Colocation Server Hosting And Its Advantages

  • Posted on August 9, 2014 at 10:06 pm

Colocation hosting (colo) is when a physical server is situated in a separate location from the clients place of organization. Housing a server needs a great deal of space and can take time away from other business related duties. Colocation servers are housed in facilities often referred to as data centers or warehouses while the server itself is still privately or corporately owned. Facilities that house colocation servers provide a number of security features to their clients.

These security functions can incorporate the server becoming kept in a secured cage or cabinet, a number of security cameras placed inside and outside of the facility, regulated power, secure world wide web connections, support, fire detection, automated extinguishers, filtered power, backup generators, and many connection feeds. These characteristics are put in place for a client to guarantee security and reliability.

Colocation server hosting is among the most expensive kinds of server hosting obtainable. Depending on the hosting firm, support is usually limited or non-existent. Most colocation hosting companies only present a location to secure the server and internet and electrical access. The installation of hardware and software program, downloading updates, and conducting backups is left to the client. When this will be the case the client need to send a system administrator to the colocation facility to fulfill these duties.

Colocation facilities are in existence due to the fact they offer several advantages to clients. This kind of server outsourcing offers a greater quantity of bandwidth to clients. Websites containing lots of data and different applications are able to run faster and much more reliably as a result of higher uptime percentages. This also frees up space on the clients internal network permitting for far more usage. Clients that home servers in colocation facilities enjoy a lot of of the same advantages as those making use of a dedicated server.

Though the client just isn’t in possession of the colo server, they still own it. This indicates the server isn’t shared and only that 1 clients hardware and software program is installed on the device. The client maintains the freedom to use as significantly bandwidth, memory, and disc space as needed and can make configurations on an as required basis with out interference.

Custom Web Design Made Easy By Studio2graphics

  • Posted on August 9, 2014 at 8:47 pm

Creating custom websites that are engaging, dynamic and intuitive. Over the last decade the internet has become a vital part of how business functions. With 74.1% of Americans using the internet
(Nielsen Online) and 74.9% of Canadians (Internet World Stats), there is commanding importance on having a strong web presence. Not only must a company have good seo (Search Engine) web design, but they also must have a custom web design that is perfectly suited to their audience. Custom web design can allude to many areas, but for now we’re going to focus on how to cater the site design to your audience, and create a dynamic and user-friendly site.
Here are four tips for creating a user-friendly custom web design, compiled by Studio2 Design, a custom web design company who develops a variety of sites for companies in Canada and the United States.
1. Page Load Time
Gone are the days of slowly loading splash pages. Instead, a progressive custom web design company incorporates large eye catching headers that draw the user into the site. Flash animation can still be a nice touch if its used in a professional and relaxed manner. To keep your audience happy, use Flash sparingly and intuitively (i.e. for elements of the site, but not the whole site design).
2. Navigation Ease
Users like to get where they need to go fast. For this reason, make sure you have multiple navigation areas. This could be achieved by having the main links along the top, with a full link navigation bar along the bottom. Highlight other links within the text and on side bars (i.e. links to recent updates, news, etc). Studio2 Wedding Design achieves this by use of text and image links:
3. Typography
Good typography is for both function and design. First make sure the main body type is large enough for your audience, and that the chosen typeface is easily readable (sans serif typefaces are good choices for web use i.e. arial). When hiring a custom web design company look how they utilize typography to add to the site design. New custom web design company trends are to have the typography function as art on the site (i.e. slab, script and hand written typefaces as part of the header illustration i.e. ).
4. Interactivity
To keep your site visitor from leaving, and to have them come back, interactivity is very important. Forums, articles, blogs and tutorials are good ways to achieve this. Keeping your site content dynamic and engaging helps make your site ‘sticky’ and drives your visitors back.
A simple way to add further interactivity is by a contact form. Recent custom web design company strategy is to place this form on the main page to ensure the best possible return.

Resolving Jet_errlvcorrupted Error In Exchange Server

  • Posted on August 9, 2014 at 7:19 pm

Microsoft Exchange Server database engine splits a column into several parts, when it finds it too large and thus, the Long-values (LVs) are created. These structures are stored in a different B-Tree (binary tree) of the associated table, each with a unique long-value ID. Each of these LVs has a specific header, called LVROOT, consisting of information, like reference count and length of LV. In some cases, this LVROOT can get overwritten (usually because of a defective B-split operation), which eventually results into corruption of LV. This can cause Information Store to stop, errors accessing LV and/or database corruption. To repair the database, you should restore from a suitable backup. If no valid backup is present, you need to apply an Exchange Repair solution.

To illustrate such problems, suppose you attempt to perform offline defragmentation of an Exchange database. But the operation fails with an error message as below:

Operation terminated with error -1526 (JET_errLVCorrupted, Corruption encountered in long-value tree) after seconds

Further, when you execute eseutil /g command to check the integrity of the database, it reports the database as corrupted.


The above error occurs due to corruption in LV tree. This can exist in conjunction with orphaned LVs.


You should first check for the backup. If present and valid, restore from it. In other case, you need to implement the given sequence of steps to solve this issue:

1. Run eseutil /g with /v and /x parameters for detailed output and examine it for the cause (error, orphaned or corrupted)

2. If the LVs are corrupted, you can run eseutil /p command. But make sure you backup the database first as this causes corrupted data to delete

3. If the LVs are corrupted and orphaned both, you should execute eseutil /d to perform database defragmentation after the repair.

Eseutil /p is a hard command. So, for safe EDB Repair, you need to use a third-party database repair tool. An Exchange Server Repair tool uses intensive, yet safe, scanning algorithms to repair and restore a corrupted Exchange database, while providing an interactive user interface.

Stellar Phoenix Mailbox Exchange Recovery is an effective solution that repairs a corrupted Exchange database and restores it to a user-specified location. The safe Exchange Server Repair solution extracts all user mailboxes as individual .pst files. The tool supports Exchange Server 5.5, 2000, and 2003. It is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000.

Current Political News Monitoring In Real-time, Art or Science

  • Posted on August 9, 2014 at 2:55 pm

There is something about human nature which makes us want to prioritize information by how recent it is, and that is the fundamental appeal of real time news monitoring. The difference between real time monitoring and regular news distribution is that real time taps into consciousness. That is why it so potent. You experience the world in real time./p>

Like a moth to the flame, we are drawn in by the attraction of the freshest information but when we get too much of it, we’re overwhelmed with the banality of everything by everybody at the same time. It’s like watching 20 movies all at once – perfect resolution saturates the senses.

What we really want is a way to zero in on the patterns that matter. Like the proverbial early bird, when you get fresh information that’s relevant and actionable, you can go further and faster on less. How do you monitor the hourly hum and look for emerging patterns in tracking current political news before they become obvious? That problem is as old as the weather forecaster trying to predict the coming of spring weather (without the ground hog of course) or the next Gordon Gekko parsing the financial news wires for tips.

When does gossip become news? In the financial industry you need to strike the right balance between moving on privileged information. If only a few people know something, it’s not going to move a stock – it has to be common knowledge in order for the masses to place their bets. In politics news, sometimes rumors become facts permanently unless there is a collective effort to clarify and set the record straight, and that still does not always work (see President Barack Obama and country of birth).

Finding relevant emerging patterns before they become trends that are the challenge. I’ve said it before, better filters is the next great algorithm war. We’ve all become enamored with twitter search which we all know is imperfect and self-selecting but compelling nonetheless. I think we’ll also find that getting real-time alerting right on a broader scale is going to be more art and less science.

Influentials Network was founded around the question of, “can you track and analyze consciousness, or can you only watch it pass by?” It is clear to us that in order to make sense of all the current political news and chatter, it needs to be ranked by order of importance as well as by time. That is what we try to do.

Teacher’s Guide To Science Fair Projects – Scientific Questions

  • Posted on August 9, 2014 at 5:12 am

Developing a lesson plan for science fair project units is easy to do. To start with you need to focus on a specific skill that is used for science fair project development. In this lesson plan you will be focusing on the utilization of scientific questions to come up with a topic for a project. This is one of the first lesson plans that you will need to develop for your science fair project module.

Goals and Objectives

Every lesson plan needs to start out by identifying the goals and objectives for the lesson plan. In this case the goals and objectives will be to introduce the concepts of scientific questions and project topics. After completing this lesson plan students will be able to come up with their own scientific questions and they will also be able to use their questions to select a topic for their own science fair project.

Introductory Information

At the beginning of your scientific question lesson you will need to introduce them of asking scientific questions. This can be done by first playing a round of 20 questions. This game is a great primer for what the students will be doing to find a topic for their science fair project. After playing the game of 20 questions you can talk about how scientists use questions to identify what needs to be researched or what angles you can take to find solutions to a scientific problem. Make sure you provide specific examples of scientists and the questions that they asked.

Guided Study

The next step is complete a guided study project. This activity will involve a series of 5 minute brainstorming sessions where students will be asked to come up with s many scientific questions as possible about a topic that you give them. For example, you may give your students the topic of renewable energy and have them brainstorm questions about this topic for five minutes. After each session you will write down the questions on the board to show how many different questions can be developed for one topic.

Homework Activity

For homework, you will ask each student to select a topic and to come up with 15 to 20 questions about that topic. These questions will be used to come up with a topic for the student’s science fair project in a later lesson.
