Get your website listed, and ranked high in popular Search Engines for free! Learn the SEO basics from this FREE eBook!Submitted by Computer Help on Wed, 09/17/2008 - 2:45am
Gain traffic from Search Engines from simply reading a free eBook. Amazing Article!
Gaining a understanding for SEO:
I came across a eBook recently that involved some information about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The book outlines what the major Search Engines are looking for, and puts some of the myths and stories that you might have heard of to rest. I am really not a big fan of eBook's at all. In fact, this might be the only eBook I have read in at least 3 years. If you run a website of any kind, you have probably had to learn the hard way that you don't get this instant magic surge of traffic like some people make them out to be.
A website is nothing unless people are looking at it. You have to think of it the same way as a new phone number. For example, say you just started a business and you purchased a new (1 800) phone number to do business with your new customers or clients. You should know there is no way that anyone will be calling you on that phone number unless it was through advertising or by some other means. As you probably know, advertising services are not free. The good thing about the internet is that advertising is free but there's always a catch. You must put in your work to do it, or pay someone to do this work for you.
Fix Blinking, Flickering on Windows Vista! Famous nVidia Driver Bug!
Video or Monitor Flickering in Windows Vista:
You are probably reading this because you installed or upgraded to Microsoft Windows Vista and you going out of your mind with the stupid flickering. This seems to commonly happen the most when you have a window open with video files such as, MPG, MPG2, AVI, VOB, and other type of files. Mostly this happens just by single clicking on the file trying to preview the movie in the windows preview pane. It has also been reported that this can happen just as easily when you try to launch a video or movie file in Windows Media Player, or with any other Video Player that you might have installed on your computer.
Now from what I understand there is a slew of variations of this problem. I will go over how to fix the most common ones, but if it doesn't help you, you will have to contact me, or leave a forum posts requesting more help. Please include all error information and walk us through step by step what your seeing and doing on your computer when the flickering occurs in Windows Vista. This issue has also been known to happen on a 2 or 3 monitor setup on the computer. The issue is not related to the splitting, so if your using multiple monitors and thinking that might be the problem, your wrong.
The solution for this variation of the flickering in Vista, is pretty simple to complete. Below are just a few steps you'll have to follow to get rid of this annoying flicker problem that your having. The goal is to disable the preview pane option to fix this.
1.) Right click on [My Computer] from your Desktop.
2.) Go to [Advanced / Performance] tab. Now, click the custom option if it's not already enabled or clicked.
SmartFTP Recently Charging for their Popular FTP Client!
SmartSoft Ltd. has recently made the decision to no longer offer their down scaled version of SmartFTP free of charge any longer. Below are the prices which seem to be rather high for what is free on the market already:
+ SmartFTP Home Edition +
+ Smart FTP Professional Edition +
From reading various forums and message boards, people seem to think this is a very bold move on their part. As someone stated a few hours ago in a thread I was reading "this is a slap in the face to people who don't know any better, and disrespectful to the ones who do". Some are complaining that the price is way out of line for a product of this caliber.
I always used and recommend CoreFTP Lite to my friends. I have never needed a feature for a FTP function that CoreFTP Lite hasn't been able to provide me. I do a lot of web development, design, and script installation and it seems to work flawlessly. If anyone is interested in downloading this free ware product, you may download the 'Lite' version, which is what I use, at this link here:

How To Guide :: Setup your own IRC Server using a personal, or dedicated system or server. Top Freeware Downloads Included! ::Submitted by Computer Help on Mon, 09/08/2008 - 8:29am
Setup a IRC Server on your Personal Computer or Dedicated Server!
Below you will find a list of IRC server software packages and applications that can be ran on Windows, Linux, or Java, depending on the package you choose to download and use. Our website is hosting the files to this date as organizations like some of the ones listed below, have been known to fall under, due to lack of donations or desire to keep going on with their project. Down the road in the future, the files will still be available to download directly from this website if that should ever happen (Hopefully Not!). You are also able to follow the links associated with the desired applications, and download the most current version of the software from the developers website directly. Their home page website addresses are included in the lists below along with the downloads. All of the Applications and Packages that are listed below, have a Freeware License, or Free for use at the time of writing this article.
Getting prepared to setup a IRC Server yourself:
Before you go downloading and crank through the installation and settings, we recommend you think about a few things before getting started. There are many things you will want to consider before downloading.
* If you plan on running an IRC Server for you and your friends, and up-time, nor speed and reliability are a concern, then you can probably get away with running this on a personal computer in your home.
