My Electric Bill Was Too High

When I got my electricity bill a few months ago, I was really surprised at the total amount due. It was over twice the amount that it normally was, and I knew that something was wrong. I contacted the electric company, and they told me they could send someone out to audit the overage, but I decided to hire my own person since they were going to charge me anyway. I did a search for a level 2 electrician in Wollongong, knowing that I would feel better having an unbiased person coming in and looking things over.

It is not that I think the electric company would have scammed me, but I know that their loyalty does lie with the company rather than the consumer. I wanted someone who was going to be on my side of things if it came down to it. I was able to find a … Read More

A Short Explanation of Video Production

So, you’re probably wondering what is video production exactly and how can it help me? Video production is pretty making a film, but everything is stored digitally rather than on actual film (For those younger readers, basically film are those black strips of plastic that you might have found in video cassettes as a child). Basically, video production involves: pre-production, such as writing and planning out the film, production: actually filming the film and post-production: correcting for errors, enhancing the sound and et cetera. It’s a very complicated process which is why usually people contract for it which means they hire other big companies to do the production for them.

What scenarios might you need this sort of service? The most common one would be business ads, but there are also services for movies and animation as well. Video production is really no different than film production apart from the … Read More

Best Laptops for Programming

Your standard laptop doesn’t look the way it once did, either, with dozens of convertible designs that rethink the standard clamshell to take advantage of touch interfaces. Some laptops double as tablets, with hinges that bend and fold, while other touch-enabled PCs are actually slate tablets that come with hardware keyboards for notebook-style use. There’s simply too much variety in the laptop space for one size or style to fit every person’s needs.

Granting an Old Man’s Wish

Last month, my grandfather turned 90 years old. He’s lived a long and fulfilling life, and we asked him what he wanted to do for a birthday party. He said that he’s seen a lot of things, but he’s never seen a magician up close, so he wanted us to hire a magician. We found one on that could perform at the party and prepared grandfather for the party of a lifetime. He wanted to see all kinds of things disappear and pick a card from a deck of cards. I think he’s watched a lot of magicians on television over the years, so he had a lot of tricks in mind.

When the magician came to the party, my grandfather acted like a kid who was having his 7th birthday party, rather than his 90th. He cheered as every trick was being done, especially when he got to … Read More
