3 Months with Verizon Wireless, Results

Oct 19, 2021 by Paul White

So its been just over 3 months since I switched from Google Fi to Verizon Wireless.  One this is clear.  There is a huge difference on Verizon.  My entire life I have assumed the spotty coverage, dropped calls, poor audio quality, and inconsistent speeds were just a fact of life with cell phones.  I didn't expect much more when I switched to Verizon, with the exception of a more expensive bill. Here are the results

Yes, Verizon costs more.  But I am finding the biggest reason to move to verizon is one you only realize after you move, and its also one they don't mention in their marketing.  Voice quality affects business relationships!

Google Fi service gone to Shit

Google Fi service gone to Shit

Sep 12, 2021 by Paul White

A few years ago I posted about switching to Google Fi, which is an MVNO carrier ( meaning they don't actually have any toweres of their own.  The process was simple,  and I was happy with the service.  Until I wasn't.  Now I just switched to Verizon.  Here is my story and why many of you might be about to do the same.

Sony Vegas Pro Crashing caused by bad media indexes

Jul 10, 2021 by Paul White

Recently my son was editing some of his videos for youtube.  He came to me with a problem. Vegas was crashing.  It would lock up and then force close.  I suspected It could be the Video card, or maybe a corrupt system file.  Turns out it was just a corrupt index.

As Stores reopen, get ready for a huge upswing in the economy

Apr 28, 2020 by Paul White

One thing I have learned is whatever the TV talking heats are pushing as part of their fear agenda, almost never happens.  They simply state theoretical bad case senerios in an attempt to keep viewers engaged.  But the truth is COVID-19 is not like anything they have ever seen before, and what they are predicting is not going to happen.  Here is my prediction for what will happen.

Solo mining for higher profits with ALT coin crypto mining.

Nov 25, 2019 by Paul White

As a hobby I mine crypto currencies.  After all when your work station has a couple of high end GPUs why not?  Of course those of you in the know, obviously know I am not mining bitcion, but rather one of the hundreds of other ALT coins that are still minable with GPU, and haven't been taken over by the ASICs... yet..  Forever I have done pool mining, but recently I decided to give SOLO mining a try, and now I will likely never go back.

Sony a99ii Overheating during 4K recording possible fix

Oct 6, 2019 by Paul White

When Sony's A99ii Full Frame DSLT camera came out it had leading specs that people like me drooled over.  But unfortunately it seems that Sony never intended pros to use this camera's 4K video recording for more than a minute of video.  I guess they want us to fork out the big bucks for a dedicated Video Camera, rather than have the novelty of an all in one Photo / Video machine.  After several years I think I have found the cause of the overheating, and its all in the batteries.

I was about to reinstall my entire OS to fix this issue, then one last attempt to determine the cause and I found it.  If you recently started having problems with Dreamweaver CS3 or any version for that matter, crashing when you attempted to open certain files, then I found the cause.  Its in your code, not Adobe's

What The Yang Freedom Dividend will do to the economy

Jul 17, 2019 by Paul White

I am a huge fan of Democratic Candidate Yang.  A real Tech guy that gets it,  But I am not such a fan of his $1000/month per person Freedom Dividend.  If he gets elected and actually gets this thing through the House and Senate ( unlikely ) here is what it would do to the economy.
