B - Battery Usage Tips When on The Move

So we are on the move with our Laptops and other portables this season as always and you find that your battery power drains at a ridiculous rate.

Well, here are a few tips to help make that Laptop last longer while you are still on the move.

Lets get started...

1. Turn off Wi-Fi and BlueTooth - Wi-Fi and Buetooth are one of the major battery drainers we have there so its best to turn them off when you dont need them on the go. Most laptops have shortcut keys to instantly disable wireless networking.

2. Don't play computer games, music or DVD movies - I think this is a pretty obvious one. Multimedia activities drain laptop batteries.

3. Disconnect all external device like PC Card modems, Firewire, USB devices and optical drives. Use the notebook touchpad instead of an external mouse.

4. Adjust your screen brightness - Dimming your display saves battery power.

5. Tweak Windows Power Options - Choose a Laptop power scheme that turns off the notebook monitor and hard disk after 10 minutes of inactivity.

6. Decrease or mute the Laptop Speaker Volume.

7. Turn off all scheduled tasks.

8. Turn off Auto-save features in Microsoft Office and other applications.

9. If your PC has a built-in wireless card, turn it off or disable it when not in use.

10. Programs that are run from a CD or DVD can be copied to and run from the hard drive, which typically consumes less power than an optical drive.

I hope this tips help us as we spend more time on the road.

Getting Started: Html, CSS, and PHP

Hello there, before we get started with development tutorials, i would like to clarify a few things...

I would like to assume we are all beginners that have decided to learn web development from the very basics... Here is a clarification of the normal misconceptions that comes up in the minds of beginner developers...

What is the difference between the Html and CSS?, Why do i need CSS? How do i go about learning these languages?

Here is a very basic breakdown of answers to these questions... as simple as it gets.... Using the human body as a model... lets see how they work... :-)

- Basically, Html, Hypertext Markup Language is more like a tool that allows its user to present or showcase desired data which might be text, images, forms, etc as the case may be. It also can be used to define the structure of a webpage... Relating this to our human body model, lets see Html as the human skeleton.

- CSS on the other hand, Cascading Stylesheets is like a tool that helps the user add features to the human skeleton.. your skin and its complexion, position and size of your fingers etc. It helps you style your webpages more than what a basic knowledge of Html can afford!

- Now onto PHP, Lets call this, the brain... Php serves as the brain of your webpage as it processes information and relates it back to the body framework for it to carry out its actions... Php is a programming language that can determine if your webpage is static or dynamic.

I hope we get the differences now.. Would love to hear what you think in the comments below... Thanks... and have fun coding...

Development: Getting Started

Hey guys, its midnight here, but i would just like us to get started learning web development as we move on here... We'll be focusing more on Html (Hypertext Markup Language), Cascading Stylesheets (CSS) and Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP).

Unfortunately, we wont be going too indepth in the basics of these languages, which is why there will be download links to good books on the internet... I'll be focusing more on implementation tutorials, building web pages and giving web design tips as they come... Here are a couple of google searches to good books... Lets get started

Have fun... and remember... Code is Poetry
