Drupal:CMS in PHP for Creating Websites

Drupal is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) and content management framework (CMF) written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License which means anyone is free to download it and share it with others.

The standard release of Drupal, known as Drupal core, contains basic features common to content management systems. These include user account registration and maintenance, menu management, RSS-feeds, page layout customization, and system administration. The Drupal core installation can be used as a brochureware website, a single- or multi-user blog, an Internet forum, or a community website providing for user-generated content.

Although Drupal offers a sophisticated programming interface for developers, no programming skills are required for basic website installation and administration.

Drupal runs on any computing platform that supports both a web server capable of running PHP (including Apache, IIS, lighttpd, and nginx) and a database (such as MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MongoDB or Microsoft SQL Server) to store content and settings. Drupal 6 requires PHP 4.4.0+ while Drupal 7 requires PHP 5.2 or higher.

You can download Drupal 7.9 using the following link:

Internet Explorer 9 features

Internet Explorer 9 features a simplified interface to put the focus on websites. The address bar and search bar have been combined into the One Box. Tabs stack along the very top. Sites load incredibly fast in Internet Explorer 9, and can also be pinned to your taskbar for one-click access. Tracking Protection in Internet Explorer 9 provides an added level of control and choice about the information that third-party websites can potentially use to track your browsing activity.

        Chakra, the new JavaScript engine, compiles the JavaScript into highly efficient machine code in the background, while interpreting the JavaScript in the foreground. Internet Explorer 9 provides built-in developer tools which aid developers in rapid prototyping, testing, and debugging webpages by making changes to code from within the browser itself which can then be previewed. Hardware-accelerated text, video, and graphics mean your websites perform like the applications that are installed on your Windows-
based computer.

Note : You need to have Windows Vista or Windows 7 to run IE 9.

How to Create a Shortcut to Start a Remote Desktop

If you frequently use Remote Desktop to connect to computers remotely, having a desktop shortcut to automatically launch a Remote Desktop connection to a specific computer can reduce the amount of time required to accomplish this task-especially when you use Remote Desktop to connect to several different computers. Copy the Remote Desktop shortcut to your desktop; then modify it to connect immediately to a specific computer when it is launched.

Steps to Follow:

1.Right-click the Remote Desktop icon on the Start menu, and click "Copy."
2.Right-click on the desktop, and click "Paste Shortcut." A copy of the Remote Desktop icon appears on the desktop.
3.Right-click the new Remote Desktop shortcut, and click "Properties."
4.Click inside the box labeled "Target," and use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the cursor to the end, after "mstsc.exe."
5.Insert a space after "mstsc.exe," and then type "/v:(address)" where "(address)" is the IP address or fully qualified domain name of the computer that you are connecting to. Do not include quotation marks. For example, if the IP address is, the new shortcut would read "%systemroot%\system32\mstsc.exe /v:"
6.Double-click the shortcut to connect to the computer at the address you have entered.
