There are many tools and resources for modern web developers to pick out the best Internet solutions. But you have to know where to go online to find these links. Sometimes you can find promotional ads and testimonials on other websites, but these are not reliable. How is it possible to gauge quality when selecting a provider?
I want to share a bit of insight towards locating and purchasing the right Internet connection. You have to understand the limitations of Internet speeds and how DSL connections will compare with other services. The prices are often much more affordable and you can access all of the typical websites you would find online. Be sure to spend a good deal of time investigating the options and weighing out your decision.
One place to start is at DSL Internet Providers which lists common features and companies you may look into. A big factor to consider is that DSL connections will run through your phone line. This means you need to be prepared to deal with a connection and how your services will run together. It is worth finding a local provider near your home or office so that installation is much quicker and easier.
Businesses and small companies would also be able to put together a bundle of DSL Internet along with their own separate phone line. This is not as complicated as it might sound considering the technology is already available. But this also means you will be paying the same company for your own Internet and phone line connection. The pros and cons should be evaluated, along with the price points and many other factors.
DSL Internet Connections
You can learn a lot by reading other articles online. Many techies have written blog posts and related websites dedicating to explaining solid Internet connections. One good place to start is How Stuff Works for DSL which goes into a much deeper explanation.
I think there are many developers and webmasters who are curious about broadband or fiper optics. These other types of Internet can work fine but they also cost more. It completely depends on your provider and where you are paying for the connection. This article on DSL vs. Cable Modems is an excellent piece worth looking into. The details are not too technical so I’d think that anybody can understand the explanations.
But overall DSL Internet is a great choice for homes and small businesses which can’t push(or can’t access) fiber optic networks. T1 and T3 lines are way too expensive unless you are running servers. Bury yourself into some of the content and see what you can learn. I have been especially pleased reading through the DSL Providers pages to study and understand the technology. Once you know how things work on the backend it will make a lot more sense when the time comes to purchase your own Internet service plan.

Developers and designers from around the world are constantly sharing their works online. You can find a whole bunch of PSDs released 5-10 years ago which are still available to visitors. It is magnificent to see how large the Internet has grown in recent years. This means there are only more tools available for locating high-quality website graphics.
I want to share some insight towards embedding graphics in your layouts. More specifically how you may go about locating HQ graphics throughout the web. I know many designers have their own ideas and you should incorporate those as well! No single method is going to be 100% reliable, it depends on the project and the designer’s influence.

MEGA is the latest cloud-based service from Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom. Dotcom has been in the media lately not only because of the launch of his new service, but also his continuing legal woes surrounding his web sites. MEGA is similar to Megaupload in a lot of ways but offers enhanced encryption that is supposed to protect the site and the user.
This encryption makes it impossible for an outside source to know what is being shared unless they download it. By then, they are in muddy water, because they have possibly downloaded an illegal file themselves but because they did not know about it ahead of time, in the eyes of MEGA, that takes away the liability from the site.
File sharing services like MEGA are used every day by blogs and web sites to share content. Videos, music and even books are shared illegal through these services and that is why MEGA is trying to change how we share. There are ways out there to find copyright and royalty free music, movies and more, we just have to take the time to find them instead of relying on what happens on sites like MEGA.
Not everyone using MEGA is trying to break the law, but file sharing sites can make it easier to do just that. Is MEGA standing on a thin line? Perhaps, but only time will tell if this new strategy will protect it and its users from the law. For now, MEGA is here to stay, and it is up to users to decide if it is worth the risk.

It’s the end of September. And you guys know what that means, in as little as 13 weeks, Christmas is upon us. As we slowly get into the Christmas spirit, do check out these cool content from the 9Rules network.
The role for vitamin D in hippocampal and dopamine system development suggests effects on learning and memory and motor and/or reward systems may be possible. But longitudinal studies in humans are needed to fully address this question. These take time, so it may be years before we get the complete picture. Even with such studies, given the breadth and complexity of its roles in the brain, the sub-clinical effects of vitamin D deficiency may be subtle, diffuse, and difficult to detect. This is particularly the case in the more moderate form of deficiency common in the US and other developed countries.
Vitamin D has a far greater contribution to brain development than most people know about. If you’re expecting or you already have a baby, make sure that he or she doesn’t lack Vitamin D. (more…)
