Construction Demolition and Renovation

Jakarta, Indonesia - Every now and then, there are a lot of demolition and renovation the many countries since the development of the industry is fast evolving. Axis Capital Group, a construction company based in Singapore has heaps of questions on how to renovate and demolish their houses with our construction equipment. Basically, we would suggest for them to hire a professional but with meager budget, they would rather do it themselves. We have listed some of the following tips for you to review later on when you are to demolish and renovate your house.   Demolition--or simply "demo"--is an essential part of nearly every home renovation project. Before you put in that new floor, you've got to rip out the old carpet. Before you install that nice granite tiled shower stall, you need to tear out the old 1972 era avocado-colored fiberglass unit.   But demolition can be dangerous, frustrating, and expensive. And if not done right, it can nip your whole renovation project in the bud. Here are essential tips on room-scale demo to make sure you actually get to the renovation part of it.   1. Look at Demolition as the Start of the Project   Upon getting into the demo, you are already starting the project and not merely a prelude to the real project. After you have demolished all that needs demolishing, you can proceed with the renovation.   2. Set a Different Time for Construction   Say to you, "Today (or this whole weekend) will be devoted to nothing but demo." Don't attempt to do anything constructive after demo. You won't feel like it after spending 6 hours of tearing things down. Also, by not having renovation scheduled, you won't feel the pressure to move more quickly than is safe.   3. Only the Important things to Demolish   If there is an opening somewhere, drywall and plaster dust will find it. So, merely closing a door on demo usually isn't good enough. Seal with sheet plastic and tape with blue tape or use a readymade system like the Zipwall Dust Barrier .   4. Know what is Lurking Behind the Walls   There are more dangers than we can imagine in demolishing our homes. Before swinging that sledge or crowbar, try to determine what is behind that wall. Live electrical wire? Water pipe? Gas? Asbestos? Exploratory holes and flashlights work wonders at helping you find out what's in there. It may be a lot dangerous in finding some asbestos and you may need to put up a warning sign for health precautions.   5. No electrical Anything   Basically, all I wanted to say was to turn off the switch. This should go without saying. If you need light, run an extension cord into your room and light the room with a utility light.   6. Get the Right Tools and Equipments   Just as you carefully select a drill or a saw for a construction project, you need to select tools for your destruction project. Have at least a sledge, a crowbar (the big kind), a prybar (the flat, hand-held tool), and a claw hammer that you don't particularly care about anymore (it will get dinged up and may even break). You can also rent a construction equipment to take care of hauling and lifting of much larger scale like roof or walls.

It would be great if you could use a hard rubber instead of the brittle hard plastic currently used on female side of  USB, HDMI, DP, etc, etc port.  I understand that in most instances the entire motherboard needs to be replaced in order to repair which is not only costly but really bad for the environment.

Laptop computers are supposed to be easy to use and convient right? I am in sales and spend a lot of my time on both desktop and laptop computers all day.  When I get home I like to relax with my family.  Lay down, watch a movie, or relax on the couch.  Have you ever tried to type an email or type for a long period of time on a laptop.  Not the easiest and most convient.  I have a solution as well as a protype that I would like to contact Dell with.  I think it is innovative and should and will be implemented in their laptop computer manufactures, It is the next biggest idea to come to laptop computers.  I have done hours and hours upon research of this idea.  There is nothing like this on the market.   People close to me as well as local business individuals think it is an amazing idea and it is the next big thing to come to laptop computers.  How do I make this great idea become a reality?  I am biased to dell computers, I have always had a Dell computer my whole life.  I am looking for suggestions on how to contact Dell and to try to bring this amazing idea/prototype to life.  Thank you for any and all feedback! # Great Idea # Need help or the right connection

Finger scan to allow easier access into the computer

Apr 16, 2015

So I was just about to log into my computer to complete a homework assignment when I though to myself, my password is incredibily too long. What if there were a way to get in and out the computer faster without having to type out the full password? Suggestion What if Dell can incorporate the finger print technology used in most smartphones today into the trackpad of the computer? So when a user needs to quickly acess the computer they can simply press their finger onto a designated area of the trackpad and the computer scans the finger print to allow quick acess to the computer. It would be a really cool feautre that I wouldn't mind having on my computer simply because I wouldn't have to type out my password everytime when logging on to use the computer. I think if possible this could be a really cool and unique feature to incorporate into a design of a laptop.

Last week April 08 2015 I got a first quote for our Customer a new SVR320 Server. The process is not yet finished by now April 14 2015. Observations: a) Neither the right sales person or his manager phones been provided even after a repeated E-Mail requests; b) Tried to contact DELL management in regard to the quote last week on the phone. Operator promised a call back in about two hours - no call back yet in over 2 business days; c) For the last few years it becomes more and more difficult to get a right quote in a realistic time-frame; d) Sales person tried to include into the quote the unrequited options for about Eur. 500.00 and it took a few E-Mails to remove them; Suggestions based on the observations in the process of obtaining the right quote for the right price: 1) Quote should contain a valid phone number for the sales person; 2) Quote should contain a valid phone number of the sales person manager; 3) www.dell.ie should provide a reliable local DELL office phone number and a reference number should be given to a call; Thank you for your care, Boris

Commenting Improvements

Apr 13, 2015

I have noticed a few issues with commenting: Comment reporting is broken.Double-posting is really easy. At least for me, IdeaStorm tends to run very slowly, and if a user clicks the submit button again while waiting for the comment to post, the comment will be reposted. There are a couple of options to combat this: check for close-proximity identical comments and ignore all but one, or have a timer before a new comment is posted (not necessarily as effective but more annoying).Email notifications are sent out for a user's comments on his own ideas. Very annoying.Comments are not editable (this also goes for ideas). A way to self-edit a comment to fix typos etc. would be very useful, even if there was a 15 minute limit on doing so.

Incorporate QI wireless charging into laptops for wireless enabled smart phones.

     If your smart phone has the capability for wireless charging, there should be the ability to charge your smart phone while you are using your laptop without the need for messy wires and cables. The charge pad would be located just under the keypad and either to the right or left of the mousepad. This would also provide a way to charge your phone in an emergency if you don't have a phone charger but have your laptop on you as most people tend to do.
