Printer Problem & How To Fix It

Don’t toss your inkjet or laser out the window — you need that printer, after all! Here’s how you can channel your inner tech support rep to repair that which has failed you.

By Jeff BertolucciPCWorld

Printers: Can’t live with them, can’t nuke them. You could always toss a misbehaving inkjet or laser out the window, but where would that leave you? Truth be told, we need our printers, despite their maddening quirks. Here’s a saner idea: Take a deep breath, channel your inner tech support rep, and repair that which has failed you. (Cue sitar.)

We’ve listed the 10 biggest printer annoyances — of course, your Top 10 list may vary — and ways to fix them.

Problem: Printing is too slow.

Solution: Rev up printer performance–and save ink in the process–by reducing print quality for everyday output. While printer settings vary by model, here’s how to switch to draft-printing mode in most Windows apps. Select Print and Properties, and then look for a setting that reduces print quality. With the HP Photosmart 8450, for instance, change the default print quality setting from Normal to Fast Draft (click screen-shot at right). Other speedup suggestions: Print pages from websites without graphics, and add RAM to your printer, if possible. Read “Speed Up Everything” for more tips.

Problem: Ink and/or toner costs too much.  Continue reading

Top Ten Countries on the Internet

It is interesting to see that the top searches by country vary just as much as the countries that make up the Top 10 countries on the internet. They do have one thing in common, there is at least one social network in each of the top 5 searches. I have to say though, one thing that always stumps me is why people search for sites like Facebook and Google instead of just going there directly. It is a mystery that will most likely never be solved.

The Psychology of Success part 2: Belief

One of the most important characteristics you’ll find in successful individuals (especially entrepreneurs) is belief in themselves. It’s no secret, many athletes use it to give them an edge to beat competitors and current billionaires have used it in the lowest moments of their lives as motivation to keep going. A lot of us know the importance of this important trait yet fail to make use of it in our daily lives.

Yes, you can be successful too.   Continue reading

The Psychology of Success

What is the difference between passion and obsession? For starters, an obsession is usually an act that you are always (and sometimes uncontrollably) preoccupied with. A passion, on the other hand, is a strong love that can be the pathway to a healthy relationship or to a harmful obsession.

It seems that more and more entrepreneurs these days are falling into that first category of obsessing over there work, an act that is detrimentally affecting both their project and social life. While it may have started as a healthy, passionate drive, several factors are now pushing them towards an unhealthy obsession that can often lead to failure instead of success.

While an entrepreneur (or anyone) can take advantage of either their passionate or obsessive feelings to force themselves to work, there are some key differences that should be noted. For starters, obsession can often lead to depression if certain goals are not met. This is very common when entrepreneurs take on too much and are unable to complete tasks, disappointing themselves or others. Being overly obsessive can also be detrimental to a person’s social life and family, as they are constantly preoccupied and easily agitated.    Continue reading

Offline files in Windows ?

If you’ve ever needed to access important files stored in a shared folder on your network but couldn’t because the network connection was unavailable, then you can understand the need for offline files. Using offline files, you can access files stored in shared network folders even when the network copies are unavailable. You can do this by choosing the network files you want to make available offline, which automatically creates a copy of the network files on your computer. These copies of network files that are stored on your computer are called offline files. Windows will automatically sync your offline files for you and open them whenever the network versions are unavailable.

For instructions on how to use offline files, see Working with network files when you are offline.

You can access network files when you can connect to the computer where the network files are stored
You can access local copies of network files when you can’t connect to the computer where the network files are stored

Hadith Makanan dan Minuman

1. Sesungguhnya Allah baik dan tidak mengabulkan (menerima) kecuali yang baik-baik. Allah menyuruh orang mukmin sebagaimana Dia menyuruh kepada para rasul, seperti firmanNya dalam surat Al Mukminun ayat 52: “Hai rasul-rasul, makanlah dari makanan-makanan yang baik-baik dan kerjakanlah amal yang shaleh.” Allah juga berfirman dalam surat Al Baqarah 172: “Hai orang-orang yang beriman makanlah di antara rezeki yang baik-baik.” Kemudian Rasulullah menyebut seorang yang melakukan perjalanan jauh, rambutnya kusut dan wajahnya kotor penuh debu menadahkan tangannya ke langit seraya berseru: “Ya Robbku, Ya Robbku”, sedangkan makanannya haram, minumannya haram, pakaiannya haram dan dia diberi makan dari yang haram pula. Jika begitu bagaimana Allah akan mengabulkan doanya? (HR. Muslim)  Continue reading

Ants do speak!


And gathered for Solomon were his soldiers of the jinn and men and birds, and they were [marching] in rows.

Dan dihimpunkan bagi Nabi Sulaiman bala tenteranya, dari jin dan manusia serta burung; lalu mereka dijaga serta diatur keadaan dan perjalanan masing-masing.27:18

Until, when they came upon the valley of the ants, an ant said, “O ants, enter your dwellings that you not be crushed by Solomon and his soldiers while they perceive not.”

(Maralah angkatan itu) hingga apabila mereka sampai ke “Waadin-Naml”, berkatalah seekor semut: “Wahai sekalian semut, masuklah ke sarang kamu masing-masing, jangan Sulaiman dan tenteranya memijak serta membinasakan kamu, sedang mereka tidak menyedari”.27:19

So [Solomon] smiled, amused at her speech, and said, “My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve. And admit me by Your mercy into [the ranks of] Your righteous servants.”

Maka tersenyumlah Nabi Sulaiman mendengar kata-kata semut itu, dan berdoa dengan berkata:” Wahai Tuhanku, ilhamkanlah daku supaya tetap bersyukur akan nikmatMu yang Engkau kurniakan kepadaku dan kepada ibu bapaku, dan supaya aku tetap mengerjakan amal soleh yang Engkau redai; dan masukkanlah daku – dengan limpah rahmatMu – dalam kumpulan hamba-hambaMu yang soleh”.

 (The Noble Quran; An-Naml: 17-19).

US declares Osama dead, has his body

WASHINGTON, May 2: Eight years after president George Bush declared “mission accomplished” in Iraq, Osama bin Laden, accused by the US to be the mastermind behind al-Qaida and the attacks of 11 September 2001, has been killed by a US operation last week, President Barack Obama will announce shortly.

Osama’s body is in possession of the US, having been killed in Pakistan as the result of a US special forces and CIA operation, according to the first leaks of reporting from the US television networks.

President Obama is to make a Sunday night live statement to announce the news, around 11pm eastern time (11am MYT).

The news comes eight years to the day that President George Bush declared “Mission accomplished” in Iraq. As president, Bush declared he wanted bin Laden “dead or alive” – but it is now the unlikely figure of Barack Obama who announces the final triumph as the US commander in chief.

The news comes as an unparalleled boost for US foreign policy as well as Obama’s plummeting public rating. It also assures Obama of a re-election in the 2012 presidential contest.

TOKYO — Sony executives bowed in apology Sunday for a security breach in the company’s PlayStation Network that compromised the personal data of some 77 million accounts on the online service.

“We deeply apologize for the inconvenience we have caused,” said Kazuo Hirai, chief of Sony Corp.’s PlayStation video game unit, who was among the three executives who held their heads low for several seconds at the company’s Tokyo headquarters in the traditional style of a Japanese apology.   Continue reading
