Make Life Easier

24/10/2009

This is one of those rare occasions again – two posts in one day! Just had to mention this though. It was as if a lightbulb came on.

I refer to the conversation I had this afternoon.

I was fumbling with the LCD projector. It was an old one. Not very clear. And certainly not very bright. Worse, there were two lines running down the entire length of the display. Sigh. It was not going to be fun to get this ready.

Then the person who was observing me said, “We should get rid of this.”

And even before he finished speaking, I KNEW where he was heading!

Plasma or LCD TV screens of course! That was soooo obviously simple! Do away with all the fiddling, and maintenance, not to mention the reduced brilliance! Why, all the images would be as clear as…. what I see on my computer screen! If not better!

What’s more, this person said that it was probably within budget!

Now all I need is some TV wall mount which should be easy enough to source!

Let Your Fingers Do the Walking

24/10/2009

She had studied there and liked it there.

She went back there in search of greener pastures.

But she didn’t know it would be so hard when the Global Financial Crisis hit.

Thankfully, this seems to be coming to an end and most economic indicators are showing signs of stability. It may be too early yet for recovery but jobs are certainly coming back into the market. This augurs good news for my friend. Otherwise she’d be stuck with no prospects of staying on!

I heard about the Tampa Job Search based in Florida. Apparently it has one of the largest databases of job offers. Like the old slogan, I shall ask my friend to let her fingers do the walking. However, this won’t be in the particular coloured pages; rather, this would be on the keyboard! Yes, a few clicks and who knows perhaps her dream job will be there for her!

Hmmm perhaps I should drop her an email give her the link to this post!
