|Business / Re: Timber And Cashew Export In Nigeria by babytejiri(m): 6:51pm On Jan 29|
As the human population continues to increase, the demand for forest products and the conversion of forest land to agriculture land continually increases worldwide (Taylor, Green and Stout, 2005:333). Trees are harvested for multiple uses ranging from timber to woodfuel. Forest lands are also continually cleared to provide space for settlements resulting to higher rates of forest removal which currently exceeds the rate of forest renewal

Getting Information About People and Internet Hosts by Using Finger
Finger was one of the early Internet services that allowed you to find out about computers or people on the Internet. If you “finger” the host name of the computer, you get information about that computer. If you finger an e-mail address, you see information about that person.
What Finger Reports
For example, if you finger the host computer iecc.com you might see the following
|Computers / Re: How To Connect To A Cisco Router Using Windows 7 And Vista. by babytejiri(m): 12:47am On Jan 27|
To connect to the Cisco switch, use a rolled Ethernet cable to connect a host to a switch console serial communication port. Once you have the correct cable connected from your PC to the Cisco switch, you can start HyperTerminal to create a console connection and configure the device as follows:
1. Open HyperTerminal by clicking on start button and then All programs, then Accessories, then Communication, then click on HyperTerminal. Enter a name for the connection. It is irrelevant what you name it. Then click OK.
2. Choose the communication port either COM1 or COM2, whichever is open on your PC.
3. Now at the port settings. The default values (2400bps and no flow control hardware) will not work, you must set the port settings as shown in the figure below.
Notice that the bit rate is set to 9600 and the flow control is set to none. At this point click OK and press the Enter key, and you should be connected to your Cisco switch console port.
Here's the 2950 switch's initial output:
--- System Configuration Dialog ---
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [Yes/no]: no
Press RETURN to get started!
00:04:53: %LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface Vlan1, changed state to administratively down
00:04:54: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Vlan1, changed state to down
The switch> prompt is called the user exec mode and it's mostly used to view statistics. You can only view and change configuration of a Cisco switch in privileged exec mode which you get into with the enable command.
The global configuration mode can be entered from the privileged mode by using the configure terminal command or config t for short.
Switch# config t
Enter the configuration commands, one per line, End with CNTL/Z.
Switch(config)# hostname zenith
The hostname command is used in naming the switch. The hostname of a switch is only locally significant but it's still helpful to set a hostname on a switch so that you can identify the switch when connecting to it.
|Programming / Re: Bash Shell Vulnerability Affects Linux,unix And Mac OS X by babytejiri(m): 6:38am On Jan 26|
Before you can narrow your search for a web hosting service, the single biggest decision facing you is the type of operating system you are interested in. This decision alone will narrow the field down of potential provider significantly, and narrow down the packages you will be researching and comparing.
In general, there are several major criteria used when selecting and web hosting service, and these are all impacted by the operating system:
Traditionally UNIX was the hosting service of choice due to its advantage in these four areas, but the gap between the two big operating systems as a hosting choice continues to close and get blurred quite often. Here is a breakdown of where they stand today:
UNIX systems still tend to win in this area, due to several key factors - memory (RAM) requirements and OS tune ability. Windows was developed as an operating system to make it easy for wide range of people to use, from the highly skilled to the less computer inclined. UNIX was developed more for server usage, and the average skilled computer person would not be able to use and manage this OS on a daily basis. Because of this difference in background, UNIX will perform better as a server than a Windows box on the same hardware - Windows needs more RAM to compete with UNIX, but UNIX will still beat it out due to its ability to tune virtually everything, down the very core of the OS itself.
Let me be clear about this, I am not saying that UNIX is a better OS than Windows, just that it is a better performing hosting environment. Windows beats UNIX out in usability, development tools, maintainability, and many other areas.
But don't stop reading here - performance is the least of your concerns when choosing a web hosting service. Because you will most likely be choosing a shared hosting environment, you have very little control over the resources of the machine as related to your hosted website - you will be sharing memory, hard drive access, CPU, and network bandwidth with hundreds of other websites anyway. At any given moment in time one of the other websites might be spiking in activity and cause your website to response slowly.
In a virtual private server or a dedicated server, UNIX would be the best choice in the performance category, but in a shared environment the gap is not a factor.
Both Windows and UNIX come fully loaded with a wide range of features, and quite a few are shared between the two. If you were to manage the machine directly, you would most like choose Windows due to its easier to use interface. But this is not the case when speaking of a web hosting account. All hosting companies use a control panel to allow users to manage their account and websites, and all of the control panels are web based, and many are cross-platform. All of these control panels are identical in functionality - they provide a web user interface to all of the underlying OS, web server, and files on the hosting service. Both operating systems support remote access (UNIX with telnet/SSH shell, Windows with Remote Desktop) and ftp file management as well.
The biggest difference in features between the two operating systems is the development tools available. Both support the major scripting languages used to create websites such as PHP, PERL, Python, Ruby, and Java. Both support extensions popular for adding to websites such as ColdFusion, FrontPage Extensions, Flash, etc. Both have support for the free MySQL database, which usually resides on a separate machine at the hosting company anyway. Windows has the advantage here in that is supports ASP, ASP.Net, ASP MVC, and MSSQL databases as well. These are tools specific to some applications and may be a major requirement for you - obviously making this decision between the two operating systems easy. Most Windows based web hosting packages will offer, at some price point, unlimited MySQL databases with unlimited disk space, but limited MSSQL databases with limited disk space. This is due to the licensing requirements of MSSQL causing more expenses on the part of the web hosting service as the use more MSSQL databases for their customers. MySQL and MSSQL are virtually identical in performance and features - just like the operating systems they differ mainly in the area of price and management abilities.
UNIX does have a slight advantage in many of the scripting languages due to its ability to compile into the web server (Apache, open source) the extensions needed to run the scripting languages. Windows cannot due this with its web server (IIS) since it is a commercially sold application. Windows and IIS must run most of the scripting languages as a CGI extension, which means they are launched as an external process to the web server, requiring slightly more startup overhead each time they are needed. Microsoft has acknowledged this shortcoming with the latest IIS (version 7) and allows these scripting extensions to be more in process. In the big picture it does not make much difference either way since this is really getting back into the area of performance - refer back to the prior discussion performance as to why it is of not much importance in a shared hosting environment.
UNIX has a slight advantage in available installable applications - most of the open source website projects (blogs, content management systems, shopping carts, web site builders) install smoother under UNIX since they assume you are using other open source tools (Linux, MySQL, Apache). Installing some of these on a Windows operating system require extra configuration or help from the web hosting support staff. With the growth of cross platform control panels, this problem is shrinking over time. Also there are Windows specific open source projects available for every need of your website that install clean and function nicely - but they may be younger and less developed than the UNIX counterpart.
UNIX has traditionally and still shines in the area of stability - again due to its background of being developed as a server operating system. It also has advantages over Windows in that complete server reboots are rarely needed as part of a installation of a third party software package - it has clearly defined system component drivers that can be rebooted without requiring a complete system reboot.
