  • Use This Magic Word When Googling for Tech Support
    Posted on: 2011-03-09
    Adding one word to your Google searches will help find solutions faster.

    The next time you're pulling your hair out over a technical support issue, you might want to try this simple trick to help you find real answers to the problem you're experiencing:

    Add 'solved' to your search query. Rather than just describe your problem, i.e. 'Outlook won't sync to my Droid smartphone,' try adding +SOLVED to the end of the search. Many tech support message boards use '[SOLVED]' to close threads on technical support issues.

    One other trick is to use ~solved instead of +solved. Using the '~' (the tilde) tells Google to not only look for 'solved,' but also synonyms for solved, such as 'fixed,' 'resolved,' etc.

    Getting great results from Google is usually a matter of writing better queries. Here's a helpful article on ways to improve your search skills, straight from Google:
  • HELP CATHOLIC CHARITIES 'STUFF' THE THRIFT STORE
    Posted on: 2010-10-12
    For those who plan to buy new household appliances or furniture: Rather than pay someone to remove your older items, donate them to the Thrift center; the store will pick up larger donations at no charge. 'Gently used' mattresses and housewares are needed to stock the Center located at 1320 East 23rd Street.

    1,500 customers shop at the store each month, paying discounted prices for basic household goods or nothing at all.

    As you prepare for the holidays and purchase new goods for your homes, consider donating your cast-offs that are in good condition to the Thrift Center.

    The agency continues to see an increased demand for basic household goods --- pots and pans, dishes, furniture, beds and woorking kitchen appliances like refrigerators and stoves.

    To arrange pickup of large items, call the Thrift Center at 764-2717.
