Website Generates HTML Code for Tables

I wrote a blog entry in which a table was the best way to organize some data. I realized the standard, free WordPress editor doesn’t contain a table tool, and tables are cumbersome to create with HTML code. Fortunately, the website Tables Generator helped me create the table for free, and, with minimal editing using the WordPress visual editor, the table appears like I intended.

Do Android Users Dream of Electric Rain? An App May Help You Get to Sleep Faster

Forgive my blog entry’s title. It’s a nod to the science fiction author Philip K. Dick’s story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, from which the movie Blade Runner was adapted.

I wanted to alert readers to Relax Rain – Nature sounds, a wonderful app on the Android which has helped me get to sleep faster. It allows you to choose from a variety of rain-themed sounds. Select the one you like and, as long as you are not on call, turn your phone to Airplane Mode to save power and avoid notifications which might interrupt your sleep.

The application’s developer has other nature-themed sound applications. I haven’t tried any others.

I searched the iTunes store for this app, but I did not find it. There are apps there which look similar. I haven’t tried those. If you like an iOS or Blackberry or Windows app for this purpose, let me know.

Low Tech Support Tip – Label Your Cables

A client told me he could not connect to the Internet. When I arrived at the house, I saw that the ethernet cable was not plugged into his laptop. I connected the cable, rebooted the computer and, voila, Internet. Later, we unplugged everything and connected wirelessly. I did not think to figure out why he was not previously connecting wirelessly, so I that’s a mistake on my part.

But I did do this part right: I put a label on his laptop above the ethernet port, a label on the wireless router above its ethernet port and a label on the ethernet cable itself.
