Something to know about the 'hive' vice the sole man approach


you appear to have some sway with the experts. there is something inherent in the angst that some experts express about the team approach, which happens in india and phillipines. That is different from the American Tech cowboy ..seems that fixya will go with satisfaction issues, before rewarding one or the other approach. your thoughts?

I don't have any sway with experts, other than I've been here a while and while speaking my mind from time to time I haven't compromised my principles of "Fair Play" and "My business ethics".

A lot has been argued about the 'team' or even 'sweat house' method of income earning in some other countries. FixYa has stated they are not aware of any such practice. Still, I've seen some of the experts who were thought to represent these 'entities' go away, gone.

Yes, FixYa, as do I with my customers, place a high value on customer satisfaction. FixYa firmly believes that a no questions asked refund policy is the only way to do business with its business model. I believe this is a reflection of the owner/founder of FixYa and his/her's business principles. Since they are nearly the same as mine, I have no dispute. I have also had my work refunded and its not pleasant and it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

A really long long time ago a businessman and member of Kiwanis said to me while I was still in my 20s and working in my second store front (last one too!) that: "You make it on some and you loose it on others." This was a philosophy that when practiced helps you to suffer the losses and indecencies of being had. It happens. I developed a thick skin and rather than be a free provider to the poor, I work within effective non profits in my community to get my "good feeling all over" for being a nice guy. Its landed me on the board of directors in the last 20 years and even though it feels like a second and unpaid job to be on these boards, I know we are doing 'good work'.

Having served in southeast Asia, and in Vietnam, I would study the practice of Buddhism later to better understand what God the enemy had been praying to. I subscribe today to the philosophy of Karma. Simply put, What goes around comes around.

Don't know if this answers your question or not. A really cool philosopher I came to know, he's a psychiatrist by the way, stated: "We go through life earning income to provide shelter and purchase food to recharge are bodies with energy. That life is the pursuit of the gain, and loss of energy, in that pursuit. With energy being so precious, when we run out... we die. With that in mind then, why waste energy?" Anger takes the most energy away from us; of all our emotions we express or may express. It makes sense then to be cognizant of this and judicious in what 'things' and 'events' we choose to indulge our energy... and particularly our anger. A friend of mind calls it, picking the 'good fight' and "fighting the good fight".

Back to your point. How do I feel about the apparent indulgence of teams on FixYa. I agree with FixYa that this is not a good thing and leads to Expert dissatisfaction and is a composite of Expert Retention. As the business, FixYa, is burdened with collecting the 'proof' in order to put an end to all this. That takes some time. As a consultant to business in my area of the world, I focus on security and have done so for about 10 years now. Before you can prosecute you really have to have all the facts you can have in hand. Then, before you pull the plug on the culprits you need to have a real plan on hand to find and squelch this activity when it resurfaces again. This is why it appears to take so long for FixYa to move on this issue.

Today, compared to last Spring, there is a huge difference at FixYa.

Just so you know, FixYa to me is a very very part time thing. When I have a lull and can breath a bit, I go online and get my 30 or so and then casually log in in the evenings using my laptop in the living room. When some problem lands squarely in my zone I jump on it and help out. When some one is stuck in a dilemma and needs help even though this will only earn me a Helpful, I help out there too. What goes around comes around.

I also enjoy the Lounge quite a bit as it is a way to communicate with others on a global basis. This is a good way to learn and learn from others.

How to Buy The Right Shoes for men?

I'll review number of shoe types for you guys! First - the wing tip;
For Work: Not all wing tips look right with suits. But this pair, with its closed-lace construction, slim leather soles, and rich brown patina, could hold its own with most any three-piece.
For the Weekend: A chunkier toe and a rugged sole are the stuff of casual wing tips and many an action-packed weekend. And if the leather picks up a scuff or two, so much the better.
Seconds, The Oxford:
For Work: You can't get much more formal than a finely wrought pair of black oxfords, especially when the toe looks like this: not too pointy, not too round, and not remotely square.
For the Weekend: The lighter the shade of brown and the softer the hand of the leather (or, in this case, suede), the better your oxfords will look with jeans, khaki chinos or beat-up cords.
And last type is the the Boot:
For Work: Opt for black (inherently more dressy than brown), and keep in mind, the finer the construction, the more polished they'll look. Speaking of: Keep them shiny.
For the Weekend: Look for something unstructured like desert boots (or another spongy-soled variation thereof). They're just the kind of lightweight knockabouts that downtime requires.

My computer is hanging too much infact i hav a antivirus also,what to do????

take it to a local PC expert and have them clean it. any tool you buy over the internet or over the counter may not fix your problem at this point - I charge $79.95

I run 10 different products to remove viruses, I also boot the PC into a separate windows hive from CD so I can search the C:\hive without experiencing locked files. your PC shop should do this for yo - if not send it to me.

Chat termination sequence

When I have ended a Live Chat session the tunnel is just lost although the Chat Window is still up. You have to go to your Profile Page look down the page to the header My Chat Sessions, then find the one you were just in and under that click the additional link, My Chat Session. You will see a full transcript.

On another note however, Lauren intends to purchase a Live Chat and as an expert engage in a Live Chat. She will then post to the Lounge and include Screen shots of both sides of the session so we can all then debate what to improve.

I've endlessly suggested our Live Chats initiate a IM window, probably MS Messenger, but I want the company to look hard at Google Talk, as Google is a major investor of FixYa the company.

Does that help you, or not?
