How to Fix Skype “Disk Full” Error in Windows 7

Looks like Skype is aware of the issue because their staff is participating in discussions around how to fix it, which means there’s good chance they’re working on a solution right now. Until they do fix it with an update there are a few things you can try to fix it yourself.

The easiest thing to do is to install PCKeepr or Avira or any maintenance software to fix all kinds of errors in the background without your involvement for better digital experience. This is the solution if you’re not into techy stuff or if you can’t afford the time to find and try solutions every time you have a Windows error.

Other suggestions is that you close skype and restart it or restart the computer. You can also close Skype. Then open Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Esc) and go to the Processes tab. Look for Skype.exe, and click End Process. Then restart Skype. If you don’t care about keeping your user data you can also delete the Skype user data folder.

You can always reinstall Skype by going to the Add/Remove programs from the control panel, locate Skype and uninstall it, then restart the computer before you reinstall from Skype.com.

A check disk could also help. This is done by going to “Run” (by clicking on “start”), typing “cmd” in the search box, and in the console (the black window that will come up)  chkdsk /f /r and follow the instructions.

The above are the solutions that other users responded to as useful. I hope this helps.

 

My Nutrisystem Review

NutriSystem - Marie Osmand lost 50 lbsNutrisystem …

is one of the most advertised weight loss programs. They deliver your daily 3 meals + 2 snacks daily to your door. The food is both fresh/frozen and plain old cooked meals that you microwave and eat. Also it costs way less than Jenny Craig (almost half).

So far sounds good. But there are things you need to know before you place your first order.

Who Nutrisystem is not for:

  1. If you have any food allergies this is not for you. So stay away from it.
  2. If you are kind of picky on your food again this might not be for you. There are occasions where they don’t have your ordered item in their inventory and would replace it with something else. So if you build hopes on eating pizza today and would be disappointed if you get Sushi instead then this is not for you.
  3. There is an additional cost to the actual program. In addition to the meals you are required to add fresh veggies and fruits, and dairy products from your local grocery store. So in addition to the $299 you’ll pay for one month of meals and snacks you might be required to spend about $60 more on the above items.
  4. If you can’t stop consuming alcohol then Nutrisystem is not for you as might be required to give up on alcohol as long as you are on their diet if you want to see the promised results.

Now that we’re done with who this is not for it’s time to talk about who will benefit from it.

Who can benefit from Nutrisystem

If you want to lose weight and the one thing holding you back is that you dine out all the time because you can’t have the time to cook (or just can’t cook :-)), can not decide how much is just right, or you can’t get your head around the calories thingy, then Nutrisystem is for you.

What they do is that they give you a diet plan to follow, send you the food that you’ll be consuming on daily basis, and support you through their phone support and online forum until you reach your goal in weight loss. They count the calories, cook the food, and all you have to do is eat it.

The average $299 is not bad if you compare that with eating out. That’s less than $10/day for 3 meals and 2 snacks.

In case of cancellation/refund requests

One thing you need to keep in mind before you place your order; cancellations and refunds are a real pain in you-know-what!

The significantly low cost (compared with similar services) comes with a price for you. Let’s say their customer service is not the best in town. From what I read, if you cancel your order please do yourself a big favor and ask for a confirmation number.

White Kidney Bean Extract and Weight Loss Claims

Dr_Oz_white_Kidney_beans_extract

White Kidney Bean Extract
This is one of the white kidney bean extract ad I received from the advertiser.

Like I do every work day, I was looking for a new product to promote as an affiliate to earn commission, and I found this white kidney bean extract diet for weight loss. As I was going through the landing page before I start building the campaign I discovered that I am one of the best people to talk about this product.

You know I am a scientist, with a PhD degree in biosystems engineering (which is a fancy term for genetic engineering). What I didn’t mention before on this website is that I also hold a MSc degree in plant physiology, in which I studied the physiology and biochemistry of beans in response to some herbicides.

While writing the introduction of my dissertation I came across a piece of info that was interesting at the time and it explained some of my findings. That piece of info is that kidney beans seeds contain an amylase inhibitor that disallows the enzyme from binding to starch molecules and hence stops it from working.

I know this might sound too mumbo jumbo so I’ll explain it in a simpler way.

The enzyme alpha-amylase is the enzyme responsible for breaking down starch into smaller pieces before those pieces are broken down further into even saller pieces by beta-amylase, that end up broken down into glucose unites by another set of enzymes (glucosidases).

These amylase enzymes exists in plants, animals, and humans as well. We produce this enzyme in the saliva by the salivary glands and in the intestine by the pancreas. The job of this enzyme is to digest start so that we can use the glucose from which the starch is built.

For the enzyme to work on the substrate (starch in our case) both the enzyme and the substrate should come in contact and the substrate kind of fits in a certain spot on the enzyme called the active site. After that the enzyme starts the action, which is cutting the substrate.

A competitive amylase inhibitor is a natural product that exists in the kidney bean seeds. As it binds to the enzyme it blocks it from binding to starch, and consequently blocks the cutting down of starch into smaller pieces.

By inhibiting this step in the digestion of starch the whole process is pretty much impaired because the smaller starch pieces are the recognizable substrate for the further enzymes in the breakdown chain of reactions. So if this one is blocked you don’t get the glucose that your body can use.

And this is exactly how the white kidney bean extract can help reduce your weight.

By blocking your amylase enzymes from breaking down the starch you can eat as much starchy foods (pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, puddings … etc) as you want without worrying about the increase in you carbohydrate intake, because you simply don’t digest them and your body can not absorb them.

So it works. And I can confirm this from the work I’ve done in my Masters degree in the early 1990s.

With that said, there’s a side effect that you need to know before you decide to add white kidney bean extract to your weight loss supplement arsenal.

As your body doesn’t digest the starch and it passes in your intestine all the way to the end, this start can become food for your intestinal flora that includes beneficial bacteria and harmful yeast cells. Guess which one will have the advantage?

So when you use this product, depending on the composition of your intestinal flora you might or might not experience any side effects. Your indicator will be the bloating. If you get too bloated after you start consuming the white kidney bean extract it means your flora includes too much yeast and they have started to digest and ferment this starch on their own. If I were you in this case I will discontinue using this product and try to fix this problem first with probiotics before I try it one more time.

Tracking Devices Could Save a Life

trackrThis last winter was one of the harshest in my short life of 46 years on this planet. While most people were hiding from the cold in their homes some lost their lives because of the extremely low temperatures.

A young man was found dead next to his wheelchair on the side walk, another senior was also found dead in the cold, and they are both hear breaking if you imagine their suffering while freezing to death unable to save their own lives.

There is victim though that I consider to be the most heart breaking. It’s the loss of the toddler Elijah March. This is the one that gives me the worst feeling I’ve ever had for my whole life, although I had to prepare and bury my own son and a lost my father without having the chance to say goodbye or be by his side in his last days.

The toddler left his grand mother’s residence at around 4:00 am and wandered in the open at -40-something degrees wearing a diaper, a T-shirt and a pair of boots. Just by writing about it now 4 months later I am fighting my tears because I am in a public place. And no matter how long I will write about my feelings I am sure I’ll never be able to explain it. It’s like living Elijah’s suffering with him every time I remember, like right now.

Thanks to my neighbours I got some time off the writing before I start crying (Yes Men Cry! Live With It!).

In my faith nothing happens without the permission of the Almighty God, and I am sure that the Merciful God made it go easy for the Elijah without the suffering that I am imagining as He is more merciful with us than we imagine.

I also believe that nothing happens without a good reason. Immediately after the incident some safety experts showed up on TV and started a series of tips on how to child-proof your home so that other children will not have the chance to leave their beds and the whole building without their parents noticing.

Two things I may add to their tips though. One is going to be a high enough lock that can not be reached by a the toddler standing on a chair on top of a coffee table (this is my view based on how my home is furnished, you modify it based on your circumstances).

The other one is a tracking device. You know those tracking devices scientists use to track endangered species in nature installed under the skin or in the ear of the animal? Why don’t we have some of those for children as well?

They don’t have to be permanently installed on the body of the child, they can be warn in something like a bracelet around the child’s ankle every time they are going to be out of sight, like when they are in bed or in the play area.

As a marketer I have access to all kinds of products that need my marketing help, and I found this tracking device, TrackR Bravo, that can be used to track pets, keys, cars, wallets … basically anything. And the way it works is exactly what I was looking for.

This tracking device can be used via an iPhone or Android app that uses GPS to locate the item this device is attached to, giving you a sound warning when this item goes as far as 100 feet away from you, and you can track it directly with your app within 150 miles range, and if it goes further and another smart phone with the app installed on it comes as close as 100 feet to it you get a signal with a precise map location.

It is not only for toddlers and young children, even teenagers and adults could use this kind of technology. The number of kidnaps that end up with murder is scary to any parent. The kidnapper might make sure to get the phone from your kid, but they might not recognize a tracking device in the belt or bracelet.

This tracking device has been shipping out since March, so you can order it now without any waiting time.

You can order TrackR Bravo here.

It’s the kind of products I would recommend to my sister to track her kids and would be proud to say I do marketing for this product.

And if you do pray to God please keep it in your prayers to save all the children in the world from any kind of harm.
