a light steam shower. Water, both warm and hot, not only fades your denim—it causes shrinkage. Hang your jeans outside.
