  • 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

  • Font

    Font


    In typography, a typeface is a coordinated set of glyphs designed with stylistic unity. A typeface usually comprises an alphabet of letters, numerals, and punctuation marks; it may also include ideograms and symbols, or consist entirely of them, for example, mathematical or map-making symbols. The term typeface is often conflated with font, a term which, historically, had a number of distinct meanings before the advent of desktop publishing; these terms are now effectively synonymous when discussing digital typography. A helpful and still valid distinction between font and typeface is a font's status as a discrete commodity with legal restrictions, while typeface designates a visual appearance or style not immediately reducible to any one foundry's production or proprietary control.

    The art and craft of designing typefaces is called type design. Designers of typefaces are called type designers, and often typographers. In digital typography, type designers are also known as font developers or font designers.

    The size of typefaces and fonts is traditionally measured in points; point has been defined differently at different times, but now the most popular is the Desktop Publishing Point. Font size is also commonly measured in millimeters (mm) and inches.

    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.

    How do I access my webmail (Check emails using a browser)?


    You can read your mail and compose new messages even if you are far from your home or office computer. To do this, you first need to allow access to the Horde Webmail interface that is integrated with your control panel. Then you can work with your mail from any computer with Internet connection and Web browser installed, or a WAP-enabled cellular phone or a handheld computer (PDA).
    To login to your webmail use the following url:

    http://webmail.yourdomain.com

    *where yourdomain.com is your domain name.

    Login details are your email address and password you setup in your control panel.
    This is the perfect Webmail program, which comes with all our web hosting plans, so you can access your emails anywhere in the world.

  • 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。」

    關於Ahsay

    Ahsay Systems Corporation (亞勢系統有限公司) 建基於香港,目前在世界各地已擁有超過2, 900個服務合作夥伴和經銷商,並有超過90萬用戶安裝了Ahsay Backup Software備份軟件。

  • 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.

  • 微軟證實Hotmail個人資料遭竊取

    微軟證實Hotmail個人資料遭竊取


    根據BBC(英國廣播公司)報導,微軟公司的Windows Live Hotmail遭到網絡黑客入侵,超過萬個hotmail客戶資料遭到竊取,這些資料多數來自歐洲,微軟並證實遭竊取的密碼都是正確的。

    科技網誌neowin.net說,黑客除了盜取帳號密碼之外,又把盜取到的資料全數公布到網路上,超過上萬個hotmail帳戶的細節,2009年10月1日被貼上一個讓人分享密碼的網站pastebin.com。

    Neowin聲稱這些帳戶可能是被黑或是利用網路釣魚搜集而來。網路釣魚攻擊者利用發送釣魚郵件給受害者,受害者點選後,會被導向釣魚網頁,就會洩漏了個人的機密資訊給予攻擊者,如個人的信用卡號碼、密碼、帳號等。

    微軟目前表示,他們已經知悉此事,並正在積極了解及處理中。這件事透露出網路資訊安全的疑慮,若果個人資料遭到竊取,可能會有更多後續麻煩的事端。
