Depression Refractory Mix For The Backyard Foundry.
RecoverySoft / August 17, 2018

This old time foundry refractory mix for crucible or cupola furnaces was adopted by financially strapped foundry owners during the great depression, everyone suffered financial hardships during those days, so there was a lot of improvisation going on, now the backyard founder can save money making a home brew just like the old timers did. First off, you need to make up a mixture of grog, i.e. slag free old broken firebricks, break them up into 50%-pea size & 50 % Walnut size. Place the grog mix in a large bucket or drum, and fill the drum with water until the grog is well covered; leave to soak until there is no sign of air bubbles. Follow the next few steps carefully, as the amounts are made up by volume& not weight. Take “three volumes” of the now very wet 50/50-grog mix and add “two volumes” of good fire clay. (The measuring volumes can be made up of anything from a small tin to a large bucket, depending on the quantity you may need) Mix thoroughly and temper it like moulding sand with a water glass mix of 50% water glass & 50% water. Water glass is the old name…

How Can You Tell If Hair is Growing Back Properly After Telogen Effluvium (TE)?
RecoverySoft / August 13, 2018

I often write about women’s hair loss and I tell my readers that recovery from telogen effluvium (TE, other wise known as shedding) is all about the regrowth.  Because, even if you are shedding buckets of hair, if you can grow it all back with healthy hair, then the volume and appearance of your hair is not going to take as big of a hit as if you were unable to regrow the hair or were only able to grow back sickly, baby fine hairs. In response, people will often ask me things like “how can I tell if my hair is growing back in after TE?” or “how can I tell if I’m regrowing healthy hair after shedding?”  I’ll answer these questions in the following article. Seeing The Short, Stubby Regrowth That Will Greatly Improve The Appearance Of Your Hair:  My hair dresser used to assure me that a few months following my hair shedding, I would start to see little hairs begin to come in at my part.  I pictured that this was going to look like a man’s crew cut blended in with my regular hair. (This wasn’t the case.)  I began to hunt for these little guys every night….

Best Methods Of Data Destruction On Computer Hard Disk Drives
RecoverySoft / August 6, 2018

We are constantly reminded of the importance of recycling. In the ICT industry, recycling of computer equipment can be useful for educational or charitable organisations. It can however be detrimental to the previous owner. Charitable establishments such as Computer Aid International will refurbish computers for reuse in various sectors including education, health and other non-profit organisations for the benefit of developing countries. It would appear Computer Aid International ‘wipe’ each hard disk drive, which is good news as it hopefully provides some certainty that data cannot be retrieved. However, it is doubtful that the ‘average’ user realises the risks involved by selling their old computer on websites such as eBay. They may delete all their files, re-install the operating system (OS) and possibly format their drive, yet the data will probably reside on the disk, typically in unallocated space. Data fragments may be present that could be used maliciously in the hands of a criminal; indeed data from any source i.e. any electronic device could be used maliciously. Discarding computer equipment without due care could lead to irreparable, financial, political and personal damage to the owner or organisation. A recent study conducted by Glamorgan University (source: Time Online website) revealed…

Windows Password Reset – What to Do If You've Forgotten Your Windows Administrator Password
RecoverySoft / August 5, 2018

There are only two ways to regain access to your PC if you've forgotten your Windows Administrator password. The first is to reinstall Windows and totally wipe everything from your computer … and the second is to use a "password reset" program that will reset the password for you. Here's what to do: Method 1 – Reinstall Windows – If you've got nothing to lose from your computer, and have the knowledge to do it, you may wish to reinstall Windows to gain access to your PC again. The only problem with this method is that reinstalling Windows literally means you will lose every file and every piece of data on your PC. This is okay for some people and if you are interested in using this method, you simply need to insert the Windows disc into your PC, reboot your system and select "Boot From CD" in the BIOS options. If you do not understand how to do it, then you need to talk to a computer technician. Method 2 – Use Password Reset Software – The most common way to restore access to your PC is to "reset" the Administrator password for your system by using a piece…

Flash Drive Recovery
RecoverySoft / August 5, 2018

Challenging False Prophets
RecoverySoft / August 3, 2018

In person, Noam Chomsky, now 77, is soft-spoken and considerate, looking very much like what he has become — a respected elder statesman among the Western intellectual elite. Last year he topped the Prospect/Foreign Policy list of 100 global public intellectuals, beating out Richard Dawkins, Václav Havel and Salman Rushdie, among others. But this is an ironic honor because Chomsky is also in some respects the anti-intellectual’s intellectual, quick to argue that most other elites have prostituted themselves through what he describes as “service to power.” Chomsky has been a professor of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass., for more than 50 years. In that time, he has managed to become doubly famous — first for his pioneering work in linguistics, which challenged behaviorism in psychology, and second for his well-publicized criticisms of American foreign policy. When asked about suitable role models for intellectuals today, Chomsky points beyond the chattering classes to the ancient Jewish prophets, including Jesus. This highlights something less known about Chomsky, who was born in Philadelphia to Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe. While internationally famous as a critic of America’s involvement in Vietnam and Iraq, he does so in the role of…

How to Fix ‘0xc0000218’ Stop Error in Microsoft Windows?
RecoverySoft / July 29, 2018

Windows Registry is one of the most important parts of the Microsoft Windows operating system. It is a database, which stores all the configuration options and settings of Windows. Registry also contains settings for the low-level OS components and applications, that run on Windows platform, such as services, device drivers, kernel, user interface, SAM, and third-party software. In case this hierarchical database gets damaged, your system may not boot and you may not be able to access Windows partitions on the drive.

The Zen of Recovery
RecoverySoft / July 27, 2018

Addiction. It is probably the most horrific word I can think of in the English language. It is the thing that altered my entire life and almost rendered a further life impossible for me. I went from a successful writer and editor to a convicted felon within a very short space of time, 24 hours to be exact. That's all it takes, after all, one day, just 24 hours to turn from whatever you once were to someone you no longer know. The addiction itself of course grew and evolved over the course of a few years, but the cataclysm of change took only one day. Officially, I call myself "Lady Lazarus," although the descriptor is not mine. I owe Sylvia Plath for that name because she wrote an awe-inspiring poem of the same title. But, I use that name because technically, I am a woman who came back from the dead, much like Lazarus in the Bible. I was a respected, well-liked, quiet, and by all accounts decent woman when I started ingesting large quantities of Xanax for my anxiety problems. (I had no idea that I had a lot more than "anxiety." In fact, I had a full-blown…
