I love computers and technology! Assembling computers’ hardware, installing software and performing setups have always been favorite hobbies! I have spent hundreds of hours gaming on PC and still do when I get free time! Building powerful computers for work at home or for entertainment purposes has led to use those machines as gaming computers too! Although I feel guilty every time I fire up a game instead of spending more time investing and blogging, I enjoy gaming very much and gaming helps getting away from stressful work such as online gambling!
My blog occasionally hosts reviews of new products that came in my possession and use either for work or for entertainment. Investing online and using computers for many hours per day makes it necessary to learn a lot of technological stuff, in order to always be one step ahead of the competition. Living off internet most investors and gamblers often meet difficulties and face problems when installing new software in their computers and flood forums with questions! From time to time I find an interesting question that needs an answer from someone sharing the same interest and share my experience or knowledge. I mostly though get inspired by problems I myself run into and search extensively online to find a solution. Tech savvy investors are hard to come by, since most of their work involve building new trading strategies and finding new ways to make money! However programming becomes soon a necessity and may be the reason of failure.
Since we do not live 24 hours indoors, mobile technology is essential to every gambler or investor. Mobile phones and notebook computers are often found at coffee shops and airports in front of people checking out their emails or their investments. Since I manage and run a lot of websites alone, I need to be online wherever I go, so mobile technology is something I have invested in. Publishing new blog posts, replying to important emails while checking out stock quotes and financial news all belong in my daily routine.
Since upgrading my Windows 7 desktop PC, I decided to go with Windows 8. The negative reviews and comments suggested I should steer away from the latest version of the Microsoft’s operating system, especially when deciding to install Windows 8 on a desktop computer with no touch-screen monitors. On the other hand, I didn’t want to setup (and buy) Windows 7 on the brand new motherboard, which is expected to last 3 to 5 years. So, I opted for a fresh install of Windows 8 on my quad monitor desktop PC. It turns out that setting up Windows 8 with...read more
My Logitech mouse is not working perfectly lately and I have decided to replace it with a new Logitech G600 mouse. The old mouse is a Logitech G500 with symptoms of the so-called “double click problem”. In brief, the mouse responds with a double-click each time you single-click. Well, maybe not every time, but I estimate half of the clicks are regarded as double-clicks. That can be disastrous and may cost dearly when playing poker or even worse when investing in my case. It’s also quite annoying when surfing the internet, highlighting...read more
One of my favorite video games has always been SimCity. The latest installment, SimCity 5 or Sim City 2013, allows players to build a gambling city, and by that I mean a city that focuses on gambling. The city’s main revenue is expected to be coming from casinos that players build. The feature is called “specialization” and it includes 5 more areas of expertise, like mining, drilling, trading, electronics and culture. As I am quite familiar with gambling in the real world, it would be fun to try my skills and actually manage an entire...read more
