People frequently ask me for advice on how to quit a job, maybe because I’m a writer. But it’s only as hard as you make it. It’s possible to quit a job graciously and not destroy references you might need someday. Here’s how to quit a fast food job.
Retail is taking a beating right now, thanks to online sales and an overall economy that’s just acting a bit weird. Best Buy had its struggles in the past, so that leads to a fair question. Can Best Buy survive?
I can see both sides of the argument.
The Apple II was one of the first mass-market computers, one of three released in 1977. It proved successful, and Apple had a hard time following up on it. The Macintosh was the third attempt, and it eventually proved successful. Apple II vs Macintosh ended up not being much of a comparison. But it took a while for the Mac to catch on. Here’s what set the Mac apart from its widely successful predecessor.
The American Flyer 594 animated track gang is an interesting accessory. A.C. Gilbert released it in 1946 and 1947. Lionel reissued it in 2006. Although Gilbert marketed it for its S gauge trains, you can easily use it with 3-rail O gauge track. I’m actually disappointed that Lionel didn’t say how when it reissued this accessory.
What about scale, you ask? The figures are about 1½ inches tall, so they are much closer to O scale than S scale. So there’s no need to worry about that. It looks fine with O gauge trains. For that matter, it looks equally good with prewar or postwar O gauge trains. And it doesn’t look bad with S gauge trains either.
Baseball card sizes varied over the years, but if you’re asking how big are baseball cards, you’re probably thinking of the most common size. The most common size for baseball cards is 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, the same size as a wallet-size photograph.
Computers in 1980 were rather different from computers of today. They could do the fundamental things a computer of today can do, but by modern standards, they were much smaller and less powerful. In the mid 1980s, Commodore Grace Hopper said we had the Model T, computing-wise. In 1980, we weren’t quite at the Model T yet.
Still, computers in 1980 were interesting. We’d never seen anything like them.
The IBM PC and Commodore 64 were introduced about a year apart. The PC came out in 1981. The 64 followed in 1982. They were two of the most important machines of the 1980s, and both have long legacies. Here’s the story of the Commodore 64 vs IBM PC.
Although the two machines share a legacy, for the most part they existed in different worlds.
People frequently ask me how long to study for CISSP. Unfortunately it’s hard to give a set answer for that, but I can tell you how to figure out how long you need to study for it. That’s almost as good.
Don’t believe anyone who tells you they can get you ready in x number of days or weeks or even months. No one can know where you are relative to what you need to know to pass that test.
What does IBM do now? What does IBM make now? IBM’s days as the dominant PC maker ended long ago, but IBM is still #32 on the Fortune 500 list.
Setting up a Christmas village can be a fun way to decorate for the holidays. Some people set up rather elaborate and impressive displays. Here are some Christmas village set up tips from a model railroader.
Some people build villages with hundreds of buildings. Not everyone has that the space or budget for something like that. Even with a modest collection, you can set up a memorable village. Here’s how.
