WAKE UP PARENTS

Saw this nice post “Wake up Parents” and couldn’t restrict myself from sharing it.

Years back, poor illiterate parents produced
♦ Doctors,
♦ Engineers,
♦ Scientists,
♦ Accountants,
♦ Lawyers,
♦ Architects,
♦ Professors.., whom I will refer to as Group ‘A‘.

These Group ‘A‘ Children struggled on their own after Primary 6 or Grade 12, to become notable personalities. Most of them
♦ trekked to school barefooted
♦ went to farms
♦ fetched water and firewood
♦ cared for domesticated animals
♦ did some work including trading after school to survive.

Now Group ‘A’ ,who have now become Parents themselves are producing Group ‘B‘ Children

These Group B children are
⇒ pampered
⇒ helped in their homework or home assignments from nursery school through secondary schools to higher institutions.
⇒ chauffeur driven to very expensive schools or are sent abroad to study.
⇒ they can watch movies from morning till dawn after school.
⇒ they are treated like baby kings and queens.
⇒ they don’t do any household chores.
⇒ Food is put on the table for them,
⇒ their plates are removed and washed by parents or house maids.
⇒ They are given expensive cars and clothes,
⇒ not forgetting big pocket money to be wasted !!!.
⇒ Their parents help them in doing their assignments.
In spite of all these, only few can speak or write correctly.

Group ‘A‘ Parents cared for their own parents and children, Group ‘B‘,their Children are still struggling to find their feet at age 30+.‼
They find it difficult to do things on their own because they are used to being helped to think and doing things by Group ‘A‘. So they can’t help themselves, their parents or the society.

⊗ THEY ABANDON THEIR PARENTS IN THEIR BID TO ACQUIRE THE WORLD

Where do you belong
Reduce the pampering and the unnecessary help you offer your children.
Let your children grow in wisdom, intelligence and strength.
Let them face the truth and the realities of life.

Teach them to grow to become independent adults.
Teach them to ♥ fear God, ♥ respect others and ♥ develop confidence in themselves.

Parents, discipline your children to become disciplined adults, useful and not useless.

Ultimate Boot CD

Ultimate Boot CD is completely free for the download, or could be obtained for a small fee.

You need the Ultimate Boot CD if you want to:

  • Run floppy-based diagnostic tools from CDROM drives. More and more PCs are shipped without floppy drives these days, and it is such a royal pain when you need to run diagnostic tools on them.
  • Free yourself from the slow loading speed of the floppy drive. Even if you do have a floppy drive, it is still much much faster to run your diagnostic tools from the CDROM drive, rather than wait for the tool to load from the floppy drive.
  • Consolidate as many diagnostic tools as possible into one bootable CD. Wouldn’t you like to avoid digging into the dusty box to look for the right floppy disk, but simply run them all from a single CD? Then the Ultimate Boot CD is for you!
  • Run Ultimate Boot CD from your USB memory stick. A script on the CD prepares your USB memory stick so that it can be used on newer machines that supports booting from USB devices. You can access the same tools as you would from the CD version.

You can download the latest version of Ultimate Boot CD by clicking the image below.

 

What’s the Difference Between “Image” and “Clone”? – 

The difference between image and clone is both simple and confusing, because the terms are used interchangeably to mean different things.

Image and clone are two very confusing backup terms.
One reason is a deep, dark, dirty little secret of the industry: we don’t all agree on what these two terms mean. Quite literally, one person’s clone is another person’s image, and vice versa.
It gets confusing, and if you’re hearing different things from different people, that’s why.
I’ll provide what I believe are the most accurate and common definitions. Hopefully, that means you’re more likely to hear people agree than disagree with what I’m saying.

Is There a Way to Know Where a URL-shortened URL Is Going to Take Me?

Link-shortening services make it hard to tell a link’s final destination. When you receive one in an email, you may want to do some detective work to see where it’s going – before you click.

Some services do have preview features. For example, if you visit tinyurl.com/preview.php, TinyURL will help you turn on a cookie-based feature in your browser. Then, when you click on a link, you can preview where it goes prior to going there.

Bit.ly also allows you to do this. Simply add a plus sign to the end of the URL, and Bit.ly will display where you would have gone rather than taking you there.

There are also several sites that show you where a shortened link will take you. Some current services1 include:

Each of these display the target and some additional information about a short URL.

The bottom line, really, is to stay away from mysterious links sent to you through spam. But when you receive a shortened link from a trusted source and you aren’t sure why, investigate with these preview tools.

Can I Use a Power Supply with a Higher Wattage Rating on my Laptop?

Laptop Adapters

Swapping power supplies

It can be kind of complicated and confusing if you’re not familiar with how a power supply (and to some degree, electricity itself) works.

The short rules boil down to this:

  • The output connector must match.
  • The polarity of the output connector must match.
  • The output voltage must be the same.

In addition,

  • The output amperage must be greater than or equal to that required by the laptop.

or:

  • The output wattage must be greater than or equal to that required by the laptop.
