This is what blogging bought me

Posted on Wednesday, June 20th 2007 8:58 pm by menj in Blogging

It took an incident like this to actually force me to go out and replace my monitor to a LCD screen at last. Actually I wanted to hold it off until August, where I plan to go out and get a new system along with a LCD screen. But in light of the emergency, I guess it cannot be helped.

And I bought this for RM595.00, all of that came from the money I earned solely from blogging.

What was inside in the box? Well, this is now sitting proudly on my table now.

Maybe its a good thing I have this after all. I guess now I can focus that budget of RM3K I had in mind 100% on getting the parts for the new desktop PC I have in mind. Its great to have a LCD screen, eh? Thanks to blogging for money.

      I’m interested in buying the Macbook Air (13 inch)

      Here is what I mainly use my computer for:

      1. Movies (downloading and watching)
      2. Web browsing
      3. Emailing (gmail)
      4. Blogging

      And I’m going with Apple, because I once owned a Powerbook Titanium, and I loved it until it got too old and overheated.
      as for Hard-drive space, I already have a WD- 1 TB drive, which is compatible with macs.

      Only thing that might bother me, is a glossy-display. I don’t like them. It’s too reflective. As for screen size, I admit, movies look better on bigger screens, but the Macbook air only comes in 11 or 13 inch screens. A 15 inch would be nice.

      This is the netbook I want to get for my 15th birthday, all I need it to do is emails, the internet, microsoft word and itunes. I know it’s the perfect netbook for me, but my main concerns are:

      1) Will it connect to the internet?
      2) Will I need to buy internet security?
      3) Will I need to get microsoft word/ a license for microsoft word?

      1) From my bedroom, I can reach the router with my DS wifi signal. Although my router is really unreliable and the internet up here (in the attic) stops working and I need to turn the router off and on again a couple of times a day, would a netbook be able to reach the router?

      2) On this computer in the attic, and on the downstairs computer, my family has mcafee internet security. Personally I hate having this; I hate the pop-up things saying ‘we haven’t checked this site yet’ and virus scans every month or so. How much would another internet security thingy cost or does this netbook come with internet security? Or do I not need it? I usually just go on facebook and blogging sites.

      3) Do I need to buy microsoft office? I think the license for it costs something like £80 (!). I really don’t understand if I need a license for offic or buy office?

      Thanks so much!

      Greetings,

      I’m looking for some advice or opinions on this matter. Perhaps I’m thinking too much or overreacting, but I have high expectations for myself as well as others around me, and I want to succeed more than anything. I have passions and sites on certain things, but I’m not quite sure where my specialties lie, or what I could qualify for the most… Here are my qualifications:

      B.A. in History (4 yr degree from UT) – ok strike one, but I believe this degree offers quite some mobility.
      3 years experience working in museum settings – 2 1/2 years in a children’s museum, and half a year (currently) being an intern at a history museum.
      – It should be noted my interest in these jobs were not related to children education, but more to museum sciences

      I have skills developed mainly through computer and online operations. This include developing my current workplaces museum website, updating its social media/blogging sites, managing its sales when buying and selling historical rarities, and using various web stores for our main inventory of merchandise. Also, while at my current museum (history), I have implemented a few exhibits on various topics, covering individuals, groups of people, and events and artifacts associated to this history (all this work includes doing the research, the writing, and the designing). I have more experience in this museum setting, but more knowledge and expertise in online operations.

      I’ve come to a crossroads. There are a lot of options on my plate, and things I would prefer to do, but don’t know how to accomplish some goals. Namely;
      -I am passionate about green technology and its benefits. I retrofitted my current museums lightning with brand new LED lights and tracks, helping to save an estimated $5,000 dollars a year by removing all incandescent bulbs. This was an awesome project that I took on from the beginning; I purchased the lights (not on my dime, though), installed the new lighting, ran the numbers of investment, and re-designed the museum for better preservation. I loved doing this and the benefits of overall green technology (although I have no education or work experience in this subject of green – tech)
      – I could go on to get a master’s, but understand that I might not need it if I continue getting work experience in museums (really the only thing I would want to do associated with my degree in History), building upon what I’ve completed so far. Law school is another path a lot of History majors take, but I can’t see myself enjoying this profession despite its lucrative financial opportunities.
      – An MBA or some sort of business related degree or specialization would be really appetizing for me. I would love to manage or run a business associated with my passions (History, green tech, museums) but have NO idea as to how to take an access to this option.

      Anyway, I know I’ve left a lot of words on here, but I don’t have a lot of professional advice coming in from anyone I talk to about this. Any opinions or advice you guys give I would absorb very well.

      Thanks for your time.
      Also – I am 22 years old… Don’t know if that matters

      My laptop LCD screen got mest up I think my friend stepped on it. The screen has lines all over like colorful lines and you can’t see the screen, but you can’t feel anything on it, it’s internal so I know that it is the LCD that got mest up.
      I have a warranty on my laptop, so I was wondering if the warranty will cover this since it’s my fault?
      Also how long does it usually take to fix?
      Thanks!

      I ask as I see that there are loads of people saying bad things about Windows Vista.

      I use my computer for music and blogging, also ripping audio to mp3 etc, also email and word/excel.

      I dont play high end games only yahoo web based pool perhaps, so what would you recommend on what I would want to use it for like I mention above.

      Many thanks in advance.
