With a cell phone hotspot to computer desktop I already connected and dis-connected from this new DNS service, everything worked as it should have, except rainmeter weather. The web parser.dll was confused. I know this a vague description. I haven’t compiled all my data yet.

How To Build Windows Software Without Any Coding Knowledge

Actually as you explore this program I’m going to tell you about, you will realize you will have to learn how to use and write computer code. But, this program has enough in it to help you along that road of learning how to build Windows software and coding.

I began using this program back in 2009. The one and only software program I built with it is, Wintrol 5.1.

Wintrol 5 Windows Control Panel Utility +
Wintrol 5 Windows Control Panel Utility +

I’m not here to tell you what Wintrol does, if you want to know about Wintrol you can visit the Wintrol page and download it from here.

I really do love this Windows software program builder.
Neosoftware really has something on the competition.

The NeoBook Rapid Application Builder version 5.8.7 isn’t free, it will set you back $149.00 (USD), there’s a free trial version if you just want to try it first.

With NeoBook Rapid Application Builder, “even inexperienced users can quickly combine combine text, pictures, sound, video, Flash animation, HTML content, Internet links, databases, special effects and other elements to create interactive, professional software programs.”

NeoBook Rapid Application Builder version 5.8.7

“Completed NeoBook projects can be compiled into a compact, self-contained Windows application (exe) or screen saver (scr) for easy distribution. No players, special drivers, licenses or additional software are required to view compiled applications. NeoBook created applications look and act just like real Windows programs, so no one need know that you didn’t toil for years learning Java or C++.”

The System Requirements for NeoBook are as follows:

Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10 (32/64-bit). A hard disk with 20 MB free space. Mouse or other Windows-supported pointing device. Windows-supported sound card (optional)

Apps created with NeoBook will run under:
Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10 (32/64-bit).

“NeoBook works with a series of plug-ins, the plug-ins are specially designed components that can be installed along with NeoBook to provide additional functions not found in the basic program. Properly designed plug-ins are extremely fast and their use virtually transparent. Once installed, plug-in functions appear in NeoBook’s Select an Action list along with the program’s native commands.”

Alexander of France is quoted saying, “I studied Neobook at school when I was 15 and then I bought it. Now I am 19 and I work every day on it and I earn money with Neobook. According to me, Neobook is more than a software, it is a DREAM, it is the best developing software over the world!”

All that talk from technology website’s and all the “How To Learn Computer Code”, how to’s out there have nothing on this program. NeoBook is where you want to start learning how to build computer software.

“BSOD”, stands for “Blue Screen Of Death”.

unmountable-boot-volume

And yes, most likely you have encountered the dreaded BSOD, provided you are running a computer.

But wait, you never found out what caused that BSOD. Chance’s are you still can.
If you haven’t ran any cleaning program’s like CCleaner, that mini dump file still exsist on your computer. You can veiw that mini dump file and determine what caused your computer to crash.
After your system has recovered and you are now logged onto your Windows “OS”, just run BlueScreenVeiw. –
BlueScreenView v1.55 – Copyright (c) 2009 – 2015 Nir Sofer –

bluescreenview

FROM: Nirsoft

“BlueScreenView scans all your minidump files created during ‘blue screen of death’ crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table. For each crash, BlueScreenView displays the minidump filename, the date/time of the crash, the basic crash information displayed in the blue screen (Bug Check Code and 4 parameters), and the details of the driver or module that possibly caused the crash (filename, product name, file description, and file version). For each crash displayed in the upper pane, you can view the details of the device drivers loaded during the crash in the lower pane. BlueScreenView also mark the drivers that their addresses found in the crash stack, so you can easily locate the suspected drivers that possibly caused the crash.”

It may be best to run BlueScreenView while in “Safe Mode”, that way you can treat the cause of that BSOD from there without any restrictions, such as uninstalling the culprit that isn’t running in safe mode.

Only a certain amount of Windows drivers run in safe mode, and most likely they aren’t the reason for the BSOD. Perhaps you installed a thrid party program that had injected its own drivers -into the “OS”- for it to run properly. But, the driver wasn’t compatible for your system, hence a BSOD.

Anyway, this handy little tool will help you fix the problem. Hasn’t failed me yet, as long as the mini dump file is still in my system, I can take care of the problem with a success rate of 100%.

If your system doesn’t create MiniDump files on a blue screen crash, try to configure it according to the following article: How to configure Windows to create MiniDump files on BSOD BlueScreenView can read the MiniDump files of both 32-bit and x64 systems.Be aware that on Windows 10, some of the created MiniDump files might be empty and BlueScreenView will not display them. BlueScreenView doesn’t require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file – BlueScreenView.exe After running BlueScreenView, it automatically scans your MiniDump folder and display all crash details in the upper pane.

What Math Can Do To Make The Internet 5-10 Times Faster


math-1

Mathematical equations can make Internet communication via computer, mobile phone or satellite many times faster and more secure than today. A new study uses a four minute long mobile video as an example. The method used by the Danish and US researchers in the study resulted in the video being downloaded five times faster than state of the art technology. The video also streamed without interruptions. In comparison, the original video got stuck 13 times along the way.

Read

“This has the potential to change the entire market. In experiments with our network coding of Internet traffic, equipment manufacturers experienced speeds that are five to ten times faster than usual.”
