Glossary

  • URL

    URL


    A Uniform Resource Locator(URL), is a compact string of characters used to identify or name a resource. The main purpose of this identification is to enable interaction with representations of the resource over a network, typically the World Wide Web, using specific protocols. URIs are defined in schemes defining a specific syntax and associated protocols.

  • JPG (File Interchange Format)

    JPG (File Interchange Format)


    JPEG is a commonly used standard method of compression for photographic images. The name JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, the name of the committee who created the standard. The group was organized in 1986, issuing a standard in 1992 which was approved in 1994 as ISO 10918-1. JPEG should not be confused with MPEG, the Moving Picture Experts Group, which produces compression schemes for motion pictures.

    JPEG provides for lossy compression of images (although there are variations on the standard baseline JPEG which are lossless). The file format which employs this compression is commonly also called JPEG; the most common file extension for this format is .jpg, though .jpeg, .jpe, .jfif and .jif are also used.

    JPEG itself specifies both the codec defining how an image is transformed into a stream of bytes, and the file format used to contain that stream. The file format is known as 'JPEG Interchange Format' (Often confused with the JPEG File Interchange Format), and is specified in Annex B of the standard. It is possible for JPEG data to be embedded in other file types, such as TIFF format images.

    JPEG/JFIF is the format most used for storing and transmitting photographs on the World Wide Web. For this application, it is preferred to formats such as GIF, which has a limit of 256 distinct colors that is insufficient for color photographs, and PNG, which produces much larger image files for this type of image. The compression algorithm is not as well suited for line drawings and other textual or iconic graphics, and thus the PNG and GIF formats are preferred for these types of images.

    The MIME media type for JPEG is image/jpeg (defined in RFC 1341).

  • Browser

    Browser


    Browser is a software application that enables a user to display and interact with text, images, and other information typically located on a web page at a website on the World Wide Web or a local area network. Text and images on a web page can contain hyperlinks to other web pages at the same or different website. Web browsers allow a user to quickly and easily access information provided on many web pages at many websites by traversing these links. Web browsers format HTML information for display, so the appearance of a web page may differ between browsers.

    Some of the web browsers available for personal computers include Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Netscape, and Opera in order of descending popularity (as of August 2006). Web browsers are the most commonly used type of HTTP user agent. Although browsers are typically used to access the World Wide Web, they can also be used to access information provided by web servers in private networks or content in file systems.

  • E-Mail

    E-Mail


    Electronic mail (abbreviated "e-mail" or, often, "email") is a store and forward method of composing, sending, storing, and receiving messages over electronic communication systems.

    The term "e-mail" (as a noun or verb) applies both to the Internet e-mail system based on the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and to intranet systems allowing users within one organization to e-mail each other. Often these workgroup collaboration organizations may use the Internet protocols for internal e-mail service.

  • FrontPage

    FrontPage


    Microsoft FrontPage (later full name Microsoft Office FrontPage) was a WYSIWYG HTML editor and web site administration tool from Microsoft for the Microsoft Windows line of operating systems. It was part of Microsoft Office application suite from 1997 to 2006. A Macintosh version was also released in 1998. Microsoft FrontPage has since been replaced by Microsoft Expression Web, which was released in December 2006.

    One of the notable features of FrontPage is its built-in support for automated web templates. The main distinction between these templates and HTML templates generated by other products is that FrontPage templates include an automatic navigation system that creates animated buttons for pages that have been added by the user. It also creates a multi-level navigation system on the fly using the buttons and the structure of the web site.

  • Setup fetch email using Netvigator

    Setup fetch email using Netvigator


    Why Should I Use Fetch Mail Instead of an Email Forwarder?

    We are committed to improving the stability of services.

    Unfortunately, it is very common for mail forwarding to cause blacklisting with many large email providers. This most commonly occurs when large amounts of mail are forwarded and then marked as spam after it has been received in the end user's inbox. This results in our server's sending reputation being penalized since it was the last server to send the mail. Ultimately, our server will be blacklisted with the email provider and it will affect all of other users on the same server.

    A solution to this is to disabled mail forwarding altogether. change to using mail fetcher, you can access mail in a other system without having the mail routed through that system's server. This way, you can mark a message as spam without it affecting our email server's reputation.

    The instructions below provide steps on how to fetch mail from our server so you can access them via Netvigator Mail.

    Once Mail Fetcher is set up, Netvigator will check those accounts on a regular basis, and new mail will appear automatically in Netvigator mail.

    • Log into your Netvigator account. https://www.netvigator.com/chi/email.php
    • Click Preferences and locate the Accounts section.
    • Click Add External Account.
    • Enter the full email address in the Email address field.
    • Select POP3 in the Account type field.
    • Enter the full email address in the Username of Account field.
    • Enter mail.yourdomain.com in the Email Server field. (Enter your domain instead of "yourdomain.com".)
    • In the Password field, enter the password for the email address you provided.
    • No need to enable Advanced Settings.
    • Click Save.

  • How to enable Mod-Rewrite Module

    How to enable Mod-Rewrite Module


    This module uses a rule-based rewriting engine (based on a regular-expression parser) to rewrite requested URLs on the fly. It supports an unlimited number of rules and an unlimited number of attached rule conditions for each rule, to provide a really flexible and powerful URL manipulation mechanism. The URL manipulations can depend on various tests, of server variables, environment variables, HTTP headers, or time stamps. Even external database lookups in various formats can be used to achieve highly granular URL matching.

    In order to enable Mod_Rewrite for your site you should create a text file called .htacccess in the directory where you wish the rewrite rules to apply.

    The first line of this text file should be:
    RewriteEngine On

    After that you can place your rewrite rules. Here are some examples for Joomla's SEF option:
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (/|.htm|.php|.html|/[^.]*)$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(content/|component/) index.php

    Many applications come with ready to use rewrite rules that can be found in a file called htaccess.txt.

    Upload this file into the root of your domain(e.g. httpdocs). The changes take effect immediately.

  • 如何利用異地備份隬補防毒軟件的不足

    如何利用異地備份隬補防毒軟件的不足


    從世衛在2009年4月24號發出的第一個人類豬流感個案開始,至今已有76個國家和超過3萬感染個案而豬流感病毒變種的問題也成為了全球關注的話題。其實在電腦的世界,惡性攻擊病毒每天在不斷的增加、更新和改變,而企業往往就因為病毒入侵而造成數據丟失和摧毀的受害者。如何防範數據丟失帶來的災難性影響,是企業I.T.部門經常要面對的挑戰。

    企業單靠病毒掃描軟件並不足夠

    根據美國FBI 2005的研究指出,約84%的公司會受到惡性病毒的攻擊。另外,美國網絡安全協會(Cyber Secure Institute) 的報告指出,企業為了清除各項病毒的花費高達90億美元!無論您為電腦做再好的隔離措施,例如擁有最新的防病毒軟件和頻密的病毒掃描,病毒也可以找到辦法入侵電腦系統然後摧毀公司重要的檔案,例如客戶清單、合約和訂單等等。公司因為數據丟失和內部電腦系統故障影響而到商譽也絕非金錢能隬補。所以,企業要防範數據丟失帶來的災難性影響,單靠病毒掃描軟件並不足夠。

    設立災難性回復方案才能治本

    其實要解決以上問題就要從根本著手,第一步就是要為企業電腦系統設立有效和快速的災難復原方案 (Disaster Recovery Solution),而當中最重要的一環便是為每台電腦作鏡像備份(Image Backup),這樣,當遇到病毒入侵造成數據丟失,企業便可快速地把事先備份好電腦鏡像直接恢復到電腦上,把受到感染或是有故障的電腦復原到正常狀態,確保企業持續運作,儲存於電腦內的業務數據亦能得以保存。

    有資深企業備份經驗的Ahsay 銷售部經理候健生指出:「如何為企業設立有效和快速的災難復原方案是一個很大的課題,大小企業都需要正視。但對中小企來說,由於資源所限,加上公司內未必有專門負責I.T.方面的人員,所以很多中小企都未有實行。其實坊間都有不少能夠提供鏡像備份(Image Backup)的備份軟件,可以滿足基本備份需要。但這些軟件只能夠作本地備份,一旦公司的電腦受到病毒侵襲,用作儲存備份的電腦或伺服器亦可能已經中毒,導致已備份的鏡像無法還原而不能做到災難復原。所以企業應選擇具備異地鏡像備份的備份軟件,才能確保災難復原能發揮功效,因為就算本地公司內所有電腦和伺服器都已經中毒,儲存於異地的鏡像備份數據亦不會受到感染,企業便可快速地把電腦鏡像直接從異地恢復到電腦上,達至災難復原的目的。而Ahsay Backup Software 是市場上少數可以做到異地鏡像備份的企業備份方案。」

    關於Ahsay

    Ahsay Systems Corporation (亞勢系統有限公司) 建基於香港,目前在世界各地已擁有超過2, 900個服務合作夥伴和經銷商,並有超過90萬用戶安裝了Ahsay Backup Software備份軟件。

  • Twitter

    Twitter


    Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read each others' updates, known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters, displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to other users - known as followers - who have subscribed to them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees.

    Since its creation in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Twitter has gained notability and popularity worldwide. It is sometimes described as the "SMS of the Internet", as it provides the functionality—via its application programming interface (API)—for other desktop and web-based applications to send and receive short text messages, often obscuring the Twitter service itself.

    Plurk


    Plurk is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send updates (otherwise known as plurks) through short messages or links, which can be up to 140 text characters in length.

    Updates are then shown on the user's home page using a timeline which lists all the updates received in chronological order, and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. Users can respond to other users' updates from their timeline through the Plurk.com website, by instant messaging, or by text messaging.

  • 33 Million Domains Registered in 2007

    33 Million Domains Registered in 2007


    Report released by VeriSign, shows that over 33 Million domain names were registered in 2007, bringing the total up to 153million domains.

    Below is a summary of the report:

    In the last quarter of 2007, the base of domain name registrations grew 27 percent over the fourth quarter of 2006 and five percent over the third quarter of 2007… The total base of Country Code Top Level Domain Names (ccTLDs) was 58 million, a 33 percent increase year over year and a six percent increase quarter over quarter. Across all of the gTLDs and ccTLDs, .com has the highest base followed by .de (Germany), .net and .cn (China). The fifth spot is shared by .uk (United Kingdom) and .org. with approximately the same size base of domain name registrations.

    This release also states that the adoption of IPv6 has been relatively slow in the United States as compared to Asia and Europe. More than 100 domain name registries (i.e. top-level domain managers) support IPv6 for name servers and DNS queries including VeriSign who has supported IPv6 for .com and .net since 2002. The root name servers were enabled for IPv6 in February 2008 with the inclusion of IPv6 addresses for six of the thirteen root servers, including the A and J root servers operated by VeriSign.
