Dealing with cyber crime

As if it came from nowhere. You are not aware of it at all. But slowly and cruelly it crawls through our intimacy. Cybercrime is what we call it. Another complication of modern technology. Our children are bullied. Sometimes they keep it hidden from us. It leads to more complications. Even things sometimes ended in suicide.

Cybercrime, as a devastating and easy way to commit crimes, has an adverse impact on the individual and society as a whole. And with its great variety it has appeared like a Frankenstein in front of us. Sometimes he uses the computer as a mother instrument with the aim of attacking an individual. Or sometimes these mere instruments themselves become victims of the genius of technology.

Yes! Genius must be told. Because the experience knowledge you need to attack a computer is a very critical thing. Surprisingly, children between the ages of 14 and 25 are the most covered criminals in this field. The question is why did it turn out to be so easy?

The great advantage of the computer is the ability to store data in a small space, it becomes a curse as a result of cybercrime. Easy accessibility is the curse. Through the complicated codes, cybercriminals look for a loophole from human guilt. Sometimes they use sophisticated but brilliant logic programs and attacks.

And see the great variety of the way. Email bombing, logic bomb, salami attack, denial of service attack, virus attack, data theft, web hijacking and latest hacking and other things. Crimes are evolving in ever-increasing numbers. In a short time it is destroying the financial information of banks and other institutions that handle money. Harassment through emails is a common phenomenon and women are the main victims of this crime. While children are helpless victims of cyber bullying. Diffusion of obscene material, pornographic element entangled them like a spider’s web. Unauthorized access through the computer system results in indecent exposure.

Not only the individual or financial institutions, but also the state faces danger. And when we talk about his threat to the state apparatus, it is not enough to describe it as a mere crime. It becomes cyberterrorism, collapsing State security, threatening official functionality, violating government structures established by law. Terrorism against humanity disrupts social harmony by propagating religious, racial, linguistic, regional, group or caste hatred. The total social balance falls into a tremendous crisis.

Since the beginning of its evolution, cybercrime has been overshadowing the field of innovation and intellect. Intellectual property rights become something of an extinct species. Software piracy, copyright, trademark and service mark infringement, computer source code theft and so on.

Laws have been introduced and applied as a reaction. Governments of different states take action, even a synchronized method is adopted to protect cyber crime, but at the end of the day, more social awareness is the only way to put an end to it. Keeping your own information is the first thing to do to avoid cyberbullying. Making your children aware of cybercrime is a priority. Particularly to strangers and chat friends, as these photographs are used as an obscene defamation tool. We need to alert them not to submit any photos online. We must monitor the sites that our children access to avoid any kind of harassment or deprivation in children. The latest updates and antivirus software are something we need to depend on. Technology is the only option to protect yourself from the technological threat. You should never forget to keep a backup to avoid data loss in case of virus contamination. We must be careful when sending the credit card number to any site that is not protected to avoid fraud. It is better to use a security program that gives control over cookies and other functionalities. And especially remembering the old proverb, ‘Prevention is better than cure’

Reasons you need life insurance

September is National Life Insurance Month. A family really can’t do without life insurance. Being young is the best time to take out life insurance. The younger you are, the less you will pay.

You need life insurance before it has to be used, that is, before it has to be used on your behalf. If you are the main source of income for your family, you must be insured. If your spouse works, you also need life insurance. Are you a partner of a company? Each partner must be insured to cover any loss in the untimely event that they have left their earthly presence. How much insurance do you need? Ideally, you need an amount equal to current debt, monthly expenses multiplied by 24, the financial needs of children (under 18 or 26 if in school) through high school, and your spouse for the duration of your expected life in case you are unable to work. The first is an ideal target goal. Every family situation is unique. If the spouse also works the computer and needs change. When the family dynamic changes, new needs arise while others are no longer necessary to cover. Today, more than a few policies can be turned into an income-generating vehicle later in life. That income later in your life vehicle turns out to be a valuable asset.

Listening to people explain how they and their families were catapulted into poverty after the tragic loss of a loved one made me realize that too many people are not protected. Many people do not have enough coverage. Those who have company-provided or subsidized insurance lose that insurance when they leave that organization. Some lose employer life insurance as a result of a business merger or purchase. Some lose their employer life insurance when they retire.

If the employees had invested in life insurance individually, the policy is active as long as the premiums are paid. Buying life insurance when you are young is the best premium you can get. Some life policies build cash value. Some life policies allow you to take cash value loans. Some allow inclusions or “Riders” that include double compensation, long-term care, and home health care additions. Some policies easily become income-generating vehicles to supplement your retirement income. In some cases it may be the only income.

The sale of AH&D (accident, health and disability) plus auto loans in the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s helped more than a few families make ends meet. It was very gratifying to be thanked for making sure they were covered. For those who benefited from the extra coverage, it was available when they really needed it.

Today there are plans that can be tailored to the needs of most individuals and families. There are plenty of plans to fit even the tightest budget. The average funeral cost is between $8,000.00 and $12,000.00. Cremation is also expensive. Average Cremation with a memorial service is $3,250.00 and up. The average Direct Cremation is from $500.00 to $2,000.00. Funeral costs are in addition to the medical costs associated with a sudden death. Many times the cost of replacing the financial contribution or the trust of one lost has a value that most do not equate in their calculations. A stay-at-home spouse has a monetary value. A family member who is a caregiver has a monetary value. If the loss of that spouse or caregiver occurs, the cost to replace the monetary value of it can be quite high. The cost of replacing your carrier is priceless. The legal system can take years if a settlement is even a possibility. Add children and elderly relatives to the equation and the necessary financial cost increases substantially.

A family really can’t do without life insurance. Being young really is the best time to buy life insurance. The younger you are, the less you will pay. Setting a premium at an early age is a smart choice.

How to tell if your husband is watching porn behind your back

As a former porn addict, I want to help you identify specific behaviors that might indicate you like it. I can’t guarantee this is a complete list or that it absolutely means he’s using, but they will help you notice behaviors.

Do you have a private computer that you can’t use? Sometimes you will have a private computer or laptop that you are very protective of. If you have a computer that you use for fun or a hobby and you don’t let anyone else use it, you could be hiding porn on it. This is sometimes confirmed if you use it in a private place, hide the screen and don’t like to share what you use the computer for.

Do you frequently stay up late on the computer after you go to bed? My dad once said that nothing good ever happens when you stay out past midnight. Anything done late at night on a computer is also generally not good. Try to see how much time he spends on the computer waiting or checking the Internet history. Ask him what he was doing and check it out. If he slips out of bed in the middle of the night, that’s bad news. I used to do this when I needed a porn fix.

Is your smartphone, iPod or iPad out of reach? Being overprotective with one of these devices may be a sign that you are hiding your porn use. These devices have history stored just like computers, but they are private devices to him. As something that is private to him, he will feel more comfortable not deleting history and might even bookmark or use apps that lead him to porn he likes. If he has nothing to hide, you could pick up the phone from him and he shouldn’t bat an eye.

Is he resisting your advances towards him to make love? I’m not one to reject my wife if she makes the first move. Usually the man makes the first move because he needs sex more than his wife. If her husband regularly turns her down for sex, it may be because she has spent herself. A man’s sexual appetite builds until he releases and then starts all over again from scratch. If he uses porn regularly, he won’t have any appetite left for you and he may interpret it as tired. If this is a frequent pattern I would be suspicious.

When you make love, does he suggest trying unusual or uncomfortable things? Porn teaches men that women love it when men do crazy things to them. Porn also teaches men that women are there to serve men. If her husband forces you to try new and unusual things that you don’t want, he may be learning them by watching porn. It’s okay to spice things up once in a while, but your biggest concern should be your feelings and your comfort.

There are other signs that your husband may be using pornography, but this list is not meant to be exhaustive. Reserved and suspicious behaviors, as described above, do not necessarily mean that she is definitely using porn. Use your best judgment and try not to jump to conclusions. If she falsely accuses him, their relationship could be damaged.

If he is in fact using porn, work with him to help him stop because it is damaging to his marriage.

Employee fatigue during periods of high intensity on projects

A workplace hazard, fatigue can be defined as “the inability or decreased ability to respond to a situation, due to previous excessive mental, emotional, or physical activity.”

It is frequently cited as the most important cause of decreased productivity and efficiency of employees. It can, and often does, result in reduced vigilance during work, poor judgment and decision-making ability, along with loss of awareness and distraction during critical and complex tasks.

Fatigue can be due to overstimulation, in cases of periods of high-intensity project work, in which employees may be exhausted, stressed, nervous, overloaded, and experiencing potential burnout. The question is, how do you overcome this fatigue and still ensure optimal employee performance while protecting their health? Here are some tips:

1. Anticipate

A project manager should always anticipate that no matter how talented and brilliant their team may be, halfway through a project interests tend to wane and fatigue sets in. Long, endless work hours, nagging business questions, and constant deadline hurdles that annoy the client are sure to take their toll. A smart move would be to anticipate this and create a response before the situation starts to negatively affect the project team as a whole.

2. Evaluate

Note and evaluate employee performance to identify and pinpoint problems. Attendance, punctuality, attitude, work coming in and out, commitments and deadlines all need to be reflected to measure the efficiency and effectiveness of the project team. An honest, transparent, and understanding relationship with employees will go a long way to benefiting the entire project where employees feel comfortable reaching out and asking for your help long before they reach their breaking point.

3. Accept

Recognize the point where fatigue becomes evident in employee performance. The importance and impact of a period of high-intensity, high-demand work should not be dismissed or downplayed. Accept employee complaints and give due recognition for extra efforts followed by appropriate rewards.

4. tackle

Anticipating, evaluating, and recognizing a potential problem are critical to getting started. These must be followed by the implementation of practices that combat fatigue before it causes lasting damage.

Now some practical suggestions:

– Always keep a positive outlook and assess and include the emotional and physical health and well-being of employees in regular project status reports.

– Adopt and maintain a workload scale that meets project requirements but is not exceeded.

– Incorporate positive reinforcement, express gratitude and appreciation to your employees which helps boost their morale.

– Don’t discount rewards and time to rejuvenate. Communicate them clearly to the team and then move on.

– Encourage sharing of roles and responsibilities within the workforce to create team harmony, adjust work times and allow appropriate time off when needed.

– Allow recreational activities to de-stress, maintain and maintain an aura of joy, while ensuring optimal employee performance. Even a team lunch at a nice restaurant once every two weeks can help.

Job stress and the eventual onset of fatigue are inevitable in demanding jobs, but by investing time and effort in properly planning an effective combat approach, one can not only preserve coherence and harmony in the work environment, but you will also get benefits for you and your team. both.

How to Write Serial Fiction Like a Blog

Creative writing can become more fun and exciting when published in the form of a serial blog. Each chapter is broken into very small parts, allowing the writer to take a more relaxed pace, while keeping the reader intrigued and coming back for more.

I started writing “Full Time Lara” almost a year ago, a work of fiction about a woman who travels across the country and embarks on one adventure after another. I spent about six months conceiving the plot, the many adventures she goes on, developing the characters and how many words she would have in each chapter.

So I started writing.

I registered a blog on Blogger and wrote my first chapter. Six months later, I have written over 50 chapters, slowly built up a small following, and find myself always itching to write more. It’s fun.

Here are some tips I’ve collected…

Adventures seem to make the best series. You have a main character who gets into one situation, gets out, and then gets into another. It just goes on and on. Each situation brings in new characters, and each situation brings out a special quality in your main character. If you look at the TV series, the book series, they all have the same format.

Your readers will want a main character who is consistent in their thoughts and actions. Therefore, before you start writing, conceive of every fine detail about your main character. It may be helpful to write a dossier on this person, perhaps in MS Word or a text editor. Every chapter you write must stay true to this person’s mannerisms, fears, weaknesses, strengths, and joys. You need to create this person’s growth story, what they experienced in their past, and the people who influenced them.

Write twenty to fifty chapters of the series first, before launching your blog. This will help you troubleshoot and illustrate any issues you may experience while typing. In fact, I wrote about thirty chapters in MS Word, and after reading it, it helped me rethink my main character, break the chapters into smaller segments, and achieve a comfortable writing pace.

Be absolutely consistent with your posting frequency. If you are going to post a new chapter every day, absolutely make sure you do it every day. If your readers notice that you post new chapters erratically, they will forget to check your blog.

Post the date of many of your chapters. That is, write several chapters in advance and schedule them to be published at a later date. I usually keep ten to twenty chapters written in advance, each one scheduled to be published two days apart. That’s my posting frequency. That gives me a month-long moving window of chapters so I can adjust and even rewrite if necessary. It also allows me to take a break from writing without interrupting my readers.

I try to keep each chapter between 500 and 1,000 words. Other serial blogs go less, between 300 to 500 words. But after writing several chapters, I found it comfortable in the 500-1000 word range.

Choose a blog template with a very simple and clean design. You want to choose a template with a larger font, or you need to increase the font size if you know how to do it. Avoid templates with flashy colors and graphics that are distracting. You want to keep readers’ eyes drawn to your story.

Change the tags and headers so your blog doesn’t look like a blog. For example, where my blog listed “Blog Archives,” I changed it to say “Chapters.” Where the blog pagination said “Next Post”, I changed it to say “Next Chapter”. I’ve also removed the date from the post so it doesn’t show and removed my name from every post.

The title of the blog includes my name “Full Time Lara, by Lara Wellen”, so that it looks like a book.

Confused with all the travel information on the internet?

There is so much information available on the internet right now regarding travel. There are online travel sites for cruises, hotels, planes, trains, and any other type of travel. But which is the right product for you? Is the location of the hotel where you want to be? Is the type of room or stateroom right for you? Is that cruise line the one I should book? Not all products are created equal or suitable for everyone. How do you say it? Contact a travel professional.

Are there travel agencies?

There have been several articles, and even the president of the United States has said that travel agencies do not exist or that they will disappear. In a way they are right. Travel agents in the past were simply someone who booked a trip for someone who called or showed up at the main office of a travel agency. Showcase travel agencies are few and far between today, as most of the “travel agents” have gone home to work. Even the term “travel agent” is going away because what they do now is different than what they did before.

Travel Professionals/Travel Advisors

Travel agents are now more advisors and advisers, which is why they are now called travel professionals or travel advisers. Even the travel industry is trying to avoid using the term “travel agent.” They no longer just book a trip for someone, they know more about what is available to the traveling customer. Travel professionals are now constantly learning, constantly traveling, getting input from other travel professionals on where they have traveled and are a resource for what it takes to travel today.

When you use an online travel agency like Expedia, Travelocity, etc. you can’t have someone to watch your back. They book the trip for you and then you’re pretty much on your own. Let’s say your flight is cancelled, who is going to book a replacement flight? it’s you, not them. If you use a travel professional, that travel professional will. If something goes wrong on your trip, if the room you booked is not what you thought it would be, who will fix it? A travel professional will also constantly check price drops before final payment and whether a new promotion offered would be more beneficial than the one that was booked with a deposit. All of these things can be addressed before final payment.

A travel professional works with you from the moment you first speak to them until you are home safe and sound and any and all issues have been resolved or addressed.

It costs more to use a travel professional

This is not always true. It’s true that some travel professionals charge fees, but not all do. This is because some providers, such as airlines and some hotels, do not pay commissions or some of the providers have reduced the amount of commissions paid to the travel professional. To make ends meet, some travel professionals charge fees. I charge $50 per person for domestic airline reservations and $100 for international airline reservations. I will also charge a fee sometimes for hotels for the same reason or if I am organizing the various sections of the trip myself. If I book a cruise or tour, I do not charge a fee as the supplier pays me a commission. Remember, whether you use a travel professional or not, the commission is still paid as it is automatically included in the provider’s price. So why not hire a travel professional and avoid hassles and save time?

The rules of travel are constantly changing and it is up to the travel professional to keep their clients up to date with them.

Examples: Passports

For example, did you know that as of January 2016 you may need a passport to travel by plane within the country? This is due to a law called the REAL ID Act. This requires all travelers to have a REAL ID-compliant ID that includes all of these fields: full legal name, signature, date of birth, gender, unique identification number, primary residence address, and a front-facing photograph of the applicant. Unfortunately, there are still a handful of states that are not in compliance. Do you know which states are compliant and which are not? Your travel professional does. By the way, the non-compliant states/territories are American Samoa, Louisiana, and New Hampshire. The states of Minnesota and New York offer optional enhanced ID at a cost, so because it’s optional, a large percentage of residents don’t have one. Some states have requested additional extensions, but it is unclear if they will be granted. Currently, only four states (Louisiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and New York) and American Samoa are not technically compliant.

Also, we still don’t know if January 1, 2016 will be the requirement date or later? Due to this law, passport processing time for everyone will be affected. All passports issued in 2006 to comply with the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative that went into effect in 2007 are expiring, prompting a large number of renewals. So because of those renewals along with the possible REAL ID application, passport waits are expected to increase even more. As of October 11, the current wait has already increased from one week to four to six weeks for standard passports and three weeks for expedited ones. Expedited in person could be up to eight days depending on travel need.

Ultimately, the REAL ID Act will require all state-issued driver’s licenses to include “machine-readable technology” or chips to help keep us safe while traveling. For more information about the REAL ID Act, visit

In addition, passports are recommended for cruise ships, just as they are required to fly outside of the United States. The reason is that if you need to fly back to the United States from a foreign port, you have a passport to do so. Just because you’re on a cruise departing from a US port, you’re technically traveling internationally as soon as you step on the ship, since most ships are registered outside of the US!

Example: Visas

A travel professional could help you determine if visas are required to travel where you want to go. If they’re not sure, they know where to send you to get that information and get confirmation that you need it or not for the type of trip you’re taking. For example, for most cruises, if you depart from a US port and return to the same US port, you probably don’t need a visa to visit the ports. This is called a “closed loop” trip. But then again, most cruise ships. Always double check to see if one is needed.

Example: travel insurance

Once again, not all travel insurance is the same. Should you buy travel insurance? Absolutely!!! I advise my clients not to purchase travel insurance, mostly from the cruise provider or product. The reason is that the coverage is not as comprehensive as third party policies. Travel insurance isn’t just purchased for trip delays, lost/damaged luggage, or cancellation protection. Some health insurance companies do not cover you when you travel outside of the United States. Medicare does not. Travel insurance will act as your primary health insurance during your trip, from the moment you leave until the moment you return home. In addition, it provides emergency evacuation for health reasons and protects you for other elements. Always read the policy and information provided by the travel insurance issuer to see what is covered. Your travel professional will know a good travel insurance issuer.

Twitter for real estate professionals: what are all the tweets about?

Tech-savvy real estate agents understand the importance of using the global reach of the Internet to your advantage. They create informative websites that are optimized for search engines, regularly post blogs, and have started creating profiles on various social networking sites like ActiveRain and Squidoo.

A relatively recent addition to the social media sphere is Twitter, a place where you only have 140 characters to write about your day, ask a question, or link to an article or website of interest. Some see Twitter as a place where users “microblog” while others see it more as a chat room with thousands of users “chatting” at once.

Twitter’s original premise was to provide a place for people to post short, simple status updates; to answer the question: What are you doing? Users share stories about their pets, upcoming appointments, their moods, and much more. You can follow the adventures of other users and accumulate your own followers. You can direct questions and answers to specific people, or send calls to everyone at once.

The appeal of this type of technology baffles many real estate agents who have never used the service, but those who have stuck with Twitter see the benefits of this new type of network.

Instead of trying to see Twitter as a revenue producer, it’s important to understand that Twitter is first and foremost a networking tool. Don’t be too promotional in your posts (known as “tweets”). If self-promotion is your main modus operandi, you will quickly lose followers. Users are not interested in being bombarded with spam posts, so if you want to use the site to advertise your services, be very subtle and make sure your personal posts outnumber the more professional ones.

While it may seem counterproductive to be laid back when trying to market your real estate business, you need to be mindful of the intent of social networking sites. They are intended for people to connect with others who share similar interests or who live in the same community. The atmosphere is casual and definitely more personal than your company website. Grammar and spelling rules are relaxed, and you can talk about the pizza you had last night or the rotten movie you just saw. People who follow you will find your posts interesting because you are being authentic.

The more people know and like you, the more chances you have to gain future clients. It’s the same as expanding your circle of contacts in the real world, and it can be very valuable to your business in the long run.

It is essential to understand the idea that social networks are effective in the long term. Unless you’re really lucky, you probably won’t get new customers right away, but you’re building a solid foundation of online friendships that can turn into business relationships.

In addition to being a vehicle for finding potential clients, Twitter is also a great place to network with other agents. You can share tips, ask questions, and refer customers to agents outside of your service area. Other agents will do the same for you. Building relationships with other real estate agents can be educational and emotionally satisfying as they can relate to the stress you face on a daily basis.

Twitter is free and it only takes a moment to create an account. Search your area for people with accounts, or see if someone you already know has an account. You can start following their tweets and engage people in the conversation. Soon you too will have a following and you will begin to appreciate the possibilities that this type of networking can offer. Be open-minded and creative, and you’ll soon see how you can make Twitter work for you and your real estate business.

Content was, is and will be king

It’s what can make or break it. It’s what matters at the end of the day. You can pack anything in fancy wrappers and present it with a taste like no one has seen before. You can surprise people to open the elegant package and anticipate wonders. but if the content is not up to par, it will leave a bad taste in consumers’ mouths and you will lose them forever. This is exactly why content matters. Let me rephrase it. This is why unique, exciting, original and thoughtful content is important. It can be in any form; be it a video, a solitary social media post, a Gif, an article, an infographic or an Instagram story; But the heart of the matter is the content. Here’s why content is, was, and always will be king. And especially when it comes to the digital space. Everything and nothing; be it branding, marketing or advertising; the content is the most important. Here’s why content was, is, and always will be king.

Engagement Catalysts:

Good content stimulates the user to talk, act on the form of the content and interact with it. In the social media driven world, a single like or thumbs up is no longer enough. The old five-step process of pause-read-like-share-follow is all about authentic, high-quality content. Otherwise, you are just one of the posts or content that people scroll through and get lost in the crazy social media scene. Make them care. That’s what content is for.

Want to sell? Use good content.

Being in a branding agency, we understand the impact that good content has on brand awareness and the stamp of authority it imposes. Even when trying to sell a product, try to make the content not sound like a pitch a salesperson would give. If you want the user to genuinely care about and engage with your brand, your content needs to make them feel comfortable and make them feel like the brand cares “more than just wanting us to buy their product.” Try too hard to sell and the corner will back down. Turn them into brand advocates and fans of your product with good content, consistently.

Great content doesn’t describe the product, it adds to it.

What else can you do? The product has been created and has a specific purpose, whatever the field. Now, the customer-facing aspect is the product and ‘how you present it to them’, and that’s where good content can make or break. And the customer will always look for what adds the most value to their current situation, or solves a problem, nothing else will. The intangible value is considered more important than a merely functional one. There’s a reason the DIY videos, how-to videos, and small cooking videos on Tasty work like magic.

Enables higher engagement and drives more traffic

Good content is a gift that keeps on giving. And if you consistently deliver it, it adds more traffic to your website. The period of stay on the website, recurring customers, advertisements and referrals; it’s all based on how good the content is and it has the power to capture and then hold the customer’s interest. Engaging content leaves a certain impression, and that’s hard to remove, be it positive or negative.

It is a boon for search engine optimization.

Nowadays it’s all about search engine rankings. As a social media agency/brand agency that ventures into digital every day, we receive many requests from clients that start with “How can I be seen on the first page of Google?”. Our answer is great content. Add to that internal inks, relevant keywords, and links to other websites, etc. it helps in how the product will be perceived. Also, don’t forget how it works wonders for a backlink profile.

We could go on and on, but that would be overdoing it. Let us know your thoughts on why content is king.

Enterprise-class storage doesn’t have to break the budget

Data growth continues to accelerate, straining storage infrastructures and putting pressure on organizations to find ways to control storage costs. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) often try to cut costs by using consumer-grade storage, but that’s a risky strategy. While it will certainly reduce costs in the short term, it creates the very real possibility of higher operating costs and downtime in the future.

Simply put, consumer-grade technology is designed for consumer-grade workloads. For example, consumer-grade hard drives are typically designed to handle an annual workload limit of about 25TB per year, much less than the 500TB annual limit for most enterprise-grade drives. Unsurprisingly, failure rates skyrocket as consumer units are plugged into arrays and subjected to data center workloads.

Another big difference is the always-on nature of the business environment. Data center storage arrays are on all the time and are rarely down for an extended period of time. When they are not supporting application requests or saving data, they are often involved in troubleshooting, system backup, and other maintenance tasks, all of which place additional stress on mechanical components. Consumer-grade devices just weren’t designed for that kind of constant activity.

In hybrid arrays that combine traditional hard drives with flash-based solid-state drives (SSDs), it has become quite common to use consumer-grade SSDs as a method of cost control. The theory is that since flash drives are electronic without the mechanical limitations of hard drives, they can handle the extra workload. However, there are multiple tradeoffs.

The life expectancy of a flash drive is measured by the number of write or erase cycles it can take before it becomes unstable. Consumer drives designed for light activities lack the durability of enterprise-class SSDs and can wear out more than 10 times faster. Enterprise SSD also offers significantly faster data transfer speeds with multi-gigabit per second performance compared to 2,500 Mbps in top-of-the-line consumer products.

Consumer-grade storage can provide plug-and-play simplicity, but without the scalability, capacity, or optimization features of an enterprise-grade solution. However, many SMBs often feel like they have no choice due to the up-front costs of enterprise-grade storage.

iXsystems is removing that barrier with its line of TrueNAS storage devices designed for smaller organizations that need reliable, enterprise-class storage. Based on the open source FreeNAS software-defined storage system, TrueNAS X10 is a unified storage array that offers 20TB of hybrid block and file storage for less than $10,000.

TrueNAS X10 arrays are loaded with enterprise-grade capabilities, including VMware, Citrix, and Veeam certifications, integration with public clouds, capacity-efficient features like block-level inline compression, deduplication, and thin provisioning, as well as snapshots, replication and data. -Encryption at rest.

TrueNAS X10 is available in a single controller or dual controller configuration. iXsystems recommends the dual-controller configuration for customers requiring high availability, but notes that those with budget constraints can opt for the single-controller version initially and then upgrade to a dual configuration at a later time. Each storage controller is anchored to a high-performance Intel Xeon D-1531 system-on-a-chip (SOC) processor.

While it’s important to limit costs and save cash where possible, you need reliable technology to drive business efficiency. With data growth accelerating at a breakneck pace, using consumer-grade solutions to address your storage needs is a gamble that could lead to downtime, data loss, and other operational issues.

Super Tactics #1. Be different. Players don’t follow the rules. They’re different, they’re quirky, they just don’t care about the norms of society. To be one, you have to flout social conventions and dare to be different. Women love guys who stand out from the crowd. So gather your courage, explore your personality and show your true nature.

Super Tactics #2. It generates curiosity. When you get to a point where women want to learn more about you and what makes you tick, you’re in the middle of the game! Encouraging curiosity is an ideal way to catch a girl. How do you do this? Be high profile. See and be seen. Speak softly. Let them know what they’re missing (but be very, very discreet about how you do it!) Desperation ruins everything!

Super Tactics #3. Have a ‘Devil May Care’ attitude. Don’t seem interested. It seems like you couldn’t care less about anyone else besides yourself. If you pretend that you are not really connected to the people around you, you have a great advantage. Girls are always looking for guys whose attention they have to work hard to get. Try this and you will find some very interesting women.
