Creating content

Posted on 7th June 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Blogging

When developing blogs and websites online the number one rule to drive search traffic is having timely, relevant, and updated content. Through the development of various platforms like Mojavi the goal has always been to create a network of developers that can contribute and enhance an open architecture. With so many sites and blog starting up every week on the web the need to create a niche is becoming more important along with content. That is why I am always looking for sites like outdoorbasecamp.com where they specialize in outdoor review content and create a community where others can contribute. You can see and participate in their forum to share your thoughts and experiences with others and gather suggestions from other outdoor enthusiasts.
They have created timely and fresh content on various outdoor activities and this will lead to a loyal customer and attract local and national experts to contribute to their site. As their success builds the search engines will pick more of their content and this will increase traffic and help them grow their brand. I can see that they will become a point of reference for some of the more popular outdoor activities like kayaking, biking, and spelunking.

Posted on 4th June 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

The original ITM (integrated tote mixer) was designed for the automotive industry in order to provide a high level of consistency across various paint mixes. With the need to have a paint agitator that would provide the same level of consistency across various industries the design has been adapted to both stainless and plastic totes. The advantage of the ITM system is that you can mix and match drive and agitator systems so that you can have one solution for many applications. Companies are looking to simple solutions that can be applied across different areas of their business and this is what Dynamix and the integrated mixers that they have designed offer today’s companies.

Why I Had A Big Family

0 comments

Posted on 1st June 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Blogging

,

While I’d like to start off by saying something deep and impressive like “I always knew I wanted to have a big family because…”, I really can’t. You see, I never really intended to have six children, but neither did I want to have a small family. I just knew that I wanted to have children and that was that.

I had my first child and it was a wonderful experience. I knew I wanted more. There was no plan that had been developed and set in stone for a future family and it had never even come up for discussion. Me and my husband just took things one day at a time and lived our lives that way. I know that most couples sit down and discuss future goals together, but I had met my match and we both took things as they came and dealt with them on the spot.

I always felt that more children would be welcomed into the family when I was younger and didn’t do much to try to stop the pregnancies. There was some measure of birth control, but it was haphazard at best. What would come would be loved and welcomed.

Me and my husband were living in a two-bedroom apartment and having the first girl was wonderful. When the second and third children appeared, two boys, we were waiting for our townhouse to be built and had to put up the three children in one room. We had one set of bunk beds for the two oldest and a crib for the baby. There wasn’t much room in that bedroom at the time, but there sure was a lot of love, fun and frivolity.

By the time the fourth in the fifth, two girls, arrived on the scene, we were well established in our townhome and had two sets of twin bunkbeds set up. Clothes were passed down from the oldest to the youngest and friends in the neighborhood donated clothes that their children had outgrown as well. It wasn’t uncommon to go out for groceries in the afternoon and come home to 2 garbage bags full of clothing set out on the front porch. Sometimes we never found out where they had come from, but they were very appreciated.

When the sixth child arrived I had a feeling that I had never experienced before. I felt full. I was satisfied. There was an inner peace that I simply cannot describe deep down in my soul. I knew that my baby days were over and that I was done.

I never regretted for one day having a big family. While somehow I went from cooking for two people to cooking for eight at every meal, I somehow lived to tell the tale. Looking back, now that I only have two older children left in the home, I don’t know how I ever did it. It seems surreal to me now to house six children and two adults in a small four-bedroom townhouse, but we did it with bunk beds. It seems unreal to think about all the meals prepared, the clothing provided and the other basics and luxuries that we were able to give to our children.

Would I do it again? Would I have a big family if I was starting over? You bet! The biggest thing that I was able to provide for my children during all these years was the company of siblings and the ability to grow up in a home that was always filled with love.

Thanks to Darwin Barton

I love my family more than anything in the world and I’m really working hard to try to save us enough money this year to surprise the kids with a trip to Disney World . They’ve never been and I’d love to take them while they’re still young and the magic will still be in full force you know what I mean? I researched Texas electricity providers and switched which has saved us a few hundred bucks and I’ve started using coupons when I go to the store, too. I also have sold some of the girls’ old baby clothes on Ebay as that’s been a nice way to bring in some extra cash – my husband doesn’t know about any of this by the way. I want him to be just as surprised as the kids when I tell him about my little plan and he’s going to be shocked when he knows I’ve saved us thousands without any changes to our everyday life! That’s the way to do it.

It is imperative that no matter what type of painting application you are getting ready to conquer the key is to having the uniformed color and application across a large job. That is why the ITM (Integrated Tote Mixer) is ideal for multiple applications no matter what type of paint solution you are using. Because of the unique ability to mix and match the drive and paint agitator you can easily switch between blades without cross contaminating. This makes changing applications a snap and something that can be done in seconds helping to improve your return on investment.

How Computer Internet Technology Has Changed the Way People Rent DVDs

1 comment

Posted on 29th May 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

, , , , , , ,

The poor old video store has all but vanished from our high streets. And for once, I’m not upset. Yes, I used to like browsing the shelves and coming home with something I never would have thought to rent if I hadn’t seen it in front of me. And yes I used to like the social interaction. Getting out of the house and all that.

But what’s replaced it is an example of the best uses of the internet. Online DVD rental, in which you pay a monthly fee for unlimited choice (and, if you pay the premium rate, unlimited amounts of films per month), has opened a world of cinema to even the most casual home user.

These days I can get the latest releases as soon as they come out. And I can get the most obscure titles whenever I want. All I do is keep a list of films that I want t see, in the site that supplies me with my online DVD rental. The package I choose (I have one that lets me have unlimited films per month, with a maximum of two at home at any one time) dictates the quantity of films I get access to within a 28 day period.

I can keep the films for as long as I want. So if I don’t fancy it tonight, or have something to do, then I can just save it until I do. I just don’t get a new one until I have watched the old one – so to keep up with subscription payments I have to make sure I watch more films per month than the equal amount would cost me at the only local video store I have left. That’s not hard – for what three recently released movies would cost me, in my local video store, I get unlimited film watching every month.

There are more ways to watch movies with online DVD rental than simply getting the disc in the post too. You can watch films online, many of them included in your price. Some you have to pay extra for, but these are usually the movies that have not yet actually come out on DVD – so you get a chance to see them before anyone else.

You can rent games from the same place too, and for the same kind of price and deal. So you can keep a game for as long as you want – but you don’t get more until you send your allocation back. Here, the service actually ceases to be such good value – unless you like playing a game for a couple of days and then returning it. Given that my monthly subscription costs the same as one game for a modern console – and that I would normally play one game obsessively for a few months before swapping – I can end up paying six times more for one game than I would have done if I had bought it to own.

For films, though, there is nothing like an online DVD service. Where else am I going to find the classics I had forgotten I loved? Not even my old high street store would have had half the films I get from my online supplier. And I can use a function similar to Amazon’s recommendation service, to explore films I have never even heard of based on what I am watching already. Another night in with the popcorn it is then!

The ITM paint agitator

0 comments

Posted on 28th May 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

You would think that a production item like a paint agitator would be fairly similar across brands and manufacturers. The main purpose is the mixing paint, or various liquids. What separates ITM (Integrated Tote Mixer) from the rest are it’s ability to mix in both a steel and plastic tote. Refined in the automotive paint industry to mix colors it has now taken on other industries that need a tighter control over consistency  from batch to batch. Because of the innovative design of ITm you can mix and match drive systems and augers to help you tailor the system for your exact specifications. With their interchangeable agitators you can easily begin on different projects with the same drive segment without cross contamination.

Migration and file extensions

0 comments

Posted on 26th May 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Mojavi Project

The New Way:
Remember that there are certain file extension like the File Extension OGG that you may need to have proper calling attributes around in order to make certain parameters work.

$this->getContext()->getRequest()->getAttribute(’myobj’)->doSomethingSpecial()->execute();

Okay, so maybe that wasn’t the best example, as it is rather lengthy, but you get my point, 1 line vs 3 lines, and no possible mistakes when dealing with large objects like copying them over without references, etc.

This subsection is to be continued….
Translating your Renderer

Mojavi2 used ‘renderers’ to translate the API of one templating system into a generic API that would easily allow a developer to switch out one templating system for another. For example, the Smarty templating engine uses $smarty->assign() to allow you to set a variable, while patTemplate, another templating system, uses $pat->addVar(). In Mojavi 2, you would then write or use an existing renderer, which you would then invoke to display your output and be output in the correct file formats.

Note: This was done typically through a filter, which would create the renderer object, then assign it to your $request via

$request->setAttribute(’MyRenderer’,$rendererObj))

Mojavi3 uses largely the same methodology, but instead of getting the renderer directly from the $request object within each of your views, it simply extends the View class. You may need to udate your file extension parameters and if you get any unknown like File Extension OGG then do a quick search as there are quick fixes and .dll updates that may needed.

For example:

abstract class SmartyView extends View
{
…..

function __construct()
{
$this->engine = $this->getContext()->getRequest()->getAttribute(’MySmartyObj’);
}

public function setAttribute($name, $value)
{
$this->engine->assign($name, $value);
}

…..
}

Note: the use of

$this->engine = $this->getContext()->getRequest()->getAttribute(’MySmartyObj’);

was simply the best solution I could come up with for getting any object from within the view, you could also have done the following just as easily:

$this->engine = new Smarty();

View

The Mojavi3 View is mostly an abstract class, which provides a skeleton of functions to work with, thus providing the unified API as was achieved in Mojavi2 (It’s unified because you are forced to comply with the naming conventions implemented by the abstract class View.)

Now, instead of intitializing your Renderer object (as you would in Mojavi2) you simply extend View, and initialize that. Like shown above:

abstract class SmartyView extends View
{

is what our new View would look like. To put this new View type into action, we extend it when declaring views for our modules. For example:

class DoSomeActionSuccessView extends SmartyView
{

}

As you can see, this is much more fluid than pulling the renderer out of $request with every new View, it’s also a lot less code that you have to copy and paste, and thus less code to maintain. You may also have noticed that the naming scheme is different for the Views, instead of naming the file format or File Extension OGG DoSomeActionView_success.class.php you would now name it DoSomeActionSuccessView.class.php, and name the class likewise(In Mojavi2 we just named our view classes DoSomeActionView, in Mojavi3 it’s DoSomeActionSuccessView replacing ‘Success’ with your application’s state).

This subsection is to be continued….
Actions

Actions in Mojavi3 are fairly similiar to those of Mojavi2, with a few enhancement and semantic tweaks here and there. Listed Below:

* When returning a VIEW_SUCCESS in Mojavi2, now return the View class constant corresponding to your application state, ie: View::Success, or View::Error
* When checking for view types supporting execution (getRequestMethods) instead of returning REQ_POST etc, return Request::Post etc.
* There is a new return type for getRequestMethods(), Request::All, which serves all request methods.
* The root Action class which all your actions extend now has a getContext() method, which allows you access to the context object.

Configuration

Mojavi3 configurations are done, by default, using .ini files. This simple and straightforward configuration makes configuring mojavi very easy. The base syntax of these ini files is as follows:

[SECTION]

; a comment…..
ConfigKey = “%MO_APP_DIR%/my/config/value”

Because some people might not like ini files, Mojavi3 was created in such a way that you could write your own configuration handlers. For example, if you wanted to use xml files to configure your mojavi, you could write a configuration handler, plug it in, and start using your custom configuration styles.

This subsection is to be continued….

Buy your own car parts

Posted on 23rd May 2016 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

It’s too bad our auto insurance doesn’t help pay for new car parts. This could save us a lot of money and people might be willing to pay higher insurance premiums; than trying to search for a cheap car insurance plan. At least I would be more focused on a plan the covered a higher percentage of the costs for new parts; since my car is now getting to that age, where I will need to be buying more and more parts for it. Luckily at Buyautoparts.com you can find OEM Car Parts that cost less and then you can have your mechanic install them.

We are getting close to a day where it will be too expensive to drive a car for most people. Some people are already living those days now. Paying for a car is just the start of the money we will spend for the ability to drive. When you figure the car insurance costs, the higher gas prices at the pumps, and now the higher auto parts we have to pay; it makes driving very expensive. So if you are faced with having to repair your car look search the OEM Auto Parts buyautoparts.com and you may save a few bucks. I think something will have to give soon or a lot of folks that are driving now, won’t be on our roads in the next couple of years.

Calibrate your HDTV with Pixel Protector

I just came across a product that claims to help improve the picture of your HDTV no matter if you have a Plasma, LED, or LCD TV. The product is called PixelProtector and they are The worlds No.1 Pixel Fix solution…since 2006. I have been looking for a product like this to help calibrate our Panasonic plasma TV to help refresh the picture. If you do some searches on how to calibrate your HDTV or prevent screen burn you will see a lot of different solutions. Many of which are pretty technical and cost over $100 or more. With the price of HDTV’s coming down under $500 it is almost better just to purchase a new TV. I have noticed that there are some various ghost images that are starting to stay longer on the screen and the colors just do not seem as sharp. I have read about and researched other products that cost from $50 to $400 that talk about providing ways to calibrate and enhance your HDTV image.
So after some review and doing a little research on my own I decided to purchase the Pixel Protector screen calibration DVD to help me calibrate our two TV’s. I will be looking to write a second review after we receive the product and post our results. I would love to hear feedback on what others have tried to help keep their picture sharp. I am not that technical when it comes to the TV, and the simple setup and calibration instructions look like they will be just perfect for my knowledge level and make the process rather pain free. I ordered the Eco friendly DVD for just under $25 and they also offer a Blu Ray version for just $5 more.

Finding the Dell 5110cn color printer and toner

The latest color printers on the market have come along with print speed and cost of operation. Color printers like the Dell 5110cn have the ability to print at 35 ppm in color which is amazing when you think that the fastest color copiers and printers only a few years ago were printing at speeds of around 15-20 ppm. With the four color printing system the speed and quality is comparable to sending out jobs to be printed. To help decrease your operational cost you can now get dell 5110cn toner at discounted rates and bring your overall cost per copy below seven cents per page. So if you are looking for a high end color printer that is cost effective in total ownership then you may want to consider the Dell 5110cn and look for discounted toner online.
