High definition television, or HDTV as it’s often called for short, is the television technology that everyone’s been talking about. It’s actually not really that new- it’s been popular in Japan for years- but it’s just now starting to take hold in the United States in a big way. Even though high definition television is all the rage and prices of high definition television sets are soaring, many Americans still don’t know that much about this stunning new television format. In fact one thing that a lot of Americans don’t know, but is perhaps the most basic thing to know about high definition television is that it is a completely separate television format from what’s come before it. Knowledge of that fact alone will go a long way toward understanding the nature of high definition television and how to take advantage of it in your home entertainment center.

Is your life exactly what you want it to be? Probably not! Do you feel that you repeat the same old patterns year after year in your relationships, your finances and your career? Are you held back by feelings of insecurity or inadequacy? If the answer is yes, then very likely your subconscious programming is undermining you and sabotaging your life.

The way you experience life is coloured by the conditioning deep within your mind. The problem is that your subconscious holds programmes and beliefs of which you are completely unaware, and these can be extremely negative and self-defeating. When something happens in your life, even if you are consciously positive, the underlying negativity can rear its ugly head, destroying your confidence, undermining your trust in others or blocking opportunities for you.

You can find out exactly what is in your subconscious mind by learning to muscle test yourself. Muscle … Read More

Game Programming

May 4, 2020 | programming | No Comments

To be sure, game programming is one of the more difficult parts of programming. The reason for this is that modern games have become increasingly complex. Graphics and physics take up most of the system requirements and need lots of non-programming competence in order to make a successful game.

Games are generally written in languages such as C++ which provide a good balance between speed and power. C++ offers lots of tools for programmers such as classes and the standard library for the language, but it’s also relatively low level, allowing it to run without very much overhead. Additionally, modern game engines (to be discussed later) are often written in C++, so integrating your code into the engine will be easier if you use the language.

From there, what you should learn depends on what kinds of games you want to write. A simple 2D game justs needs the Simple … Read More

We learnt in the previous class about what a computer program and programming means.

We thus know that we need a language to be able to “talk” or communicate with a computer. There are three basic types of programming languages. A computer can however understand ONLY Machine Language directly. The earliest computer programs were written in machine language.

Machine Language: is expressed in binary using only 0 and 1.

Advantages:

  • Directly understandable by the computer
  • Processing and results were extremely fast

Disadvantages:

  • Being represented in Binary form, the codes were was very difficult to learn and understand by humans
  • All the data and instructions had to be manually transcribed into Machine Language (Binary Form) and all results had to be decoded from Machine Language to Human Readable form
  • Coding and Decoding took a long time
  • Length of the program used to be immense and subsequently resulted in errors

Assembly Language: … Read More

If you need to get a new laptop for programming or coding purposes and are uncertain where to start, this short guide will help you find the perfect setup for your needs.

For web developers, there are really two main paths they need to go through. If you’re doing front-end web development, then you’ll need a basic machine that can run a text editor and a browser to check your progress. For back-end developers things get a bit more complicated. You will need a laptop that can handle multiple tasks simultaneously like running a browser, a local server and the code editor. These might not seem like a lot, but they do require a lot of system resources so make sure you pick a laptop that’s up to the task.

For game, 3D or mobile app development you’ll need a high performance laptop that can render everything in real-time. Think … Read More

What Is Python Web Programming?

May 4, 2020 | programming | No Comments

The python programming language is a modern web programming language that was originally conceived and developed by Guido van Rossum in the 1980s. Since that time, Python has evolved into a high-performance programming language that is modular and extensible. Some of the largest websites in the world are utilizing Python such as YouTube, Disqus, and Reddit. Python offers a number of features that make it an attractive programming platform including stability, portability, object-oriented development, a powerful standard library and a wealth of third-party modules or packages.

Stability

Python has been under active development since the late 1980s and is considered a mature programming language. The developers of the Python language conduct extensive functionality and regression testing to ensure the language remains bug-free and stable with each new release.

Portability

Python programming offers a number of features that make it an attractive option for web application development. Python applications are portable … Read More

You are probably writing more Microsoft Access programming code then you need to. This means wasted coding time, more code maintenance and possible debugging. This article applies to all versions of Microsoft Access, not just Access 2007, but many new features of Access 2007 allow you to do zero coding to do tasks such as bulk emails, form control resizing, scheduling tasks, date picking, formatting, etc.

I have reviewed tens of thousands of lines of programmers’ code, not just in Access 2007, and have found that many lines of code are being written in areas where much less code was needed to do the same job. Here’s the technique that will save much time.

Did you know that your data tables in Microsoft Access 2007 can be used to control your Access 2007 program and write code for you, if they contain metadata.

Metadata is data about data. You have … Read More

About Programming Languages

Programming language translators are taken as best example of system software. The computer programming language is developed with the primary objectives and simplifies the large number of peoples to use computer without any need to know the details of internal structure of the computer.

Languages are matching with the type of operation to be performed by the algorithm for various applications. Languages are also to be designed for the machine independent process.

There are some of the popular high level language are taken. These are:

1. FORTRAN:

It stands for formula translation. It is the oldest high level language. The first version of this language was known as FORTRAN – II, and next popular version was FORTRAN -04. FORTRAN-77 was the most powerful than its predecessors. Recently this version has FORTRAN has known as FORTRAN-90, which is superseding of FORTRAN-77.

2. COBOL:

It stands for Common Business Oriented Language. Now … Read More

Database Programming Languages

May 4, 2020 | programming | No Comments

Programming languages such as C++, BASIC, and Pascal were produced as general function languages, which means that you can use them to write a flight simulator, an accounting program, a voice identification program, or a word processor.

One of the most common uses for computers, however, is storing and recalling information, such as names, addresses, telephone numbers, prison records, credit history, and past job experience. Calculators store such data in a database. Almost every business relies on databases to store info about clients, inventories, and employees, so nearly every company uses a database program.

Unluckily, most people don’t want to know the strange and often freaky commands necessary to store, retrieve, or print info from a database. To make databases easier to use, most databases include a programming specific language. If you publish programs using a database’s programming language, you can produce custom databases for various companies. Best of all, … Read More

Unfortunately, tense shoulders and back pain are not uncommon ailments in today’s society. In our fast-paced and high-stress desk jobs, it is not out of the ordinary to be seated for several consecutive hours, which leads to slouched and hunched shoulders and backs, respectively. This amount of time spent in a single position can take a huge toll on our posture, making significant negative changes to the curvature of our spines and tension in our shoulders. A specific type of exercise called Pilates might be your best bet to not only prevent any further damage, but also reduce present symptoms of pain and tension caused by poor posture.

Correct posture is defined as an optimal position while sitting, standing, and moving to resist the forces of gravity that are acting on our bodies. When seated or standing, our spine should have two posterior curves, a slight curve in the thoracic … Read More
