on the internet is the most important thing that
you will ever do. I cannot overstate this point. Get on the
internet - now. Your livelihood, your happiness and your future is at
stake. Staying away from the internet is the social equivalent of
What is so great about the internet? Put simply,
it's communication. The internet gives everyone on this planet the
capability of communicating with anyone else (assuming they are on the
internet also) at any time about anything that they want.
Perhaps the most basic human characteristic is communication.
Humans are always chattering about something, whether it be written,
spoken, drawn, painted, hand-signaled or coded in electronic waves. We
have a basic, fundamental need to talk to someone, anyone.
And when we're not talking, we want to be listening.
Just as important, the internet allows, uniquely in history, the
ability to communicate virtually instantly and almost completely
uncensored. Never before (and probably never again, if some people
have their way) have you had the opportunity for open communications
that you have now.
Take advantage of the internet like you've never taken advantage of
anything before in your life. There are more opportunities here than
you can imagine. There is money to be made, friends to be found,
product to purchase and places to explore. Quite literally, there is
something for everyone.
There is danger also, but if you are careful you will be fine. Load
up your virus checking, install a firewall, watch out for scams, and
protect your children and you should be fine.
So what are you waiting for? Get going, make a fortune and have
fun. And email me with your success stories ... I'd love to know the
cool things you've done on the web.
|Here's A Tip You've Gotta Try!
CD-R and CD-RW
What is the difference between CD-R and CD-RW?
I thought that we had already done a tip on this subject, but
after doing some research for it, I couldn't find anything. We
have one for DVDs, which is pretty similar, but I thought I would
go ahead and answer the CD part of it for you. Good thing you
Both the CD-R and CD-RW CDs look
alike, but there are obviously some major differences between
them. (They wouldn't have separate names if there wasn't, right?!)
We've done several articles on burning lately, so you should be
pretty up to par on that, but picking the CDs you are going to use
is the next big step. The main difference that comes into play is
the quality you will get from each type of CD.
Most people burn CDs to either
back up their data or to make a music CD. The CD-R format is a
more inexpensive disk with a decent amount of quality. They
usually hold between 650 and 700 MB of information. These are good
for saving any type of information, but they're better used for
school projects, copying games, moving data from one computer to
another, etc. If you're not planning on ever erasing the
information, you'll want to use a CD-R.
On the other hand, a CD-RW is a
rewriteable disk. They are more flexible for the mere fact that
you can write and rewrite information on them. You can usually
copy over them at least 40 times as well, which is pretty
impressive. CD-RWs are good for making music CDs, because if you
get tired of that music, you can always copy new songs over the
old data. So, if you're planning on erasing the information you
put on a CD, use a CD-RW, because you can get a lot more use out
of them. This also makes it less expensive in the end, because of
the reuse factor.
Whichever format you use, you
burn them the same way. As long as you have a CD burner and some
type of burning software installed on your computer, you're good
to go. As I said earlier, this information is pretty much the same
for DVDs, but here's an
you can read on that if you're wanting to burn DVDs instead.
