Book Description
From nontechnical managers to IT professionals, everyone with responsibility for networks wants answers to the problem of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). And this book provides what may be the hottest answer yet. Here's thorough coverage of thin client technology for Microsoft Windows and Windows NT-technology that gives simple machines (even dumb terminals) the power to run advanced Microsoft applications from a server. Here readers will learn how this technology simplifies updates, configuration, and maintenance.

Sun and Netscape have tried to get a lot of mileage from studies that show the cost of the typical corporate PC at $3K to buy, $13K/yr to maintain. The flaw in their NC alternative is: where's the software? Citrix has pioneered the Windows terminal approach in their WinFrame product, which lets you run sophisticated Windows apps, such as Word 97, from any platform that has a Citrix client on it, be it a Mac, a legacy Unix workstation, or even a 286 running DOS over a 28K modem connection,. Since the app resides on the server side, update, configuration, and many maintenance issues drop like flies. The user's machine doesn't even have to have the flexibility to be mis-configured, and the user defaults/privileges can be driven from the log-in to provide a consistent desktop and access rights from any machine. Microsoft will be supporting this technology in NT 5.0 under the code name Hydra--as a TCO solution that combines all the appeal of the NC with the installed app base of Windows, expect it to be hot!


It can be quite dangerous to be involved in video games. There's a lot of danger and evil lurking in each and every corner. In this article, we will give you good advice on how to get the most out of the time you have for video games. We will also share some innovative tips and tricks. Continue below. Try downloading a game demo prior to purchasing the actual game so that you can determine if you're going to enjoy it. Previewing a game can help you see whether you wish to buy the full version or not. Be careful, though, where you download the game from. Only download from a well-known site to avoid problems with your computer. Think about what age your kids have to be before they can play games rated M, or mature. Generally, you can set up your wii so that kids can't play games that are too mature, although computers are a little harder to work with. It is important to understand how to protect your children. Play in single player mode first. If you are not doing well by yourself, you will get demolished when playing with other people. If you find the game too challenging, make a trade for something you like more. Avoid wasting your time when it comes to online gaming. These days, lots of games are transmitted online. There are a wide variety of downloadable games available for PCs, consoles, and smartphones. It s convenient, but it may cause you to spend more money than normal. Resist the temptation to make impulse gaming purchases, especially of big-ticket new releases. It is important to learn everything you can about a game prior to purchasing it. Research and understand the rating system used for video games. Some games are not meant for children, so consider this fact when shopping for games. Each game will have a specific rating ranging from Early Childhood (EC) to Adults Only (AO). Be sure to choose an appropriately-rated game, especially if it is a gift designed for someone else. Today, there are a lot of online games where you may be asked to purchase something with real life currency if you want to get more out of it. Make sure to evaluate these purchases quite carefully. They may not do much to improve your game-playing experience on one hand. While that is true, they may save some time. If you are buying a new gaming system, make sure that everything works after you purchase it. Even if you're not going to use every accessory for it, check the various ports to see if they're in working condition. If you discover a problem months after your purchase, such as a broken headphone jack, you won't be able to exchange the ps3 for a new one. Use the subtitle feature. Is it the cast that the dialogue of the game is hard to understand because of all the gunfire and music? Check in the menu for a subtitles option. This can usually be found in the audio section of the game. You can generally find a setting here to toggle subtitles on and off. Try playing video games as a way to bond with your children. Gaming together is a fun and inexpensive way to get in some family time. It can also allow you to ensure that your kids aren't playing inappropriate games. Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences. You can enjoy computer games just for fun, or you can get a world of education and enrichment from them. Hopefully you have learned all you need to know about online games from this article.
