Tax Return

April 4, 2008 Leave a comment
I saw an interesting article about tax exempt for Thailand, please go to the article 22 in the following link.

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-trty/thailand.pdf

To file the tax return form 1040NR-EZ, the followings are what we are going to prepare:

  1. File the 1040NR-EZ
  2. W-2
  3. Put 1) and 2) in an envelop
  4. Send it to the IRS

By direct-deposit option, we will get back our money into the bank account around 1 month after you mail the form to IRS. However, I heard some people use “e-file” option, much faster than mailing and we can get the money back within a week or two! However, this e-file option is not eligible for non-resident students. Again, also I heard some non-resident students succeed with this e-file option and get money back within a week or two.

Art of Communications

April 2, 2008 Leave a comment

Today I had a chance to attend a very good seminar about Art of Communications: Marketing you ideas. The presenter was Megan Gales, the director of communications. Her presentation was so great; the slides look stylish and persuasive. The slides were made by Keynote from mac. Please check this website for the power of this keynote, it’s amazing! I got entertained through the whole presentation.

I’m just wondering if can I make Powerpoint look very stylish like that of keynote?

Anyway, this is the first time I heard about the unit that can help UF students and faculty to create a great communications skill. They even have graphic consultant! Ummm…UF provides such a great facility for its community.

Transfer existing domain names to another web-hosting company

April 2, 2008 Leave a comment

Q. Can I transfer existing domain names to Bluehost?

A. Absolutely. To transfer an existing domain name just use the transfer client option when placing your order through the on-line order form. Once your account is setup, follow these steps, make sure to read all of the information before initiating the transfer.

1. Contact current registrar to unlock the domain and change the name servers to
ns1.bluehost.com and ns2.bluehost.com “Please wait 24 hours for the name servers to propagate”.
2. Login in to BlueHost cpanel.
3. Click on domain manager.
4. Click on the registrar transfer icon (looks like two circling arrows).
5. Complete the registrar transfer wizard.
6. Respond appropriately to all emails sent from your current registrar and BlueHost.com.

Note: All of the emails will be sent to the administrative contact for the domain name. You will want to make sure when you are unlocking the domain name that you update all of the contact information for your domain name. Also please allow 24 hours for the domain name to unlock before you initiate the transfer process. The transfer process can take up to 10 business days make sure that your domain name will not expire in this time frame as this could create potential problems with the transfer.

Also when doing the transfer of the domain our registrar will require that you add an additional year to the domains registration which will cost 10 dollars per domain. “Unless this is your main domain, in which case BlueHost.com will pay the 10.00 fee”. The transfer process can take up to 7 days so make sure that the name servers are pointing to bluehost’s name server to avoid service interruption.
