Shipping Labels Print Too Small – eBay, Amazon

A common problem we often see with new eBay and Amazon sellers is that shipping labels print too small on their new label printer.
One quick survey found that most are using a new PC with a new Dymo or similar printer.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to edit your printer preferences from the current javascript preview window on (for example) eBay.

The solution is very easy:

Just verify that you have Adobe Reader installed and that it’s up to the latest version. You can get Adobe reader at: https://get.adobe.com/reader/

Be sure to uncheck the Optional offers or you’ll downloading all day and messing with your existing virus scan and saved password settings.

Downloading Adobe Reader Fix

Why this will fix the Small Label Printing issue:

If you are using a new PC opr never installed Adobe Reader, then Microsoft Edge will likely be handling your PDF viewing. This is were the problem seems to originate. Once Adobe is installed, you will be prompted to set Adobe Reader as your default PDF viewer. Since the labels are PDF files, this fixes the buggy edge PDF handler.

Be sure to verify PDF file associations:

Once the Adobe Reader install is completed, you can either right click on a PDF file and then  click Properties > General Tab > Opens With > Change and set the proper file association.
or
Open Control Panel > Control Panel Home > Default Programs > Set Associations to verify that the .PDF file type opens using Adobe Reader.

Verify the Driver Printer is Properly Installed:

Open Control Panel > Device manager > Printers
You should see your printer with no warning icon. Depending in the model, it may also appear in imaging devices.

Select the right Printer:

During the print process, be sure you select the proper printer. The print option panel varies, so if you are stuck, leave a comment below and I’ll try to walk you through it. Sometimes you have to select the closest compatible model which is tricky and occasionally requires some trial and error.

Reboot for Good Measure:

While the above procedures should do the trick all by itself, I suggest doing a quick reboot and then try again.
If the printer is not recognized, sometimes just unplugging and re-plugging in the USB will correct this.
Once you get it to print right once, you should be good to go moving forward.

Hope this helps fix your eBay and Amazon small print label problem. Please leave a comment below if this helped.

 

 

Highway Speed Cameras Solve Multiple Problems

As if the state’s gas tax were not high enough, Wisconsin is considering adding toll booths to it’s interstate system. This places an added burden on the already overtaxed and law abiding citizens as well as adding stop and go delays. Even though the sate currently prohibits their use, a much better approach would be to employ existing traffic camera technology to kill two birds with one stone.

70 does not mean 90:

A few years back, governor Walker increased speed limits from 65 mph to 70 mph. Sounds like nothing right?
Wrong. First, most drivers believe that 10 mph over the limit is fine, so seeing drivers doing 80mph and higher is common. Higher speeds around cities like Green Bay and the Fox Valley where multiple merges exits create a hazard that can be seen every day. Traffic fatalities are up and speeding is making these roads a meat grinder.

Combine Common Sense with Technology:

The solution is very simple. First would be to drop the speed limit to 65 mph around cities. Second would be the addition of speed cameras to each overpass with a small sign to indicate the driver is being photographed.
This alone would drop speeds to within the legal limit and help save lives.

Just the presence of empty camera housings and the sign would down traffic and save lives.  The problem is, humans learn quickly to ignore a simple trick like this. The next step is to deploy and arm a working camera system. Highway speed camera systems already exist, here are links to a few manufacturers:

  • https://www.speedcamerasuk.com/
  • https://www.atsol.com/
  • https://www.vitronic.com/

Save Lives, Reduce Taxes:

It’s will be debated whether s traffic speed camera system will actually save lives, but it can’t hurt. In 2016, we’ve seen a rash of police targeted in traffic stop shootings as well as random non traffic related shootings. This system takes the load of potentially dangerous traffic stops off of police officers. It can reduce traffic fatalities and help pay for road maintenance without having to increase taxes on everyone. The speed limit is a law. Breaking that law means you pay a fine and suffer the consequences for your own actions. It’s that simple.

Resistance is Futile:

While to some it may seem like Big Brother level oversight, perhaps it’s time to employ camera systems nationwide. Saving lives is the number one priority. Public acceptance is weak but with third party testing and certification and lighter fines, perhaps this can change.  Of course some people will try to thwart the system by using plate blocking lenses and sprays. The problem for these folks is that they are actually helping to improve the system accuracy by employing better technology.

website checklist

10 Point Website Checklist

So you are interested in starting a new website for your business. Where do you start?
Website technology has evolved into a jungle of options and your first priority should be to keep it as simple as possible. Let’s start with the basic necessities:

1. You will need a Domain Name.

We recommend using GoDaddy as your domain name registrar. However, when selecting and paying for your domain name, watch out for the up-sell. Most people wind up buying a domain name PLUS a web hosting account. DO NOT purchase GoDaddy web hosting as it is shared hosting on crowded servers. You should pay around $10 per year for you basic .com domain name. Other extensions are cheaper (.net, .org) and some are more expensive (.tv or other vanity extensions).

If you already have your domain name and you want a web designers to do work on your site, you will need to grant access to your domain account. GoDaddy is particularly friendly for this task as they feature a Pro account that most developers can use to safely access your account management features. Microlinx is a GoDaddy Pro access developer.

2. Your will need a Web Hosting Account.

Your domain name needs a place to live. Your web hosting account consists of a physical web server computer and a specific web hosting operating system (OS). The majority of site use UNIX or LINUX OS and a user interface or control panel to access hosting functions like setting up email accounts, databases or third party software like WordPress, Drupal or a myriad of other packages.  Usually the OS can be either LINUX or Windows Server. We personally recommend LINUX for all web hosting. Hosting account run in price from a budget shared account (multiple site on one server) which can start as low as $9.95 / month to dedicated web servers that start around $100 / month and can go as high as thousands of dollars per month. For new sites, we recommend starting small and scaling up as your needs increase.

3. Now you need Content.

Once your web server is up and running, you site is a blank slate. It’s then up to you to provide images, text and the story you’d like to convey to your potential customers.  If you provide this content, it will save you thousands of dollars. If you have to hire a professional photographer, videographer or copywriter to write your page content, you will pay between $50 and $100 per hour for their services. The best way to proceed is to storyboard your site (keeping it as simple as possible) and then sending the page content and images to your developer who will format it properly for your site and optimum web delivery using minimum bandwidth.

4. Secure Shopping

If you intend to sell a product or service, the jungle thickens as you must consider many more technical issues related to security. The first suggestion would be to find a stand alone solution that encompasses all the security requirements. Shopify is a great eCommerce solution especially for a company that is already selling product offline. They handle PCI compliance and can produce a secure website for a monthly fee. They also manage the upgrades that come along the way.

If you decide to use a developer, you will require a SSL certificate to be installed on your server, then you will need to go through the PCI compliance checklist. PCI compliance is not just a suggestion, it’s a requirement.
There are ways to simplify the process buy using third parties like Pay Pal and Stripe who do most of the heavy lifting on their end. While this whole process sounds complicated, we can make it simple and cost effective, especially for start ups. Contact us if you have any questions about PCI compliance and web site security.

5. Include the Legal Terms

Look at the bottom of any successful established eCommerce website. You should find several links to important business related pages. These pages include Terms of Service, Warranty, Return Policy, Privacy Policy. These are thing you should be thinking about when you develop your initial business plan and they must be conveyed to your customer.  There are several online source to free boilerplate legal forms that you can use.  Having this information readily available to your customers covers your liability and provides them instant access to your business terms. It completes the scope of your business website.

6. Driving Traffic

Once your new shiny website site is up and running, the real work begins. Have realistic expectations. If you have a new business or product with no name recognition and no previous web presence, then it’s time to start advertising.  Traffic does not just flow instantly to your site. It’s a very competitive jungle out there.

You can improve your changes of obtaining free organic traffic if you do the proper page optimizations known in the industry as SEO or Search Engine Optimization. Basically this involves focusing individual pages on specific key phrases that customers will find when they search Google, Bing or other search engines.  SEO services are not cheap. It requires a professional who understands the science of SEO and has studied the evolution of SEO since the beginning. We can do just that for your business at a more affordable cost.

7. Social Network Traffic

Other avenues you must explore are social networks. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest all attract huge numbers of visitors. Including interesting and compelling content to those users through your own social network accounts can drive free social network traffic to your website. Occasionally social network activity is not enough. You should be posting to social network on a daily or at the very least weekly basis. You might even try Facebook Ads, but they can be hit or miss.

8. Pay Per Click Advertising

If you have an advertising budget, PPC advertising is also another avenue. PPC – Pay Per Click advertising can run from 10 cents per click (not very effective) to over $5 per click or more.  On average and depending upon your market vertical, most PPC campaigns will cost around 40 cents per click. It’s best to consult with a professional PPC management consultant (we do that) before you get yourself into the PPC quagmire.

9. Website Maintenance

Just because you have completed your website does not mean the work is over. Today’s CMS (Content Management System) platforms require regular updates to stay ahead of developing security threats.
For example: The core software for WordPress is updated almost every month. WordPress plugin are updated along with the core and sometimes more frequently to add new functionality or security. These can be made to update automatically but occasionally new plugins will cause new issues with other plugins that require an experience eye to troubleshoot. Web servers also require occasional maintenance updates to PHP and SQL modules.  A managed hosting account with take care of these issues without your intervention.

10. Making a Name

Your brand is important. As mentioned in step 6, your goal is brand recognition or simple appeal. You can have no brand recognition, but a catchy name or tag line is what gets the bit. Your compelling company or product story then just needs to set the hook. Keeping that good name will require great ongoing customer service.

As you can see, building a website is no simple matter. This checklist should get you pointed into the right direction and create a better understanding for the overall requirements and expenses you can expect.
As mentioned in the beginning, it is always best to start simple then scale up as your business grows.

Using AOMEI Backupper for SSHD Upgrade

AOMEI Backupper is the simplest FREE backup software with system/disk/partition/file backups and system/disk clone. http://www.backup-utility.com

Free after sharing:

I always shy away from FREE utilities because some may contain malware or adware. The only gotcha with this utility is that you need to copy the first sentence you see above to either your social media pages or website. I decided rather than just share, I’d review it at the same time, hence this post. I am NOT being compensated in any way other than unlocking the functionality of the utility. A quick investigation indicates that others have used it without any issues. Their monetization model is that you share or purchase the Pro version for $49.95.

Clone HDD to SSHD:

This free utility claims it can clone your system drive to a new drive of any size. Unlike some other disk management tools I have tried (Paragon Disk Manager 14) it is able to copy the drive while Windows 10 is running. The user interface is very simple and intuitive. I am trying it myself as I write this post to clone a three partition 2Tb system drive to a new Seagate SSHD drive. The new SSHD (Solid State Hybrid Drive) drives combine the high speed of a solid state drive with the high capacity of a conventional hard drive.

Fast and Easy:

AOMEI Backupper looks like it runs fast completing 65% of the 2Tb drive in about 25 minutes. It’s still chugging away. It looks like it has already copied Volume 0 and Volume 1 quickly and is now working on Volume 2 which is 1.8Tb. I’ll update the post after completion. The larger partition will likely take a few hours.

Result:

After about 3 hours total time, the drive clone was completed. One thing odd was that it assigned a drive letter to each of the local disk and system reserved partitions. I used Paragon to remove those and set the data partition to the next available drive letter of P:.
I removed the old C: drive, upgraded my noisy accessory drive cooling fan, slapped the covers back on and rebooted.  To my enjoyment, the system booted right up and even converted the drive letter to C: automatically. Another computer job completed successfully. Both AOMEI Backupper and the SSHD are highly recommended. No reason to fear the upgrade, go for it!

Performance of the new SSHD:

All I can say is WOW! My old Western Digital Red NAS system drive was super slow. All programs were “doggy” when starting and if you pull up task manager and switch to the Performance tab, you could see the C: drive hitting 100% and staying there for 5 to 10 seconds. Photoshop took about 45 seconds to be fully ready, now it’s under 5 seconds and the drive never maxes out to 100%.
All programs are noticeably faster. What a great upgrade.

Flies on your Computer Display

Getting Rid of Flies on Your Computer Displays

Before I even get wound up about flies on computer displays, I want to clarify that if you have them, you are not necessarily a slob. The first thing one would assume is that anyone with flies buzzing around them might have a hygiene issue. Regardless, almost every time sit down in front of my computer I seem to be tormented by a variety of tiny flies usually working alone to distract my work.  It happens all year long. In fact, it’s happening now. Time to investigate.

Only a Side Effect:

Flies on your computer screen are just a side effect of  having flies in your office or home. They love flying in front of your face because that’s what flies do, and the fact that the heat and light attracts them. They’re just much easier to see when they land in your field of view while trying to blast aliens. If you’re working on a document, the white background amplifies the aggravation. If you try to poke the little buggers with your finger, they just hop or fly away. Only on rare occasions have I been able to nail one.

Big flies:

house-flyIf a big house fly manages to get in and focus its appetite on me, all work stops. They are usually easy to take out with an ordinary fly swatter. House flies can be controlled by closing the door and window screen. I’ve tried to convince my wife and kids of this solution to no avail.

More fun than a fly swatter, the Bug-A-Salt, a salt powered shot-gun for flies. Avoid electronics.

What Are They?

Those tiny flies on your computer screen are probably fruit flies or gnats. Both are likely there because of an attractive environment from which they came. While it may not seem to be a bounty to you, an old apple core, banana peel or bread crust is a universe of food to a tiny fly. It’s a good bet you have something in a nearby trash container that is generating the flies. Other critters like leaf hoppers and spiders might also be attracted to your work, but they are not ask pesky as flies.

Where they come from:

fruit-fly-trap Where do fruit flies come from? Are their eggs already in the food scraps and if not, how did they get there? Not to be commander obvious, but their baby Mamma probably flew by and laid them on your trash. How else?

Once the eggs are laid, they do what all flies do, they get gross. The first stage after hatching is the maggot stage. During this time, the maggots devour the garbage then advance to the fly stage. Once a fly, they are free to breed and aggravate you until you find a smart solution to take them out.

How to get rid of computer screen flies.

My first thought is usually to order something from Amazon. After all, they have everything. I don’t want nasty chemicals or sprays.
The best I could do was these sticky traps for $6.00 Prime. Simple Solution. I ordered them and will report back. The second option, fruit fly traps seems less effective according to reviews, but probably works fine. I ordered that too and will review.

Cheap, Simple Solution:

Here’s an old-fashioned way to get rid of fruit flies that you can make yourself in under a minute.

  • 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
  • a few drops of regular dish soap
  • place mixture in a glass jar with no lid
  • wait for the hungry flies to land and drown

I have used this method and it works wonderfully. Place the container 4 to 8 feet away from you. The idea is to draw they away from the monitor heat and light and to something more appetizing. The soap simply reduces the surface tension so they won’t float.  Since fruit flies only live a few days, you should be able to clean up your trap in no longer than a week. It you don’t then you could be a slob.

I like cheap homemade solution that I can deploy in a few minutes from now, not three days from now because by that time, that pesky fly will have died of old age already. Problem is; junior maggot is munching his way to adulthood to carry on the family business of irritating me.

The Fly Trick:

Now that you’ve mastered controlling computer display flies, you can play a trick on your friends, or if you miss all those flies you’ve taken out. Believe it or not, some mad scientist type has made a disturbing app for that. FLY ON DESKTOP is a program that places realistic house flies on your computer screen. I’m not kidding. Download it if you dare.

Website Design Job Scams

The Webmaster Scam:

We always like to think the web is an honest and friendly place, but you know the truth. The web is full of scams. One relatively new  way for unscrupulous miscreants to mislead and steal from you and possibly place you in a lot of financial trouble. This nefarious scheme starts with a fake web design quote request. We take all requests very seriously, but each request must be checked out and vetted before we actually proceed with a project.

Here’s a recent example of just such a scheme in action. It starts off sound legit enough..

Here is the job details

I have small scale business which i want to turn into large scale business now it located in TX and the company is based on importing and exporting of Agriculture products such as Kola Nut, Gacillia Nut and Cocoa so i need a best of the best layout design for it. Can you handle that for me ?. so i need you to check out this site but i need something more perfect than this if its possible .http://www.samplesite.com…. the site would only be informational, so i need you to give me an estimate based on the site i gave you to check out, the estimate should include hosting and i want the same page as the site i gave you to check out and i have a private project consultant, he has the text content and the logos for the site.

Note:

1. I want the same number of pages with the example site i gave you to check excluding videos and blogs.
2. I want only English language
3. I don’t have a domain yet but i want the domain name as desireddomain.com
4. you will be updating the site for me.
5. i will be providng the images, logos and content for the site.
6. i want the site up and running before ending of next month.
7. My budget is $3000 to $8000

Kindly get back to me with an estimate
Hope to read from you

Regards
Micheal

So, does this raise any red flags? It should.

Most clients are not so quick to pull the trigger, whilst these so called clients just about throw money at you. If it were only that easy. So what’s the harm? Well in earlier versions of this scam, the client would send bogus checks or money orders. Today they run it using credit cards. In most cases the third party consultant they mention requires a kickback. If you waste your time going any further than one or two emails it’s your own fault, unless you want to string them along for some fun.

Fresh Meat:

Here’s another one I received today. Still playing this one.

Scammer – “Hello, This is Josh Mary, I am hearing Impaired. can you handle web design for my new company. and do you accept credit.”

Me – “Sure, we can communicate online.
If you are interested, please provide some specific information about your project and basic contact information.
Thanks”
Scammer – “Thanks for your response.

Am so glad you responded so i will be glad if you can create my website for me.Here is the job details for the site i want created. the business is a salon and spa but it still a small scale business so i need a best of the best layout design for it.

 Can you handle that for me ?. so here is an example site i want you to check out this site but i need something

more perfect than this if its possible http://indocanadasalonandspa.com...  the site would only be informational, so E-commerce functionality is not needed on this site, so i need you to give me an estimate based on the example site i gave you to check out, the estimate should include hosting and also i want the site to be on word-press plus

 I want the same page as the site i gave you to check out and i have a private project consultant, whom has the text content and the logos for the site so there wont be any delays.

Note:

  1. My budget is $3000 to $11,000

2.I want the same exact numbers of pages with the example site i gave you to check

  1. I want the domain name as Josh-spa.com, cos i don’t have a domain yet
  2. Updating of the site will be by you guys
  3. the images, logos and content for the site will be provided by me.
  4. i want the site up and running before ending of Next Three month.

Kindly get back to me with:

(1) an estimate

(2) Are you the owner ??”

Me – “Josh:

The sample site is 25 pages. The estimate for a full WordPress implementation of a similar 25 site would be $8,500 NTE.
Extended SEO work after site completion and maintenance would likely require ongoing charges.
If you are buying that particular theme from a third party, that would reduce the price a bit.

Surprisingly josh-spa.com is currently available. I would require a $500 deposit to begin work. We will need to make payment arrangements, I can do this through PayPal. (I’m just jerking his chain now)

And yes, I am the owner. Can you tell me a bit more about yourself and your expectations for the site?”

Scammer ‘ “Thanks your price is attractive and okay, i will make a 50% down payment and which merchant will you be use to charge my card?”

That’s about where you should call it quits.

The Consequences:

Beside getting ripped off for your time, there are kick backs you will need to make to get your full amount. Then, guess what? Once you pay the third party consultant everyone disappears and the card is disputed and refunded or the card was stolen and funds yanked. If you were stupid enough to play along that far, you deserve it. This is a blatant scam that anyone should see.

Money Laundering:

In many cases, the potential client will be funneling money through you for bogus projects. You may be doing work, but you are also instructed to pay a third party “consultant” or “developer”. The resulting work will never be used…they just want to run the money through you to clean it for them.

That’s why they are happy to pay you in large amounts up to $10,000. Anything higher would send up the red flags at banks. This transfer of bad money to good money makes you an unknowing partner in their crime. Don’t try using ignorance as an excuse because you’ve now been warned. Research your clients as much as they research you.

Vetting Clients:

We never used to have to go through so much but it’s always advisable to get a PO number and the full billing department contact information of any company requesting work. I usually write up a work order, contract and attach a terms of service and deliverables.
Before any of that, I like to establish a relationship with the client at the very least over the phone or in person.
Ask questions and have your ducks in a row. This is business.

Be careful out there!
