Using the Remote Desktop feature, you can connect your home computer (host) from any other remote computer (client) and can access all computer resources (installed programs, data and any network resources). You can run any computer application on the remote computer as you were running actually sitting in front of home computer.
Follow the given steps to configure your computer to connect remote computer:
To use this feature, you will need to be logged into your computer with administrative rights.
To perform this task, first make sure your both computers are connected to the internet.
First you have to configure the host computer that allows the users to connect it remotely. On the host computer, Open Control Panel, and select Classic Menu View, Double Click System Icon, Select Remote Tab, Tick Remote Desktop Option

One of the best things to do with an old PC? Donate it to your local charity. There are many, many families out there who do not have the luxury of owning even a basic computer system. Do your part to help them get into the world of computers.
One important note about donating computers - make sure you clear out and delete any personal information on the drive. Simple deletion is not sufficient - you will need a powerful data erasing tool like Active@ KillDisk - Hard Drive Eraser.
Trade It In
There are many computer dealers (e.g. HP) which offer trade-in promotions on computers and peripherals. Before you buy a new PC, see if the retailer can offer you any trade-in discounts. As long as your old computer is in decent condition, it can fetch some money.
'Decent condition' usually refers to any Pentium-class notebook or desktop with a hard drive, monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Another option is to sell the computer on eBay or an equivalent auction site. eBay is one huge clearing house where people sell all sorts of old stuff - computers is but one such category of goods. You can also organize a quick garage sale and see if any of your friends or neighbors want the computer.
Set Up A Server
If you've been meaning to learn about computers and servers, you can use the old PC as a test system. At home, I use an old PC as a file server for storing and sharing data sometimes. Alternatively, you also tear apart the computer and see what its innards are like (which is what I used to do).
Salvage Some Parts
Not the whole of your old PC needs to be thrown away. You can usually salvage parts to be used in a new PC, especially if you intend to build one yourself. Things like the monitor, sound card, hard drive, LAN cards, CD and DVD drives and sometimes even computer memory can be re-used.
For web designers, having successful client projects leads to happy clients, more referrals, a proven track record, and valuable experience and knowledge that can be used in future projects. But there is a lot that goes into making a project a success, and simply completing the design on time is not enough. In this article we’ll take a look at 10 things you can do to make your projects more successful.
1. Truly Get to Know the Client and Their Customers/Visitors
In order to create a website that maximizes its potential for your client, you’ll first have to get a clear understanding of the client, how they do business, how they brand themselves, and you’ll also need to become familiar with their target market. Depending on your familiarity with the client and their industry, this may require a considerable amount of time and effort. The better understanding you have, the more likely you will be to create a site that meets the needs of the client and their users.
A common mistake, especially for new designers, is to jump right into the design process without dedicating time to getting familiar with the client. This often leads to a site that may look good on the surface, but doesn’t effectively fit the needs and personality of the client.
Different designers have their own methods for getting to know their clients, so do whatever works best for you. Some designers have a standard intake questionare or form that they have clients fill out to get information about their business and their customers. Others meet with clients, discuss and observe. Whatever your process, be sure that you prioritize the need to get to know your clients, and account for this in your estimates and scheduling of projects.
2. Have a Clear Set of Goals for the Project
Some clients will want a website just because it is the thing to do, but they don’t really know what they specifically hope to get out of having a website. Others will want to re-design their existing site because it is outdated or because they don’t like the look anymore, but they may not know exactly what they want to improve about the website. Having goals for the project will help to get a clear determination of what will make the project a success, and it will help to keep the project focused on what is most important.
Take the time to talk to clients about what is most important to them, and together you can establish a few specific goals for the project. It’s best to focus on a small number of things rather than having too many goals and getting distracted by things that are not as important. This process will assist you by getting your clients to think and communicate with you about the most important reasons for going through with the project, and it will give you some methods for measuring the project to gauge its success.
3. Clearly Define the Scope of the Project

Over the past several years, there has been a big divide between designers: those who work in print distribution and those in digital distribution. The irony is that, despite the disputes, name-calling and flat-out arguments between the two camps, their techniques and methods are far more common than many believe. Both sides of this communications field are heavily influenced by each other. Grid systems and typography now play a strong role in Web-based design, and usability and user experience play a big part in developing print material.
Adobe InDesign is the primary application of print designers for laying out multiple pages and assembling print documents. This article gives you, the Web-based developer, a look at some of the tools in InDesign that translate directly into what you currently use. We’ll look at how the terminology in the two fields compare and how to apply your expertise to this other industry.
Jumping Right In
As with any Web development project, organizing from the start ensures that you will have minimal problems with the files later on. Similar to many website root folders, InDesign gives you a main document folder and a resources folder:
Above on the left is my folder structure for InDesign, and on the right the folder structure for my website. They are so similar that, if not for the different file extensions (.indd and .html), they would be practically the same.
Setting Up the Document
Setting up an InDesign document is similar to setting up a mobile website. You specify the height, width and purpose of the document. For print-based items, set the "Intent” to "Print.” If you will be using the file for an eBook or digital publication, then specify "Web.” If you will be using the document for both, then specify "Print” to ensure that the colors are maintained properly.
The margins in InDesign are guidelines that are positioned on the page and are not like Web margins that affect objects on the page.
Your Main Tools
If you’re familiar with Photoshop and Illustrator, then you are used to finding the main group of tools on the left side of the workspace, at least by default. InDesign is the same. The way you interact with and build objects on the page, though, works slightly different than Adobe’s other design software. Containers are needed in order to place images, vector objects and textual content on the page.
You can import vector objects directly into the document, but you will usually be importing files into content boxes that you position in the layout. This should come easily to you because Web design operates on the same principle: creating DOMs that contain images or text, and then positioning them in the layout. The one major difference is that, while objects are positioned in a Web document relative to their structure (unless otherwise styled), objects on an InDesign layout are always given an x and y position based on the overall page (by default, the top-left corner, similar to absolute positioning).
Because we are working with a vector- and object-based layout, one of the main tools you will use for the majority of your editing is the Selection tool , which gives you control of position and size. It also is used to select an object in order to change its properties. This is quite different from Photoshop, in which you edit individual layers. To change the color of an object, you need to select it first using the Selection tool, and then adjust it using one of the various ways to change color.
These content boxes can be created with various tools. The Type tool enables you to create a box for text. The Rectangle Frame tool creates a box to add an image or linked resource. The Rectangle tool is not assigned to any particular kind of content. These three frame types allow you to build the layout any way you want.
In spite of both the Rectangle and Rectangle Frame tools, many designers who were trained on older software use only the Frame tool. The one difference between them is that the Frame tool shows a placeholder (an x). The Rectangle tool merely allows for a cleaner workspace but does not affect the final output.

PHP is one of the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages that exist today. With over 20 million indexed domains using PHP, including major websites like Facebook, Digg and WordPress, there are good reasons why many Web developers prefer it to other server-side scripting languages, such as Python and Ruby.
PHP is faster (updated), and it is the most used scripting language in practice; it has detailed documentation, a huge community, numerous ready-to-use scripts and well-supported frameworks; and most importantly, it’s much easier to get started with PHP than with other scripting languages (Python, for example). That’s why it makes perfect sense to provide the huge community of PHP developers with an overview of useful tools and resources that can make their development process easier and more effective.
This post presents 50 useful PHP tools that can significantly improve your programming workflow. Among other things, you’ll find a plethora of libraries and classes that aid in debugging, testing, profiling and code-authoring in PHP.

Intel officials say vendors are beginning to use Atom processors to power tablets not only because the chips can run Windows 7, but also because they allow the devices to run multiple OSes, providing an advantage over rival ARM Holdings.
At Taipei's Computex trade show, Intel has been showing off tablets running one of its newest Atom processors, Oak Trail. The tablets are capable of running Windows 7, Android and Intel's own MeeGo mobile OS. Several tablets at the trade show have been installed with multiple OSes.
ViewSonic unveiled a tablet called the ViewPad 10Pro, which can run both Android and Windows 7 simultaneously, with the user allowed to switch between them with a click of an icon. A tablet by Australian company Evolve III incorporates Windows 7, Android and MeeGo, allowing users to choose an OS when the device boots up.
"Because Intel architecture runs each one of these environments, we are now seeing innovation to run all of these environments on a single device," said Doug Fisher, the general manager of Intel's' system software division.
Intel officials detailed the company's tablet and notebook strategy at Computex on Wednesday. Intel has been working to develop low-power chips suitable to run on tablets. Intel has said that 35 tablets using the new Oak Trail tablet would be available in May.
Currently, most of the tablets on the market use chips from ARM because the processors are considered more power efficient. But Windows 7 does not run on ARM chips.
One of the major objectives of Intel's Atom processor Oak Trail was to run Windows 7 on a tablet, said Doug Davis, general manager of the company's netbook and tablet group. Many users, like those in education or finance, want to see Windows 7 applications in tablet form, he said during an interview with the press. "That's where we are seeing a lot of interest in our product," he added.
But Davis also said vendors are taking notice of how Intel's Atom processor can run multiple OSes on a single device, a feature Intel believes will make their tablets more appealing to users.
Fisher said Intel is working on virtualization technologies to make switching between multiple OSes on a tablet more seamless and convenient. "You are going to see an evolution and innovation around how you run multiple operating environments," he added.
While ARM chips cannot run the current version of Windows, Microsoft intends to change that with its next version of the OS. Intel and Microsoft, however, recently provided countering views over the capabilities of the new platform. Intel said the upcoming Windows version for ARM will not be able to run applications from older versions of the OS. Microsoft has said Intel's statement is inaccurate and misleading.

It's inevitable that clients will infect workstations, PCs, and laptops with spyware and viruses.
Regardless of preventive steps, from gateway protection to automated scans to written Internet use
policies, malware threats sneak through even layered defenses. What makes the situation worse is that
many clients aren't willing to invest in standalone anti-spyware software, even though they understand
the need for minimal antivirus protection.
Some IT professionals advocate simply wiping systems and reinstalling Windows, while others suggest
that's akin to giving up and letting the bad guys win. The truth lies somewhere in between. After
making an image copy of the drive (it's always best to have a fallback option when battling malicious
infections), here are the measures I find most effective.
1: Isolate the drive
Many rootkit and Trojan threats are masters of disguise that hide from the operating system as soon as
or before Windows starts. I find that even the best antivirus and antispyware tools -- including AVG
Anti-Virus Professional, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and SuperAntiSpyware -- sometimes struggle to
remove such entrenched infections.
