The style of machine with a tee shaped bed is commonly known as a ” planer-type boring mill “. In the U.K. Collett and Englehard are (were) a well respected builder of horizontal boring machines but they have been taken over by a German machine tool re-builder. I’ve worked on a few of these type of machines and I personally like this style however this type of machine has good and bad points.
Large, strong worktable with large capacity that doesn’t overhang the bed at any point. Very rigid design allows heavy cuts. This also means the foundations don’t have to be as extensive (and expensive ) as on a standard boring mill. They also tend to hold their alignments for longer periods of time.
I have a G-Shock G-300 that I have had for years (purchased locally in Dec 2005). I wear it for work everyday and I has never missed a beat, even though it gets bashed around and sometimes coated in oil and grease and other muck. I have found them pretty much indestructible. I couldnt be happier, and all my friends and colleagues tend to wear the same watch without problems.
I love these G-shock watches, the different models and the fact that it is still on the original battery. Another big plus is the size (length) of the wrist band.
I don’t know about you, but to me the hardest part when developing a site is having to work on web design.
It is not because I dislike it, but mostly due to loads of time required to create graphics, typography and designs that suits me.
I found that a good way to speed up the process is to use imcreator.com to create a web site for free. It is a simple and elegant website builder that is used by expert and skilled web designers.
So whether you are a novice in web design or a qualified professional, you can build a website for free with IM Creator.
I have an UberStand, and like it. It’s plenty sturdy, and unlike other similar stands, it folds down to be carried into it’s own, flat, carrying bag (included). All the others I’ve seen are bulky PITAs, as far as transporting them goes. The build with UberStand seems to be alot more solid also. There are other laptop stand at musicians friend but if you want if you want portability and easy set up, tear down, and transport get the Stanton UberStand Laptop.
Im excited. Avid is my main NLE both at home and at work (although were still rocking 5.5 at work) Just waiting till the weekend to try it out. Not a huge rewrite or anything but some very welcome features, mainly REAL background transcode, not transcode that stops when you start to work ala FCPX. Cant wait to see that work in the real world. Also the built in LUT and frame flex thats keyframeable is gonna be sweet. FWIW, going into FX mode can be made with one key command (mine is shift-y) where in FCP 7 you have to double click and tab over. Actually more steps the FCP 7 way. The mode to mode thing used to bug me, too; but when I got a little more simpatico with the software, it disappeared as an issue. You begin to understand that it is there so that you can operate more efficiently in the mode you happen to be in. It also has become so easy to cross between them, mouse-wise, that I don’t think about it much. You can save on avid. Its one of the joys of Media Composer.
I bought my V-MODA True Blood O Positive Vocal headphone based on the reviews, and they did not disappoint. The bass is awesome, everything is crystal clear, and I heard details in songs that I’d never noticed before in 3,000 times of hearing them.
They also have other cheap earphones that also seem to get great reviews, which I’ll probably spring for if I ever lost or broke the ones I have.
In my experience is what you can afford. Freeware has a tendency to work just as well for most home applications, but paid programs can have automation options that are quite convenient. Being able to specifically track a given intrusion has as much to do with your attention to detail as well as detailed knowledge of operations. The only things I would suggest is to add a personal firewall layer, and be most attentive to where you go and who you transact with. Beyond that, if someone is specifically targeting you, there’s really not much you can do but clean up the aftermath and learn the lesson. The real issue is whether you are being targeted individually or just as a bulk effort.
The best resource for computer security are Software Security Solutions and firewall. I’ve been using both of the above mentioned for years, and after using the free versions went on to purchase the full versions.
I just made new slipcovers from mine out of pretty sheets and made them pillowcase style so I could take them off and wash them when needed. I made my patio cushion seating longer than needed so I can tuck the end under. I need to make new ones this year,and I already have the fabric. Remember the old barkcloth type fabrics from the 60′s,70′s?? I found a whole bed set at a senior garage sale .It has the duvet,shams,and is a very pretty Hawaiian type print. Gotit all for 7.00.
Check out Texas Pride Trailers, I have one of theirs and it has done well, 14K trailer but I would not put a backhoe on it regularly. But with 450 you would do better than I do w/ a 350. I go my equipment trailers at this site.
Biggest issue with most trailers is the electrical systems, many just run wires and crimp on those cheap connectors. Lowboy has a sealed harness that is in a word….reliable.
