  • Zen Cart

    Zen Cart


    Zen Cart truly is the art of e-commerce; free, user-friendly, open source shopping cart software. The ecommerce web site design program is being developed by a group of like-minded shop owners, programmers, designers, and consultants that think ecommerce web design could be and should be done differently.

    Some shopping cart solutions seem to be complicated programming exercises instead of responding to users needs, Zen Cart puts the merchants and shoppers requirements first. Similarly, other shopping cart software programs are nearly impossible to install and use without an IT degree, Zen Cart can be installed and set-up by anyone with the most basic web site building and computer skills.

    There are hundreds of shopping cart programs available, but none come close to offering the level of options, features and support available with Zen Cart. Even the commercial programs have a hard time competing.

Glossary

  • ISP

    ISP


    An Internet service provider (abbr. ISP, also called Internet access provider or IAP) is a business or organization that provides to consumers access to the Internet and related services.

    In the past, most ISPs were run by the phone companies. Now, ISPs can be started by just about any individual or group with sufficient money and expertise. In addition to Internet access via various technologies such as dial-up and DSL, they may provide a combination of services including Internet transit, domain name registration and hosting, web hosting, and colocation.

  • SWF (Flash Animations)

    SWF (Flash Animations)


    SWF is a proprietary vector graphics file format produced by the Flash software from Adobe (formerly Macromedia). Intended to be small enough for publication on the web, SWF files can contain animations or applets of varying degrees of interactivity and function. SWF is also sometimes used for creating animated display graphics and menus for DVD movies, and television commercials.

  • BMP (Bit Mapped)

    BMP (Bit Mapped)


    The BMP (bit mapped) format is used internally in the Microsoft Windows operating system to handle graphics images. These files are typically not compressed resulting in large files.

    The main advantage of BMP files is their wide acceptance, simplicity, and use in Windows programs. However, they may pose problems for users of other operating systems. Commonly, BMP files are used for Microsoft's Paint program. Since most BMP files are uncompressed, and BMP's RLE compression has serious limits[citation needed], the large size of BMP files makes them unsuitable for file transfer. However, Bit Map images are suitable for background images and wallpapers. This is especially true for screen shots. In addition, images from scanners are usually stored in BMP files.

    *** The above information is for reference only, Please seek independent technical advice if found necessary.

  • TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)

    TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)


    Tagged Image File Format (abbreviated TIFF) is a file format for mainly storing images, including photographs and line art. Originally created by the company Aldus, jointly with Microsoft, for use with PostScript printing, TIFF is a popular format for high color depth images, along with JPEG and PNG.

    TIFF format is widely supported by image-manipulation applications such as Photoshop by Adobe, GIMP, Ulead PhotoImpact, and Photo-Paint as well as Paint Shop Pro by Corel, by desktop publishing and page layout applications, such as QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign, and by scanning, faxing, word processing, optical character recognition, and other applications.

    TIFF was chosen as the native format for raster graphics in the NeXTstep operating system, and this TIFF support carried over into Mac OS X. Adobe Systems, which acquired the PageMaker publishing program from Aldus, now controls the TIFF specification, although it has not had a major update since 1992 (several technical notes have been published with minor extensions to the format).

  • Greylisting

    Greylisting


    Greylisting
    Greylisting reduces the amount of unsolicited e-mail (SPAM) delivered to e-mail addresses by capitalizing on spammers’ reluctance to configure their mail servers properly.

    Since most spammers do not retry sending email, the greylisting initially refuses all mail from unknown sources and accepts them on a later retry. This technology can cut spam as much as 95% of spam.

  • 33 Million Domains Registered in 2007

    33 Million Domains Registered in 2007


    Report released by VeriSign, shows that over 33 Million domain names were registered in 2007, bringing the total up to 153million domains.

    Below is a summary of the report:

    In the last quarter of 2007, the base of domain name registrations grew 27 percent over the fourth quarter of 2006 and five percent over the third quarter of 2007… The total base of Country Code Top Level Domain Names (ccTLDs) was 58 million, a 33 percent increase year over year and a six percent increase quarter over quarter. Across all of the gTLDs and ccTLDs, .com has the highest base followed by .de (Germany), .net and .cn (China). The fifth spot is shared by .uk (United Kingdom) and .org. with approximately the same size base of domain name registrations.

    This release also states that the adoption of IPv6 has been relatively slow in the United States as compared to Asia and Europe. More than 100 domain name registries (i.e. top-level domain managers) support IPv6 for name servers and DNS queries including VeriSign who has supported IPv6 for .com and .net since 2002. The root name servers were enabled for IPv6 in February 2008 with the inclusion of IPv6 addresses for six of the thirteen root servers, including the A and J root servers operated by VeriSign.

  • If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec

    If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec


    Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes estimates that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated, but said some pirates end up becoming paying customers.

    By Paul McDougall
    InformationWeek
    12, 2007 03:00

    If you're going to be a software counterfeiter, then please copy and illegally use Microsoft products.

    The above plea isn't from a posting on a hacker forum. Rather, it's how Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes feels about software counterfeiters. "If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else," Raikes said.

    The remarks might seem surprising, coming from a senior executive at a software company that spends millions each year fighting software piracy and developing copyright protection technologies.

    But Raikes, speaking last week at the Morgan Stanley Technology conference in San Francisco, said a certain amount of software piracy actually helps Microsoft because it can lead to purchases by individuals who otherwise might never have been exposed to the company's products.

    "We understand that in the long run the fundamental asset is the installed base of people who are using our products," Raikes said. "What you hope to do over time is convert them to licensing the software."

    Raikes said Microsoft isn't about to abandon efforts to track down those who illegally copy and use its products. However, he said Microsoft has to balance that approach with the recognition that users of purloined software could one day become legitimate customers.

    "You want to push towards getting legal licensing, but you don't want to push so hard that you lose the asset that's most fundamental in the business," said Raikes, who estimated that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated.

    Raikes said Microsoft is developing so-called "pay-as-you-go" software offerings with pricing schemes similar to those used by cell phone companies for emerging markets as a way of encouraging low-income individuals to use the company's products legally.

  • 如何利用異地備份隬補防毒軟件的不足

    如何利用異地備份隬補防毒軟件的不足


    從世衛在2009年4月24號發出的第一個人類豬流感個案開始,至今已有76個國家和超過3萬感染個案而豬流感病毒變種的問題也成為了全球關注的話題。其實在電腦的世界,惡性攻擊病毒每天在不斷的增加、更新和改變,而企業往往就因為病毒入侵而造成數據丟失和摧毀的受害者。如何防範數據丟失帶來的災難性影響,是企業I.T.部門經常要面對的挑戰。

    企業單靠病毒掃描軟件並不足夠

    根據美國FBI 2005的研究指出,約84%的公司會受到惡性病毒的攻擊。另外,美國網絡安全協會(Cyber Secure Institute) 的報告指出,企業為了清除各項病毒的花費高達90億美元!無論您為電腦做再好的隔離措施,例如擁有最新的防病毒軟件和頻密的病毒掃描,病毒也可以找到辦法入侵電腦系統然後摧毀公司重要的檔案,例如客戶清單、合約和訂單等等。公司因為數據丟失和內部電腦系統故障影響而到商譽也絕非金錢能隬補。所以,企業要防範數據丟失帶來的災難性影響,單靠病毒掃描軟件並不足夠。

    設立災難性回復方案才能治本

    其實要解決以上問題就要從根本著手,第一步就是要為企業電腦系統設立有效和快速的災難復原方案 (Disaster Recovery Solution),而當中最重要的一環便是為每台電腦作鏡像備份(Image Backup),這樣,當遇到病毒入侵造成數據丟失,企業便可快速地把事先備份好電腦鏡像直接恢復到電腦上,把受到感染或是有故障的電腦復原到正常狀態,確保企業持續運作,儲存於電腦內的業務數據亦能得以保存。

    有資深企業備份經驗的Ahsay 銷售部經理候健生指出:「如何為企業設立有效和快速的災難復原方案是一個很大的課題,大小企業都需要正視。但對中小企來說,由於資源所限,加上公司內未必有專門負責I.T.方面的人員,所以很多中小企都未有實行。其實坊間都有不少能夠提供鏡像備份(Image Backup)的備份軟件,可以滿足基本備份需要。但這些軟件只能夠作本地備份,一旦公司的電腦受到病毒侵襲,用作儲存備份的電腦或伺服器亦可能已經中毒,導致已備份的鏡像無法還原而不能做到災難復原。所以企業應選擇具備異地鏡像備份的備份軟件,才能確保災難復原能發揮功效,因為就算本地公司內所有電腦和伺服器都已經中毒,儲存於異地的鏡像備份數據亦不會受到感染,企業便可快速地把電腦鏡像直接從異地恢復到電腦上,達至災難復原的目的。而Ahsay Backup Software 是市場上少數可以做到異地鏡像備份的企業備份方案。」
