      By cooldude | October 22, 2014

      Clean Flat Screen TVCleaning of flat screen television requires precision. With the incoming of LCD television it has become utmost important to pay attention while cleaning. Since the LCD televisions are narrow and dust gets accumulated in the panels and rims the area becomes sensitive which needs to be cleaned thoroughly. Though the coating of snit- glare is applied on the plasma television yet cleaning is essential and brisk cleaning that has a different course to follow. Easy and safe step is what has to be taken to maintain the televisions.

      Easy cleaning solution – to clean flat tv initially the television has to be switched off since it is the dark colour which enables proper cleaning. Areas which are greased with oil or have specks of dust can be rubbed easily. It is gentle cleaning with which you can swap the screen and the cloth that needs to be used is microfiber and common tip is to erase it with the eraser which is dry.

      The cloth which helps in cleaning has to be taken care of – the cloth should not be rubbed off against the surface and it should be pat dry. Pixels get destroyed if the cloth is not smooth so opting for a smooth cloth is important. It is distilled water mixed with vinegar in proportion in which the cloth should be dipped and then dried. Vinegar has to be white.

      Layers of products that are to be used - spray bottles that are available in the market for flat screens are effective but not as effective as the solution of white vinegar and water concoction. The plastic that surrounds the television has to be cleaned separately.

      Products that need to be avoided – tissue paper and toilet paper should not be used on the screen. The products which are not soft should be avoided at all cost. Nail polish remover should also not be used to clean the surface. Spray should not be applied directly on the screen of the television as it destroys the pixels of the television.

      Apart from the usage you also have to check whether the screen is glossy or matte. When applying the spray on the cloth and then wiping it on the television it has to be taken note of that finger tips should also be cleaned while wiping the surface of the television. Intense cleaning is not required usually and soft cleaning makes it good. The screens today come with the paper coated on them hence there is no need to worry about the screen. Sharp objects are to be avoided at all costs. If by wiping the screen with a dry cloth the grime does not come off you have to move on to the next step which is to dry it by using a damp cloth mix with the solution. Dusting the surface with brush is essential on a day to day basis so as to maintain the longevity of the screen. Do not exert yourself while cleaning the screen.

      What Type Of Server Is Required For Your Site

      By cooldude | August 23, 2014

      web serverWeb server is the server which sits on the sites of your web of the computer. The server is throughout connected to the internet. There is a unique address which is given to the web server which ranges from number 0 to 255. For site hosting specifying the IP address is important.

      Most widespread type of server is the Apache server which has a source that is open software and the best part is that it is installed on any operating system. From Microsoft the Internet Information Server is of high performance which is integrated tightly. Lighttpd is a web server which is free is secure, quick and uses less power. For large and medium websites the web server from Sun Microsystems is best suited. Another free and open server is the Jigsaw Server.

      The challenge is of choosing the best server-there are two options dedicated server or private server. It is basically the companies who are in search of a web server. Large companies which are dedicated to the department of IT should have the server on site. Companies which are small on the other hand should get their needs of IT outsource by which they can rent a space of the server from the company of web hosting. It is prerogative to know about the web server. The division of web servers is done so that multiple users can share it and it can support a single or multiple websites.

      Renting of the web servers take place in various ways like shared hosting. VPS is a variant of shared hosting. There are features which are shared by the dedicated hosting too. It has another name too which is called VDS. Files of single client rest in the dedicated hosting. There are many packages available in the dedicated servers. Comparisons of the two kinds of servers are as follows:-

      VPS vs. Dedicated Servers - There is partition which is separate in the VPS. The unlimited space which the VPS boast of is not actually true. The limited space which is allotted to the server is good in a way as it does not misuse the space. According to the needs of your adaptability VPS has its function set aside. Bandwidth is also set aside for the single user. Dedicated server on the other hand is solely yours. The sites which you can set up depends on you be it small or large. Bandwidth and space both can be resold. In terms of pricing the Dedicated Servers are expensive in comparison to VPS. Web Host can manage the dedicated servers. IP address is dedicated to you in VPS. The selection is limited to VPS in comparison to dedicated servers. The number and type of processor is limited in VPS.

      For the appropriate solution it is the variables which matter. Dedicated server incurs huge investment. In various sizes the servers are available so you have to choose the best. Configurations are also different and vary from one type of server to another.

      What is RFID technology?

      By cooldude | February 10, 2014

      RFID technologyThis technology identifies and adds tags to the people or objects it is attached to. It stands for Radio Frequency Identification and is wireless and uses non contact forms of identification through scientific electromagnetic fields. These tags are a powerhouse for information and emit some high frequency waves like micro waves which can be read in that electromagnetic field that it creates in the small radius. However there are other forms of reading and identification, for example the RDIF chips which operate on battery can operate even from a distance of 100 metres.

      Advantages of this technology:

      This is a revolutionary form of bringing change to way of tracking in several companies. There are a lot of people who benefit from this technology. Not only the one who produces it but also the military and navy, consulting firms, retailers and suppliers and the farmers with their animals. Tracking a carton or packet or a pallet or anything else with a RFID tag on it is anytime much better than a bar code because direct contact is unnecessary and being face to face is also not required. The RDIF technology helps in reducing the supply chain of the company reducing labor costs in turn, the time it takes to check and recheck and to keep an eye on human error.

      To meet the new military standards the defense has created a new form of RDIF military compliance solution. It is understood that this was done to help the manufacturers and suppliers to meet the new military standards.

      The systems of toll roads where motorists are billed requires a higher range and bill boards or barcodes don’t work here, this is where the RDIF technology comes to the rescue!

      Since this technology has been there for over 50 years every company is adapting to it.
