Controlling the Bandwidth usage on your Roku, or Roku Plus

Does streaming video on your Roku make the Internet unusable for everyone else in the house? Are you up against your ISP’s bandwidth cap, and want to limit data usage? If so, you’ve probably browsed the Roku’s settings looking for a bandwidth cap, and found nothing.  But the Roku does offer a system-wide cap on bandwidth usage: it’s just a little hidden. On your Roku remote, you need to press a particular series of buttons in the right order.



WYSIWYG Web Builder Software's Responsive Website Design Features

Responsive Web Design in WYSIWYG Web Builder - With the increase in popularity of browsing on mobile phones and tablets it is becoming essential to create web sites that are optimized to the needs of these users.

Greetings, I am so glad you are here.  My name is Kim L. Rozell, web designer for this website.  I have been building websites for myself since 1997.  So, here I decided to go back to the old basics.... sharing information for information sake.

Today's trend is the Blog.  I like blogs, but I like Blogazines better.  Each month I plan to turn out a Blog-a-Zine with several useful articles, many with embedded videos to show you how you too can do something that you are interested in.

1776.CLUB is evolving into a fusion of the web-based blog and the old style classic magazine. The 1776.CLUB Blogazine is like a blog being that it is generally the thoughts of an individual rather than an organization. However, it is also like a magazine in two ways: the content is higher quality (i.e., more refined, more focused, and more selective), and, more importantly, the design of each blog post/magazine article is custom tailored to the content. A traditional blog will use a templated web design for each post. This blogazine post will evolve into a unique html and css underlying that make each post profoundly different and each post more like an article in a magazine.

What prompted me to create a “Blogazine” instead of a traditional blog?
I’m never satisfied with my work. Invariably, two weeks after finishing a design, I feel like I can do better. When I originally tried to design my blog, I kept finishing a design, hating it and starting over. This happened ten or twelve times until I finally hit on a basic design in which to build upon. Eventually, I realized that each post could stand on its own and be its own design that fit the content. Despite the holdbacks of HTML 5 and CSS, it has worked much better than I had even anticipated.

Does having a blogazine really boost your creativity when it comes to creating a post?
The blogazine style does seem to boost creativity, and by a huge amount. I feel an intense amount of freedom when I’m not constrained by the box of a pre-formed design. I can open PhotoPlus 8X, and WebPlus X8,  and use it as a word processor with design functionality. The design really does complement - and become - the content, because they are built simultaneously, without regard for any of the other stuff on the website I build with WYSIWYG Web Builder.

I feel an intense amount of freedom when I’m not constrained by the box of pre-formed design.  All of my articles are intended to be informational purposes, and not with the intent of taking a potshot at the internet noobs. I believe everyone is a noob at something or the other, myself included, as there is always something more to learn.

As this website expands, I hope it is becoming less quirky, less scrappy, and more polished, more professional, Bigger. In a word, more magazine-like.

Again, thank you for stopping by and reading 1776.CLUB, I am so happy that you are here.
