3 Ways A Professional Locksmith Can Open Your Safe

Posted by on 8:18 am in Articles, Business | 0 comments

Whether you inherited your safe from a late relative, a newly-purchased property, or even from a friend, it’s likely that you have no way of opening it. You’ve spent hours researching DIY safe-cracking methods online, but you’re still unable to open your safe—just like the internet user who recently found himself in a similar situation. Instead of trying to guess your safe’s password, hire a professional locksmith. Your locksmith is likely to use one of these three methods to crack your safe: Lock Drilling Although television shows may have taught you that the best way to open a safe is by holding a stethoscope to its combination lock, your locksmith will tell you that drilling your safe is likely the easiest way to unlock it (aside from knowing the combination or possessing the key). For most modern safes, locksmiths will drill an area of the safe that allows them to peer inside the locking mechanism with a borescope—a thin camera or lens that can be used to see inside small areas. Once a locksmith can see the locking mechanisms inside your safe, they can manipulate them into the unlocked position. In most cases, locksmiths won’t drill directly into the locking bolt due to the presence of a hardplate. Hardplates are designed to destroy nearly every conventional drill bit and are commonly made of tungsten carbide and cobalt alloys. However, if the safe that you own is on the lower end of the quality spectrum, then your locksmith may be able to drill straight through the locking bolt to unlock your safe. Drilling a safe with even the strongest drills and bits will take a significant amount of time. If your locksmith tells you that drilling will be the most viable option for your safe, then you may want to buy a pair of earplugs—it may take them anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours to drill open your safe. Key Impressioning If your safe’s only locking mechanism is a basic lock cylinder, then you’re in luck—your locksmith may be able to create an impression of the key that’s needed to open your safe. Key impressioning is the process of creating a key while using only the lock’s tumblers as a reference. To create a key impression, your locksmith will use an impressioning tool, files, and a blank key. Your locksmith will hold the blank key with their impressioning device and turn the key inside your lock a few times. This action creates indentations along your blank key where the tumblers are positioned. Your locksmith will then file the indentations until the blank key roughly matches the shape of the original key. Once the impressioning is created, your locksmith can simply hand you the makeshift key to use for all future purposes. However, to avoid being locked out of your safe in the future, you should make a few copies of the impressioned key. Torching If your locksmith is unable to drill your safe, create a key impression, or use any other method to open your safe, then they will torch it—with your approval, of course. Torching requires burning a hole into your safe. This opening process will ultimately ruin your safe, but at least you’ll finally discover what items the safe so thoroughly protected. Similarly to drilling, torching a...

Animated Voicemails And Other New And Upcoming Advances In Voicemail Services

Posted by on 8:22 am in Articles, Business | 0 comments

Voicemail answering services can make your small home office look like a large operation, they can help you keep in touch with clients as you travel, and they can help keep your office organized. To improve these functions, developers are constantly working on new ways to improve business answering services. Here is a look at four of the advancements that have recently been released or that are about to hit the market: Voicemail-to-Text Services As a busy professional, you don’t always have the time to dial into your voicemail and listen to your messages, and in some cases, picking up your smartphone to check your auditory messages could even be considered rude. Luckily, a new voicemail-to-text service means that you can get your voicemails while just discretely glancing at your phone. With this service, you don’t even have to call into an answering service to check your messages. Instead, your messages are dispatched straight to your phone. If you want to hear the messages later to pick up on nuance and tone, you can dial into your voicemail service and listen when you have extra time. Visual Voicemail Services Visual voicemails were originally rolled out for personal use, but they have creative business applications as well. To use visual voicemail, you record your message as normal using your voicemail service. Then, you choose a cartoon character and a background theme, and you send the message to the desired recipient. When they receive the message, it shows up like a tiny talking cartoon on their screen. Businesses can use visual voicemails for marketing messages, announcements, or anytime they want to reach clients about something new and exciting. Visual messaging is still in its infancy stages, but eventually, it may be possible to integrate brands or logos into the visual message. Industry-Specific Developments Leaders in the business phone industry understand that different industries have different needs for their phone services, and to that end, answering service providers are constantly working on industry-specific applications and solutions. Eager to design services that appealed to lawyers, one phone company engineered the following applications: On-demand recording features to make note taking and call recording easier Call-forwarding capabilities that allow lawyers to answer or make calls from their cell phones without giving out or revealing their personal phone numbers Voicemail to email services that allow lawyers to read messages without stopping to take the call Call-logging features that make it easy to bill clients for hours Regardless of which industry you are in, you should be able to find an answering service that meets the specific needs of your industry. Talk with a sales rep about your specific needs so that he or she can give you advice on which services can meet those needs and improve your business. Overseas Call and Message Forwarding If you use a voice over internet provider (VoIP) for your business phone system, you can easily forward your business calls to anywhere in the world. With overseas call and message forwarding, your clients simply call your regular business number, and the call is instantly forwarded to wherever you are, as long as you have cell phone service. This service means that you never have to miss an urgent message, and it allows you to travel for business or pleasure while still...

Are You Naturally Reserved? Here’s How To Hail A Taxi Without Making A Scene

Posted by on 8:01 am in Articles, Business | 0 comments

It might seem impossible to hail a taxi if you are naturally reserved. While other people enjoy whistling and barking like a lunatic, that method of calling a cab doesn’t appeal to you. So, what can you do to get the driver’s attention? Here are a few suggestions that won’t leave you jumping up and down, out of breath, and slightly embarrassed. There’s an App for That Believe it or not, there are a few phone apps available that will help you hail a taxi. They are especially useful if you regularly need assistance because you have to purchase the app. Both passengers and drivers can benefit from this app. Here’s how: Passengers – The passenger – you – use the app to signal your location to taxi drivers. You get a notification when a taxi is on its way to pick you up. You don’t have to wait long for the taxi. And when the taxi nears, you don’t have to exert yourself to catch the driver’s notice, either. Drivers – Taxi drivers who use the app receive notifications when someone is in need of a ride. They then choose whether or not to accept the request. If accepted, a notification is sent to the passenger. Drivers get the benefit of work, even during slow times of the day. Only Hail an Empty Taxi Cab Silly as this bit of advice may seem, a major reason for unsuccessful hailing is that people don’t know when a cab is occupied or not. There are two main ways drivers indicate whether or not they are taking passengers. They are: Flags at Daytime – A flag during the day means the taxi cab is empty. If the flag is down, don’t bother trying to stop the vehicle. Lights at Night – If the light on top of a cab is turned on, it means the driver is seeking passengers. When the light is off, the taxi is already full. Show Taxi Drivers That You are Ready to Pay A simple gesture such as pulling out your wallet goes a long way. This indicates that you are ready and able to pay for taxi services. When dealing with money, keep this in mind: Cash – Holding dollar bills in your hand is an effective way to catch a driver’s attention. You don’t need to pull out big bills, though. You don’t want to risk catching everyone’s attention! Card – You can pay for your taxi ride with a debit or credit card. Having cash isn’t required. Be Bold Enough to Step off the Curb You don’t have to go far into the road, but stepping off the curb indicates your eagerness for a cab. The difference between a few steps is the difference between blending in or standing out: Blend In – You will go unnoticed if you casually remain on the sidewalk. Stand Out – Stepping toward the vehicle is an assertive way to catch a driver’s attention. Show Confidence You might feel awkward making excessive gestures. Just remember, you can make confident gestures without seeming obnoxious. Making eye contact with the driver is a simple way to show confidence. Try assertive alternatives to these other actions: Flailing Arms – Instead of flailing your arms and jumping around, try boldly stepping...

4 Tips For Moving Your Art Collection

Posted by on 1:41 pm in Articles, Business | 0 comments

When you’re planning a move, especially a long distance move, figuring out how best to pack and transport valuable items can be challenging. Collections of paintings and sculptures can pose special problems of their own. Many works of art are delicate and easy to damage. Here are a few tips for getting your art collection safely packed and loaded onto the moving truck, so that it arrives at your new home in the same great shape that it was in at your old home. Arrange an Appraisal When you’re moving a valuable art collection, you should always insure it in case of damage. You never know what might happen while you’re in transit, even if you’re very careful. You can purchase a rider on your homeowner’s insurance policy that will protect your artwork while you’re moving it, but first you need to know the exact value of your collection. You can find this out by hiring an appraiser. Even if you’ve had your art appraised in the past, if it’s been a while, it’s a good idea to have it done again. You should be certain that you’re collection is insured for its full value, which can change over time. You can find an appraiser in the local area through a local art gallery or art dealer. Consider Climate Control Whether you’re hiring movers or renting a truck from a company such as Elite Truck Rental to do the moving yourself, you should consider requesting a moving truck with climate control in the back, especially for a long distance move. The back of a moving truck can heat up to a pretty high temperature without air conditioning. Heat can be damaging to art work. Oil paintings in particular are very sensitive to heat. Once the temperature reaches more than 75 degrees, the paint can begin to crack and flake. Humid conditions can create moisture that can allow mold to grow or cause the paint to appear hazy. It doesn’t take a long time in extreme conditions to cause serious damage to your paintings. Sitting in the back of a rental truck for several hours in sweltering heat might be enough. A truck with a climate control for the back will help you avoid that problem. Pick Perfect Packing Material Before you put your precious paintings in any kind of box, you need to encase them in packing material to prevent damage. Bubble wrap is a common choice when it comes to packing material, and it’s definitely very protective. But if you’re going to use bubble wrap, make sure that you turn the wrap so that the bubbles face out, instead of facing in where they’ll touch the paint. Packing a painting with the bubbles facing inward can cause the wrap to stick to your painting and damage it. Unprinted newspaper is also a good packing material for paintings or sculptures. Don’t ever use old printed newspaper to wrap your art pieces, as the print could rub off on the artwork. Styrofoam packing peanuts are a good choice for boxes containing sculptures or fragile antiques. Cover Your Collection With Cardboard Cardboard is the material of choice to pack your artwork in while you’re moving it. It’s strong enough to protect the artwork while being simultaneously soft enough to provide it...

Turning Trash Into A Tool: Great Everyday Uses For Shredded Paper

Posted by on 1:24 pm in Articles, Business | 0 comments

A paper shredder is one the best ways to deal with the unwanted flyers and credit card offers that consistently plague your mailbox. However, when your paper shredder is full, don’t just empty it in the trash! You may not realize it, but you can use shredded paper in many useful ways. Some of these ways even save you money and time. For The Garden Shredded paper has a number of great application for your landscape and plant health. You can: mix shredded paper in with your compost. The paper will decompose with everything else and help better distribute oxygen throughout your pile, improving the quality of the final product. use the paper as a weed barrier in your flower beds. The next time you plant your flowers, lay a thick layer of shredded paper down before filling in the soil. The paper allows the root of your plants to grow well, but as the paper becomes wet, it prevents weed seeds from taking root, or growing up from existing roots. as a growth starter for seeds. Beans, peas, and watermelon will benefit from paper’s ability to hold moisture. You can mix it with potting soil to help give seeds a good start, or forgo the soil altogether when you start your seeds indoors before planting them outside.  use the shredded material in place of sawdust for keeping your strawberries and squash in good health. Strawberries tend to rot if they touch the ground, so a layer of paper will keep your strawberries safe as they ripen. as an insulating mulch for your trees and shrubs. A thick layer of paper will matte when wet, and the high water content will help maintain the temperature of the ground, protecting plant roots from sudden temperature changes in winter.  Adding paper to your garden soil also makes great food for earthworms. Worms are known to help improve your soil quality.  For Your Pets Do you have chickens, goats, or other small farm animals? You can bed their living space with paper instead of straw.

Just use it how you would use wood shavings, and clean it every once in a while to keep the cage clean and healthy for your pets. And, last but not least, in order to help your kitty litter go a little further, fill 50% of the box with paper, and use your regular litter for the rest.

Follow these steps to make your own: Mix the paper with grass clippings and other organic waste, like leaves or wood chips. Slightly moisten the mixture to make sure you can get a firm pack. Stuff the mixture into a flammable container, such as a cardboard oatmeal container, an empty paper towel roll, or something similar. Pack the mixture as tightly as possible. Place the rolls in the sun or another warm place to help them dry out. ...

Move To The Music: 3 Tips For Moving Your Piano To Your New Home

Posted by on 10:37 am in Articles, Business | 0 comments

Moving is always a chore, but most of the household goods that you’re going to need to pack up and deliver to the new place are at least easy to manage. Packing clothes, dishes, and tchotchkes into boxes is tedious, but not difficult. The problem comes when it’s time to move larger items, like furniture.  Figuring out how to get heavy and awkwardly shaped items from an old residence to a new one is difficult. And the piano has always been one of the most difficult items to move. They’re heavy, awkwardly shaped, and prone to scratches and other damage. If you’re stumped by trying to figure out how you’re going to move your piano, here are some tips that can help. Understand Your Piano If the piano is an heirloom or decoration piece, you may not know exactly what kind of piano it is. Pianos come in all kinds of sizes and shapes, and different pianos require different moving techniques, so it’s important to know what you’re dealing with before you begin the moving process. Most pianos that are found in homes can be divided into one of two different categories: vertical pianos or grand pianos. Within the vertical category, you can find spinet pianos and console, studio, or full size pianos. The spinet pianos are the smallest of the bunch, at a height of only 35 to 37 inches. These are the easiest pianos to move. The other vertical pianos range from 40 inches to 60 inches and are more complicated to move. Grand pianos include the petite grand, baby grand, medium grand, semi-concert grand, and concert grand. These pianos are all shaped similarly, with a horizontal soundboard instead of the upright soundboard that vertical pianos have. This horizontal soundboard makes the grand piano much wider and more awkwardly shaped than a vertical piano, and it takes even more special care to move a grand piano. Prepare Your Piano No matter what kind of piano you have, you’re going to want to wrap it up before you try to do any moving. It’s very easy to scratch the finish on a piano, and wrapping it up in protective material will help keep it from getting damaged in the doorways. You’ll need blankets and packing tape for this step. Start by closing and locking the keyboard cover and the lid to the piano’s soundboard. Cover the entire piano with several layers of blankets, using packing tape to keep them in place. A spinet piano can most likely be lifted by two or more people and carried carefully. However, if your piano is any other kind of vertical piano, you are going to need a dolly. Moving companies often have specially designed piano dollies with straps that you can rent. For a grand piano, you’ll probably need a skid board, and it may be necessary to unscrew and remove the bass leg of the piano in order to fit it through the doorway. Be sure to carefully wrap the removed leg in blankets for the move.  Once you have the piano wrapped and the equipment at the ready, you’re still not quite ready to move the piano. You’ll need to plan your pianos path from its spot in the house out the front door to the truck. Be sure...

Companies that need commercial furniture from places like DandROfficeWorks.com enjoy workstations will find that the evolution of the workstation is right on target with its needs and wants. As a matter of fact, commercial furniture designers do a lot of research before creating office workstations. The concept behind office furniture design is centered on providing work solutions. Features include: Open workspaces Tech-friendly Sustainability Adaptability User-friendly The Innovation of Panel-Free Workstations Workstations with canopies and screens allow for more practical use of the office real estate and greater diversity of workstation set-ups. It’s ideal for companies who are seeking more collaborative environments with flexibility and openness. Vertical poles define work areas, make data easily accessible to the user and support hang-on components.

How Secure is Your Website?

Posted by on 7:17 am in Articles, Business | 0 comments

Already, 2014 has been dubbed the “Year of the Hack” with Heartbleed still causing aftershocks weeks after it was initially reported. You don’t have to own a massive, high traffic website to have vulnerabilities. Hackers target sites just for fun, for revenge or to prove a point. Viruses via malware can happen to nearly anyone and any website. How secure is your online presence? The biggest risks are caused by: Employee use (and misuse) of networks Web server vulnerabilities Hosting service vulnerabilities The good news? You have total control over the last two risks and a good amount of control over the first. When You Open a Window By design, web servers open a portal between the world and your network. It’s up to you to put up the right “screen” to stay safeguarded. This can be done with: Regular server maintenance Proper coding (which dictates “window size”) Updates to web applications Limiting information which can go out the window Are You at Risk? Every website is at risk. A better question is how high of a risk are you facing? The term “web security” is a misnomer since it’s impossible — even (and sometimes especially) for government agencies — to be totally secure. There are two things in play: Public and internal influences. The fewer network resources of financial value you have, the higher your security, but that’s just one possible equation. Optimized web security happens when websites have the lowest risks: A web server with the latest updates and correct settings A web server with patched/updated applications A website with high coding standards A website with tight permissions A website and company with limited “controversies” Network resources with little financial value Those with the highest risks include: Companies with financial assets (i.e. credit card companies, those which collect vital information) Controversial websites Websites with complex codes Websites with outdated applications or updates Websites maintained by a company or department that’s outsourced or underfunded When Risks Run High The more “spotlight” your website gets, the more it will be tested from hackers and malware. The simplest web servers are the most secure, but that’s not always an option for some businesses. You might need complex applications (to run those complex sites) and these are naturally more complementary to security issues. If you have any of these three things, you’re more vulnerable: Numerous open ports Numerous services Numerous scripting languages There are more entry points, which means more opportunities to become a victim. Timing is Everything You probably invite your website visitors to do a number of things. Every time you offer a call to action (CTA), you’re opening yourself up for security risks. These can include: Logging in Creating an account Searching the site Filling out a form Loading a new page Using a shopping cart Increasing Security Improve your website security in one of two ways: Manual and automated. Manual management means staying on top of all new security issues. This requires a reputable programmer taking charge of all updates, reviewing applications, and having security professionals check the work of the programmers. Adding antivirus protection, better firewalls and other approaches can be part of this regimen. Automated management utilizes web scanning systems to constantly test equipment, codes and applications for known vulnerabilities. However, this approach will (and...

Buying and Selling Storage Auction Treasures

Posted by on 7:23 am in Articles, Business | 0 comments

Storage auctions are scheduled when a facility has unpaid and unclaimed units. These units are auctioned off to the highest bidder. Storage auctions are a great way to find hidden treasures for a fraction of the cost. Many people make a decent amount of money from selling the items found in purchased storage units in Kingsport, Tennessee. It just takes a lot of work and a huge leap of faith. Buying the unit No one is allowed to enter a unit that is up for auction. This makes it difficult to get a full assessment of what is inside. You have to analyze the items you can see and make an assumption of what is further inside. Ask yourself the following questions before placing a bid on a unit: Is everything boxed and labeled? Do larger items, such as furniture, look like they were taken care of? Do the larger items look modern or out of date? Are there any antiques? Are all of the items placed in the unit neatly or just tossed about? Is there a lot of dust? Here is how those questions can help: Though you cannot rely on a box’s label, it might give you an idea. You never know. If furniture looks like it was taken care of, then chances are, so are the things you cannot see. An organized unit show the previous owner took care of things because he or she had items worth taking care of. A lot of dust could mean that there is nothing in the unit worth the owner coming back for. Keep in mind, unless you see an item, buying a storage unit truly is a leap of faith. The above tips can help guide you, but are not always the rule when it comes to determining what might be inside the unit. Sorting and cleaning Now that you have purchased a storage unit, it is time to get to work. Pull everything out of the unit and go through all of the boxes. Organize everything putting similar items together. For example, make an area just for furniture and larger items. Use boxes for smaller items to help separate kitchen accessories, clothing, tools, and so on. Once organized, clean everything in preparation of selling. Toss any damaged items and donate items that are still decent, but will not necessarily sell. Researching After you have sorted through the items in the unit, it is time to start researching values. Conduct online searches, visit stores, and ask experts for help determining value. Selling the items It is important to not hold onto any of the items in the unit. In order to earn your money back, you have to sell the items fast. Holding onto items, waiting for a better payment will only add costs for storage. Here are some ways to sell the items you find in a storage unit: Clothing: Consignment shops and thrift stores Furniture: Consignment shops Antiques: Antique stores and consignment shops Electronics: eBay and Facebook yard sale sites Sports collectibles: Sporting stores or auction houses Develop your own website and create a storefront on it to sell your items. Craigslist is also a good place to list everything you are selling. Depending upon the items you find in the unit, consider having a...

DIY Tools: Is it Better to Rent or Buy?

Posted by on 7:23 am in Articles, Business | 0 comments

When it comes to home improvement, you can only do so much with the items you have in your toolbox. Many interior home improvement projects require small, specialized tools that you can either rent from a local tool library, borrow from a neighbor, or rent or buy at the nearest Chicago home improvement store or rental center. As you plan your next interior or exterior home improvement project, determine whether it’s in your long-term interest to rent or buy that next piece of equipment. Interior projects These five tools have a demonstrated place in the DIY toolkit and are worth the investment because you’ll use them over and over again: Cordless drill: A cordless drill can help you hang anything with confidence, so you can mount that garden hose, hang your art, or install new shelves and cabinets. Choose cordless so that you do not need to use extension cords or outlets to get the work done. Table saw: If you need to cut wood at home, a table saw makes it easy and safe to do so. This comes in handy for everything from deck board replacement to DIY woodworking projects. Circular saw: Portable circular saws can cut through wood, metal, ceramic, and stone if you have the right blade. Nail gun: A nail gun makes any finish project easier and much faster, which makes it a very useful investment. Orbital sander: This can help you remove paint to refinish that bookcase or prepare the deck for painting, saving you time and manual labor. Once you have one, you’ll regularly put it to use. When it comes to interior home improvement, these four tools are indeed handy — but better rented than purchased. Reciprocating saw: A must for demolition jobs, a reciprocating saw has little use after the demolition’s done. Rent if you need one. Flooring nailer: Likewise, a flooring nailer can only help with laying flooring. Floor sander: These are bulky, expensive and serve a limited (though invaluable) purpose. Concrete mixer: Rent a drum-style concrete mixer to pour interior cement, since you won’t want to store this limited-use tool. Exterior projects These three tools have a dedicated place in the garage: String trimmer: Whether you need to whack tall grass weeds or edge a garden bed, a string trimmer helps you get the work done quickly and easily. Buy once, use regularly to keep your yard and garden looking their best. Pressure washer: Once you spring for a pressure washer, you’ll love its many uses. Try it for hosing down the driveway during leaf season, removing exterior paint before a refinish, or washing your home exterior. Wood chipper – If you have a large yard, a wood chipper can be a good investment. By turning excess wood into mulch, you’ll be conserving resources and saving on garden mulch. Since these four tools have a limited use, find equipment rentals in Chicago IL should you need them. Roofing nailer: A roofing nailer is only good for nailing singles. Rent this when you need to instead of investing in something you’re not likely to use for another 10 years. Compactor: Since it compacts the surface to give you an even grade, a compactor is a must for creating sidewalks, concrete patios or paths, masonry paths, or driveways. Compactors are...
