    "The house absolutely glows with a new-found beauty. Tom is a genius in his ability to coordinate the work done to my home. In between many raindrops, he managed to get the painting done in a few days and have Mike, the roofer, and his crew tear off and replace the shingles and wood in two days time. And even though I'm on the west side, Tom was able to catch me before I left for work around 8:00 a.m. Your company has really boosted the resale value of my house. I plan to engage you again for interior work in the coming years. Thank you for a job well done!"

  • 10 Mac Secrets You Didn’t Know About

    [caption id="attachment_5149" align="alignleft" width="401" caption="Secrets Of The Mac OS X Lion"]OS X Lion[/caption]

    I'm constantly learning about new programs and tricks that my Mac could do. For those who do have Macs, or are thinking of getting one as a gift, take a look at some of these secrets the Mac OS X Lion could do, courtesy of LifeHacker:

    10. Add New, High-Quality Text-to-Speech Voices

    Over the years, Apple's been working incrementally to improve the quality of the text-to-speech voices offered with its operating system. For awhile we just had Alex, the only somewhat natural-sounding computer voice in the collection. While that hasn't changed much, as far as the defaults go, you can add a bunch of new voices directly from OS X's VoiceOver Utility (in Hard Drive -> Applications -> Utilities). Just click the Speech pane and then select "Customize" from the voice selection menu. This will let you choose from all the options—including a lot of the fun novelty voices you might have thought went missing.

    9. Look Up a Word in the Dictionary with Two Taps

    Lion comes with a lot of new multitouch gestures, and hidden in the new set is the ability to look up a word with two taps. All you have to do is place your cursor over a word you want to look up, then tap the word twice with three fingers. This will highlight it in yellow and show you a heads up display with the word's definition. Of course, you'll need to turn this on in System Preferences -> Trackpad -> Point & Click first.

    8. Create Search Tokens When Searching for Files

    You'll find this functionality throughout applications in Lion, but it's especially useful when looking for files in the Finder. Basically, when searching you type in something like "Text" and are given some options in a drop-down menu. You might be looking for a file with "Text" in the file name or just a file that is made up of text. You can choose which one from this menu and it'll create a search token. Once a token is created, you'll start to get results. You can keep creating more and more tokens this way to refine your search, however, making it really easy to quickly locate the file (or files) you're looking for.
