There are different problems that occur during browsing the internet. These problems are caused due to several reasons. Some times sites are working properly and fast. But some times there are some problems occur with our servers. Our servers open BSNL and opens DNS servers, so that they can update the server. To solve this problem, you can use DNS server to open any specific website.
DNS is the abbreviation of Domain Name System. This is a computer language to define any address or URL.
The DNS is in short, defines the address of different websites. For example, if you type any website in the address bar of your browser, it will automatically find the DNS server so that it could connect with the website. Without the DNS server it is not possible to connect to any website. On DNS server demand the server answer that contains an IP address. This IP address actually determines the location of the source.
Use of different DNS, when DNS default is slow
This is a normal problem when domain is moved and ISP banned the server to connect with any website. In such a case you can not view the websites and content of the page.
Anyone who is new to computers can make a lot of mistake; this can be very frustrating to the new user. However new desktop users can prevent a lot of unwanted frustration by knowing which mistakes to keep away from. Here are some basic mistakes Linux newbies make.
1. Working exe files
Applications made for windows will not operate for Linux. End users may download windows applications on a Linux operating system and when they click on the exe file in order to run it, it will not work. This will frustrate the new user who is not aware of this fact. Make sure you inform the new user that applications created for windows will not work for Linux unless they use a software called WINE.
2. Finding softwares
Because of new users jumping from windows to Linux, they expect softwares that run on the windows OS to run on the Linux operating system as well, however most softwares do not. Linux newbies have to get used to linux’s package management tools, tools like Ubuntu software center, packagekit and synaptic. These tools contain a host of softwares. A Linux newbie can find the application he requires from these tools. Read More
If you are finding ways to adapt MP4 to MP3, there are possibilities which are that you may need to alter an MP4 audio file to be played on your MP3 player. Now before you start to alter it lets first see the main differences between an MP3 and MP4.
MP3 (MPEG-1, Layer 3):
These are miniature in size having a high quality audio files that might be played on MP3 players or some softwares. An MP3 is easy to create by using a home computer and a ripper program that will copy a song from a CD to your computer and in the last you need an encoder that will switch your music to MP3 format.
MP4 (MPEG4 Part 14):
MP4 are dual mode operator that runs both the audio and video files as well. This file type allows for high quality streaming over the internet and coming generation cell phones which make MP4 players a hot product and these are downloadable on the internet within many sites like MP4dvanced.com, which I strongly counsel. MP4 players are there which are easy to download being online. Read More

On Tuesday evening Google has announced the forthcoming release of the Google Chrome operating System. It is a new open-source operating system which is primarily designed for netbooks but it is also for desktop computers. Yet this is the most direct attack made by Google on Microsoft.
After Android, Chrome OS is Google’s second operating system. Android is the mobile device operating system that has been introduced by the company in late 2008. That’s also about the time when Google introduced its Chrome Web browser. An extension of Google’s browser code is Chrome OS.
Here in this article I am sharing with you top 10 KDE4 applications that will be really useful for the developers who are in search of KDE4 applications.
Yakuake – Great Terminal Application
One of the very popular Quake-style terminal application is Yakuake. It remains in the background unless we invoke it with the (default) F12 global shortcut. It is able to inherit Konsole’s settings and probably it is the best alternative to Konsole. Yakuake is identical to Konsole, as it supports full transparency effects, various colour schemes and backgrounds, middle-click paste and tabs. I must say that it is definitely an essential tool.
Amarok 2 – The Most Popular Linux Audio Player
In the last few months Amarok’s port to KDE4 was probably one of the most controversial releases and it give rise to many discussions that whether Amarok 2 took the right way? My answer to this question is: yes.
From 3 years I have been using linux and most of the time Ubuntu or Kubuntu 2 months with suse because of its killer GUI. Today I have found an incredible distro of linux which is just 50mb small and it is free, and in addition to this its open source is called Damn Small Linux. By using LINUX we come across a couple of benefits the key ones are that it is secure, most of them are free, because of more vast developing features they attracts geeks. This distro is too small which makes it easy to carry it any where with you on any media possible boots.
Compared to its small size DSL (Damn Small Linux) is really having a lot of cool options more than what it sounds, it has such capability that you can run it directly from usb drive, cd or dvd, you can easily install it on hard disk and after that it will turn into a Debian base OS and the developer, you can also probably run DSL on Intel 486DX with 16 mb Ram,

Linux desktop arena is under battle and it is believed that GNOME is pulling ahead of today’s KDE in terms of design, stability, and usability.
Many of you won’t even believe that KDE has left behind GNOME in the desktop war since long. But what about now? Now the situation is totally different, and GNOME is pulling ahead of KDE. Still don’t believe? Let’s look at how this happened (We will be comparing GNOME version 2.22 or later with KDE version 4.1 or later.)
1: KDE 4
KDE4 was a redesign from KDE; and when it was released, you can say it wasn’t ready to be released at that time. It was not possible to configure KDE according to your exact specifications. In fact, KDE was taking a clear inspiration of Microsoft. The release was really painful, and was unable to get attention of users. This is what was given as feedback.
While GNOME is still moving forward in the same direction where it is moving since years.
2: Start menu
GNOME is providing three menus from the main panel:
Each menu represents the items you can find from it. Also, navigation the menus is efficient, elegant, and simple.
While, KDE4 is containing a really clumsy menu. Five visible tabs, when one clicks on the menu, are
- Recently Used
The ‘Favorites’ menu is containing System Settings and File Manager by-default. If you are to open an application, you have to click on Applications tab, then navigate to the category of the application, look for the application entry, and finally click on it. Isn’t it weird? Adding an application launcher widget to the panel is also irrelevant as chances are there that the panel will be full of launchers if you are in hobby of using a number of applications.
