Solona Beach CA welcome sign bloggerOn a bike ride along the North County coast, I am excited to be welcomed to Solana Beach, CA. Photo: By Kevin Wilkerson, Travel Blogger I want to travel. Get on a plane and go somewhere. See different sights, eat in new (to me) restaurants, drink in different bars – or outside of them if it’s outdoor only – than my familiar eating and watering holes. But instead of boarding a plane, I will be boarding my bicycle. And the trolley, the city’s excellent bus system and even the Coaster. You see, I live in San Diego and San Diego is one of the world’s best travel destinations. I have only explored a small part of this area in the year and a half I have lived here and it’s time to get out and get to know my city. So while I can’t really travel anywhere,

Cards make people come into their stores more often and spend valuable money through gift card purchases, but what kind of benefit do these cards offer for customers?

After plugging in the information it provided, it basically told me that a hard drive failure was imminent. FML!

Back in the day, if you turned on the computer and hear your hard drive clicking, you knew you were SOL. But this computer came with an SSD (solid state drive), and they apparently have a S.M.A.R.T. monitoring feature that detects and reports various indicators of drive reliability with the intent of anticipating imminent hardware failures. That’s what triggered the warning. Needless to say, I didn’t want to sit on this, as my drive could give out at any moment.

Official government data released on the gender wage gap has painted the UK games industry in a poor light, falling well below national averages and medians in terms of equality. While the data is distinctly lacking in many areas, it does highlight clear patterns within the games industry. The dataset includes information on median and means wage gaps, the difference in bonus pay, and the ratios of women working within different levels of the company. However, as only companies with 250 more UK staff were legally required to submit data, there are several notable omissions including Activision, Ubisoft, Ninja Theory, Nintendo UK, Sega, and Playground Games.
