Learning XML Free

One of the modules I have opted to take this year at uni is Web Services.  Having had a hand in updating websites and creating a few, I figured this would be a good opportunity for me to look at ways I can learn more about one of the main voluntary work tasks that I “fell” into a few years back.  There are the usual requirements to do coursework, classwork, study for an exam etc etc.  As I have discovered the bulk of webservices all seem to centre around XML and applications.  Having done some digging around on YouTube I came across these videos from Adam Khoury.  If you get a chance they are well worth checking out.

I also did a bit of checking up on free xml editor programs and decided to go for CAM Editor, which I then downloaded to my computer so I can get on with the business of setting up XML files and validation files.  Hopefully I’ll even be able to write WSDL files which will work in the coursework that I am doing with a fellow student.  One thing is certain, I never dreamed I would end up doing any of this kind of stuff.  It never ceases to amaze me what God will do with our potential if we will overcome our fear and let Him.

When You Forgot The Password…..

…so often we can just click a link that says “forgot password” and fill in our email address which lets whatever website we are trying to log into send us either our password, or let us change it to one that we should remember better next time.  How wonderful it would be if we could all use one simple password and know that all our information would be secure.  It would certainly make life a lot easier.  However, the one password you really don’t want to forget is the one that lets you into your computer.  Forget that and all you are left with is a problem.  Are you going to pay a lot of money to have your computer wiped and restored to factory settings, losing all your information in the process.  Find out how you can reset your Windows Password quickly and cheaply – sign up for my free newsletter here and I’ll show you a tool which can make all the difference to chucking away a perfectly good computer, spending a fortune to have your data recovered, or being able to unlock it within minutes.

Driver Update Nightmare

Windows updates, security patches and more are vital to maintaining security for our computer systems, but so often we ignore the importance of keeping system drivers up to date.  On occasion I have been called on by friends to help out when their computers have required to be recovered.  More often than not these people have not been able to provide the recovery disks that they got with their system.  Anyone who has to recover a system with any type of recovery disk or hard drive partition knows that trying to track down drivers manually takes time.  The good news is there are a few driver support programs which can help speed up the process.  Why not sign up for my newsletter for more information on some low cost and at times free tech programs which can help save you time and money.
