Block Pop Ups and Lock the Door

By: Nick Smith

Ralph Waldo Emerson said that "there is always time enough for courtesy." But if you own your own business or work out of your home, you probably don't have time for much else. Coupling the inherent challenges of owning your own business with the distractions of working at home can create a serious drag on your morale and income. If you find yourself spending too much time dealing with distractions and not enough time working on real issues, it is time to take action. Taking the simple steps outlined in this article can help you increase your work efficiency, and ultimately, improve your bottom line.

Block Pop Ups

Chances are very good that you spend a great deal of your day on the computer, probably working online for much of that time. Your time is too valuable to waste another second closing all those pop ups that seem to be everywhere on the Internet. Cheap or free software is available to stop pop ups from ever showing up on your monitor, and the time you will lose downloading the program will be easily made up for in saved time surfing pop up free online. Do yourself the simple favor and block pop ups today.

Create a Process

Bad habits are hard to break, but so are good ones. If you find yourself doing the same task over and over again, take a little bit of time to sit down and create a formal process for the way you will handle that situation. It can be something as simple as answering a customer or client email. If you do it the same way every time, you will always know whether the email has been answered, where the email is saved, and what, if anything, needs to be to follow up on it. Process-making will save you time on almost everything you do, from reporting to billing to ordering.

Update your Technology

A new computer may seem like a luxury that you cannot afford on your small budget, but when you consider the amount of time lost waiting for programs to load or for the system to reboot when it crashes, you may find the time lost is worth a new system. If you really can't afford to upgrade your system, think about adding more memory, or updating the processor. Adding software that will protect your computer from viruses and block pop ups can also help if you're unable to upgrade. Check online for deals and you'll typically find affordable computers and accessories.

Lock the Door

Just because you work at home does not mean you have to be home all the time. If you have an office where you do most of your work, make sure there is a working lock on it, and don't be afraid to use it. Shutting the office door is kind of like when you block pop ups - you work on what you need to work on, and not whatever comes through your door. Of course, if you work at home because you wanted to be able to take care of your kids or your pet iguanas, be responsible and never let your family lose out priority-wise to your business. If you're having too many problems balancing family and business, sit down with them and talk about your issues. Find a solution that works for everyone and stick to it.

Don't Work in your Pajamas

For some people this may be the entire appeal of working at home. Studies have shown, however, that the way you dress has an impact on the type and quality of work you are able to do. You don't have to wear a suit and tie every day just to go over the books, but consider dressing nicely when you have a lot to do. You'll mostly likely feel like you mean business if you look like you mean business.

Owning your own home business can be the dream job you want it to be, but you might need to take a proactive approach to control the things that distract you on a day-to-day basis. Eliminating distracters and increasing your personal efficiency will help your home business succeed.

How do I remove the front door panels from a 96 Ford Crown Vic? I've been looking at these door panels and think they must be held on by clips,and I expect there must also be a screw or two but I just can't find them. Either way I've never done this and I don't want to break them. Has anyone had any experience taking these panels off? How do you do it?

There are 4 screws that you have to remove before up can "LIFT" off the door panel. You have to pop off the power window controls( held in by press pins) to get at one screw, there are two under each end caps ( you can pry off with a small screw driver) that hold the grab handle to the door and near the bottom of the door where the carpet ends and the rim starts there is another screw. Do not at anytime pull the panel towards you...it has to be pushed up to get it off of the door frame. The hooks are plastic and molded to the door panel that faces down so if you pull the panel towards you they will break. You have to disconnect all the connectors ( windows , mirrors and locks ) to remove the door panel after it off of the door frame. Three should be three small blocks of rubber glued to the panel (one at each outside end and one near the center of the bottom) if one get knocked off you can re-glue it back on. I had a 96 Grand Marquis and need to replace a mirror.....It was a chore to remove the panel not knowing how when I did it!!!!!
Hope this helped you?

Stuck In The Bathroom
Remove the bathroom door knob and put it back on the reverse way so the lock is on the outside. Then push the button or turn to lock the door. Remember to leave the door open. Now, whoever is next to use the bathroom, will not even notice this and he will lock himself inside.

Salty Toothpaste
Sprinkle some salt on your victim's toothbrush. When this person goes to brush their teeth, he or she will get a salty tasted treat.

Shower Before Entering
If you know someone who turns on the shower before actually entering the tub area. Then before their next shower, turn the showerhead so it faces outside the shower area. Most people don't even look up before turning the nozzle.

Shampoo Shower Prank
Glue a bottle of shampoo to the shower shelf (to avoid damage, use clear caulk on a surface that can be scraped).

Bar Of Soap Lather Prank
Take some nail polish and coat a bar of soap with it. Let it dry. Then put it in the bathroom shower. When your victim tries to use it, he or she will go nuts trying to get it to lather up.

Unable To Open
Glue all the bottles of shampoo shut so they cannot be opened.

Terrible Aim
Sprinkle some water with yellow food coloring all over the toilet seat and floor. It will look like whoever used the toilet before you was a terrible aimer.

Cream Cheese Deodorant
Scrape off about an inch or so of your victim's deodorant and replace it with cream cheese. It will take a few minutes to sculpt the cheese in place to look like the deodorant. When finished, put the lid back on and back where you found the deodorant. When your victim needs to freshen up again, he will get a cream cheese surprise

Food Coloring In Hand Soap Dispenser
Put some food coloring inside the hand soap dispenser. When your victim tries to wash his hands, they will end up worse than before he decided to wash them.

Urinate Forever
Impress a buddy who is in a room next to the bathroom. Excuse yourself to go to the bathroom, but along the way get a large bucket with water and take it in with you. Then slowly pour it in the toilet. It will take forever to finish pouring it all in. Your buddy in the room next door will say, "WOW" as he will think you are taking a very very long pee.

So Forgetful
Tape some magnets to the bottom of a cup and the top of your car and drive away. It will look like you forgot to grab your cup off the top before driving off and people all around will try and get your attention and flag you down, while you just laugh and drive.

Cruelty To Animals
Attach a leash to the rear bumper of your victim's car. When he drives away, other cars driving behind him will think he forgot about his pet that he tied to the bumper.

Change Automobile Settings
While your victim is away from his car, go inside and turn stereo volume to max, turn windsheild wipers on, air conditioner to max, scoot seats all the way up and adjust mirrors.

Wrong Keys
Next time you are with a group of friends and two of your friends have the same type of car...for example both friends have a Volkswagon. Then chances are both Volkswagon keys will look identical. When both of your friends aren't looking...switch their keys.

Jack Up The Car
Jack up a persons car so the wheels are just barely off the ground, but not enough to be noticable.

Styrofoam Peanuts
Fill your victim's car with styrofoam peanuts then ask him to go to the store for you.

Bad Cop, No Donut!
You can usually find a bumper sticker at any Novelty Store that reads, "Bad Cop, No Donut!" If you can't find one, you can just make one yourself. Place it on your bumper and everytime you see a cop. Just drive in front of him. You might want to reduce your speed a bit to make sure he reads it.

Pop!
Put a balloon over the hole of the victim's exhaust pipe. After he drives away...a few blocks later, he will hear a big POP!!

I Ran Over My Arm
Place a fake rubber or plastic arm under your tire after you park your car. Add a small puddle of fake blood. Then hide one of your arms. When people ask what happened, tell them the car brakes weren't working

Sorry About The Damage!
Leave a fake note on someone's car windsheild that reads, "Sorry about the damage i caused to your automobile. Call me and I will be more than happy to pay for the repair" Be sure not to leave a phone number...of course there is no real damage. But the victim doesn't know this. He or she will look all over for a dent or scratch or something.
Move The Car
When your victim isn't paying attention. Get his keys and move his car. If he parked out in the street next to the curb. Then just turn the car around so it is now parked the wrong way.

Tire Blowout
Place a blown up balloon under your victim's tire. When he starts the car up and drives off, he will hear a loud POP!! and think the tire just blew out!

Confetti In The Defrost
Pour some confetti in your victim's defrost vent and turn it on high. When you s

What should I do as April Fools jokes for my sister? Mkay, so, my sister is twelve years old, a year younger than me, and I want to play a bunch of pranks on her for april fools. I was already thinking of setting her clock back like, four hours, and taking out her light bulbs. And soaking her toothbrush in the liquid from the pickled garlic. And putting tape in front of her door. I'm going all out for it this year, what else could I do?

Over-heating in any computer will often result in lock-ups, shut-downs, disk and memory errors and BSOD's -- like you, it can't think too clearly when it's brain is burning up. Get one of those cheap laptop coolers that go underneath. They have extra fans that can often help. The fact is that laptops are not well ventilated anyway as they try to put faster, hotter running cpu's and gpu's into thinner cases.
The fans are only part of the cooling system. There is a 'heat sink', a relatively thick aluminum plate that sits tightly against the surface of the cpu and gpu chips. Heat from these chips transfers to this heat sink plate which is then transferred through a copper tube that contains a coolant called a 'heat pipe' to a set of very fine aluminum fins, much like the principle used in an air conditioner or refrigerator, although in this case the coolant simply moves back and forth through the heat pipe on it's own without any other coolant pumping system.
As the heat is transferred to the fins, the fans blow air across these fins to cool the coolant in the heat pipe which continues to transfer heat as long as the coolant remains effective. I've had to replace the heat sink-heat pipe-fins unit before because the coolant had leaked out, turning the cooling system into a block of aluminum which is a very poor conductor of heat without the heat pipe system.
Depending on environmental factors, the aluminum fins may become clogged with dust making it almost impossible for the fans to be effective. You can try blowing air through the vents to nudge it out. I use a compressor, but you could try canned air. You could also try blowing 'contact cleaner' through it. It won't hurt it because the cleaning fluid in most contact cleaners is electrically inert. I've used it to flush out pop and other things from inside many devices with no harmful effects. It dries very quickly and leaves no residue. An 11oz can is around $8 to $15, and it is great to have around for lots of electronic device problems that may involve connection issues, such as switches, buttons, battery compartments etc. Some have silicon added to lubricate and protect the electrical contacts from moisture. Check to be sure that it doesn't harm plastic, or you may mess up your screen or discolor, or worse, disfigure sensitive plastic surfaces.
The best way to be sure of the condition of the cooling system is to open your laptop, which usually isn't as scary or complicated as people think. I find that I can usually just take out all the screws that are assessable from underneath, including any hidden under rubber feet or labels and doors. Lay the screws on a sheet of white paper in approximately the same position that you take them out so you will less problems determining where the screws will go back in. Then remove the keyboard to access the cpu/gpu, heat sink and fans. Sometimes you'll need to remove a bit more of the plastic shell. Besides a screwdriver, you'll also need a narrow, usually plastic, tool to pry the plastic apart where it is held together by fine locking tabs. Some local stores may sell plastic pry tools, but they are definitely available online for a small price compared to what a computer repair service will charge you to do the same thing. Laptops, iPods, tablets, and most other small devices us these locking tabs almost exclusively to hold the plastic shell together.
Try a Google search to get the service manual for your laptop. This would have detailed instructions for opening it up to replace components.
