The Ins And Outs Of Prostate Milking Or Prostate Massage

Although often thought of purely in terms of pleasure, prostate milking, which is also known as prostate massage, is frequently performed either as a form of self-massage or by a doctor for medical reasons.

Part of the male reproductive system, one role of the prostate gland is to produce a clear fluid which makes up about thirty percent of male seminal fluid and, in cases of chronic prostatitis or benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate milking can be used to reduce pressure in the prostate gland by removing excess fluid.

Although it is possible to perform prostate milking externally by stimulating the prostate through the perineum this method is not always successful and it is more usual for prostate milking to be performed internally using a finger, prostate massager or a medical massager.

If you wish to perform prostate milking yourself you should proceed as follows:

1. Before attempting prostate milking pay a visit to the bathroom to ensure that both your bladder and bowel are emptied.

2. Ensure that your fingernails are trimmed short and that your hands and the area around your anus are washed thoroughly.

3. Put a sterile latex glove onto the hand which you wish to use to massage the prostate gland and apply some water-based lubricant to your gloved fingers.

4. Adopt a comfortable position. The position which you adopt is not important as long as it is comfortable and allows you to gain easy access to the prostate gland with your gloved hand. Most people find that lying on their back or side is most comfortable.

5. Gently insert your finger (or fingers) into your anus and move it slowly forward along the wall of the rectum, as if you are heading for your belly button, until you feel the prostate gland. The prostate gland will feel like part of a small ball and is normally about the size of a walnut.

6. Having located the prostate gland, massage it gently along both sides but do not massage the central (top) area which contains several sensitive nerves.

7. After a few minutes of gentle milking the gland will be sufficiently stimulated to contract causing it to release its fluid. At this point you might experience a degree of sexual pleasure and, in some but not all cases, may also experience orgasm.

Although prostate milking can be extremely helpful as a form of preventative medicine and relieve the build-up of seminal fluid in the prostate gland, it is not without its risks. As a result prostate milking should not be performed if you are suffering from an acute case of prostatitis and should never be performed vigorously. If you are at all unsure about whether or not it is safe to perform prostate milking you should consult your doctor.

Make My Computer Faster – One Simple Step to a Faster Computer

Is your computer painfully slow? Does it take forever to boot up and when it finally finishes booting, does it seem like you can click on something and walk away for a coffee break before it opens up? You are not alone. Luckily, there is a very simple solution that you can implement in about 15 minutes that will do wonders for your computer’s speed and performance.

Just a few short years ago, if you wanted to perform maintenance on your computer and clean it up, you had to either take it in to a repair shop or hire expensive technical consulting to come out to our home and do it for you. However, times have changed and people want more control over their computers.

While there a number of things you can do to speed up your computer such as running a defrag on the disk drives or adding more memory, one of the most important things you can do is to get your hands on a registry cleaner.

Registry cleaners are super easy to use, and their benefits are huge.

What is the “Registry?”

Your computer’s registry is essentially a central directory in which all of your Windows settings and options are stored. The information contained within the registry includes entries for such things as hardware, software, users, user preferences, policies, etc.

What does a Registry Cleaner do?

Over time, due to the installation of new programs, the removal of old or unused programs and the constant updating and patching we do to our computer’s software, your registry will most likely become corrupt. This corruption leads to errors, blue screens, crashes, and a severe decrease in system performance.

What a registry cleaner does is scans your registry for corrupt entries and it fixes them. Whether it is unused entries that are just taking up valuable space , missing entries, or entries that contain incorrect information, a registry cleaner will go through your registry line by line and fix anything that it finds to be corrupted.

Once this occurs, your operating system as well as all the software you have installed will be able to find what it needs in a much more efficient manner, which results in an increase in the speed and performance at which your computer can perform tasks – essentially it will speed up your computer tremendously.

So if you are sick and tired of a painfully slow computer and are wondering what you can do today that will make your computer faster, go out and get your hands on a top of the line registry cleaner – you’ll be amazed at the difference once you have a clean and efficient registry again.

Yandere Simulator – A Stealth Video Game For The PC

Yandere Simulator is a free video game for PC users. It is a stealth type video game where the players play as a high school girl named Ayano Aishi. She is in love with her senior, senpai and wants to attain his attention by any means possible. It is quite a unique game with an addictive gameplay and good graphics. However, it is still in development stage and until it gets completed, it’s going to be a bit buggy.

The concept

Yandere Simulator is based on a typical Japanese high school theme. Ayano Aishi has a huge crush on her senpai and wants his love. However, she’s a bit reluctant to talk to him directly. And, to make things more difficult, it seems like her senpai is quite popular as other girls in the school are also trying to get close to him. Ayano has to eliminate her competition, and she can use all possible means to do so. Even blackmailing and killing other girls is allowed. However, she has to do these missions quietly, when no one is looking at her. Thus, comes the stealth element.

What’s in it for the players

Because of its high school drama element, the game is quite popular among the teenagers. However, that doesn’t stop some grown-up video gamers from playing the game. The gameplay is good despite the fact that the game is quite full of bugs. Control options are great, and the missions are challenging. To progress in the game players have to tasks that are quite immoral in the real world. However, it is this element that makes the game unique and addictive. Players have to complete the tasks without leaving any traces. Otherwise, Ayano will get caught and the game ends.

The game is quite detailed and relates quite much to the real world. For example, there is a social element in the game and that we live in a large group, we don’t want to get caught for the wrongdoings, etc.

The game is not complete

Again, Yandere Simulator is still in development stage and what available is the beta version. The developer of the game has made the beta version available on the internet for download and installation without spending any penny. Simply visit the official website to download the game. The download file is actually the game launcher using which you can also update the game. The game developer usually makes the update available after two weeks.

Since the game is still at testing phase, players experience quite many bugs, errors. In some cases, the game launcher doesn’t work and sometimes the game crashes. Also, you will never win the game because it is not complete yet.

Tunturi Exercise Bike Reviews

Quite simply, Tunturi make some of the best exercise bikes on the market and arguably make the best display consoles of any bike. The company makes different models to suit different fitness and feature-list requirements. The bikes range from mid-price to expensive. You could do far worse than opt for one of its machines. To help you along, here are some reviews of Tunturi bikes.

Tunturi are a Finnish company and its exercise equipment is very popular in Europe. Recently, its equipment is making inroads in the U.S., which isn’t surprising when you take at look at what’s on offer. Few competitors can match their build quality, feature-list and stylish looks.

What is fairly unique to Tunturi, though how long this will last before others also incorporate it into their products, is the ergometer function found on most of its bikes. What’s really cool about ergometers is that they provide detailed feedback on a variety of data during a workout. They’re useful if you want to repeat the same exercise routine, or monitor your calorie consumption during your workout.

Tunturi exercise bikes come with the best display consoles of any machine available. Many users, especially at entry-level, like displays that give great feed back, and are easily read and understood. A display should provide the motivation a user needs during a workout. The company provides two main types of display; T-Ride and T-Road.

The T-Ride is the base level display for the Ergometer bike range. The 3.8″ color LCD console tracks speed, distance, time, heart rate, energy consumption and effort. There are a number of landscape programs where slope affects the training intensity. Obviously, going uphill increases the intensity of the workout while going downhill decreases it. What’s nice about Tunturi’s bikes is that when in downhill mode the bike responds and feels exactly the same as if you cycling outdoors.

The T-Road is the more advanced display. The 7″ color LCD console displays the workout program as a real life, outdoor video stream. The video is perfectly synchronized with the intensity changes of the program; the faster you pedal, the faster the landscape changes.

The Tunturi F30 is the base level upright bike and retails for around $300. Its plus points are that it has built-in grip sensors and its recovery heart rate measurement evaluates fitness in just 60 seconds. It also comes with magnetic resistance of 9 levels. However, this model does lack the ergometer function and does not come with either the T-Ride or T-Road console.

The E40 is the next model up retailing for around $600. It does have an ergometer function and you get T-Ride console with 5 preset programs. You also get T-Scale, which allows you to edit and adjust the 10 pre-set HRC, power and resistance programs even whilst you’re working out. You select the training duration based on your target time and scale the training intensity based on your personal requirements. One drawback is that the wireless heart rate monitor comes only as an optional extra.

The E60 upright model retails for around $750. You get the same features as the E40 but you also get the wireless heart rate monitor. This machine would suit any serious cyclist.

The E80 is the top-end upright retailing for around $1,000. Additions to the E60 include the T-Road console, a race function, USB PC connection, 512 Mb USB memory stick included for data transfer and a versatile 20 user register for better feedback accuracy, personal settings and program memory. There is also an E85 version. The only difference between them is that the frame of the E85 is slightly different, being designed for the competitive cyclist. For the vast majority, the E80 is the better choice.

As well as uprights Tunturi also make recumbent exercise bikes. The models available are equivalent to their upright counterparts. Therefore the E40R has exactly the same features as that of the E40. Likewise the E60R is exactly the same as the E60. The E40R and E60R retails for around $800 and $1,000 resp.

They aren’t cheap but a Tunturi exercise bike does come with a ton of features and is extremely well built. If there is one criticism it is only about their price. Being imported does mean they are more expensive than other brands. But, having said that, they are still worth every penny if you take exercise seriously.

Different Types Of Pointing Devices

Devices of a desktop computer can be classified into two categories – input devices and output devices. Both of them together build a relationship between a computer and the external world. Input devices are the part of the hardware mechanism of the computer that changes information to make it acceptable by the computer. However, this information is completely under the user control that uses them to give commands or concepts that has to be processed by the computer.

There are different types of input devices. We have classified them according to the duration of the time period. Earlier, there were only different types of keyboards that are included in the category of input devices of computer. Like there are computer keyboards, chorded keyboard and keyer in the category of input devices only. But later on, with technological advancement, pointing devices were developed and got added in the types of input devices.

A pointing device is a hardware device that makes it possible for the user to install constant and multi-dimensional information in the system. The three main functions of the pointing devices are – to point somewhere on the monitor, click and drag. Motion of the pointing device on the table is followed by the movements on the screen. The most common pointing device about which everybody knows is the mouse. However, there are some other pointing devices as well and now, we will discuss about them.

Track ball is a pointing device that is mounted in the shape of ball in between the two mounts of the mouse. When the user rolls the track ball, the information on the monitor starts rolling either in the downward direction or in the upward direction. Another pointing device is the touch pad. It is generally used in the laptops. They are in the shape of a flat pad where rubbing finger leads to movement of cursor on the screen.

Space ball is used for the 3-D computer designs and is used by graphic professionals. Touch screen is also a pointing device which acts as a display and the device at a same time. User just needs to point over the screen of the computer to give it the desired directions. A light pen is also a pointing device. It is light sensitive device and is used to point out the displayed things on the computer.

Joysticks are the hand held devices that are used to handle video games on computer in the best way while pointing stick is used to touch the monitor for the computer for giving it commands and directions. And the last pointing device that is used quite commonly is the wired glove. By using the wired glove device, the wearer can give the directions to the computer by bending his fingers.

So, these were some of the pointing devices for the desktop as well as the laptop computers. More than half of them are used in our day to day lives while others are used for official professional purposes only.

Who Invented Dell Computers?

The invention and the history of the Dell computer is quite interesting. First of all, it was in 1984 when Michael Dell, a student at the University of Texas at Austin, created the company PC’s Limited. He only had a starting capital of $1,000. So what he did was he started working out of his dorm room to build personal computers made from stock components. These computers were to be IBM compatible because that was the standard at that time. If a computer were to function with various pieces of hardware, it needed to be IMB compatible since hardware and software programs were being designed to be IBM compatible.

It is when Michael Dell figured that selling computers directly to customers to determine customer need that he dropped out of college. His family then extended him the $300,000 in expansion capital that he needed to make his business take off.

A success

It was in 1985 that the Turbo PC was developed and it sold for less than $800. It contained an Intel 8088 processor that ran at 8 MHz, which is considerably slower than the computers that we use today. Computers today are running in gigahertz, which are hundreds and even thousands of times faster than the 8 MHz processor that Michael Dell was installing in his computers at the time. But the truth is that this was the best that could be done in 1985. The technology was developing.

But there was an aspect of PC’s Limited that was unique from the rest and continues to be this way today. It is the fact that customers could custom order their computers rather than buy a computer that was already assembled. This allowed individuals to receive computers at lower prices than what they could get with their competitors. This definitely worked because PC’s Limited grossed $73 million in its first year of trading.

The beginning of Dell

It was in 1988 that PC’s Limited became Dell. Prior to that, the company already had 11 international operations occurring, so the company was quite large. There were on site services set up to compensate for the lack of businesses acting as service centers for Dell computers. It was in 1990 that Dell attempted to sell through club houses, but had very little success with this. So it is then that Dell went right back to its direct to customer sales.

In 1996, Dell started selling computers on its website. An individual could go onto the website and custom design their computer so that it would be built to their specifications. From there, it would be shipped to the customer’s home. Financing was made available so that individuals would be able to acquire their computers easily.

In 1999, Dell became the largest personal computer seller when they took over Compaq computers. Their revenue topped $25 billion in 2002. Also in 2002, Dell started selling televisions and other electronic items. They now have Dell brand printers, LCD TVs, and much more. Because of the expansion beyond computers, Dell was changed to Dell Inc. in 2003.

It is amazing that this billion dollar company started in a dorm room with $1000 in starting capital. And Michael Dell has always stood by the principles of letting individuals have the capability to design their own machine. Although there are Dell computers now sold in various retail outlets, a person can still go to the website and design the machine of their dreams. And Dell also offers a lot of assistance for individuals needing help with their computers. They offer on-site services and so much more for the computer user so that they can have the best experience possible.

It's Time To Get The Best Computer Technical Support

In this paperless age, we are becoming increasingly dependent on computers for our day-to-day work both in the office as well as for personal work. Like any other gadgets at any given point of time, even computers can break down bringing all your works to a standstill. As a result, you will have to hire an efficient agency or individual who can come to your rescue and set right the faulty computer and put back your work on its right track. Getting the right computer technical support will make sure your computer is up and running in no time.

Types Of Support :

Well-experienced and kindly qualified technicians of the agency will attend to the faulty computer at the earliest and that would be a great relief for you. Some of these agencies also provide you technical assistance through chat, phone calls or emails. There are computer support agencies that provide you technical support via remote desktop technology; It is a time-saving method. The company provides every type of technical support like for home networking support which include addressing issues related to backups, remote access, router including wireless router, Ethernet and such other services. There is software support too like installing new software, updating the existing software and addressing problems concerning installed software.

Hardware Support Also Available:

In addition to these, the agency will also provide hardware support which includes replacement or repair of hardware or reconfiguration of the system with advanced hardware and so on. It is needless to mention effective technical support is very crucial for any organization which has computerized its office or technological processes. Some of the larger organizations will have its own computer maintenance section, but medium and small organizations will largely depend on the services of externally supplied computer technical support. Normally, these organizations will enter into Annual Maintenance Contracts (AMC) with the computer support agency which is considered to be most beneficial from the cost point of view.

Affordable Service Charges:

In fact, many of these computer support agencies have established 24/7 helpline so that calls from the clients could have been attended to on a priority basis. Some of the agencies have established branches so as to provide better service to its clients. As already stated, these computer service agencies also take up works on an AMC basis. The service charges of the computer support agency normally depend on the nature of the work or on an hourly basis. However, there are several agencies that offer a fixed price per month or an on-site rate (without callout fee) and of course, replacements of hardware would cost extra. This pattern of service charges is considered economic and many of the business houses now prefer a fixed price per month as an ideal pattern of service charges.

6 Things to Look Out for When Purchasing a New Processor for a Desktop Computer

The processor is one of the most important parts of a computer. It behaves like the “brain” of the computer, sorting out information. Every key stoke, click or command is processed by the CPU (Computer Processing Unit) and sorted, sending resources to different components in order to fulfill your instruction. When selecting a desktop computer the better the processor, the better the performance

Here are the two main factors to consider when buying a new processor

1. Number of cores

Since the mid 2000’s, Computer processors now contain multiple processing cores. The definition of a multicore CPU is a processor with two or more independent cores that read and execute program instructions. To use an example, a standard single core processor is like a single lane road and a multiple core processor is like a motorway, allowing information to be processed faster without any congestion (or information waiting to be processed). The more cores your processor has, the faster your computer. At the moment, there are many processor out there which have 2, 4 or 6 cores such as the Intel I-Core and the AMD Phenom ranges.

2. Clock Speed

The clock speed (Measured in gigahertz) is the rate which a computer processor executes instructions. When selecting a new processor, the higher the speed, the faster the processor will perform. Most processor’s on the market today generally range between 2GHz to 3GHz. Apart from the number of cores in the processor, the clock speed is the most important thing to look out for when shopping for a new processor.

Other things to consider

1. Hyper Threading

Hyper threading is an Intel technology which increases the performance of each processing core by allowing the Operating system (of the computer) to use two virtual processors per core. This technology, like Multicore processing, has been developed to improve the performance of the processor when doing multiple tasks at once. Buying a CPU with this technology may run between 15-30% faster (according to Intel). Hyper Threading is available on the latest range of Intel processors such as the I-core range.

2. Cache Size

A computer processor cache is used to reduce the average time to access memory. Like RAM (Random Access Memory, another component in the computer) the cache stores copies of data most frequently used by the processor to speed up the time it takes to process instructions. The larger the CPU cache, the more information the processor can access quicker meaning a faster computer.

3. Socket type

When buying a new processor for an upgrade or a new build, you will need to pay attention to the socket type to allow it to fit inside your motherboard. For each brand or range of CPU, it will use a specific socket type that will match the mother board to allow it to fit and work correctly. This information can be found on the product spec on the processor and motherboard. Buying a processor with a different socket style to the mother board (and visa versa) will leave you with something you wont be able to use.

4. Overclocking

Overclocking is the process of increasing the work load capability’s of a computer processor to improve performance. Popular with gamers, overclocking is achieved by altering the computer bios to tell the processor to faster than the manufactures deem recommended. One disadvantage of overclocking your computer can be the increased heat out put of your processor. To ensure you don’t damage your computer, you will need improved cooling and ventilation inside the case to ensure the CPU doesn’t exceed to recommended operating temperature (set out by the manufacture). You also might void the warranty with the CPU manufacture.

To conclude, when looking to buy a new computer processor, you will need to consider the points above. While all of the information above is relevant, the most important factors to consider are amount of number of cores and the clock speed of the processor. If you look for a processor with multiple cores and a high clock speed, you will be sure to buy a decent CPU

Great Plans For Building a Shed

Experience has taught me a few things about building I would like to share with you so that you will not fall into the trap I did.

When we moved into our house some years ago, there was one outbuilding already in place. Before long it was full of lawn working supplies.

Since the stuff a family treasures grows, the time came when my wife thought we were ready to add more storage space. I had built some small birdhouses, maybe a washing well or two for the children over the years. I thought my talents were sufficient to put up a simple storage shed.

I rushed out to the do-it-yourself store and purchased a bunch of lumber. It never occurred to me that I needed a set of plans. After all, we are talking about a simple storage shed here.

That was among the silliest things I think I ever did. Truly not a smart move on my part. I learned that trial and error did not a shed build.

Very soon I realized I was in way over my head, with no way to back out gracefully and recoup my loses. I learned that I wasted money and time because I did not approach my project in the right way.

This was not a birdhouse I was building and I was not using Popsicle sticks for wood. Time was gone, money was gone, and I had boards that I did not know what to do with.

Plus, the wife was not happy with me. To say I had created a mess was an understatement.

The wife encouraged me to understand that the need for a shed did not go away. Soon as I had some money saved and a long week end coming up, I decided to go back to my project, but this time, I intended to approach it differently.

Since my failed attempt to build a shed, I had been visited by the representative of the home owners association who told me as clearly as he could that what I had started did not conform to the association guidelines and it would need to be taken down completely , All the way to the ground.

That was not too hard to do, I reasoned, because I really did not get very far into the project before abandoning the plan I did not have.

The friendly representative cave me some tips, like learn what the guidelines are, get a building permit, get a good set of plans. He even cave me the internet address of a place to find plans to suit any project I wanted to take on.

Following the advice I had been given, I checked out the building codes for my part of town, and the home owners association guidelines. Once I thought I had a good handle on those two things, I was ready to go online and search for the right plans.

I found the website I was looking for and was amazed to find thousands and thousands of plans. It did not take me long to find a set of plans for just the right storage shed.

And, like the home owner association representative said, the plans came with a complete list of materials. I could buy everything I needed, and do not have left over wood or hardware.

The plans I chose even had a cut chart showing what size I needed to cut the wood. I was able to cut all the pieces of wood I would use before I started the building. That would prove to be a real time saver.

Since I was putting up another building on our property, you know the wife had to be consulted. And, lucky for me, I did just that. She helped me to understand how this building needed to blend in or match the house and the other shed building that was on the property.

Together we decided where this building would fit fit on our lot, and even the color to paint it when I finished the building.

With my new knowledge of the building codes and an understanding of the plans I purchased, I was able to get my project underway on my three-day week end. My shed building was finished and even painted before I had to go to work on Monday.

The wife and I think our building enhances the curve appealing of our property. Now that it is complete, we can move more of the stuff out of our garage and I will no longer be embarrassed to open my garage door.

Thinking of Cruising? Go Carnival!

Stepping out of your car at the departure port is only the beginning. If you’ve never cruised before, get ready for a vacation of a lifetime. The excitement that builds up before you step onto the cruise ship is not as big as the excitement you get once you actually start your adventure at sea.

Carnival Cruise Line definitely does a good job with keeping their guests happy and satisfied throughout the trip. The second you board the ship and place your belongings into your cabins, you’re constantly greeted with warm and friendly smiles from every employee on board. If you’re in need of something at any point in time, whether day or night, an employee will always be there to help you. Before the ship departs, everyone on board meets up in the theatre and goes over a safety briefing. This lets everyone know that they will not have to worry about their safety or anyone else’s safety while embarking on the journey at sea.

One of the best things about cruising with Carnival Cruise Line is there is always something to do. Whether it be early in the morning, middle of the day, or late at night.

There are activities for all ages day and night, and tons of entertainment which you really get to experience during those days at sea. I mean, some crazy hilarious entertainment such as dance offs and harry chest competitions. The activities that happen on board bring families and friends together and even help you make friends as well, that you could potentially keep in touch with for a lifetime. When your stuck on a boat for a few days with people, it’s nice to make new friends that you can hang around the casino with, maybe take dance lessons with and more. And Carnival definitely makes it easy to do so.

While on board, the employees try and bring people together with all of their shows, entertainment on the deck throughout the day, and so on. It’s nice seeing everyone gathered around in one big area laughing and dancing together. It makes the trip that much more exciting and fun.

Aside from all of the entertainment, the food on the ships are out of this world also!

All About Computer Viruses

Your computer is as slow as molasses. Your mouse freezes every 15 minutes, and that Microsoft Word program just will not seem to open.

You may have a virus.

Just what exactly is a virus? What kind is in your computer? How did it get there? How is it spreading and wreaking such havoc? And why is it bothering with your computer anyway?

Viruses are pieces of programming code that make copies of themselves, or replicate, inside your computer without asking your explicit written permission to do so. Forget getting your permission down on paper. Viruses do not bother to seek your permission at all! Very invasive.

In comparison, there are pieces of code that may replicate inside your computer, say something your IT guy thinks you need. But the code spreads, sometimes through your office network, with your consent (or at least your IT guy's consent). These types of replicating code are called agents, said Jimmy Kuo, a research fellow with McAfee AVERT, a research arm of anti-virus software-maker McAfee Inc.

In this article, though, we're not talking about the good guys, or the agents. We'll be talking about the bad guys, the viruses.

A long, long time ago in computer years, like five, most viruses were compared to a similar breed. They entered your computer through an email attachment or a floppy disk (remember those?). Then they attached them to one of your files, say your Microsoft Word program.

When you opened your Microsoft Word program, the virus replicated and attached itself to other files. These could be other random files on your hard drive, the files farthest away from your Microsoft Word program, or other files, depending on how the virus writer wanted the virus to behave.

This virus code could contain hundreds or thousands of instructions. When it replicates it inserts those instructions, into the files it infects, said Carey Nachenberg, Chief Architect at Symantec Research Labs, an Symantec antivirus software maker. Corp.

Because so many other types of viruses exist now, the kind just described is called a classic virus. Classic viruses still exist but they're not quite as prevalent as they used to be. (Perhaps we could put classic viruses on the shelf with Hemingway and Dickens.)

These days, in the modern era, viruses are known to spread through vulnerabilities in web browsers, files shared over the Internet, emails themselves, and computer networks.

As far as web browsers are concerned, Microsoft's Internet Explorer takes most of the heat for spreading viruses because it's used by more people for web surfing than any other browser.

Neverheless, "Any web browser potentially has vulnerabilities," Nachenberg said.

For instance, let's say you go to a website in IE you have every reason to think is safe, Nachenberg said.

But unfortunately it is not. It has virus code hidden in its background that IE is not protecting you from. While you're looking at the site, the virus is downloaded onto your computer, he said. That's one way of catching a nasty virus.

During the past two years, another prevalent way to catch a virus has been through downloads computer users share with one another, mostly on music sharing sites, Kuo said. On Limewire or Kazaa, for instance, teenagers or other music enthusiasts might think they're downloading that latest Justin Timberlake song, when in reality they're downloading a virus straight into their computer. It's easy for a virus writer to put a download with a virus on one of these sites because everyone's sharing with everyone else anyway.

Here's one you might not have thought of. If you use Outlook or Outlook Express to send and receive email, do you have a preview pane below your list of emails that shows the contents of the email you have highlighted? If so, you may be putting yourself at risk.

Some viruses, though a small percentage according to Nachenberg, are inserted straight into emails themselves.

Forget opening the attachment. All you have to do is view the email to potentially get a virus, Kuo added. For instance, have you ever opened or viewed an email that states it's "loading"? Well, once everything is "loaded," a virus in the email might just load onto your computer.

So if I were you, I'd click on View on the toolbar in your Outlook or Outlook Express and close the preview pane. (You have to click on View and then Layout in Outlook Express.)

On a network at work? You could get a virus that way. Worms are viruses that come into your computer via networks, Kuo said. They travel from machine to machine and, unlike, the classic viruses, they attack the machine itself rather than individual files.

Worms sit in your working memory, or RAM, Nachenberg said.

OK, so we've talked about how the viruses get into a computer. How do they cause so much damage once they're there?

Let's say you've done a classic virus, one that replicates and attacks various files on your computer. Let's go back to the example of the virus that initially infects your Microsoft Word program.

Well, it might ever cause that program to crash, Nachenberg said. It also may cause damage to your computer as it looks for new targets to infect.

This process of infecting targets and looking for new ones could ever use up your computer's ability to function, he said.

Often the destruction a virus causes is pegged to a certain event or date and time, called a trigger. For instance, a virus could be programmed to lay dormant until January 28. When that date rolls around, though, it may be programmed to do something as innocent but annoying as splash popups on your screen, or something as severe as reformat your computer's hard Drive, Nachenberg said.

There are other potential reasons, though, for a virus to cause your computer to be acting slow or in weird ways. And that leads us to a new segment – the reason virus writers would want to waste their time creating viruses in the first place.

The majority of viruses are still written by teenagers looking for some notoriety, Nachenberg said. But a growing segment of the virus-writing population has other intentions in mind.

For these other intentions, we first need to explain the "backdoor" concept.

The sole purpose of some viruses is to create a vulnerability in your computer. Once it creates this hole of texts, or backdoor, it signals home to mama or dada virus writer (kind of like in ET). Once the virus writer receives the signal, they can use and abuse your computer to their own likings.

Trojans are sometimes used to open backdoors. In fact that is usually their sole purpose, Kuo said.

Trojans are pieces of code you might download onto your computer, say, from a newsgroup. As in the Trojan War they are named after, they are usually disguised as innocuous pieces of code. But Trojans are not considered viruses because they do not replicate.

Now back to the real viruses. Let's say we have Joe Shmo virus writer. He sends out a virus that ends up infecting a thousand machines. But he does not want the feds on his case. So he instructs the viruses on the various machines to send their signals, not of course to his computer, but to a place that can not be traced. Hotmail email happens to be an example of one such place, Kuo said.

OK, so the virus writers now control these computers. What will they use them for?

One use is to send spam. Once that backdoor is open, they bounce spam off of those computers and send it to other machines, Nachenberg said.

That's right. Some spam you have in your email right now may have been originally sent to other innocent computers before it came to yours so that it could remain in disguise. If the permissions could track down the original senders of spam, they could crack down on spam itself. Spam senders do not want that.

Ever heard of phishing emails? Those are the ones that purport to be from your internet service provider or bank. They typically request some information from you, like your credit card number. The problem is, they're NOT from your internet service provider or your bank. They're from evil people after your credit card number! Well, these emails are often sent the same way spam is sent, by sending them through innocent computers.

Of course makers of anti-virus software use a variety of methods to combat the onslaught of viruses. Norton, for instance, uses signature scanning, Nachenberg said.

Signature scanning is similar to the process of looking for DNA fingerprints, he said. Norton examines programming code to find what viruses are made of. It adds those bad instructions it finds to its large database of other bad code. Then it uses this vast database to seek out and match the code in it with similar code in your computer. When it finds such … Selengkapnya

The Importance of Video and Computer Games

It was only in the 1970 when video games started becoming a tool for entertainment and fun. Ever since, the industry of video and computer games has not looked back. The entertainment industry saw video games increase at a galloping speed in the next few decades. In the world of technology and innovation, computer games have played an important role.

They are constantly developing new strategies, techniques such that the games become increasingly appealing and exciting. Interestingly video games can be played on a hand device, mobile phones, dedicated consoles to gaming, and computers among various other options. The interactiveness of the video games is one which increases the popularity and growth of the industry.

There are many different types of companies which makes computer games. Usually most of the company’s indulge in specializing in a certain category of games. Thus each of these companies usually addresses the needs of a certain and specified age group. The variety of video games which are present on date is in fact fascinating and an accomplishment. It surely deserves mention when we talk of this booming industry. Games include adventure games, action games, educational and knowledge games, simulations or role playing games, practice games, math games, logical games, and strategy and management games among other types.

On the other hand, there is a huge investment of multimillion dollars which is essential for the designing and development of these video games. However, still the market is one which has exponential growth and is still booming.

Various experts and specialists have undertaken research in this domain. They have come to the conclusion that these games are of extreme importance since they are beneficial in the following ways:

· Increase the player’s skill and imagination level

· Moreover one becomes quicker and the speed of reaction is unimaginable

· They teach children and adolescents some basic skills in an enjoyable fashion

· A child or even an adult acquires a very complex skill with the help of computer games

· With the help of computer simulations educational institutions support vocational and multi disciplinary learning

· Interestingly research has proven that computer games have been an exemplary tool to solve problems like confining spaces, heights and phobia.

· Moreover, language and learning disabilities have also been cured with the use of computer games.

Essentially the underlying factor is that the players should not get addicted to the video games. In that case the benefits would work to the optimal level. Moreover, the innocent children should not be misled to acts of aggression and violence as many of the video games depict. Parents need to pay tremendous attention that a video game should not affect their children’s behavior and thinking in any adverse manner.

Buying a Computer Processor – Intel Vs AMD

Computer processors or central processing units (CPUs) are what execute programs on computers. A powerful CPU can get more things done than a slower processor. There are two leading CPU manufacturers in today’s computer market: AMD and Intel. Both are pretty popular with a large following so it is a difficult decision to prefer one over the other. Some factors that are helpful to consider when comparing the two large brands are price, performance, life span, and overclocking potential.

* Price

Price differences between Intel and AMD are constantly fluctuating so this can only be a reliable factor to consider if you are actively following computer trends and developments. Every time a new CPU technology is discovered and introduced by either Intel or AMD, the prices of the previous generation of their processors go down. Price battles between Intel and AMD are as much technology wars on who gets to develop a better and improved CPU first.

* Performance

CPU performance largely depends on the generation of the processor. There was a time when AMD ruled the PC gaming niche and offered more value for the dollar. Ever since Intel released the Core 2 Duo processor, however, the company has been offering faster and more stable processors than AMD at very affordable rates. Intel is currently king when it comes to high-performance CPUs, especially with its newest technology: the Quad Core technology. AMD still offers high-performance CPUs but they are usually more expensive than their Intel counterparts. This could change in the near future.

* Life Span

AMD processors usually build up a lot of heat when performing intensive user applications like games and multiple graphics software. Oftentimes, standard cooling features are not enough to protect AMD processors from damage due to overheating. Intel’s Core 2 Duo line of CPUs, on the other hand, show remarkable tolerance to heat even with a standard heat sink and fan. Nonetheless, if overheated, processors from both AMD and Intel can be damaged beyond repair. The life span of a CPU is not really such a big issue since the average computer user generally upgrades his or her computer every three or so years.

* Overclocking Potential

Only hardcore gamers and heavy multimedia users can relate with CPU overclocking. Overclocking involves running the CPU at speeds greater than its specifications. For example, it is possible to overclock Intel’s E6600 from 2.4GHz to 3.2GHz. That is a whopping speed increment of 800MHz! Generally speaking, overclocking a CPU can increase overall system performance. For now, many Intel processors have greater overclocking potential than AMD processors.

As mentioned before, you have to keep up with the latest updates from Intel and AMD to get the best processor in the market. The moment either CPU manufacturers release a new product, you can expect a big drop in the prices of the displaced line of CPUs.

The Birth of Internet Crime

The birth of the internet has transformed the world as we know it. It has clearly grown to astronomic proportions since it became a household name in the mid 1990’s. If you were born before 1980, you have watched the world change from using rotary telephones to iPhones. These days nearly everything can be controlled by the touch of a button.

Bills can be paid online, movie tickets can be purchased online, you can talk to your loved ones online, and you can take a complete college course – without having to step foot on campus. The possibilities of the internet are endless – and technology is changing more rapidly than we can learn to understand it.

Today, teens and individuals in their twenties are grasping and exploiting computer technology like never before. Children are already known for their marked ability to learn and assimilate information at a very young age – absorbing and utilizing the internet and computer systems are no different than learning how to build a tree fort. For some families, their 13-year-old can build an entire computer system as his father built a model car the generation before.

With the advent of the internet, came an entirely new way to commit crimes. The terms internet crime, cybercrime and computer crime are used interchangeably. Simply put, internet crime or cybercrime is a form of crime where the internet or computers are used as a medium to commit crime.

Internet crimes are vast and expansive and can include anything from downloading illegal music files to stealing someone’s identity. Cybercrime can also include stealing millions of dollars from online bank accounts to distribution child pornography. One of the most common forms of internet crimes involves identity theft which is commonly done through phishing and pharming. These methods set up fake websites (that appear legitimate) to lure unsuspecting victims. People are asked to give out personal information such as name, address, phone numbers and bank accounts. Criminals then take this information and “steal” the person’s identity.

Internet crimes are not limited to targeting the consumer; cybercrimes have gone so far as to take on global proportions. Cybercrimes can also encompass criminal activities such as espionage, financial theft, and sabotage. In May 2010, the Pentagon established the new U.S. Cyber Command, which is headed by the director of the National Security Agency (NSA), to defend American military networks. It also serves to attack the computer systems of other countries.

Due to the fact that criminal activities have spread at a rate that law enforcement has had difficulty keeping up, entire task forces have been developed to crack down on internet and cybercrimes. There is a method called electronic discovery, or e-discovery, which is a type of cyber forensics. Electronic discovery is a process employed by law enforcement where they can obtain, secure, search and process any electronic data for use as evidence in a legal investigation. Electronic discovery can involve just a single computer or it can incorporate an entire computer network.

When you are facing allegations for internet or cybercrimes, it is essential that you seek the advice of a highly skilled attorney who you can trust. When your future is at stake – you need somebody who is familiar with both computer technology and the criminal justice system. You are urged to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can help you learn more about what steps you can take to protect your legal rights and your future.
