Short-lived Canpages Writing Gig

I provide writing/blogging services for Helium Content Source (https://www.heliumcontentsource.com) and the latest assignment was to write short 300-500 word articles for Canpages, advertised as Canada’s fastest growing local search company.

Helium uses a great dashboard for article submissions, edits, and approvals. Canpages uses WordPress for the blogging platform and when articles are approved at Helium, a second set of edits and approvals happen at Canpages. I was able to get 4 articles published at Canpages before the assignment came to an end for me.

Here are the published articles, and they are tailored to Vancouver -centric stories in lifestyle, entertainment, and restaurants linked below.

60 Days of Udacity: A Bertelsmann Technology Scholarship in AI

I applied and was recently awarded the Bertelsmann Technology scholarship where a group of students take part in an Artificial Intelligence track made up of 5 parts to be completed in 3.5 months.  As part of taking the class, we have to take part in a slack channel where we post our daily studies for 60 days reflecting on what we have learned. This is a transcription of those 60 days. The public github wiki is located here https://github.com/chromilo/udacity-bertelsmann-scholarship/wiki  Day 1:  I am in p3  (Datasets) doing the xray annotation project.

Unable to get to computer BIOS because monitor goes to sleep at startup?

I just enrolled in a course that requires running virtual machines on my Windows 10 Pro computer using VirtualBox. I couldn't start the virtual machines because of this error "The native API dll was not found (C:\WINDOWS\system32\WinHvPlatform.dll)". After doing some troubleshooting, I found this to mean that the hardware acceleration settings required by the CPU to support virtualization are currently disabled in my computer BIOS. I had to enable virtualization on my CPU chipset (VT-x/AMD-V).  Seems easy enough, right? I rebooted my computer and was expecting to see the memory counter and options to get into the BIOS. It must have been so quick that it took me straight to Windows 10 login prompt right away. I tried again and as usual I am immediately back to Windows 10 login. Each time I reboot, there is a box that says my monitor is going to sleep and does not wake again until presented with Windows 10 login prompt. I can hear the disk and fans spinning during startup,

Troubleshooting Microphone Problems using Fortnite on PS4

My son has been playing the popular game called Fortnite www.epicgames.com/fortnite/ on PlayStation 4 for many months now. There is social component to the game where a team of players collaborate by using their headset and microphone in their party/group chats. One day, the microphone on my son’s headset stopped working in Fortnite.  The troubleshooting that father-son had to go through to fix the issue is worth blogging about because I couldn’t stand seeing him get declined from Battle Royale party invites and just playing the game solo which isn’t as fun. For a few days, he would FaceTime his friends on our iPad so that they can talk on the side while playing Fortnite on PS4. You probably won’t want to go through that scene as well so I thought it’s time to put in some of the troubleshooting skills that we are so good at and put that to good use so that others can benefit from our experience. Here are 4 phases you will likely go through to try and fix this. 1) The first thing that
