  1. Use the center to create big tiles, then move them to the corners to combine them with the ones already there.
    You have a never ending horizon to explore your interests.

    We always tend to tile the walls of our bathroom as well as
    the floors and many times the walls of our kitchen.

  2. Next to wood they are the safest and healthiest flooring you can use for your home.

    For a small living room space, select plain colored upholstery for sofas
    or chairs instead of bold plaids, stripes, or prints.

    There is a wide variety of kitchen counter tile
    available today.

  3. Popular floor tile sizes include 300 x 300mm, 333 x
    333mm, 400 x 400mm, as well as modular floor patterns.
    It is highly recommended to install these tiles in an area where there is a high traffic of people.

    Plex wolks fine until the ps4 v3.00 update.After a while says the server go away.Any reports….?

  5. Chris says:

    Plex, is absolute ***. The PS4 is good for pretty much nothing but games and streaming proprietary formats through fixed apps. Trying to get it to do anything else reliably is like pushing *** uphill with a sharp stick. If you want to use any consoles to stream movies music or tv shows from your own media player, go buy a couple of old Xbox 360s and watch as they instantly play as soon as you get it all plugged in correctly, as for trying to get ps4 to do the same thing, be prepared to have a fun time re-encoding your videos 50 times to get the right combo of video or audio formats, then when youve found it, be prepared to re-encode EVERY SINGLE VIDEO YOU HAVE in EXACTLY the same format…. then youll find youll still have some that just plain wont work. I also find that files that were absolutely fine on any other system, will claim ‘audio format not supported’ ‘cannot play file’ playing for 5 minutes then having a screen full of artefacts, random dropouts from the PS4. Its just plain not worth it full stop. PS4 – Awesome for games, but not for anything else. Dont bother.

    Easier to plug hdmi into pc and tv and get the rigjt channel up an voila

    It’s not cheaper to buy an HDMI cable. Key word is FREE. And yes it works on android, pc, mac, and linux. All you need is a browser. It uses HTML5. Anyone who knows anything about online gaming and streaming SHOULD know how to set up a static ip and manage ports, firewall, and NAT. (hint: google and login to your router and/or modem…starts with 192.168 most of the time). Be patient. READ ALL OF THE DIRECTIONS. PREFER AAC PER CLIENT. PER CLIENT. PER CLIENT. AND STOP MENTIONING XBOX like it’s a cure all for failures. If you can’t figure it out don’t whine and toss salt on someone’s post. If it’s slow, it’s you or your hardware or your network…or Plex.

    I tried all of the ‘advice’ given above & none of it works on my PS4. I have come to the conclusion that for media playback, the PS4 is *** & a disappointment. And PLEX, is just *** as well. I’ve tried everything suggested & it still tell me the movie is unwatchable. Plex is rubbish!

  12. Everything iѕ vеry open wіth а really clear description oof the challenges.
    Іt was rezlly informative. Ⲩour site is veгy
    useful. Tһanks for sharing!

    why wouldn’t you just use ps3 media server? it works fine on ps4. maybe a few fewer supported formats that what was on ps3 in the end but it’s fine for streaming 99% of my music, movies, and pictures. it integrates into the ps4s built in media center app. the organization maybe isn’t the greatest but it’s free and it works

    • Andy T says:

      HI juice, thanks for the advice! I never realized you could use the PS3 media server on ps4 until you mentioned it. I’m using it now and it works flawlessly. 🙂

    These loans are only for those low credit score holders
    that are facing troubles in repaying their multiple debts.

    What’s up, this weekend is nice in support of me, since
    this point in time i am reading this fantastic educational post here at my house.

  21. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images
    and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Superb blog!

  22. Click Here says:

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got
    an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe
    you could space it out better?

    For some reason I can’t pick my other HDD’s as sources for media in Linux. I’ve got a lot stored on those other spaces so it’s a bit annoying. Does anybody know how to fix this? Thanks.

  24. I needed to leave a comment, man do I’ve a hard time
    a blog. Im endeavoring to kick start one on my website and
    I must say
    its challenging at all. I do admire people like yourself who are
    able to reveal anything easily. Keep up the good
