The Project Management Institute (PMI) has released a new Fourth Edition of the Guide to Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). a new version of the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam, based upon the PMBOK Guide – Fourth Edition, will be placed into use for credential exams taken on or after June 30th of 2009. PMI indications are that there would be no changes to the exam eligibility criteria, the application process or the passing score for the PMP Exam.
Major differences between the Third Edition and the Fourth Edition PMBOK Guide summarization:
- All process names start with an action verb format, for example the Scope Definition process is now the Define Scope process and Risk Identification process is now the Identify Risks process
- The number of processes is now forty-two. this was accomplished by deleting two processes, adding two processes and the six processes for Project Procurement Management knowledge area have been merged into four processes. the following bullets illustrate the differences by project management process name:
- Process 4.2 Develop Preliminary Project Scope Statement was deleted since the data is reflected in other scope planning documents
- Process 5.1 Scope Planning is deleted and replaced with a new process 5.1 Collect Requirements
- Process 12.1 Plan purchases and Acquisitions and process 12.2 Plan Contracting was merged to one process of 12.1 Plan Procurements, Process 12.3 Request Seller Responses and process 12.4 Select Sellers was merged to one process of 12.2 Conduct Procurements
- Appendix G is added and addresses key communication, leadership and management skills for a project manager
- Where process flow diagrams were displayed, they are deleted and replaced with data flow diagrams which clarify inputs and outputs for each process
- Within Proj Mgmt Framework, clearer definition is given to the differences between the Proj Mgmt Plan and other project management documents
- Project Charter and the Project Scope Statement information have clearer distinctions
- The classic three triple constraints of schedule, scope and cost were removed. the replacement is six project performance demands of scope, quality, schedule, budget, resources and risk
- Addition of a new section on project management versus operations management
- Deleted the Arrow Diagramming Method (ADM) for network diagrams
- Two new Earned Value Management (EVM) forecasting metrics have been added for To-Complete Performance Index (TPIC) and revised the Estimate at Completion (EAC) calculation
- Clearer definitions and differences between enterprise environmental factors and organizational process assets

Computer programming is not for everyone, working with computers constantly is hard work not physical work but very much mental. The drawbacks of working with computer are you cannot really work outside, tired eye and some days I personally cannot go near my computer. In saying that I love working with computers. My first computer was a commador 64bit and since then technology has integrated into nearly everything in modern life.
One huge lie is that you need a college degree to work as a computer programmer.
Computer Programming has well paid jobs anywhere in the world, if you feel up to the task of learning a useful new skill. It is possible that you can learn computer programming in under 4 weeks if devoted enough.
I find it hard to dedicate oneself to learning no matter what age, but I believe with the right motivation anyone can learn to do anything, and start a new career in one of the fastest growing sectors in the world. You can learn from experts worldwide and learn what you need to know for the high paying Programming jobs. The first time I looked at computer code and languages I was totally confused, but I learned the computer languages and after practice to code quicker.
You can learn databases and software to become a programming. Pick the best computer languages for you to use. Information, techniques and hands on experience will lower your learning curve, increase your chances of a job, where to find jobs with these new found skills and lower your learning time dramatically.
I believe the best way to learn anything is to have a study plan which allows you to use your time more efficiently as if you have children and work. That’s why I like home learning you can take you time no rush learn the way that best suits you. You can learn all the skills of the computer programming that are required for the higher paying contract work.

Today, fibre optic cable has become the prominent medium for high-speed transmissions of large amounts of data as well as for customized computer networking systems. in spite of being expensive, most of the companies are installing optical cables to have un-interrupted and speedy transfer of information via wide range of computer devices.
Telecommunication applications of fiber-optic cable are widespread, ranging from global networks to desktop computers. Generally, fibre cables are the bundle of thin glass threads (also called optical fibres) that are capable of transmitting any amount of data without any loss. these flexible fibres can be grouped together, and the resultant cabling network functions at superior bandwidths in comparison to other kinds of transmitting information media. Since these glass fibres go through low-level of reduction and hindrance, they are extremely effective for various telephonic applications.
Since internet is a most prominent mode of communication toady, use of fibre technology ensures secure data transmission and networking in seconds with minimal loss of records. Many different types of telecom providers frequently uses these advance cable to have fast and better mode of communication. In-spite of the cost factor, most of the traditional telephone lines is getting replaced by cable optic technology for smooth, safe and easy transfer of information.
Most conventional communications media including telephone, music, film, and television are reshaped or redefined by the internet, giving birth to VoIP service (Voice over Internet Protocol) and IPTV. with effective web network through modern fiber optic cabling structure, one can easily be able to watch live high-definition videos and movies, easily do video conference in real-time, download large media files within moments and do a lot more things that are hard to do few decades before.
Fibre optic cabling offer out of the ordinary services that not only needed by large business corporate but also can be made use of at home for smooth communication. but due to lack of knowledge many people tends to relate the CAT cable as optical cables. the former cables are comprised of four copper wires that are twisted together, very similar to phone line. As compare to fibre cable, later uses electrical signals to transmit data from one source to other. these copper wires are cheap to install but they are insecure and have risk of data loss while transmitting through different mediums. Hence, fiber optical provides much better bandwidth transmission capabilities and security as compare to these Ethernet network cables.
Though expensive, optical technology is now being widely used in the lan cable in most of the corporate offices and telecommunication industries. these are extremely useful for local-area networks which is confined to a relatively small area such as a single building or a group of buildings. with such large number of advantages, the time is not far when fibre optic cable will surely outshine all types of networking cable system.
Moscow, Russia (PRWEB) February 3, 2009
MDO Ltd today announced the availability of the new version 3 of eBoostr, unique software tool to increase the performance of your Windows PC by using available flash memory and free RAM as an extra layer of performance-boosting cache. With new features and enhanced functionality, eBoostr now makes it easier and faster to configure the product and gives user a better control over the applications to accelerate.
eBoostr, working as an alternative solution to ReadyBoost and SuperFetch technologies, implements a different advanced approach to use flash memory to speed up your computer. The product speeds up applications loading times, improves overall responsiveness and makes your system run smoother. New version 3 now works on Microsoft Windows Vista effectively adding yet another layer of performance-improving cache to those built-in technologies. More than 2000 beta testers reported visible results on Windows Vista regardless of the amount of memory (RAM) installed.
Several improvements in load balancing mechanism, read requests parallelization in the new version optimize a hard disk and cache devices load leading to higher overall read speed and better performance.
More Accurate Statistics
New “flood control” feature detects massive file read requests from an antivirus, anti-malware scans, local computer search utilities etc., and effectively discards them from the working statistics. This ensures that the cache contents will have an optimal state and no space will be wasted with unneeded files or data.
Now you can decide which applications you'd like to be loaded into the cache for more acceleration. To give a priority for an application of your choice just drag-and-drop it from the list of detected apps or drag-and-drop an application shortcut from your desktop or start menu into the accelerated applications list.
eBoostr runs on any PC with Windows Vista/XP/2000/2003/2008, and allows using up to 4 cache devices with unlimited cache size on each device. The only requirement is USB 2.0 version (USB 1.1 is too slow.) eBoostr supports as cache devices:
- USB thumb flash drives (ReadyBoost Enhanced recommended);
- flash memory cards (CF, SD, SDHC, MMC etc);
- direct RAM cache or RAM disks;
- Intel Turbo Memory (on Windows Vista only);
- Solid-state drives (SSD);
- As well as additional hard disks.
Pricing and Availability
The free fully-functional trial version is available for download immediately from the eBoostr website at http://www.eboostr.com/download/

A digital video recorder (DVR) (or personal video recorder (PVR)) is a device that records video without videotape to a hard drive-based digital storage medium. The term includes stand-alone set-top boxes and software for personal computers which enables video capture and playback to and from disk.
Please expand and improve this section as described on this article’s talk page or at Requests for expansion, then remove this message.
The first DVR was tested on July 8, 1965, when CBS explored the possibilities of instant freeze-frame and rewind for sporting event broadcasts. Ampex released the first commercial hard disk video recorder in 1967. The HS-100 recorded analog video onto a digital hard disk and could store a maximum of only 30 seconds.
Hard disk-based DVRs
The two early consumer DVRs, ReplayTV and TiVo, were launched at the 1999 Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas. although ReplayTV won the best of show award in the video category, it was TiVo that went on to much greater commercial success. The devices have steadily developed complementary abilities, such as recording onto DVDs, commercial skip, sharing of recordings over the Internet, and programming and remote control facilities using PDAs, networked PCs, or Web browsers.
This makes the time shifting feature (traditionally done by a VCR) much more convenient, and also allows for trick modes such as pausing live TV, instant replay of interesting scenes, and skipping advertising. most DVRs use the MPEG format for encoding analog video signals.
The two consumer DVR brands in the United States are the TiVo and DNNA’s ReplayTV. In the UK TiVo has a small presence; Thomson, Topfield, Fusion, Pace and Humax also supply digital terrestrial (DTT) DVRs. BSkyB markets a popular combined EPG and DVR as Sky+.South African based Africa Satellite TV beamer Multichoice recently launched their PVR which is available on their Dstv platform.
Many satellite and cable companies are incorporating DVR functions into their set-top box, such as with DirecTiVo, DishPlayer/DishDVR, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8xxx, Motorola 6xxx from Comcast, Moxi Media Center by Digeo (available through Charter, Adelphia, Sunflower, Bend Broadband, and soon Comcast and other cable companies), or Sky+. In this case there is no encoding necessary in the DVR, as the satellite signal is already a digitally encoded MPEG stream. The DVR simply stores the digital stream directly to disk. having the broadcaster involved with (subsidizing) the design of the DVR–and directly recording encrypted digital streams–can lead to features such as the ability to use interactive TV on recorded shows, pre-loading of programs. It can, however, also force the manufacturer to implement non-skippable advertisements and automatically-expiring recordings.
Software is available for transferring programs recorded on DVR hardware to or from PC’s (e.g., TiVoToGo and DVArchive).
Software and hardware is available which can turn personal computers running Microsoft Windows, Linux and Macintosh into PVRs, and is a popular option for home-theater PC (HTPC) enthusiasts.
There are many open source and GPL-licensed DVR applications available for Linux:
- KnoppMyth – provides an out of the box MythTV based PVR solution
Commercial Linux version available from SageTV based on Gentoo Linux. Brightbox, a consumer electronics device, uses SageTV.
Elgato makes a series of DVR devices called EyeTV (400 / 500 / DTT etc.). The software supplied with each device (but available separately) is also called EyeTV. Elgato have recently released version 2.3 of their EyeTV software, with a redesigned interface, better program guide (built into the program) and a ‘One Click’ to iPod video feature. Miglia also makes DVR hardware that runs the EyeTV software, as well as DVR devices that use other software.
Other DVR products include myTV.PVR from EskapeLabs and ConvertX PVR from Plextor. MythTV (see above) also runs under OS X, but most recording devices are currently only supported under Linux. Precompiled binaries are available for the MythTV front-end, allowing a Mac to watch video from (and control) a MythTV server running under Linux.
Apple provides applications in the FireWire software developer kit which allow any Macintosh with a FireWire port to record the MPEG2 transport stream from a FireWire equipped cable box (e.g., Motorola 62xx, including HD streams). Applications can also change channels on the cable box via the firewire interface. Only broadcast channels can be recorded as the rest of the channels are encrypted. iRecord is a free scheduled-recording program derived from this SDK.
Microsoft Windows has several free DVR applications including GB-PVR, got all Media and MediaPortal. DScaler has also DVR support in works.
There also are several proprietary applications including SageTV, SnapStream Beyond TV, ChrisTV, Showshifter, Meedio (now a dead product – Yahoo bought most of the company’s technology and discontinued the Meedio line, and rebranding the software Yahoo go – TV, which is now a free product), InterVideo WinDVR, Recordit plus and the R5000-HD.
There is also a separate version of Microsoft Windows called Windows XP Media Center Edition which has DVR capabilities.
And Microsoft Windows Vista will include in its standard version the Media Center functionalities.
Television and video are terms that are sometimes used interchangeably, but differ in their technical definitions. Video is the visual portion of television, whereas television is the combination of video and audio modulated onto a carrier frequency (i.e., a television channel), so that multiple frequencies (i.e., multiple channels) may be transmitted at the same time.
Analog television in NTSC, PAL or SECAM formats, analog cable, or regular VHS tapes use a signal that is fed directly to the electron beam within the television set. there are a number of details on how this is done, but in essence each line in each frame corresponds to a specific fraction of time within the signal.
To record an analog signal a few steps are required. A TV tuner card tunes into a particular frequency and then functions as a frame grabber, breaking the lines into individual pixels and quantizing them into a format that a computer can comprehend. Then the series of frames along with the audio (also sampled and quantized) are compressed into a manageable format, like MPEG-2, or WMF, usually in software. Some TV tuner cards like the DVR-250/350 or the TiVo chip deliver an MPEG-2 or other compressed stream directly to the computer, performing both the frame grabbing and compression in silico. This greatly reduces the load on the CPU allowing an overall cheaper implementation.
Analog Broadcast Copy Protection
Many mass-produced consumer DVRs implement a copy-protection system called CGMS-A (Copy Generation Management System–Analog). This encodes a pair of bits in the VBI of the analog video signal that specify one of the following settings:
- Copying is freely allowed
- Copying is prohibited
- Only one copy of this material may be made
- This is a copy of material for which only one copy was allowed to be made, so no further copies are allowed.
CGMS-A information may be present in analog broadcast TV signals, and is preserved when the signal is recorded and played back by analog VCRs, which of course don’t understand the meanings of the bits. but the restrictions still come into effect when you try to copy the tape onto a Player.
Digital television is audio/visual signals that are broadcast over the air in a digital rather than analog format. Recording digital TV is generally a straightforward capture of the binary MPEG-2 data being received. No expensive hardware is required to quantize and compress the signal (as the television broadcaster has already done this in the studio). The MythTV DVR supports both international DVB signals and American ATSC signals while the HDTV Tivo supports only the ATSC signals. In the U.S., the FCC attempted to place a road-block before digital DVRs with its Broadcast flag regulation. Digital video recorders which had not won prior approval from the FCC for implementing effective digital rights management would have been banned from interstate commerce as of July 2005. The regulation was struck down on may 6, 2005.
DVD-based PVRs available on the market as of 2006 are not capable of capturing the full range of the visual signal available with high definition television (HDTV). This is largely because HDTV standards were finalized at a later time than the standards for DVDs. However, DVD-based PVRs can still be used (albeit at reduced visual quality) with HDTV since currently available HDTV sets also have standard A/V connections.
Satellite or Digital Cable
Recording satellite or digital cable signals on a digital video recorder is more complex than recording analog signals or broadcast digital signals. This is so because the MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 stream is usually encrypted to prevent people from viewing the content without paying for it (usually via subscription).
The satellite or cable set-top box does two things. First, it decrypts the signal. second, it decodes the MPEG stream into an analog, DVI, or HDMI signal for viewing on the television. In order to record cable/satellite digital signals you must get the signal after it is decrypted, but before it is decoded (between steps one and two); this is how DVRs built into set-top boxes work.
An alternative is that some satellite or (more commonly) cable set-top boxes have a FireWire port that can be connected to a computer. The recorded MPEG stream can be relayed to the computer via this FireWire port; though it can be done live, this is more commonly used for transferring shows from a set-top box with built-in DVR. (For instructions on doing this on a popular set-top box with DVR, please see the Wikibook entry How to use a Motorola DVR; some of the ideas there may apply to other set-top boxes as well.)
Many DVD-based DVRs are equipped with two DVD drives or an additional internal hard drive. This arrangement can be used to copy content from a source DVD, which is disallowed in the US under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act if the disc is encrypted. most such DVRs will hence not allow recording of video streams from encrypted movie discs.
Some DVD-based DVRs incorporate a Firewire connector which can be used to capture digital video from a MiniDV or Digital 8 camcorder, possibly recording a simple DVD as the camcorder is played back. Some editing of the resulting DVD is usually possible, such as adding chapter points.
Digital video recorders configured for physical security applications record video signals from closed circuit television cameras for detection and documentation purposes. many are designed to record audio as well. DVRs have evolved into devices that are feature rich and provide services that exceed the simple recording of video images that was previously done through VCRs. A DVR CCTV system provides a multitude of advanced functions over VCR technology including video searches by event, time, date and camera. there is also much more control over quality and frame rate allowing disk space usage to be optimized and the DVR can also be set to overwrite the oldest security footage should the disk become full. In some DVR security systems remote access to security footage using a PC can also be achieved by connecting the DVR to a LAN network or the internet.
Security DVRs may be categorized as being either PC based or embedded. A PC based DVR’s architecture is a classical personal computer with video capture cards designed to capture video images. an embedded type DVR is specifically designed as a digital video recorder with its operating system and application software contained in firmware or read only memory.
Hardware features of security DVRs vary between manufacturers and may include but are not necessarily limited to:
- Designed for rack mounting or desktop configurations.
- Single or multiple video inputs with connector types consistent with the analogue or digital video provided such as coaxial cable, twisted pair or optical fiber cable. The most common number of inputs are 1, 4, 8, 16 and 32. Systems may be configured with a very large number of inputs by networking or bussing individual DVRs together.
- Looping video outputs for each input which duplicates the corresponding input video signal and connector type. These output signals are used by other video equipment such as matrix switchers, multiplexers, and video monitors.
- Controlled outputs to external video display monitors.
- Front panel switches and indicators that allow the various features of the machine to be controlled.
- Network connections consistent with the network type and utilized to control features of the recorder and to send and/or receive video signals.
- Connections to external control devices such as keyboards.
- A connection to external pan-tilt-zoom drives that position cameras.
- Internal CD, DVD, VCR devices typically for archiving video.
- Connections to external storage media.
- Alarm event inputs from external security detection devices, usually one per video input.
- Alarm event outputs from internal detection features such as motion detection or loss of video.
Software features vary between manufacturers and may include but are not necessarily limited to:
- User selectable image capture rates either on an all input basis or input by input basis. The capture rate feature may be programmed to automatically adjust the capture rate on the occurrence of an external alarm or an internal event
- Selectable image resolution either on an all input basis or input by input basis. The image resolution feature may be programmed to automatically adjust the image resolution on the occurrence of an external alarm or an internal event.
- Motion detection: Provided on an input by input basis, this feature detects motion detection in the total image or a user definable portion of the image and usually provides sensitivity settings. Detection causes an internal event that may be output to external equipment and/or be used to trigger changes in other internal features.
- Lack of motion detection. Provided on an input by input basis, this feature detects the movement of an object into the field of view and remaining still for a user definable time. Detection causes an internal event that may be output to external equipment and/or used to trigger changes in other internal features.
- Direction of motion detection. Provided on an input by input basis, this feature detects the direction of motion in the image that has been determined by the user as an unacceptable occurrence. Detection causes an internal event that may be output to external equipment and/or be used to trigger changes in other internal features.
- Routing of input video to video monitors based on user inputs or automatically on alarms or events.
- Input, time and date stamping.
- Alarm and event logging on appropriate video inputs.
- Alarm and event search.
- One or more sound recording channels.
- Remote control.

It connects to compatible devices through the free GoFlex Media application, which operates on Apple iOS (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch) and any Android.
Seagate Technology senior vice-president and managing director of Asia-Pacific and Japan, BanSeng Teh, said, “no longer will a consumer feel as though it is a compromise to purchase a lower capacity tablet or iPad. with GoFlex Satellite, people will be able to carry their entire media library with them without the need for wires or the Web.”
The GoFlex Satellite has a stand-by battery life of up to 25 hours, with the ability to stream five hours of continuous video. the GoFlex Media App contributes to its battery life using a progressive download feature that sends the Satellite into stand-by mode after a portion of data is temporarily synchronised.
For large and fast data transfers, the hard drive is equipped with a USB 3.0 port and comes with a back-compatible cable. Seagate’s GoFlex Satellite is available from selected retailers and resellers for $219.
