How to Fix Your Cheesecake – A Troubleshooting Guide
RecoverySoft / August 20, 2018

A cheesecake should be relatively trouble free but occasionally problems do come up. Over the years, we’ve been asked the following questions. “What’s the easiest way to make crumbs for my crust?” Lots of folks use a food processor; we don’t bother. We use a heavy duty zipper-type plastic bag and crush the crackers or cookies with a rolling pin a few at a time. We save the plastic bag for the next crust. If we’re in a hurry, we just use packaged graham cracker crumbs rather than crushing crackers. “I have lumps in my cheesecake. How do avoid those?” Most likely the lumps are from globules of cream cheese in your batter. Before adding any of the other ingredients, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar together until completely mixed. The sugar crystals will cut through the cream cheese breaking up the globules. In the heat of the oven, the sugar will melt further breaking up any pieces. If your recipe calls for chocolate, either white or dark, the lumps could be chocolate. When the chocolate is mixed into the cool batter, it solidifies and creates lumps. To avoid that, make sure your melted chocolate is hot, well above…

iTunes Freezing – Why iTunes Keeps Freezing and How to Fix It
RecoverySoft / August 19, 2018

Do you have iTunes freezing problems? Do you complain that iTunes freezes up at random times? Before we get to fixing iTunes freezing problems, it is important to understand a little bit about iTunes itself. Among the many free media players available, iTunes is widely popular because of its close integration with two of the most sought-after electronic gadgets of our time: the iPod and the iPhone. Both devices require Apple’s media player for many reasons, not the least of which is the transfer of media files from computers to the portable device. Old-time users know, however, that iTunes has its good and bad sides. It is intuitive and sleek alright, but sometimes using the apps can be really frustrating. For one, frequent start-up problems or program freezes would surely test the patience of even the most ardent fans. These issues usually occur whenever new updates are installed, when a portable device is connected, when downloading content from the Internet, or when shutting down the program. Most probable causes of the instability are missing program files or the settings running askew due to recent updates. While this may not look like a life and death situation, it is nevertheless imperative…

Issues With External Hard Drive
RecoverySoft / August 19, 2018

An external hard drive can be described in simple terms as a hard drive that is portable, or one that can be transported around. Although this is a very simple definition of what an external drive is, the truth is that, it is pretty much the same as it is described above. However, we can be more specific by describing it as the portable version of the fixed hard disk, which comes with a USB casing that enables it to be used on various computers with the help of an USB cable. Other than the above given differences, there is no noticeable difference between a fixed hard drive and an external hard disk. We can confirm this due to the presence of various moving parts that are present both in a fixed disk and an external disk. The main purpose for which the external hard disk is used is also pretty much the same, which is data storage. However, in this case, the stored data can be transported along with the user and accessed on the computer of his choice. Some of the most common uses of the external disk are for storage of data, which usually eat up a…

Friends and Money: Debt or Relationship Recovery?
RecoverySoft / August 19, 2018

We've all heard it before. You should not mix business with friends or pleasure, but in most cases it's much easier to say than actually do. We usually enter into these agreements with the hope that the business will go to plan and the friendship will be stronger for it. After our best intentions, sometimes it does not always go to plan. So what happens when the project ends and the tax invoice have been issued, but months roll by without a payment. All of a sudden, you're in the unfortunate situation where you have to consistently, month after month, ask your friend for payment but they are now avoiding you. You want the money you're entitled to, but you want to salvage the friendship too so what do you do? Perhaps you should seek the services of a professional debt collector who can mediate the situation. This may seem a little rash to some, but remember money is what makes the world go round and by employing someone else to do your dirty work for you, you'll be able to concentrate on salvaging your relationship. In choosing a debt collector to pursue payment from your friend there are a…

Why Cloud Computing Is Important
RecoverySoft / August 19, 2018

Help Companies Save Money Companies can save a lot of money in their investment into cloud computing technologies that can help organizations take the burden of acquisition of servers, software, and people that are needed to stand up enterprise services, shared technology solutions, and deployment of customized or custom off the shelf solutions that are needed to support mission requirements of the enterprise.These solutions that are normally performed "in-house" within the boundaries of the organization can now be performed by outside vendors that specialize in niche technologies allowing them to provide cheaper solutions to their customers. These vendors have the resources, servers, software, and infrastructure in place that are needed to provide a specialized service to an organization. Companies end up saving more money because they do not have to do all the work that is required to set up the service, they just sign up with the vendor and outsource the service to the third-party that manages the technology that is delivered to their clients. Help Small Business Become More Efficient The economy is making it really difficult for small businesses to compete with mid-size and large scale organizations to gain new customers in their industry. These new customers…

Why Do We Need Software Engineering?
RecoverySoft / August 19, 2018

To understand the necessity for software engineering, we must pause briefly to look back at the recent history of computing. This history will help us to understand the problems that started to become obvious in the late sixties and early seventies, and the solutions that have led to the creation of the field of software engineering. These problems were referred to by some as “The software Crisis,” so named for the symptoms of the problem. The situation might also been called “The Complexity Barrier,” so named for the primary cause of the problems. Some refer to the software crisis in the past tense. The crisis is far from over, but thanks to the development of many new techniques that are now included under the title of software engineering, we have made and are continuing to make progress. In the early days of computing the primary concern was with building or acquiring the hardware. Software was almost expected to take care of itself. The consensus held that “hardware” is “hard” to change, while “software” is “soft,” or easy to change. According, most people in the industry carefully planned hardware development but gave considerably less forethought to the software. If the software…

Best Methods Of Data Destruction On Computer Hard Disk Drives
RecoverySoft / August 19, 2018

We are constantly reminded of the importance of recycling. In the ICT industry, recycling of computer equipment can be useful for educational or charitable organisations. It can however be detrimental to the previous owner. Charitable establishments such as Computer Aid International will refurbish computers for reuse in various sectors including education, health and other non-profit organisations for the benefit of developing countries. It would appear Computer Aid International ‘wipe’ each hard disk drive, which is good news as it hopefully provides some certainty that data cannot be retrieved. However, it is doubtful that the ‘average’ user realises the risks involved by selling their old computer on websites such as eBay. They may delete all their files, re-install the operating system (OS) and possibly format their drive, yet the data will probably reside on the disk, typically in unallocated space. Data fragments may be present that could be used maliciously in the hands of a criminal; indeed data from any source i.e. any electronic device could be used maliciously. Discarding computer equipment without due care could lead to irreparable, financial, political and personal damage to the owner or organisation. A recent study conducted by Glamorgan University (source: Time Online website) revealed…
