  • I'm a Newbie - Hi!: what is the best way to get started?

    Hi,
    I'm retired but used to be a Senior Design Engineer with an aerospace components manufacturer.  The questionnaire didn't ask if I was retired!
    I have a basic working knowledge of computers and applications but I struggle with jargon, (i.e. I prefer the simple approach).
    My copy of Photoshop Elements 12 arrived yesterday.  I've just finished installing it!
    The instructions were quite clear as far as the installation went but I got a bit lost when the booklet started with the "Create an Adobe ID"
    It didn't seem to give any direction.  Any way somehow I managed to get here in the end having registered my product (twice - because I didn't see any activity after I hit the button the first time!).
    I own a Sony Alpha SLT A57 camera and also a Casio Exilim FH100 although the Sony is my weapon of choice for the most part.
    I'm on a basic photography course which leads to an intermediate and then ultimately an advanced course.  I also hope to follow on with courses that have been set up for Photoshop Elements too which are also available.
    I will be feeling my way for a while yet and I would appreciate some help (which will be needed inevitably).
    First of all, what is the best way for a guy with only basic skills to get started?
    Is there a page I can go to for help from first principles?
    I look forward to being a part of this community!

  • Use of Pieclient rendering on Blackberry - What's the deal ?

    I was starting work on designing a webdynpro app for the blackberry, and found that by forcing rendering of the client to pieclient or even better - pie03 client - I had a better usage of UI elements than with the default wml rendering.  The wml client does not render my tables (they dissappear) - but the pie03cleint does this just great (tables are populated and look pretty good).  In looking through the elearning area, I found that the demos actually used the pieclient on the blackberry as well...  Is the rendering of pocket pc client "pie03client" on the blackberry just and unofficially used item ?
    Thanks for any thoughts...

    Hi Michael
    The previous versions of blackberry doesn't have the capability to render good HTML in the browser.
    But the new version of blackberry browser is pretty good and supports good HTML rendering and that is why, what could be seen in the pocket internet explorer can now be seen in black berry browser.
    You can also use Naurtech browser and try with the same pie client. In general pie client can be seen on any browser with good html rendering, but there might be minor glitches.

  • What should my first step to OC be.....

    I  thought I would try to OC a little......I have tryed the D.O.T with MAT in normal mode.
    I tried up to "Captain" but I never got any better scores on 3Dmark03 or 2001.
    When turning Mat of and turning DOT on to captain my score in 3Dmark2001 dropped from 18100 to 16200.
    Am going to leave MAT= Turbo and OC just a little........
    QUESTION:
    Plz give me some advice how to give my computer a little more power....
    Should I go into bios and change the FSB from 200 to lets say...207 ?
    My corecenter now with MAT in turbo reads 203x15=3042
    I need an easy solution......what should I try.
    Plz have in mind that I never use to mess with bios or OC in any way...so keep it simple..plz
    Regards
    Lithesteel

    I really wouldn't try to OC any in your position with your CPU temps being what they are.
    Im surprised that they are that high. How many fans are in the sonata? I see that you have one installed. You should get an intake fan, that would help tremendously.  
    ANYWAY, here is some advice.  
    When overclocking, go up only 5 MGz at a time. At each interval, make sure the computer boots up correctly and windows runs fine. It would be a good idea to run some sandra CPU benchmarks and a 3dmark 03 run or two.  
    Increase FSB 5 MGz again and repeat process.
    You HAVE to monitor your temperatures though, make sure you don't break 60C. I don't even like to break 55C.  
    What surprises me is that I have the same HSF but I have 4x80mm case fans and I run MAX 39C even o/c'd to 3.3
    Eventually you will get to a point where your system will start crashing, becoming unstable. At this point you can either clock it back down to the last 5 MGz and keep it at that, or you can increase the voltage, but since your temperatures are so high already, I do not reccomend you to increase voltage at all.

  • What is the role of BIS server in blackberry?

    BIS refer to blackberry internet service ..it is just like an ISP = internet service provider...
    Hello,
    Actually, not quite "just like". An ISP provides primary internet connectivity to a computer/network, along with often other services (email, web, and other hostings). Most more recent BBs can, with no BIS-level service and using WiFi only, access the Internet just fine for web browsing and some other services. Further, many can, with just a generic data plan, access the same things via the Carrier Data Network. But, in neither case will any of the BB-proprietary services (e.g., BBM, email, BB Protect, etc.) function at all...all BB proprietary services require subscription to an adequate data plan from the mobile service provider.
    There further are many different levels of BIS plans...there are hundreds of carriers in the world, some with dozens of different BB data plans available. Some provide email and social networking only, but no web browsing. Others provide web and internet, but no social networking. And there can be quite a large number of variations given all of the different BB proprietary services. But, in all cases, they are provided by BIS...so BIS itself is the overall umbrella of BB-proprietary services, with the different carrier data plans enabling different mixes of those various available services...it all depends on what the user subscribes to from their mobile service provider.
    Hope that helps!

  • [Blackberry 8100] What are the best pic sizes for the blackberry?

      Hi, I am the proud owner of a new blackberry 8100 and I have a few questions.
      When I upload an image of 600x450 pixels to the media card, They display well, but when using the Zoom feature, the image starts to get blurry.  Now with a 600x450pixel image, I think the size would be large enough to get a closer zoom without the blurriness effect, but i'm a new user so I'm not really sure if I need a larger pixel image, or if I'm over-estimating the blackberry's Zoom feature and thinking it's a Zoom feature like Adobe's Photoshop. So what's the best recommendation for image sizes to be uploaded to the blackberry?
    Also one more question regarding the desktop Manager. I have Version 4.6.0.12  and when trying to access the Media Manger, the "Start" button is faded out, so I cannot access it.  Why is this option not available when the blackberry is plugged in as a Mass Storage device?

    The 8100 screen is 240x260 pixels.  Zooming in on the pic doesn't ever do the pic justice.
    Are you sure that Media Manager is installed?  Some installs of Desktop Manager don't include Media Manager.  If it's indeed installed, does it work if you turn off mass storage mode?

  • What is the latest version in the Blackberry Z10 operating system?

    What is the latest version in the Blackberry Z10 operating system?
    I read in the internet that there is an update to the BB OS but when I run the update on my device it gives me a message saying that I have the latest software; i.e.. 10.0.10.82
    Is this the latest, and if not, how can I get the device updated?

    The latest version available at the moment is 10.0.10.99 but updates are carrier dependent.
    So you have the latest version available for your carrier. Keep in mind that some small updates may not be applicable to your phone model or carrier network.

  • How to tell what's the latest OS 6 for BlackBerry​?

    I recently came upon the sticky that tells about all OS downloads for BB Pearls. I have a 9100 version, and I want to install OS 6 on it.
    1 - Does it matter what firmware I download? For 9100 versions or 9105?
    2 - How can I tell what is the latest firmware?
    Something like this...
    BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1476 (Multilangauge)
    Package Version: 5.0.0.1476
    Consisting of:
    Applications: 5.0.0.884
    Software Platform: 6.2.0.94
    File name: 9100_9105itutM_PBr5.0.0_rel1476_PL6.2.0.94_A5.0.0.​884_O2_IRE.exe
    File size: 132.72MB
    Or...
    BlackBerry Handheld Software v6.0.0.1479 (Multilangauge)
    Package Version: 6.0.0.1479
    Consisting of:
    Applications: 6.0.0.380
    Software Platform: 6.6.0.85
    File name: 9100_9105Asia_PBr6.0.0_rel1479_PL6.6.0.85_A6.0.0.3​80_Aircel.exe
    File size: 146.72MB
    What should I be looking at for the firmware version? Applications, or Software Platform?
    In this case, should it be Applications 5.0.0.884 and Software platform 6.2.0.94 that gives me an OS 6 or an Applications of 6.00.380 and Software Platform 6.6.0.85?
    3 - What indicates a newer version of OS 6?
    What should I be looking at to make sure I have the latest OS 6 version? A higher Package Version, Applications Version, or Software Platform?
    Thanks in Advance.

    hello,
    as indicated in the sticky post, each firmware for Pearl 3G work identically for 9100 and 9105. It's the line that says:
    "The OS installer is the same for both the 9100 and the 9105."

    usually all three numbers grow at the same pace. So between two releases, comparing the firmware version, the application version, or the software platform is the same at 99% of the time.
    But on the Blogosphere everybody talks of the Application version. That is the reason why it is colored in green in the sticky post.

  • Newbie: what is the equivalent of passing request parameters?

    Hi-
    I am new to JSF. I have read many tutorials and articles. I still don't get one concept about passing parameters. Note: I don't want to store stuff in the session unless I have to.
    Let's say I have a page with a list of users. I layout the page with a panelGrid. Each row of the table has the first and last name of the user. If a user clicks on the name of a user on the user list, it should go to the user profile page. The backing bean for the user list page will be the UserListBean. It has a method called getUsers() that returns a List of User objects.
    For the View User page, I have a ViewUserBean. The ViewUserBean retrieve the entire profile for that user.
    How do I pass the user ID to the ViewUserBean? In struts, I would pass it as a request parameter (I would manually write the link URL with the userID). I know I can use the request like that in JSF, but that seems ugly. I looked at the code of the J2EE bookstore tutorial and it does a funky thing with all sorts of data stored in the session.
    What is the best way to request a page and "pass in" a userID?
    Thanks for your help.
    Adam

    I have a case on my current project very similar to your case. What you want, very simply, is an easy way to allow faces to handle URLs like http://www.domain.com/showUserDetails?userId=50
    The natural trouble is that when loading the page, there is no action to use to prefetch the User object based on the Request Parameters in JSF.
    All the solutions above either rely on the session or they are exceedingly complex. This case is actually very easy to do and is very straight forward using Managed Properties and a Request Scope bean...
    Here is the rather straight forward solution I used...
    First, make a "ShowUserDetailsBean" which represents the "logic" for this page.
    public class ShowUserDetailsBean
        /** Will point to the actual user service after dependency injection*/
        private UserService userService;
        /** Will hold the userId from the HTTP Request Parameters*/
        private String userId;
        /** Will hold a lazy loaded copy of the User object matching userId*/
        private User user;
        public void setUserService(UserService userService) {
            this.userService = userService;  //dependecy injection
        public void setUserId(String userId) {
           this.userId = userId;  //dependency injection
        /** Lazy loads the User object matching the UserId */
        public User getUser() {
            //Trap the case where the URL has no userId
            if (userId == null) return null;
            if (user == null) {
                user = userService.getUser(userId);  //Lazy Load
            return user;
    }Next, configure the managed properties in faces-config.xml
    <faces-config xmlns="http://java.sun.com/JSF/Configuration">
      <managed-bean>
        <managed-bean-name>userService</managed-bean-name>
        <managed-bean-class>foo.UserServiceImpl</managed-bean-class>
        <managed-bean-scope>application</managed-bean-scope>
      </managed-bean>
      <managed-bean>
        <managed-bean-name>showUserDetails</managed-bean-name>
        <managed-bean-class>foo.ShowUserDetailsBean</managed-bean-class>
        <managed-bean-scope>request</managed-bean-scope>
        <managed-property>
          <property-name>userService</property-name>
          <property-class>foo.UserService</property-class>
          <value>#{userService}</value>
        </managed-property>
        <managed-property>
          <property-name>userId</property-name>
          <property-class>java.lang.String</property-class>
          <value>#{param.userId}</value>
        </managed-property>
      </managed-bean>Finally, you just make your webpage as you normally would...
    <h:outputText value="#{showUserDetails.user.userId}"/>
    <h:outputText value="#{showUserDetails.user.firstName}"/>
    <h:outputText value="#{showUserDetails.user.lastName}"/>
    Now you're ready to test, so you visit the page
    http://www.domain.com/showUserDetails?userId=50
    And your user details with userId=50 appears!
    It's just that simple!
    Regards,
    Doug
    Caveat: I haven't added any sample logic to handle cases where you visit:
    http://www.domain.com/showUserDetails
    without specifying a userId. I suggest you add some basic logic to your page to handle this case more gracefully.

  • IPod Touch Newbie: What is the purpose of the iTunes app on my iPod Touch?

    What is the purpose of the iTunes app on my iPod Touch?
    All it does is connect to the iTunes store if I'm near a WiFi connection. It appears to be useful only for impulse purchasing of media. So why is it not named "iTunes Store"? It appears to have no other function.
    Also, to listen to my iTunes music on iPod Touch I have to click on the Music button...not the iTunes app. What logic is that?
    Also, iTunes has synced a movie for me, but I have no clue how to view it on the iPod Touch. It doesn't appear in iTunes on the iPod Touch, and there is no "Movie" button anywhere. What am I missing? I can't find it anywhere.

    Hi
    1. I am very new to Business Objects and .Net. I need to know what's the best approach
    when intergrating bo into my web app i.e which sdk do i use?
    For now i want to provide very basic viewing functionality for the following reports :
    -> Crystal Reports
    -> Web Intellegence Reports
    -> PDF Reports
    2. Where do i find a standalone install for the Business Objects Enteprise XI .Net providers?
    I only managed to find the wssdk but i can't find the others. Business Objects Enteprise XI
    does not want to install on my machine (development) - installed fine on server, so i was hoping i could find a standalone install.

    To answer question one, you can use the Enterprise .NET SDK for each, though for viewing Webi documents it is much easier to use the opendocument method of URL reporting to view them.
    The Crystal Reports and PDF instances can be viewed easily using the SDK.
