This is really more of a side effect of the way that computer sales work. As a computer salesman, my goal is to pair you with a computer that (a) you'll be able to use to accomplish everything you want to do with a computer, including things you weren't thinking about (games, netflix) but that you'll use the thing for anyway, (b) that is capable of running things that your workplace / school will require of you, and also (c) that fits into your lifestyle well enough that it's something you'll be happy to keep using. If I fail at this job, two things will happen. You'll definitely be upset with me, because I sold you a product that didn't do what you needed. You're also very likely to return the product for a different one, and that hurts my numbers more than me selling you a cheap computer.

Free Knitting or Crochet Pattern Tutorial: Coffee Cozy Every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday mornings, my girlfriends and I gather together at the coffee shop and knit, and talk, and laugh, and cry, and knit some more. Some of us are happy just to watch, while some of us knit row after row of perfectly executed garter stitch, and some of us are just a wee bit obsessed. The magic of our needles and camaraderie brings an ever changing blend of men, women, grandparents and children to the large round table; watching in awe or sharing stories. I have come to appreciate each and every person who has passed through our group, and have come to depend on this profound connection we've created with each other. Today, the tone at the table grew to sheer panic! We were all completely shocked and surprised about how there's only a month until Christmas and no one has started their handmade gifts.

Taman Shud Case Following a public appeal by police, the copy of the Rubaiyat from which the page had been torn was located. On the inside back cover of the book, detectives were able to read – in indentions from handwriting – a local telephone number, another unidentified number and a text that resembled an encrypted message. The text has not been deciphered or interpreted in a way that satisfies authorities on the case. The case has been considered, since the early stages of the police investigation, "one of Australia's most profound mysteries".[1] There has been intense speculation ever since regarding the identity of the victim, the cause of his death and the events leading up to it.

Tim Ferriss's 4-Hour Workweek and Lifestyle Design Blog “There are no new ideas, just new applications of old ideas.”– Laird Hamilton Laird Hamilton (@LairdLife) is widely considered the greatest big wave surfer of all-time. He is credited with the creation of tow-in surfing, as well as the rebirth of stand-up paddle boarding. To get amped for my below interview with him, check out a few minutes of this insanity: Hamilton has starred in multiple surfing films and was the centerpiece of Riding Giants, a documentary about big wave surfing.

Make your own paperback wallet! I wanted to share my tutorial for making wallets out of old paperback books (or any paper media, really.) This basic wallet was not my idea... the original link does not work (but here it is anyway.) The original design was flawed, and the wallets ripped the first time you opened them. I changed the design, and made them much, much stronger. My own wallet is over 1 1/2 years in use now, and still going strong. Not bad, huh?
