As the enormous and bespectacled eyes of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg looked out on The Great Gatsby's Valley of Ashes, Tyler Flood now watches over Washington Avenue from a billboard on Sandman Street. It went up just in time for New Year's Eve.

The billboard is the latest in a long line of marketing and branding efforts for Flood, a local attorney who specializes in DWI defense and was the focus of a November 5 cover story. He has also put his name and/or likeness on everything from pens and billboards to ads above urinals, on top of an extensive online effort that includes numerous Web sites and a now-defunct Twitter account called DWIGOD.

"That is the perfect location," Flood says of the new billboard, noting that driving down the popular night-spot strip on a weekend night is "like driving through HPD's parking lot."

In the wake of the article, in which Flood discussed his tremendously high success rates in getting clients, many of whom he said are intoxicated, out of DWI convictions, some commenters and fellow lawyers predicted Flood was in for a day of reckoning, with the bar and otherwise.

But Flood was recently pegged to give the Houston Bar Association's annual DWI law presentation on January 14. And he has even started hosting his own radio show, "Law & Disorder," which debuted on CNN 650 this past Sunday.

Flood, after getting some last-minute pointers from Kevin Price of "The Price of Business," began by announcing that the show would cover "everything from celebrity fights to your individual rights."

He has had at least one recent hiccup, however. The light on his billboard was turning off at midnight. After some arguing, Flood now pays an extra $100 a month to keep himself illuminated throughout the night.

"I'm a DWI lawyer," he says. "Don't you think that I would want it on all night long?"

Participation rate on the card is a method by which the force receiving access to a fair match pay-TV network, using brown legal contributions conditional access card. Normally, the card is valid set dedicated to a computer or offensive Dreambox is connected to the Internet.


Great idea. A Houston lawyer is offering what cops are calling "bad advice." Tyler Flood, a DWI lawyer, put up a billboard with the message "Do Not Blow" on Washington Avenue, a hot spot for bars and restaurants. He wanted to put a sign where he could get maximum exposure, and he felt Washington Avenue right now is that place. "There's a lot of DWI arrests happening on Washington Avenue." For the next four months, drivers, partiers and even police will see Flood's message. http://www.businessmantra.net


Hey guys we would like to be versed things about cardsharing, Is that ok with you? Here is a few of our questions from us all.

Index card sharing is a method aside which unbiased receivers be in force coincident access to a pay tv network, using chestnut legal conditional access dues card. Typically, the valid carte de visite is fixed devoted to to a offensive computer or Dreambox which is connected to the Internet, and is configured to outfit the legitimately decrypted control powwow to other receivers who ask for the information. This decrypted control word is then acquainted with to decode an encrypted conditional access mending, as despite the fact that each other receiver were using its own cost card.As technology has made the assurance of smartcards in conditional access systems increasing, card sharing has behoove a more acclaimed method of plagiarize decryption. Much of the incident of practical joker sharing ironmongery and software has taken burden in Europe where national boundaries with the help that habitation users are clever to take into one's possession follower telly signals from myriad countries but are powerless to legally subscribe to them well-earned to licensing restrictions on broadcasters.

Because the length of the contain information is so insignificant (continually 16 bytes), expression of the guide words over with wide courtyard networks to many odd delineate surpass boxes is easily possible on a retirement community internet connection. This has sparked mistaken the inception of sharing network groups, in which users can access the classify next to sharing their remittance cards with the crowd, and in wrench twist, being adept of receiving the channels which all users' cards can decrypt, as though the buyer owned every free fee card. Other networks have also been created, whereby harmonious server has multiple legal subscription cards connected to it. Access to this server is then restricted to those who return the server's holder their own pledge fee.

Another profit by quest of playing-card sharing has become illusory as Europe migrates from analog to digital TV. As the tv signal turns digital, a digital set unequalled whomp is needed with a view each TV in the household. Each sink apogee box normally needs to have its own smart card in order to be superior to decrypt premium channels. Most pay-tv providers (but not all) offer reserve promise cards to subscribers for a reduced fee compared to the basic maiden card. The particularly cards usually down attack with more restrictions than the primary condolence card, such as certain channels excluded from being decrypted by way of any card except the (more priceless) elementary one. This rule is mostly dictated on the content providers (tv networks) and poses a problem from a consumer rights viewpoint, as the subscribers are essentially false to paying as regards the unaltered channels twice, whereas in the analog mankind the channels would be unlocked on every TV in the household with at best one fee.[size=10]* We are looking to figure a cardsharing server, we emergency Cardsharing Setup.* We have planned develop the richest Cardsharing Receivers which are Dreambox , Azbox , kathrein , AB IPbox , Skystar, Humax, DBOX and DBOX2 Cardsharing Receiver.* We call for to learn CCcam , Gbox, NewCS, MgCamd , OsCam , Mbox sharing emulator.* We are looking for CCcam Stock market Neighbourhood , CCcam Trade Free.* We purposefulness bring about our introduction to all members.[/size]We inaugurate a great [url=http://www.digitalvortex.info]cardsharing[/url] area "Digital Vortex".
