We are still getting stuff ready, but we are in the house. The car is not in the garage, because the garage is full of boxes which we have not gotten round to unpacking just yet. I have hooked up the satellite dish already, because I had to watch the college football games Thursday night. I had to go to http://satellite-direct-tv.com. It is an easy thing to do if you are working hard at it and you have done it before. So it only took me about half an hour to hook up the dish and get it working. The job is not done permanently.

When I decided to buy Datpiff views, I thought it was going to be hard to select the right company to provide this service for me. It seems that with each legitimate company, there are a dozen that are at the other end of the spectrum. I decided to just do a search for the most reliable company that does this, and I was very happy with what I found. I clicked on the first site that loaded, fully prepared to have to look at quite a few more. I saw that I hit the jackpot with the first one though. (more…)
Ever have grandparents who get a taste of social media? You know they go for the one they can post and like and share on first. Then they hear about Twitter and Tweets. Then they ask the nearest tech savvy kid to explain it to them. The kid is probably about 12, and gives a quick one paragraph explanation that leaves the older folks with just enough info to get them in trouble. Let me tell you why I had to find out how to get Twitter followers for my grandmother’s account using tactics businesses actually use.
She saw that a lot of people on Twitter had thousands of followers. She had decided to set up an account and start sending out Tweets. She had the basics down okay. She was still having a bit of a problem with understanding how to do the hashtag thing, but she was getting enough practice. Still, she was not getting any followers other than her very few friends who had signed up for Twitter and a few family members. (more…)
I am in the process of wrapping up the purchase of a house. I am pretty excited, because owning a house is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I have just not been in the position to buy one before, because I did not have enough money for a down payment. I managed to use my tax return, and some other money to put towards the down payment, and now I am looking at home insurance deals as I am going to have to pick an insurance policy before the mortgage will be official.
Since I am trying to get all of this wrapped up swiftly, it is important for me to get house insurance soon, and then the mortgage will be official, and I will officially own the house. That will make me feel better, and it will give me a good bit of relief, when it comes to this subject. I am going to have to find a policy that is good, and has an adequate amount of coverage.
One of the things I am concerned about though, is finding an adequate amount of coverage, without either too high of a deductible, or too high of a premium. I guess that premium is what concerns me more, because it is something that I am always going to have to pay. But, I should also be careful to not get a policy with too high of a deductible because that could obviously be quite bad for me. It is going to be hard to avoid both things, so at some point, I am going to have to make a compromise in my best interests. First off, I am going to try to look into some of the companies that offer insurance plans in my area.
Many of us have been clearly unhappy with iOS 8 that we’ve begun to downgrade iOS 8 despite the fact that it is actually against the terms of service which Apple has set for it’s consumers. Doesn’t it just make you want to shake your head in absolute disbelief that a company as powerful and as rich as Apple could go as far as try and to control what we can or cannot do with our own devices? Once we put money down on a product and purchase it, shouldn’t that mean that the product is actually now ours? You’d think so.
Unfortunately because of the way that IP laws actually work, we do not own the right to the item itself but the right to use the product. (more…)
I am down here in Phoenix looking for a place to live and trying to figure out where the best sort of place would be. Of course it is really hot down here and I can not believe it, but it also gets cold at night. I went out last night and it was blazing hot, but by the time I got back to the hotel it was sort of chilly. I met a guy who worked for one of the Phoenix High Speed internet providers and he said that they even got snow down there in the winter. (more…)
When I was a young boy, I grew up in, Tyler, Texas. I moved with my family to another state, when I was 11 years old, but I still have a lot of fond memories of my time in Texas. I really enjoyed it there, and I told myself that one day, I would move back. It has been a few decades, but I am finally in a position to move back. I have my eyes on a house, and I am in the final steps of buying it. On, www.energyproviderstexas.com, I will learn more about electricity prices in Texas, because it seems that the situation is a lot different in this state, than it is in other states.
I had no idea that the electricity industry was not regulated in Texas, until I started to look for a electricity provider for my are,a and realized that I had a lot of options. It was kind of a shock at first, but I would describe it as a pleasant surprise now. I like to have options, because it means that there is a higher chance that I will be able to get the type of service that I actually want.
I hope that there are not any snags in purchasing this house. I have scheduled the moving company to deliver our belongings to the house within the next week. But if I am not able to complete the purchase of the house by then, then I do not really know what I will do. I am looking into electricity prices, and the utility prices, just to give myself something to do right now. I want to be prepared, when it is time to actually move into the house. Hopefully, it will not be too long until we are able to do that.
I am going to have to switch internet service providers in the near future, because my current provider is trying to raise the prices. I do not think that their prices are all that good in the first place, and as such, a raise in prices, over what we are currently paying, is simply unacceptable. That is why I am going to need to find someone else to buy Internet from, and I want to make that happen soon. I am seeking a way to find deals on cheap dsl locally, and I hope that there are some really excellent prices available.
I want to spend less than 25 dollars per month on my internet connection, and I really hope to not exceed that goal. I know that is pretty inexpensive, but I have a feeling that there is a DSL deal for that much offered by somebody. (more…)
- A male contains a Y-linked genetic disorder and mates with a healthy female. What percentage of the female offspring would contain the disorder? What percentage of the male offspring would contain the disorder?
Answer by Peter S
Males are XY and females are XX so the female offspring have no Y and so 0% disorder. Male offspring (XY) will all have a Y from their father and so =100% disorder.
- How could the function y=3t^2 +4 be plotted on a graph to produce a strait line? What is the numeric value of the slope and the intercept of the line?
Answer by kuiperbelt2003
write the equation as:
take the ln of both sides:
ln (y-4) = ln[3t^2]=
if you plot ln (y-4) vs. ln (t), the slope of the line will be 2
- How is the y-intercept related to an arithmetic sequence?
Answer by KnowhereMan
The y-intercept simply tells one where the line intersects with the y-axis. It provides a point of reference (literally) with relation to the origin (0,0). When positive, it’s above the x-axis. When negative, it’s below it.
There are tons of things that I could come out here and tell you about direct tv, but most of those things you will already know, but what I am going to do is tell you about satellite tv in general and how it can help you get to the better things in life. You see when you save nearly forty or fifty dollars a month on tv each month a lot of good things can happen. You will have more money to spend on your family or food, you can keep that extra fifty a month and put it towards a savings so that one day your kids can go to college. There are tons of things that you can do with it. The only thing that is wrong to do with it is to not get it. You see if you don’t switch to satellite tv you can never know the feeling of saving fifty dollars.
There are no catches or gimmicks or anything like that. (more…)
