I am what you call a casual photographer. Once in a while I take photos of things in the surroundings. This one was taken in San Jose, at my parents’ garden. Sometimes, you just have to stop and appreciate the beauty of nature.

Today, I tried to see if I could use one of my eFax account to fax a document to my credit union. It turns out that they no longer provide the client software and it looks like they charge for everything now.
So I did a little searching and found FaxZero.com. They provide both free and premium FAX services. Of course, being the free-seeking person that I am, I opted to use the free service. And guess what? It did the job!
It was very simple. You just need to make sure that the document you wish to FAX is already in electronic format–e.g. in PDF, JPG, DOC, or some other well known format.
When you setup to send, all you need to have are the following information:
- Your name
- Your email address
- Company name
- Fax number
You also have to enter some confirmation code. This is to help the site protect itself from SPAMMERS.
That’s it! You don’t have to register, or anything.
After I you click the Send Free FAX button, you will be asked to confirm by checking looking for their confirmation email and clicking a link there to actually send the fax. Once you send the fax, you will receive another email stating that your fax has been sent.
For the price, you can’t beat this service.
It would seem that training for long distance running (anything 10K and above) has some downside to it.
I’m finding that my body takes some serious beating after long runs, and it would take me about 2 to 3 days to recover from it. The beating comes in the form of sore knees, hips, and foot.
One of the first things I noticed after I started my marathon training is that my right hip would start to get sore. Then after watching some videos on proper running form, I made some adjustments. Then my knee started to get more sore; I would look at some more running form videos and make more adjustments.
I thought I was able to find the right one until I did my recent 16 mile run and a follow on 5 mile run (one day after). I discovered that my foot (the bottom part) was sore. Apparently I been landing more on my forefoot than my midfoot, causing my muscles there to get overused. Now I’m down for at least 3 days.
I’m going to have to pull back on my long run this weekend as I have not been able to keep up with the running plan this week.
On 31 Mar 2010 I signed up for the “Avenue of the Vines Half Marathon” event. This will be my first running event that has the term “marathon” attached to it. I’m hoping to do this in around 2 hours. Depending on how I feel and how my legs are, I may be able to do just that.
Maybe I’ll be able to document the event with my phone and post it here for everyone to see. Don’t worry, I’ll only show the highlights.
Yesterday while driving, I heard that there is a way to make a couple of bucks…or $4 to be exact…by selling your services online.
There is a web site that does just that. It is called www.fiverr.com. Through that site, people can basically buy and sell service. Those selling, sell what they have to offer for $5. Those buying, purchase a service for $5.
In the end, the buyer gets something for $5, the seller get $4, and Fiverr.com gets $1! So who said you can’t make money online; with Fiberr.com you can.
