being careful online

The truth is we do not anymore pay much attention about the dangers of the internet these days Perhaps, this may be because the use of online websites, search platforms, and social media platforms have become so common these days to the extent that we no longer feel threatened about the potential risks the web exposes us to.

So why exactly do we have to be very careful when dealing with the internet? Do we really have to be careful or are we exaggerating things? Here are some of the many reasons why safety should be the first policy. These reasons are exactly why you need to know where to find a VPN in Malaysia or whatever country you live in.

You can get hacked online.

Online hackers are not news to us and dealing with some is never a pleasant experience. They have been on the headlines since the time internet came to rise. This, however, does not make them any less dangerous. In fact, online hackers today are getting more and more creative and innovative when it  comes to obtaining access of social media as well as financial or bank accounts.

You might have stalkers.

Just because no one’s messaging you privately does not mean that no one’s checking you out online. You will never really know whether or not you have your own stalkers lurking in the internet. Stalkers have been rampant especially with the rise of social media platforms as it makes it easier for them to know their targets more.

Hence, you must be very careful in what you post online so as to not give them the opportunity to track you or get to know you more than they should. Perhaps, posting about your favorite books to read is fine but posting about your house number is a big no-no.

5 Effective Tips in Improving Your Personal Home Theater Experience

You’ve already established your very own theater at home; however, something feels lacking. Perhaps, you’re quite unsure as to what’s causing the void. Is it the lighting? Does the theater room need some cleaning? Or maybe it’s the bad sound system? The only way to find out is to actually take time and check it out. Test drive your theater to try and determine what improvements should be done. If you still can’t figure it out, have your friends or family help you out.

Even when you think your home theater is already perfect, there is always room for improvements and that is what this article will all be about. Here, we will introduce some tips which many homeowners have found effective.


  • Check Angles

One of the most common problems homeowners confront when it comes to home theater systems is bad angle. If the seats, the projector, the speakers or the screen is angled in a wrong manner–the whole cinematic experience is thrown down the drain. Remember to always check the angles so as to not give the audience a headache while doing a movie marathon. It’s best to research online as to how angles and proper distances should work; the details depend on the size of the room, size of the screen, or the type of sound system you’re running.

  • Improve Sound System

A great way to step up your home theater game is by improving your speakers. Try to use some awesome amplifiers to enhance the sound quality of your home theater system; you may check out Mark Muller’s Best Remember that for a cinema or home theater to work amazingly, the sound system experience should not be taken for granted. No one wants to watch a movie with painful bass sounds surrounding the room.

  • Design The Room

A themed home theater room is one of the best things in life. You can simply design the room with movie posters and other decors that match your taste. Whether a Marvel or Star Wars themed home theater, you can design it however you want. Friends and family, especially kids, will surely love to stay in this room.

  • Improve Lighting

Another common problem for personal home theaters is bad lighting. It’s possible that the screen is positioned by which glare could reflect on the screen and this is bad news as this will become annoying whenever watching movies. Re-positioning the seats and the screen may be necessary. The best advice is to cut out light sources of the room for you to be able to enhance the contrast of what is shown on screen.

  • Provide Comfortable Seats

Seriously, no one wants to watch a 1-2 hours movie while sitting uncomfortably. Make sure your seats are comfortable enough to not hurt your back even when you spend a lot of time sitting down. A comfortable couch or bean bags on the floor may even work well as long as they are comfortable. Try to avoid putting wooden chairs that will give you back aches.

Bottom Line

At the end of the day, you’ll have to test drive your home theater for you to be able to point out what’s wrong. Always keep in mind that there are ways to improve the theater experience not just for yourself but also for your family and friends whom you might invite over for a movie night.

Why Every Hospital Should Use Tyvek Tags

The healthcare industry is always looking for ways to cut down costs, without endangering patients and usually takes advantage of the latest advances of the science of materials. There is a notable exception to this rule, and it is the old faithful Tyvek, introduced over 4 decades ago which is still the most used material for tags, sterile suits and medicine packaging.

Reduce costs

The main reason for  Tyvek’s popularity is the cost-benefit ratio. This durable material with the same features as paper regarding the ability to write on is also tough, water resistant and acts more like a plastic.

Hospitals prefer Tyvek to paper as it does not deteriorate easily, does not age and is just better suited for an environment that requires sterilization.

The manufacturer’s site

“Since it was introduced to the industry more than 40 years ago, DuPont™ Tyvek® for medical packaging has been playing a key role in advancing medical device technology and protecting the health of literally millions of patients worldwide. Recognized as a standard of excellence in healthcare packaging, Tyvek® is used in virtually every form of sterile medical packaging and a wide variety of pharmaceutical packaging applications—both sterile and non-sterile.”

Tyvek is also used in patient wristbands to help identification and medication and is comfortable to wear, hypoallergenic and safe, even for infants.

Medical standards

Compliance to healthcare regulations is getting harder each day, as new standards emerge to make hospitals safer places and prevent infections. Tyvek has stood the test of time and its medical versions ending in letter “B” or “FS” were proven to be safe against bacteria penetration and fungi. The producer enlists the medical standards  which were used during the design and refinement of this material:

To give you an example of how safe this material is, just think that this is the stuff used to make the bunny suits that protect health workers against Ebola when interacting with contaminated patients.

It is also the fabric used in all surgical costumes, protecting the patient from infections and the doctors and nurses from the blood and body fluids resulting from surgery.

Better than paper

As described above, Tyvek is able to create a protective barrier, but it is also a great replacement for medical grade paper, as regards the particle penetration, deemed to be best protected against by Tyvek 1073B, resistance to breakage, moisture and a clean peel.

It is described to have a natural advantage over other materials since it is not woven, has no bindings and it is sterile, being totally synthetic.

Tyvek Tags and Pouches by Doranix prove how this material can be customized just like paper, it can be easily printed by a wide range of commercial printing solutions, such as inkjets or flexography. If you are looking for a way to keep track of your patients or to store medication in a lean system don’t hesitate to use a solution that promises to offer:

  • Excellent resistance to microbial penetration, even in highly contaminated environments and under the toughest conditions
  • Reduces risk of faulty packaging significantly.
  • Reduces contamination risk for the device it covers.

Printing your tags on Tyvek results in a highly resistant item, which is reusable as long as the information in up to date.

Toggle between GeForce2 GTS and Voodoo5 5500

I was primarily interested in two things when I first thought of doing a comparison of images rendered between a GeForce2 GTS and a Voodoo5 5500. The game Giants feature a number of graphical features that promises to deliver top-notch graphics. This page attempts to show the differences the two video cards make in Giants.

First of all, I will show you the option screens in the game as available in either video cards’ cases :

GeForce2 GTS


 Voodoo5 5500 nv_options1

Now, the individual tweak settings for each card via their Display Properties :

GeForce2 GTS
Default settings were used under its “Direct3D Options” except that :

  • 2×2 FSAA (slider Position 3) was used

Voodoo5 5500
Default settings were used under its “Advanced Features/Direct3D” except that :

  • 4-sample FSAA used
  • 3D Filter Quality set to “High”
  • Alpha Blending set to “Sharper”
  • Geometry Assist was “Enabled” (this actually enables “Direct3D T&L” option in the game)
  • Level-Of-Detail Bias set to “-2”
  • Mipmap Dithering was “Enabled”

The above settings for each card was configured to give the best image quality that each card can be tweaked to provide. I felt that this would make things more “realistic” since we want the best image quality each card can muster. I was also actually “forced” to choose 640×480 since I really wanted to show the effect FSAA can have in the game and going higher than 640×480 was unacceptably slow on either card. This is a decision I made since I am really impressed by the improvements FSAA made to the game – both in the case of the GeForce2 as well as the Voodoo5. Obviously, FSAA is a very subjective feature where some may find it an essential feature and is willing to lower resolutions in order to have FSAA enabled with playable framerates while others simply don’t give a rat’s ass about FSAA and will forever opt for ever higher resolutions.

Now, on to the actual comparison! Click right here and a new window will appear. Wait for the images to fully load in the gray box. I strongly suggest that you change your desktop resolution temporarily to no more than 800×600 since this will more or less emulate full-screen as it appears in-game. The new window will contain a Java applet where you are able to toggle between two screenshots :

(1) Default screenshot is that taken on a 3dfx Voodoo5 5500
(2) Move your cursor over the image and you will see a screenshot taken on a NVIDIA GeForce2 GTS

I will leave it to you guys to determine which looks better . Additionally you will also be able to see real-time framerates being displayed in both shots.
