Hey. Why Don’t You Take A PIC Already?

July 11th, 2015

ppcWhen we’re talking PIC replicators, you have to remember that Pins 6 and 7 of IC3 receive clocked data from J2, which is connected to a PC’s printer port. Keep in mind that when we use the printer port to transfer information between the PC and the PIC Replicator, we’re sticking with the traditional output-only and input-only lines of the port. The bi-directional features of the parallel port are not used in the PIC Replicator as some of the parallel port lines are dedicated to output functions only. Using the bi-directional capability in that instance could cause port-pin conflicts that could result in unpredictable logic levels and damage to IC3 or the parallel-port circuitry. The big picture here is to use the available hardware resources in their simplest manner without adding additional gates and

If you have accidentally messed up your files and you have done all the possible means necessary to retrieve the files but to no avail, your final laptop data recovery option is to call on a data recovery service.

There are numerous data recovery services found online, and there may even be some in your area. These services may be provided by local computer experts, or can be run by big computer companies. These services may be your final way to retrieve that much wanted data, and with the help of computer experts employed by these services, there is a good chance of laptop data recovery.

The following are some considerations for selecting the best data recovery service. First, choose the service that has the highest success rate. Your priority is to reclaim your files and you want everything complete and intact if possible. Second, go for the service that has established a good reputation. A company that does what it promises to do is a reliable company, and when you seek assistance from such a service, you can be assured that you are in good hands. Third, consider client feedback and comments. Previous customers are a wonderful source of the company’s service performance, so it really helps to do your homework and read online reviews. Fourth, consider the price. Ask yourself how much you are willing to pay to get back the files you lost, and look for a company that offers the best recovery price.

You are not the first one to lose data from your laptop, and you certainly will not be the last. Laptop data loss occurs every day, just as laptop data recovery services are utilized daily. Before you throw your laptop out of frustration from constantly failing and messing with your data, you may want to try some laptop data recovery methods first.

There are many such software programs available online, and because they are designed for non-technical computer users who like to do things by themselves, the instructions provided are easy to follow. When your first option fails to yield the results you like, you can then turn to the second option, which is to bring your laptop to the local repair centre. This method is efficient, although time consuming and does not really provide data security. Most local repair shops can fix your laptop and retrieve data if the failure if due to logical concerns, however if the laptop failure is more extensive and because of logical reasons, your third option is to bring your laptop to a hard drive data recovery specialist. Though the specialist has a better chance to retrieve your data from the damaged laptop, you should be prepared to pay a good price for the service because it is usually expensive.

Now that we know that hard drive problems can either be caused by hardware or software, this article focuses more on external hard drive repair if the problem is determined to be a software issue.

If you’re encountering an external hard drive problem, better wish that it’s only a software issue. Many guarantee that software is a lot easier to deal with since the workaround is only to install and scan. Hard drive repair for a hardware problems requires a more skillful execution and on that note, this means that you might need an extra hand to do the job.

The very basic approach is to open the device, slowly and carefully. Check for any lose ends; make sure that everything is in their proper place. If the arms of the platters are bent, try to straighten them up. After this, bring back all the parts and test it out. Apparently, if the procedure will not resolve the issue, the only thing that can be done to continue the external hard drive repair is to ask for that extra hand.

Mac Old Times Are Good Times

December 30th, 2014

Humankind has gotten more comfortable with computers over the years, and I’m convinced that this has less to do with operating systems and Killer Apps than it does with simple, caveman-type responses to concepts of Scale.

The Number One most terrifying concept to your basic caveman was, of course, God. So enormous that you couldn’t see Him, touch Him, or hear Him (the prophets notwithstanding), He nonetheless had a very real impact in terms of earthquakes, lightning, and other forms of mass entertainment of the day. Next down were the cave bears and saber-toothed tigers. Enormous, yes; terrifying, definitely. But you could see them, and anything you could see you could run away from.

Humankind really started feeling comfortable with the natural world only after it had been domesticated and could actually do useful things for people. The cow gave us milk, for which we were grateful, but it was the dog that we wound up slinging Frisbees at. Why did Benji: The Hunted star a small cuddly stray mutt instead of an asphalt-clomping stray Holstein? Scale, ladies and gentlemen . . . scale!

December 21st, 2014

I had a dream about a database beyond anything I, or anyone had ever seen. It was crazy. And when I got my hands on it, it all went like this:

dataIt was time to try the interface. I assumed the role of a student, and selected the basic search mode. The default box was keyword with an option to click on title, author, or source. The default operator was adjacency, and when I typed in my topic as a phrase, that’s exactly what I retrieved. As I read over the brief citations that were listed by relevancy in Read the rest of this entry »

Multiple Web Servers, Tons Of Power

November 3rd, 2014

Can you have multiple Web servers, application servers, and database servers without transaction-oriented middleware? We doubt it.

Oh, what a tangled Web we weave when first we practice to write three-tier Web-based applications without using transaction processing (TP) monitor middleware. The same software technology mainframes use to process millions of transactions per day, recast into Web-suitable form, is a sine qua non for developing and running business-automation applications on an intranet or the Internet.

The effort to program the business logic isn’t the issue here. Supporting thousands of clients is. Business logic analysts and programmers have neither the time nor the expertise to create the transaction-oriented, network-based architecture a high-volume application will demand in everyday use; they have enough work to do automating business procedures and rules.

Fortunately, a small but growing group of vendors offers Web-aware TP monitor tools you can choose from. Some of these are mature, pre-Web products to which vendors have added Web awareness, while others are new tools designed expressly for use within applications based on Web browsers and HTTP servers. Read on to explore the software technologies embodied by Web-based TP monitors.
