Computer Safety Rules

robot-sunset

Do computers interest you? Have you ever just had the urge to open one’s case and mess around with it? This is natural as they are very intriguing machines, and they are all around us. Sometimes it is hard to get through a full day without using a computer at some point in the day. But if you are dealing with computer hardware, precaution is necessary in
order to keep yourself and your computer’s components safe. There are some procedures that are recommended when removing and installing parts. Just like any other machine, there are always dangers when working with one. Here is a list of some computer safety rules to keep in mind.

1) Wear an anti-static wrist strap when handling a computer’s internal parts. Snap it around your wrist and connect the clip to a metal area of the computer case. This grounds you so that harmful electricity will not transfer between your hand and the parts you touch. Even fairly small amounts of electricity can cause costly damages to your machine.

2)Turn off and unplug the computer before working on it. This may be obvious to some, however, it is very important. Not only could you damage the components, but you could also injure yourself. So turn it off, unplug it, and then push the on button to allow any stored electricity to dissipate.

3)Use anti-static mats. Anti-static mats help prevent electrical current transfer from the floor(or other surface) to the computer. This is especially important if your computer is on a carpet. So just put the anti-static mat on the surface you are going to work on your computer and place the computer on top.

4) Clean your computer on a regular basis. Dust builds up on computer hardware and can cause the components to retain heat while they run. Over time, this can overheat the parts and cause them to malfunction or breakdown altogether. So it would be wise to dust your computer’s interior on a regular basis, being careful not to get any liquid on or touch any internal components too much. Just remember, if you are vacuuming out your computer, do not use any vacuum that would create an electrostatic charge, as this could damage the components. There are tool made specifically for cleaning electronics.

5) Also, make sure you never take power supplies apart. You really do not want to deal with them as they are the most dangerous part in your system. This list can and should be added to. Though it is a good start, in no way is it all-inclusive. You can never be too cautious when working with electronics. And unless you are an experienced user, you may want to hire a professional to install and maintain your computer’s components. But if you do decide to work on your computer, make sure to always be
cautious and safe. The potential of hurting yourself or damaging your computer is just not worth being lackadaisical about safety.

The Pros And Cons Of The All-in-one Computer Versus Traditional Desktops

VV

There are many choices in the computer market with different models and designs all created for different benefits and uses. Computer manufacturers design systems made for all possible uses with a variety of features to perform any type of computing task. There are also different models and designs available and a whole mobile sector that makes it easy to compute from anywhere without being tied to a plug.

As far as desktop systems go there are two main designs, the all-in-one and the traditional desktop computer system. Each has its own benefits and pros and cons. The choice sometimes comes down to how and for what the computer will be primarily used.

The all-in-one model is where the monitor and CPU are part of one unit so you do not have a CPU tower and a separate monitor that takes up more space as is the case with the traditional desktop system. The all-in-one eliminates the bulky and messy cables and connection wires that are part of the traditional set up.

There are some important differences between an all-in-one desktop computer and a traditional desktop computer. The traditional desktop is big and bulky. It can take up a lot of room, especially when you have a limited amount of space, with the CPU tower, plus the monitor as well as other peripherals, such as a printer or scanner.

The all-in-one also has no cables except for the power cord and peripheral cables and so it creates much less clutter under your desk. Overall the all-in-one desktop is able to provide you with much more space because of its compactness and size, which makes it much more space friendly. Another benefit of them is the fact that they come with notebook computer components, which require less power and generate less heat and so they save on power, which saves some money.

There are some cons with the all-in-one models. As opposed to the traditional desktop computer, which has plenty of room for expansion such as adding a hard drive or more memory, the compactness of the all-in-one leaves little room for it. So while the all-in-one is more efficient, it is less upgradeable. But unless you need a lot of features or you are a power user, the all-in-one because is a great choice for aesthetics, space and power saving benefits. However, for extreme gamers or power users the traditional system is a better choice.

Low Level Pc Poisons – Computer Fumes Dust And Gases

Training

Copyright 2006 Michael Madigan

Did you know computer equipment continually gives out small amounts of different gases and fine dusts? Some people are highly sensitive to these.

Plastic PC components are one source, as most plastics are unstable and break down naturally over time, especially when exposed to ultraviolet light and sunlight. (That’s the reason why they turn yellow and get brittle.)

Another source comes from vapour produced from traces of manufacturing materials slowly evaporating.

The gases and fumes given off are called ‘out-gassing’ and only occur in small amounts. But when the equipment is new, the out-gassing is greater and noticeable even to people who aren’t particularly sensitive.

This is similar to the smell that we get when we first get into a new car – out-gassing from the vinyl, plastic carpet and hard plastic interiors, as well as the wiring.

A new computer has a similar smell. So to some extent you can avoid outgassing, at least of ‘new’ volatile components, by buying a good quality ‘used’ PC.

Other office materials, particuliarly new furnishings, may also outgas – chipboard contains phenolic resins, which release trace amounts of formaldehyde; also carpeting (especially foam padding), paint and fabrics give off obnoxious chemicals when new.

People who have been sensitized (by previous exposure) may react badly to even very tiny amounts of these gases, by getting headaches, dizziness, and respiratory problems. The problems may persist even when the original cause is reduced, or disappears. In such a case it’s wise to seek qualified medical advice.

Casings may also be contaminated by fine brominated phenolic dust originally put on as a fire retardant, which can be blown out by fans, circulation or movement.

The best solutions are :-

– Initally, to run any new equipment in an empty well ventilated room to allow most of the outgassing to occur before use.

– Always work in a room with good ventilation and avoid continual high room temperaturesoutgassing will increase as the temperature rises.

Laser printers emit a lot of toner dust, which contains carbon and solvents, and quite a few people are sensitive to it. You can smell it when the printer is on, and especially on freshly printed-paper. You may notice wheeziness, coughing, and sneezing.

People working at copy centers and service bureaus often suffer from headaches, and toner dust is the main suspect. NCR paper (‘carbonless’ paper) can also cause wheeziness.

Good ventilation, drawing air away from the operator and filtering out particles, will help reduce these reactions, but effective ventilation in a commercial or home office is sometimes hard to achieve, especially in sealed buildings.

You can try going outdoors and breathing deeply for 10 minutes every hour or so. Open doors, maybe have a fan on., and avoid routine (multiple) photocopying every single document.

Think long term. Removing even mild poisons from your environment is yet another way to keep safe, stay fitter at the PC and enjoy a healthy computing career!

Evolution Of Computer Technology

A

Today computers are an indispensable part of the lives of human beings but at one point of time there were no computers. Knowing the history of computers and how much progress has been made can aid us in understanding just how complicated the invention of the computer really is. Unlike other devices, the computer is the one invention that does not have any one specific inventor. Throughout the development of the computer, various people have made contributions to making a computer work. Some of these inventions were those of complete computers or other additions that helped revolutionize the computer that existed at that time. One such invention was the Integrated Circuit.

The single most important year in the history of computers is 1936. It was in 1936 that the very first computer was created by Konrad Zuse who called it the Z1 Computer. This was the first system that was fully programmable. Even though there had been devices that had come and gone before this but they didnt match upto it because of its superior computing power. Till 1942 no business saw profits and opportunities in computers. The first computer company was called ABC computers and was owned and operated by Clifford Berry and John Atanasoff. Two years later in 1942 came the Harvard Mark I computer which furthered the science of computing even more.

The age of computers saw its biggest change ever in 1953 with the introduction of International Business Machines known today as IBM. The company has always been a key player in the development of new systems. This was the first real competition to bee seen in the world of computing and helped to encourage faster development of better computers. The first contribution of IBM was the IBM 701 EDPM Computer. A year after this the first high level programming language was brought to the centre stage. This was a programming language that had not been written in ‘assembly’ or binary languages and was called FORTRAN which was written to enable more people to be able to program computers. In the year 1955 Bank of America, Stanford Research Institute and General Electric joined hands to introduce the very first computer for use in banks.

After that the evolution was quick. Computers like Apple I and II, The Scelbi, Mark-8 Altair, TRS-80, the Commodore Pet computers and IBM 5100 were the leaders of the sector of home computing. The micro processor was like the heart of the computer and began with the Intel 4004. from then it has evolved into todays Pentium IV, Dual core and Core 2 Duo processors. Along with the evolution in Hardware came the evolution in software which went from assembly languages to todays languages like C++, Java and PHP. There is more to come in this field and that more will surely be AI or Artificial Intelligence. The term was coined by John McCarthy and is today a major field of study.
