Trend Micro Titanium 5.0 consists of antivirus of different levels that is meant either for simple scanning or PC cleaning, web security and businesses that require security from all types of PC or web threats.

It protects your machine from viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, pharming, phishing, malicious cookies, botnets and even rootkits. Is not intrusive, eliminates fake antivirus or those malwares posing as antivirus software and blocks email and image spam.

It is lightweight, thus, keeping your system running without compromising its speed and performance.

Titanium 5.0 offers several applications bundled on your antivirus when you purchase it such as:Trend Micro Mobile Security for android and symbian OS. It keeps your other devices, no just your PC from harmful application and malwares. If trend micro have an app for android and symbian, ofcourse they also have safe surfing for mac; so as to keep mac users from harmful sites. Data theft—an application which prevents you from sharing private information to the web or keeps you from hackers. Another is the Web threat protection which protects you from malicious web sites and allows you to do safe search.  Antispam detects if the message sent to you contains malicious files or was sent to multiple receivers. They also have an application for parents: the Parental control. In here, parents are able to block sites that they don’t want their children to visit or they could also limit the surfing time of their child. Temporary or not so important files, and applications can cause your machine’s performance to slow down, therefore, Trend micro came up with a user friendly application such as System Tuner. It allows the user to clean their machine without doing many and difficult instructions. They also have the Secure Erase; an application that overwrites your data one to seven times, depending on your preference to guarantee that the file won’t be recovered by any means.

And land but not the least is the Safe Sync. It lets you store documents in the cloud for you to be able to access it anytime and anywhere.

Trend Micro is not your ordinary antivirus that focus only on cleaning and prevention of infection but it also give you the satisfaction and assurance that you are well protected and secured in so many different ways.

The Fighting is Over

When the fighting is over
Coz our mouths have just run dry
As our feelings get colder
There’s nothing to hold us now
Gave all this time just to be let down

Can you explain to me?
What has become of us?
With words released
We can never take them back
Not even pleading can save us

I know you’ll meet someone better
But would you still think of me
If he can’t hold you like I did
Would you run back to me?
Yes, I know this pain shall pass
Gave all this time still we couldn’t last

Explain to me
What has become of us?
With words released
We can never take them back
For all that were worth now
Not even pleading can save us

How did we end this way?
Our promises thrown away
All the years we built, broken up
See it crashing down
I have to say
Though alone in this crazy sea of faces
It’s still your face I wanna know

Explain to me
What has become of us?
With words released
We can never take them back
For all that were worth now
Not even pleading can save us
Can’t save us now

The fighting is over
The fighting is over
The fighting is over
The fighting is over now…

In the world without walls and fences, who need Windows and Gates?:)

Curiosity — the main reason that urged me to explore outside the box.

Information and technology is too mainstream that it had been available to everyone. It’s like the lunch box made by my mom when I was still in grade school — it’s pack with everything I need, and if I’m lucky, i’ll get a box of candy with assorted flavors.But since technology grew way too fast, I then realized that somehow, I could enjoy it better if I would be able to ride with its fast changing phase.
College came. I was allowed to pick the course I want and I was so lucky to have found Computer Engineering since I was inspired by how engineers think and I also like to be one of the Computer intellects.

Now, windows used to be my food; the only food I  am capable of digesting. ’twas the one thing that I am able to use since I know of computers. I play with it and thought nothing could compare to its ‘superiority’. But then, as I grew with the course I took, I came to  explore it enough that I could say I almost knew every about it. I was able to prove that last year in my internship at a BPO company which was ofcourse filled with lots of computers which we need to maintain. Yes, it’s a job but then again, it’s a privilege to explore and play with so i learned a lot about it. Then, the part where you search for something different came. I became too busy with learning windows that I fail to realize that there are so much things I need to know. Things that are available for me to learn but failed to do so because of the limited resources I have.  So in my second internship, I came to taste another flavor that arouses with the demand of almost all of the companies my course is compatible with. I mean, only few know Linux and most of them are already computer intellects. Since I want to know more of something others don’t, I came to pick a company that could fill me with the knowledge I crave while being an intern.
In here, learned how Linux began, it’s main thought/ why the author made this, how it works technically and how to make a program with it.
Yes, we all know that it was made by Linus Torvalds but what we don’t know is why did he came up with the idea of creating an Open Source Operating System. I mean, at first I thought that because it’s an open source, how would he be able to get rich with his work? Then I realized that it was something Bill Gates made me and others think of. It was like you can only acquire this certain knowledge if you buy it which would be greater if shared freely.
Operating Linux required a certain amount of technical acumen; it was not as easy to use as more popular operating systems such as Windows, Mac OS, or IBM’s OS/2. Because its volunteer developers prided themselves on the quality of their work, however, Linux evolved into a remarkably reliable, efficient system that rarely crashed. You see, you get it for free and at the same time, you are pushed to explore and learn it because without doing so, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy using it.

The last internship I had gave me the opportunity to learn more of the ‘hardware’ part of computers so now, I wanted to know more of the ‘software’ part and that was when the company assigned me to the ‘Development Department’. At first, I was afraid for they might expect a lot from me but I don’t really know more about it. I fear to fail their expectations not knowing that it was the other way around. My mentor/boss thought me the basics of programming–from scratch. Oh dear it was so fun! I had my backbone with it so it became easier for me to explore it on my own.

The company was great! And I can say that it is because of the people running it. From the CEO to the house keeper, they all made the company comfortable to work to. To give a brief description on how they made my stay enjoyable, ofcourse I would direct it with Engr. Meric Mara– the CEO of 8Layer Technologies. Unlike any other CEOs, he was the one whom you could play jokes with. Someone willing to share his knowledge to anyone as long as he thinks it would help him. He could joke around and laugh as if there’s nothing to worry about, he makes you think everything’s OK and that you don’t need to put pressure on yourself and on your work. And because of him, everyone feels like more of a companion rather than a horrible boss. If the company was the tree and he was the root, therefore, the fruit/employees are healthy and sweet.

Being able to study at a state university, we are limited with so many things which taught us lots of morals. It might sound good and bad at the same time– bad for us students because we can’t have the luxury of consuming information because it is not readily available but it is also good because we find ways to learn it on our own. It is something that greatly help us on the outside world. Students from other universities may acquire the same knowledge we have but they might not be able to use it to the fullest because they don’t know how to enjoy the things that gave you a hard time to acquire.

I remember getting my first project. Sir Rey, my mentor told me to create a web page like that of a certain  site to prove that I had learned from what he taught me. It was really astonishing because it was my second day with him as my mentor and exciting at the same time. I thought he trust me that much and believed that I could do it because creating a site that’s made by a pro for only 3 days was really something. But then again, I made it! That was when company projects flew their way to my hands. It was hard and great!

Being a Linux user is sort of like living in a house inhabited by a large family of carpenters and architects. Every morning when you wake up, the house is a little different. Maybe there is a new turret, or some walls have moved. Or perhaps someone has temporarily removed the floor under your bed.

List inside a List (Dropdown Menu)

If you want to know how to make a dropdown menu, you must first know how to write a list inside a list. Fist, write a normal or basic list.
<ul>
<li>fries</li>
<li>chicharon</li>
<li>burger</li>
<li>ice cream</li>
</ul>

Now, let us write a list inside the fries list.

*On HTML:

<div id=”navcontainer”>
<ul id=”navlist”>
<li><a href=”#” id=”current”>fries</a>
<ul id=”subnavlist”>
<li><a href=”#”>wedge cut</a></li>
<li><a href=”#”>buffalo fries</a></li>
<li><a href=”#”>twister fries</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href=”#”>chicharon</a></li>
<li><a href=”#”>burger</a></li>
<li><a href=”#”>ice cream</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

Now, we define the attributes.
Remember, to make a list horizontal, we use display:inline;
To remove the HTML list bullets, set the “list-style-type” to “none”.
To remove this left-indentation consistently across all browsers, set both padding and margins to “0” for the “UL”.

div#navcontainer
{
position: relative;
font: small-caps bold small/24px “Times New Roman”, serif;
text-align: center;
}

ul#navlist
{
border-top: 1px solid #fff;
margin: 0;
width: 480px;
}

ul#subnavlist
{
border-bottom: 2px solid #aaa;
border-left: 1px solid #aaa;
border-right: 1px solid #888;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
position: absolute;
top: 30px;
width: 120px;
}

/* all buttons */
ul#navlist li > a:link, ul#navlist li > a:visited, ul#navlist li * a:link, ul#navlist li * a:visited
{
text-decoration: none;
width: 120px;
}

#navlist li
{
display: inline;
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

/* parents */
ul#navlist li > a:link, ul#navlist li > a:visited
{
background: #0ff;
border-bottom: 5px solid #ccc;
border-top: 0;
color: #c00;
float: left;
}

ul#navlist li > a:hover
{
background: #aaa;
border-bottom: 4px solid #eee;
border-top: 1px solid #fff;
color: #000;
}

/* children */
ul#navlist li * a:link, ul#navlist li * a:visited
{
background: #ccc;
border-bottom: 0;
border-top: 2px solid #bbb;
color: #777;
display: block;
float: none;
}

ul#navlist li * a:hover
{
background: #999;
border-bottom: 1px solid #888;
border-top: 1px solid #eee;
color: #fff;
}

CSS Lists

I have been developing a new page lately. And because I am a beginner in the field, I use Paddings and Margins to seperate list.
Until I encounter the <ul> and <li> tags. I felt noob. I mean, seriously? How could I make an easy job hard? With the use of these tags, lists and menus are easily separated.

The <ul> tag defines an unordered list. While the <li> tag consists of lists in bullet type.

List Style Position

Determines whether the bullet is located inside the list’s containing box or outside.

<ul style=”lsit-style-position:outside;”>
  <li>Water</li>
  <li>Coffee</li>
</ul>

<ul sty;e=”lsit-style-position:inside;”>
  <li>frapuccino </li>
  <li>espresso</li>
</ul>

And here is how it will appear:

*Water
*Coffee
   *frapuccino
   *espresso

What if I want my list to look like a menu?

We must identify each attribute and indicate the type of list we want on our stylesheet.

In example:

<div id=”menu”>
  <ul>
   <li><a href=”about.html”>ABOUT MY PAGE</a></li>
   <li><a href=”presentation.html”>PRESENTATION</a></li>
   <li><a href=”downloads.html”>DOWNLOADS</a></li>
   <li><a href=”terms.html”>TERMS OF USE</a></li>
   <li><a href=”contact.html”>CONTACT ME</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

Now, you may define the attributes on your stylesheet.

#menu {
  float: left;
  height: 40px;
  width: 950px;
}
#menu ul{
  margin:0;
  padding:0;
  padding-top:8px;
  margin-left: 20px;
}
#menu li{
  display:inline;
  padding-left: 40px;
  padding-right: 40px;
}

as you can see, we wrote INLINE at #menu li{} so as to make the list horizontal. Hence, the codes we have just written will appear as follow:

ABOUT MY PAGE  |  PRESENTATION  |  DOWNLOADS  |  TERMS OF USE  |  CONTACT ME

There are too much to learn and share but everything has its own end.

Remember that errors come from elements you often neglect and you think are unimportant

With the use of CSS

After having a short tutorial about CSS with Sir Rey last week, he gave me an assignment to see what I have learned. To tell the truth, I was excited and worried at the same time. Excited because I would be able to test my skills and a bit worried for I don’t know how it would end up. I mean, ’twas my first time to do a detailed page on my own. But nevertheless, I was able to finish the outline in 11 hours! Not bad for a first timer eh? 🙂

If you’re asking if I have encountered any problems, well I can say that I had some. And it’s funny because the lapse are too negligible.
So based on my experience, I will give you some DOs and DON’Ts to prevent errors on your page.

  • HTML

HyperText Markup Language elements form the building blocks of all websites. HTML allows images and objects to be embedded and can be used to create interactive forms. It must start with the <HTML> tag and end with </HTML>. Within the HTML tag, there are 3 main tags that are needed to create a page. First would be the <HEAD> tag, followed by the <TITLE> that is written within the <HEAD></HEAD>tags. Last would be the <BODY> tag where the page is constructed. It is important for beginners to study HTML first before CSS, PHP and the like because they are all incorporated with HTML.

  • NESTING.

It is several different constructions and activities where information is organized in layers or objects contain other similar objects. So how important can this be? With nesting, you will be able to define each and every tag you make. And it will make troubleshooting easier because the informations are classified and it is easier to look at. In example:
<div id=”facebook”>
<a href=”http://www.facebook.com/murasakiHime&#8221; target=”_blank”>
<img src=”promote.jpg”>
</a>
</div>
in my example, <div> and </div> are aligned. same with <a> and </a> so it is easier to see the flow of your program and closing tags are not forgotten or replicated.

  • How CSS works

CSS, which stands for Cascading Style Sheet makes your program lighter. External Style sheets can save a lot of work because it is stored seperatedly as a CSS file and is linked on the HTML file to save space and make the program look a lot simple.It also enable you to change the appearance and layout of all the pages in a Web site, just by editing one single file!

  • ID and Class

<div id=”twitter” class=”highlight”>
<a href=”http://www.twitter.com/himegamihime”&gt;
Follow Me
</a>
</div>
In this example, the id specifies a unique id for an element. If you want to give your id a certain attribute, you simply call it with # within your stylesheet. Hence, it would appear as #twitter.
next is the class. it specifies the classname for an element. Instead of putting a hash tag before the class, it should be a dot. In example: .highlight. To know more about id and class, I will state an example.

.highlight{cursor:pointer}
a{text-decoration: none; color:gray;}
a:hover {text-decoration: none; color:orange;}
#twitter{
font-size:13;
font-family:helvetica, sans serif;
font-weight:normal;
}

If you want to have different id with the same class, you should state the name of the id before the class so as to specify the name of the element in which you want to use the same class. For example, you have
<div id=”twitter” class=”highlight”>
<a href=”http://www.twitter.com/himegamihime”&gt;
Follow Me
</a>
</div>
<div id=”tumblr” class=”highlight”>
<a href=”http://www.tumblr.com/blog/murasakihime21″&gt;
Follow Me
</a>
</div>
<div id=”facebook” class=”highlight”>
<a href=”http://www.facebook.com/mursakiHime”&gt;
Follow Me
</a>
</div>
You are to specify each class. It should appear as:
^for the class:
.highlight{cursor:pointer}
#twitter a{text-decoration: none; color:gray;}
#twitter a:hover {text-decoration: none; color:orange;}

.highlight{cursor:pointer}
#tumblr a{text-decoration: none; color:gray;}
#tumblr a:hover {text-decoration: none; color:orange;}

.highlight{cursor:pointer}
#facebook a{text-decoration: none; color:gray;}
#facebook a:hover {text-decoration: none; color:orange;}

^for the id:
#twitter{
font-size:13;
font-family:helvetica, sans serif;
font-weight:normal;
}
#tumblr{
font-size:15;
font-family:times new roman, sans serif;
font-weight:bold;
}
#twitter{
font-size:10;
font-family:arial, calibri;
font-weight:normal;
}

There are too much to learn and share but everything has its own end.

Remember that errors come from elements you often neglect and you think are unimportant like colon, semicolon, period, space, and in some languages, capitalization.
