[Tips & Tricks] 100 Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.7.x) Features, Tips & Tricks (+1) :)

Yeah, it's kinda outdated. But a man gotta do what a man gotta do, right? Seriously, that's also kinda a bummer too *sigh* Nevertheless Me gotta use what tools Me got in hand, and that tool is an Early 2006 MacBook, so this OS X is also kinda the most latest OS she'll ever have. So bear with me and here's the 100 Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.7.x) Features, Tips & Tricks (+1) :) :) :)

1.       Battery Status
If you've secretly suspected that your MacBook's battery isn't working correctly, Snow Leopard can tell you what your geek senses have know all along. In the menu bar you can check the status of your battery, and hopefully you won't see "Service Battery."
2.       QuickTime X video record
Need to record a quick video with your iSight or USB camera? You can record directly from your iSight camera in QuickTime X. If you're lucky enough to have a higher-quality camera, you can not only choose the camera and audio source directly from the QuickTime X window, but also decide where the video will be saved.
3.       Language and texts
In the System Preferences, choose Language & Text. A new tab called Texts has a Symbol And Text Substitution feature. Type ( c ) and you get © among other commonly used symbols. Make your own shortcuts! Of course, the app in question has to support it, but in general, you can do things like type “awesome” to substitute your name, “address^^” to substitute your address, and so on.
4.       Time is relative
Automatically set the time zone you happen to be in. Navigate to the Date And Time preference in System Preferences and check off "Set time zone automatically using current location." Perfect for travelers.
5.       QuickTime 7 isn't dead yet
QuickTime X is great. It gives users most of the QuickTime Pro features for free. But for die-hard QuickTime users that need more than a few screencasts and minimal export control, you can install QuickTime 7 from the Snow Leopard disc. Check the Optional Installs folder. Open the Optional Installs, and there's QuickTime 7 ready to be installed. Snow Leopard will find your previous QuickTime 7 preferences, and adds your registration number to the QuickTime 7 preferences.
6.       No Leopard, no problem
If you're running Tiger on your machine, don't worry. You can install Snow Leopard without having Leopard installed on your Mac first. Apple would like you to purchase the $169 Mac Box Set, but you don't actually need to. You just saved a ton of money!
7.       OpenCL hungers for graphics cards
We've been told by Apple that OpenCL-enhanced applications will scream with compatible video cards. What happens if you cram your Mac Pro with multiple video cards? We asked Apple, and they said if an application is built to support OpenCL and the video cards are supported, the application will indeed get a speed boost.
8.       Start up in 64-bit
If you want to make the kernel start up in 64-bit, hold the 6 and 4 keys on the keyboard at startup. Though applications can still run in 64-bit while the OS is 32-bit, starting up in 64-bit will be marginally faster. Be wary of losing application support, though.
9.       32-bit kernel vs. 64-bit kernel
Is running a 64-bit kernel really that great? We talked to Apple about this, and they told us that what you're doing when you hold down the 6 and 4 buttons during startup is actually booting the kernel into 64-bit mode. For 99.999% of users out there, booting up as usual with the 32-bit kernel is more than adequate. Your 64-bit applications, including the Finder, will still run super quick while the kernel is in 32-bit mode. There is no difference in the speed of 64-bit applications while your kernel is in 32-bit mode. 64-bit mode is useful only to hardcore users and servers.
10.   But I just bought a Mac!
Don't worry if you bought a Mac on, or after, June 8. Apple's Up-to-Date program means you can get Snow Leopard for $10. Hurry though, you have until December 26, 2009. Which'll be here before you know it.

[Tips] Role of Page Optimization in SEO

Been reading few articles in the READBUD.COM, until Me stumble upon yet another article about SEO, which is Page Optimization in SEO.

Get's me thinking a whole more course of it that I haven't been worked on yet.
It said that there are two types of Page Optimization in SEO:
  1. On-Page Optimization
  2. Off-Page Optimization
On-Page Optimization is what we do about our page that will improve the rating or it's visibility within the search engines. Like Customizing it, put some Page Optimization in SEO code in it, et cetera,et cetera...
The other one, which is Off-Page Optimization, is basically all of the other  process we do for improving our page outside the page itself. Like using some outside services to create link to our page (yes, Linking In or Backlink of our page does count very much in Page Optimization in SEO, see me previous post on SEO matter), pinging service, etc.

Here we will talk on the first option. Mainly it concern on our web page hidden features it-self, which will boost the likeliness of our page to be found when people go to the search engines, which is our main objective of Page Optimization in SEO. They are:

Number to Word with MS-EXCEL (USD sample)

Continuing the previous post on how to spell number to Indonesian Words, here Me tried to share on how to do it in English.

Option Explicit
'Main Function
Function SpellNumber(ByVal MyNumber)
    Dim Dollars, Cents, Temp
    Dim DecimalPlace, Count
    ReDim Place(9) As String
    Place(2) = " Thousand "
    Place(3) = " Million "
    Place(4) = " Billion "
    Place(5) = " Trillion "
    ' String representation of amount.
    MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber))
    ' Position of decimal place 0 if none.
    DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".")
    ' Convert cents and set MyNumber to dollar amount.
    If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
        Cents = GetTens(Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & _
                  "00", 2))
        MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace - 1))
    End If
    Count = 1
    Do While MyNumber <> ""
        Temp = GetHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3))
        If Temp <> "" Then Dollars = Temp & Place(Count) & Dollars
        If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then
            MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) - 3)
            MyNumber = ""
        End If
        Count = Count + 1
    Select Case Dollars
        Case ""
            Dollars = "No Dollars"
        Case "One"
            Dollars = "One Dollar"
         Case Else
            Dollars = Dollars & " Dollars"
    End Select
    Select Case Cents
        Case ""
            Cents = " and No Cents"
        Case "One"
            Cents = " and One Cent"
              Case Else
            Cents = " and " & Cents & " Cents"
    End Select
    SpellNumber = Dollars & Cents
End Function

Number to Word with MS-EXCEL (IDR sample)

This is the function to make my life easier (in the Excel Term though :^_^):
Function Terbilang(n As Long) As String 'max 2.147.483.647
    Dim satuan As Variant, Minus As Boolean
    On Error GoTo terbilang_error
    satuan = Array("", "Satu", "Dua", "Tiga", "Empat", "Lima", "Enam", "Tujuh", "Delapan", "Sembilan", "Sepuluh", "Sebelas")
    If n < 0 Then
        Minus = True
        n = n * -1
    End If
    Select Case n
        Case 0 To 11
            Terbilang = " " + satuan(Fix(n))
        Case 12 To 19
            Terbilang = Terbilang(n Mod 10) + " Belas"
        Case 20 To 99
            Terbilang = Terbilang(Fix(n / 10)) + " Puluh" + Terbilang(n Mod 10)
