Top 10 Ways to Boost Your Home Wi-Fi

About Being an Introvert This story had crossed my path earlier in the month and I tucked it away just as a source for inspiration someday. It crossed my path a couple of times today which I thought was a little strange and so decided to take a few moments to share my thoughts. The article was "Nine Signs That You Might Be an Introvert" and appeared in the Huffington Post near the first of December. My wife comments all the time about how she can’t believe that I can get up in front of hundreds of people and give a talk to lead a workshop. When I first became a consultant, I took peer coaching pretty seriously. I could have, and still could, go through all nine signs and point to specifics about me that would support the notion of introvert. First, he indicated that he might agree that I’m introverted but that it wasn’t bad. Secondly, he made a comment that described me with a term that I’d never heard before. I really like the way that the article describes the "nine signs". Powered by Qumana Like this: Related

Test du Raspberry Pi Model B Le Raspberry Pi n'est pas le premier ordinateur miniature — les plug computers, ces ordinateurs si petits qu'ils tiennent dans l'espace d'une prise secteur, sont désormais courants. Mais cette machine de la taille d'une carte de crédit se distingue par son ouverture, sa plateforme matérielle moderne, sa connectique et surtout… son prix ! Pour moins de 40 €, que peut-on faire avec un Raspberry Pi ? Quelques réponses dans notre test. Une carte-mère au format carte de crédit, et rien d'autre : le Raspberry Pi est livré sans boîtier, sans carte SD de stockage, ni même de bloc secteur. Pas forcément pour la bureautique Le Raspberry Pi est construit autour d'un SoC Broadcom BCM2835 : il dispose donc d'un processeur ARM11 700 MHz, d'une puce graphique VideoCore IV, et de 256 Mo de RAM. Lorsque l'on est habitué à la fluidité et la rapidité des portables avec SSD ou des appareils iOS, ce retour à une informatique plus rudimentaire est violent.

iPhone Controlled Home Security - DIY iPhone Controlled Home Security Cameras for less than $100 Due to a rash of break-ins in our neighborhood over the last several weeks, I decided to take the plunge and purchase and setup a couple of iPhone controllable security cameras in the hope that we could keep an eye on our house and be alerted should anyone try to break in. There were dozens of options to choose from. I had three goals in mind that helped me to narrow down my choices. 1. Wireless Camera - The camera had to be wireless because I didn’t want to run any cables. 2. iPhone accessible – I wanted to be able to use my iPhone to view the camera whenever and wherever I wanted. 3. Armed with these requirements, I Googled away and finally settled on two cameras from Foscam . Setup was not as straightforward as I would have hoped. Even though the cameras are wireless, you must still plug them into your router via an Ethernet cable to perform the initial setup procedures. To complicate things, I was using an iMac with an Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station as my router. On the downside:

This isn't the road network you are looking for I have to say, gis.stackexchange.com is always an interesting read. You see questions from just about every type of location data user; from GIS Professionals to neogeographers (do we still use that term?). Yesterday there was a question I hadn’t seen in a while: Is there any site from where I can get Google Road network as shapefile? As per my knowledge It is not distributed by google. So we all know that Google’s road data is proprietary and you can’t use it outside their APIs. Clearly, we need to approach OSM differently than just a free slippy map. Clearly wise beyond my years, but it is time to stop using closed APIs such as Google’s or Apple’s and embrace OpenStreetMap. It’s that simple to get the OSM road network at as shapefile.

iLikeIT: Cum puteti cumpara legal din strainatate produse la un pret mai bun ca in Romania Sa luam de exemplu site-ul Amazon. Dupa ce adaugam un produs in cosul nostru, vom descoperi ca apar cateva probleme, mai exact unele nu pot fi livrate. Pentru a rezolva problema asta, ii "spunem" lui Amazon ca avem o adresa din SUA.
