  • I bought a DVD of a tv series. I want to watch them on my phone. How do I rip the videos so I can transfer them?

    Best answer: It is not easy. You can look this up but you need to get some ripping software that will bypass the dvd's copyright protection. This means that there wont be any big name brand software that will work. You have to use some sketchier stuff. Ironically it would be easier to install some bittorrent software and... show more

  • Computer slowed down after installation and configuration of Apache TomCat, and Eclipse. All application slowed down.?

    Best answer: I haven't seen installing the JDK do that on any version of Windows (guessing that it *is* Windows, 'cause that's where most of the games that have FPS considerations are) but so far, the systems I've built or used are on Win7 and earlier.

    Best answer: I haven't seen installing the JDK do that on any version of Windows (guessing that it *is* Windows, 'cause that's where most of the games that have FPS considerations are) but so far, the systems I've built or used are on Win7 and earlier.

    What I have seen cause serious slowdown from a small change is paging, but that's usually only with trying to run newer versions of Windows on older systems with 2GB or less of RAM. You'll see the hard drive light on pretty solidly when this is happening--each task switch causes pages to be written to the swap file to make room to read in pages for the new task. This is "thrashing", and it happens when the "working set" of pages needed for all active tasks to run smoothly is larger than available memory.

    In any case, some resource is being hogged (probably one of CPU, disk, network or memory) and you can find out who is doing it with the system resource monitor.

    Use the start menu search (or Cortana on 10 I guess) to find it. There's also a button on task manager's Performance tab.

    Also use blinkenlights on your computer. If the disk activity light is solid on, then you've got either lots of disk I/O in a high priority system task, or possibly thrashing. If not, it's most likely CPU or blocking on network I/O.

    Good luck!

    If you are interested in a particular aspect, e.g. website development, then try to make a website on your own. Plan a project and start on it. You will gain plenty of knowledge that way; you will be able to apply concepts you have learnt at school, to your own ideas.

    Best answer: How do you plan to go about looking for jobs?

    Most people would look at job listings, and those listing would tell you what languages employers are looking for.

    Of course, it doesn't matter what languages are mentioned in the listing that are asking for people with 5 years of experience.

    Are you still in school and heading to get a degree. If so, the degree is the most valuable thing (assuming you have good grades from a good school). If you are looking for an entry-level position, the employers are looking for someone with potential. You are implying that you already have that.

    What you need most is the ability to sell yourself. There will be other people with similar credentials applying for the position. Why should they hire YOU? You need to figure out the answer and get good and saying it convincingly.

    Given that you already know more than one programming language, you should have confidence that you can pick up another one pretty quickly. They don't expect recent graduates to be experts.

    Best answer: Wordpress is a content management system that provides many developers "open source" solutions to creating a website. It is the most used platform, so that is in large part why it is the most hacked. Your web developer used it because it is very intuitive and easy to manage; it also has very few limitations. Square Space and Wix are website builders with limited functionality; they are an inexpensive solution to a web presence that doesn't do much.

    Since Wordpress is so common, many people choose it. Wordpress supports their own platform so once vulnerabilities are found, developers fix them and provide patches and fixes in newer released versions of Wordpress. If users are not actively managing Wordpress and keeping it up to date with the latest version, their site is VERY Vulnerable.

    Your web developer chose Wordpress because it can grow with you, because it is the most popular, and also because Wordpress has the tools and support to make any highly customized software implementations. The only dependency is how much work you're willing to put into it. Always be sure you are running the most up to date version of Wordpress.

    My goal is to obtain the project manager title and position at an IT company. So far I have many years of technical IT work as well as programming experience. I know that this experience has little to no relationship to becoming a project manager but its something to get my foot in the IT door. I have about 6 years of hardware and software IT support, can code in C++, python, HTML, CSS, Java and SQl. I just got my bachelors degree in information systems and work full time as a computer techician tier 2. I want to know what I need to do to become a project manager. I know that I have to pass the PMP exam but I don't know where to start. How do I go about this?

  • What is the best place to learn python free online?

    Best answer: This really depends on what you known already, and on what needs you have as a learner.

    If you are already programming in some other language, the "official" tutorial at python.org is a great place to start.
    https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/index...

    That's actually part of the "real truly-fine manual" at:
    https://docs.python.org/3/index.html

    You might see some other definitions of RTFM online and elsewhere, with coarser language, but the spirit is the really the same. The ultimate source of information for a developer is in "the docs" for whatever programming language, OS, library, API, etc. you are using.

    If you're not a programmer but are interested, willing and able to become one, then I don't think it matters much where you start. Every beginner's book, video course or website I've seen has things you'll need to "unlearn" later. What does matter is, does it get you interested enough to start writing code on your own? That depends more on you than it does on the source.

    You can get information online, for free, but learning happens between your ears when you are writing programs, figuring out what series of steps will get a computer to do what you want, and then figuring out what went wrong when the results are not what you expected.

    Take a look at codecademy.com or tutorialspoint.com as examples of web tutorial sites. Both provide online coding, so you can work from a mobile device, if needed. The sooner you get Python installed on a real computer and learn how to code that runs outside a website's sandbox, the better. You'll need a Windows/OSX/Linux desktop or notebook for this. Android, iOS, ChromeOS, etc. are designed for users, not developers.

    After you can write simple programs without help, you might want to go back to the python.org tutorial and see what other things might not have been mentioned. Also, at that point, published books are a good (non-free) way to get well-edited information. I like Wesley Chun's "Core Python Programming" and/or Magnus Lie Hetland's "Beginning Python, from Novice to Professional" (it was titled "Practical Python" when I read it) both good.

    And, if you want a good idea about what Computer Science is about, the free CS 101 video course at udacity.com is pretty good, assumes no prior programming experience, and uses Python as the programming language.

    If you like sudoku, then you might research how to generate sudoku puzzles. An enhancement might be to write a program to solve them, too. Another direction might be to write a screen lock that only unlocks if a person solves a few squares of sudoku in a limited time.
