Fun fact - Superman and Batman are both voiced by the same guy

You got to watch all the Superhero café clips - they're too awesome. - they made a Doctor Who one recently btw

To be fair, it wouldn't be a bad thing if a superhero owned a network that he/she controlled and had very low, if any, potential to be watched/viewed by state governments - cough nsa cough cough.

Tiring and exhausting to make, but Batman can do anything he wants, well, because he's BATMAN.

Basically you jailbreak an iPhone so it works like an Android. Come on over. iPhones are for 14 yo girls.

When ever I hear/read about Michael Carter-Williams , the first person that comes to mind is Vince Carter's mother.

I absolutely love being ripped at work when I do what the boss says and then six months later doesn't like it and blames me for it (I need to record meetings from now on) and on top of that receive blame for what others have done.

I have no problem owning up to my mistakes and never have and whenever I've made an error in my current role I own up to it, but I absolutely despise being blamed for following the instructions that have been laid out to me.

When the scope of a project shifts, without informing all elements of the team, that shouldn't fall on the person who is/was left out the loop completely unaware of what was/is being done.

Which email should I use to create an account for resumes? Can't keep using the one I have now.

Which is more professional?:

@outlook or @live?


All Gmail accounts are taken and I heard it isn't professional anymore to use Hotmail.

Who the hell minused this post? I agree with you. And while I'm.not working yet similar situations arise with school and community projects which just boil my blood. You should record the meetings. But even then that might just piss off the seeming cunt of a boss you have. I empathazise for you.

Try using Yahoo if you are not comfortable with those 2. Not sure what you mean by Gmail accounts all taken, can't you add like an underscore/numbers or abbreviate certain parts of your name?

I don't know adding all that stuff seems a little unprofessional, no? I would use underscores but they aren't allowed on Gmail. Maybe I'll try Yahoo then.

I use a dot and a number in my Gmail address. I think it's fine, as long as it's not an excessive number. By unprofessional email addresses, I guess those would be the ones with funny names like tankforwiggins22@gmail.com or something.

Just my 2 cents I'm not a recruiter/employer or anything lol

Also, I was hoping someone can help me out with my Wifi. I recently switched to Rogers. The Ethernet is completely fine, and is giving me about 30/5 speed. I expect the Wifi to give me around 15/3. It works well some of the times, but other times, the speed will drop. At times, the speed is below 1 mbps which is unacceptable.

This happens quite often, and often times, I can't even use my Internet. For example I can't even log into the Playstation Network for PS3. The way my house is set up, it is not possible to connect the devices using wire.

I already tried changing my Wifi channel, have a secure password, etc. Any suggestions?

^Is it a Rogers router? My friend has one and he told me it sucks. When the dude came to install everything he flat out told my friend that it isn't all that good.

I think my buddy cant get a solid wifi connection in his basement

1. Do a hard reset on your modem. There should be a reset button that you can press with a pen.

2. Update the drivers on your network interface card and make sure your OS is updated.

3. If you are too far away from your router when using the Wi-fi you might need a wireless extender to boost the signal.

4. Replace the router. Or you can buy your own router and bridge it to the Rogers modem. You can do this by connecting an Ethernet cable into your LAN port of your Rogers modem and connecting the other end into the store bought modem's WAN port. Then you can disable the Wi-Fi on your Rogers's modem by going into router settings.

Im assuming you got one fo the newer modems? Yeah the wifi is horrible. Best thing to do is just buy a router from bestbuy for like 75 bucks and run your wifi through that and disable it from your modem/router rogers uses. ALSO, if you are renting, consider a cheaper one if you do this. Go with the Cisco router

The router that's built into the Rogers modem is absolute ass.

Get your own router and get them to disable the one within the modem.

Depending on how important internet is in your household and your budget, I recommend this one.

R6300 | WiFi Routers | Networking | Home | NETGEAR

I have the Ultimate package from Rogers. They advertise a 150 Mbps with a wired connection. I've regularly gotten 175-250 Mbps since getting this router.

Fucking beauty.
