Home networking solutions are often the answer. They are designed to cover every corner of even the largest homes. A home networking system is comprised of a main router and a series of satellite modules that you place throughout your home. Most Wi-Fi system satellites use mesh technology to talk to the router and to each other. This allows a consumer to optimiz...

Location

The location where you live and work is the most important factor when choosing an internet service provider. Not all providers have service in every area. Rural areas may be more of a challenge than urban cities. Do a web search for internet providers available in your zip code area.

Internet Speed

The more users and devices you have, the more speed you will need. Consider how many individuals will be using the internet at the same time. Then consider how many of them will be streaming video or downloading large files at one time. The following are some general guidelines. Each stand...

1. We Should Really Wear Blue

Saint Patrick himself would have to deal with pinching on his feast day. His color was “Saint Patrick’s blue,” a light shade. The color green only became associated with the big day after it was linked to the Irish independence movement in the late 18th century.

3. The Irish Take Saint Patrick’s Day Seriously

As you might expect, Saint Patrick’s Day...

If you have a standard job, you probably use email all day, every day. It’s probably safe to assume that in one eight hour period you send more emails than you speak words. Sad, but true.

But because of this, it’s important to know the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of proper email etiquette. You don’t want to be giving off the wrong impression, do you?

Did you say hello and goodbye?

You wouldn’t begin a conversation with someone you just met or barely know without a greeting. You also wouldn’t walk away from a conversation without ending it with a suitable goodbye. That’s just rude… and weird.
