Is there anything more nerve-wracking than coming up with a creative text message for somebody you’re interested in? You try and try but everything seems like a version of “nice meeting you.”
You’ve got Texter’s Block. You’re as nervous as Paris Hilton on Jeopardy. You’re shaking like a martini. What do you do? Relax. Remember the Seven Golden Rules of Flirty Text Messaging and you’ll be blowing up their phones with witty, funny text messages that’ll make them want to know you better.
1) Do Not Send Open-ended Texts.
Here’s the very worst one you can send: “Hey, what’s up?” You may as well have texted: “”Would you mind coming up with something interesting to say because I’m so freakin’ boring the plaster peels off the wall when I talk to it.”
2) Create Value With Your Texts. Interest, smiles, laughter, these are all values you can give to the other person on the line. You can’t create value with a line like, “how are you?” In fact, you’re putting the burden of providing value on them. Here are a few “Value Texts” that make the point (taken from The Flirty Text Message Helper: Witty Texts For Clever People):
Let’s say you got the phone number of somebody you’re interested in but you’re not quite sure they feel the same level of intensity you do. You can’t overtly flirt so you have to create value in other ways. By engaging their creativity, for example. You could send a text message like:
“”My neighbor just bought two dogs, and she wants to name them after an eighties pop duo. What do you think about Milli Vanilli?”
If you know the person you’re interested in is just as interested in you try sending a text that says, “”Stop.” When they answer, “Stop What?” you text, “”Stop thinking about me. See? You’re doing it right now.”
3) Reinforce The Memory Of Your Interaction.
If you both complained about your boss when you talked, extend the conversation through funny texts. Example:
“”My boss is doing the work of three men: Larry, Moe and Curly. Hope your day is going better.”
Or, “”My boss has my hair on fire. You?”
The point is to make every flirt text vibrate with a witty sheen that makes the other person want to know you better.
4) Keep It Short
Length isn’t just the enemy of humor; it’s also a flirt-killer because it communicates neediness. As in, you’re so lonely and bored that you’ve just spent 15 minutes composing a text and you expect them to do the same.
5) Use Proper Grammar.
Once, a girlfriend showed me a text from a guy she was sort of interested in. He asked her to “”brekfiss” and that was the end of that. I took a look at all of his texts and couldn’t tell if he was using abbreviations or whether he was an illiterate who kuldnt spill.
6) Make Them Smile.
Once, I got a text that said, “”Last night I renamed my iPod The Titanic. Now when I plug it into my computer it says, “The Titanic Is Syncing.” How could you not want to get to know that person better?
7) Don’t Over-Text
Never, EVER send a second or third text if they haven’t responded to your first. Wait a day. Otherwise, you’re going to seem desperate. The truth is, if they don’t respond right away they’re just not that into you. Sending additional texts will just reinforce the nagging feeling that you’re not for them. That doesn’t mean you should give up; it just means you need to exercise patience. In 24-36 hours send them a text that’ll pique their interest. Something that has to do with them. Like, “”I just met your twin.”
Whether you’re learning how to text a girl or how to text a guy, the rules are the same: Create value in the form of engagement, creativity or laughter. Even transgressions can be turned into an opportunity for a chuckle. Once, I went out with somebody who screwed up. Here’s what they texted: ” “On a scale of 1 to Chris Brown how angry are you?”
Funny texts don’t just buy you forgiveness; they buy you the next date.

If sex with him was a natural progression then you don’t have to worry about how to keep him after the act is done. A man will stay with the woman if she satisfies his other needs too. Here is what will actually keep him hooked to you.
Your attitude about sex
If you don’t give too much importance to the fact that you are having sex with him and focus on other aspects of the relationship then he will realize that you don’t intend to use sex as a bargaining tool. He will definitely respect you more than before if you begin doing this.
Stop pestering him
Men don’t like it when women push too hard for a commitment. They know that they are mature enough to commit when the time is right. The moment you push him he will begin to feel that you are an insecure and desperate woman. Just give him space and time to take his decision.
Keep the sex action great
Treat sex as it should be, a pleasurable activity that both enjoy, and don’t show that you are doing him a favor by allowing sex in your relationship. However, if you feel that he is only interested in sex then have sex only when you want it and not whenever he wants it.
Impress him with your other qualities
There is more to life and you than the occasional romp in bed. Show him how complete a woman you are and impress him that you really are wife/girlfriend material. After all you can have sex only for a few minutes and not the whole time that you spend with him.
If he is not the romantic types then take the matters in your hand and romance him. The way you talk to him or hold him will convey your feelings. Involve him in your activities so that you can spend quality time apart from sex. This will give romance a chance to bloom.
Respect his space
Have a life outside this current relationship and make sure you don’t intrude into his. Respect personal space and he will be thrilled to know that you are not the clingy desperate woman that all men are afraid of.
Have fun with him
Make sure that every moment you spend with him is spent in a happy and fun filled atmosphere. He should feel happy when he sees you off for the day. No long faces no nagging and no arguments. This way he will look forward to meeting you again and again.

Dating a new guy can be stressful at times. In the beginning you don’t really know if he sees you as casual or if he actually does want a relationship. Guys in the early dating stages really are testing you to see if you are relationship material. Excluding the players of course. They want to see what you are made of.
Guys fear that you will turn into a high maintenance drama queen. Keep this in mind, as even if he does want a relationship, the drama queen will scare him away. He will leave you in the dust and search elsewhere.
There are signs that men who want a relationship show. Below are 7 sure signs this is what he is looking for and that he sees you as a potential.
1. He calls you and keeps in contact on a consistent basis. He doesn’t go overboard though. If a man is calling almost daily or texting, he is interested. Beware of the man that calls or texts constantly in the beginning. Chances are he is looking for a relationship, but with the first woman that comes along, you really aren’t that special. The chronic texter and caller does this to all women, not just you.
2. He makes plans ahead of time and doesn’t call you at the last minute. He picks you up, takes you out and pays for the date. Even if he doesn’t have a lot of money, he still takes charge and wants to make sure you have a good time with him. This does not mean always going to his house. He takes you out in public, he is proud of you.
3. If you are wondering does he want a relationship, another sign is he is truly interested in your daily life. He asks about your friends, school, work etc…He takes an interest in that which interests you. The fact that he pays attention to what interests you speaks volumes.
4. He shares his daily life with you. He wants to tell you about his day. He tells you stories about his friends and family. He talks about his pets, his interests.
5. He introduces you to friends, family and coworkers. If these people in his life know you exist, chances are good he does want a relationship with you. If they all know your name, you are in.
6. He talks about the future. He may ask you to a concert that is a month away. If he is making plans that are in the distant future and is including you, he sees you as long term.
7. He uses the term “we”, not just I. When he is talking to others he makes sure they know that you are a couple and that you have done things together. He doesn’t falter or avoid the term “we”. A guy that proudly utters the word we, well you don’t have to ask, “does he want a relationship “, he likely does.

Are you slowly getting attracted to a guy friend of yours? But he already is dating someone, if you are patient and sure of yourself you can turn things in your favor. Read what approach you should take to get the guy you are interested in.
Analyze your relationship with him
Find out what he thinks about you, has he slotted you in the friend category and treats you as his buddy. He may not think of dating you for the fear of spoiling the friendship even if he leaves his current girl friend. So, you have to start behaving like a probable girl friend and stop being his buddy.
Pretend she doesn’t exist
Do not ever initiate discussion about his girlfriend, if he starts the topic listen patiently and make a mental note of things he says about her. You can gauge the level of his involvement through this. If he rarely talks about her maybe he is not too serious about her which makes things easier for you.
Dress up for him to take notice
Dress well in a classy yet sexy way to show your appealing persona. Let him see you in different light and not just as a friend and fun loving girl. Plant a seed in his mind that you are interested in him.
Remain in constant touch
If you know how frequent they meet then talk to him or text him as frequently, just take care not to smother him with your constant calls. Make him feel comfortable by being in touch so that he feels he can talk to you about anything whenever he wants.
Do not criticize her
If he talks about her, steer the conversation to another direction but refrain from passing disapproving remarks about his girlfriend. This will show you in poor light and may backfire if he starts defending her.
Smile and laugh a lot
Show that you are happy and fun loving girl and show your gorgeous smile; whenever you see him to make him realize that you are happy to see him. If you happen to see him somewhere unexpectedly say hello to show that you have noticed him. It makes him feel special.
You have to persevere a lot and have loads of patience for things to turn in your favor. It may take longer if they are a couple for more than a year. Or if they seem too happy together it is better to give him up as he may never see you as a girlfriend.

Wireless LAN Switches: The Best Solution
There are two types of wireless access points Intelligent (Fat) and Thin wireless Access points. A fat wireless access point has everything it needs to handle wireless clients. A Thin wireless access point is basically a radio and antenna that is controlled by a wireless switch. If you deploy several Fat wireless access points they need to be configured individually. With thin wireless access points the entire configuration takes place at the switch saving you time and money.
Wireless LAN Switches provide many benefits:
Wireless Mobility – Intelligent access aren’t managed in a central location which means there is no third party monitoring the movement of a user. If a user moves to another work area traditional wireless access points have a hard time passing off the user to the new access point. Thin wireless access points are controlled be the wireless LAN switch who will manage the users movement.
Security- Using the wireless LAN switch the administrator can check logs, configure is security settings, make group polices for wireless users all in one spot. Also built in to many wireless LAN switches are RADIUS servers which will give another layer of security on top of your encryption policies. In enterprise wireless networks the administrators biggest fear is rogue wireless access points. Wireless LAN switches can detect when a new wireless access point comes into the area and decide if it is a trusted or non-trusted device.
Placement – Power over Ethernet is another great feature of wireless LAN Switches. Power over Ethernet eliminates the need for an power outlet to be near the wireless access point. This saves your company money by not having to install new power outlets. Also this improves security by not having the wireless access points within easy reach of passerby’s.
If you are deploying a wireless LAN for a company I would be scared if you don’t utilize wireless LAN switches and wireless thin access points. The upfront costs of these products are more but your total cost of ownership will be less than having to administer each wireless access point separately. To sum it up home owners should stick with Fat access points and businesses should use thin.

Lately there has been a buzz online talking about the test trials giving away the new iPad. But some of us don’t bother to sign up because we’re not sure if the offer is real or not. Believe it or not, there are legitimate offers that allow you to get a FREE iPad by testing it out and giving the Apple Corporation your opinion of their new product.
Don’t waste time trying to win one or wait on the long lines which will eventually start to form once the Apple store starts to carry the new iPad. I know some of you have pockets full of money, but if you’re like me, I’d rather get one for free and save my money for software and new APPS to run on my iPad. There are ways to test and keep an iPad for free and if you’re interested in getting one of your own, then keep reading the rest of this article.
You may think this offer to be a fake or some sort of scam, but if you have been online lately, there have been a ton of offers available to win an iPad. But this offer lets you keep one for simply trying it out. As long as you follow the instructions correctly and complete the offers given, you’ll have an iPad in no time. The cost of the device is covered by third party sponsors.
The Apple Corporation wants customers like you to try their new iPad and give a review of how the new tablet-style computer works. Now to me that sounds like a pretty sweet deal. Reviews like these are usually honest and hard core and help the Apple Corporation find any bugs in the system or learn about applications customers may want or need that they hadn’t thought of. This is much more valuable to them than any amount of advertising. Think about it; how many times have you thought “man I wish there was an APP for this or an APP for that.” Well, here is your chance to have your voice heard.
You better act fast, once the Apple Corporation gets enough feedback on the new iPad, this offer will disappear. Once they have an idea of how to improve their product or market their product to increase sales and profits, the free offers will be gone. It would be very wise of you to become a test subject for the new iPad and be the first geek on the block to own one. Once the iPad hit the shelves I’m sure you’ll regret being the one who didn’t get to tell Apple how to improve their new revolutionary device.

When we look around at all the people on their laptops typing away or simply using them to listen to music while we read we may find ourselves amazed at the technological revolution that is upon us. The days of mainframe computers are behind us and the day of mobile cloud computing is here. The laptop is the backbone of the new modern age.
There are so benefits of laptop computers that make them essential in this modern age. Some of those are, but are not limited too, syncing data to the cloud so that it is available anywhere and everywhere, the ability to access the all of the knowledge and information of the internet anyway and everywhere, and having a full service entertainment center capable of player mp3s, CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, and the countless streaming movies and music sites. The availability of the information of the internet is available because of recent advances in the area of mobile broadband internet. What was pioneered in the cell phone industry has made its way to laptops and cemented itself as a must have for people who use their laptops on the go.
Syncing your information to your home computer, work computer, laptop, and the cloud is by far the best thing about the modern era of laptops. This means that if you are surfing the internet on one computer, then go home and want to be at the exact same page then you can do that. Also, you can use free software and websites such as Dropbox, SugarSync, Windows Live Mesh, and many others to have your data backed up to the web, which in this type of situation is also called “the cloud”, and have it synced across all of your computers at the same time. Another benefit to these types of sites is they make sharing information with team or family members incredibly easy.
Being able to access the internet and feed your media fancy anywhere are the next two best things about laptops. Both of these features can be used while in areas with WiFi, a wireless networking signal provided by the location you are at, or be accessed by the use of a mobile broadband card. These cards can come built in to the computer or be purchased later and added internally or externally via a USB connection.
Laptops have freed people from the desk and allowed the information of the world to be at your finger tips no matter where you are in the world.

We sometimes become so unfortunate that we get to experience awful accidents. This is not really the position that most people would really exchange for; however, we can make this situation less painful by getting the right medicines to help make our sufferings less traumatic. When we are in the hospital, we would miss important things which we usually do at home or in the office. One of those things is being up to date with our assignments or work. Thus, it would be hard for us to use our laptops when we can barely stand or sit in front of the computer. But with the portable laptop table, anything is already possible.
A laptop bed stand is the aid that people can use when they can’t sit and stand well since they are sick or have some body movement limitations. They can place their laptops on top of the desk and not have any problems that it will fall off. These portable laptop trays are made with strong adhesive fabrics that will hold the laptop bottom in place. Some designs come with laptop bands to secure it in case you are moving too much on top of your bed. You can also not worry when you accidentally toppled it off because of the assurance that these products will be in their position no matter what.
What is another reason that makes this a good item for the bed ridden? Portable bed trays are adjustable. Their legs can easily be folded in a position that you desired them to be. If you want to slip your legs under the sheets, you just lift the entire table and they will lock themselves automatically. If you want them to rest on your chest area, you can just pull them towards you. No need to settle it over a pillow just so you can balance your laptop while you are typing.
We know that being in the hospital makes one lazy so you would want to lie down while you are scrolling on the keyboard. Well guess what? You can with the use of this laptop tray. You can position your back and head with some pillows and elevate the table of your laptop. You are in a very comfortable position while using your laptop.
These products were not made just to suit the desires of those who can walk, sit and stand well. They were also made for the benefit of those who needs more help when it comes to using their laptops. If you are stuck on your bed and got nothing to do, purchase a portable laptop table and start typing away!

Hence, Meteor.js framework was born which fulfilled much of the requirements of modern developers. Meero.js not only provides advanced features but also has good documentation and learning resources.
1) Full-Stack Solution:
MEAN stack is just an instance of using a combination of technologies (MongoDB, Angular.js, Express.js and Node.js) and it cannot be called a framework. When using MEAN stack, developers are required to perform synchronization between Node.js and MongoDB as well as between Express.js and Angular.js.
On the other hand, Meteor offers a full-stack solution for developing and deploying web applications. Meteor comes bundled with several built-in features, such as reactive templates, automatic CSS and JS minification on the production server and hot code reload. Its cloud platform, Galaxy, is quite powerful for deploying, scaling and monitoring client applications. It also offers useful client-side technologies, including templates, helpers and events.
2) Development Ecosystem:
Meteor allows using the same code on the front-end and the back-end as well as for mobile and web applications. It prevents developers from requiring to install and configure different libraries, module managers, APIs, drivers and more.
4) Front-end Solution:
Meteor offers Blaze.js, a front-end development framework. Though, it is not an advanced framework, it offers some good features. But, Meteor also integrates with popular modern front-end frameworks like Backbone.js in order to yield better results.
Meteor offers isomorphic APIs that communicate between front-end and back-end. This allows developers to handle client-server management and server-session management with ease. Data communication between client and server happens automatically without having to write any boilerplate code.
5) Database Integration:
6) Live Reload:
Another prominent feature of Meteor.js is its integrated live-browser reloading. Whenever there are any development changes to make on the front-end, it automatically reloads the live web page. Live reloading also allows refreshing only the required DOM elements on the web page without making an entire page to reload in spite of any dependent changes to data on the back-end or front-end.
7) Custom Package Manager:
One can use NPM modules (98,000+ modules) with Meteor but it has also got its own custom Package Manager which features the necessary NPM functionalities and some additional functionalities. Meteor’s official repository of Meteor packages named as atmosphere.js features more than 2,600 smart packages.
Meteor has a built-in package to handle pre-processing and custom user authentication for Email, Facebook, Twitter, Google and more. Moreover, it also comes with requisite packages for popular frameworks like Backbone.js, Bootstrap and jQuery.
Mobile development with Meteorjs offers support for apps through Cordova phonegap integration. You can easily develop and deploy Android and iOS apps.
To sum up, the Meteor ecosystem has an isomorphic API (application programming interface) which links together all the components within the Meteor ecosystem as well as integrates with third-party packages, tools and managers. Moreover, you have a choice to deploy Meteor apps using Meteor or any other service provider. You can also deploy your Meteor apps to your own server as well.

The idea of Laptop came as early as the late 1960 with the Dynabook, but this Tablet PC was mainly for children.
There was no real commercial incentive to develop a truly portable computer, (and it was thought to be unpractical in any case), so, it was not until much later, with new developments in transistors and processors, that the laptop was considered as something more than a child’s toy.
It was in the early 80s that the first truly portable computer was developed, the Osborne 1 did not have any batteries, (it had to be plugged in), but at least the data and computer could be transported.
A couple of years later, in 1982, the Compaq computers were released.
It is widely accepted that the Compaq was not much better than the Osborn 1 but because it was using the new popular MS-DOS operating system, (used on most IBM computers at the time), it proved an instant success.
A year latter Epson announced the first truly portable computer with a nickel battery. The Epson was more like an advanced calculator with only 80 characters displayed at any one time.
The Compass 1101 also introduced around the same time is credited for giving us the, now familiar, design of the laptop computer with the screen folded shut over the keyboard.
In 1984 the Gavilan SC and the Sharp PC-500 entered the market, with the Gavilan been the first to introduce the concept of laptop, (and a basic pointing device).
1984 also saw the arrival of the Kyocera Kyotronic 85, it was small and offered many applications such as a word processor, a modem or Spreadsheet and it was very popular indeed.
By the end of the 1980s many laptop manufacturers had developed fairly similar machines. All about ranging from the size of an A4 page to an A3. Most notably the NEC Ultralite, the Cambridge Z88 and the IBM PC Convertible. The Compaq LTE introduced the concept of a portable hard drive, (until that time the operating system was stored on ROM and Floppy drives were used).
By the beginning of the 1990s the look and feel of the laptop was defined by the Apple computers, (built in trackball, keyboard and Palm rest). Not to be outdone the IBM Thinkpad 700C introduced the TrackPoint a year later.
Since the mid-90’s only technology has improved the laptop computers. Longer lasting batteries as well as huge hard drives now make the Laptop a serious challenger for the desktop.
