Server Cabinets

One of the most frequently encountered problems in rack mounting, is that of incompatible rail kits not fitting into Third Party cabinets.

As the mounting depth for OEM rails vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and the server cabinet may be located in a tight or confined space, it is becoming more and more important to make the correct decision and chose the right product that will protect your valuable equipment.

To make sure that all the correct criteria are met, a cabinet that can accommodate a variety of manufacturers equipment or house any of the larger server units, must be 600mm wide and 1000mm deep, which will give enough depth from front to back.

This size will also provide the room to fit the full rail kit and also the added advantage of allowing for a neat, uncluttered cable management assembly.

Equipment installation should also be made easier by having … Read the rest

Copier Lease Or Purchase

Unless you will be needing multiple copies of documents everyday, generally, the better and more economical choice is a copier lease. Here are some of the reasons why:

  • Maintenance and repair of your own copier machine could turn out to be costlier and more time-consuming than you think. If you have a copier lease, regular maintenance will be provided for you and if you need the machine to be fixed, all you have to do is call the vendor and they will send a repair guy to you right away.
  • In the same way, when a part of your copier needs to be replaced, you may have to go to several stores before you find the exact part that you need…and then you have to install it yourself. If you have a copier lease, they will be the ones to look for a high-quality but low-cost copier part. True, you

Wireless Cards

Wireless

Wireless Internet access is one form of Broadband, high speed, Internet access that utilizes radio frequencies instead of phone or cable lines. Wireless cards in managed mode will join a network created by a master, and will automatically change their channel to match it. Wireless cards from many manufacturers are widely available. Wireless cards are also available for purchase through us at current industry prices. Wireless cards that are purchased by our customers through other retailers can also be used; however, compatibility is not guaranteed.

Card

Cards with Marvell chipsets should be avoided at this time. For starters, a dual-band card takes up only one slot. Each card is supplied with a client that provides improved configuration options when compared with Windows XP’s default wireless setup. The real differentiators are the client utility’s features, as well as the range and throughput of the network card in each mode.

Electronic Repair

Let me ask you some questions, would you buy a new LCD TV set if your LCD TV have a sound problem? Would you buy a new Monitor if there is a color problem? Would you buy a new LaserJet printer just because of paper jam? Or would you buy a new dot-matrix printer just because of alignment out? If you talks about the cheaper range of equipment such as a VCD or even a DVD (none branded), yes the users might just throw it off to the rubbish bin and get a new unit with a one year warranty-free of troubles and hassle sending the machine to a repair shop. If the equipment cost several hundreds or thousands of dollars, definitely the users have to send it for repair unless the users are very rich. Base on the current economic situation, many users are willing to send their machine … Read the rest

Prototyping Solution

In the case of products that need to be manufactured, the problems are still tied to costs, productivity and efficiency. In short, when it comes to producing products, the development process needs to be done in the shortest amount of time and money with the assurance of increasing the business’ bottom line.

However, the process of development can be very tedious. Many prototypes can be made to refine a product before it is even produced and launched. Creating prototypes is a problem in itself because of the amount of effort and time it can potentially consume. This is why the solution to this problem was to utilize computer aided designs or CAD, where one can create the design using virtual 3D models on screen to test a product.

This though, obviously has its limitations and the solution to that is a machine that manufactures prototypes. In fact, there are many … Read the rest

CD Duplicator

You can even go a step further and distribute your music to all your friends, your neighbors, your relatives, or even your entire school–distributing CDs of your music at a very minimal cost, just with the use of CD duplicators.

So, okay, the initial cost of CD duplicators is not that minimal, compared to, say, a computer CD burner; in fact, it’s a lot more costly. So why bother when you can copy as much CDs as you want with a burner? Creating two to three CD copies with CD burners is fine, but if you need to copy by the hundreds, you can find it frustrating, tedious, and a waste of time. CD duplicators are designed to create multiple CD copies from a single source or master CD. They are stand-alone devices that do not need a computer to operate. They operate at very high speeds, reproducing CDs up … Read the rest

Fix a Slow Computer

Do want to fix a slow computer? If these computer crashes happen to you on a regular basis you know how frustrating they ca be. In addition they can cost you vital time and money. If you’ve ever lost important work or research, you know that feeling all too well. If you’ve resorted to saving your work constantly, or backing up your computer hourly instead of daily or weekly in order to prevent lost data or wasted hours, you’re probably wondering what the cause of your troubles are. The natural reaction of many when faced with a slow computer or Windows system crashes is to curse the boys of Redmond, or Bill Gates himself, and dutifully start over again.

Most of these problems actually have a common cause. Weather you’re having problems with a computer that’s running much slower than it did when it was new, or going off into … Read the rest

Keep Printer Healthy

  • Use Your Printer: The number one problem (as reported to us) is poor print output… missing colors, lines in the print, etc. Using your printer on a regular basis, at least 2-3 times per week, will keep the ink flowing through the nozzles. Each ink nozzle opening is about half the size of a human hair and there are hundreds of them on the average print head! If you don’t print often, you can keep your printer nozzles open and reduce the incidence of clogging. Here’s how:

Simply place a “sticky note” on your computer monitor to remind you to print something in both black and color at least TWO TIMES a week. For example, use a colorful web page to print. This will use MUCH LESS ink than having to run multiple print head cleaning cycles through the printer utility. What a waste that is!

Growth of Hard Disk

Hard disk drives store their sequence of data bits in linear tracks, which follow around a magnetic disk in concentric circles. In order to fit more data over a smaller area, the gaps between the data tracks must reduce, as well as the spacing between the bits. These dimension quantities are measured in bits per inch (in a circumference-wise direction), and tracks per inch (in a radius-wise direction). These get smaller as the technology gets better; also, one must take into account the tiny areas or gaps between tracks that are there to compensate for a slightly misaligned reader head, so it doesn’t read the neighboring tracks.

The method of measuring the total quantity of data storable over a surface area is quantity per square inch, these days, gigabytes per square inch. This measurement is a combination of your bits per inch and tracks per inch. It is known as … Read the rest
