10 Aug Configure Your PC to Use HDMI

HDMFor reasons I don’t really understand, Windows* seems to ignore the HDMI* port when you plug something in, so we’ll have to power it up and tell the computer it’s fine to send a signal out on the line.

That’s done by going into Control Panels and selecting “Adjust screen resolution”. On that window you’ll see that it shows there are two different displays, but one of them will be disabled.

To remedy this, click on the second monitor, then choose “Extend the desktop onto this monitor” and click “Apply”.

The HDTV screen should come to life and show you a Windows desktop background photograph.

If it doesn’t, try again.

Sometimes you have to select this more than once.

It is recommend that you now tweak the resolution on the second screen to be at least 1100 x 650, depending on what options you have. It mostly works out with 1184 x 666.

The goal is to have the background photo spread across the entire TV screen. Now make sure you have the sound unmuted and at a reasonable volume on your computer and on the TV and let’s get some content on the screen!

10 Aug SECURITY TIPS AGAINST KIDNAPPING

missing-and-abducted-children-header1

  • Keep emergency numbers with you at all times. You can create speed dial numbers in your mobile phone just in case you find yourself in a very compromising situation.
  • Do not give away any personal information such as our phone numbers and home address, especially on social networking websites or to persons unknown to you.
  • Watch what and where you speak, especially on the phone. A lot of people have no sense of security while speaking, and could end up bragging yourself into being kidnapped and asked to pay a ransom.
  • Be alert to suspicious and unusual behaviour around you.
  • Be discrete in your philanthropic gestures as this could make you a target.
  • Do not discuss financial matters in open places and not even in the car or within the hearing of your domestic staff.
  • Do not leave your children in a car unattended, particularly while shopping, refueling or on social outings.
  • Schools should install CCTV in the school surroundings to monitor activities in and around the premises especially at opening and closing times.
  • Avoid going out alone.
