Laptop Cooling

Why don’t laptop docks have included cooling fans/pads for the laptops? There are some HP laptops at work that keep randomly shutting down, and it appears to be from a heat issue, as both machines could easily fry an egg on the bottom of them after a day of use. I would like to get…

Job Titles

So, I know job titles don’t really matter in some respects, but in the more traditional job market, it can have a huge effect on your potential career progression. Recently, I had a little back and forth about the difference between a Web Programmer and an Application Developer and how it relates to one of…

Jack Link’s Jerky Experience

So, I’ve been a long time Jerky fan, but recently, I bought some Jack Link’s Jerky and I was bummed. It looked and tasted like rubber with beef flavouring. Outraged that I spent ten dollars for one hundred and twenty grams of meat that is going to go into the garbage, I e-mailed the company…

Lockdown

I always thought it was a bit silly that companies locked down computers so users couldn’t change settings, install software, or do other potentially every day tasks to customize their experience, but after working as the sole IT person for two small businesses, I’m starting to realize how many problems I can save myself if…

I’ve always hated when people say they…

I’ve read through thousands of forum posts about people messaging Ubisoft and Steam only to have them blame…

Purolator and Other Delivery Services

I’ve never understood why delivery companies can’t take the time to contact people before they deliver packages, or move their hours for residential deliveries to the evenings? Who the heck is home at one in the afternoon on a Tuesday? I could potentially make myself available if I knew a package was coming at that…

So Much Work

Right now, with everything going on, I’m working like mad. I’ve been with Charity Marketing Group for going on eight months now, and in all that time, there has been very few slower periods. Most of the time, the company, and my duties are going at a break-neck speed. I’m almost always near my maximum…

The Bloc Québécois Should Be Disolved

I believe, hopefully like many Canadians, that the Bloc Québécois is a party that shouldn’t exist, and that it only continues to push forward a skewed government that doesn’t focus on the needs of all the people in this country. I think the Bloc Québécois should be disolved and its members compete for spots in…
