Ahoy there!

music-piracy.jpg

Yep, those bloody pirates have struck again! But the British police were right to save the day as they conducted a dawn raid in Cardiff, Welsh and arrested three people suspected of involvement in Internet-based music and film piracy rings. Two men (one of which is the ring leader) and a woman were said to be part of the biggest suppliers of pirated music and films in Britain, earning about 3,000 pounds (6,173 $) a month. Now I understand how these cyber thieves find the piracy business a lucrative one. Too bad it�s considered illegal and unethical. But piracy is not going to end unless people stop buying from them. Just some food for thought, folks.

Safety for the Kids on the Web (Part 2)

Looks can be deceiving they say. Talk to a person on a street, later on he/she is being paid to get information from you (possible, it can happen). Looking at a person can deceive, what more someone you are talking to that you can’t see? Since kids have been more into the internet than the wiser ones, their curiosity explores the wide world of the web: internet. When will they know when and what they are doing is bad for them? That is why we have the wise people, to help the kids and teach them and keep them out of trouble based on their experience.

It helps to keep things in your closet

Image Source: guardianhometechnologies.com

Maintaining a network of home computers can be quite a dilemma if you have not even the simplest and most basic tools in trouble shooting your network. There will come a time when you’ll be needing some items to assist you in quickly reparing your pc and internet connection. You can just simply provide a small shelf in your closet. If you just dont have that space, maybe look for a small shelf, if for an unfortunate reason you dont have a shelf, look for a drawer. A complete loser you can be if you dont have a drawer to spare. In that case go find yourself a card board box. Make it nice and put some label in it so you can easily find it when you suddenly look for it. A basic computer toolkit maust have a Phillips screwdriver, a wire cutter, wire stripper and cable crimping tool that will work for your cable types. You also must have a network cable in hand. SO the next time you buy a cable, buy twice as much so you can keep a spare supply. Because somewhere in time you will need them.

Compliance and Oracle’s Identity Manager

oracle.jpg

Oracle recently released its latest version of its software, Identity Manager. For those who are new to this, it’s a user provisioning and administration software application that enables companies to update, upgrade, and add or remove user accounts from other applications and directories. Oracle states that the latest version of Identity Manager improves compliance since it provides “granular” reports which identified which users has access to specific data and other pertinent and sensitive information – which has always been a challenge for companies who wish to meet “regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, FFIEC and PCI.”

All you have to do is log in to the internet, go to Multiply, visit a site that sells items, inquire about it, reserve it, pay for it, then have it delivered at your house in a 2-3 days. Oh yes you read it right, go to Multiply. Multiply is a social-network site just like MySpace and Facebook. You add your friends, make a blog, post pictures, put graphics, music, etc.

Installing SataHardisk


Image source: www.egs-howto.com
The Intel 82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH7M) driver seems to be the one you’re looking for.  You desire to put that on a CD or floppy and when you start installing xp the blue screen with white text appears on the far end “Press F6 if you need to install a SCSI or RAID driver….” press F6 and put in your disk with the sata driver. I found plenty of sites with the driver download by just googling “Intel 82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH7M)”.

People with notebooks usually don’t have a USB Floppy to install SATA drivers from, so you will also have to use nLite to merge them with install CD, or search in BIOS Setup for an entry like “SATA Native mode” and set it to disabled – that will allocate legacy software to detect your HDD as a normal PATA drive.

You have to install the SATA driver earlier than turning the native support off.

Wonder if you could get a “.com” or a “.org” of your own? There are millions of websites offering domain hostings for a small fee (as low as $5.00 per month more or less) and these web services offer an assortment of perks and privileges included in their packages like free email hosting (if your website is www.domain.com, you could have you@domain.com as your email), large hosting space, free site promotion and the like. Example of these websites are BlueHost, Host Monster and Omnis.

However, if you wish to have a FREE domain, then worry not. You can avail of some of the free domain hosting websites such as Bravenet. It should be noted though that their services are limited (or incomparable to those paid domain sites) but then, best things in life are free, right?

Internet Addicts

There are a growing number of internet addicts in the world. Majority of these addicts are young children – teenagers. In South Korea, studies show that at least 680,000 children ages 10-19 are addicted to the internet. Two-thirds of this number own a smart phone and can access the internet anywhere they go. The South Korean government has now addressed this important issue and is now encouraging these children to undergo a horse-riding therapy. The harsh truth is, a person addicted to the internet (or addicted to anything, for that matter) will eventually have behavioural disorder. The time spent in front of the computer is also the time spent not interacting with another human being and it is essential for children at that age to be able to interact with people to develop communication skills. The Government has also now enforced the “Shutdown Law” which blocks online gamers from playing anything between midnight to 6 in the morning. This has limited success but more actions would be done in the future.

Unleashed: Mozilla Firefox 3

firefox

Aside from Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, Netscape Navigator and other World Wide Web browsers, Mozilla Firefox ranks second as the web browser with most market shares (next to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer).

Compared to Internet Explorer, some people prefer Mozilla Firefox since it has a better capability to block pop-up windows and the user has the freedom to install a wide variety of plug-ins and skins to customize the “feel” of their browsers.

The down-side of this is that the version 2 (and its series) of Firefox uses a lot of memory (100,000k for 5 tabs opened). Now Firefox has a solution to this problem: the all new Mozilla Firefox 3. The creator of the said browser claims that it uses lesser memory, provides more security and is more stable than the rest of the browsers available online.
