Are you interested in saving and preserving life? It has been said that our nation has become a selfish and self serving nation, but I don’t think that is completely true. If we were so selfish and self serving we wouldn’t advance technologies for the preservation of mankind such as stem cell research. Of course there are a few selfish and greedy individuals who do it for the glory or money, and those who donate or help for the hopeful increase to their life, but as a whole stem cell research does one thing: save lives. One company leading the stem cell world is a cord bank facility called Cryo-cell. Cryo-cell helps people by giving you the option to store cord blood with them from your babies cord blood.
Cryo-cell even challenges you to compare us and find out if their service is right for you. They push the limits and challenge their rivalry companies to step up and continue the advancement of technology with them. Of course Cryo-Cell is leading the way in this endeavor which is why they are so confident in their comparison charts. If you do choose Cryo-Cell you may be interested in their Current Offer which could save you a boat load of money!

Here in a couple of days I’ll finally have the opportunity to order the final piece that will allow me to put my 4 500GB hdd’s in RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks). The real question is what sort of RAID array do I go for? I’ve heard a lot of conflicting opinions on the different RAID setups. Originally I wanted to go with a RAID 5 setup… then researching it I started to find a lot of information that showed RAID 5 as ALWAYS having a Hot-Spare drive… No offense, but I don’t need/want a Hot-Spare. I’m not running a full on server environment where information is mission critical… I can lose all my information and I might pout for a few days, but I’ll rebuild it, I mean my websites are all up and running respectively, and most everything can be re-obtained in some form or fashion. So double redundancy isn’t really that necessary… and I don’t need it to be rebuilt THAT fast if there was a failure.
Either way with what I’ve been seeing (don’t know if it’s true or not) but with RAID 5 I end up with 1TB of storage space and a slower speed than RAID 0 w/ 2hdds which then brought me to RAID 10 which also gives me 1TB of storage space but is as fast as two hdd’s in RAID 0. Then there’s RAID 5EE which should give me 1TB of space with who knows what sorts of speeds… I’d say about that of RAID 0 with 3hdd’s but some of the people I’ve read stuff from say no. I’ve also read on TomsHardware that regular old RAID 5 (with no Hot Spare) will give me 1.5TB of space and be as fast as RAID 0 with 3 drives… so I think that’s what I’m going to risk running… if nothing else I’ll make sure and set it up without a hot spare and it’ll give me 1.5TB of hdd space whether or not it runs too much faster.
I’m thinking that the people having troubles with speed come from running RAID with too large of a stripe size so their information isn’t getting spread out. Which brings me to another point… do I make a super small stripe size to force files to be split up, or do I go with a larger stripe size for faster transfer speeds? I’m thinking 64kb stripe size… but maybe 32 would be the better choice since I’ve got a whole bunch of little files for website things that would just eat up hdd space in no time if they were forced to take up 64kb each.
We all know that getting out to the gym is hard, and dieting is no fun either. So where do we all turn as Americans? That’s right, the quick fix surgery is always the right fit for anyone. Just like in that movie where Cloning becomes popular and when you get too fat and old you simply get cloned for a new younger you, get your thoughts and memories copied to the new clone and dump your old body off to work in slavery. If you’re getting old and fat but are too lazy to actually go to the gym, and too unconditioned to be on a diet get yourself a lap-band surgeon to fix your ailments!

I’ve been looking for somewhere to get a new cell phone recently, but everyone wants SOOO much for the phones. You either get stuck with a huge up front price, or tied to a contract for 2 or more years. That’s why I like BestInCellPhones.com they offer Verizon cell phones and cell phones for many other companies out there for great prices! I have to give a big thanks to BestInCellPhones.com they’ve made finding great cell phone deals a snap! Now I can get the plan I want from Verizon, without being tied to a ridiculous contract for my cell phone plan! Freedom from high prices or long contracts is a wonderful thing!
I’ve talked a lot lately about how many people have flocked to the internet during these hard economic times. What doesn’t get mentioned a lot is how many of those people get swallowed up into the vast depths of the internet. It’s a shame to watch a new person to the world of the internet get drowned and burned out by all the big sharks out there. You absolutely must get your site seen on the search engines. Anything less than the top 10 for any particular term and your site may as well not exist too. One of the best practices for enriching your SERPs and increasing your SEO quality is to get listed in as many free directories as possible… problem is finding the right ones for yourself! Trying to find enough relevant directories to get your site SEO optimized is more than a little bit of a pain in the butt.
Luckily there are services that offer affordable manual directory submissions! I’m actually thinking about using the service for myself, at $0.14 per submission getting my site listed on 1,000 directories is only $140… not bad considering the equivalent in blog advertising will cost you more than five times that much. When I launch my vacuum cleaner review site I know one of the first places I’ll be using to get it listed is DirectoryMaximizer.com along with some more expensive services like PRWeb, and PayPerPost. But DirectoryMaximizer is definitely my favorite, they have some great features such as allowing you to spread out your submissions (to avoid the sandbox effect) to where you can get listed in either 100 directories a month for 12 months, or do a slow 5 week launch. And you can keep track of all submissions to help avoid duplicate link content.
I was extremely happy to find DirectoryMaximizer, they’ll be included in the SEO campaign of every new website that I launch for a long time!
When my wife and I met it was no accident. And it wasn’t because we were both hanging out at the same bar the same night. You might find a fling here or there at a bar, but for true love you’ve got to find someone with the same passions and loves as you. My wife and I met doing something that we both love doing, working at the Renaissance faire.

Woot! I’m getting fairly excited about the whole vacuum cleaner review site! It’s going to be good. Gotta get it off to the right start though. The build is going kinda fast, but a bit slow at the same time. Lots of annoying little things here and there that have begun to add up and get in the way. Plus I’ve got to hide some of the aspects of the site (things that I don’t want other people messing with). Oh well it’s going to take some time, and energy to get it all done, but in the end it will be worth it.
Wow, so it seems that PPP may have actually done something right! Yeah, no kidding honest to goodness they may have done something that actually benefits bloggers. On a couple of different levels. A) they got rid of interim posts, so less writing for your money! B) they increased posts to 7 per blog per day! (used to be 3) C) they lowered the minimum cost per post to $1 (for bloggers $2 for advertisers).
All I can say is that my job is secure, when the seasonal LifeTouch position ends some time in June/July I’ll be able to jump right back into blogging and never have a break in what I make! Should be a good thing… combine that with what I’ll be changing about kclanparty, and the vacuum review website I’m constructing… I should be making about 1/3 of what I’m making at LifeTouch right out of the shoot! Couple of months down the road and I’ll be making just the same
