Welcome to my technology blog covering a wide range of technology topics and life hacks, including desktop PC, smartphones, tablets, Raspberry Pi, software, security, operating systems, mobile, storage, servers, gadget hacks and technology companies such as Microsoft, Google and Apple.
Here you will find my tutorials on everything from making the switch from Windows to Linux, building your own cloud server, working with a Raspberry Pi. You can also find my tech gadget reviews, privacy and security articles and some hardware hacks.
I bought a new laptop the other day, an HP Pavilion tx1250 Entertainment PC, which came pre-loaded with the new Windows Vista operating system.
I have a 3.2Ghz Pentium 4E with a Prescott core. This type of processor has been dubbed "press hot" as they are one of the hottest running CPU's on the market. In fact, they run so hotly that Intel quickly redesigned and released a new version "Cedar Mill" that runs much cooler.
From the early 1970's it was realised that the current analogue telephone system, which had been established internationally over several decades, was now required to carry digital signals.
A short, but technical guide on how Digital to Analogue Conversion electronics works in simple circuits.
Irrespective of the format of the signal to be transmitted throughout the network there must be an infrastructure provided to transport the information. There are currently three broad categories that provide this function.
How Analogue to Digital Conversion works to convert an analogue signal into a digital format.
There are many different methods (topologies) for interconnecting two or more digital computers together in a network. This guide outlines the advantages and disadvantages of the most common network topologies.
The OSI 7 Layer Model is a solution to the chaotic early development of LANs, MANs, and WANs from the early 1980's which saw tremendous increases in the numbers and sizes of networks.
Decode the sequence of beeps to determine a BIOS or system error.
When the German physicists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann discovered nuclear fission in 1939 they unleashed a genie that changed the world forever. With the ever increasing risk of global thermonuclear war, this guide should help prepare and survive a nuclear bomb blast.
