Inspire Wi-Fi – Get Connected!

7 12 2010

Welcome to 4343 at the Parkway’s Community-Wide Wireless Network!

In a continuing effort to improve our amenities and resources to the community, we have partnered with Inspire Wi-Fi to provide a Community-Wide wireless internet network for our residents and guests. In your apartment or in any common areas, your high-speed internet connection will be available.

To make connecting to the internet as easy as possible, no passwords or user ID’s are required. You are required to access the internet through your browser each time. You will not be able to access various tools, such as Outlook, without going through the browser first, which ensures our authentication/security process.

The Wi-Fi solution does not support devices like Xbox Live, Vonage, Skype, movie downloads, streaming online classes or other high bandwidth applications. If you require more bandwidth, we recommend a dedicated wired connection and use the Wi-Fi solution provided by your community for emailing and other basic internet programs.

The wireless network runs on all current versions of Windows and Mac. If you have a desktop PC or a laptop without an integrated wireless card, you can purchase a wireless card at retailers such as Best Buy or Office Depot. All you need is a 802.11 capable device.

For 24×7 Tech Support, call 1-877-APT-WIFI, Option 2 or email our support team @ support@inspirewifi.com.

Thanksgiving Turkey Spoon Craft

2 11 2010

This cute turkey craft is a good project for kids, and it uses up leftover plastic spoons.

There was no tomfoolery here. This youngster followed in her mother’s footsteps to design a pleasing project. “Mom was making crafts for a fund-raiser at my school, and I wanted to do something, too,” explains April L. of Detroit, Michigan.

To April, a bird in the hand was a fun choice. “I decided to make a turkey out of a spoon, because I’d never seen one decorated for Thanksgiving before,” she says. “I thought foam feathers would be pretty to use. My family and friends also liked it.”

Ready to dress up a project of your own? Just ask a parent for the materials and any help you need, then follow the simple instructions here.

You Will Need
Patterns (below)
Tracing paper
Pencil
Scissors
White plastic spoon
Scraps of craft foam in five colors, including red (April used Foamies)
Two 10 millimeter wiggle eyes
Scrap of gold felt
Low-temperature glue gun and glue sticks
6-inch-long stick of hard candy or small sucker
Transparent tape

Red River Rivalry

2 10 2010

The Red River Rivalry, commonly known as the OU-Texas Game or the Texas-OU Game, is the name for the annual college football game between the University of Texas Longhorns and the University of Oklahoma Sooners. The series is considered one of the greatest rivalries in American sports.[1] Both schools consider the game to be one of their biggest rivalries, alongside their in-state rivalries with the Texas Aggies, for the Longhorns, and the Oklahoma State Cowboys, for the Sooners. The name is derived from the Red River that forms part of the boundary between the U.S. states of Texas and Oklahoma. The game originated in 1900, while Oklahoma was still a United States territory and the Oklahoma campus was still in Oklahoma Territory.[2]
