Fish Kill Prevention Using Arduino

Check out this Arduino project site dedicated to helping minimize fish kills due to lack of oxygen in the water.
The project was done by a team of trainees coming from the top schools in the region–hardware and software skills were brought to bear on this challenging task.

Web Resources from IHT

For General Purpose websites:
AOL owned (good for personal sites, but no themes)

  • has lots of themes
  • (with social networking)
  • DooID also big on social networking
  • (good support, html5)
  • Breezi Less laid back than Wix)
  • For Portfolio Sites:

  • Zerply
  • Muck Rack
  • Contently
  • Carbonmade
  • Graph your Facebook Network

    netvizz v0.8

    This application allows you to extract data from different sections of the Facebook platform for research purposes. It creates network files in the gdf format (a simple text format that specifies a graph) as well as statistical files using a tab-separated format.

    These files can then be analyzed and visualized using graph visualization software such as the powerful and very easy to use gephi platform or statistical tools such the interactive visualization software Mondrian.

    Big networks may take some time to process. Be patient!

    Hyper-V Replica

    From: Microsoft Virtualization Secrets by John Savill

    Hyper-V Replica is a NEW feature in windows Server 2012 that enables asynchronous replication of a virtual machine’s storage from one Hyper-V host to another Hyper-V host. After the seed replica is store, only delta (changes) are replicated periodically, every 5 minutes. In the event of a disaster, sys ads can activate the replicated virtual machine.

    Configuring Replication is done via the “Replication Configuration ” setting where you can select the transport protocol to use. either over port 80 (http) or 443 (https). Then you enable individual machines to have a replica through the “Enable Replication” action, which starts up the enable replication wizard.
