Joomla 3 Part A

Epsilon Weblog

This is the 1st in a blog post series on Joomla 3 based on what I learn on the video training program by Addison-Wesley Professional. Joomla is a content management system and is more customizable than WordPress and easier to use than Drupal  which are also both CMS’s. The WordPress program started out as a blogging software and Joomla too has lots of blogging features. Joomla is free although you usually pay hosting fees. It’s based around a program called Mambo also a CMS although it has become much more popular. Version 3.0 is the latest version. They update it frequently. You also can use a FTP program to upload it but its not essential. You don’t need to understand HTML which you would if using Dreamweaver or WordPress. You use MySQL & PHP with Joomla.

Pocket app for Chrome

Ibrahim El Merehbi

Being very fond of Pocket (formerly Read It Later) (Android app) I wanted to have Pocket available on my desktop. And so I installed the Pocket add-on for Firefox and the Pocket extension for Chrome to easily save any article.

I have also been waiting for an offline Pocket app for Chrome and I finally found out that there was one released on August 2013.

In this post I share a tip I use to launch Pocket and start reading in no time. Instead of opening Chrome then navigating to the Apps tab and launching Pocket, I resorted to creating a shortcut of Pocket on my desktop.

How to speed up your computer using Google Drive as extra RAM

Serious Severity

A friend sent me this and if you understand it, let me know because it’s too much for me. I don’t want you to explain it, just let me know if you get it…

RAM is expensive, and no one’s got time for that. This tutorial will show you how to use a free service, Google Drive, as extra RAM for your computer, freeing it up to run up to 32x faster (or 64x faster if you’re on a 64-bit station).

Before you begin, make sure your computer is in liquid crystal display and that you have the proper user access control for manipulating your processor’s database constructor. If you’re using a standardized copper bitflipper, you may need to also install the Google Drive WinAPI SDK to proc an instance of a PHP decoder for the software’s motherboard to cryptographically visualize.

When you’re ready to go, spin up a hybrid Heroku…

Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Part A

Epsilon Weblog

I am doing a new series of blog posts on Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 which is based on what I have learnt doing the infinite skills video training course on the same subject. We are going to start with a bit of history. The first version of what we might regard as this was Exchange 4.0 in 1996 and there were earlier versions but they were for desktops. This was the first server version. Exchange 5.0 ran on NT4 and would integrate with a program called Outlook 97. Exchange 5.5 was a major upgrade and was much more reliable than previous versions. In some places you still see this version still being used. With Exchange 2000 email and network accounts were merged. Exchange 2010 was 64 bit only. Exchange 2013 supports upto 8TB of RAM. There is a standard edition that supports upto 5 mounted databases and an enterprise edition…
