Looking at some of the other threads where people are recommending other members of Tulsa Now to each other, I thought we might start a thread to showcase what each of us do, so that we might be able to do business together.  We can keep it anonymous for those who like to hide behind trees.  You can simply PM the member if their offering appeals to you.

Use this format:

This is what I do in my spare time...when I'm not being a private eye, that is.


Type of business: Freelance writer

Product or service: Primarily technical writing on electronic-related subjects, but includes bicycling, photography, history, humor, and more. Specialization is for insects.

Average customer size: One.

Perfect customer: A perfect client states his requirements clearly and concisely, doesn't change them after copy is submitted, and doesn't demand countless re-writes.

Years in business: Three (for profit.)  Twenty five (for publication.)

Corporate office city:  Wherever I happen to be sitting!

I've been told that writing is much like prostitution.  First, we do it for fun, then for a few close friends.  Finally, we do it for the money.

Type of business: ...High Speed internet.


Man could I use someone with those skills to get this damned internet router to put out enough signal for all corners of my house. Also, looking for the right guy to track down my architect and give a good talkin to about the location of my office.

Just use two APs (or however many are necessary to get the coverage you require). If you don't have network between the two locations, use your cable TV lines with a pair of MoCA bridges. You can use a range extender, but that cuts the wifi speed in halfish. You could also get a more sensitive router/AP, but then you just end up with annoying dead spots. It shouldn't cost more than a couple hundred in parts.

Personally, I'd probably buy two Actiontec MI424WR routers for $25 each on eBay to use as bridges (their wireless radios are old and crappy, but they're cheaper than purpose-built MoCA adapters) and a couple of dual band wireless routers that can be configured to work in AP-only mode. If I had $600 to spend on APs at the time, it would be a couple of Unifi Pro APs. If not, probably whatever Linksys or D-Link was on sale at Amazon or wherever.

Are we going to get into one of those "my router is bigger than your router" competitions?
