Best Silent Desktop Case Fan I’ve Ever Had

My HP Pavilion Elite e9220y case fan was dying, evidenced by the loud whine that my computer gave off intermittently. After a lot of digging I finally came upon the Nexus silent case fan; this is by far, the best fan I have ever put into a computer case myself. I have an extra fan I keep in my cabinet above my mini-tower so that I can immediately replace any other fans that may die in the next coming year. When my computer is at 70 – 90% CPU utilization all I hear is a light hum, when the machine is less busy, I can barely hear the fan spinning.

Modest Budget Doesn’t Always Mean Modest Results

A production budget of only $15,000 netted a gross revenue of $107,918,810 for Paranormal Activity (2009). Oren Peli spent over half that budget on equipment and editing software. Oren Peli’s net worth is around 22.7 million which I am guessing is what led him to easily be able to quit his day job as a software programmer and go into film directing full time. I am inspired by what he has accomplished with simple tools and modest budgets.

 

 

How to keep table cell width fixed while keeping cell height dynamic?

Below this text is the code for my simple little table for the new newsletter format. The problem I am currently having is the cells expand width wise, and this causes misalignment of the table cells as the reader scrolls down the issue of the newsletter.  I DO need variable height…it’s the width of each cell that needs to be equal…I don’t know what to add to accomplish that though =-/

 

Here is the code as it is now:
