Computer Safety Rules

techno19

Do computers interest you? Have you ever just had the urge to open one’s case and mess around with it? This is natural as they are very intriguing machines, and they are all around us. Sometimes it is hard to get through a full day without using a computer at some point in the day. But if you are dealing with computer hardware, precaution is necessary in
order to keep yourself and your computer’s components safe. There are some procedures that are recommended when removing and installing parts. Just like any other machine, there are always dangers when working with one. Here is a list of some computer safety rules to keep in mind.

1) Wear an anti-static wrist strap when handling a computer’s internal parts. Snap it around your wrist and connect the clip to a metal area of the computer case. This grounds you so that harmful electricity will not transfer between your hand and the parts you touch. Even fairly small amounts of electricity can cause costly damages to your machine.

2)Turn off and unplug the computer before working on it. This may be obvious to some, however, it is very important. Not only could you damage the components, but you could also injure yourself. So turn it off, unplug it, and then push the on button to allow any stored electricity to dissipate.

3)Use anti-static mats. Anti-static mats help prevent electrical current transfer from the floor(or other surface) to the computer. This is especially important if your computer is on a carpet. So just put the anti-static mat on the surface you are going to work on your computer and place the computer on top.

4) Clean your computer on a regular basis. Dust builds up on computer hardware and can cause the components to retain heat while they run. Over time, this can overheat the parts and cause them to malfunction or breakdown altogether. So it would be wise to dust your computer’s interior on a regular basis, being careful not to get any liquid on or touch any internal components too much. Just remember, if you are vacuuming out your computer, do not use any vacuum that would create an electrostatic charge, as this could damage the components. There are tool made specifically for cleaning electronics.

5) Also, make sure you never take power supplies apart. You really do not want to deal with them as they are the most dangerous part in your system. This list can and should be added to. Though it is a good start, in no way is it all-inclusive. You can never be too cautious when working with electronics. And unless you are an experienced user, you may want to hire a professional to install and maintain your computer’s components. But if you do decide to work on your computer, make sure to always be
cautious and safe. The potential of hurting yourself or damaging your computer is just not worth being lackadaisical about safety.

Low Level Pc Poisons – Computer Fumes Dust And Gases

techno19

Copyright 2006 Michael Madigan

Did you know computer equipment continually gives out small amounts of different gases and fine dusts? Some people are highly sensitive to these.

Plastic PC components are one source, as most plastics are unstable and break down naturally over time, especially when exposed to ultraviolet light and sunlight. (That’s the reason why they turn yellow and get brittle.)

Another source comes from vapour produced from traces of manufacturing materials slowly evaporating.

The gases and fumes given off are called ‘out-gassing’ and only occur in small amounts. But when the equipment is new, the out-gassing is greater and noticeable even to people who aren’t particularly sensitive.

This is similar to the smell that we get when we first get into a new car – out-gassing from the vinyl, plastic carpet and hard plastic interiors, as well as the wiring.

A new computer has a similar smell. So to some extent you can avoid outgassing, at least of ‘new’ volatile components, by buying a good quality ‘used’ PC.

Other office materials, particuliarly new furnishings, may also outgas – chipboard contains phenolic resins, which release trace amounts of formaldehyde; also carpeting (especially foam padding), paint and fabrics give off obnoxious chemicals when new.

People who have been sensitized (by previous exposure) may react badly to even very tiny amounts of these gases, by getting headaches, dizziness, and respiratory problems. The problems may persist even when the original cause is reduced, or disappears. In such a case it’s wise to seek qualified medical advice.

Casings may also be contaminated by fine brominated phenolic dust originally put on as a fire retardant, which can be blown out by fans, circulation or movement.

The best solutions are :-

– Initally, to run any new equipment in an empty well ventilated room to allow most of the outgassing to occur before use.

– Always work in a room with good ventilation and avoid continual high room temperaturesoutgassing will increase as the temperature rises.

Laser printers emit a lot of toner dust, which contains carbon and solvents, and quite a few people are sensitive to it. You can smell it when the printer is on, and especially on freshly printed-paper. You may notice wheeziness, coughing, and sneezing.

People working at copy centers and service bureaus often suffer from headaches, and toner dust is the main suspect. NCR paper (‘carbonless’ paper) can also cause wheeziness.

Good ventilation, drawing air away from the operator and filtering out particles, will help reduce these reactions, but effective ventilation in a commercial or home office is sometimes hard to achieve, especially in sealed buildings.

You can try going outdoors and breathing deeply for 10 minutes every hour or so. Open doors, maybe have a fan on., and avoid routine (multiple) photocopying every single document.

Think long term. Removing even mild poisons from your environment is yet another way to keep safe, stay fitter at the PC and enjoy a healthy computing career!

Benefits Of Computer-assisted Instruction

techno8

Computer-based instruction and educational activities have been a part of high school level curricula for some time, but the primary grades have adopted these techniques a little slower. However, the adoption of technological learning activities will increase sharply over the next few years. Experts disagree on the single most important driving factor, but there are clearly a number of distinct advantages to computer-based learning activities over more traditional educational activities. Here are five of the most important.

The pace of instruction concerns everyone involved in the development of educational activities. Parents often worry about their child being either left behind or held back by the performance of the other students in the classroom. Teachers using traditional learning activities have trouble progressing some of the students in a classroom if not all are ready. Computer-based educational activities assist here by allowing each student to learn at his or her own pace. One student can move onto more demanding educational activities before the rest of the class without disrupting anyone else’s learning. Simultaneously, another student can repeat certain learning activities as often as advisable.

Computer-based instruction can also enhance the relevance and quality of educational activities. This will often register as a prime concern for parents and students. Collaborating with an appropriate site for learning activities will provide the school district or classroom teacher with a wealth of choices. With educational activities organized by grade level and covering a vast array of subject material, a valuable partnering site will empower the instructor with the ability to choose learning activities to target the students’ needs best. Further, if the site includes authoring tools, the teacher or parent may create new educational activities to address any under-served curricular areas. Additionally, a user community, if offered, may enable the sharing of learning activities far more easily than before. Providing instruction on the computer then helps foster increased relevance for the lessons involved.

To compete in today’s society, students need to achieve a much higher level of comfort and ease with technological tools. Today’s primary age students will find computers and technology dominating their workplaces to a greater degree than their parents or perhaps even their older siblings. Another advantage of learning activities on computers for our children then is that it teaches on multiple levels. Our students not only master the curriculum materials embedded in the learning activities, but also become more adept at using computers, which is also of value to them.

Finally, computer-based instruction can help lower the cost of our kids’ educational activities. Instead of buying multiple copies of a textbook for each subject matter area, schools can invest in computers and software to attend to all students. Many sites for learning activities can be accessed for a modest monthly fee. This one fee can then address an entire classroom’s needs across many curriculum areas at once, and therefore provide an economical way to provide educational activities. For these reasons, classrooms will feature computer-based instruction going forward.

In the market you will find cases, those are designed in such way so that the user can open the case easily.

After removing the computer case, you will have a look at all the components in the computer. You will find the motherboard, SMPS, hard disk, memory modules and other components. In addition, you will also find Video card, sound card, CPU, etc. You should learn about the components inside the case to maintain your computer.

You also need to remove adapter cards. For instance if there is a PCI based sound card, you will need to take note of the screw at the top of the bracket. To disconnect the card, first you need to remove that screw. Next you need to disconnect disk drives. Hard disks usually have screws at the side. The job these screws are to secure the hard drive in the PC’s drive bays. Be careful while unscrewing those, otherwise you precious hard disk may drop on the motherboard.

These are some useful tips for disassembling your computer. At the time of opening up your computer, you should remember these things. This will help you to avoid any potential problems at the time cleaning your computer or installing any new hardware component.

The Applemac Computer Mission

techno11

In 1984, the Apple Computer company formulated their mission statement as follows:

“To produce high-quality, low cost, easy to use products that incorporate high technology for the individual. We are proving that high technology does not have to be intimidating for noncomputer experts.”

Since then, Apple’s statement has evolved to includes all of these aspects:

“Apple computer is committed to protecting the environment, health and safety of our employees, customers and the global communities where we operate. We recognize that by integrating sound environmental, health and safety management practices into all aspects of our business, we can offer technologically innovative products and services while conserving and enhancing resources for future generations. Apple strives for continuous improvement in our environmental, health and safety management systems and in the environmental quality of our products, processes and services.”

Although both of these mission statements date well beyond Apple Computers’ final impact on the computing world, they were integral to the company’s ethical and technological goals and a big part of their evolution. In the 1970s, Apple was at the forefront of the personal computer revolution. The release of the Apple II ignited a fire under personal computer users, making them realize that true and powerful computing was within reach of the common user. Not satisfied with this groundbreaking accomplishment, Apple reinvented itself in the 1980s by bringing the Macintosh line of computers to the public.

As the company’s mission statement grew more refined so did Apple computers dedication to bringing top of the line computing products to consumers. Apple’s desktop, laptop and notebook computers continue to dominate the computing industry in terms of innovation, imagination and capabilities.

Not satisfied with simply providing the best computers money can buy, Apple continues to upgrade its operating systems – hitting a very high note and a standard other operating systems have yet to match with the OS X operating system. Applications such as iLife and other professional apps ensure that regular and hardcore users will continue to be catered to by the company’s mission.

Is if to put the icing on the cake, Apple has also spearheaded the digital music revolution. The widespread adoption of Apple’s iPod portable music players and iTunes online music store has proved that personal computing has been taken to the next step – no longer are Apple/Mac products merely the tools of business, programming and graphic design. They have crossed over into indispensable gadgets for our “real world” entertainment.
