Working With Computers in Everyday Life
by Owen Jones

Nowadays most people and their grandmothers are using computers on a daily basis to access the Internet and even the so-called computer illiterate operate computers in items that they have not yet grasped contain them. We are all working with computers all the time whether we realize it or not.

Equipment at work, the car, the mobile telephone and the ATM all have computers built-in to make them more efficient or indeed to make them work at all. Everyone ought to attempt to take that small leap to learning how to use a computer with a keyboard, especially if they are under fifty.

Not only are we all working with computers, but we are all working with mainframes – the sort of computers that NASA applications for its calculations. "Where?," you might ask. Well, when you go to the self-service garage and punch in what you would like and how you are going to pay for it, the computer on the petrol pump checks its supplies to see whether it can deliver that amount

Then it tells Head Office that it has delivered that amount and that stock levels have to be decreased by that much; then it checks you credit card details with the banks' mainframes and then you are free to have your card back and go on your way. And not before. If you do try to escape early, it will already have taken a snapshot of your face and almost certainly your car's registration plate too.

Do you have a security tag to get into work? That will be an RFID (radio frequency ID) tag, which will be communicating with the firm's mainframe computer to tell it that 'employee xxx' has turned up for work, and it will probably keep details of where you are at every other moment of the day too.

Some individuals used to enjoy doing a little automobile maintenance once a week or once a month (OK, lots did not as well), but that is now a thing of the past. Before anyone knows what is wrong with a vehicle, they have to plug it in.

If you go to a main dealer, that information will go into the firm's database to help it create a better car next time (or maybe they will use the data to make certain that it breaks down earlier next time – planned obsolescence).

The point here is that if you do not have an inkling of what computers can do or indeed are doing, you will become left behind, standing incredulously in the past wondering what happened to your old life. The easiest way to find out what computers can do is to start working with computers on a conscious level.

There is only one problem with this piece though, and that is that because you are reading it on line, I am talking to someone who is already working with computers. Never mind, I tried.

How to Configure an Authoritative Time Server in Windows Server 2008

Author: Richard n Williams

Time synchronisation in modern computer networks is essential, all computers need to know the time as many applications, from sending an email to storing information are reliant on the PC knowing when the event took place.

Microsoft Windows Server from 2000 onwards has a time synchronisation utility built into the operating system called Windows Time (w32time.exe) which can be configured to operate as a network time server.

Windows Server 2008 can easily set the system clock to use UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, the World’s time standard) by accessing an Internet source (either: time.windows.com or time.nist.gov).

To achieve this, a user merely has to double click the clock on their desktop and adjust the settings in the Internet Time tab.

It must be noted however, that Microsoft and other operating system manufacturers strongly advise that external timing references should be used as Internet sources can’t be authenticated.

To configure the Windows Time service to use an external time source, click Start, Run and type regedit then click OK.

Locate the following subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters\Type
In the right pane, right-click Type then click Modify, in edit Value type NTP in the Value data box then click OK.

Locate the following subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Config\AnnounceFlags.
In the right pane, right-click AnnounceFlags and click Modify. The ‘AnnounceFlags' registry entry indicates whether the server is a trusted time reference, 5 indicates a trusted source so in the Edit DWORD Value box, under Value Data, type 5, then click OK.

Network Time Protocol (NTP) is an Internet protocol used for the transfer of accurate time, providing time information along so that a precise time can be obtained
To enable the Network Time Protocol; NTPserver, locate and click:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpServer\
In the right pane, right-click Enabled, then click Modify.

In the Edit DWord Value box, type 1 under Value data, then click OK.

Now go back and click on
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters\NtpServer
In the right pane, right-click NtpServer, then Modify, in the Edit DWORD Value under Value Data type In the right pane, right-click NtpServer, then Modify, in the Edit DWORD Value under Value Data type the Domain Name System (DNS), each DNS must be unique and you must append 0x1 to the end of each DNS name otherwise changes will not take effect.

Now click Ok.

Locate and click the following
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpClient\SpecialPollInterval
In the right pane, right-click SpecialPollInterval, then click Modify.

In the Edit DWORD Value box, under Value Data, type the number of seconds you want for each poll, ie 900 will poll every 15 minutes, then click OK.
To configure the time correction settings, locate:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\config
In the right pane, right-click MaxPosPhaseCorrection, then Modify, in the Edit DWORD Value box, under Base, click Decimal, under Value Data, type a time in seconds such as 3600 (an hour) then click OK.
Now go back and click:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\config
In the right pane, right-click MaxNegPhaseCorrection, then Modify.

In the Edit DWORD box under base, click Decimal, under value data type the time in seconds you want to poll such as 3600 (polls in one hour)
Exit Registry Editor
Now, to restart windows time service, click Start, Run (or alternatively use the command prompt facility) and type:

net stop w32time && net start w32time
And that’s it your time server should be now up and running.
