   Frequently Asked Questions

1. Security on the internet Online Shopping it not something new, many companies today offer the ease of using your credit card over the internet. The question that so many of us have asked is, "Is It Safe To Give Out Credit Card Information Over The Internet." We have heard about hackers who can intercept your credit card information. If you are like me giving your credit card to others not intended is not something I want to do.

A system that was originally designed by Netscape and now others use a SSL Secure Socket Layer. This security helps protect you from impostors, eavesdroppers, and vandals that might otherwise access your information as it travels from one computer to another

A key or lock icon at the bottom of your browser suggests that you are on a page that is secure. You can also check this out by using the security button in your menu bar. This command will let you know if the present page that you are on is safe for private information.

2. How does the Internet Work? The internet was designed to carry information from one computer to another somewhere else in the world. The idea was that if one direction of computers failed the information would find another path to follow until it reached its original target. As individual computer users we type email then press the send button. The information will travel from your computer to next doors computer to their next door and so on until it arrives at the original destination. If no security is used to encrypt the original message then your next door neighbor and their next door and so on can intercept and read that email. With encryption your email is now in a code only the computer to actually receive it has the decoder. That means that your neighbor can not read your email, and his next door and so on. This is why it is important to watch what you send over the internet. If its not encrypted don't send credit card numbers or other personal information that you do not want the world to see as well.

3. What is the benefit of a SSL Server? The older browser Internet Explorer 2.0 and Netscape 2.0 had limited encryption for sending secure documents over the internet. with the start of Version 3.0 encryption was set at a standard of 40 RCA which meant that a mathematical calculation could crack your code within eight years. With the speed increase of computers those calculations were being made quicker then eight years. The government would only allow banks to use a 128 encryption which could take over a million years to crack. Today the government has allowed anyone who registers their name with a registry to obtain the 128 codes.some ISP offer the code to their customers for protection. Other encryption codes and software are being created that would out do the present system. But still the use of credit over the internet still is of common sense. Make sure you know who you are dealing with, before hitting that submit button.

4. VISA and Master Card on the internet is it safe? Use common sense when using your credit card on the internet. Check out who you are dealing with. If your not sure about who your doing business with then, you may want to think twice. your credit card company will stand behind your purchases over the internet. If there is a grave difference between the charge and what you see on your credit card bill. Report it immediately to the credit card that you are using and they will settle the difference for you. You are responsible for using your credit card wisely still.

5. Advertising on the Internet and its benefits. Advertising starts with good planning. Know who your targeting audience will be. Logos and color will make an ever lasting impression. Include your web address on everything, such as business cards, letter heads and other print materials.

6. Who can benefit from selling off the internet? Selling off the internet has become common after watching companies like Amazon books do so well. However, like many new companies success does not happen over night. What do you want to sell? Will it be just information, or do you have a product to sell. Information sites can encourage sales from your business. How will your product be bought from your customers. E-commerce is opening the doors to on - line credit card shopping. One day everyone will shop on - line.

7. What is in a domain name? www.waymorewebs.com The domain tells you who owns the site. The "www" indicates world wide web the domain is waymorewebs, the com is commercial. After the domain the rest tells the browser where to find the pages you need. Every page on the internet has an address. A domain name gives you ownership and freedom to register your web site with any server.

8. Where is the internet heading in our future. Advancements in faster modems increase download times. More images like video VR, animations, flash animations, video conferences, and selling are fast becoming todays achievements. Tomorrow we will see two or three dimensional sites. Interaction web sites ask and receive on line. Paying bills and banking, buy food and clothing and even a car. The internet is another tool to express yourself and will continue to grow as long as we continue to create.

9. Are there any restrictions on the internet. "YES", We are trying to protect our young children from propaganda, pornography, corruption, and sexual predictor t. It is assumed that you are eighteen or older when using a credit card on the internet. Services such as "Adult Check" will not allow entrance without registering and paying a membership fee. The credit card is entered but a signature is not required. The government has talked about placing restrictions on what can go onto the internet. This practice however would have to be as a cooperative with the world wide, which is unlikely. The true restrictions are presently left to those that use the internet. parents monitor the children, some software will allow access to certain sites. Some ISP offer family net again filtering out the adult contents from the internet. The use of common sense when your children are using the internet is a good rule of thumb.

News  (2008) Police and other law enforcement around the world have joined forces through computers to monitor the internet and corruption. Great Progress has been made to keep the internet a safer place for all who daily use it.

(9b) (New March 19, 2007) Changes to the World Wide Web


Making Sense of TECH NO-BABBLE

Bubble Jet is Canons term for an ink jet. uses similar technology as HP uses in their ink jets.

CD Recordable (CD-R) A CD capable of holding 650 MB of data. That date can be in the form of
music,mp3,mpeg or Avi, Quick time and text. This type of media can only be recorded on once.

CD ReWritable (CD-RW) Similar to the CD recordable except that the CD disc is capable of being
record on several times. This is good for backing up accounting or daily back ups.

CD-ROM most of the software ( exception is DVD and floppies) we get for our computers are CD ROM. These disc contain information or programing. You can not save or write data to this disc.

DVD-RAM This is like the CD- R in that it can be recorded to. However, the nice thing about a DVD is that its potential to hold up to 11 GB of data. The first writable DVD machines wrote 2.6 GB to one side, however you can write to both sides for a total of 5.2 GB. The latest writable DVD machines will do 4.7 on one side and a total of 9.2 GB On Apples G4 some DVD Ram drives can store up to 9.4 GB.

CPU (Central Processing Unit) The main center or brain of the computer. A chip set also known as a RSIC for macintosh, Intel, AMD. Often referred to as the processor in the computer.

Driver Allows the printer to communicate with the computer. Every piece of hardware comes with a cd of a driver to run it.

Digital Video (DV) Video that uses digital and is able to be copied several times without degradation of picture and sound quality.

FireWire is Apples version, is also known as IEEE-1394 and by Sony the iLink. Information can be transferred between computer and DV camera or scanner at the present rate of 400 Mbps. Second generation is suppose to be able to transfer up to 800 Mbps of data information.

Gigabyte (GB) One Billion bytes of data information

GUI (Graphic User Interface) it allows the mouse to point and click

Hard Drive is made up of many steel disc which are capable of storing data. These steel disc can be erased and written to many times. Some hard drives have a life expectance of three to five years on average.

Hardware This would be things like a printer, scanner, modem, jazz or zip, This is the physical parts of the computer. This also includes ram, hard drive, and cd player.

IEEE 1394 See Fire Wire above

iLink developed by Sony is the same idea as Fire Wire.

InkJet A low cost color printer. this printer uses a fine mist to create a sharp and picture perfect image and text.

Laser Printer Uses a black colored toner to produce a high quality text and image. For professional use and several thousands of dollars lasers can print in color. Some lasers printers use an array of diodes and solid inks.

Megabyte (MB) Contains one million bytes of data information.

Megapixel refers to image quality. The more pixel you have the sharper the image. In scanners the term 600 by 1200 dpi or dots per inch. Digital still cameras are referred to as 1 megapixel camera. The more the better the image and we are now seeing 3 and 4 megapixel camera coming to a retail store near you.

Mini-DV Digital Video and the mimi is a format type. We use to use an analog tape which when copied would create a degrade in each copy. With DV the image is as good as the first. Any degrade would be hardly noticed.

Monitor A screen that allows for image data to be presented to be viewed. How about a really good quality television with out a tuner. Is able to present true RGB (Red / Green / Blue ) colors often with a sharpness of .22 dpi to blurry stuff of .38. For the purpose of saving your eyes from eye strain look the lowest number when buying your monitor. The lower the dpi the more this monitor will cost you but it is worth every penny.

Mp Player A storage electronic device which can play audio, files. Files are compressed and play is a high quality sound in steoro.

Photoshop Plug ins Is a Photoshop Are programs written to enhance larger programs like Adobe PhotoShop. But these plug ins can be used for other software programs like flash player. The browser that you are using uses them to help you view other media.

Pixel (Picture Element) One tiny part of an image. Using many pixels will create a sharp color rich if in color picture.

Power PC A CPU based on the RISC technology. Was jointly developed by Apple, IBM, and Motorola.

RAM (Random Access Memory) The more ram that your computer has the more application can be opened at the same time. The faster images and text will download from your internet connection. Ram will hold instructional data information. A good example is typing a story on your computer. The story is stored in ram memory until you save it to the hard drive. Ram only works when there is electric power going to them. If you turn off your computer before saving to your hard drive the story "will" be lost.

Refresh Rate Measured in HZ. This is the amount of time that each horizontal line on the monitor is redrawn per second. The higher the Hz number the clear the image on your monitor. Monitors use to refresh at 60 Hz but some people had experienced seizures so today most monitors run at 75 Hz and faster.

RSIC (Reduced Instruction Set Computing) Is an advanced processor architecture that provides greatly increased performance,

SCSI (scuzzy- Small Computer Systems Interface) Was common found on all Macintosh computers prior to 1999. Used to provide high - speed access to peripheral devices. Most commonly connected scanner, Jazz drives and CD Writers to the computer.

Software Also known as a program. A program which allows the computer to complete a task. Some programs commonly used would be a word program, or a game, accounting, web designing or using a program to create art or clip art.

Speed Often is used to indicate how fast your computer is. Is measured in Mhz so far. Computers today are running up to one GB for the home user. After the year end we will be seeing faster computers running CPU with some form of coolant to keep them from melting down. Don't for get to have the fire hose ready just in case you do have a melt down.

Terabyte Is the same as one trillion bytes of data.

USB (Universal Serial Bus) Has allowed for the Window and Mac platform to share the same hardware by connecting a similar cable.
