Computer Tip for Faster Operation, More Speed, More Horsepower for Your Computer (revealing the best, fastest web browser for you to use)

Overview/Premise:  Please don’t get in a rut where you find yourself using only one web browser! When you’re connected to the Internet and are using it for any number of countless reasons always have at least 3 different web browsers minimized down at the taskbar ready to place into action at a moments notice when the going gets tough.

Details: Web browsers are like people in that they have different personalities and characteristics. And like people a web browser that is running fine might all of a sudden start acting bad or uncooperative as if it just came down with a cold or flu.  I’d be here all day if I were to cite examples as to what I mean by a broswer that starts to act bad or uncooperative, but I’ll give you a couple of different scenarios:

Sometimes you have to fill out a field or two. A “field” are little boxes that require you to enter characters. For instance, you might need to enter your email address into a field when signing up for Netflix. But, for some strange reason, every time you enter a character it does not appear in the field. Or if it does appear in the field it takes several annoying seconds before it appears and thus you are forced to wait a long time to perform a simple procedure.  If you’re using Firefox when that happens, simply switch to another browser like Chrome, Opera, Avant, Maxthon, Safari or Internet Explorer.

Another example is a common one that everyone can relate to.  All of a sudden you notice that certain web pages take a long time to download. Simply bring up one of the 3 or 4 web browsers you have waiting for you minimized down at the task bar.

The novice who’s new to computers might think that having 5 or 6 web browsers on their machine will cause some sort of damage or conflict, like ramming  a stick through the front wheel of a bicycle as the cyclist pedals down the street. There are no conflicts, in fact you’ll be in heaven when you find your current browser of choice stars to act defiant and you discover switching over to a different brand browser easily fixes the problem.

You can think of a web browser as a fast horse, a horse that gets you around the Internet. And your hard drive is a stable where you store your horses. The more horses you have in your stable the better off you’ll be because some horses have bad days or they get injured.

Automation: When you get up in the morning some people automatically urinate and in some cases they automatically grab a cup of coffee. When you boot up your computer you should automatically open at least 3 web browsers and then minimize two of them down at the task bar and keep them there until you go to bed so they’re ready to spring into action when called on.

I would imagine that many people who think their computer is running slow due to a virus or malware or due to a common fluctuation of speed as it relates to their Internet connection (for those who use a cable connection as opposed to DSL) really are experiencing  nothing more than a web browser that has just come down with a bad cold. And I’m calling it a “cold” because when you try using the bad browser an hour later, or a day later, it runs fast and strong.

And don’t be swayed by builders who proclaim that their browser is rated the fastest browser on the planet. All web browsers are temperamental and are subject to highs and lows and different conditions that can impact their level of performance in day to day operations.

This is the kind of tip your computer science teacher may not have told you. Teachers are human and they get stuck in a rut where they tend to use the same web browser or application over and over again. And that is why many novice computer users have something they can teach you, me and a professor who teaches a computer science class at M.I.T. or Harvard.

I am Peter Mack and that is my real world name. Tenant-X is a real person and neighbor of mine who lives in the same apartment building I live in. This blog was created just for him as he goes through a contentious, domestic issue he’s dealing with on the homefront. More exactly, and a little ironically, I’m lending support to him as he goes through his first ever unfair and unjust Just Cause eviction. If you have something that you want us to read, stuff that might be a little personal and for our eyes only, you can contact either one of us by sending us an email. And if you have any questions about the San Diego, Tijuana area feel free to ask.

Definition of the Just Cause Eviction law (tailored for coffee addicts & tenants)

This is a short post for tenants who refuse to go to Coffee Anonymous and are in a hurry to define the Just Cause Eviction law. The definition on this page applies to San Diegans. Other states and cities who offer JCE protection may have a different format that might come close to resembling San Diego’s version:

The JCE applies to tenants in San Diego who have been living in the same unit for two years or more. Once the tenant makes it to the 2 year mark of tenancy, they then automatically qualify for Just Cause protection. The premise of the JCE is that at the two year mark of a tenants residency, the landlord must specify at least one of 8 specific reasons as to why the tenant is being evicted. If the tenant has been residing in the same unit for a period of two years or less, the tenant has less protection, they can be evicted for no reason or any reason. A no reason/any reason type eviction is called a No Fault eviction. Here are San Diego’s 8 reasons a landlord can cite when issuing a Just Cause eviction, 8 reasons that were created by the San Diego city council in 2004 for landlords to adhere to:

(a) Nonpayment of Rent.

(b) Violation of Obligation of Tenancy. The tenant has violated a lawful and  material obligation or covenant of the tenancy, except that the following may not be grounds for termination or non-renewal of a tenancy:  (1) The failure to surrender possession of the rental-unit upon the  expiration of a specified term

(c) Nuisance. The tenant is committing a nuisance or permitting a nuisance in, or is causing damage to, the rental-unit or to the appurtenances thereof or to the common areas of the housing complex containing the rental-unit, or is creating an unreasonable interference with the comfort, safety, or enjoyment of any of the other residents of the housing complex.

(d) Illegal Use. The tenant is using or permitting the rental-unit to be used for an illegal purpose.

(e) Refusal to Renew Lease. The tenant who had a written lease or rental  agreement which terminated on or after April 26, 2004 has refused, after  written request by the landlord, to execute a written extension or renewal  thereof within the written period prescribed by the lease or state law for a  further term of like duration with similar provisions.

(f) Refusal to Provide Access. The tenant has refused to give the landlord  reasonable access to the rental-unit for the purpose of making repairs or  improvements, or for the purpose of inspection as permitted or required by the lease or by law, or for the purpose of showing the rental-unit to any  prospective purchaser or mortgagee.

(g) Correction of Violations. The landlord, after having obtained all necessary permits from the City of San Diego, seeks to recover possession of the rental unit for necessary repair or construction when removal of the tenant is reasonably necessary to accomplish the repair or construction work.

(h) Withdrawal of Residential Rental Structure from the Rental Market. The  landlord intends to withdraw all rental-units in all buildings or structures on a parcel of land from the rental market.

The following cities have a Just Cause Eviction law in place:

  • Hayward
  • San Francisco
  • Oakland
  • Seattle
  • West Hollywood
  • Santa Monica
  • Berkeley
  • Los Angeles
  • Chicago
  • New York
  • Washington D.C.
  • San Diego

It appears that New Jersey and New Hampshire are the only states in the U.S. that provides a Just Cause Eviction law for all tenants statewide. The list of 12 cities noted above may not be complete. If your city is not on that list then please go to the housing section of your cities municipal code section to determine if your city has a Just Cause Eviction law.

Many landlords and apartment managers do not like the Just Cause Eviction law. Their reasons are varied. In future posts I will shed a little light on how some apartment managers are able to cicumvent a JCE by using dirty, unethical tactics that would make Bernie Madoff proud. They are tactics that demonize a good tenant, tactics that can cause a good tenant a lot of trouble.

They are tactics that can tax a tenants mind and body. Assuming your apartment manager is over 18 years of age, one tactic they use is a cruel tactic. It’s a tactic you may have seen used in high school, one that you may have been the unfortunate victim of. Or it may have been a sadistic tactic you used in high school in order to inflict pain on someone for any number of countless reasons. They are reasons  that might relate to your narcissistic personality.  Reasons that might be related to prejudice. Reasons that might  relate to low self esteem despite your position of power, despite your genetic prowess. Or they might be reasons related to the pain you hope to try and hide by deflecting it onto other people who are below you in rank and status. I’ll talk about that devious tactic in a future post.

Mission Statement: The Purpose of This Blog (a.k.a. the nuts & bolts)

My name is Peter Mack. That’s my real world name, it is not a fictitious name. The purpose of this blog is not, at this time, to monetize it with ads. There are other reasons for creating this blog. My goal is to lend support to a fellow tenant in my apartment building, a very good tenant, whose heart and soul is being dragged through the mud by two devious, double-talking, unethical apartment managers and one or more of their chosen accomplices who live in the same apartment building located in San Diego.

His two apartment managers are conducting a smear campaign that is designed to portray him as a violent man and/or criminal. He is boxed in a corner, virtually fighting them, and their pack of lies, all by himself, which is another reason for me to support him. The tenant I’m supporting with this blog does not want to be identified. I will refer to him as Tenant-X.

Tenant-X is not only being subjected to slander, management is also in the process of evicting him. Their vicious plan of attack does not end with an eviction. After the eviction management will blacklist him which will make it hard, very hard, for Tenant-X to rent an apartment anywhere he goes in the United States. Tenant-X has been living and renting an apartment in the same building for 15 years.

Fifteen years.

That is a very large chunk of good quality rental history his landlord, the two apartment managers, and their team of lawyers are trying to destroy. American landlords place great weight on a tenants rental history. In America a persons credit history is very important. A persons rental history may be as important as their credit history when it comes time to rent an apartment.

What you read here, the very bad things that Tenant-X has been subjected to, could happen to you if you reside at a San Diego apartment complex that is owned by George Lattimer (Embassy Apartments or Diamond Apartments) or any apartment complex in the U.S. that has a Just Cause Eviction law in place. Many landlords do not like the Just Cause Eviction law and some of them have dirty techniques and unscrupulous managers they employ in order to circumvent the Just Cause Eviction law.

Certain tenants in San Diego, and other tenants around the U.S., are covered by the Just Cause Eviction law and I’ll tell you if you qualify for Just Cause protection. If you are a renter who is covered by a Just Cause Eviction law then the information I’ll be sharing with you as it pertains to Tenant-X’s situation is information that a tenant might be able to use. In some cities the Just Cause Eviction law is called a Good Cause law or Just Cause Eviction Control (JCEC). The following cities have a Just Cause Eviction law in place:

  1. Hayward
  2. San Francisco
  3. Oakland
  4. Seattle
  5. West Hollywood
  6. Santa Monica
  7. Berkeley
  8. Los Angeles
  9. Chicago
  10. New York
  11. Washington D.C.
  12. San Diego

It appears that New Jersey and New Hampshire are the only states in the U.S. that provides a Just Cause Eviction law for all tenants statewide. The list of 12 cities noted above may not be complete. If your city is not on that list then please check your cities municipal codes to determine if your city has a Just Cause Eviction law.

And so you wonder, just how does a landlord evict a good tenant like Tenant-X, a tenant who doesn’t hold loud parties, keeps to himself, pays the rent on time every month for 15 years, and is protected by the Just Cause Eviction law? And why would they do such a thing? There are many details, a lot of details, that go into answering those two questions. I look forward to sharing those details in a future post. For now, I can only give general, vague answers to those two questions:

Management is attempting to evict, or can attempt to evict Tenant-X (or any tenant covered by a Just Cause Eviction law) by using deceit, deception and lies in order to make an illegal eviction look legal in a court of law. And it appears as if they’re evicting him for two reasons not found in San Diego’s Just Cause Eviction law: 1) because they don’t like him, which is prejudice and 2) because of the way the Tenant-X defended himself when he stood up to management when management violated the terms of the rental agreement by doing some out of the ordinary things that were highly offensive, and management is retaliating. As I noted earlier, I will share more details at a later date. Until then, please remember, there are two sides to every story.

In later posts I will write about the techniques Ray and Inga Nardone employ in order to get around the seemingly tough, ironclad, Just Cause eviction law. And I will describe the highly offensive things the Nardones have said and done to Tenant-X. For now I will just say that the Nardones behaved in a way that crossed the line of decency, gross, ugly behavior that was unacceptable to Tenant-X. Ray and Inga Nardone are the two “professional” apartment managers who manage the building Tenant-X lives in. Ray and Inga Nardone are both very nice, friendly, sweet-talking people who Mark Twain would have called “Damn liars and then some.”

$$$ for you (though not much)

You may notice the picture in my header may change from time to time. Many of the pictures are of people I ran into on Garnet Avenue or elsewhere in the U.S.

I am not an ingrate.

And so if you should find yourself pictured in my blogs header then contact me and I’ll send you a small monetary gift that will cover the cost of a couple of meals at your favorite fast food restaurant. You will have to provide me with proof of I.D.

A copy of your drivers license should suffice. According to U.S. law, a person pictured on a website does not have to be remunerated if the website wasn’t built to generate a profit. Nevertheless, I will reward you with a small token of appreciation because that is my nature

I am fond of still image cameras and video cameras. If you’re a neighbor of mine you will never see your picture on my blog. Not unless I have your permission. Not unless you engage in a blatant criminal act that impacts me or a friend. If you accuse me or someone I know of a criminal act we did not commit, and you do so with conviction, and you do so with or without malice, I would consider posting your picture in order to inform people in my neighborhood of a very foolish person in our midst, one who breathes the same fresh air we breathe, despite the heavy layer of lies and filth that saturates the tongue of a person and deceiver who bears false witness.

The reason for the statement made above: There are people who live at Embassy Apartments/Diamond Apartments who accuse other tenants of uncivil or criminal acts they did not commit. In future posts I will explain why those things take place.
