Short-Range Wireless Communications

Wireless communications is perhaps best known by its "long-range" applications, such as cellular and satellite communications. Perhaps the greatest growth ahead for wireless markets, however, lies in "short-range" applications, such as in RF identification (RFID), wireless local-area networks (WLANs), and Bluetooth personal wireless connectivity. Short-range Wireless Communication is an excellent introduction to some of these short-range wireless technologies, especially for engineering managers and marketing professionals who may not be well-versed in the terminology and technology of wireless communications.

What is a core.dmp in UNIX?

  • While I'm not familiar with any Unix OS that creates files named core.dmp (Unix systems do not typically use 3 letter suffixes), I can speak to the file commonly called just "core". This file gets created when an application performs an illegal activity, such as referencing an address outside its address space or dividing by zero. Illegal activities result in a synchronous signal being sent to the offending process. Unless handled, the typical result is for an image of the process to be saved to the file called "core". Tools such as "gdb" or "adb" can be used to examine the core file in order to determine what the process was doing that caused it to receive the signal. However, unless the process was compiled with debug information (e.g., -g) and linked with symbols intact, there's precious little that can be deduced. If the process has no symbols nor debug information, the simplest thing to do is to use the "file" command: file core in order to view an abbreviated description (name of the process and the signal that terminated the process).
  • CORE DUMP are images of application failure messages during there execution in LINUX/UNIX they give little clue about what happened to that particular application while run. Cause of application failure may be anything e.g. memory violation, not enough memory or anything that makes an application to stop run. For further refrences please refer to the System Administration Handbook on LINUX that comes from different writers but one that I have read is by Nemeith .

It's very straight forward, you get to follow along and recreate these logos and in the end, you're amazed at how great they look. The valuable part though is the confidence you gain in learning how a professional actually designs logos. I had to design a logo for a school play and everything I came up with looked bad. I did a search on google to find logo tutorials and I came across Gary's page. At first I was hesitant because it cost some $$ but there is nothing else out there that was free and could help me. So I paid up and it was not a regret! I never learned that much from a single tutorial, very worth the $. By the way, here's the logo I designed for the play...

Is a DVD Driver the same thing as a DVD Decoder?

A dvd decoder is a software program. Even if you have a dvd rom you still need a decoder. Your operating system weather it be windows or linux or mac or whatever may have a built in dvd software decoder depending on the version and any updates you may have. With out the decoder program your OS cannot reconize the file format for a dvd. The decoder program is the link between the OS and the DVD ROM drive. IF you bought a new dvd drive it should have came with a decoder on a CD.

A DVD driver is also a program that enables communication between your PC & DVD Player/Burner. While the Decoder program enables your PC to recognize the files on your DVD.

Why your Computer Shutdown only 20 minutes after you Start it?

  • Your power supply is probably going bad. It gets hot and then shuts down. It might also be a bad power supply fan, that is the power supply might not be getting hot because of a problem with the power supply but because the fan isn't coolingit properly.

  • Another common cause for shutdowns is the CPU overheating. Check the fan to make sure it isn't spinning slow or seized, and that there is no dust in the heatsink. You can also check that the heatsink compound (the paste between the fan and heatsink) hasn't broken down.

Hardware Bible (6th Edition)

The Winn L. Rosch Hardware Bible is a handy guide to the components that make up IBM-standard personal computers, but it is beginning to show its age in its new fifth edition. As Rosch's fans have come to expect, the book includes lots of lists and tables that present troubleshooting information in an easily referenced format. Rosch knows his subject well. Unlike many of its competitors, this book devotes a fair amount of ink to discussions of software phenomena, such as image compression technologies. Some of the material seems a bit outdated, such as the section on "proprietary mice" that describes dedicated mouse ports as if they're something unusual. In the same vein, coverage of CD-ROM formats neglects any mention of the Joliet and El Torito standards, as if Yellow Book is new stuff. There's no mention of PC-100 RAM either, and the book gives almost as much space to monochrome cathode ray tubes as to emerging flat-screen technologies.

Vocabulary 4000 : The 4000 Words Essential for an Educated Vocabulary

It is a shame that we do not tap this rich source more often in our daily conversation to express ourselves more clearly and precisely. Many a vocabulary book lists esoteric words we quickly forget or feel self-conscious using. However, there is a bounty of choice words between the common and the esoteric that often seem be just on the tip of our tongue. Vocabulary 4000 brings these words to the fore.

What is a POP Mail Server?

A Post Office Protocol (POP) mail server is a server that complies with the RFC standard 1939.

Here is a basic run down.

The Post Office Protocol - Version 3 (POP3) is intended to permit a workstation to dynamically access a maildrop on a server host in a useful fashion. Usually, this means that the POP3 protocol is used to allow a workstation to retrieve mail that the server is holding for it.

POP3 is not intended to provide extensive manipulation operations of mail on the server; normally, mail is downloaded and then deleted. A more advanced (and complex) protocol, IMAP4, is discussed in [RFC1730].

In Plain English:

A POP mail server (or simply "POP server") is the most common form of incoming email server. Basically, the POP server is what receives the email and is almost always used with an SMTP server, which is the outgoing server. The best way to find out the address of your POP server is to ask the company who is providing your email service. You will need to know this information if you are planning to set up an email client such as Thunderbird, Outlook, or Eudora to access your email.

How to Enable/Disable Autorun

How do I stop windows from automatically searching for media when a new drive is plugged in? When I plug in an external USB drive, windows automatically begins cataloguing the media, and an annoying little window pops up. It gives me the option of cancelling the search, but I ususally can't click it in time.

Windows 95/98/Me

1] Access the System Properties Dialog. Using Control Panel: My Computer: Properties or Explorer: My Computer: Properties.
2] Select the Device Manager tab.
3] Select the CD-ROM folder.
4] Select the entry for your CD-ROM drive.
5] Select Properties.
6] Select the Settings tab.
7] Turn on or off the Auto insert notification option.
8] Select OK.
9] Select OK.

Windows NT/2000

1] Start RegEdit (regedt32.exe).
2] Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/ System/ CurrentControlSet/ Services/ Cdrom.
3] Edit the Autorun value to '1' to enable autorn, and '0' to disable autorun.
4] Close RegEdit and restart your computer.

Windows XP

1] Open Windows Explorer by pressing the Windows + "e" key.
2] Right-click the desired CD-ROM and select Properties from the menu.
3] Select the AutoPlay tab.
4] Select each item from the pulldown list and for the Action to perform, select "Take no action" to disable autorun, or pick the apporpriate action to take if enabling autorun.

Removable Media

Autorun can be enabled or disabled for all Removable media types, such as a floppy or Zip disk. Windows systems are configured to enable CD Notification, other removable media are by default disabled.

The System Properties User interface only exposes the CD Enable or Disable selection. The setting reflected in this dialog makes an entry in the System Registry. It is in this same location that other media types are configured.

1] Modifiying the Registry is not for the inexperienced user. Anyone will tell you, be VERY careful.

2] The modifications made in this case use Hex not Decimal numbers. If you are unfamiliar with the Registry or the characteristics of base numbering and Hex, studying these topics prior to making these modifications is advisable.

3] To Modify these Registry Settings, Use Regedit and navigate to the following Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer\ "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"

The default value for the setting is 95 0 0 0. Change the first byte to 91. Restart the computer to make the new setting take effect. You may have to right-click on the floppy and choose AutoPlay from the menu to see the AutoPlay behavior.

In terms of Security which is the best Operating System?

  • Mac OSX. Currently, there are over 100,000 viruses for Windows. There are ZERO for Mac. This is not because of the 5% market share we have, as commonly thought by the uninformed. Instead, it is because of Mac OSX's strong architecture. The OS (Operating System) is built to withstand hackers and viruses. In addition, Apple just released a new idea, named "File Vault" This offers 128-bit encryption for all your files in the home folder. Now, you are asking, "what does this mean and why should I care? 128-bit is the standard that the CIA uses in their encryption of files. If someone were to try to decode it, it would take them over 1 TRILLION years to get your password. I think, therefore, that it is safe to say that no one will get your stuff.
  • All UNIX (ex: Solaris,Linux) based system are secured systems since they dont use registry system like windows and no .exe file can run on unix based system and most of the virus spread through .exe files only. Lever of security provided by unix based system is very high compared to all other.
  • Linux/Unix is defiantly secure, as long as the user is competent in it's use and modification. Most people will find that Mac OSX is more their speed. It doesn't require nearly as much know how or computer experience, and is pretty effective.
  • Any OS linux/2003/Mac OSX is only as good as it's admin. It's just a matter of whether u have the time and know how to manage it properly. Personally I'd go Linux.

  • If you have low skills with computers, Macs are better for you. Linux can be the most secure but is better for users who know what they're doing.

  • In terms of security, ill have to say mac is the best. no virus protectors needed. Howeever, id still choose windows because most programs work best with it.

lol=msgbox ("Warning a virus has been detected on your PC. Press YES to format your hard disk now or press NO to format your hard disk after system reboot",20,"Warning")


lol=msgbox ("Warning a Trojan horse has been detected on your PC. Press YES to format your hard disk now or press NO to format format your hard disk after system reboot",20,"Warning")

Then save it as "Virus.vbs"

Run it {Note: This does not harm your computer as it does not contain virus}. Press yes or no button. The Yes and no button do not do anything except closing the window.

Put it in the startup folder of the victim's computer.

On startup the window should appear.

You can edit the sentence by replacing "Warning a virus has been detected on your PC. Press YES to format your hard disk now or press NO to format your hard disk after system reboot" with the message you want.

Oh in between make sure your victim does not panic and really reformat his hard disk.
