Resolving Sound Card Problems

Can you still remember the first Apple computer called the Apple I? It is the brainchild of Steve Jobs and his good friend Steve Wozniak. Jobs and Wozniak hand-built the first ever personal computer kit in the garage of Jobs’ house. It has a motherboard, CPU and RAM and can only do a limited number of functions which makes it far less superior than the personal computers that we come to know now.Thanks to technology, personal computers now are more than just for typing text and doing other word processing applications. With the personal computer, we can surf the web, play video games, watch movies, listen to music and more.
In fact more and more users are using their Personal Computer as their multimedia device where they build libraries of songs and movies. For this reason, the sound card of a computer plays an important role for the PC to fully function as a multimedia unit.
So what if the sound card of your PC suddenly stops working? What steps would you do to troubleshoot the problem? There can be a number of reasons why your PC suddenly loses its sound function. It can be because of recent software or operating system update,...

The Decline of Civility in Email

Is it just my imagination or have the last couple of years seen a complete abandonment of the rules of basic professional civility in the way people treat one another in business correspondence? In my youth, I remember my parents' generation were readers of a popular etiquette coach, whose pseudonymous identity was known as "Miss Manners." Miss Manners was the umpire of polite society, offering her call on appropriate dating behavior, appropriate party behavior, even appropriate funeral behavior. Miss Manners, it turns out, has been very smartly reconceived by The Washington Post. And our need for her has never seemed more dire. Our online behaviors and the tools which facilitate them are changing quickly. There seems to be no universal consensus about what are and aren't appropriate ways to act in the digital channels we use daily. This post attempts to answer what seems like an almost metaphysical question for our age: How can we treat each other with dignity and respect in an era of where our communications channels mask - by their very virtual nature - our essential humanity? I seem most bothered by email decorum lately. I am witness to a fair number of bad behaviors lately in my...

Interview with a Computer Technician

I am a computer technician in the music/retail industry and have worked in this field for the past 15 years. My job is to troubleshoot, develop and program websites. One common misunderstanding involving my field of work is that just because I am a computer technician, I am not solely working with computer hardware or even software.On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rank my job an 8. At times, there can be a lot of pressure to get a certain job completed. My ranking would be higher if the end users would give me more information regarding the errors they experience because then I could get the problems solved more quickly and be less stressed.I do enjoy working with computers. I feel that it is my calling to the extent that this is what I have been called to do, at least for the moment. If I could have more contact with internationals, or even be in another country, I think I could be in my true calling, but I'm content in what I do now.I do not have a degree; everything I have learned in this field has been self-taught and experience-driven. In fact, when looking for...

7 Tips for Hosting a Professional Webinar

Webinar hosting gives you the opportunity to meet with people from anywhere else in the world from the convenience of your own computer.

All your hard work with marketing, promoting, planning, and researching for your event won’t do a bit of good if  the audience isn’t satisfied. You might choose a system for web conferencing. This can help take some of the stress off you as the host. Interactive features for Q&A sessions, live chat, connections to social media networks like Facebook and Twitter, and other easy to use perks help make the webinar a more fun event as well. When I hosted my first webinar, I was sure that my performance was just fine. Watching the recorded playback showed me ways I could improve when hosting future events. In hopes of saving you from suffering the same fate, here are some of the things that I have learned from the experience of both hosting and attending webinars. 1. Be prepared physically.
