Training

The original PHP release was created by Rasmus Lerdorf in June 1995 for his own personal use, to make various common web programming tasks easier and less repetitive and to track the visitors to his online resume.

In 1997, the software transformed from a personal development project into a professional development effort. The name originally stood for “Personal Home Page,” but has since become a recursive acronym, standing for PHP Hypertext Processor.

The goal of this release was to minimize the amount of code required to achieve results, which led to PHP being HTML centric–that is, PHP code was embedded inside HTML.

The second PHP release, known as PHP/F1 2.0 was the first to achieve wide spread popularity, and despite the parsing inconsistencies, it managed to attract a few converts.

The release of PHP 3 was largely driven by Zeev Suraski and Andi Gutmans, who rewrote PHP from the ground up and removed the parsing problems. PHP 3 also made it much easier for others to extend the language. PHP 3 has live up to the design goals of improving the performance of complex applications and modularity of PHP’S code base. Apart from this, it provides end users with a solid infrastructure for lots of different databases, protocols and APIs.

Its successor, PHP 4, contained numerous major changes, including Zend Engine. PHP 4 has introduced multi-threading, which essentially allows particularly lengthy, but non-critical functions to be run independently from the main script process, further streamlining execution.

The engine took over the core of PHP and introduced reference counting, whereby all resources used in scripts (database connections, files, etc) are tracked automatically by the engine, and freed when no longer used to minimize memory usage and ensure there were no memory leaks. In short, Zend engine, take a leading role in improving the performance of PHP scripts.

PHP 5 offers three different types of properties: public, protected and private properties. PHP 5 was released powered by the new Zend Engine II. PHP 5 included new features such as:

Support for object-oriented programming, better support for MYSQL, embedded support for SQlite and integrated SOAP support.
The PHP Data Objects extension, which defines a light weight and consistent interface for accessing databases.
Performance enhancements
Data iterators
Error handling via exceptions

Although not as vast as the jump from PHP 3 to PHP 4, the move from PHP 4 to PHP 5 is still a big one.

Along with hugely improved object orientation, the addition of try/catch error handling, and exceptions, there are two major new extensions: simple XML, a fast and easy-to-learn way to interact with XML documents, and SQLite, a new flat-file database API that eases the burden of deploying simple database solutions.

Owning a computer, is in no sense these days counted as an item of luxury. With the increase in user demands and gradual multiplication of application in industry, the use of computers and computer peripheral devices can be found in every sphere of human walk. Education, shopping, banking, health industry, transportation, security- name a place and computers are there.

With the curves rising for demands of computers and the emergence of manufacturers and computer peripherals suppliers who acknowledge and then respond to these needs, which include computer peripheral and mobile handheld computer accessories, the market is highly competitive and tilted on the consumer’s side.

Computer peripheral has a narrow meaning that refers only to the input output devices of a computer, whereas, computer accessories has a broader meaning, that refers, all the parts that support a computer which includes motherboards, sensors, chips, including all the input and output devices. This makes the two terms different in meaning. Some of the more common peripheral devices are printers, scanners, disk drives, tape drives, microphones, speakers, and cameras. Computer peripheral accessory can also include other computers on a network system.

Computer networking hardware typically refers to equipment facilitating the use of a computer network. Typically, this includes routers, adsl hardware, hubs, gateways, access points, network interface cards, network bridges, modems, ISDN adapters, bulk ethernet cable, firewalls and other related hardware. Wireless networking in the forms of wireless lan networking or wireless broadband networking has become increasingly popular, however, especially for portable and handheld devices.

Although other network technologies exist, Ethernet has achieved near-ubiquity since the mid-1990s. Sometimes the word ‘controller’ and ‘card’ is used interchangeably when talking about networking hardware support because the most common NIC is the Network Interface Card. Although ‘card’ is more commonly used, it is in less encompassing. The ‘controller’ may take the form of a network card that is installed inside a computer, or it may refer to an embedded component as part of a computer motherboard, a router, expansion card, printer interface, or a usb hub or USB device.

To reach out to a larger number of consumers, computer peripheral suppliers in UK have a new platform, working efficiently- thanks to world of online shopping. Online shopping provides range and flexibility in prices to computer networking hardware peripherals UK up to an extent of cash backs and some heavy discounts. Internet houses a wider scope to reach out for numerous options of cheap shopping sitting at home only.

Hardware MIDI Sequencer Making music easier

Posted August 29, 2017 By gifto

MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and these MIDI Sequencers have become vastly popular among many musicians, professional and those who just do it as a hobby, because it makes music so much easier, especially if you don’t have a full band to back you up. Even if you are trained to play multiple instruments, typically, you won’t be playing them all at once, and having a full band to back you up is ideal. This is difficult for many people though, especially those who don’t make a living by being in a band, many people who are even in a band have scheduling issues, creative control struggles, and a variety of other issues that can often make the band either dissolve or their practices few and far between. With a hardware midi sequencer, you are able to simulate the parts of the band that might not be present via electronic instruments. Having an electronic band can help you practice and make your music more intricate and complex than it would be with simply one instrument. A hardware midi sequencer can do more than just mimic instruments electronically as well, it can read what you are playing, and break down audio into tones and musical notes, as well as manipulate or amplify sounds giving you total control over the way the music sounds when it is recorded and produced, or even as it is being played. Keyboard sequencers are another form of MIDI hardware and they can help adjust the audio of your music and perfectly hone the sound of the many electronic instruments you’ll have access to when utilizing this kind of hardware audio generation. As the years have gone on, MIDI technologies have enhanced and progressed greatly, and now multiple musical instruments can all be generated and augmented with a common sequencer. Then this sequencer can transmit the amplified data, with all the electronic instruments to the synthesizer. Postproduction audio software also allows you to manipulate your music even more. Keyboard sequencers are an easy and intuitive way to manipulate the audio of your music before it is sent to the synthesizer. If you purchase a MIDI controller, a hardware midi sequencer, and a midi synthesizer, you will be able to use them hand in hand to create an entire virtual band to play along to your music, as well as adjust their sounds on the fly and in post-production. You will also have the options to manipulate the sound of your own instrument through these devices and make creating professional sounding music easier than ever. Hardware midi sequencers are more advanced and common place today than ever before. They have provided a way for many artists, no matter how popular or at what level, to record and produce their music easier and quicker.

Is the forex megadroid robot really a viable strategy for profitable forex trading?

As a person who was still searching for the ‘Holy Grail’ of forex trading, it was a something I had asked myself not too long ago when I first came across the idea of automated forex trading.

I had been finding it hard to make any serious profit from forex trading since I took it up some 12 months or so ago, not least because I had a demanding full time job and a family that took up most of my time. I was desperate to get out of the 9 – 5 work trap I was in, and determined to find a way to earn a living from forex.

The Forex Megadroid Robot, whilst not being the only automated trading robot on the market, seemed like it could be the answer I was looking for. The big problem was that a part of me knew how dangerous a gamble it could be, and every time I thought about giving it a go I found this cautious part of me screaming its protest:

You cannot trust a robot to gamble with your money!

Any sane human being would have these same reservations, but then I learned something from the Forex Megadroid Robot website that made me reconsider. Something that meant I could actually try the robot out risk free.

My biggest fear was that I would set this robot up on my forex trading account, come back the next day and find it had gambled away my entire trading balance on losing trades, and my dreams of finding success in forex trading would be dead and buried.

What changed my mind was that not only does the Forex Megadroid Robot come with several risk/profitability settings, meaning you could set it to the low risk setting to test it out, but you can also actually test it out without risking a single bean. How?

You can even try it out on a demo account!

Only when you are completely satisfied that the robot really works do you actually have to risk anything by then using it on a live account, and you don’t have to do this until you are sure doing so carries absolutely zero risk.

I myself have been using it on a live account for a several months now, and I have to say that ithasconsistently made winning trades on the lower risk setting.

Of course, I haven’t been able to make the kind of huge amounts their website claims you can, but then again I have only yet tried it out on the lower risk settings. My next step is to slowly try out the more aggressive higher settings, and who knows how much it will make then!

What Is A Name Server

Posted August 28, 2017 By gifto

The computer cannot understand English or any other common language. The internet is a network of such computers that do not understand the language that the common man understands. This means that a domain name typed in like www.yourdomain.com will not mean anything to the computer. This domain name that you type in needs to be translated into a string of numbers for the computer to understand it. This string of numbers is called IP Address. It looks like this: 202.157.34.10.

It is not easy to remember a string of numbers like a domain name. Hence, we use domain names that we can understand and those domain names have corresponding IP Addresses that the computer can understand. But if this has to work, then every domain name should be translated into an IP Address that the computer understands. This translation is done by Name Servers. A name server is familiar with a domain name and their corresponding IP Addresses. Name Servers are also called Domain Name System Servers or DNS Servers.

All the information from all the name servers around the world is stored in a central registry. It takes between 8 and 48 hours for all the information to be updated in the central registry when a new domain name is registered. Name Servers from around the world can access this registry and when the domain name is requested, they can get the corresponding IP Address from this registry.

A domain name, when registered, needs at least two name servers. These are usually ns1.nameservername.com and ns2.nameservername.com. Here, “nameservername” is the name of the server. The first one is the primary name server and the second one is the secondary name server. The secondary name server acts as a backup that comes into effect only when the first name server is not responding.

Certain steps need to be followed while registering a domain name. These may differ a little depending on the registrar, but most of the steps are the same.

If you need to register a .com domain name, the steps are given below :
1. You get an account with the domain name registrar when you register a domain name. Log into your account with the registrar.
2. You will see an option to manage your domain name within your account console.
3. Select the domain name for which you want a name server. This will open a page for managing the domain.
4. Select “add name servers” on this page under the name server details section.
5. Enter the name and IP Address of the new name server and click on “Add”.
6. You should get a confirmation message indication that you have added a new name server once you are done with registering it.
7. Normally, you can start using the new name server immediately.

Forex Newbies – Let Forex Robots Trade For You

Posted August 28, 2017 By gifto

If you’re trading forex yourself using your own trading methods you will know just how difficult forex trading is. Sure it’s easy to open an account and start trading, but to consistently make money in the long run is something that few people manage to do, which is why forex trading robots are ideal for forex newbies.

It can take many years to come up with your own profitable trading system, and I’m speaking from experience here. I first started trading currencies several years ago now but it’s only during the last few years that I’ve started to make consistent profits week after week. It was a long learning curve and I openly admit that I lost a lot of money in the process of trying out lots of different trading methods.

I now have a tried and tested method which works well for me, but for most people new to forex trading, they will not be so lucky. In fact industry figures suggest only around 5% of people actually make money from forex trading, so is it ultimately worth spending hours on end poring over charts in the hope that you will eventually stumble on a winning system?

Well nowadays it’s actually a lot easier to start making money right from day one due to automated forex trading robots. These robots are now widely available to the general public, and are extremely popular because you simply configure them to work with Metatrader4, which takes just a few minutes, and let them run on autopilot.

They have been specifically designed to make money. The creators of these robots use complex algorithms to seek out high probability trades. Therefore you don’t really need to know much about forex trading yourself (although a little knowledge is recommended). All you do is enter your stakes and then sit back and let the automated system place trades for you.

Large financial institutions have been using trading systems such as these for many years, but now everyone can take advantage of these advanced trading robots in order to make money from forex trading. You don’t need to spend years learning how to trade yourself. You simply find a good trading robot and let it run automatically.

Of course some robots are more profitable than others, and some are not as profitable as they make out, but if you can find one with a solid track record going back at least a few years, then you could have a real winner on your hands. You shouldn’t expect to get rich overnight, but with a decent robot trading for you you can slowly build up your bankroll month after month.

Environmental Science Fair Project

There are increasing numbers of students who are choosing an environmental science fair project for their school assignments. Hardly a day goes by that there is not some sort of news event on the television regarding the problems we are facing with the environment. These students are choosing an environmental science fair project for school because they are interested in studying this area of science. Many of these students are very devoted to finding solutions to the current environmental crises. They have the long term vision that many adults lack by realizing that what we do now will affect the planet in a positive or negative way for years, decades, and/or centuries to come. They are taking this devotion to the cause and choosing an environmental science fair project as their topic of study.

An environmental science fair project can be presented on a wide variety of specific topics. Issues surrounding soil use and preservation are some of the most popular. These issues deal with loss of topsoil, which is where all the plant life is grown. This type of environmental science project can also examine the effects of runoff on the waterways of the world. The silting of rivers is a major concern due to the detrimental effects to plants and animals that rely on oxygenated water for survival. An environmental science fair project may also cover the issues surrounding the use of pesticides and other chemicals on the soil and surrounding wildlife. Students who demonstrate aptitude in these areas will likely continue their passion into their careers as agricultural scientists.

Other students who choose an environmental science fair project could focus on the latest increases in greenhouse gases around the Earth. While the task may sound too monumental for an environmental science fair project, there are ways to scale down the project. These projects are scientifically accurate and if properly implemented and documented can lead to the answers we are in need of to address this issue. Likewise, the study of animals such as frogs can lead to knowledge that can be applied on a larger scale. Frogs are the litmus paper for the health of water, and students can gather information in their local areas to determine the health of ponds and streams.

What is nlp? NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It was founded by Bandler and Grinder. The NLP model is a multi-dimensional process involving mind, speech and behaviour; The five senses have their own group of words and phrases.

The Five Modalities Visual – shine some light on, show, get a perspective, I see etc Auditory – tongue-tied, roared like a tiger, listen, say, whine etc Kinaesthetic – turn things around, get a handle on something, I feel, touch etc Olfactory – the sweet smell of success, sweet, perfume etc Gustatory – leave a bad taste in the mouth, tasty, bland, acidic etc

These also contain smaller units of encoding, which are called sub-modalities.

In the consulting room many hypnotherapists use NLP as part of my normal routine, such as using pacing, matching and body-language to build rapport with the client. NLP has also helped many therapists when questioning as it is that found there is more often than not eye movement and this can help you understand where the client may be processing the information, although this mustn’t be relied upon, this is called eye cueing. A large proportion of the NLP model is from Milton Erickson, so this allows NLP to be woven into hypnotherapy with great effect as some NLP techniques are used in a trance state and this allows you to by-pass the -conscious critical faculty’. The main NLP techniques I use in trance are the -Swish’ and the -Rewind’ techniques. Many of these techniques are within hypnotherapy training and training in hypnotherapy can be great fun. The Clifton Practice hypnotherapy clinic and training center in Plymouth, UK provides Practitioner Diploma courses in Hypnotherapy. Accredited as a bona fide hypnosis and hypnotherapy training school by The Hypnotherapy Society, The National Council of Psychotherapists etc.

How To Fully Clean A Virus Off Your Computer

Posted August 25, 2017 By gifto
robot-sunset

If you are anything like I am, you have been infected by at least one virus and occasionally have a really hard time removing it. I will show you to remove these tough viruses without having to rebuild your computer or pay someone big money to do so.

Ok so you notice your computer is running very slow. You run your virus scan software and find one or more viruses. You clean them up and your computer still runs slow. You cant figure out why so you run another scan and find out that the same virus is still on your computer. How does this happen?

Basically, there are viruses that will drop into protected system files or startup files that hide within your computer. Sometimes they cannot be removed without rebuilding your computer but there are a few ways around this.

First things first, get a computer toolkit ready to destroy the virus on multiple levels. I recommend a spybot scanner, adware scanner, and virus scan. Plus it always helps to have a strong registry cleaner. Once you have all of these tools ready to go, get them updated fully and download the latest versions of each if possible. After you have updated all of these tools DISCONNECT your internet connection from the computer.

It is essential to disconnect from the internet because most of the imbedded viruses will connect to their host site after the main piece is removed and will download and install itself again without you knowing. Run all of your scan utilities first and restart your computer after they have finished. Once the computer is started up, run the scans once more and restart if the virus is back. If you cannot remove the virus within three restarts, further action is required and will more than likely result in a rebuild.

If you remove it, run a registry clean to remove any leftover tag files. This will also help speed up your computer slightly. Refer to my article 5 Easy Tips To Keep Your Computer Running Smooth And Safe for more computer optimization tips. Restart once more and connect to the internet once more. You should run one more scan to verify the virus is gone. If it is we are ready to go. If it isnt removed you will have to take a couple more steps.
Use your scan utilities to find out exactly where the files are located and remove them from the registry. Be warned that removing registry files can break your operating system.
