What Can Affect Your Broadband Connection

We can all relate to that feeling where we type something on the internet’s search bar, press search only to have to wait for a good few minutes and then the explorer page to say that there is a problem with our internet connection. We also understand the feeling of watching a 5 minute video in 15 minutes because it keeps stopping to buffer. Slow internet connections can put a lot of things at a stop for us at our home. While broadband connections are the fastest options out there, there are still a few factors that can affect the connectivity of your broadband connection.

  • First of all, your broadband cable provider will have a role in this matter since they are the ones that are responsible for how much output is flowing through your broadband cable. You can do a bredband fiber bäst i test to check the speed of your connection.
  • Another factor that can affect your broadband connection speed is the location of your apartment and residence because some areas do not have a proper established connection or have outside interferences that can lead to issues in connectivity.
  • The type of building you live in and its distance from the nearest exchange is also another factor to keep in mind.
  • The types of wires in your house also play a role in this since fiber optic cables tend to have copper wires in them and the interplay of your house’s wires and the broad band’s wires can play a part in how your internet connection differs.

If you have more questions and concerns, you can contact your broadband internet provider today to learn more about how connections can change and vary, and what you can do to possibly ensure better connectivity in your house.

How to Print Like a Painter

If you are someone who is familiar with the process of printmaking through the process of lithography, then it is safe to say that you must have seen a couple of different types of lithography that is done in the modern day and age. It was a privilege for me to spend time with Mark Hunter and learn about waterless lithography along with all the intricate details that come with it.

The purpose of this article is to inform people about how they can master the art of lithography, and make some of the finest art there is. The process itself is not that difficult at all, you just need to be patient, and let everything go with the flow, and I can assure that the overall experience will be much better.

Before I began, I think it would be a smart idea to look at the process, because that does play an important role. If you want, you can start taking inspiration or references from sketchbooks. Once you have the reference regarding what you want to draw, the remaining process becomes much easier.

Step 1

The first step is to prepare the aluminum plate by degreasing it and treating it with sodium metasilicate, once that is done, the plate is ready to be drawn on, making the process much simpler as well.

Step 2

Now that you have readied the plate, it is time to start applying the toner solution. Now when it comes to applying the toner solution, there are multiple options you can go for. For starters, you can use paintbrushes, lollipop, sticks, as well as sponges. You can even use toothbrushes if you want as long as you know what you are doing.

I opted for a set of large paint brushes that were really useful, and helped me achieve a proper effect.

Step 3

The next step involves using a heat gun to ensure that the image is bonded to the plate, at this point, you can actually make the changes.

Step 4

Now you have to take a solution of non-paintable silicone and white spirit until its consistent like runny honey, and spread it onto the entire plate. Once that is done, buff the surface using a firm sponge by wrapping it into tissue. Leave the plate overnight so it can be cured properly.

Step 5

You can now wash the tray out using a tissue along with acetone, make sure that the tissue is well soiled.

Step 6

Drag and scrape the ink to create a bead at the top of the workstation. You can place a sub plate under the main one that will be able to get all the rejected ink.

Step 7

Now that the plate itself is printed, you can go ahead with the printing. A smooth paper is required to make sure that you get the best possible results. However, you can make a few test prints to know which paper is the best one for your needs.

How Blockchain is Making Art Better

Normally, when we talk about blockchain, most of the people start talking about its link with crypto currency, however, it is important to understand that blockchain is a system that can give us some really amazing possibilities for artists, as well as the art world.

There are several ways how blockchain can make the art better, there are some really interesting applications to. I know blockchain is associated with crypto currency, but recently, it has been proven that it is way more than that, and after exploring almost all the options there are, I can testify that blockchain really is an important piece of technology in the world of art.

Let’s look at them below.

NFC Chips

I am sure you have seen NFC chips in your debit card, and credit cards. These chips can actually be attached to the art at any given location, and in the cheap, there can be information about the art being authentic, on the other the hand, the information would be stored on the blockchain, so when the chip is scanned, it will automatically confirm its authenticity thanks to its link with the blockchain.

The Place of Origin

Forgery is already bad as it is, however, there are people who are posting someone else’s art on the internet claiming that it is there. However, the good thing is that once you register an art piece on the blockchain, it would be nearly impossible for anyone to forge that, and people will be able to buy authentic art with ease.

Shipment

Suppose you are an artist, and you have to ship your work to another city or a country; how do you know that it is going to arrive in one piece, or it won’t be swapped out with a fake? Thankfully, if you register the art with blockchain, you will have the proper information. In addition to that, whenever art is being monitored, the exposure to light and humidity is something that is monitored.

There are a lot of possibilities when it comes to blockhain and shipment of art.

Artist Payment

At the moment, artist only makes a profit when the piece of the art is sold. However, auction houses manage to take up the most of the profit by raising the prices. This means that the profit margins for most of the art houses are insane, and this is only growing further. With blockchain implementation, artists will be able to track their art pieces, and perhaps be able to take a percentage.

Conclusion

While blockchain is slowly maturing and becoming more and more powerful, it is only a matter of time before blockchain makes it way to artists, and start getting implemented in the artworks as well. Now the good thing here is that you don’t need to invest a lot of money in order to implement blockchain. Plus, it is relatively easy to implement as well, so you really don’t have to worry about running into unnecessary difficulties.
