Should I use a VPN to download torrents?

Should I use a VPN to download torrents?

Random image I found on Google Image search, but it explains what a VPN is very clearly.

 

VPN software is all over the internet, but so are the threats, and the answer to the main question in short is YES you should use a VPN.

A VPN stands for Virtual Private Network, and pretty much what their designed for is privacy, and security. If your wanting to download something that the government or another agency might not like you downloading you can use a VPN.

The way VPN works is simple. You usually download a software from a 3rd Party or use Windows built in connection tools. You login using your credentials and bam your VPN is set-up. Now your internet connection is ROUTED through the server your connected to. So all of your actions are personally hidden through what you are connected to.

This is useful for many reasons, but the main is privacy and security. Most people simple just feel like big brother is always watching them. Well he might, but who is always watching you is your ISP which in 9/10 cases in the United States will probably be Comcast (Come on Google Fiber!).

Yes if your downloading stuff you should not and Comcast catches you or your ISP than they will likely send you a warning. If you continue they will shut you down. Generally cases of online theft are not taken to court unless a company wants to make a public example of them.

Though it was recently proven that you can not take someone to court, and prove them guilty based on an IP address alone.

So if you want to start using an VPN service now (which is smart) I can recommend one.

Yup those guys are the best in the game, and no one can or should try to tell you otherwise. They don’t log your traffic which is GOOD.

The best way to clean your monitor

The best way to clean your monitor

clean-monitor

So many people including myself have long wondered, and asked the question what is the best way to clean a monitor? No real answer have ever truly dazzled me or likely yourself.

Most people just opt to get something like the Zeiss cleaning wipes which are inexpensive small wipes for screen, lens, and the store.

I discovered that one of the best ways to clean a monitor is with toilet paper, and water. Your probably pretty confused, but it’s true this is what I have found to work the best.

Toilet paper actually should be an obvious choice if you think about it. It is non-abrasive, and pretty absorbent. Toilet paper is soft, and not meant to hurt you let alone your screen. It might leave behind a few specks of dust from the paper which can easily be removed, but for the price of this cleaning option who would complain about something as simple as that.

Now this is not all I use. I have given in and bought those packs of Zeiss wipes from Wal-Mart. They work exceptionally well, are non-abrasive, and leave nothing behind. I find myself usually having to use between 3 and six wipes to clean a full size 22 inch monitor that has collected a fair amount of dust, with some hand prints, and some liquid specks from water, soda, or anything.

After I finish with the wipes I might go over it all with a small amount of toilet paper, and i’ll end up with a nice squeaky clean monitor.

You can also use the methods I just described to clean other things too like your smartphone, glasses, tablet, and just about anything else with a screen.

RGB vs CMYK

If your unsure of which to use than your in the right place.

RGB – Red, Green, Blue

RGB is an additive coloring method. These three colors can form any color in existence, but the problem is that ink cartridges do not come in RGB.

RBG is the color scheme that is associated with electronic displays such as CRT, and LCD monitors, digital cameras, and scanners.

RGB is an additive type of color scheme. It combines all three primary colors together (red, green, and blue) in various degrees to create a variety of different colors. For example white is when all three colors are combined together. When they are applied together at the lowest degree possible you get black.

Many photo editing software’s use RGB because it offers the widest range of colors to choose from. This is why you never see CMYK used in digital applications that are not designed to ever touch paper.

Pro tip: Photoshop (Raster Graphics) – Defaults to RGB

Pro tip: To avoid any discoloration when printing something make sure to convert the color mode of your image to CMYK before printing. If it is for something simple though usually the computer can handle the conversion and print what you see on screen just fine.

CMYK – Cyan, Magneta, Yellow, Black

CMYK is a subtractive coloring method. Printers print in CMYK mode even if the image your printing is in RGB. CMYK is a four color mode that uses the colors of cyan, magneta, yellow, and black together in all different degrees to create the desired colors.

It is a subtractive process, which means that each additional unique color means more light is removed, or absorbed, to create colors.

When the first three colors are added together you do not get black, but actually a very dark brown. The fourth color black is used to completely remove light from the printed picture so you perceive that area as black.

Pro tip: Adobe Illustrator (Vector Graphics) – Defaults to CMYK
