Friends and Money: Debt or Relationship Recovery?
RecoverySoft / August 18, 2018

We've all heard it before. You should not mix business with friends or pleasure, but in most cases it's much easier to say than actually do. We usually enter into these agreements with the hope that the business will go to plan and the friendship will be stronger for it. After our best intentions, sometimes it does not always go to plan. So what happens when the project ends and the tax invoice have been issued, but months roll by without a payment. All of a sudden, you're in the unfortunate situation where you have to consistently, month after month, ask your friend for payment but they are now avoiding you. You want the money you're entitled to, but you want to salvage the friendship too so what do you do? Perhaps you should seek the services of a professional debt collector who can mediate the situation. This may seem a little rash to some, but remember money is what makes the world go round and by employing someone else to do your dirty work for you, you'll be able to concentrate on salvaging your relationship. In choosing a debt collector to pursue payment from your friend there are a…

Data Recovery Services – Be Wary of Cheap Prices
RecoverySoft / August 15, 2018

Data recovery is a specialized, complicated process. Proper hard drive recovery can require manipulation of data at the sector level, transplantation of internal components and various other procedures. These techniques are very involved and require not only talented, knowledgeable technicians, but also an extensive inventory of disk drives to use for parts when necessary and clean facilities to conduct the work. Unfortunately these factors mean that, in most cases, recovery services are quite expensive. Technician training, hard drive inventories and special equipment all come with a cost. If you search for disk recovery services, you will likely find several smaller companies that offer hard disk data recovery for a fraction of the prices typically quoted by larger, more experienced organizations. These companies often operate from small offices or, in some cases, private homes. They do not possess clean room facilities, large disk drive inventories or many other pieces of equipment necessary to successfully complete most hard drive recovery cases. When you take into account all of the training, parts and facilities necessary, you can see how it is impossible for a company to charge $ 200 for a hard drive recovery and not operate at a loss. What these companies…

Safe Online Retirement Policy For Your PC
RecoverySoft / August 14, 2018

After servicing you for years on end without any complains or anything, your computer is now due for a retirement. Of course, the decision still rests on you as the rightful owner of the electronic device. However, if you feel that you are ready to let go and replace, sell or donate your good ol 'trusted machine, you should note that before it leaves your possession, everything on its hard drive should be totally eradicated and erased. This would prevent other people from accessing your private information and use them for identity theft activities. Before you unplug your computer for the very last time, you will manually delete all your files that are saved in the drive. Another option would be to perform a format on all the drives that are built into your computer. What you should remember though is the fact that although you've already deleted the file through manual deletion or formatting, a computer expert, hacker or identity theft criminal may still be able to recover these files which can then put you and your family in a very compromising situation. Here's a list of the files that you should remove before you sell, donate or dispose…

Configure Exchange E-Mail Server Reverse DNS and MX Records Correctly
RecoverySoft / August 6, 2018

If DNS is setup incorrectly, over time your mail server IP will be added to blacklists. Nowadays most E-Mail servers have some kind of spam protection service which in turn means that all your inbound mail will be blocked if you do happen to be listed on a spam blacklist. In this article I will describe how to correctly configure your MX and reverse DNS records for your mail server. This article is based on an Exchange 2003/2007 server but every other messaging server will follow the same principle. Assigning an IP address Starting from the bottom up the first thing you need to do is assign a static external IP address to the internal private address of your mail server. You will need to apply these rules on your firewall to port forward SMTP (port 25) and NAT an external IP address to the internal address of the server. Something that a lot of administrators forget to do or check is to set the outgoing NAT rule to use the same external IP address created for the inbound rule to the mail server. If this isn’t set, Reverse DNS will not match and in turn your mail server will…

Vasectomy Recovery
RecoverySoft / August 4, 2018

Whether you have a standard vasectomy or a no scalpel vasectomy there will be a period of recovery. Granted a scalpel one has a longer recovery time and a little more discomfort than a no scalpel vasectomy, but there is still recovery time. The doctor will give you a set of instructions for what to do following your vasectomy and it is this that I would like to discuss. The mystery is actually a lot worse than the reality so brace yourself. Below is a typical list of things to do when recovering from a vasectomy. Your doctor may give you a slightly different list but the idea will be the same. 1. The doctor will tell you to stay off of your feet for a few days following the vasectomy procedure. For those of you that work from home, here is where you will benefit. You will just be asked to sit back on the couch and put your feet up. 2. To take the edge off of your vasectomy the doctor will prescribe you pain relievers and ask you to take them as needed. Trust me when you need one go ahead and take one. Nobody will have…

What Do Rats Eat?
RecoverySoft / August 3, 2018

Rats eat a wide variety of food. They have voracious appetites and will eat almost anything. They are true omnivorous scavengers, but mostly prefer grain, livestock feed, and meat. Rats have also been known to eat soap, leather, furs, candy, milk, meat, vegetables, poultry, eggs, grain, seeds, fruit, nuts, snails and other rodents. A rat can eat a third of its body weight each day. The rat’s main important consumption is water, as it cannot survive long without it. Rats need 1/2 to 1 ounce of water daily. Two main types of rats, brown rats and black rats eat about the same things. But there are slight differences in preferences between the two. Brown rats or Norway rats eat nearly any type of food, but they prefer high-quality foods such as meat and fresh grain. These rats require 1/2 to 1 fluid ounce of water daily when feeding on dry food. Rats have keen taste, hearing, and sense of smell. Roof rats or black rats generally prefer vegetables, fruits and grain, and consume 1/2 to 1 ounce food per day from various sources. They do not readily accept meat or fish. They like cereal grains, chopped apples, sweet potatoes, melons,…

What Is the Recovery Time for Liposuction?
RecoverySoft / August 2, 2018

Liposuction is a surgical procedure done through tiny incisions to permanently remove any external fat that you may have in problem areas. Typically, the feeling you will have right after liposuction is a sensation of post-workout pain, or the muscle soreness and pain you may feel after extreme exercise. The areas of liposuction will feel sore and numb for several days after your procedure. After a few days, you will probably feel itching, burning, electrical shocks, and similar feelings in the areas of liposuction. This is good, because it means that the nerves supplying your skin are beginning to have less swelling and are starting to heal. After several weeks, you should have normal feelings in your skin in all areas of liposuction. Sometimes you may develop hardened soft tissue areas where you had liposuction. This may occur because you are wearing your post-surgery compression garment incorrectly, or your body may be trying to develop scar tissue in the areas of surgery. Often wearing your garment in a different fashion, or starting to massage that areas that are beginning to get harder, or both, will alleviate any asymmetry and scar tissue that is trying to form. Patients can usually get…

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…

Issues With External Hard Drive
RecoverySoft / July 25, 2018

An external hard drive can be described in simple terms as a hard drive that is portable, or one that can be transported around. Although this is a very simple definition of what an external drive is, the truth is that, it is pretty much the same as it is described above. However, we can be more specific by describing it as the portable version of the fixed hard disk, which comes with a USB casing that enables it to be used on various computers with the help of an USB cable. Other than the above given differences, there is no noticeable difference between a fixed hard drive and an external hard disk. We can confirm this due to the presence of various moving parts that are present both in a fixed disk and an external disk. The main purpose for which the external hard disk is used is also pretty much the same, which is data storage. However, in this case, the stored data can be transported along with the user and accessed on the computer of his choice. Some of the most common uses of the external disk are for storage of data, which usually eat up a…
