The Core Philosophy of Laptop Repair
Blog / 12/28/2014

The Core Philosophy of Laptop Repair By Thomas James, Author of Laptop Repair Made Easy   More and more people these days are interested in learning about laptop repair. This is not nearly ideal curiosity, but rather, merely recognition of the fact that the price of repairing a laptop is spiraling out of control. What with technician’s charges and the cost of parts, a person interested in repairing a laptop is left with the kind of bill that no one in their senses is really interested in paying. That’s why we’ve seen a definite interest in laptop repair arise in recent years. Motivated by an unacceptable rise in prices, people all over America are turning to do it yourself books, kits and training courses that specialize in laptop repair, and their attitude makes perfect sense. After all, why should a person pay an exorbitant fee to an over-rated technician to do a simple job, when with a little training and information, they can just do the job themselves and save themselves a lot of money. With people themselves adopting this attitude, it’s no wonder that the amount of courses out there have proliferated, and choosing between them can sometimes be…

Where To Submit Your Music for Potential Placements
Blog / 11/21/2014

Where To Submit Your Music for Potential Placements   There are literally thousands of different opportunities for places to submit your music for potential placements. Let’s look at a couple different approaches you can take: 1) The direct route: One way to get started in this business is to directly contact music supervisors who place music in TV shows and Films. Music Supervisors make their living by selecting the music that is used in the productions they are involved in. They are ultimately the people who make the decision as to what music is used. The upside of this approach is that when you operate this way you are essentially acting as your own publisher and you will receive both a writer’s and publisher’s royalty if your music gets used. The downside is that you probably don’t have any relationships established with music supervisors and although it’s certainly possible to establish relationships and “break in” this way, it’s going to take a lot of leg work! 2) The indirect route: This is the way I got started and I suggest you try this approach first. In addition to music supervisors there are also music publishers whose job it is to…

Usual Issues Owners Encounter When They Attempt Laptop Repair By Thomas James, Author of Laptop Repair Made Easy   While there are all sorts of laptop repair issues that the owner of a laptop might encounter, there are also preventive strategies that a laptop owner can use to prevent damage to the laptop in the first place. One of the most common issues that the owner of a laptop encounters is overheating. While desktop PCs have their own share of problems with cooling, in the case of laptops these problems are only accentuated by how compactly the various components of the laptop are fitted together. Often enough, a careless owner will use a laptop while sitting on a bed or on a similar soft surface, that not only provides insulation, but which also has a tendency to seal the cooling vents of the device. This is a practice that is little short of disastrous, and it can result in permanent damage to your laptop, and even in a fire hazard. It’s absolutely true – fires have been caused by laptop owners who carelessly left their laptops on a bed in such a way that the cooling vents were sealed shut,…

Make Name for Yourself During the Law Enforcement Hiring Process
Blog / 09/16/2014

Make Name for Yourself During the Law Enforcement Hiring Process By Detective TJ Howe   Law Enforcement is one of the most rewarding careers you could ever find. But to actually experience that reward for yourself you first have to get hired. And if you’ve looked into a law enforcement career at all then you know that getting hired is a daunting process! The process you have to go through to actually make it into the ranks of the nations law enforcement officers, is above and beyond that of any other career. Navigating your way through this 9 phase (minimally) hiring process is a job in of itself. And this job requires preparation. Walking into the hiring process with no preparation or just some advice from a friend can only result in a couple outcomes. #1 – You don’t make it through the hiring process. #2 – You do ok in the hiring process, but you stand out. So you end up being too low on the hiring list to ever actually get hired. The reality is that the majority of law enforcement applicants don’t prepare. Or their preparation only consists of asking some buddies for advice. This is a…

Complete Private Pilot Training Course Review
Blog / 09/16/2014

Complete Private Pilot Training Course Review   Ever since I was a child, I always dreamed of flying. In fact, I even planned on applying for the Air Force in order for me to fly jets. However, I never did get that chance and for many years, my dream of flying never did come true. I still did want to fly but I didn’t have the money to get extensive formal flying lessons. In fact, I still have a hard time producing enough money every month to pay for rent for my apartment in the city. Now, what more for flying lessons? I also have a friend who is now a private pilot and has a license for it. After meeting with him, he told me about the Complete Private Pilot Training Course and he told me that this is where he learned how to fly and how he got his private pilot license. At first I was really skeptical but I decided to give it a try. Besides, this may be my last chance of learning how to fly a plane or a helicopter for that matter. Once I started learning how to fly using this program I found…

Some Things You Must Know If You Want To Go In For Laptop Repair
Blog / 09/14/2014

Some Things You Must Know If You Want To Go In For Laptop Repair By Thomas James, Author of Laptop Repair Made Easy   Knowing about laptop repair is important. There are a good many advantages and disadvantages to using a laptop. The advantages are easy enough to enumerate. Laptops offer supreme mobility and a compact size that a desktop cannot match. On the other hand a laptop is much harder to upgrade, if it is not downright impossible to do so. However, there are other disadvantages to a laptop as well. For one thing, the very compactness and miniaturization of a laptop makes it difficult, if not impossible to repair, at least by a user. The user who carelessly opens his laptop without knowing much about it might well be left with stray screws that he has no place for when he tries to put it back together again. My point is that you should not attempt laptop repair without some basic idea of what you’re doing. On the other hand, it’s not hard to acquire some basic knowledge of laptop repair that will serve you in good stead. There are lots of tutorials and some very good books…

Royalty Free Music
Blog / 09/01/2014

Royalty Free Music   There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding the term ¨royalty free¨ music as it applies to the music licensing industry. Some believe that this means there is no cost at all associated with the music in question, which is not the case. Others believe that the music being licensed under this arrangement is “copyright free”, which is also not true. Different libraries will offer different types of deals and the agreements will vary to a certain degree, however, as a general rule of thumb, ¨royalty free¨ music simply means that the end user has purchased a “lifetime synchronization license” for a given song or group of songs. In other words, they have the right to synchronize your music with your audio and/or video productions an unlimited number of times without incurring any additional expense. There are other types of production music licenses, these include “Needle Drop” licensing where the user pays a fee each time they synchronize a piece of music, and “Blanket Licensing” where the user essentially leases a group of music or CDs, and is able to use the music for a specified set of uses during the duration of the lease…
