When my daughter and her husband separated, we knew they were going to be able to work everything out. They did not agree, and she even went as far as asking if she could move back home. She wanted to bring all her things back home too, which would have been a long haul since we are nearly three hours away. Instead, we made a deal with her. We had been looking a facility that does storage in Red Deer, which is where they live. She told us how many boxes she had, and we looked at units that would fit everything that she wanted to bring back home with her.
We told her that we believed they would be able to work things out. Continue reading
There are a variety of problems that can arise in a given year that affect your skin more than normal. At times they are easy to treat using creams and treatments you already own or have used before, but there can also be the kind of skin problems that require more attention. For many, visiting the dermatologist can seem a bit extreme for something cosmetic, but they are open to seeing an aesthetician. Visiting an aesthetic medical clinic is a great option for some of the more minor dermatological issues one might get that you want to get attention for because they are causing you to feel cautious about how you look.
Aetheticians can help with a wide variety of issues from acne, scars, managing oily or dry skin, and puffy eyes. Continue reading

Obviously I knew that things were going down hill with the last job. The rumors were every place. You would go into work and people would tell you they had heard that the boss was about to flee the country. That really would not have been a bad idea for him, because he had mismanaged things so badly and crossed the line to a felony. At any rate I started looking for a new job a long time ago and eventually I found something in New Mexico. I just moved into some nice apartments in Rio Rancho, entirely because this guy at work was telling me that the place was overrun with pretty college girls. I scouted the place out on a warm Saturday afternoon and what he told me was absolutely true. Continue reading
Technology v Nature. The fight still continues without any clear winners. Nature’s fury occasionally reminds us of how easily it can overwhelm all that modern technology has to offer, but indomitable man just goes back to the drawing board to come up with an improved solution.
The tremendous advances in data storage technology have been taken for granted by most users for whom the phenomenal growth in storage capacity can hardly keep pace with their appetite for more and more data. At the same time, the high-tech world of computers gives the users a false feeling of invincibility. While data storage devices have become more robust than in the past, the sheer numbers have made data disasters more common than ever before. There are many reasons why hard disk drives and other data storage devices can – and do – fail.
When Mother Nature strikes, as with the recent tsunami that ravaged half the earth or the winter storms that gripped much of North America, it is big news. While loss of life is truly irreplaceable, these disasters affect many other aspects of life. At times like these, there is a heightened awareness about data loss and data recovery. “But the single biggest culprit in data loss is human error,” claims Allison Beckley, VP (Customer Service) at Disk Doctor Labs, Inc., one of the pioneers of data recovery. “And a close second is the inherent limitations of the data storage technology itself,” adds Tariq Aslam, the CEO of Disk Doctors. It can happen anytime, anywhere, and to anybody. If you deal with data extensively, the odds are you will suffer data loss sooner or later. The important thing is being able to cope with it. And different types of users need to have different strategies for safeguarding their data. A high school student who uses his PC for gaming and the occasional term project cannot be expected to have UPS, tape back-ups and RAID systems. On the other hand, a bank cannot feel complacent that it has protected its database by installing the latest anti-virus software and anything else is overkill. The user profile, the data criticality, available budget and resources all impact the data protection strategy. However, these are some general tips Disk Doctors has for avoiding and surviving data loss:
Make a regular back-up of all your important data (including laptop drives)
Test your back-ups regularly (especially if it is a tape back-up)
Carry laptops in padded cases
If it is mission critical business data, store it on RAID systems
Use power surge protectors, and UPS systems for critical data
Use regularly updated anti-virus software
Restrict unauthorized access
If you experience problems with your drive, move the data to another drive; don’t take any chances unless your data is worth less than the cost of a new drive
If you still lose the data, do not panic; seek professional advice
Data recovery is a specialized field, and not every computer technician can retrieve data
If the data is critical, or if the drive makes unusual noises do not try DIY solutions
When you shop around for a data recovery company, don’t consider the recovery charges only
Look at the company experience, expertise, locations, facilities, testimonials, etc.
You should not have to pay an up-front diagnostic fee, or pay for any hidden extras over the quoted price, or pay for the ‘effort’ if you did not get your data
