Once you have a computer unit at home or office and you start using the internet, you can also expect virus to invade you computer if you are not careful enough. One of the computer sets in our Church office was destroyed when a young people inserted her USB to extract a file for the youth church. A virus invaded our unit and a malicious site just appeared. After restarting our computer, we just found out that it will not open anymore. Our friend suggested for us to buy a Computer repair software so we could take care of our units. It’s quite expensive nowadays for computer repairs and we need to take extra caution and be responsible enough in using the internet.
Construction projects are huge and complicated work. I know it because I have been in the industry for the past 20 years. The task is daunting especially if you are the project manager. Every employee produce works to further the project and that creates a ton of files to sort through. Each contractor, consultant and engineers and everyone involved in the project communicates with one another to ensure the direction of the collaboration is mutual. These communication can happen at meetings, over the phone, radio or via email. At the end, it is difficult to keep track of all this communication. Some of the information becomes obsolete as time flew . I remember when I was still a fresh graduate with my Civil Engineering , everything was manual then. I started as an apprentice to the biggest construction company in our region and was assign in monitoring materials and equipment usage, I was faced daily with bulk of paper works. Encoding of data were all manually encoded. It takes time to print and re-check the data.
Now with the onset of modern technology managing a project is made easier through computer program software. The wealth of information flows out of on every project are monitored, recorded and evaluate easier. Have you heard of SEER Product Tools? It is a project management tool which would allow you to describe a project in a few simple steps, and based on sound science and applicable project histories. The tool would be of great help as it provides you with the most likely estimate for project cost, effort, and duration. It can analyze and test trade-offs in a matter of seconds by changing one or more project variables. Why SEER? Because it can determine specific percentage probabilities for achieving project objectives, and further, how those probabilities could be improved by small changes in various underlying constraints and assumptions. It can let you create privacy controls.
For more information about the tool, you can look at the diagram below, A flow chart at how SEER tools work.
If you wish to know more about this tool, please visit their website. I am sure the site would be a great help to you.
A churchmate who’s an IT expert changed our computer operating system to Windows 7. At first I was hesitant considering the havoc that Windows Vista has created, but he was persistent that it is manageable and would surely be an advantage on our side. True to his words, I found out some features that were better than the older version.
1. The Alert pop ups which produced a havoc and head ache for the users have been reduced. 2. The looks (user interface) have been modified, specially with icons that tell more about the application they lead to. 3. A new feature called “Jumplist” is being introduced from where we can quickly browse and move to most recently accessed files and programs. 4. Windows 7 claims to use memory very efficiently, and hence resulting in better machine speed and performance. 5. It boasts of being more secure with more security implications added to the OS and the web browser embedded with it. 6.Faster Uploading and Downloading
New Year is coming, how about changing your OS to Windows 7? What other new things coming up for 2010? Ooooppsss before I forget, I want contemporary leather sofas for next year. I guess this would be a good combination with my new Windows 7 in a flat screened monitor.
Same as automotobile, our personal computer needs regular maintenance. “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is usually our attitude . We run for help when the condition of our car is already severe .The result? Damages winds up costing the owner more to repair. The same is true with our computers.
When we bought our new flat screen Quad duo high-end home computer , hubby made a bi-monthly schedule for its maintenance. Thank God we had a friend who is an IT graduate who does the job. Maintaining your computer allow it to run faster and more efficiently, it significantly extend its life and prevent most problems before it occur. Important tips our friend reminded us are : To Never over heat the computer. If it’s running too hot, it is at risk to premature hardware failure. To always check the programs and files installed in the computers. To maximize the disk space duplicate file finder is necessary. Last month when we cleaned-up our system, there were lots of duplicated files of audio, video, games and photos. We were able to free 2G. Store your audio, video and photos on CD’s or DVD’s and delete unnecessary programs to have sufficient free disk space.
