Brief History of the Internet

Destiny Viator

The original ARPANET grew into the Internet. Internet was based on the idea that there would be multiple independent networks of rather arbitrary design, beginning with the ARPANET as the pioneering packet switching network, but soon to include packet satellite networks, ground-based packet radio networks and other networks. The Internet as we now know it embodies a key underlying technical idea, namely that of open architecture networking. In this approach, the choice of any individual network technology was not dictated by a particular network architecture but rather could be selected freely by a provider and made to interwork with the other networks through a meta-level “Internetworking Architecture”. Up until that time there was only one general method for federating networks. This was the traditional circuit switching method where networks would interconnect at the circuit level, passing individual bits on a synchronous basis along a portion of an end-to-end circuit between

How to Add Gadgets Back to Windows 8 and 10 (and Why You Probably Shouldn’t)

Destiny Viator

Desktop gadgets and the Windows Sidebar were a big hallmark feature in Windows Vista and Windows 7. But Microsoft removed desktop gadgets, and you won’t find them in Windows 8 or 10.

Windows Desktop Gadgets Were Discontinued Because They’re a Security Risk

There’s a reason these were discontinued in Windows 8 and 10: Microsoft’s desktop gadget platform has a variety of security problems. That’s not just our opinion–that’s what Microsoft says.

Microsoft’s official security advisory on the subject explains two big problems. First, Microsoft says it’s aware of legitimate desktop gadgets that contain security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers. Attackers could exploit a vulnerability in a gadget to gain control over your entire computer, if you’re signed on as a user account with administrator privileges.

Second, your computer could be compromised if an attacker creates a malicious gadget and gets you to install it. Install a gadget and

What is computer? – Definition from WhatIs.com

Destiny Viator

A computer is a device that accepts information (in the form of digitalized data) and manipulates it for some result based on a program, software, or sequence of instructions on how the data is to be processed.

Complex computers include the means for storing data (including the program, which is also a form of data) for some necessary duration. A program may be invariable and built into the computer hardware (and called logic circuitry as it is on microprocessors) or different programs may be provided to the computer (loaded into its storage and then started by an administrator or user). Today’s computers have both kinds of programming.

Major types of computers

Analog computer – represents data by measurable quantities
Desktop computer – a personal computer that fits on a desk and is often used for business or gaming
Digital computer – operates with numbers expressed as digits

Can’t Connect to the Internet? These 10 Tips Can Help

Destiny Viator

Lifewire / Theresa Chiechi
  1. Action

    • Ensure your wired or wireless network hardware is switched on and plugged in.
  2. Rule Out False Alarms. What may seem to be a network problem connecting to the Internet is sometimes simply a website (or whatever server is on the other end of the connection) being temporarily offline.

    Action

    • Before assuming your internet connection is faulty, try visiting several popular Web sites rather than just one.
  3. Avoid IP Address Conflicts. If your computer and another on the network both have the same IP address, the conflict between them will prevent either from working properly online.

    Action

  4. Check for Computer Firewall Malfunctions. Firewall software running on most computers is intended to prevent unwanted network traffic from disrupting its operation. Unfortunately, these software firewalls can malfunction and start blocking valid Internet traffic. When two software firewalls, such as Windows Firewall plus a third-party product,
