Traveling Geek Girl and Murphy's Law

Hi blog buds!

I am SOOOO excited right now. First off, so many of you have sent in questions over the last 2 weeks, and I promise(!) I will personally answer each and every one of them! However, I just had to let you all know that not only am I leaving the country for a 2 week vacation today (I plan to do a special on-the-road video podcast from Italy, so keep checking back this week!), but my trusty old G4 laptop finally died on me last week, and that's why I haven't responded to you all as promptly as I usually do. Of course, it had to happen RIGHT before I left for holiday (that's Murphy's Law, right?) but at least I got a cool new MacBook out of it!


Anyhow, I did lose a few emails from you all, however I think it was only 3-5 in total...I do have the rest saved and plan on writing responses while waiting at airports and train stations in Europe. :) So if you sent me an email early last week or the week before that, can you please re-send it to me just to make sure I get to your question? And I happen to think that a special video podcast will be a nice consolation prize, given that I can get decent internet connections while on the road! The topic will be totally impromptu (I just had the idea this morning), there won't be the usual Geek Girl backdrop or glasses(!), and I think it's going to be very useful for those of you who travel!



Lastly, before I sign off this airport and go to the real kind I wanted to say how great it is to see you all posting suggestions and answering each others' questions in the comment section here on my little 'ol blog when I can't get to them soon enough. It's really great to see a little Geek and Geek-in-Training community forming here, and I hope you guys can help each other out while I am on holiday (though I promise to have something for you guys, even though I'll technically be on vacation!)


To email me your questions, or even video questions for a chance to be featured in a future podcast, email me at geek.girl@earthlink.net.

And make sure to subscribe to my videos on iTunes...they are FREE and the quality on iTunes is way better than on YouTube. Plus, you can take me with you on your iPod. :) See you all in Cyberspace soon!



Arrivederchi
and cheers,

Hi adrianna! I am at the underground train station at london heathrow right now and on my blackberry, so I'm sorry for the brief message and poor capitalizations! Lol. Video camera cables are a bit tricky, because I'm betting that your camera came with a usb cable that let's you download your pictures (taken with the video camera still function), but not video. That's because you need a higher speed cable, a firewire cable, to transfer video. There are different types of inputs, however, on different cameras, that you might need to just either take your camera into a best buy or other electronics store, or take a digital picture of the input and take it with you to the store instead. OR, you can take a pic of the input and email it to me, and I'll find the right cable for you online and send you a link. My email addy is at the bottom of this latest blog entry. Oh, and you should email me the type of pc you have as well, just so I can make sure they are compatible.

Cheers!!

Geek girl from Europe!

I'm going on vacation this summer to Vietnam. I was wondering if there's a way to unlock the iPhone and have it be able to use other sim cards. Is there a free software to unlock the iPhone? When I get back, can I reverse the unlock and put the iPhone back to normal? Thanks..

In order to compile capital it is usually a sensible idea to start a savings or investing game plan as soon in life as possible. But don't despair if you have not begun saving your capital until later on in life. Through hard work, that is investigating the best investment vehicles for your assets you can slowly but surely increase your finances so that it measures to a big amount by the period you want to retire. Watch all of the achievable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A knowledgeable and diversified portfolio of investments in different asset classes may help your money grow through the years.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
