Getting a Bump in Size

Posted on Posted in general

Since I reached my adult age, I’ve felt self conscious about my size. I thought about having an enlargement procedure done, but I wasn’t exactly sure how it would work out. Whatever process would be done would more than likely be painful, and there was a good chance that my insurance wouldn’t cover it. Instead, I looked for pill based solutions to my problem, and found out about Vimax. I looked at some reviews from people who tried it before and they were satisfied with the results, so I thought it would be nice to give it a shot.

I ordered some of the pills online and tried them over the course of a month. I knew that it would take a while for the results to start coming, so I tried to give myself a little patience.…

A Simple Switch Helped to Make My Skin Look Better

Posted on Posted in general

I woke up one morning and immediately felt pain from a new and very large pimple on my face. I looked at it in a mirror and was alarmed to see that it was large. Later, at work, I complained to a coworker that I had to meet a client with that swollen, over-sized zit on my face. She asked if I had tried swapping out my usual cosmetics for natural makeup instead. Confused, I asked her what the difference was. I was also careful to wash off my usual makeup products each night, so I didn’t understand what good buying something else would do for me. She explained that switching would help me to see if the not-so-good ingredients in my usual makeup was the cause for my continued breakouts.

The day that my coworker gave me the tip on switching my makeup products out for something new, I had a big client to meet. He’s the CEO of a well-known company in our area.…

Intimate Times Can Be Stress Free

Posted on Posted in general

There are many people that have a problem when it comes to getting intimate with their partner. Instead of being shy about it, it is important for people to be open and honest with the people that they are close with. Being honest is something that allows people to get closer, when they feel like they can talk about anything. My husband went to www.buyvigrxplus.co.uk so that he could get a pill that made him ready for me when I was ready to get intimate. People say that they do not want pills or anything extra for their sexual arousal or performance, and I would tell them that it is nothing to be ashamed of. People have different reasons for having erectile problems, they can range from mental conditions to medications that may inhibit a man to have an erection when he is in the mood to be intimate with his partner.

I was spending time with the doctor that treats my husband for his sexual dysfunction while my husband was using the restroom and I was talking to him about how many of my friends our age do not like to talk about the pill. The pill has helped us and our sex life has never been better. I did not want to talk about the sexual needs and desires of my husband and I with our friends because we are very private people. My husband would be so upset if he knew that I was going to speak with our friends about what we do in the bedroom, but I told him that talking about it helps validate that we are not the only ones who have a problem. The problem can be fixed and helped if you let it work, the pill has changed our life and we are now stress free.…

The Danger of Trying to Cut Up a Fallen Tree

Posted on Posted in general

We had a bad storm a few days ago. We have a wide lot that our house is on, and a tree fell over sideways. It was at the edge of our lot, and it fell across it in the back yard. From the root ball to the tip of the tree, it just fits in our yard. We called a company that does tree removal in Long Island NY to get it. It was laying on its side in the yard like a crane just set it down there. It was planted just inside the fence on the one side, and the top branches were barely touching the fence across the yard where it lay.

I tried to cut it up with a little electric chainsaw I had for trimming branches. It was no match for that big tree. I got a lot of the smaller branches off, but it rolled when I cut a thicker one. That scared me as that tree weighs several tons. I could have been killed if it rolled on top of me.…

Taking Care of Fine Lines and Wrinkle As I Age

Posted on Posted in general

As with most women my age, I am starting to see the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on my face. I have become very self-conscious about this and want to go ahead and take control of it and try to take the best care possible of my skin from here on out. There are so many products out there that claim to reverse the effects of aging and it is difficult to determine which ones actually work. A friend of mine told me about LifeCell skin care which is a revolutionary anti-aging cream that has taken skincare to a whole new level.

Not that I don’t trust my friend but I need to do a bit of research on this myself. A lot of anti-aging products are quite expensive and I really can’t afford to learn by trial and error. I’d probably go broke trying to find the right one. So I got out my laptop and started doing some research to see the authenticity of this product.…

I Have Been in Montreal for a Month

Posted on Posted in general

This is a really interesting city and strange because nearly every person that you mean can speak French and English at a functional level. In theory I can do, but in practice my French is really bad. I probably could have gotten pretty good at it if I had come here twenty five years ago when I had taken two years of it in high school. Meg came up here to see me for the weekend and wanted to order careprost in Canada, but I had absolutely no clue what this was or how you get it. It turns out that this is supposed to make your eyelashes look thicker, you put it on with the same sort of brush that you use for other types of cosmetics. It is not something that I had any idea how to obtain and in fact I had no clue that she used the stuff. I honestly do not really think all that much about eyelashes to be totally honest.…

The Secret to How Movie Stars Look Great on the Big Screen

Posted on Posted in general

If you use makeup, you know that the foundation layer is the base that everything else is built upon. You have probably seen pictures of movie stars taken when they do not have makeup on and wondered how they look so good on the screen. Well, one product used to cover up serious skin flaws is Dermacol . It is actually marketed as the primer makeup for photo and video shoots. It may sound funny to make a comparison, but the primer coat that goes on a nice shiny new car is what lets the paint on top look its best.…

The Importance of Web Database Development

Posted on Posted in internet, website

Web database development is the process of creating a website whose contents are not sitting on server files, but on columns and tables in the databases. A website that stores data in the files system is a static website; the website that is database driven is most of the time referred to as a dynamic website. More functionality is offered by a dynamic website than by a static one. Some of these functionalities include the following:

Construction site crane building Web Design 3D words.
  • shopping cart,
  • customized homepage,
  • ability to store vast amount of data about your business – services and products.
  • advanced search functionality with ability for users to filter the results in a given field, such as “date” or “price:,
  • ability for users to register for a newsletter or post their questions to forums, post comments, and update their profiles,
  • ability to integrate with corporate applications, like HR systems, CRM systems,
  • reducing site maintenance,
  • enhance web interactivity
  • ability to easily perform statistical analyses and complex queries,
  • ability to sort and retrieve data efficiently, and more.

If you are a technologically inclined person, you might be able to work on your web database development. However, if you believe you do not possess the necessary skills, you can hire a team of database developers, and there are many of them on the internet. But how can you find the team that is best for you? First of all, the company should have a strong background in website design and database development. They should be able to have the right tools and technologies and have prior experience in implementing these latest software and technologies in the development.

Besides the above requirements, the specific expertise of the programmers and engineers should also be looked into. Make sure that they have many years of experience in developing web databases. The staff of engineers and programmers must be experts. Creating a database driven website does not only need graphic artists and web designers, but a full team of skilled web programmers, web development engineers and application developers.

These experts in web database development should be closely coordinating with you so they will be able to determine the requirements and needs of your website. They should also be able to assess your existing database (if any), and identify the right solution and technologies that they should implement. So before you sign any contract with any database developer, you should have a roster of their skilled team. They should have a design conference with you to ensure that you’ll have a database driven website.

In these days of the advancing internet, database driven websites are getting popular. Users need highly dynamic and interactive web solutions, so websites should be able to address this requirement of web users. If your website is database driven, it is certain that it will always be updated and ready to provide complete information to your online visitors. Repeat visitors will be attracted to your site if it is found useful, highly …

Using Technologies Wisely To Build More Accessible Websites

Posted on Posted in website

Each website has an optimal design that fits perfectly to its thematic, requirements and visitors' type. For example, a web site offering e-cards will certainly need to catch the visitors' eyes, using images, animations and interactivity, while a site dedicated to science, teaching or investigation may not need any of those to show up their information and content .

The amount of animation or interactivity will certainly affect the accessibility of the web page given that the technologies used to provide this type of content are typically not supported by user agents or many times not designed for people with disabilities. To consider how many people you could be letting behind I will base my study on the statistics of this site (HTMLQuick.com) which is completely accessible and provides a lot of textual information.

To look at some round numbers I will say that if the content of the site would be completely based on Flash or JavaScript we would be losing from 1.77% to 4.55% of the visits due only to the lack of technologies, which could be a very large number of visitors if the site is successful. But lets take some considerations based on the most popular and problematic technologies available.

Flash

Flash is a great way to build animations and interactivity but could also be a big accessibility problem. Creating a website completely in Flash could let out a 2.78% of the visitors and make the site completely empty for search engines, which may be your primary inconvenience.

Many sites will look at Flash as a primary necessity while others may only use it for animation or will not use it at all.

– If your site does not need it, then try to use it only for animation or providing rich alternative texts.
– Avoid building menus in Flash, as user agents not supporting it will not be able to follow their links.
– Export the swf files using the lowest version possible. Only a 69.2% of the visitors use the latest version. The rest 29.03% will have to download before playing the movie.
– Try to make the movie size as little as possible so people do not get bored waiting for the page to load. There are still an 11.83% of visitors using dial-up connections.

JavaScript

JavaScript has similar issues to Flash. Many user agents will not support it, including search engines robots. A 1.77% of the visitors will not be able to see the information written in JavaScript nor follow the links.

– If possible use it only for not necessary interactivity and functionality.

– Otherwise, provide alternative static content in the "noscript" tag.

– Do not make it necessary to follow a link. Use the "location.href" command as the "onclick" event in a static link ("a" tag).

Frames

Frames are nice, but should be definitively avoided. While most of the user agents support frames, search engines, as well as blind people, could have been seriously confused when trying to relate the …

Electronics Industry Invests in Fashion Conscious Gadgets

Posted on Posted in gadget, internet

While gadgets have traditionally been attractive because they do novel or impressive things, many gadgets these days are designed with thought put into how they look. This is true for mobile phones more so than any other type of gadget. For example, the Motorola Razr phone was as much of a fashion statement as it was a useful device. "Was" is the operative word when considering the Razr because it has recently gone out of style and the number of units of the model sold have plummeted. That's illustrative of one of the dangers of making electronic devices that are designed to satisfy the fickle notions of fashion that many people have. That said though, a lot of companies are doing it anyway. For example, LG electronics which is based out of South Korea has jumped onto the fashionable mobile phone bandwagon. LG- which has been known for producing low cost handsets in the past- has more recently collaborated with Prada to produce a handset that bears the Prada name. The Prada phone was developed with image in mind when it came to everything from the look of the actual phone to the icons that go on the screen to the ring tones and to the hard leather case and lint cloth that comes with it.

The Prada phone also has a fair amount of functionality built into it including the ability to take digital photographs. It also has touch screen features and can be used to surf the Internet. The Prada phone is also a multimedia device that can be used to listen to music, look at digital photos, and watch video.

Another venture into the fashion world of LG can be seen in its newer sliding phones. With these gadgets the screen on the phone slides up to reveal the keypad. In addition to being flashy, these phones have some practical benefits as well. The most obvious benefit of this design is the fact that it allows for a larger screen on a more compact device.

In addition to practical concerns, this device also has a fair amount of flair built into it as well. One model has a polished black casing, buttons that glow red, and a screen that becomes a mirror when it's turned off. There's another model that features a shiny metal casing along with similar features to the one mentioned above.

There are a number of problems associated with making phones that are stylish. One problem is economic in nature. Namely, because fashion trends are so fickle and change so quickly, a company that focuses on making fashionable electronic products could quickly see all of its efforts to go the way of the Razr phone if the winds of style blow the wrong way.

The other problem with fashionable electronic devices is that in many ways, achieving a certain look presents engineering problems. For example, polished metal is stylish these days, but metal does not allow mobile phones to transmit and receive signals as …

Website Promotion Strategies – Using PPC Marketing

Posted on Posted in internet, website

As an effort to get website traffic, many website owners have already begun using pay-per-click advertising. When Google introduced Adwords, webmasters were impressed that they only had to pay a fee when someone actually visited their website.

Examples of PPC Marketing

Google AdWords allows advertisers to create advertisements (based on content) that ever appear on the search results page of the Google search engine. Websites that give the OK to allow these kinds of advertisements to appear on their pages will receive monetary compensation in return. Every time someone clicks on an ad displayed on a web page, the owner of the site accumulates profit.

Yahoo also offers pay-per-click advertising, although Google is the industry leader and most recognizable. Yahoo's pay-per-click program used to be called Overture, but is now called Yahoo Search Marketing.

Together, these two services make up the largest pay per click systems on the World Wide Web. However, many other individual sites provide website owners with different sponsorship capabilities, such as ExactSeek, ABC Search, and Enhance.

PPC Marketing Benefits

The attractiveness of pay per click is seen in the level of targeting available to advertisers. With PPC, it is rather uncomplicated to market to the kind of audience you wish to reach. Many site owners have positioned advertisements that only appear when specific search terms are used or on websites that cater to a particular kind of readership. This method increases the quality of traffic that visits a site – bringing in visitors that are more likely to show interest in the type of products or services you are offering.

Another benefit of pay per click advertising is the fact you only pay for the clicks to your site. There's no need to pay simply for exposure, you only pay for actual visitors who are interested in what is being sold at your site. In addition, tracking your results is not a hassle, because in-depth statistics (given in real-time) show you exactly how your marketing is doing. This is one reason PPC has gained a great following among online businesses that solely use the Internet for advertising, as well as traditional companies (bricks-and-mortar) that are searching for effective methods of marketing.

Because pay per click marketing allows webmasters to track and target their results, the offline advertising such as magazine, newspaper, and television have suffered a decrease in advertising sales. PPC has also replaced CPM (cost per thousand impressions) advertising that once served as the original foundation used to sell advertising on websites. With CPM, advertisers had to pay for their advertisements whether they produced traffic to their website or not. This method did help the branding of a business, but did not help much with getting sales. And advertisers were not able to track or modify their efforts because they had no way of assessing the effectiveness or progress of their ads.

If you want to get the best results possible from your pay per click campaigns, it is recommended to become familiar with how …

Microsoft Great Plains Customization Tools – Overview

Posted on Posted in programming

Formerly Great Plains Software Dynamics / eEnterprise, and currently Microsoft Business Solutions Great Plains was initially designed in the early 1990th as the extendable and modular application with its proprietary tool: Great Plains Dexterity, written in C programming language as a shell. This was popular tendency those days -compare with SAP ABAP or Navision C / Side. Great Plains has additional ideas – database platform independence and graphical platform independent interface (initially targeted to both Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows with good chance that one of them will take market over – and it did happen, including the acquisition of Great Plains Software by Microsoft ). In this small article we'll give you revised overview – you can find previous publication in the last year posts.

o Great Plains Dexterity. Dexterity is the architecture of Great Plains and it is very difficult to take it out of the picture. So we'll say that if you plan on creation GP module or custom piece for reselling it on the market – you should first consider Dexterity as a tool. Dexterity requires deep training and some experience – you can not begin programming in Dexterity over night. So-called fat client of Great Plains is pure dexterity application, although database itself since version 8.0 is MS SQL Server with some Dexterity specifics (DEW_ROW_ID column, for example).

o Old Tools. These tools were popular in 1990th and relate to such now legacy technologies as OLE, VBA scripting, etc. Please note that even if C was considered as universal language – custom scripts were targeted for light customizations and both C and VBA were targeted to modify fat client – thin client and web interface were not known those good old days.

1. VBA / Modifier. Microsoft introduced VBA as scripting for light customization of Microsoft Office products – Excel, Word, etc. Great Plains adopted it for its own needs. It tried to produce Dexterity / VBA hybrid and allowed Dexterity forms to be modified via Modifier (Dexterity application) and enabled modified screens to adopt VBA for its fields.

2. Continuum for VB / Dephi. Borland was strong on the customization market – this is why it also includes Delphi. In Continuum you can program Great Plains workstation as OLE server. For example – you can have Great Plains Integration Manager integrate multiple companies data one-by-one with automatic logging in and off without operator intervention – over night for example. Also – you can deploy Continuum to switch Dexterity modules (such as Intellisol APOP or Project Accounting) and include Dexterity Sanscript code into VBA scripts.

3. ReportWriter. We placed RW in this section because it is Dexterity application and is now actively replaced with new tools, such as Crystal Reports, SQL Reporting, XML & HTML web publishing

o New Tools. In XXI century development world begins to bias toward thin and web clients and SQL scripting. eCommerce is a must for retail and wholesale nationwide businesses and Microsoft Business Solutions come with these tools:

What Everybody Ought to Know About Linkbait and Modern SEO

Posted on Posted in seo, website

A successful linkbait is one of the fastest and most inexpensive ways to build thousands of good quality backlinks pointing to your site. But here is the best part: it is the way Google wants you to build links.

Let us start by describing the concept of linkbait for those who are not familiar with it. Linkbait referes to the art of creating content with the main purpose of attracting links to your site.

Nothing new, you may be thinking. Linkbait is basically good content, right?

Well in a way it is, but there is more to it than that. Let me start by telling you why linkbait is so popular nowdays among Search Engine Optimizers (also known as SEOs.)

A few years ago when SEO professionals wanted to promote a website in the search engines that would do what was working at the moment: reciprocal link exchanges. An SEO would set up a website, put some content on it, and start sending emails to webmasters offering a reciprocal link exchange. If the webmaster accepted both sites would display a link back to the other site.

This used to work well until Google and the rest of the search engines realized that the technique was getting abused and reciprocal links were not any an indication of one site's popularity.

At this time most SEO practitioners agreed that the best way to achieve Search Engine Rankings was to get one way links pointing to their sites. A one way link was worth a lot more than reciprocal link exchanges. This is when the link buying market boomed, using the Page Rank metric as the main market arbitrager.

So basically all an SEO did was open her wallet and buy as many links as she needed to rank for certain keywords. This worked well for a while but of course it did not take Google long to figure out that these type of links were not an accurate indication of a website's popularity.

So Google is now penalizing sites that buy and sell links. Many SEOs and webmasters are complaining about this because they are left without ideas. They think this is unfair.

I personally think that Google has every right to decide what is the best way to decide what a site popularity is. I also agree on the fact that paid links are not an indication of site popularity. So instead of complaining about what does not work anymore, why do not we talk about what does work?

What works now is Linkbait., So how do you create a linkbait?

1. Visit Digg, Reddit, Del.icio.us, Propeller and other popular social media sites and research for stories related to your niche that have become popular in the past.

2. Analyze all these stories and use them as the basis of your brainstorming. You want to understand why these stories were popular among these communities.

3. Write your article. Some article formats have better chances of becoming popular in social media sites. …

How To Select A Good SEO Company!

Posted on Posted in internet, seo, website

I once read a remark that if a SEO company can not top (at least) for the keyword "SEO" in Google, it can not be a worthy company.

I know a lot of people might come up with the same logic while searching for the best SEO Company for his site. But let's take a look at the scenario from some different angles.

Why do you target some keywords in your website? The answer is obviously to get targeted visitors who are looking for some service – those who are my potential customers.

But does the word SEO have the potential to bring me genuine customers? For example if my site ranks 1st on Google for 'SEO Services' and 'SEO', which one do you think will get me desired visitors who are willing to buy a service? The answer is obviously SEO Services. And at the same time the competition for SEO Services is comparatively less (but tough) then SEO.

Most of the good SEO companies get clients on recommendations. For example, if I like XYZ Company's job, I will recommend it for my friend's site. And that XYZ get more clients – simple.

Another big reason is that a lot of SEO companies do not want their name to be associated with the term SEO to search engines.

But if some SEO companies say that due to heavy work pressure that could not concentrate on the ranking of their website – do not believe them or do not work with them either. If they can not find time to work for their mother site, how much time can you expect for your own site?

Now, the problem is somewhere else – every one claims them to be the best SEO Company. And unless I get recommendation from some reliable sources, it is tough to decide their credibility.

So how to find the best SEO company?

To start with it is better to go for local SEO companies (for example search for Florida or Ft Lauderdale SEO and website marketing in search engines if you are from that region). If you are new to internet marketing, this is the best option to start as they are comparatively cheap and you may get someone in your extended friend's community who can give you some feedback about them. At least you can reach them physically at any point of time.

If some companies say that they will help you guaranteed top ranking in Google or Yahoo for a very competitive keyword like SEO Services and they will do it within one month – do not work with them. Getting a good search engine rank is a long term process and no one can guarantee it. And even if they do it with some black hat SEO techniques, it may harm your business in the long run and this sort of ranking is normally not sustainable for a long period.

Ask for their track record – if they have done some good work …

Computer Hacking Methods and Protection

Posted on Posted in computer, internet, website

Protecting your computer against hacking is different from protecting it against viruses that you accidentally or unknowingly invite into your computer that then cause damage in one form or another. Anti-hack is about protecting your computer against external entities that are deliberately trying to get into your computer to cause damage and to steal from you – or cause damage. Viruses are impersonal and hacking is personal.

Anti-Hack software is now out there for sale in addition to anti-virus software. These products protect you in ways that anti-virus software does not. Following are some examples.

DoS (Denial of Service) Attacks:

DoS attacks occur when too much traffic is directed to your company website at once. The web server essentially ‘chokes’ on the amount of traffic trying to squeeze into it’s network hardware. Attack scripts are easily downloadable and you do not need to be an experienced engineer to launch an attack. Upset customers seeking some sort of revenge or disruption, competitors interrupting your site, or these days, as in the recent major hospital attacks, the trend is to hold your web site hostage until some ransom is paid or some demand met. “Ransomeware” is a relatively new term, but it is gaining a lot of visibility in recent times.

SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) Attacks:

Akamai’s Prolexic Security Engineering and Response Team (PLXsert) recently issued a threat advisory warning of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks abusing the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) interface. PLXsert SNMP DDoS attack campaigns target various industries including consumer products, gaming, hosting, nonprofits, and software-as-a-service, mainly in the US (49.9%) and China (18.49%). The attackers used an online tool posted by the hacker group ‘Team Poison’. This latest wave of attacks targets devices running SNMP which by default is open to the public Internet unless that feature is manually disabled. Anti-hack software is now being created that help prevent SNMP attacks such as this by preventing the attacker from forcing network switching to secondary gateways.

SYN/AWK Attacks:

This is a little complex but basically, a SYN flood attack is similar to a Denial of Service attack in that there is request made to the web server that ties up its resources and makes it unavailable to other connections. When a computer or web browser tries to connect to a web site, what’s called a 3-way handshake is used to establish the connection between the two computers. In a SYN/AWK Flood attack, the computer offers its hand (1-way), the server reaches out to meet it (2-way) but the offered hand is quickly withdrawn. The server waits for the hand to come back until it ‘times-out’ and then the cycle repeats millions of times. The 3-way handshake is never established and all other connections are refused while this is happening.

USB Auto-Run Attacks:

By default, Windows runs any executable, program, or script on a USB drive the second it is inserted into any computer or laptop. This means that anyone* with unauthorized code, like a virus or …

Slow Computer? Maybe It's Time For a Registry Scan

Posted on Posted in computer, internet

If your computer is running slowly, then it might time to think about performing a registry scan. These are widely claimed to be able to fix many different errors on your computer and speed it up. But how do you perform one of these scans and can they really boost the speed of your PC?

A registry scan is the term used to describe the process you take to clean out the 'registry databsae'. This database is the central storage facility for Windows and is where your PC keeps information ranging from your latest emails to your desktop wallpaper. A lot of people recommend cleaning out the registry as a good way to speed up your PC.

Registry scans can speed up your computer considering thanks to the way in which they work. To perform a 'registry scan' you should use a registry cleaner tool, which is a software program that scans the entire registry database and removes and damaged or corrupt settings that are inside it. The way in which one of these tools speeds up your PC is to scan through the entire registry database and remove any of the damaged or corrupt files that are slowing it down. This will allow Windows to read all the settings it needs in a much faster time, allowing your computer to run faster – like it did when it was new.

Using a registry scan is a good way to make your PC run faster as it acts like a "detox" for Windows. Unlike other operating systems, Windows relies mainly on the registry to help it remember various different files … which means that if you can get a registry tool to fix all the problems that it has inside the database, it will make your PC run much faster and more reliably. To use a registry cleaner to speed up your PC, you should first download one from the Internet. There are many different sites which offer these tools, allowing you to find one which is going to remove a lot of errors from your system.

After you've downloaded a registry scanner, install it and it will start to scan yor PC. You can then see all the errors that it is finding. Each error can cause your PC to run as much as 30 seconds slower – as your PC has to take longer to read through the details that the setting needs. This means that if you can get a registry tool that can fix the largest number of errors on your system, it should be able to run as fast as it did when it was new. And that's why so many people recommend using a registry scan to speed up your PC.

How to Completely Delete Files From a Computer

Posted on Posted in computer, technology

Most people do not think about it, but when they delete a file from their computer, it is not destroyed. The computer deletes certain key information about the physical location of the file from the disk directory on the hard drive. The file is still sitting there on the disk and can be recovered by someone with the knowledge and the right equipment. Knowing this, one may be asking about now, “is there a way to completely delete files from a computer?” The answer is yes.

One method of deleting files in a way that makes it impossible to recover them is using a large magnet to degauss the hard drive. This realigns the magnetic fields on the disk and effectively erases every scrap of data that was ever stored there. The drawback to this method is that the disk is completely erased, including system files and operating systems.

Today, it is possible to purchase software that is capable of overwriting an entire disk to cover the data with random number sequences that mean nothing. One pass of this software will normally render files impossible to retrieve for civilians. Government agencies and police forces can still get the data off the disk. It takes up to seven passes with this type of software to completely overwrite all files and make them irretrievable. This method also overwrites the entire disk, destroying data that may be valuable or wanted to be kept.

The newest technology involves a file shredder program that randomizes the data in the deleted files at the time of deletion. These are still physically present on the disk, but the data is so scrambled that no computer is able to make sense of it. This method allows one to completely delete files from a computer without completely erasing the entire disk.…
