It also contains information necessary for booting. In addition, it stores data related to system settings, file associations, and installed applications. It is a binary data tree that is organized into different structures, such as “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_USERS, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKEY_DYN_DATA, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, and HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG.”

However, your Windows registry can become congested with unnecessary or obsolete entries over time. The more you upgrade, delete, or install applications and components, the more clogged your Windows registry can become. When this happens, your computer can be slower and have an erratic system performance. If you want your computer to have an improved performance, you should learn how to optimize Windows registry.

How can you know when you need to optimize or clean your Windows registry? Well, here are some of the signs you need to watch out for:

  • Your computer is still new yet it is slow and its performance is not satisfactory, considering its specs.
  • Your computer has a very slow start up.
  • Your computer frequently freezes.
  • Your computer crashes all of a sudden.
  • You often see error messages on your screen.
  • Your applications usually freeze or do not open immediately.

Different types of li-ion batteries make use of different types of cathodes. The cathodes are made of lithium molecules. Generally, the anodes are made of carbon. As with other types of batteries, the chemical reaction that happen between the cathode, anode and the electrolyte generate electric current. Aside from this, the stuff used for these will affect the cost, capacity, performance and the safety of a certain type of battery.

Li-ion batteries, for instance, that feature a lithium cobalt oxide cathode can give you a bit higher capacity. However, they are more reactive because of the lower thermal capacities. Another great option is the lithium iron phosphate. Their life cycle is 4-5 times longer. Moreover, their power density is around 10 times better.

These batteries are of various classes, but they are commonly used in portable or consumer devices like smartphones and laptops. Aside from this, this type of battery is also popular for use in aerospace, military and other electric automobiles.

Given below are some pros and cons of lithium ion batteries.

  • Lighter and smaller: These batteries are lightweight but offer higher capacity than other types of products out there. Therefore, it is

Remote Desktop

Initially known as terminal services, the remote desktop is a Microsoft service that allows users to have a virtual session by accessing files and applications through a server. The experience of using remote services is more or less like using a local desktop; the only difference is that the session is processed on a server not the desktop.

Remote desktops are relatively simpler as little infrastructure requirements are needed to be met; thereby reducing implementation costs. Moreover, it helps in enhancing remote worker’s efficiency because it is most suitable for remote workers, contractors and corporate workers working from a remote location.

However, the biggest drawback of a remote desktop is that it has compatibility issues. Since it has a terminal environment, many applications fail to work. Nonetheless, improvements have been made over the years and many applications have started working, but still some applications do not work till date.

Virtual Desktop

Also known as VDI, the virtual desktops are basically interfaces that run on a virtual environment and not on a local desktop. However, the virtual desktop environment and infrastructure tends to be more convoluted than the remote desktop. The administrators

bookmark_borderEfficient Personalised Variable Data Printing

Digital printers already have the equipment needed to produce VDP campaigns, so there’s no great expenditure required to begin offering VDP to their clients; all that they need to understand is the software requirements and the workflow.

From the hardware perspective, a variable data print set-up looks like a lot like any other digital printing installation, with a digital press, a RIP or digital front-end (DFE) to drive it and whatever inline or offline finishing equipment is needed to turn printed sheets into sellable product. The differences from normal static print are mostly at the file creation and pre-press stages: the two main software components are the database and the authoring software, though VDP also puts some extra demands on the RIP or DFE.

As discussed elsewhere in this series, the printer doesn’t necessarily have to own a database application, as long as the data needed for the personalisation can be extracted and supplied in CSV or Excel formats to use with the master template in the authoring application.

VDP authoring applications come in a variety of types. Some, like PTI FusionPro (recently acquired by Ricoh), are plug-ins to popular professional design and layout tools

Programming and Writing in General

My first training in computer programming languages came from Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Everywhere I looked, I could identify things that reminded me of my training there. Because I’ve been doing a lot of fiction writing, I’ve noticed that even symbols like ellipses remind me of computer programming.

There was a time when I saw data as products on a conveyor belt. Because the products looked round and white, they reminded me of ellipses in the English language. Catching up to date, currently in fiction I’ve been writing about robotic technology.

This part of my fiction-writing is still under wraps but I’m sharing it here to make a point about pointers. Melting rock formations is the basis for what will fuel robots in my science fiction stories. After these rock and stone formations have melted down, they are re-formed into swirly mini balls that look like marbles. They melt as they course through what one might call a ‘pin ball machine’ system of a typical robot.

In programming, these marbles will represent data and when product after product or data after data are flowing through, in one direction, in order

The modern world is a kaleidoscope of electronic gadgets and systems that make possible things we only dreamed about as kids. Thanks to our electronic world, you can buy a house from your cellphone, see what the night sky looks like in real time on the other side of the world, or profit from nanosecond differences in trading times in the stock market. All before you get out of bed.

Just like my “modern” guitar friends, many people seem to take it for granted that the digital systems that underlie these miracles – the Internet, for example – are eternal. So when I hear someone make plans that assume uninterrupted connectivity, I think to myself: “What if the power goes off?”

Which brings me to one of the most frightening ideas I’ve come across in a while.

A U.S. tech giant is reportedly working on a software platform based on the infamous digital currency “Bitcoin.” The idea is to make it possible for major currencies like the dollar or euro to operate like Bitcoins. Anyone could transact with anyone else in the world directly, bypassing banks completely. Just log on, send your money and you’re

The impact of music in my life is so high that I decided to learn it at the age of thirty-three. Though, a bit late, but still not late enough to nourish my hunger for knowledge in the concerned field.

As far as my childhood memories are concerned, I still remember that I always enjoyed music in every form. Whether a lullaby, a devotional song, a hymn, folk song or a movie mix, I always cherished every form of music and always tried to explore more of it to enjoy it from my heart.

Benefits of music

  • It boost the mood of a person and helps to stay happier from within. Music can keep a check on your mood swings. If you are feeling irritated or low, just listen to a happy and lively song, and you will start feeling the difference soon. In fact, researches have proven that it has the capability of providing a same degree of happiness to people that can be derived from eating chocolates or having sex.
  • Studies have proven that music has a considerable impact on child’s brain and helps in brain development in a positive way. That is the reason music

bookmark_borderHow To Make Optic Cable

To make the cables you need to have the necessary raw materials. For example, you need to have plastic or glass. You also need to have the cable making machine. To make the cable you should start by heating your raw materials (glass or plastic) at ultra high temperatures and then draw fibers at very high speeds (66 feet per second).

When drawing out the fibers you should monitor them using mirometer. This is to ensure that the diameter is uniform from the start to finish.

For the fibers to transmit data over long distances you need to ensure that they are highly reflective. You can easily do this by creating a mirror effect within the fiber. You do this by passing the fibers through ultraviolet ovens and coating cups.

Once you have your reflective fiber with you, you should subject it to a number of tests to ensure that it’s in perfect condition. Some of the tests that you should subject it to include:¬†refractive index profile, tensile strength, bandwidth, fiber geometry, attenuation, temperature dependence, operating temperature,¬†and¬†ability to conduct light underwater.

It’s only after the fibers have passed these tests should you package ensemble

Device Settings

All those who have installed a cloud app like iCloud, Dropbox and Google+ need to understand that their pictures get uploaded automatically. It is an alarming concern for which you need to be careful while you are busy clicking and saving pictures. You also need to understand that when you delete a picture from your device then don’t assume that it is erased from cloud as well. It is just a scratch on the surface of stuff. If you want to remove it from there then you need to login to your Cloud account and get rid of it from there manually.

Data Encryption

Data encryption goes a long way when it comes to data privacy and security. All your files get saved locally but when you share them then you require encryption. There are numerous ways to encrypt a file; given here are three most popular data encryption methods.

Using 7-Zip

The most popular medium of encryption is 7-Zip that helps encrypt files that are in an archive. A passphrase is used to protect archived items. If you are using Windows 7, then you can download it easily. After downloading

Scheduled System Backups

Maintaining a routine monthly schedule of successful data back ups is critical to every organization. If systems become out of sync, fail to back up correctly, or at all, it can pose as a liability to your organization. Backups are vital for making sure your system and network remains stable and secure from outside attack.

Accelerate Your Network

If your organization uses a wide area file system with multiple users contributing to documents, it can be difficult to figure out which version of a document is the most current. A network accelerator is a type of time server that keeps the time synchronized between multiple devices and users so that multiple people can collaborate on a project, even in real time.

Network Management

Should something go wrong with your network, the first place to turn to find out what went wrong is the system log. This log is a key piece of troubleshooting and diagnosing problems. However, if these logs are not synchronized, it can take much longer to find the problem and repair system functioning and performance.
