Glossary

  • B2B (business-to-bussiness)

    B2B (business-to-bussiness)


    Business-to-business electronic commerce (B2B) typically takes the form of automated processes between trading partners and is performed in much higher volumes than business-to-consumer (B2C) applications.

    For example, a company that makes chicken feed would sell it to a chicken farm, another company, rather than directly to consumers. An example of a B2C transaction would be a consumer buying grain-fed chickens at a grocery store.

    B2B can also encompass marketing activities between businesses, and not just the final transactions that result from marketing. B2B also is used to identify sales transactions between business. For example a company selling photocopiers would likely be a B2B sales organisation as opposed to a B2C (business to consumer) sales organisation.

  • PNG (Portable Network Graphics)

    PNG (Portable Network Graphics)


    PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a bitmapped image format that employs lossless data compression. PNG was created to improve and replace the GIF format, as an image-file format not requiring a patent license.

    PNG is pronounced "ping" , but can be spoken "P-N-G" to avoid confusion with network tool ping. PNG is supported by the libpng reference library (platform-independent), with C functions for handling PNG images.

  • 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 Microsoft FrontPage has since been replaced by Microsoft Expression Web, which was released in December 2006.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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Eudora 6 For PC Email Tutorial

Light mode is Eudora without the bells and whistles, but also without advertisements.

    When you install Eudora it will be in Sponsored mode by default. You can change the mode by choosing 'Payment & Registration' from the help menu.

  • 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.

  • 「.tel」域名時代來臨,勢成全球電話簿

    「.tel」域名時代來臨,勢成全球電話簿


    所有個人或企業,於2009年2月3日起可以註冊「.tel」域名,作為對外溝通的渠道。這新域名特別針對流動上網,據報道,美國意大利法拉利車廠與《哈利波特》小說作家羅琳、微軟公司等等都已率先註冊該域名。

    「.tel」域名的特點是讓企業將所有聯繫方法,如電話、傳真、電郵等放在「.tel」,讓網民更方便與企業聯絡,甚至直接透過網站撥打電話或發送文字短信。企業還可以用它通過即時消息(Instant Messaging)工具、博客平台甚至語音電話(VoIP)服務等低成本通信渠道來降低其成本,從而做到既省錢又能加強客戶服務。

    「.tel」域名不同其他網域名稱的部分,在於不需有自己的IP,就能直接有完整網頁的呈現,並透過創新技術使得網頁內的聯絡資訊或關鍵字得以直接儲存,並同時被大眾所查閱,在透過其他常用軟體的支援下,點選EMAIL, MSN ID, SKYPE ID 或地址, 都能呈現極佳的互動效果。

    Telnic表示,他們會以「先到先得」的方式處理申請,預計一些極具吸引力的域名將很快會被搶購一空。

    全球網民在香港時間2009年2月3日23時起,就可到Telnic的網站 http://telnic.org 登記,每個.tel域名售300美元,為期3年,之後每年20美元。

  • Microsoft recommends against usage of SHA-1

    Microsoft recommends against usage of SHA-1


    Microsoft is advising its customers to stop using the SHA-1 hashing algorithm in cryptographic applications such as SSL/TLS encryption and code signing.

    In a security advisory issued by the company, Microsoft said that it would stop recognising certificates using the algorithm after January 1, 2016. After this date, certificate authorities (CAs) that issue certificates under the Windows Root Certificate Program will only be able to issue SHA-2 certificates.

    According to Microsoft, SHA-1 is used in 98 percent of all certificates issued worldwide. However, it also claims that since 2005 researchers have discovered collision attacks against the algorithm that mean it no longer meets its security standards. Although the announcement to drop SHA-1 comes today, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) has been advising government agencies to move to SHA-2 since December 2011.

    The ASD also has a slightly different opinion of when the collision attacks were first known, stating that "theoretically impressive attacks" against SHA-1 were known since 2004, but that they were not practical to implement.

    ASD has already removed the "weakened but not broken" SHA-1 algorithm from use in its Information Security Manual.

    The US National Institute of Standards and Technology, which published the algorithm, also stated in September 2012 that US federal agencies should stop using SHA-1.

    在線上商店設立“討論區”,能有效幫助提升瀏覽量,進而令產品銷售業績達至更高峰。

    專屬的“討論區”與一般外部連接的常見討論區具有很大的差別,因專屬“討論區”能跟商店風格完全配合,而且商店內的會員可直接參與討論,無需再次註冊,所以無論討論的會員與管理員均可輕鬆操作。

    由於專屬“討論區”屬實時互動,所有在線的會員都能根據自己的喜好,參與不同話題的討論,會員之間亦可表達到產品的用後感,這樣更能節省會員發出向商店查詢的數目。

    若您希望為會員提供理想的討論環境,那必需事先花點心思,開設多種不同話題的討論分區,並且多抽時間參與討論,這將能讓會員感到商店的熱誠服務。

    由於“討論區”屬實時運作,所有會員發表的訊息將直接張貼顯示,但有些情況例如會員張貼負面訊息、違法內容、不可接受的廣告等,管理員便應盡快修改文章,甚或刪除之避免帶來負面影響。

      討論分區的簡介,最長256個字元,例如“請發表您對本店產品的使用心得”(按需要輸入)

    • 狀態
      討論分區在商店的展示狀態,請選擇“顯示”或“不顯示”

    • 接受張貼狀態
      討論分區在商店的文章發表狀態,請選擇“開放張貼”或“禁止張貼”

    • 排序
      若多於一個討論分區,請安排各分區的上下排序,數字越細代表排列越高

    針對“討論分區”的動作:
    • 開放狀態
      點擊狀態列的“綠色”或“紅色”按鈕

    • 編輯
      修改已經增加的討論分區資料

    • 刪除

    3. 進入後,點擊希望管理的主題文章,或該主題的回覆文章

    2. 利用這個帳號登入商店,並前往討論區發表新文章,或進行回覆

    3. 發表後的文章,在文章發表人的稱名前,將顯示標緻為“管理員”

    注意事項:
    • “討論區”的內容和主題,只屬互動性質的額外資訊,不會構成對產品銷售和其他功能的影響

    • 所有發表的文章的動作,必需由已登記的會員進行,不能透過匿名方式張貼文章

    • “討論區”必需建立完成,方能讓會員進行討論

    • 討論區沒有限制主題和文章的數量,但當中的資料將佔據資料庫和您的可用硬碟空間,所以應定時刪除過舊的文章以節省儲存空間

    • 管理員不應發表或回覆違法、欺詐、中傷、誹謗、淫褻、色情、褻瀆、恐嚇、污穢、討厭、令人反感或其他不良或過分的資訊

    • 我們不會對討論區的文章內容提供支援或維護服務,當中包含的文章與我們無關,若文章內容導致任何法律責任或損失,均由業務擁有者承擔

  • PHPwiki

    PHPwiki


    PhpWiki is a WikiWikiWeb clone in PHP. A WikiWikiWeb is a site where anyone can edit the pages through an HTML form. Multiple storage backends, dynamic hyperlinking, themeable, scriptable by plugins, full authentication, ACL's.

    A WikiWikiWeb is a web site where anyone can edit the pages through an HTML form. Linking is done automatically on the server side; all pages are stored in a database. This may sound rather simplistic, but a Wiki is a very unique way to collaborate on the Web. I set up a few while working at the New York Times on the Web, and the technical staff really took to them in a big way. They wrote 500 pages in just a few months (all to document the internal systems). The addictive quality of a Wiki is that making pages is as simple as making a link to them. If they don't yet exist, the page link will be followed by a hyperlinked question mark; follow that link and you can define the new page. With this setup, you can update and create pages from anywhere there is a web browser handy. Visit the PhpWiki here at Sourceforge. You can try it out yourself! Installation of PhpWiki is as simple as untarring the source distribution. PhpWiki works right out of the box. You will want to make configuration changes later for better performance and permanence, or to run PhpWiki off a relational database like MySQL, mSQL or Postgresql.
