Glossary

  • Internet Protocol

    Internet Protocol


    Internet Protocol (IP) is a unique address that certain electronic devices use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a computer network utilizing the Internet Protocol standard (IP)—in simpler terms, a computer address. Any participating network device—including routers, computers, time-servers, printers, Internet fax machines, and some telephones—can have their own unique address.

    An IP address can also be thought of as the equivalent of a street address or a phone number (compare: VoIP (voice over (the) internet protocol)) for a computer or other network device on the Internet. Just as each street address and phone number uniquely identifies a building or telephone, an IP address can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on a network.

    IP addresses can appear to be shared by multiple client devices either because they are part of a shared hosting web server environment or because a proxy server (e.g., an ISP or anonymizer service) acts as an intermediary agent on behalf of its customers, in which case the real originating IP addresses might be hidden from the server receiving a request. The analogy to telephone systems would be the use of predial numbers (proxy) and extensions (shared).

    IP addresses are managed and created by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). The IANA generally allocates super-blocks to Regional Internet Registries, who in turn allocate smaller blocks to Internet service providers and enterprises.

  • 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.

  • HTML

    HTML


    short for HyperText Markup Language, is the predominant markup language for the creation of web pages. It provides a means to describe the structure of text-based information in a document — by denoting certain text as headings, paragraphs, lists, and so on — and to supplement that text with interactive forms, embedded images, and other objects. HTML is written in the form of labels (known as tags), created by greater-than signs (>) and less-than signs (<). HTML can also describe, to some degree, the appearance and semantics of a document, and can include embedded scripting language code which can affect the behavior of web browsers and other HTML processors.

    HTML is also often used to refer to content of the MIME type text/html or even more broadly as a generic term for HTML whether in its XML-descended form (such as XHTML 1.0 and later) or its form descended directly from SGML (such as HTML 4.01 and earlier).

  • Cookie

    Cookie


    The term Cookie derives from "magic cookie", a packet of data a program receives but only uses for sending it again, possibly to its origin, unchanged. Magic cookies were already used in computing when Lou Montulli had the idea of using them in Web communications in Mar 1993.

    Purpose
    HTTP cookies are used by Web servers to differentiate users and to maintain data related to the user during navigation, possibly across multiple visits. HTTP cookies were introduced to provide a way for realizing a "shopping cart" (or "shopping basket"), a virtual device into which the user can "place" items to purchase, so that users can navigate a site where items are shown, adding or removing items from the shopping basket at any time.

    Allowing users to log in to a website is another use of cookies. Users typically log in by inserting their credentials into a login page; cookies allow the server to know that the user is already authenticated, and therefore is allowed to access services or perform operations that are restricted to logged-in users.

    Many websites also use cookies for personalization based on users' preferences. Sites that require authentication often use this feature, although it is also present on sites not requiring authentication. Personalization includes presentation and functionality. For example, the Wikipedia Web site allows authenticated users to choose the webpage skin they like best; the Google search engine allows users (even non-registered ones) to decide how many search results per page they want to see.

    Cookies are also used to track users across a website. Third-party cookies and Web bugs, explained below, also allow for tracking across multiple sites. Tracking within a site is typically done with the aim of producing usage statistics, while tracking across sites is typically used by advertising companies to produce anonymous user profiles, which are then used to target advertising (deciding which advertising image to show) based on the user profile.

    Browser Setting
    Described in " How to Enable Cookie " section.

    Cookie Expiration
    Persistent cookies have been criticized by privacy experts for not being set to expire soon enough, and thereby allowing some websites to track users and build up a profile of them over time. This aspect of cookies also compounds the issue of session hijacking, because a stolen persistent cookie can potentially be used to impersonate a user for a considerable period of time.

    Identification
    If more than one browser is used on a computer, each usually has a separate storage area for cookies. Hence cookies do not identify a person, but a combination of a user account, a computer, and a Web browser. Thus, anyone who uses multiple accounts, computers, or browsers has multiple sets of cookies.

    Likewise, cookies do not differentiate between multiple users who share a computer and browser, if they do not use different user accounts.

  • If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec

    If You're Going To Steal Software, Steal From Us: Microsoft Exec


    Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes estimates that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated, but said some pirates end up becoming paying customers.

    By Paul McDougall
    InformationWeek
    12, 2007 03:00

    If you're going to be a software counterfeiter, then please copy and illegally use Microsoft products.

    The above plea isn't from a posting on a hacker forum. Rather, it's how Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes feels about software counterfeiters. "If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else," Raikes said.

    The remarks might seem surprising, coming from a senior executive at a software company that spends millions each year fighting software piracy and developing copyright protection technologies.

    But Raikes, speaking last week at the Morgan Stanley Technology conference in San Francisco, said a certain amount of software piracy actually helps Microsoft because it can lead to purchases by individuals who otherwise might never have been exposed to the company's products.

    "We understand that in the long run the fundamental asset is the installed base of people who are using our products," Raikes said. "What you hope to do over time is convert them to licensing the software."

    Raikes said Microsoft isn't about to abandon efforts to track down those who illegally copy and use its products. However, he said Microsoft has to balance that approach with the recognition that users of purloined software could one day become legitimate customers.

    "You want to push towards getting legal licensing, but you don't want to push so hard that you lose the asset that's most fundamental in the business," said Raikes, who estimated that between 20% and 25% of all software used in the United States is pirated.

    Raikes said Microsoft is developing so-called "pay-as-you-go" software offerings with pricing schemes similar to those used by cell phone companies for emerging markets as a way of encouraging low-income individuals to use the company's products legally.

  • 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.

  • Windows Mail Setup Tutorial

    Windows Mail Setup Tutorial


    Windows Mail in Windows Vista addresses today's serious concerns about junk mail, e-mail, and phishing attacks, while adding new features that help you search and manage the increasing volume of e-mail messages that you receive.

    In this tutorial we will learn how to setup Outlook Express for use with your new hosting email account.

    What you will Need:

    • A valid email account, if you haven't created an email account yet please log into your Control Panel and set up an email account.
    • An email client. This tutorial uses Windows Mail, which is a pre-installed component of Windows Vista.


    *** The above information is for reference only, Please seek independent technical advice if found necessary.

  • Are you able to send emails but not receive?

    Are you able to send emails but not receive?


    Either your E-Mail address setting is wrong, or your domain is out of disk space. You will need to increase the amount of disk space to receive mail again.

    Does it say "please enter your username and password for the following server" and you are sure you're using the correct information?

    Most of our servers have a 60 checks per hour limit. If you hit this limit in any hour you'll be locked out for the rest of the hour. you will need to click: Tools > Options > General > and disable where it says "check for new messages every xx minutes".

    If you do not want to disable it just set it to check less often. keep in mind the more computers you have auto checking or checking the mail the quicker you will hit this limit.

  • 文字輸入處理

    文字輸入處理


    對於商貿網站而言,內容文字佔著整體美觀感的重要環節,每頁適當地以整齊編排和簡短字數表達意思,可令訪問者看得容易理解和輕鬆,亦增強貴公司的企業型像。

    在我們的系統裏已內置了容易操作的HTML編輯器,可針對產品內容簡介及各訊息頁面進行編輯或修改,這編輯器的基本使用方式跟普通文書處理軟件很接近,如有一般文書處理的經驗,在使用上應很快熟習,當然我們仍建議在正式編輯資料前先模擬試驗多次,可減少錯誤的出現。

    以下是一些文字編排的注意事項:
    • 除英文字元外,中文、日文和韓文(如有),可為每個字元加空格以增加美觀

    • 英文和數字請採用標準字元,請盡量不要輸入全型字元

    • 應刪除所有整段文字的開頭、結尾的空格和空行。

    • 特別的符號、“注音中文字”或“香港增補字符集”( http://www.info.gov.hk/digital21/chi/hkscs/ )乃非標準字元,部份訪問者的電腦未有裝設此類字集,會出現亂碼情況,所以應盡量不要採用

    • 如需輸入日文和韓文或其他雙位元文字,請自行了解相關的非標準字元問題,並應盡量不要採用

    • 在相同頁面請勿同時存在英文以外的多種語言文字,例如中文加日文等,因會出現統一碼 (Unicode)不相容問題,引致出現亂碼情況

    • 除標準英文字元外,其他文字均有一套相關的編碼,例如繁體中文是big5,簡體中文是gb,日文是shift-jis和EUC,每套編碼均不相同,所以應注意當輸入文字時,各種語言均不能同時存在(英文除外),另外,當輸入時應注意所使用的電腦操作系統語言版本,例如以Windows輸入繁體中文,則該Windows必須是繁體版,其他亦然,因現時的電腦操作系統均為多語系相容,並可顯示各種語言文字,但實際輸入的文字在傳送到何服器時的編碼可能不同,並影響儲存或出現亂碼等問題

    • 所有文字或圖型的編排應以簡單為基礎,因太複雜的編排會令訪問下載頁面增加需時,並可能出現無法整頁展示等問題

    • 使用我們的HTML編輯器除了手作輸入外,亦可從其他途徑複制內容及貼上,但應注意勿貼上Microsoft Word的內容,因Microsoft Word的資料包含很多非必要而看不見的定義標籤,會令檔案增大及影響輸出

    • 完成輸入後應預覽效果並在需要時作出修正

    系統資料的輸入

    所有數值相關的資料,例如售價、運費、數量等資料,只可使用“數字”和“.”,絕不可包含“英文字母”和“其他符號”。

    正確的數值:
    • 10

    • 100

    • 1000.5

    • 10000.50

    • 100000.50

    • 1000000.50

    • 10000000

    不正確的數值:
    • 10+
      包含了符號

    • 一百
      系統不能辨認中國數字

    • [1000.5]
      包含了符號

    • 10000.50
      系統不能辨認全型數字

    • Ten Hundred Thousand
      系統不能辨認英文數目語法

    • 1,000,000.50
      無需加入千位分隔點

    • HK$10000000
      無需加入貨幣碼

    關於中文資料的輸入

    系統預設資料庫是“繁體中文”,所有中文文字、語句均應以“繁體中文”輸入,在網站上的“簡體中文”是由系統自動轉換而成的。
