Filipino metal-core band Valley of Chrome is releasing its fourth album, “Victorious,” on February 22. For “Victorious,” Valley of Chrome and manager Jeff Keenan have upped the ante. Beginning last July, the members of five-piece band stepped out of their comfort zone by performing at the Hammersonic festival (that featured a lot of international bands) in Indonesia. The band returned to the studio and recorded 10 blistering tracks that vocalist Rogel Africa describes as “the band’s heaviest” in its 16-year history. According to band manager Jeff Keenan, performing at Hammersonic made the band pay more attention to detail and be more technical in their music. “I think the results are for all to see and hear on ‘Victorious,’ ” he promised. “And to help elevate things to another level, we were able to get noted Brazilian painter, Marcelo Vasco, to do the cover for ‘Victorious.’ ” Fans of metal … [Read more...] about Metal band Valley of Chrome releases new album, Victorious.
Your browser is basically a bare-bones toolbox: It has everything you need to get the job done, but it’s just waiting for you to add more bits and pieces into its compartments. With the right set of add-one, it can become meaningfully more effective—and your work can become infinitely easier as a result. With Google’s Chrome browser, such add-ons come in the form of extensions—small programs that run directly within the browser and improve or expand its capabilities.

That’s why I made it my mission to seek out the most interesting and inspired Chrome extensions for productivity—pieces of software that significantly enhance the browser environment and add in smart new functions you’ll actually use. They aren’t all flashy, but they will all fill … [Read more...] about These 10 inspired Chrome add-ons will change the way you work

Currently dubbed as “Windows Lite,” it’s believed that the upcoming operating system will operate on lightweight and always-on devices.Several references to Lite OS were recently uncovered by Brad Sams from the IT publication Petri. References to Lite OS were found buried within the most recent Windows Insider build and software development kits (SDKs). Sams claims that this Windows Lite OS will be a restricted version of the full Windows 10 experience, much like Windows 10 S. This means that Lite OS will only be able to run Universal Windows Platform software and Progressive Web Apps.This new Lite OS pretty much sounds like Microsoft’s latest attempt at delivering a lightweight … [Read more...] about Microsoft Debuting New Chrome OS Competitor Called Windows Lite Next Year
By James Tarmy Bloomberg Tues., Nov. 20, 2018 In the late 1970s, Hugo Eppich’s twin brother Helmut was living in a house designed by Canada’s pre-eminent architect Arthur Erickson. “So when it came time to build a home of my own, I of course wanted an Arthur Erickson house too,” Eppich recalls. There was, he says, some resistance from friends and family. ”People said, ‘Why are you getting the same architect? You’re going to end up with the same house as your brother.” But Eppich persevered, and commissioned a steel and glass home set on a hillside in the British Properties neighbourhood of West Vancouver. “My brother’s house,” Eppich notes, “was totally concrete.” The Eppich brothers emigrated from Germany to Canada in 1953. In 1956, they founded Ebco Industries Ltd , a metal fabricator that, at its height, encompassed over 20 subsidiaries, and which today employs more than 200 employees. … [Read more...] about This $16.8 million Vancouver mansion is a waterfall of steel and chrome
