Time Surely Has Changed …..

       25 Years Ago….

    A program was a television show
An application was for employment
Windows were something u hated to clean
A cursor used profanity
Keyboard was a piano
Memory was something u lost with age
A CD was a bank account
If u unzipped in public u went to jail
Compress was something u did to garbage
A hard drive was a long trip on the road
Log on was adding wood to fire
A backup happened to your toilet
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
Cut, u did with scissors
Paste, u did with glue
A web was a spider’s home
A Monitor was some one who used to keep watch on classmates in absence of teacher
A Desktop was desk’s top surface.
And a virus was the flu!

Time surely has changed

Computer printers as harmful as cigarettes: Aussie scientists

Beware, computer users! Your office printer could be posing as much danger to your lungs as a drag on a cigarette, according to Australian scientists.
After an investigation, researchers from Queensland University of Technology have revealed that some laser printers emit potentially dangerous levels of tiny toner-like materials in the air which could harm one’s lungs.
These ultra-fine particles are capable of infiltrating the lungs and causing lasting damage on the scale of inhaled cigarette smoke, ‘Sydney Morning Herald’ quoted researcher Prof Morawska as saying.
According to her, These (printer) particles are tiny like cigarette smoke particles and, when deep inside the lung, they do the same amount of damage.The health effects from inhaling ultra-fine particles depend on particle composition, but the results can range from respiratory irritation to severe illness such as cardiovascular problems or cancer.”
The conclusion came after the university’s International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health examined 62 printers and found that 17 were highparticle emitters. The study, published in the American Chemical Society’s Environment Science and Technology journal, found indoor particle levels in the office air increased five-fold during work hours due to printer use.
Printers emitted more particles when the toner cartridge was new, and when printing graphics and images as they require greater quantities of toner, Morawska was quoted.

Host your Website from your PC. (No need of any Hosting Provider) Completely Free

Those of you all reading this must be having a website/blog or may be wanting to make one. You may not be having good knowledge how to host a website. Here comes a very simple software which makes your PC a web host and the size limit is your hard disk size.

Thanks to this Pune startup company, now anyone with a personal computer (PC) and a broadband internet connection can directly host content on the world wide web (www) from their PC. Be it websites, photo albums or blogs. That too for free!
Infinishare Technologies, a provider of software products for internet and mobile access which has its development centre in the city, recently released the third version of their flagship suite of software products ‘Purplenova’. This easy-to-use version of the product, when installed on any internet-connected PC, allows users to web-host content by making content web-accessible with a uniform resource locator (URL) directly from where it resides, that is their own PC.

The technology is a sort of doit-yourself web-hosting solution for individual PC users and small offices. It also supports active content, web services and web applications.
Users can host any amount of content for either private or public access, the only limitation being the size of their hard disk. The content hosted using this software can also be accessed from a mobile phone, by entering the URL into any standard internet browser without needing any other additional software or plugin.
While publicly hosted content with it is searchable as it is picked-up by search engines, only such content which is explicitly selected for web-hosting becomes accessible to readers.
Traditionally, one needs a computer with a real internet protocol (IP) address to web-host content. But since a majority of computers at people’s homes or offices are behind routers or network address translation devices, they are unable to host content directly from where it resides, that is the user’s home or office computer, according to Anand Soman, the CEO and co-founder of Infinishare.
Therefore, most people depend on third-party hosting service providers, internet service providers or blog sites to host their content for a fee, which is usually upwards of Rs 5,000 per annum, depending on the space, email IDs and services taken. And to do that, they have to upload their content to the server of the hosting service provider.
“With our software, you do not have to upload any content as your content resides on your own machine. That puts the users in full control of their content,” said Milind Pandit, vice-president of business development and marketing of Infinishare.

It also enables users to keep their web-content fresh, as there are no hassles of uploading it every time they have to make changes, as the changes can be made on their own PCs, he said.
While the beta version is available for free on the company website (www.purplenova.com), any additional services like domain name pointing or technical services would cost the user. For instance, if you want a website to appear with only your name and do not want Purplenova mentioned in the URL hyperlink, then that would be a paid service.

75 Year Old has world’s Fastest Broadband 40Gbps

A 75 year old woman from Karlstad in central Sweden has been thrust into the IT history books – with the world’s fastest internet connection.

Sigbritt Löthberg’s home has been supplied with a blistering 40 Gigabits per second connection, many thousands of times faster than the average residential link and the first time ever that a home user has experienced such a high speed.

But Sigbritt, who had never had a computer until now, is no ordinary 75 year old. She is the mother of Swedish internet legend Peter Löthberg who, along with Karlstad Stadsnät, the local council’s network arm, has arranged the connection.

“This is more than just a demonstration,” said network boss Hafsteinn Jonsson.

“As a network owner we’re trying to persuade internet operators to invest in faster connections. And Peter Löthberg wanted to show how you can build a low price, high capacity line over long distances,” he told The Local.

Sigbritt will now be able to enjoy 1,500 high definition HDTV channels simultaneously. Or, if there is nothing worth watching there, she will be able to download a full high definition DVD in just two seconds.

The secret behind Sigbritt’s ultra-fast connection is a new modulation technique which allows data to be transferred directly between two routers up to 2,000 kilometres apart, with no intermediary transponders.

According to Karlstad Stadsnät the distance is, in theory, unlimited – there is no data loss as long as the fibre is in place.

“I want to show that there are other methods than the old fashioned ways such as copper wires and radio, which lack the possibilities that fibre has,” said Peter Löthberg, who now works at Cisco.

Cisco contributed to the project but the point, said Hafsteinn Jonsson, is that fibre technology makes such high speed connections technically and commercially viable.

“The most difficult part of the whole project was installing Windows on Sigbritt’s PC,” said Jonsson.
