Unmetered Dedicated Server

~ Posted on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at 1:16 AM ~

Before I became a SAHM (yes, I used to have a job long long ago!), I used to work in the IT field.

The term Unmetered Dedicated Server reminded me on one of the first projects that I can recall happening in my previous company which was migration of the company's system from a shared server (managed by the group IT) to a dedicated server. This migration primarily affects the IT and Finance systems and will definitely benefit the company in the long run.

To begin with, having the entire company system on its own dedicated server means the company now has primary control of its own usage and settings. Prior to that, the company's system is under the group IT management, which means, it takes longer time to respond to issues and changes and that will also impact decision making process as everything had to go through the group IT.

Now that the system is under an unmetered dedicated server, it means the company is free to fully utilize the bandwidth all by itself as it is no longer sharing with other subsidiaries and hence will not be bog down by other resources compared to previously having to share with other subsidiaries which are parked under the group IT management.

I am glad my previous company made the decision to move itself out from the group IT shared server as we all noticed the significant improvement towards the system and processes soon after that.

Earning Side Income Doing Courier Jobs?

~ Posted on Monday, May 21, 2012 at 3:15 PM ~

As a SAHM, I often heard from my friends who joke about using their vehicles to earn money as well while they are driving around, going from one place to another. There's also the idea being mentioned amongst friends and ex-colleagues about making use of our own car to fetch other children in the same neighbourhood as well since we have to drive them to school and places anyway.

Other than chauffeuring children around, do you know that we can also earn some side income by doing courier jobs such as delivering/picking up parcels, documents, equipments, everything! Of course the bigger the vehicle you have, the more items you can allow to deliver or ship along!

I came across this website that offers services to all parties: the carriers, the brokers and the shippers. The amazing thing with this company is it allows you as the carrier to search and connect to both customer and brokered loads, then negotiate and manage the brokers and shippers online and also get payment fast.

Now isn't that amazing to be able to fully utilise your vehicle to earn money since you are going to use it anyway?

If only they implement this in my country. Now imagine one day when my kids are ready to go to school and I have to chauffeur them around, why not do so and earn some side income as well right? Awesome...!

What are your thoughts about this concept?

Decorating Your Bathroom

~ Posted on Saturday, May 5, 2012 at 1:31 AM ~

Do you know that the average person spends about two weeks in the bathroom each year or about three whole years of their life in the bathroom?

With this amount of time spent, I would think it is necessary that we have a bathroom where we feel comfortable to be in and that its' environment and  surrounding brings calm and relaxation feel to us whenever we are inside the bathroom.

Now what are the important features that you consider into when it comes to decorating your bathroom?

For me, I think bathroom lighting is an important feature to look into when decorating your bathroom. If I have the choice, I would choose a contemporary bathroom lighting, something like this:

I prefer bathroom lighting which is simple and clean looking, one that does not stand out or look out of place.

Another feature to consider when decorating your bathroom is the bathroom mirrors. With so many types and designs available on bathroom mirrors nowadays, it is not an easy task to choose one that is going to complement the look of your bathroom.

 I would personally go for something simpler in style, and yet look classy and unique at the same time. I mean, look at the bathroom mirror shown below! Isn't it gorgeous?
