As I prepare to move into the Rialta the one lingering annoyance has been finding mobile internet. T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint have all nixed their unlimited data plans (one of them still does unlimited but heavily throttles after 10gb, the others charge after 10gb, and 10gb is like a day of usage for me!)
Can anyone recommend great mobile internet solutions? A guy at work recommended Clear:
Hey Tynan! When are you going to post your complete 2012 gear update?! I am sure I am not the only one waiting!! Thanks,Annie in NM
Good fortune? The fact is
The more that you practice,
The harder you sweat,
The luckier you get.
I've looked everywhere around here (Austin) but cannot find a good Rialta. Are there any comparable class B's that would have most of the perks?
I watched the cars zoom by, trying to forget the cold in my bare hand.
As a part of an experiment, I was testing to see if I was more likely to be picked up if I removed my hat and gloves.
The answer: Yes
A bald guy in a van drove by, and made a forward motion with his eyes, looking behind me and then back at me.
This post is inspired by and a response to Tynan's Creators and Assemblers article:
For a long time I thought creating came from construction - the physical application of materials to form an object of value. I thought that in order for me to consider myself a creative individual, I would have to learn carpentry, electronics, coding… Because the way I saw it, there’s only three careers a person can have.
First is to perform a service. Like a lawyer who shares his legal advice, or a dentist who cleans teeth. It takes a long time to develop the skills to become professional, and I don’t have time to look that far in advance. So this leaves only two options: building a product, or to buy and resell products.
Buying and reselling is a great way to make money. Resellers find things low in price and people willing to pay a higher price. Basically, he is the connection between the buyer and the seller. I wouldn’t mind doing this - its a legitimate way to make money, but I can’t shake the thought that the buyers and sellers don’t actually need middlemen if they can find each other.
I know that I want to identify myself as a creator.
I plan on flying into Texas around St Patricks day in March, and eventually driving down to South Padre. What city do you guys recommend? Dallas, Houston, or San Antonio?
I don't know if this has been covered all ready but I was just wondering what other blogs people read besides this one? I'd love to know What Tynan reads also.
My friend Greg has been trying to sell this RV for a few months and it'll only be at this price, $2500, for a few more days before he decides to restore it to resale for a bigger profit. Though I haven't seen the RV in person, I think it's a cool deal. It's got a serious solar/electric package nice enough to run a recording studio inside. Though it's not SUPER stealthy, it's unique and may have enough headroom for tall guys and looks very roomy; I like the all-glass view from the cockpit. It needs some work, but he says he's got all the parts needed to fix it.http://eklektro.net/76gmc_solar-studio23.html
I'd like to ask your opinion on two somewhat related things.
If you have any knowledge of Japan: I'm heading there for a trip of undetermined length on november 27th. Going for no reason other than a strong urge to explore the country again. Probably going to be there for 2 months+ until I decide where to go next. I realize that theres already a post asking for recommendations, but my stay is longer and of a different season, so perhaps additional thoughts come to mind? I have to say its been strange shopping for cold weather clothes on a tropical island that kind of ignores winter.
While packing I'm looking at each possession to decide whether its worth it drag it around every day for who knows how long. A question popped up as I was doing this:
If you were going on a trip be it long or short, foreign or familiar, , and for some unmentioned, absolute reason you had to choose between taking your laptop/tablet or camera(s), what do you choose? And why? Its possible a smart phone nullifies this somehow. I'm partial to leaving the camera as I tend not to look at my pictures much once Ive taken them, but at the same time my macbook is kind of heavy and might end up simply as a distraction from my new surroundings. I find it difficult. Do you?
