I have been studying the question for a few days, ever since I got up here to Canada and realized that my Netflix USA account does not seem to work up here in the Great White North. I have been transferred to the Toronto area, in fact I kind of like it here and I think that I shall eventually get all of the problems with the move sorted out. It is going to be pretty comfortable here once I get a few things fixed up. In fact I found a nice apartment within walking distance of my office and it is pretty cheap compared to what I was thinking that it would cost me to rent a place like this. It is not very big, but that is quite fine with me. I am only one person and I do not have a lot of things with me. Read the rest of this entry »
I signed up for Internet access at http://www.satellitestarinternet.com/hughes-net/arkansas/ in preparation for a big fighting game tournament. I attempt to watch the tournament every year, but in previous years, my Internet connection wasn’t fast enough to handle the stream. I would either have to watch the stream in the lowest quality, which was always grainy and hard to see, or watch it at a higher quality with constant lag and buffering. Sometimes I would miss out on the intense action of the tournament because of this, and I hated it.
Using my new Internet connection, I was able to watch the stream on the highest quality with no lag or buffering. I could watch multiple games being played at once and each one ran smoothly. On top of that, I could also do things that I would normally do on the Internet uninterrupted. I could check my email, make calls to my friends via VOIP, and even upload some files, all while watching the stream.
The tournament took place over 3 days and there were 8 games being played. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people have a love of history and like to visit sites that are rich in culture with an interesting past. For those that are considering their next trip to an ancient land, they should think about visiting Peru. This South American country is full of archaeological dig sites where Archaeologists have found many different artifacts and writings from ancient civilizations.
The website that specializes in Peruvian archaeology highlights each site dig. In the highlights, the date of the dig with items found is listed. It is not uncommon for site users to see pictures of items found in past digs. Read the rest of this entry »
Believe it or not, my love for Peruvian archeology came about because of the film, Jurassic Park. That is not as much of a stretch as it may seem to be. I loved dinosaurs, but they quickly took a backseat once I saw how archeology played a major role in what we know about them. From that point forward, I knew that I wanted to know as much as I could about archeology. The more I studied, the more aware I became that Peru is steeped in archeological history and finds. As I read about some of the oldest architectural finds in known history, I became more enthralled.
I had already majored in business management by this time but that didn’t stop me from taking a class on Peruvian archeology when it became available online. I learned about the history of the entire region as well as some of the more memorable finds. Entire societies were discovered through various digs. Read the rest of this entry »
