working on computer keyboard

How much would someone have to pay you to spend 24 hours constantly monitoring their computer? How much would they have to pay you to carry it around everywhere you go for 36 hours straight just to see if it might require your knowing touch at 12:15a.m., 3:19a.m., and again at 5:26a.m.?


Believe it or not, 36 hours is the average amount of time it takes to perform even the most simplest of software repairs. For instance, in order to correctly re-install an Operating System, there is much work to be performed and much time to be spent. The first task would be to backup all of the user’s data. Depending on how many GigaBytes of data the user has, this simple process can take six to ten hours. Then, once the data is backed up, the hard drive would need to be properly erased (zeroed out). Again, depending on the amount of data on the drive and the erasing method employed (secure versus quick and non-secure), this process can take anywhere from three to 48 hours. Keep in mind that during both of these processes – the backup and the erasing – one must stay vigilant for errors, and any user intervention. And if power to the computer is lost, you’d have to start the erasing procedure all over again.

What to do if you’ve been stung by a scorpion in Panama PDF Print E-mail
Panama News - Useful Information
Wednesday, 22 August 2012 11:42

scorpion-stingThere are 16 species and subspecies of scorpions in Panama. Of these 16 species none have a deadly venomous sting. However, their stings can still be painful, worrying and life threatening to some. Infants and those already frail in health can be affected far worse by a scorpion’s sting, and they are likely to need hospitalization if stung. Generally a person in good health should recover without a visit to the hospital - with some acceptions (when in doubt check it out). 

  What to do if you’ve been stung:

- Take a single dose of antihistamine (benadryl) and analgesic (acetaminophen). 
- Wash the affected area with soap and water.
- Ice it for several hours .
- Antihistamine, corticosteroid, and analgesic ointments can help ease pain.

Sierra female dogSierra is a very loyal, very loving, smart medium size dog about 1-1/2 years old. She was found on the beach, very hungry and wandering.

She has a very soft burnt umber coat. She is very healthy, spayed and has had all her shots. She also would make a wonderful watch dog because her hearing is very acute and she responds immediately. She prefers to be an inside dog and is well behaved in the house. She is beautiful inside and out and she deserves a healthy, loving forever home.
