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.

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.

How much RAM do you need, should you upgrade it, and will it speed up your PC? | ExtremeTech

How much RAM do you need?

How much RAM you need in a system depends on what you intend to do with it, how long you intend to keep it, and whether or not you can upgrade your memory post-purchase. This last point is important, as many high-end laptops have eliminated user-upgradeable RAM in order to reduce system thickness by roughly six nanometers.

Adding additional RAM to any laptop generally increases power consumption by a measurable (if small) amount, but this shouldn’t be an issue for most users. It’s also better to have a bit too much RAM than too little, as whatever you gain in power savings you’ll promptly lose to increased disk paging.

Apple’s MacBook Air offers 4GB of RAM, but most of the systems from Dell, HP, and other OEMs start at 8GB, and I think that’s the better sweet spot. That’s not to say you can’t get by on 4GB — you absolutely can — but 8GB gives you a bit more breathing room.

Another cloud storage provider bites the dust.

Copy.com, the cloud storage service that offered near-unlimited space and huge bonuses for referrals, announced today they’re shutting down on May 1st, 2016—leaving more than a few people with dozens or hundreds of gigs of data to migrate.

Copy, and its business-focused cloud storage service, CudaDrive, are subsidiaries of Barracuda Networks, which announced the shutdown today first in the form of pop-up notifications to its users, and then eventually in a statement on their home page (linked below). From it, they note:

We know this comes as disappointing news to our users, but rest assured that we will do everything we can to take care of each of you in the manner for which Barracuda is known. We have partnered with Mover.io to make migrating your data to another service as easy as possible and have created a step by step guide that walks you through the process of moving your data to a local hard drive or another cloud storage solution.

If you are on a paid subscription for either Copy or CudaDrive, please keep an eye out in the coming days for an email with more detailed information on your options. For additional information, please visit our FAQ page.

Users with paid plans will likely be offered a refund or credit for a different storage service, but everyone will have to get their data out before the service is discontinued on May 1st. For more, hit the link below to see the full announcement.

Windows 10 Recovery Drive Creation Issues | @PCWorld

When you can’t create the Windows 10 Recovery Drive, try these three fixes

The words you don’t want to read: “We can’t create a recovery drive on this PC.” These workarounds should help in most situations.

 

If you’re running Windows 10, you need to create a recovery drive—a bootable flash drive that will allow you to restore your system from a restore point, an image backup, or through a complete reinstall.

There’s no single solution to this problem. A fix that works for one person won’t necessarily work for another.

 

But first, a quick review on creating a recovery drive: Plug in an empty flash drive with a capacity of 4GB or more. Then open Control Panel’s Recovery tool, click Create a recovery drive, and follow the prompts.

And yes, you do want to back up system files necessary for a full reinstall.

If you try those directions and get a “We can’t create a recovery drive…” error, try these solutions:

Scan for problems

Your PC may be suffering from a corrupted system file. Here’s how to find out and hopefully fix it:

Type cmd in the Search field. In the search results, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

0111 scan

Once you’re inside the command environment, type sfc/scannow and press Enter. The System File Checker (SFC) program will examine Windows files and replace any that appear to be corrupt. This scan rarely takes more than 10 minutes.

0111 cmd

After the scan, try again.

Try another flash drive

Yes, it’s obvious, but a lot of people overlook the obvious. You can buy a 4GB flash drive for less than $5, so there’s really no excuse.

Create an install drive instead

A Windows 10 install drive is very much like a Windows 10 recovery drive. The major differences are that the install drive defaults to reinstalling Windows, and doesn’t know the details of your particular Windows installation.

First, you’ll need to download the media creation tool. Be patient; it’s a big file. Once you have it, plug in your flash drive, launch MediaCreationTool.exe, select Create installation media for another PC and follow the prompts.

0111 install drive 1

When you boot from this drive, the Windows Setup wizard comes up. On the second page of the wizard, ignore the big “Install now” button and click Repair your computer in the lower-left corner. That brings you into an environment nearly identical to the Recovery Tool.

0111 install tool

But if you do a complete reinstall, there’s a possibility that it will require you to enter your Product ID number—the proof that you can legally run Windows 10 on this machine. So take a precaution now: Download and run Nirsoft’s free and portable ProduKey. Save the displayed numbers in a safe place.
