The Myth and the Truth of the IP Address Tracing

Many people are under the misconception that it’s easy to trace the physical location of the computer to which an internet IP address has been assigned and thereby identify the computer’s user.

It’s certainly not easy and depending on who you are it may not even be possible.

An IP or “Internet Protocol” address is the unique number assigned to every device such as a computer on a network so that data can be routed to and from that device and no other. Much like your postal mailing address identifies the physical location of your post box and allows your mail carrier to know where to deliver your mail, a device’s IP address is what allows the internet to know where to send the data destined for your computer.

But while an IP address is like a physical address it’s important to realize that’s not what it actually is.

Defrag, Defragmentation and Slow Computer

If your computer is slowing down and suffering from crashes and system hangs, hard drive failures and program errors, it is not necessary to buy a new computer, its just time to defragment your hard drive. The most common reliability and downtime problems experienced on your computer are directly associated with hard disk fragmentation.

What is fragmentation? When files are saved, the new data is stored in the available free space on the hard disk. However, as files are added, removed, and changed in size, the disk becomes fragmented, leaving only small holes in which place to place new data. When a new file is written, or when an existing file is extended, the new data will be scattered out across the disk, slowing down file access due to seek time and rotational delay of the read / write head. As the level of file fragmentation grows the status of … Read More

What Makes a Good PLC Program?

PLC programmers have been faced with a steep learning curve over the last 25 years, as technologies have moved quickly and almost all industries have implemented programmable logic controllers as a standard. This means that good experienced programs are hard to find, and while most companies offer programming services there are important features which are often missed out.

Firstly a PLC programmer should write code so that it can be easily understood. Documentation and structure are essential. This often involves a working knowledge of the plant or process, a good PLC should be able to solve engineering problems from a specification, not just produce lines of code. From my experience the best PLC programmers are always firstly engineers.

Secondly the end user should never need to look at the PLC programmer's code this might seem a contradiction of point one but a good program will perform without intervention. I work … Read More

Which Is More Important – Your Qs or As?

Many would suggest that to succeed in sales and service it's important to have all the right answers; but while I too think knowledge is important, I suspect that asking all the right questions is what really matters most.

Let me illustrate by way of example:

Some time back I was shopping for a flat screen TV. My first stop "Ah … what's the difference between all these different brands and models … and … um … which one is better?" he led me on a journey from set to set while citing at great length all of their technical specifications.

He talked of DPI, NPR, HDMI as well as the intricacies of NTSC, ATSC and QAM tuners, then compared Plasmas, LCDs and LEDs and even a few 3Ds in terms of contrast ratios and video frame versus screen refresh rates.

Clearly this guy knew his stuff, but after about … Read More

How to Accelerate Your Computer Start-Up

The day from you add programs to your computer, many of these applications automatically add themselves to your Windows Start-up folder. You may not notice it until overload of your system packed with too many applications causes obvious slowness.

Additionally, these applications can hide themselves quietly to an invisible area but still joining the booting process via the MSCONFIG run command. In extreme case, your PC will appear frozen feint and can not be used as usual. Except for the overload, there may be some other little errors, which put you in frustration after rebooting it several times. What comes to you first should be seeking help from a computer doctor or reinstalling the system. They are either expensive or time-consuming, which may be not what you want. There must be something you can do personally and more effectively.

To speed things up, finding out and limiting these applications and … Read More
