    So, we have all heard about computer networking, and we are familiar with such terms such as LAN (Local Area Netowork), Ethernet, and others. But what exactly is a network, and how can it be beneficial to have one implemented in your business? Let’s take a quick peek and see if we can find a few answers.

    In essence, a network is a way of interconnecting a group of computers that are usually close to one another. The main purpose of creating a network is to simplify and allow the flow of information and resources among different computers and their users. The first known computer network was created to benefit the United States Department of Defend in the late 1960’s so that information could be exchanged in an easier, quicker, and perhaps more secretive manner.

    There are three main methods in which computers are connected today: through Ethernet, which is a physical cable that attaches to each computer, which involves the use of bridges, routers, hubs, and switches; fiber-optics, which allow for greater distances between computers, with quicker communication between them; and one of the most popular, the Wireless LAN connection, which involves only a small router and no wires at all, as the name suggests.

    One great benefit that many offices frequently take use is office e-mail. Instead of making phone calls, scheduling a meeting, or trying to make an announcement, supervisors may quickly jot down a memo and disperse it to whomever they need to see it–the whole office, or an exclusive group of employees. This also allows for the secure transmission of confidential information, such as financial records, which in turn cuts down on unnecessary paperwork.

    Having a network in the office also allows for several conveniences. One such is a document repository. This creates a space for public folders, which can be accessed through the exchange server.

    Public folders may contain items that all employees may need to access, like the employee handbook or vacation schedules. This can make it easier to bring on new employees, as they will have many helpful hints right at their fingertips so that they will not have to run to a supervisor every time they forget what to do–they can simply look it up!

    Electronic time clocks are also very useful to employers. Clocking in and out is often done through a secret pin number and an electronic fingerprint reader. While we would all love for our employees to be wholly honest citizens who would never have someone clock in or out for them, this is an added measure to prevent such behaviors.

    All in all, an office computer network provides many benefits and conveniences to its users as it helps in streamlining communication among all workers.

    The word geek pertains to an odd person, an enthusiast, an expert-overly obsessed with things such as technology, intellect and the alike. Nerd, gimp, dweeb , dork and spod are akin to being a geek.

    Nerd is a socially awkward person who had learned technical skills through the spare time they enjoy from being neglected. However, dork, still a socially awkward person but he doesnt have the intelligence to fill the void with technical pursuits. A dork is forced to do foolish activities. He is mostly alone with an XBOX (a video game console from Microsoft) and likes playing Halo (a science fiction video game) all day, everyday. Nevertheless, geek is an outwardly normal person who devotes his time to learn technical skills. They have a normal social life like anyone else. You can tell someone “hes a geek”, if they acknowledge their own skills.

    Earlier, geek is being described as an insult but recently turns out to be a compliment, a badge of honor to a particular field, an extra ordinary skill. In recent history, some geeks have promoted geek culture like for instance a geek humor and design a fashion statement like the so called geek chic. But still the definition remains to that of a person engrossed in his area of interest at the value of social skills, personal hygiene and status.

    To be a computer geek is profitable and very fulfilling. Why? The highest paying jobs available and highly in demand is to be a computer guru or a geek. Becoming a computer geek means you have to learn a lot of computer stuff. Like for instance, you must learn the hardware and software of your computer, the specs (meaning technical specifications) of a computer, how to use your computers command line, learn to ask about anything, learn a programming language (CSS, HTML for web pages) and basic repair procedures, interact with others, learn to recognize computer viruses, spyware, etc., use a restrictive firewall and an open source operating system (BSAD or linux), use shortcuts, know how the internet works, always remember to keep things simple and expand your knowledge.

    A true computer geek never stops learning. They are always open to something new and if they dont understand, they ask for help. Their objective is to collect knowledge and put things together into a perspective. Frequently, they read articles on Wikipedia. They too join computer forums for programming languages or just mere regular forums. Computer geeks do not talk with chat room languages but use command line to write instead. They are as always a person with genuine interest and passion on computer technology who wants to learn everything.

    What are Single Board Computers

    When most people think of computers, the image of a PC or laptop comes to mind. Some may even recall the football field size computers of the 1960’s and 70’s before the emergence of the PC. Very few people would picture single board computers , even if there was one sitting right in front of them! A single board computer is the terminology used for a printed circuit board that contains a processor, memory, I/O (input/output) and a clock. Single board computers (aka SBC’s) resemble the motherboard contained in a typical PC, but include all the elements of a basic computer within it’s small design. Since the early 1980’s, the technology behind this type of computers has been used in industrial manufacturing and computerized product design to apply basic processing functions for high-tech product features.

    Usage of Single Board Computers

    Also commonly referred to as embedded computers, single board computers are used in products from airplanes and rocket ships, to toys and high performance athletic shoes. Almost everyone uses single board computers without being aware of their existence. Most products that utilize computer technology (such as fax machines, cameras, cell phones, etc) contain embedded single board computers. While these tiny computers can host a full size operating system such as Windows XP, most SBC’s have internal operating systems that take up much less space. Simpler operating systems equal a lower cost per computer. Software for single board computers is generally contained on a flash memory system or ROM chip. Quality indictors for single board systems include processor performance, I/O compatibility, SSD storage and wireless capabilities.

    Pros and Cons of Single Board Computers

    There are both advantages and disadvantages to using SBC’s for industrial and product enhancement. Deciding whether or not to implement single board computer technology is largely a matter of application necessity and cost. Some of the deciding factors on using them include:

    + Pro : Current technologies have increased the capability of the single board computer, while reducing its size and cost.

    + Pro : Wireless technology has made it possible for easy internet access via SBC.

    + Pro : The competitive market has greatly expanding the options and functionalities available for SBC’s.

    + Pro : Advanced computer technology offers reliability for industrial manufacturers and quality products for vendors using SBC’s.

    – Con : Incorporation can be costly for high volume products and applications.

    – Con : Some applications require customized sizes or I/O functions that are not compatible with standard SBC’s.

    Single Board Computer Technologies

    While all SBC’s are built using similar standards, different technologies can be included with individual SBC’s. Video capability, Ethernet access functionality and digital computer technologies are just some of the features that can be incorporated into a single board computer. In general, SBC’s can be as simple or as complex as an application demands. Additionally, supplemental hardware such as backplanes and mezzanine structures can significantly increase the functionality of a single board computer.

    For the first time in a web browser’s era, we are witnessing real action behind a browser other than Internet Explorer. The most browser history we can remember, major and widely accepted internet browser was Internet Explorer.

    In late 90s, there was a time when Netscape was trying to claim superiority in that browser market share, but Internet Explorer walk away winning a lions share. However at present, for the first time Microsoft is facing tough competition. The new contender of Internet Explorer is “Firefox”, which is likely to take advantage of the security concerns that is counted as loop holes in Internet Explorer structure.

    A browser from the producers of Mozilla, Firefox is drawing massive attention. Firefox is a browser that focuses on opening websites rapidly while keeping malicious pop-ups and spyware a side.

    While, at final stages Firefox luckily was picked for the upcoming browser two federal agencies that recommended Internet users to select browser other than Internet Explorer for the first time, because of security concerns.

    Internet users began switching over Firefox after facing numerous security issues with Internet Explorer. Users believe that Internet Explorer has not actually been upgraded since beginning of 20s. Users have to download the patch known as Service Pack 2 as well as upgrade their system up to windows XP for more secured Internet Explorer.

    Internet Explorer use to hold around 95 percent of market share for web browsers but slide down to nearly 92 percent in just the few months. This might seem a few percentage points, but these few percentages depict millions of people who have switched over to Firefox from Internet Explorer.

    It shows that Firefox is becoming widely accepted by millions of its fans, for its excellent features such as download speed, outstanding user interface along with its pop-up blocker.

    But the biggest advantage for Internet Explorer is that most websites are still built to work best with Microsoft’s browsers. It may result that some sites may not sees right or not be accessible at all through internet browser other than IE.

    So, who will win this race Internet Explorer or Firefox? If Firefox sustains getting market share as it has at current phase than future is bright for Firefox. But, if Internet Explorer comes out with the solutions for its security issues, it can hold onto its over 90 percent lions share in the browser market.

    Whatever, but the fact is that both browsers have had advantages along with security problems and loop-holes. So only the time will show the right answer, just wait and watch.

    One of the things that operations managers would loathe is downtime. A downtime in business can be defined as a situation wherein operations could not continue. One of the leading causes of business downtime is the failure of equipment, specifically computer equipment. For example, if your offices email servers would go down then interoffice communication would usually cease. Even simpler, printer malfunction could lead to downtime as you wait for the paper jams to clear up.

    Thus, businesses are often in the lookout for methods to be able to curb the downtime. A way that they would be able to do that is by contacting a Computer support firm. Computer support firms can help you solve this issue through a variety of ways such as:

    24/7 support:

    More often than not, breakdowns happen in times when people are not actively monitoring the situation. This would occur late into the shift and would often cause troubles the next day. If you have contacted a computer support firm to provide you with round the clock service, then you would not have to wait until the next day to detect or even fix the problems.
    They could easily monitor your systems even if your own staff is not actively checking or guarding them. This would lead to a quicker response time than having to do next day fixes, avoiding he lengthy down times that managers hate.

    Expert assessment:

    Another common cause for downtime is the assessment and investigation that occurs whenever an issue is found. Usually operation is stopped as the IT experts would have to do a thorough checking on how the problem came up.

    By contacting a computer support firm, you would be able to bank on their expert knowledge of handling the various computer systems. This means that investigation and assessment time is narrowed down as they would already have prior experience in solving various computer issues.
    The help of the computer support team streamlines the time needed to be able to provide a solution for your computer problems.

    Quick access to parts:

    Lastly, a computer support company would have a much wider network from which to access replacement parts and accessories for your busted equipment. Usually, in house purchasing would have to go to a single supplier and hope that they have the parts that are needed for the fixes.
    A computer support partner would have more options as they would usually have more connections.

    When all else fails, go play a game online. Sure, solitaire with a deck of cards is nice, but all those little things can promise you is a mountain of hearts and spades. On the other hand, if you try online gaming, you might gain some real heart in spades.

    Kristy Kuch met her boyfriend online. They were both playing Mafia Wars, a mobster game on Facebook. It was never intended as a way to meet someone to love, but then again, how many things are there that work exactly the way they’re designed?

    -I didn’t even really know what he looked like; we were just talking and talking and we got to know each other so well,- says Kristy. For her, love came in the guise of being in charge of a clan for a Facebook game. Other online daters find themselves on more -conventional- online dating sites, such as eHarmony or Christian Mingle, but online dating is flooding the love market–there were 54 million singles in the United States in 2012, and 40 million people (sadly, it’s possible that not all of them were single) have tried online dating. Together, Match.com and eHarmony.com have 35 million members, and Christian Mingle just hit its 10 million mark for niche sites. Other sites are gaining waves of popularity, such as Tinder, a sort of Hot or Not that matches people through a yes or no system. If you both say yes, your phones are connected so you can chat. One person says no, and there’s no connection. More men than women use online dating (Kurtz 2013) and one in three couples meets online. Compared to other online love stories, however, Kristy and her boyfriend Gary-they’ve been together three years-have a unique story. Yet it’s also one that’s becoming more mainstream because people are more open in general to finding love in the places they least expect it.

    There are more singles using dating sites than aren’t using them, but that doesn’t account for the number of people who meet while playing communicative RPG games such as Mafia Wars and even World of Warcraft. Members of the games can talk for hours without sharing any contact or physical information, so it’s possible that they might get to know one another better than if they had met in person on a blind date at a coffee shop. At least when you’re playing Mafia Wars you don’t have to worry if your eyeliner is smudged.

    Kurtz, T. Online dating looks like it could be “the love story of the future”. Retrieved on June 26, 2013 from wday.com/event/article/id/82221/.

    My Name is Eddie Z and I am the author of How to Buy a Trading Computer & Save Thousands. I have been trading the financial markets electronically for over 15 years, and during that time I have come to learn what technology online traders need, what works best and what does not. This is just one of many EZ Tips on How to Buy a Trading Computer. My goal in this series is to educate you, inform you, and hopefully save you over 1000 dollars on your next trading system.
    A Question I get asked all the time is: Should my Trading Computer be Over clocked? The short answer to this question is absolutely NOT! Overclocking is a process computer geeks and enthusiasts use to get more performance out of a computers processor and sometimes even other components. It involves setting the processor to operate at a faster rate than it was designed for by the manufacturer. The research I have done shows that the most important feature traders want out of a trading computer is dependability and reliability. The bottom line is that overclocking goes completely against this principal. Overclocking a processor generates so much extra heat that it has a much higher risk of becoming unstable ultimately failing. It reduces the components useful life and makes them completely unpredictable. And guess what, with these newer processors like the i7 from Intel, a human being would never, ever notice an increase in speed. Intel makes several speeds for the i7. If you want the fastest processor just get the i7 980 extreme edition. In the long run you will save money and aggravation and you will have a super dependable machine that operates the way it was designed. Some Trading Computer companies are out there, overclocking machines and charging an arm and leg to do it. This entirely defeats the purpose of having a trading computer, costs extra money, and again reduces the useful life. Lastly, try to find a local technician who will want to work on an overclocked machine if you did have an issue.
    If youve found this information helpful make sure to get my Free Guide AND Video Tips on How to Buy a Trading Computer and save thousands. The guide and videos are completely free and contain all the knowledge and information you need to get an awesome trading system for the lowest price possible and avoid being ripped off.

    Anyone who was born in the 80s or 90s does not matter where in the world, has played pacman all throughout his childhood. The game is so popular that even in times like today when we have the kind of technology that we do we still take out time to play the relatively ancestral game. Everything about pacman was so perfect that it became an instant classic when it was released in 1980. Although it took some time to come out of its shell, the pacman game became the largest grossing video game of all time.

    Majority of us remember playing pacman at video game arcades where there used to be those giant machines with the small screens and the cute knobs on them. The loud music from all those games creeping into your ears and the rivalries that took place to see who could beat the high score and stay up there for that longest are just few of the great memories we cherish from those arcades. Even the music of pacman was ever so popular. Every time pacman would move horizontally or vertically to eat those dots and flee from those ghosts you would twist and turn yourself to get yourself to the next level.

    Since video game parlors do not exist anymore. At least not in the same sense as we remember them to be, many website designers have opened up online websites for playing pacman on your computer. Everything from the graphics, to the characters to even the music is the same so that you can relive your favourite childhood game. It is even popular for the kids of this generation. Many of them give up on their PlayStation and X-Boxs to play pacman on their computer.

    The reason for pacmans success is very evident. It was the first maze game ever to be launched to the world. At the time only arcade and action games such as space shooters and space invaders ruled the scene. Pacman was even fun for girls, hence it appealed to a larger audience.
    Pacman game can be called as a landmark in gaming history. Not only is the most famous video game of all time, it is also somewhat of a heritage. It is because of games like these that we have ended up with the modern video games. Hence, pacman is indeed the most entertaining and fun game!

    It’s been just two years after the ‘output of the previous version, number 7, and house Microsoft aims to boost its browser to get back on track after slipping in recent years. >

    The browser war that is being fought, in fact, reaping more and more victims, and he fights with no holds barred. On the other hand, Internet Eplorer, although more abundantly in advantage over other contenders, but has lost much ground over the past two years, almost a 20% “share” that will certainly concerned about the Dear Uncle Bill.

    Behind it, Firefox has eaten point after point every day, and the other contenders Safari, Chrome and Opera recorded positive trends. Then look what’s new in the latest version of Internet Explorer.

    The GUI stands on the same lines of version 7, so no major upheavals.
    A small change concerns the role Web Slices, which is activated via a dedicated button, with which you can follow the real-time updates of a web page in order to highlight any changes.

    You see, however, that commitment has not been done on the purely aesthetic, but on something more substantial.

    In fact, improvements have been made on security and adjustments to prevent the typical crashes and freezes, for example, the ability to browse in private mode, in which all Sesson navigations occur without saving various histories, and cookies. Furthermore, the filter “Smart Screen”allows you to test the reliability and safety of a site. This function very similar to that provide to the best-known search engine, Google.

    On the front of the war on phishing, a technique used to steal money to unsuspecting sailors through the submission of false website pages or famous bank in order to steal information and especially your passwords, Internet Explorer has the ability to display the ‘url ‘s site in two different colors, thereby reflecting the real domain for details about which site we are actually sailing.

    Another peculiarity, which was presented as one of the major novelties of this version is that of so-called accelerators, that these shortcuts can be activated by clicking the right mouse button to quickly check information from sites like Wikipedia, Google Maps or phone numbers on white pages; operations that previously had to be carried out one by one with many windows or tabs open, and the classic copy and paste.

    However, we’ll see how the new version out soon be able to get back on top in Internet Explorer, and the signals, although positive in the first few days after its launch official approval, they are still below expectations. You just have to wait and see what the counter rivals.
