How to Be Invisible


It's hard to say how private investigators would react to books like J. J. Luna's How to Be Invisible while it makes their jobs a lot harder, most of them are paid by the hour. If you want to withdraw from the snooping eyes of the government, corporations, stalking ex-boyfriends, or practically anyone else, this practical, down-to-earth guide will help you and your family vanish. It's not a glamorous James Bond life Mr. Luna is inviting you to take part in; it's probably much like the life you're living right now. Spending much of the early part of the book frightening the reader with tales of stalkers and mistaken identities, the author successfully makes his case that a few adjustments to an individual's personal information flow can make a life-or-death difference. While getting his plan off the ground will take a bit of planning and effort (you have to move at least once to clear your trail), it is sustainable and worthwhile even for those who think they have nothing to hide.

What is Python Programming language?


Python is a general-purpose, very high-level programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes programmer productivity and code readability. Python's core syntax and semantics are minimalist, while the standard library is large and comprehensive. Python supports multiple programming paradigms (primarily object oriented, imperative, and functional) and features a fully dynamic type system and automatic memory management; similar to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, and TCL.

Python was first released by Guido van Rossum in 1991. The language has an open, community-based development model managed by the non-profit Python Software Foundation. While various parts of the language have formal specifications and standards, the language as a whole is not formally specified. The de facto standard for the language is the CPython implementation.

What are Templates?


"Templates" can have different meanings, depending on the application of a "template". Normally, as far as computer usage goes, templates are considered as files (or "skeleton" documents) to help computer users to create a new file (or document) based on the information contained in the generic or skeleton file.

For example, if you use a word processor, you can create a letterhead for the company you work for, with only company information contained in it, and with no "body text". When this document is saved as a template, you can easily create a company letter, by using the letterhead template. When you create the new document, you can base the new document on the template, resulting in a document with a letterhead already completed, which will save you loads of time. Now you only have to fill in the text that applies to the specific document that you want to create.

Why does Internet Explorer take more than 200MB of memory?


The term "Explorer" can be reference in several ways, as the Windows operating system uses three individual types. 1. Internet Explorer - The obvious web browser 2. Windows Explorer - For listing the contents of the hard drive 3. Explorer - the actual GUI (Graphical User Interface) which provides the graphics and "point & click" functionality while running Windows.

As 200mb seems an excessive amount for any program to be using, this very likely could be a result of a possible virus/spam or unnecessary programs running in the background.

Try this if you haven't yet done it.

There is a fantastic system utility, called Faber Toys. It's mainly developed for power users who want to know what programs are running in the background and the processes as well. It's very similar to clicking CTL-ALT-DEL on your system, but also informs you of what those programs are used for.

After determining which programs are not needed you can then prevent those from starting up automatically by unchecking them in MSCONFIG. MSCONFIG is a system configuration utility in Windows. 1. Go to (start), (run), (type msconfig), (start up tab). 2. Uncheck all programs that start from a fresh boot. 3. After making those changes you must restart Windows. 4. Check to see if the explorer.exe memory usage is the same.

Lynda.com - Photoshop CS3 Mastering Lab Color


Based on the device-independent CIE specification from 1976, Lab color is frequently misrepresented as a techy, labor-intensive color space. In fact, Lab color performs certain types of color modifications more quickly and with better results than RGB. In Photoshop CS3 Mastering Lab Color, Deke McClelland explores how to use Lab color "to make bad photographs great and great photographs even better." He demonstrates image manipulations that are best suited to Lab, and walks through a typical, non-destructive Lab correction. Deke also shows how to correct lighting, apply selective color modifications, and reverse the effects of color cast. Exercise files accompany the course.

Wild Down Under, Episode I, II, III, IV, V & VI


Wild Down Under is a BBC nature documentary series exploring the natural history of the Australasian continent, first transmitted in the UK on BBC2 in September 2003. It was broadcast in Australia under the title Wild Australasia in February 2004. Each of the six episodes showcases a particular environment and, using a combination of sweeping aerial photography and wildlife footage, reveals how physical forces and human activity have transformed Australia from a lush green wilderness into a thriving nation increasingly plagued by drought and desertification. Wild Down Under was co-produced by the BBC Natural History Unit, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Animal Planet. The series producer for the BBC was Neil Nightingale, the music was composed by Adrian Johnston and the English-language narrator was Matt Day.
