How to Protect Your Data with an Online Backup Solution

in Article/Fun/Internet/Review/Tutorial by

If you run your own business then it is absolutely essential that you back up the contents of your PC / network. Even if you’re using your PC socially, you should still be looking to back up files. Your hard drive or server (if you’re running a network) stores all of your data, operating system, your software applications and your personal files.

If you’re running a small home based business then you’re probably operating a PC rather than a bunch of networks on a PC, if this is the case they you have to be aware of the possibility of hard drive failure.

With the amount of Malware circulating online reaching an all time high, virus’ are the most common cause of hard drive failure. If your hard disc on your PC or server become infected then you can lose data. Every should set up restore points (a previous state to retrieve your data).

If you’re running your business from a single PC or laptop, it isn’t difficult to back up your data. You can purchase an external hard drive relatively cheaply, which you can copy data over to. Alternatively, software can automate the back up process.

However the problem with backing up with an external hard drive is that the hard drive is still going to be physically located in the same place as your PC or Laptop. So, while this will cover you in a situation where the PC or laptop breaks down, in some disaster cases, such as fire or burglary, this form of back up is worthless.

Some Online companies offer back up, which is automated for one or several machines. Online back ups offer all of the features you could desire, such as continuous back ups, back ups of mapped or external drives, versioning (the ability to restore several versions) and top notch security / encryption.

The good point about Online back up is not only that you don’t have to worry about making the back ups yourself, but also that the backed up data is stored in another location on someone else’s facility. The means that in worst case scenario, at least you have the peace of mind that your data is going to be safe.

in Affilliate/clickbank/Internet/Tutorial by

When you join to ClickBank, you can not create your own password.

For security purposes, ClickBank will generate a password for you. Your password is case-sensitive and must be entered in all upper case letters.

IMHO, ClickBank password is strong but hard to remember. In past, you could not change your ClickBank password. Therefore, I need to take note the password and save it in the safety place =)

Many client’s ClickBank have requested the ability to change their ClickBank password. Hmm… me too 🙂

A good news is, ClickBank now added the ability to create our own password. While ClickBank still assigns our initial account password, we can now change our password on the “My Account” page.

Resetting a Forgotten Password

If you have forgotten your password, or would simply like to change it to another password generated by ClickBank, please use the following steps to access your account:

  1. At the ClickBank login page, click the Forgot your password? link. You will be asked to enter your account nickname and the email address currently listed in your ClickBank account (if you do not have access to the email address you registered with please see the information below).
  2. Click Continue to step 2 – a confirmation code is automatically generated and e-mailed to you from notify[at]clickbank.com.
  3. Retrieve the confirmation code, click on the link provided in the email, and enter the code where indicated.
  4. After you click Finish, your new password is confirmed.

Creating Your Own Password

If you would like to set your own password, you must first be logged in to your ClickBank account. Go to the My Account page, located under the Account Settings tab.

On this page, locate the Account Information box, and click the link that says Change Password. Please note that your new password must contain the following characters:

  • 2 upper-case letters (e.g., A, B, C, D…)
  • 2 lower-case letters (e.g., a, b, c, d…)
  • 2 numbers (e.g., 1, 2, 3, 4…)
  • 2 special characters (e.g., !, @, #, $…)

Due to these requirements, your password must be at least 8 characters long, and can be up to 20 characters. Make sure you can remember your password, or write it down somewhere, as ClickBank employees do not have access to your password. If you forget your self-created password, you will need to go through the process detailed above to reset your password.

When you have finished entering your new password, click Change to save your password. After successfully changing your password, you will need to log in again using your new password.

How to Change The Font Face of The Text in AdSense Ad Units

in Adsense/Google/Monetize/Tutorial by

Now, you can now change the font face of the text in ad units on pages in Latin-character languages. Adsense just announce a new feature, Fontastic new options for your ad units.

You can choose between Arial, Times, and Verdana font faces. Please note that while font options will appear in every account, they’ll currently only be applied to ad units on pages primarily in Latin-based characters.

How do I select a new font for my ads?

There are two ways to set custom fonts: across your entire account for all AdSense for content units, or for individual ad units.

To set a custom font as the default for all your AdSense for content units:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Visit your My Account tab.
  3. In the Ad Display Preference section, click edit.
  4. From the drop-down, choose your preferred font and save your changes.

The font settings will be reflected in all your AdSense for content ad units shortly.

To set custom fonts for individual ad units:

If you’re creating a new ad unit, you can choose a custom font while generating your ad code. Alternatively, you can update the font for an existing ad unit, by editing that ad unit through the Manage Ads page.

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Visit your AdSense Setup tab.
  3. If you’re making a new ad unit, choose AdSense for content as the product and continue to modify your settings. If you’re editing an existing ad unit, visit the Manage Ads page and choose your desired AdSense unit.
  4. In the Fonts drop-down, choose whichever font you would prefer.
  5. Make any other changes to your ad unit and save. If you’re creating a new ad unit, your font settings will be visible wherever you add the code for that unit. If you’re editing a saved ad unit, font changes will be visible on your pages in a few moments.

Please note that if you customize the font settings of an individual ad unit, changes you make to your account-wide default font settings will not be applied to that ad unit.

If you’d like to quickly change the font settings for every ad unit generated from your account, visit the “Ad Display Preference” section of your Account Settings page to select a new account-wide font face. This will affect all units you’ve created in the past, regardless of whether you used the Manage Ads feature. By default, your ads are currently set to “Standard AdSense font family”.

Have a great day!

Sshd on Windows

in Tutorial/Windows by

This is a simple tutorial how to run the OpenSSH SSHD server on Windows using Cygwin.

SSH is typically used to log into a remote machine and execute commands, but it also supports tunneling, forwarding arbitrary TCP ports and X11 connections; it can transfer files using the associated SFTP or SCP protocols. SSH uses the client-server protocol.

OpenSSH (SSH1 and SSH2 protocol) with Cygwin can run on Windows, which can be either built from source or installed as a Cygwin native package.

Here we go…

First, we need to install the following Cygwin packages (cygrunsrv and openssh)

Admin --> cygrunsrv
Net --> openssh

Next, open a new bash shell window and run the SSH configure stuff.

ssh-host-config -y

This step will create necessary configuration files, a privilege separation user and necessary directories.

When prompted with “CYGWIN=” type for following:

tty ntsec

Now you are ready to start the service

cygrunsrv -S sshd

Give a try to connect to your ssh server (localhost) with your favorite ssh client, such as PuTTY, Xshell, etc.

That’s it and gud lak!

Here’s a simple way to doing this.

First, select all the messages currently on-screen by clicking the “All” selection option either above or below the message list.

Gmail will now tick the checkbox on all the messages currently on screen. However, you might still have thousands not covered by the current view. Gmail will ask you if you want to select all the conversations, including those out of view.

Gmail Archive 2
