Most of us use flash drives to store our data but what if you lose it somewhere or damage it somehow? Some of us external hard disks but what happens if it suddenly crashes? What if your computer’s hard disk fails? There are alternative solutions for backing up your data online while you are working.

You started to hear about Web 3.0 but still don’t know what is it about? You still don’t know what is exactly the Web 2.0? In this article I am going to introduce both web 2 and web 3.
The term web 2.0 consists of giving site visitors the ability to make changes to the web pages, linking people to other users, providing fast and efficient ways to share content and expanding access to the internet beyond the computer. A Web 2.0 site gives its user the choice to interact and collaborate in a virtual community. Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites like facebook and myspace, blogs, wikis, video-sharing sites like youtube and other web applications.
If your laptop/desktop is running Microsoft Windows Vista OS (which most consumer computers that shipped beginning in January 2007 do), it already runs parts that meet the current requirements of Windows 7. If the laptop runs Vista, it will run Windows 7.
For non-Vista systems you can download the Upgrade Advisor to see if your laptop qualifies. To give you a little more detail, to run Windows 7 your computer must have the following:
Windows PC users can hold their heads up high again—after the Vista fiasco, Microsoft needed a big win, and Windows 7 might just be the ticket. In fact, you could say that this is the Windows operating system we’ve been waiting for.
The Internet is filled with people trying to make a name for themselves by breaking your code, crashing your site, posting inappropriate content, and otherwise making your day interesting. It doesn’t matter if you have a small or large site; you are a target by simply being online, by having a server that can be connected to. Many cracking programs do not discern by size, they simply trawl massive IP blocks looking for victims. Try not to become one.
When on a shared host, security simply isn’t going to be as strong as when on a dedicated host. This is one of the tradeoffs for the inexpensive fee. Shared hosting environments perhaps ought to be considered from the security mindset in the same fashion as a compromised system (that which has or may have been already cracked into).
In order to secure our web applications I read some resources in order to identify different types of vulnerabilities and what are the measures that should be taken to protect our applications. In the first part I will talk about vulnerabilities and measures that should be taken for protection. In the second part you will find a checklist to be used when developing any application. In the appendixes you will find examples about filtering, validations and other security related issues.
