Backup Invision Community Site

I'm use to using all these different software packages available to other CMS sites like Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.. that would perform routine backups of your site and make it very easy to restore.  In fact cPanel has backup and restore built in for Wordpress sites but that's where it stops.  Apparently we are all suppose to use the very slow Wordpress solution.  NOT! Briefly here is how you can create the routine to backup your website regardless 1st concentrate on the Database

Zack's off to the Air Force

As you could probably imagine as a parent how exciting and scared you are for your kid even though many of us have been there without many of the luxuries that they have now a days.  From what I heard they have scaled back quite a bit due to kids calling there parents while in boot camp and explaining the horrors the drill instructors make them do and for the love of god, no internet, no phones, no game consoles. Now I've been in the Air Force boot camp longer than most (yea I got what they

git issues on Mac OS X after upgrade

Create Visio Diagrams without Visio

Being a mac user and sometimes linux user (never Windows), I miss Visio since that's how I created my diagrams.  I tried many different software replacements to just be let down.  I stumbled on lucid.app which my initial reaction was, no way a web based anything could come close to Visio but man was I wrong. Yes you can import stencils Yes you can import Visio diagrams, OmniGraffle, Gliffy, Draw.io Yes you can export Visio Is it free?  No but its very affordable o

Military Career STEP 6 (Tech Training)

Technical School typically comes after your Basic Training.  Now based on what job the military assigns you depends on where you will be going for your schooling.  Example for the Air Force they have four bases for Technical Training which include: Goodfellow AFB, TX Lackland AFB, TX (so in short you go to training where you went to basic) Sheppard AFB, TX Keesler AFB, MS

Military Career STEP 5 (Basic Military Training)

As you can imagine this is one of the toughest parts about joining the service.  Some call it boot camp, some call it basic training and some call it hell.  During this time, they are testing you mentally, emotionally and physically.  No matter what branch of service they need to make sure before they hand you a gun or work on a multi-million dollar piece of equipment or put others in harms way the military needs to know that you won't loose your crap when shit gets real. How long is Basic

Military Career STEP 2 (ASVAB TEST)

Is the military your choice for a career?  It's not a bad choice and if you ask me I believe we Americans should do what Italians do and require everyone who graduates serve their country for a minimum of two years.  Then they have the choice to either stay with the military and work towards and nice retirement or go the public sector and find a job with a company. If the military is your choice, you should probably practice the ASVAB testing which practice testing is available on this webs

Military Career STEP 1 (Recruitment Interview)

When you are 17 you can go talk to a recruiter and you should have some questions to ask your recruiter regardless of what branch of service you want to join. If you set a time to meet a military recruiter, be courteous and show up at that time. Prove you're reliable and a person of your word by arriving at the time you said you would. It shows you respect your own time and that of the person you're meeting. Be on Time!! One important note to keep in mind: Just because you talk to a re
