If you have ever experienced your computer malfunctioning or crashing and you need help then you understand just how confusing and frustrating this experience can be. You maybe sitting there one minute about to download the latest song or send your friend a email when all of a sudden your computer begins functioning weird. Now functions like getting on the internet or opening a word document take more than a minute to execute. This occurs usually because of two different scenarios either your computer has been internally damaged thanks to malware or it has been externally damaged thanks to a electrical surge or a spill.

computer-problemsIn cases of an internal issue such as malware these usually occur when a virus has either been uploaded to the computer from another electronic device or has been downloaded from the internet via a unsecured website. External issues such as dropping the computer tower and spilling a liquid on it can cause just as much damage to hardware of a computer as an internal issue. Regardless of the reason it is important to have some back up solutions just in case you experience a complete loss of power. A flash drive is a great cheap data recovery solution that can help you back up most of your computer’s information. You could literally take all the information off of one computer and place it on another one without risking any infections on the new computer. You might also consider an outside hard drive expert.

What Causes Hard Drive Crashes?

System failure is one of the worst experiences a computer user can have especially if a back up system or tools are not in place. In most cases a severe malfunction in your computer is the result of some sort of damaged done to the hard drive. Your hard drive is responsible for helping your computers save documents and files. Your hard drive also keeps files that are responsible for keeping your computer’s system in order, so once your hard drive has been compromised it is a very clear indication that your computer is likely to fail. Viruses, Trojans and spy-ware all can affect the internal components of your computer making simple process like starting up your computer a nightmare.

External issues include power surges and spills that can cause your computer to short out. It’s important to buy tools that can help you back up your computer system and important files. An external hard drive as well as flash drive are great data recovery solutions that can help you recover your information. There are plenty of different threats that your computer encounters every day. With the right materials you can back up all the information on your computer.

Although the domain name can be tempting, one should not neglect the importance of SEO, which means the content should always be unique and attractive. When choosing suffixes, the .com, .net and .org can be perfect choices if the target audience is from all around the world. In case one wants to concentrate on audience in one country only, the suffix of that country should be used. The process of learning how to start a blog may be long but it is definitely worth the time invested. Get a good head start with this blog.

How To Choose The Right Blogging Platform?

Choosing blogging software means one needs to go through various features and see which one is suitable for a particular purpose. People usually think that finding out how to start a blog solves it all but it takes some time to spot the right platform.

It is not always a good idea to listen to hosting provider because it may end up with something with no necessary features and benefits. The most popular blogging software usually includes WordPress, Blogger and Joomla, but one needs to figure out if they are versatile enough for a particular purpose. In most cases, the software can help people know about some blogs, but if it is advanced enough, it can also be a great choice for static websites. When it comes to blogs, the audience always wants to see something new, which means the theme matters more than anything else. Best software offers various themes, and there are paid, as well as free versions. On the other hand, there may be the software that lets the user create his own theme, if he knows the job. Learning how to avoid some mistakes may be the first step towards getting details on how to start a blog, and if there is a particular tool that can help with that, one should try it out.

Hewlett Packard’s AutoRAID technology greatly improved the stability and security of early RAID systems – without sacrificing performance, and is the model around which most RAID setups are designed around today.

It was a key step in the mass adoption of RAID technologies throughout the small business arena.

Those who have seen the product feel it is a noteworthy improvement over existing RAID systems. “It’s a very significant announcement for the entire industry,” said Tom Lahive, senior analyst at International Data Corp. (IDC; Framingham, Mass.). “The beauty of it is that most other vendors are just starting to integrate some type of software management. What HP has done is make a controller that has more intelligent features than most others. It really, truly is automatic RAID.”

A key technique of AutoRAID is dynamic data migration, which enables the system to use different RAID levels to provide quicker data accessing or lower-cost storage. Data being actively used is moved to RAID 0 or 1 level, in much the same way that common disk drives move active data to cache memory. Constantly moving data within the array balances overall performance and cost, HP said.

Dynamic algorithims

“With current systems, you have to select two of the three parameters people want with RAID: low cost, high performance and high availability,” said Roger Buckthal, project manager at HP’s Storage Systems Division. “The underlying innovation is a new way of addressing. Our mapping technique maps the host address to the disk address in a dynamic way. The dynamic algorithm is the key for us to change the active data to levels 0 or 1 to provide performance and put less active data in level 5, which is more cost effective.”

Buckthal noted that although HP is providing details about the different RAID levels, users no longer have to master the fine points of which level is best for different requirements because AutoRAID constantly moves data around automatically.

“We’re trying to get away from talking about the levels,” said Joe Molina, chairman of the RAID Advisory Board (St. Peter, Minn.), a trade association. “Users spend a lot of time worrying about those levels when they should really be thinking about performance, price and reliability.”

The HP system also permits on-line expansion. When drives are added, the management software reconfigures the system to take advantage of the additional capacity. Both active data and parity data used for on the new drive. This technique can also be used to replace failed drives.

“Another thing that’s different about this system is that when you add drives, disk capacity is not important,” Buckthal said. “We treat the disks not as complete disk drives but as blocks of storage. All the drives together are like a large pool of storage.”

He noted that this technique also makes it possible to use some of the capacity of a so-called hot spare for active data. Traditionally, a hot spare is kept powered up, holding mainly parity data. When a drive fails, the hot spare is called into play.

The HP technique uses some of the capacity of the drive, but distributes most of the spare capacity across all the disk drives in the array. That capacity is kept empty, so that space will be available when a drive fails. Spreading the data around helps improve performance, Buckthal said.

Treating disks as blocks of data also eliminates the tricky problem of spindle synching, which has been necessary to make sure that data comes off the individual disks at the same time. This is a common RAID issue. It also lets HP intermix drives that have different spin rates, which makes it simpler to upgrade systems as technology advances or budgets are fattened. Drives provide identification information so the controller knows what capacity and performance traits each drive has.

If there is one issue with the AutoRAID format, it’s that the drives do have the tendency to fail.

“The AutoRAID setup is very progressive, and does have some protections against RAID array failure,” says Len Travers, data recovery technician with Irvine, CA’s Hard Drive Recovery Associates. “Recovering these arrays, on the other hand, can be a major chore. The disk setup is far less recoverable than your regular RAID 5 machine.”

AutoRAID is part of a major focus by the Storage System Division to broaden its presence in the open market. The bulk of HP’s RAID business is currently add-on storage for HP UX systems. About 18 months ago, the company broadened its thrust by providing PC LAN connectivity and other links. While some of the aspects gbeing adopted by HP are used in the supercomputer market, HP is the first to bring these capabilities to the mid-range market.

“No one else is doing anything like this, especially at this price-per-Mbyte level,” said IDC’s Lahive. “The whole array market is growing at 30 percent per year, but it’s still in its infancy. In 1993-94, vendors started offering RAID for open systems. Beginning in 1995, vendors are seeing the viability of integrating more easily managed software.” As a result, said Lahive, “We’re starting to see a lot of teaming with software vendors so RAID products are more manageable for different environments.”

The plummeting per-Mbyte price of disk drives, falling at 35 percent a year, means the Tbyte levels of RAID systems will grow at twice the dollar value of the market, according to Lahive.

Talking Brain Injuries Head On http://www.frederickarts.org/talking-brain-injuries-head-on/ http://www.frederickarts.org/talking-brain-injuries-head-on/#comments Thu, 31 Dec 2015 13:35:15 +0000 http://www.levintel.com/?p=16

As survivors of severe brain injuries, even highly educated and successful people have to relearn simple tasks that help them get on with their lives.

The Institute for Cognitive Prosthetics, in Bala Cynwyd, Pa., uses custom computer programs to help head injury patients overcome very specific problems, such as prioritizing items on a list, remembering when to do certain things, and concentrating on the task at hand.

headhurtsWhen Institute Director Elliott Cole saw patients struggling to organize their schedules using notebooks at a brain-injury center a decade ago, he saw the potential for computers and custom software to go way beyond the notebooks.

Like prosthetic arms and legs, these programs must be custom-fit. Because the cognitive process is so complicated, however, each patient needs to be present when a program is being built.

“Our computing environment is designed around the premise that 5 percent of our work is initial design and 95 percent is modification and enhancement of applications — our patients’ requirements are constantly changing,” said Cole, who built the first custom application in the early 1990s and has worked with 18 patients since.

“Because we work on one-of-a-kind systems, our computing environment must give us the ability to quickly modify our code,” he said. The institute uses the Clipper database application-development language, from Computer Associates International Inc., and 486-based PCs to rapidly build and modify applications.

Clipper has several advantages for the institute. “Our primary need is for a versatile programming language,” said Cole. Clipper generates about one-third the lines of C code, he said, making the source code easier to read and debug.

The institute works with patients who have stopped improving using traditional therapy, Cole said. When a new patient like recent injury victim Susana Aguilera comes in, Cole analyzes the activities that person wants to perform. “We study the way the individual performs the task, noting those subtasks that the individual can perform easily and those the individual can’t perform. When we find something the individual can’t do, we build a technology bridge over it,” he said.

The institute builds custom spreadsheets, word processors, schedulers, and other personal-productivity tools for patients who use desktop or notebook PCs. The newfound ability to use these tools often opens up a development bottleneck, enabling further productivity.

“For someone with a brain injury, the person is much less flexible, so the technology has to be able to adapt to the user,” Cole said. Many patients with cognitive problems need more structure, making software that presents multiple options difficult to deal with.

Clipper’s prototyping ability is essential for a growing number of applications — including those that enable people with physical and cognitive disabilities to use computers, said Ken Orr, president of Ken Orr Institute, in Topeka, Kan. “Fast programming allows developers to work around what people can’t do — you can’t model behavior, you have to see it. Clipper’s a super tool for that,” Orr said.

The institute’s development technique helped a woman who survived a devastating automobile accident assist in designing an application that helps her prioritize tasks.

Before the accident, the patient, who has a graduate education, could usually tell in what order to perform a list of tasks to complete them in a brief period of time.

“After her accident, if you gave her a short list, she couldn’t prioritize it,” Cole said. Yet she could prioritize tasks one at a time. The custom software allowed her to assign a priority to an item, then repaint the screen.

The patient herself came up with this solution, Cole said. “We sat down to design, and after 15 minutes she said, in essence, `Move out of the way, I have a set of ideas.’ And over the next half hour or so we banged out something that really would work for her.”

Moving On From Backup Tape Not Only Necessary, But Critical http://www.frederickarts.org/moving-on-from-backup-tape-not-only-necessary-but-critical/ http://www.frederickarts.org/moving-on-from-backup-tape-not-only-necessary-but-critical/#respond Sun, 27 Dec 2015 09:10:03 +0000 http://www.frederickarts.org/?p=118 The numbers are dizzying.

The numbers are dizzying. Ten million customers being serviced by 49,000 employees in 1,400 branch offices in more than 30 countries.

All amassing data faster than dot-coms are crashing on the stock market. This is what Dan Ledgerwood had to contend with.

No one might have been happier than Ledgerwood, senior storage management analyst at the Royal Bank of Canada in Toronto, to have gained an hour when the clocks went back. For more than a year, he has been trying to solve the bank’s host tape issues. And the clock is ticking.

There is nothing unique behind the reasons for the move to a virtual tape solution. Ledgerwood says the existing technology is simply getting old. The Memorex ATL tape libraries, he says, are circa. 1990 and were wearing out and becoming difficult to maintain.

In the case of the outgoing, two-year-old IBM Magstar hardware, he says reliability proved to be disappointing.

If the reasons for the change weren’t surprising, the same can be said of what Ledgerwood was looking for. He says he wanted a solution which would address the bank’s current needs, as well as accommodate any future consolidations or mergers.

Last fall, Ledgerwood began the process of installing a virtual tape solution at Royal’s data centres in Guelph, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

The operation was shut down until March thanks to the Y2K freeze. Eight months later, a deadline looms.

“We have one out of the four centres where the technology has to be removed in November and the other three centres are in January,” Ledgerwood says.

StorageTek’s Virtual Storage Manager and 9310 Powderhorns (automated cartridge system) will replace Memorex ATL while the 9840 tape drive will fill the gap left by the departing IBM equipment.

Of the choice to go with virtual tape, Ledgerwood says: “There is not much else out there in order to do this. Your alternative is to put it onto disk and allow HSM (hierarchical storage management) to control it. We’re at our capacity with HSM.

“In a month we are looking at application tape mounts — that’s non-HSM, we use HSM ABARS (aggregate backup and recovery system) to do our recovery processing backup and that’s totally separate — so this is just regular application backup. ABARS we are looking at about 3,600 GB in Guelph, 13,000 GB in Toronto, 9,000 GB in Montreal and 10,000 GB in Vancouver.”

But is storing 35,600 GB a month on disc more expensive than virtual tape?

“I would say it is because when you take into account the MIPS (million instructions per second) that you have to purchase in order to do the HSM processing in order to manage that tape,” Ledgerwood says.

Royal adopted a three-phase approach to the migration. Ledgerwood says the first phase is to implement silos in the virtual tape solution plus two phases to replace the Magstar technology.

This kind of project is not without challenges. “We are running multiple vendors and each vendor has their own ability to alter allocation and that has been a struggle for us,” he says.

“It’s an individual issue that people have to deal with and they have to understand their environment and that is one of the reasons that I believe it has taken us longer than lets says and existing StorageTek customer to implement the virtual tape solution.

“We had to step back because we tried to roll a lot quicker and ran into allocation issues,” Ledgerwood says. “Other customers would (experience it) if they were trying to do this.”

Using snoring pillows is encouraged by medical people, as they have no negative side effects. It also requires no prescription which is also huge. Unlike medicine which has a prescription to be adhered to fully, the only hustle with the pillow is that its case has to be kept clean and the pillow size has to be maintained. This makes it an ideal option for many, including children. The sturdy yet soft nature of the pillow allows one to experience true, deep, rest, giving one a restive night. Meaning that all the people around you will sleep without the noise, you too will feel no guilt at having to keep people awake with your offensive noise.

Alternatives For The Snoring Pillow

Of course, snoring pillows are easy to use as they offer the right posture to a snorer thereby reducing the noise from throat blockage. At the same time, getting the right snoring mouthpiece such as those reviewed at this site can help stop your snoring immediately. They are perfect for those who prefer to sleep on their side because a pillow doesn’t work on your side. If that is the cause of snoring, it could be controlled by developing the habit of sleeping sideways. Habits are never born, they are developed. The earlier a snorer sleeps on their sides, the better.

However, there have been cases where sideways sleeping still does not help. This calls for other snoring solutions, not necessarily snoring pillows. One available methods of controlling snoring is using anti chin straps. When they are used, they hold up the chin while one is asleep. The sling goes round the head while the other end holds the jaw into position to stop the mouth from opening during sleep. Then there is the mouth piece which is inserted into the mouth to hold the tongue into position as people sleep. When the tongue is retained into the right position, the airwaves are left open to allow easy flow of air in and out of the lungs.

The Tear Drop http://www.frederickarts.org/the-tear-drop/ http://www.frederickarts.org/the-tear-drop/#respond Tue, 15 Dec 2015 19:22:41 +0000 http://www.levintel.com/?p=11

Why do humans cry? In a sense the answer is easy. We cry because of a child’s accomplishments. Because of a friend’s death. Because of a news story. Because of a piece of music. We cry in joy, grief, anguish, sorrow, frustration. Yet the real question is not why we cry, but rather what purpose our tears serve.

One of the earliest scientific theories concerning the purpose of tears was offered by Charles Darwin, who believed that tears were merely the result of an accidental stimulation of the lacrimal (ortear-producing) glands that took place when the muscles around the eyes contracted during periods of strong emotion. Since then, other theories have been proposed, including the notion that tears are a form of communication (serving to attract attention and elict support) and that tears, which contain anti-bacterial properties and which drain into the nose when they don’t simply evaporate or roll down the cheeks, help protect the upper respiratory tract from infection.
