As a webmaster or someone who work in e-commerce business, you might experience with server down time. Actually no web hosting can guarantee for 100% uptime. That means 365 days a year and 24 hours a day without down time. Most of reasonable web hosting offer only 99% uptime guarantee. Uptime is very important for a server. Actually for a big IT company, down time can causes a big loss. A statistic says that approximately the average uptime of servers in the worldwide is 99.41%. It means that every year each site may be down as much as 52 hours.
I love graphic design and artworks. Graphic design is an art of visual way to communicate, through pictures, images and typography. Graphic design can be found everywhere in our environment today. It is used in the printed media like brochures, magazines, newsletters, invitations, posters, stationeries, and newspapers, or it can be in websites or any other media. For me, everything needs design.
Although I use graphic design mostly for web design and making web templates and blog templates, I also make graphic design for t-shirts, stickers and sometime for printed media and company logos.
Continuing my last post about having a computer skill for your job, there are lots of ways in learning computer. Having a computer skill is necessity but more over the computer skill in a certain area like programming, 3d and animation, office, database, scripting or computer graphic related is also needed according to the area you are working at.
Learning computer (IT) can be done in many ways you can choose which one is the best. The cheapest is learning by your self through various resources. This of course requires your independence and discipline because although this is the most flexible way to learn, this requires the most discipline.
Today, computer is a must gadget in every house, although maybe not everyone has internet connection, computer these days is like an important need for everyone. In present day, the children at school already get a computer lesson at school. This advancing technology causes a new tendency that everyone should be able to use computer. It is already becoming that people who don’t know about computer or can not use find a difficulty in getting a good job in competing with people who can.
Few years ago I was working for a local internet service provider company. Because my division is related to art, graphic design and contents, I didn’t involve so much about technical things. I still remember that it was the first time I heard about Cisco. Some of my technician friends were learning and struggling with that Cisco thing.
I just know that Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is a certification. It gives the certification to the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size route and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN. This certification is required for those who want a career in this area. From its original source, Cisco provides training and now the updated CCIE Routing and Switching certification (version 4.0) features new certification standards that reflect the job skills employers are looking for at the expert level.
For those of you who like traditional and antique items, this time I specially mad this blog header design for you. This header image is inspired by a friend of mine who is a Tibetan Buddhist. As usual I made this header image in size 900 pixels x 250 pixels. But because of the image composition I made, you can crop to whatever size you want. It is suitable for a blog about traditional and antique or cultural blog too.
