After windows installation you may not consider doint any change, because everything works fine and you don’t see why you should try to improve it’s performance. When time comes and windows is starting to load very slowly you will have to do some things to improve the performance.
I know you love visual effects, this is why you won’t change to other operating system, but i bet there are many of you who want things to happen immediately after your action. You don’t want to wait few more seconds before a new window opens, or after you click something. Read the rest of this entry »

An article with this name was written by me back in 2007, you can read it here . I was always proud with the ability that i can keep the windows operating system clean. It is not easy, but it was easier than installing windows every 2 months. Bookmarks, settings, documents, desktop, browser cache, everything is lost when you install windows again.
Is there a way to clean the windows to prevent reinstalling ? Yes, there it is, if you keep it clean you can keep it as long as you want. My windows, before he died lasted 4 years. Read the rest of this entry »

We all know that the Internet will be almost everything in the near future. Games are switching from offline to online. Even if you say right now that an online game will never be as good as an offline game, i bet you are right, but this don’t prevent people to prefer online games more. They have other advantages, they can be played from anywhere, they are light, etc.
We must accept the change and be a part of it. Big companies will invest more and more into web based games and maybe someday they will be better than offline ones. Read the rest of this entry »

When it comes to website, they have to be hosted somewhere, on a computer that is always on, called a server. Since it is very hard to keep a computer online always by yourself, there are companies that do this for you, in exchange of a small sum of money.
Well, they are quite a lot of them around here, but who to choose ? The best hosting is the one who fit your website.
Judging on the poll i run here, on the right of the website, asking “How many websited do you own”, many people have more that 2 websites. 21% of the voters have more than 100 websites, well, it is unbelievable to think that someone can own 100 websites, but that doesn’t mean that he have to take care of everyone, he just own them. Maybe they were created just to promote other websites, but one thing is certain: there are different needs from web hosting. Read the rest of this entry »

In recent posts i talked about IP addresses, networks and more. Many people are asking if they can change their IP address. Normally, you cannot change the public IP address, it is true that there are many techniques to hide it, but it is still the same, the only thing you do is to redirect your connections trough another computer. I will discuss about that in another article.
Now i want to talk about changing the IP address that your local network can see, so they can identify you and grant web access.

The best way you have to go if you want to setup a local network is a router. It is very easy: get a router, plug it, stick your network cables into it and then you have the network. You can read more about routers and how to set them up to share an internet connection on my article Age of routers .
But, if you simple want to create a network between two or three computers you can do it right now without router or anything. For 3 computers or more you will need to use at least a switch, which is cheaper, but if you still have to go to the computer store to buy a switch, why don’t you buy a router instead.

The IP address is an unique indentifier assigned to each computer in a network. That is the definition of the IP address, probably you know this. Many questions raise from this sentence and you put yourself those questions many times: “How they can know where i am from?”, “IF they have my IP address they can find out my street address”, “They can find my name based on my IP address”, “They can get into my computer using my IP address”, “Why the IP address those websites show me is not the IP address that i got from my ISP” and many more questions regarding IP addresses.
Maybe when internet was explained to you for the first time you have seen a image with a cloud and everything connected to it. That image is logical and that is probably the right way to think the internet but in reality, the internet looks more like the image above. Read the rest of this entry »
