          RE[7]: Hate'em or love'em...        
My aren't you smug. It was stated that the Mini does not have an equivalent in the PC world, and it does the Shuttle X100. While not the same price, it has equivalent features, and the hardware is probably identical aside from the softROM that Apple uses instead of a hard BIOS. It having to run OS X wasn't part of the statement; it was form factor versus form factor. So it won't run OS X, big deal. To be accurate, it won't run Aqua; the core of OS X, Darwin, can be downloaded and ran on x86 hardware. I'd suggest to anyone that they just buy commodity hardware and run Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, or Darwin on it if they want a Unix since it would serve them better in the long run rather then using OS X. The only thing that was attractive about Apple hardware was the PowerPC architecture. Now that is gone, I don't have a reason to look at Apples anymore. By the way, I'm posting this from my PowerBook G4 running OS X 10.4. There are some cool programs that run on OS X, so I'll probably keep it around for now. I'm less married to an OS then I am to either what it runs on or what I can do with it.

Stop Dreaming start Action (Mau mencoba dan berkarya)

Kata-kata stop dreaming start action mempengaruhi pikiranku, mungkin kita banyak bermimpi atau berkayal untuk mendapatkan sesuatu, mungkin cita-cita bisa selangkit harapan dan keinginan bisa tinggi setinggi gunung. Tapi apakah semua itu kita dapatkan yang kita harapakan tentu tidak karena masih ada tidakan yang harus kita lakukan, itu yang membuat kita susah untuk mendapatkan yang kita inginkan.
Perlu kita ingan didunia ini apa sih yang kita dapatkan dari bermimpi? mukin belum ada didunia ini orang yang kaya atau sukses hanya dengan duduk-duduk, tidur-tiduran atau bermalas -malasan, mungkin ada tapi hanya sedikit yang kita temukan atau bisa dibilang kaya dari warisan,atau terlahir dari anak orang kaya bisa juga suskse dari keberuntungan. Mimpinya orang film sinetron.
Saya banyak mendapatkan kiriman email dari Bapak Joko susilo yang banyak memberi masukan dan motivasi ilmu tentang hal kesuksesan, itu yang mempengaruhi pikiranku sekarang. Mungkin klop aja dari dunia ilmu yang saya geluti yaitu komputer terutama dibidang internet, banyak hal yang saya terima dari kiraman emailnya.yaitu tentang slogan blog harus mempunyai slogan penting. Jadi slogan saya di blog adalah tentang membuat animasi flash. Dimana saya dituntut untuk lebih bayak berkreatifitas dalam berkarya, ada juga email yang dikirimkan kepada saya tentang 6 cara menumbuhkan kreativitas. Saya sangat berterima kasih kepada bapak Joko susilo, walaupun karya saya tidak bagus tapi itu membuat saya berarti karena keinginan saya sejak kecil terwujud sekarang.
Kreativitas yang saya buat hanya untuk menyalurkan hobie, tapi setidaknya saya tidak bermimpi untuk bisa melakukannya walaupun saya tidak pintar menggambar. ungkin rekan - rekan semua bisa sama seperti saya mungkin ada bisa memwujudkan imipin anda walupun hanya sesaat. Hidup selalu penuh pengorbanan dan perjuangan dan kita pasti mendapatkan kemulian dari usahanya.

Flexible parameter settings give you absolute control over data recovery.


          a long, slow and extremely boring process        

KDE Project:

it took me nearly 2 months to go through 7 years of code.
and I came to the sad reality that only 5% of it is reusable and interesting
even the embedded firewall product is not that interesting anymore since it's based
on an ancient technology (namely freebsd 4.x) so I decided to ditch it too, no more new version
and no support for it since I don't have the setup for doing it. What I will do is
to take the knowledge and some of the cool concept I got while designing it and reimplement them
using something more modern, here my goal is to not let die the best thing (even if sometime it was
a pain in the ass) I managed to do in the past 7 years.

my idea is to merge most of the stuff (concepts, ideas etc) from the various branches even those who were basicly
"let try this to see if it make senses". I love some of those crazy ideas :D

          LLDB: Sanitizing the debugger's runtime        
This month I started to work on correcting of the ptrace(2) layer, as test suites used to trigger failures on the kernel side. This finally ended up sanitizing the LLDB runtime as well, addressing LLDB and NetBSD userland bugs.

It turned out that more bugs were unveiled and this is not the final report on LLDB.

The good

Besides the greater enhancements this month I performed a cleanup in the ATF ptrace(2) tests again. Additionally I have managed to unbreak the LLDB Debug build and to eliminate compiler warnings in the NetBSD Native Process Plugin.

It is worth noting that LLVM can run tests on NetBSD again, the patch in gtest/LLVM has been installed by Joerg Sonnenberg and a more generic one has been submitted to the upstream googletest repository. There was also an improvement in ftruncate(2) on the LLVM side (authored by Joerg).

Since LLD (the LLVM linker) is advancing rapidly, it improved support for NetBSD and it can link a functional executable on NetBSD. I submitted a patch to stop crashing it on startup anymore. It was nearly used for linking LLDB/NetBSD and it spotted a real linking error... however there are further issues that need to be addressed in the future. Currently LLD is not part of the mainline LLDB tasks - it's part of improving the work environment. This linker should reduce the linking time - compared to GNU linkers - of LLDB by a factor of 3x-10x and save precious developer time. As of now LLDB linking can take minutes on a modern amd64 machine designed for performance.

Kernel correctness

I have researched (in pkgsrc-wip) initial support for multiple threads in the NetBSD Native Process Plugin. This code revealed - when running the LLDB regression test-suite - new kernel bugs. This unfortunately affects the usability of a debugger in a multithread environment in general and explains why GDB was never doing its job properly in such circumstances.

One of the first errors was asserting kernel panic with PT_*STEP, when a debuggee has more than a single thread. I have narrowed it down to lock primitives misuse in the do_ptrace() kernel code. The fix has been committed.

LLDB and userland correctness

LLDB introduced support for kevent(2) and it contains the following function:

Status MainLoop::RunImpl::Poll() {
  in_events.resize(loop.m_read_fds.size());
  unsigned i = 0;
  for (auto &fd : loop.m_read_fds)
    EV_SET(&in_events[i++], fd.first, EVFILT_READ, EV_ADD, 0, 0, 0);
  num_events = kevent(loop.m_kqueue, in_events.data(), in_events.size(),
                      out_events, llvm::array_lengthof(out_events), nullptr);
  if (num_events < 0)
    return Status("kevent() failed with error %d\n", num_events);
  return Status();
}

It works on FreeBSD and MacOSX, however it broke on NetBSD.

Culprit line:

   EV_SET(&in_events[i++], fd.first, EVFILT_READ, EV_ADD, 0, 0, 0);

FreeBSD defined EV_SET() as a macro this way:

#define EV_SET(kevp_, a, b, c, d, e, f) do {    \
        struct kevent *kevp = (kevp_);          \
        (kevp)->ident = (a);                    \
        (kevp)->filter = (b);                   \
        (kevp)->flags = (c);                    \
        (kevp)->fflags = (d);                   \
        (kevp)->data = (e);                     \
        (kevp)->udata = (f);                    \
} while(0)

NetBSD version was different:

#define EV_SET(kevp, a, b, c, d, e, f)                                  \
do {                                                                    \
        (kevp)->ident = (a);                                            \
        (kevp)->filter = (b);                                           \
        (kevp)->flags = (c);                                            \
        (kevp)->fflags = (d);                                           \
        (kevp)->data = (e);                                             \
        (kevp)->udata = (f);                                            \
} while (/* CONSTCOND */ 0)
This resulted in heap damage, as keyp was incremented every time a value was assigned to (keyp)->.

Without GCC asan and ubsan tools, finding this bug would be much more time consuming, as the random memory corruption was affecting unrelated lambda function in a different part of the code.

To use the GCC sanitizers with packages from pkgsrc, on NetBSD-current, one has to use one or both of these lines:

_WRAP_EXTRA_ARGS.CXX+= -fno-omit-frame-pointer -O0 -g -ggdb -U_FORTIFY_SOURCE -fsanitize=address -fsanitize=undefined -lasan -lubsan
CWRAPPERS_APPEND.cxx+= -fno-omit-frame-pointer -O0 -g -ggdb -U_FORTIFY_SOURCE -fsanitize=address -fsanitize=undefined -lasan -lubsan

While there, I have fixed another - generic - bug in the LLVM headers. The class Triple constructor hadn't initialized the SubArch field, which upsetting the GCC address sanitizer. It was triggered in LLDB in the following code:

void ArchSpec::Clear() {
  m_triple = llvm::Triple();
  m_core = kCore_invalid;
  m_byte_order = eByteOrderInvalid;
  m_distribution_id.Clear();
  m_flags = 0;
}

I have filed a patch for review to address this.

The bad

Unfortunately this is not the full story and there is further mandatory work.

LLDB acceleration

The EV_SET() bug broke upstream LLDB over a month ago, and during this period the debugger was significantly accelerated and parallelized. It is difficult to declare it definitely, but it might be the reason why the tracer's runtime broke due to threading desynchronization. LLDB behaves differently when run standalone, under ktruss(1) and under gdb(1) - the shared bug is that it always fails in one way or another, which isn't trivial to debug.

The ugly

There are also unpleasant issues at the core of the Operating System.

Kernel troubles

Another bug with single-step functions that affects another aspect of correctness - this time with reliable execution of a program - is that processes die in non-deterministic ways when single-stepped. My current impression is that there is no appropriate translation between process and thread (LWP) states under a debugger.

These issues are sibling problems to unreliable PT_RESUME and PT_SUSPEND.

In order to be able to appropriately address this, I have diligently studied this month the Solaris Internals book to get a better image of the design of the NetBSD kernel multiprocessing, which was modeled after this commercial UNIX.

Plan for the next milestone

The current troubles can be summarized as data races in the kernel and at the same time in LLDB. I have decided to port the LLVM sanitizers, as I require the Thread Sanitizer (tsan). Temporarily I have removed the code for tracing processes with multiple threads to hide the known kernel bugs and focus on the LLDB races.

Unfortunately LLDB is not easily bisectable (build time of the LLVM+Clang+LLDB stack, number of revisions), therefore the debugging has to be performed on the most recent code from upstream trunk.

          pkgsrc 50th release interviews - Ryo ONODERA        

The pkgsrc team has prepared the 50th release of their package management system, with the 2016Q1 version. It's infrequent event, as the 100th release will be held after 50 quarters.

The NetBSD team has prepared series of interviews with the authors. The next one is with Ryo ONODERA, a Japanese developer maintaining large C++ packages.

Hi Ryo, please introduce yourself.

Hi,
I am hobbyist.
I maintain some large C++ packages, however my knowledge about recent C++ is poor.
My current home work is to learn modern C++.

First of all, congratulations on the 50th release of pkgsrc! How do you feel about this anniversary?

I am very glad to commit some changes for this remarkable 50th release.
I feel 50 releases is very long history.
The pkgsrc should be improved for next 100th anniversary.

What are the main benefits of the pkgsrc system?

The pkgsrc helps building from source.
Building from source is interesting and I have learned many things from it. It is worth for experiencing.

I like up-to-date software.
And I believe many people like latest software.
Recently security concerns us.
Sharing the recipe for latest software is getting worth, I believe.

Where and how do you use pkgsrc?

My laptop and home NAS run NetBSD/amd64.
And of course I uses pkgsrc.
And some day-job FreeBSD/amd64 servers also use pkgsrc.

What are the pkgsrc projects you are currently working on?

I am user of Mozilla Firefox (pkgsrc/www/firefox) and LibreOffice (pkgsrc/misc/libreoffice).
I need latest ones. And I will keep them up-to-date.

If you analyze the current state of pkgsrc, which improvements and changes do you wish for the future?

I feel Fortran support is not so powerful. This should be improved.
And Chromium browser should be ported to NetBSD.
If I setup great machine, I will try to do it.

Do you have any practical tips to share with the pkgsrc users?

Good /etc/mk.conf or /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf improve your pkgsrc experience.
At least,
WRKOBJDIR=/usr/tmp/pkgsrc
and
MASTER_SITE_OVERRIDE=http://ftp.XX.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/distfiles/
should improve your pkgsrc experience.

What's the best way to start contributing to pkgsrc and what needs to be done?

Updating simple package is good start point. For example, Font package or simple C software.
I recommend to get commit bit for pkgsrc-wip.
Committing your idea to the repository is invaluable experience.

Do you plan to participate in the upcoming pkgsrcCon 2016 in Kraków (1-3 July)?

Sadly, I cannot do long distance travel...
If video streaming is provided, I will watch it carefully!

Thank you.
Please use and contribute the pkgsrc!


          pkgsrc 50th release interviews - Sevan Janiyan        

The pkgsrc team has prepared the 50th release of their package management system, with the 2016Q1 version. It's infrequent event, as the 100th release will be held after 50 quarters.

The NetBSD team has prepared series of interviews with the authors. The 2nd one is with Sevan Janiyan, a developer well known for his bulk builds for several platforms.

Hi Sevan, please introduce yourself.

Hello,

I'm Sevan Janiyan. A sysadmin from England and a NetBSD developer, working on the pkgsrc packaging system. My areas of focus are pkgsrc security and Darwin (PowerPC) but as I enjoy running many operating systems I manage builds on a variety of them across different CPU architectures. I was a user of pkgsrc for many years but only started working on pkgsrc itself early 2014 when I obtained a PowerBook from a friend and started fixing issues on OS X Tiger/PowerPC. I was invited to become a member of TNF in 2015.

First of all, congratulations on the 50th release of pkgsrc! How do you feel about this anniversary?

It's fantastic to see a tool that has evolved over time, it's extremely flexible and has grown support for numerous operating systems during this period. Not only can it serve as the native packaging system for most OS' but thanks to its multi platform support, it can be used to save a lot of effort in implementing a packaging system on a project when a set of packages need to be built and deployed in a consistent manner across multiple operating systems.

What are the main benefits of the pkgsrc system?

The ability the provide a single API for dealing with multiple environments & toolchains, for example translating a setting to the relevant flags to compliment the compiler in use.

Unprivileged mode allows a user to build the tools they require in a location which executables are permitted and the user has write access e.g your home directory when the partition it resides on is not mounted noexec ;-)

The buildlink framework - it provides the ability to detect components available on the host operating system & allows a user the choice whether to build against such a component or to opt for a version provided by pkgsrc itself.

Where and how do you use pkgsrc?

pkgsrc is an essential part of my sysadmin tool belt, on one hand I rely on it to obtain a set of packages on a system without touching the systems packaging system. This is for example on a customer system where I either have not been given root access or I do not wish to install a package on a system with a big dependency list for my personal use.

The packages in pkgsrc generally see very little in terms of local changes, besides tweaks to ensure package integrates into the system. This encourages interaction from developers with projects to upstream changes. This can be a benefit when debugging software issues where it is not certain if the issue exists in the version of software package from OS vendor or there is a bug in the software project upstream.

The ability to bootstrap multiple instances of the packaging system under different prefixes permits a user to install multiple and conflicting versions of software in isolated locations on a system.

As a use case, I worked on a project troubleshooting a clients varnish instance. The issues they were experiencing was specific to the version packaged for their OS by vendor. This was varnish 3.x and 4.1.0 had just been released, we decided to evaluate varnish 4.1.0 but as there were changes to the configuration language some development would need to by carried out, to adapt things to the new syntax. To reduce downtime the instance of varnish installed using the native package manager was left untouched and continued running, pkgsrc was bootstrapped in a separate location and varnish was installed from there. The development work to bring the config up to date happened with the new version of varnish from pkgsrc listening on a different port, but running alongside the original 3.x instance. Switching between the two instances was just a matter of changing ports to forward traffic to on the front-end web servers. Unfortunately 4.1.0 release had some bugs, so we considered trying 4.0.x. Another instance of pkgsrc was bootstrapped & v4.0.x was installed, again running on another port. This instance was brought up alongside the other two instance and started receiving traffic, at this point it was trivial to evaluate behaviour across 3 different versions of a piece of software running on a single host.

What are the pkgsrc projects you are currently working on?

I've worked very little in the tree recently. I continue to run the bulk builds of pkgsrc-current on a variety of systems and have recently begun making the packages generated from some of these builds for people to be able evaluate pkgsrc. At present there are packages for OS X Tiger (PowerPC), Debian Linux (amd64 & armv7), FreeBSD (amd64) and OmniOS published on https://files.venture37.com/pkgsrc/packages

Debian/armv7
http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-users/2016/03/22/msg023192.html

Debian/amd64
http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-users/2016/03/26/msg023209.html

FreeBSD/amd64
http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-users/2016/03/29/msg023222.html

If you analyze the current state of pkgsrc, which improvements and changes do you wish for the future?

A better mechanism for running the bulkbuilds or to grok how to setup the parallel builds.

Do you have any practical tips to share with the pkgsrc users?

As I mentioned with the varnish example, you can save a considerable amount of effort when required to run multiple instances of conflicting components by using pkgsrc. As everything isolated to a given prefix, specified during bootstrap, it's trivial to run multiple versions of Ruby for example without any conflict.

You can leverage this to experiment with changes which could be deemed volatile using other means.

What's the best way to start contributing to pkgsrc and what needs to be done?

Pick an OS from list, try to bootstrap pkgsrc on it, try to install some packages. If the process failed at any stage, file a bug report even better if the report includes a patch.

Rinse, repeat :-)

If you have resources to attempt larger builds, follow the steps to setup a bulk build environment and run a build. The results ideally should be published on a public webserver & the report posted to the pkgsrc-bulk list, developers and maintainers use these reports to see problems and it could serve as a starting point for a potential contributor as a list of things that need to be fixed.

Bulktracker also makes use of these reports to build a picture of the status of packages and their impact across multiple platforms.

Do you plan to participate in the upcoming pkgsrcCon 2016 in Kraków (1-3 July)?

Yes, see you there

          Top 3 Firewalls        
sumber:http://sectools.org/firewalls.html

1. Netfilter : The current Linux kernel packet filter/firewall
Netfilter is a powerful packet filter implemented in the standard Linux kernel. The userspace iptables tool is used for configuration. It now supports packet filtering (stateless or stateful), all kinds of network address and port translation (NAT/NAPT), and multiple API layers for 3rd party extensions. It includes many different modules for handling unruly protocols such as FTP. For other UNIX platforms, see Openbsd PF (OpenBSD specific), or IP Filter. Many personal firewalls are available for Windows (Tiny,Zone Alarm, Norton, Kerio, ...), though none made this list. Microsoft included a very basic firewall in Windows XP SP2, and will nag you incessantly until you install it.

2. Openbsd PF : The OpenBSD Packet Filter
Like Netfilter and IP Filter on other platforms, OpenBSD users love PF, their firewall tool. It handles network address translation, normalizing TCP/IP traffic, providing bandwidth control, and packet prioritization. It also offers some eccentric features, such as passive OS detection. Coming from the same guys who created OpenBSD, you can trust that it has been well audited and coded to avoid the sort of security holes we have seen in other packet filters.

3. IP Filter : Portable UNIX Packet Filter
IP Filter is a software package that can be used to provide network address translation (NAT) or firewall services. It can either be used as a loadable kernel module or incorporated into your UNIX kernel; use as a loadable kernel module where possible is highly recommended. Scripts are provided to install and patch system files, as required. IP Filter is distributed with FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Solaris. OpenBSD users should see Openbsd PF and Linux users Netfilter.
          Belajar Hack Yuck! (1) – Konsep Dasar Hacking        
Dalam suatu kesempatan, saya pernah melihat seorang auditor keamanan jaringan melalukan penetration test (pen-test) terhadap suatu sistem IT. Karena penasaran saya melihat sedikit2 cara penetration test yang dilakukan. Waktu itu saya belum banyak tahu tools apa aja yang digunakan, yang saya tau dia menggunakan tcpdump untuk menganalisis paket apa aja yang lewat, trus untuk men-scan beberapa host menggunakan Nessus. Ada salah satu aplikasi yang digunakan berbasis web yang terdapat kumpulan beberapa exploit. Waktu itu saya belum tahu aplikasi apa itu, yang saya ingat aplikasi itu menggunakan alamat http://127.0.0.1:55555, nah berbekal port 55555 saya mencari di google, dan ternyata itu adalah Metasploit Framework!.
Peristiwa itu menginspirasikan saya untuk mengenang masa-masa lalu ketika masih seneng2nya ngoprek dan belum ‘tercemar’ oleh DotA. Akhirnya sekarang saya ingin belajar ngoprek lagi, tp lebih fokus ke exploitnya saja. Tulisannya ini akan saya buat menjadi tiga bagian. Bagian pertama mengenai bagaimana salah satu cara umum yang dilakukan untuk menge-hack suatu system. Disini saya lebih menitikberatkan untuk hacking OS Windows XP, karena OS ini paling banyak dipakai orang. Bagian kedua lebih banyak ke teori mengenai exploit. Tapi karena mungkin akan sangat sulit dipahami (saya sendiri msh blm bisa membuat exploit sendiri), saya hanya menuliskan hasil terjemahan yang membahas apa itu dan cara kerja exploit. Sedangkan bagian terakhir merupakan praktek bagaimana mengelakukan penetration test menggunakan metasploit di Windows XP.


Bagian 1
*ini merupakan artikel lama mengenai salah satu cara umum yang dilakukan untuk hacking. (artikel ini jg di mirror oleh Negative a.k.a Jim Geovedi di sini). Langkah dibawah ini merupakan cara ‘standar’, hacking sebenarnya tidak harus selalu sesuai dengan ‘standar’ ini.

Hacking buat pemula
- by aCh
Artikel ini ditujukan bagi pemula, dan disusun oleh pemula. Ditulis untuk pengetahuan semata. Untuk temen2 yg udah ahli, sok aja dilewat, tapi dibaca juga gpp….
Apa sebenarnya hacking itu? klo menurut pengertian gue, hacking adalah ngoprek. Yup, hacking adalah ngoprek, mempelajari sesuatu dengan keingintahuan (curiosity) yg tinggi, ngutak atik sesuatu, ‘ngudek-ngudek’ sampai ke ‘jeroannya’. Sesuatunya apa dong? ya terserah… bisa komputer, mobil, motor, mesin. Tapi masalahnya ada ngga ya hacker mobil, hacker motor, atau hacker pesawat terbang?? hehe… Walaupun saat ini hacking identik dengan ‘bobol-membobol’, tapi gue kurang setuju klo cuman bobol server orang doang!. Ada yang bilang ‘Hacking is Art’, trus dimana letak seninya dong? Mau tau pengertian hacking sebenarnya, coba baca artikel sebelumnya (How to Become A Hacker). Di situ dijelasin bahwa hacker berkaitan dengan kemahiran teknis serta kegemaran menyelesaikan masalah dan mengatasi keterbatasan. Contoh hacker pada saat ini yang sering-sering disebut adalah Linus Torvald (tau ngga? itu lho yang menciptakan Linux). Apa dia tukang bobol? belum tentu kan….
Pada artikel ini, gue pengen membagi pengalaman mengenai Hacking, walaupun sampai saat ini gue belum pernah nge-Hack ke server orang. Salah satu cara untuk mencoba simulasi Hack yaitu H3cky0uRs3lf! Buat komputer kita sebagai server (sekaligus belajar konfigurasi server) trus install program yg dibutuhkan. Misalnya klo mo Web Hacking, coba install Apache atau IIS. Atau kita sesuaikan dengan exploit yang udah kita dapet. Tapi lebih baik install Linux atau FreeBSD dulu di komputer pribadi, trus konfigurasi sebagai server, lalu simulasi Hack, setelah itu baru Hack Betulan… Apalagi klo di kost ada jaringan.
Pro dan Kontra Hacking
Pro
Kontra
Etika Hacking
Semua informasi adalah free
Jika semua informasi adalah free, maka tidak ada ladi privacy
Aspek Security
Intrusion adalah ilustrasi kelemahan sistem
Tidak perlu menjadi pencuri untuk menunjukkan pintu yang tidak terkunci
Idle Machines
Hacking hanya pada idle machines
idle machines milik siapa ?
science education
hanya membobol tapi tidak merusak
“hacker wannabe” berpotensi sangat besar untuk merusak
Okeh, sekarang waktunya melakukan aksi…

1. Fase Persiapan
~ Mengumpulkan informasi sebanyak-banyaknya
– Secara Aktif : – portscanning
– network mapping
– OS Detection
– application fingerprinting
Semua itu bisa dilakukan menggunakan toolz tambahan seperti nmap atau netcat
– Secara Pasif : – mailing-list (jasakom, newbie_hacker, hackelink, dsb)
– via internet registries (informasi domain, IP Addres)
– Website yang menjadi terget

2. Fase Eksekusi
~ Setelah mendapatkan informasi, biasanya akan didapatkan informasi mengenai OS yg digunakan, serta port yang terbuka dengan daemon yg sedang berjalan. Selanjutnya mencari informasi mengenai vulnerability holes (celah kelemahan suatu program) dan dimanfaatkan menggunakan exploit (packetstromsecurity.org, milw0rm, milis bugtraq, atau mencari lewat #IRC).
~ Mengekspolitasi Vulnerability Holes
- compile eksploit -> local host ->
$gcc -o exploit exploit.c
$./exploit
# hostname (# tanda mendapatkan akses root)
remote host -> $gcc -o exploit exploit.c
$./exploit -t www.target.com
# (klo beruntung mendapatkan akes root)
~ Brute Force
– Secara berulang melakukan percobaan otentifikasi.
– Menebak username dan password.
– Cracking password file
~ Social Engineering
– Memperdayai user untuk memeberi tahu Username dan password
– Intinya ngibulin user….

3. Fase Setelah Eksekusi
~ Menginstall backdoor, trojans, dan rootkit
~ Menghapus jejak dengan memodifikasi file log agar tidak dicurigai admin
~ Menyalin /etc/passwd atau /etc/shadow/passwd
Nah, intinya seh cara masuk ke server seseorang seperti fase diatas. Mencari informasi, temukan exploit, dan tinggalkan backdoor. Cuma masalahnya hacking bukanlah segampang cara-cara diatas. Itu hanyalah teori, banyak hal yang harus diperhatikan jika ingin mempraketekkan hacking ke server seseorang. Jangan sekali-kali mencoba2 hacking ke server orang tanpa memperhatikan anonimitas (apalagi klo connectnya lewat komputer pribadi tanpa menggunakan proxy). Ntar klo ketahuan bisa repot. Saran gue, cobalah pada mesin localhost dulu (komuter pribadi), klo terhubung ke LAN lebih bagus. Sediakan server yang khusus buat dioprek. Kalaupun pun ga terhubung ke jaringan, kita masih bisa menggunakan Virtual Machine menggunakan VMWare seperti yang nanti akan dibahas pada bagian 3!

           CVE-2011-4862: Buffer overflow in libtelnet/encrypt.c        

Un miembro de la lista de CrackSLatinoS a.k.a Boken (@Boken_), ha planteado una manera diferente de colaborar, motivar, aprender y practicar temas relacionados con la ingeniería inversa.

Para ello, propone la resolución de una serie de exploits de diferentes niveles de dificultad, del cual éste writeUp se encarga de documentar el primero de ellos de nivel medio.

El post original publicado en la lista el 11/12/2014 fue:


http://www.cvedetails.com/cve/2011-4862
La idea principal es que todo el que quiera hacer su versión de este exploit y comprender en profundidad el fallo, vaya comentando aquí sus avances, dudas, problemas y demás. Hay tanto exploits como detalles del mismo, pero la cuestión es que cada uno que lo intente y se atasque venga aquí a explicar sus problemas y pueda continuar.
Ni es un concurso, ni hay fecha de entrega. El único objetivo es que todo el que crea que no sabría hacerlo, pero quiera, utilice este post para conseguirlo. A ver si al final de este hilo entre todo lo comentado se pueden montar uno o varios tutes conjuntos.
Boken


Los detalles de esta vulnerabilidad son:
Buffer overflow in libtelnet/encrypt.c in telnetd in FreeBSD 7.3 through 9.0, MIT Kerberos Version 5 Applications (aka krb5-appl) 1.0.2 and earlier, Heimdal 1.5.1 and earlier, GNU inetutils, and possibly other products allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long encryption key, as exploited in the wild in December 2011.
Como no podía ser de otra manera, soez y yo nos pusimos a resolverlo con un resultado altamente satisfactorio para nosotros. Este tipo de retos siempre nos dejan muy buen sabor de boca. 

Ni que decir tiene que tan solo mostramos una pequeña prueba de concepto y que dista mucho de la POC original que en su día hicieron NighterMan y BatchDrake. Sin duda la de ellos es infinitamente más elaborada.

Espero que disfrutéis de esta lectura, tanto como nosotros redactándola. Aquí os dejamos todo lo necesario:
¡Hasta el próximo exploit!



          Here's one for your noggin:        
I played around with coding in GNOME and KDE and decided that I liked coding in KDE more. On my Linux desktop I use GNOME. When I load FreeBSD, for some reason, I go to KDE. However, since I became an independant contractor I've settled on MacOSX. Ahhh... It isn't the internet without the religious wars.
          Gnome should consider BSD        
Gnome is Linux centric, that's why we see KDE takeover in FreeBSD, PCBSD, DesktopBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Dragon ..etc. Gnome should be OS independent.

          Comment by Drumhellar        
Protection of trademarks is important even for companies that aren't trying to profit from OSS. Mozilla reserves the rights associated with the Firefox brand, so Debian brands their browser Iceweasel so they can extend trademark rights to their users. Even FreeBSD once had to shutdown a distributor who was pressing and selling his own FreeBSD disks. They rightly felt that since they didn't have any control in the process, and thus couldn't guarantee that they weren't defective or worse, the distributor shouldn't be use their branding. FreeBSD has a solid reputation, but the FreeBSD Foundation is a small organization, and damaging that reputation could harm them for years.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

The buyout, which was finalized on Thursday, included the RocketColo.net network, servers, and all other company assets. RocketColo.net is currently located in the same datacenter as Vortech Inc, so the transition is expected to be extremely smooth.

"We are hoping that by purchasing the assets of RocketColo, we will be able to grow our network and increase our customer base," said Vortech Inc owner Brad Pugh.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Pugh says payment was made up front for the company, and he plans to immediately make beneficial changes for the company's customers.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

BRISTOL, UK (9/13/2005) -- Acorn Rack (http://www.acornrack.com), a new provider of on-demand automatic website creation solutions, announced today that it has officially launched a public version of its highly anticipated website creation service, a move that will change the current landscape of the web hosting and development industry.

The new service, which is completely free to users at the basic level, gives users the option to instantly and securely create websites, as well as share and exchange design and development tips with fellow web designers and entrepreneurs.

"We are based in the United Kingdom, but our vast developer community includes users from all corners of the globe," said Olly Culverhouse, server administrator for Acorn Rack. Also contributing to the project was lead developer Chris Hill.

As of September, the site has gained over 2,000 members, mostly from participation in the public testing period.

"Users can create up to 50 websites on our system," said Culverhouse. "It's all done with zero knowledge of HTML or scripting languages."

The public beta test lasted nearly 2 months, and included the implementation of user suggested features and the removal of software bugs.

The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

Coolutils have already endowed customers with many handy supplements to the Windows core functionality. Their sphere of application ranges form graphics and multimedia to data processing and management.

The converter supports multi-string characters and can be effectively used for documents with Asian layout and encoding. The speed and accuracy of conversion provided by Total PDF Converter deserve special attention. Conversion of rich content files, even of a considerable size, becomes a matter of a few seconds. High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

With its help you can extract data form its embellished vessel and put it into a more practical one, which fits your editing tasks.

Total PDF Converter features a wide range of conversion options.

The converter supports multi-string characters and can be effectively used for documents with Asian layout and encoding.

High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

Their sphere of application ranges form graphics and multimedia to data processing and management.

Known for its capacity to facilitate the exchange of rich content documents, PDF has become a standard carrier of important business, scientific and other information.

The converter supports multi-string characters and can be effectively used for documents with Asian layout and encoding.

High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.
Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine.

Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

August 30, 2005 - Softplicity has enlarged its family of Windows utilities, known under the Coolutils brand, with a new member, Total PDF Converter. The newcomer's line of duty can be guessed from its name. Yet again a number of interesting features distinguish the program's functionality and make it a valuable addition to the Softplicity's Coolutils collection.

Coolutils have already endowed customers with many handy supplements to the Windows core functionality. Their sphere of application ranges form graphics and multimedia to data processing and management. Particular attention has been paid to PDF documents, which is quite natural, given their widespread use in the net. Known for its capacity to facilitate the exchange of rich content documents, PDF has become a standard carrier of important business, scientific and other information. And although PDF firmly entrenched itself as an information vessel, handling PDF docs is not always an easy thing. And not a cheap one either, when it comes to fully-functional Adobe products. To override these two major flaws, you can convert PDF to a format friendlier to editing. Total PDF Converter can make information in the web more available and easy to deal with. With its help you can extract data form its embellished vessel and put it into a more practical one, which fits your editing tasks.

Total PDF Converter features a wide range of conversion options. Along with Word Doc, Excel, HTML, Text and CSV files, it offers a number of graphic formats supported by Sony PSP and appliances for visual presentation. The converter supports multi-string characters and can be effectively used for documents with Asian layout and encoding. The speed and accuracy of conversion provided by Total PDF Converter deserve special attention. Conversion of rich content files, even of a considerable size, becomes a matter of a few seconds. High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction can be purchased directly from Kalorama Information by clicking http://www.kaloramainformation.com/pub/1099235.html. It is also available at MarketResearch.com.

The buyout, which was finalized on Thursday, included the RocketColo.net network, servers, and all other company assets. RocketColo.net is currently located in the same datacenter as Vortech Inc, so the transition is expected to be extremely smooth.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

August 30, 2005 - Softplicity has enlarged its family of Windows utilities, known under the Coolutils brand, with a new member, Total PDF Converter. The newcomer's line of duty can be guessed from its name. Yet again a number of interesting features distinguish the program's functionality and make it a valuable addition to the Softplicity's Coolutils collection.

Coolutils have already endowed customers with many handy supplements to the Windows core functionality. Their sphere of application ranges form graphics and multimedia to data processing and management. Particular attention has been paid to PDF documents, which is quite natural, given their widespread use in the net. Known for its capacity to facilitate the exchange of rich content documents, PDF has become a standard carrier of important business, scientific and other information. And although PDF firmly entrenched itself as an information vessel, handling PDF docs is not always an easy thing. And not a cheap one either, when it comes to fully-functional Adobe products. To override these two major flaws, you can convert PDF to a format friendlier to editing. Total PDF Converter can make information in the web more available and easy to deal with. With its help you can extract data form its embellished vessel and put it into a more practical one, which fits your editing tasks.

Total PDF Converter features a wide range of conversion options. Along with Word Doc, Excel, HTML, Text and CSV files, it offers a number of graphic formats supported by Sony PSP and appliances for visual presentation. The converter supports multi-string characters and can be effectively used for documents with Asian layout and encoding. The speed and accuracy of conversion provided by Total PDF Converter deserve special attention. Conversion of rich content files, even of a considerable size, becomes a matter of a few seconds. High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Features at a Glance

Support for Word Doc, Excel, HTML, Text and CSV conversion.

Support for BMP, JPEG, WNF, EMF, PNG, GIF, TIFF, EPS formats.

Batch and command line modes.

Multi-bit language support.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

The newcomer's line of duty can be guessed from its name. Yet again a number of interesting features distinguish the program's functionality and make it a valuable addition to the Softplicity's Coolutils collection.

Coolutils have already endowed customers with many handy supplements to the Windows core functionality. Their sphere of application ranges form graphics and multimedia to data processing and management. Particular attention has been paid to PDF documents, which is quite natural, given their widespread use in the net. Known for its capacity to facilitate the exchange of rich content documents, PDF has become a standard carrier of important business, scientific and other information. And although PDF firmly entrenched itself as an information vessel, handling PDF docs is not always an easy thing. And not a cheap one either, when it comes to fully-functional Adobe products. To override these two major flaws, you can convert PDF to a format friendlier to editing. Total PDF Converter can make information in the web more available and easy to deal with. With its help you can extract data form its embellished vessel and put it into a more practical one, which fits your editing tasks.

Total PDF Converter features a wide range of conversion options. Along with Word Doc, Excel, HTML, Text and CSV files, it offers a number of graphic formats supported by Sony PSP and appliances for visual presentation. The converter supports multi-string characters and can be effectively used for documents with Asian layout and encoding. The speed and accuracy of conversion provided by Total PDF Converter deserve special attention. Conversion of rich content files, even of a considerable size, becomes a matter of a few seconds. High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Features at a Glance

Support for Word Doc, Excel, HTML, Text and CSV conversion.

Support for BMP, JPEG, WNF, EMF, PNG, GIF, TIFF, EPS formats.

Batch and command line modes.

Multi-bit language support.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

CHICAGO, IL (9/26/2005) -- Windy City Web Solutions (http://www.windycitywebsolutions.com), a Chicago, IL based telecommunications provider, announced this week that it is currently offering its clients a unique set of tools and features, and plans to charge for them in the future.

The tools, which the company purchased rights to distribute, include a data backup tool that allows for scheduled backups of single accounts, or in the case of resellers, backups of large numbers of hosting accounts at once.

"Our current customers just can't say enough good things – they're fully automated and work great for resellers and individual hosting clients," said Kenneth Fox, CEO and co-founder of the company.

Other free tools include a MySQL backup tool, a site copy tool that allows individual clients and resellers to easily transfer their sites between servers, and a downloadable site uptime tool.

"I think it's clear that we are confident in our service when we offer our clients free uptime monitoring software," said Fox. "Most hosts just don't do this."

Fox's company, which has been around since mid-2004, hopes to continue to offer similar tools and services to its customers in the coming months.

"What we are offering our customers today is just the beginning," said Fox. "We fully intend to raise the bar in the hosting industry."

BRISTOL, UK (9/13/2005) -- Acorn Rack (http://www.acornrack.com), a new provider of on-demand automatic website creation solutions, announced today that it has officially launched a public version of its highly anticipated website creation service, a move that will change the current landscape of the web hosting and development industry.

The new service, which is completely free to users at the basic level, gives users the option to instantly and securely create websites, as well as share and exchange design and development tips with fellow web designers and entrepreneurs.

"We are based in the United Kingdom, but our vast developer community includes users from all corners of the globe," said Olly Culverhouse, server administrator for Acorn Rack. Also contributing to the project was lead developer Chris Hill.

As of September, the site has gained over 2,000 members, mostly from participation in the public testing period.

"Our site has been fortunate to have unprecedented growth in our development period," said Culverhouse.

According to Acorn Rack's developers, there is a huge gap in the market for ready-made high powered websites that can be used as a stepping stone to more advanced projects for individuals new to the internet.

"Users can create up to 50 websites on our system," said Culverhouse. "It's all done with zero knowledge of HTML or scripting languages."

The public beta test lasted nearly 2 months, and included the implementation of user suggested features and the removal of software bugs.

Acorn Rack does not expect to charge for its service in the near future, and currently gives free website hosting to all of its users. No private information of its users is sold or distributed to 3rd parties, according to Culverhouse.

ORLANDO, FL (9/6/05) - Vortech Incorporated (http://www.vortechhosting.com), a web hosting provider currently hosting over 120,000 domain names, announced today that it has acquired Florida based RocketColo.net (http://www.rocketcolo.net), a co-location and dedicated server provider.

The buyout, which was finalized on Thursday, included the RocketColo.net network, servers, and all other company assets. RocketColo.net is currently located in the same datacenter as Vortech Inc, so the transition is expected to be extremely smooth.

"We are hoping that by purchasing the assets of RocketColo, we will be able to grow our network and increase our customer base," said Vortech Inc owner Brad Pugh.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Pugh says payment was made up front for the company, and he plans to immediately make beneficial changes for the company's customers.

"All clients of RocketColo will enjoy additional connectivity at no additional charge, as we are including them in our network," said Pugh. Connectivity to Progress Telcom, AT&T, Level(3), Sprint, and Cogent has been added.

In addition, customers of RocketColo.net will be offered an upgrade to 1000 GB of monthly bandwidth at no additional charge. No downtime is expected during the transition.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

Their sphere of application ranges form graphics and multimedia to data processing and management.

The converter supports multi-string characters and can be effectively used for documents with Asian layout and encoding.

High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction can be purchased directly from Kalorama Information by clicking http://www.kaloramainformation.com/pub/1099235.html. It is also available at MarketResearch.com.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

ACTUAL WINDOW MANAGER
TO HELP STOCK TRADERS IMPROVE BUSINESS EFFICIENCY

Actual Tools today announced the launch of Actual Window Manager for Traders program which is designed to provide stock traders with adequate software tools for simple and convenient working with multiple trading programs on the Windows-based platforms. The company is planning to provide corporate stock trading communities with a 30-day evaluation version, and flexible pricing options for the purchase of Actual Window Manager, as well as, free technical support and upgrades.

Actual Window Manager is the top selling desktop enhancement suite that features over 40 new utilitarian functions for fast and convenient multitasking in several applications. Traders will be able to put any selected windows on top, roll them up like blinds, minimize applications to any suitable place on the desktop, set window size and position, etc. As the program is resident and active transparently throughout the Operating System, new functions are available in any application or system window and can be triggered via Windows-style title bar buttons.

Stock traders are most likely to benefit from the Stay-on-Top function which enables them to place various charts, chat room windows, time and sales windows on top of other trading applications so that their content remains always visible. With the Roll-Up/Unroll function, applications, which are floating on top, can be minimized to their title bars. This option allows traders to free the desktop space and glance at background windows while saving the taskbar from window clutter. Also, traders can minimize inactive applications to the system tray or any other suitable desktop place.

Actual Window Manager is already helping stock traders at Gapping Stocks R Us improve their efficiency. David Kuvelas, president of the company, says: "I am a stock trader and I work with INET and ARCA plus various java charts, time and sales windows, scanning software, chat rooms that sit on top of other windows, mostly L2 trading software. So, it becomes a huge pain to have to bring those windows up every time you make a trade. Literally, you can be bringing up 5-10 windows 100-200 times during the trading day. Recently we turned to Actual Window Manager. With its Stay-on-Top and Roll-Up functions, it has become a true lifesaver for us."

Windows is multifunctional and sometimes we work with several different applications. While typing something in MS Word, you need for example, to follow information in internet browser. Push Win-T (on/off transparent effect) and one window will become transparent and you will solve your task easily. Besides, usage of transparent windows reduces negative effect on your eyes! Our user Kevin Wisner wrote us: "I'm a stock daytrader with four monitors, and many applications running. I currently use 70% transparency with ghosting to overlay one stock chart over another stock chart. This allows me access to the "lower" stock chart while still viewing the transparent ghosted stock chart.".

The enhancement of the standard window navigating system will help traders organize their computer working environment and eliminate such common problems as window clutter in the taskbar, nonflexible window behavior and unexpected data loss. Besides, traders will no longer have to make thousands of distracting clicks, bringing up each application window 200 times a day. Less confusion will obviously lead to less tension, stress and fatigue.

Actual Window Manager is designed for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/Me/XP/2003 and priced at $39.95 (USD) for individual traders. Corporate customers are encouraged to take advantage of our special volume sales discounts. For more information, visit our website at: http://www.ActualTools.com/windowmanager/for_traders/ .

Founded in 2001, Actual Tools is the leading innovator in desktop enhancement technology, focused on producing powerful system enhancement applications for the Windows platforms.

BRISTOL, UK (9/13/2005) -- Acorn Rack (http://www.acornrack.com), a new provider of on-demand automatic website creation solutions, announced today that it has officially launched a public version of its highly anticipated website creation service, a move that will change the current landscape of the web hosting and development industry.

The new service, which is completely free to users at the basic level, gives users the option to instantly and securely create websites, as well as share and exchange design and development tips with fellow web designers and entrepreneurs.

"We are based in the United Kingdom, but our vast developer community includes users from all corners of the globe," said Olly Culverhouse, server administrator for Acorn Rack. Also contributing to the project was lead developer Chris Hill.

As of September, the site has gained over 2,000 members, mostly from participation in the public testing period.

"Our site has been fortunate to have unprecedented growth in our development period," said Culverhouse.

According to Acorn Rack's developers, there is a huge gap in the market for ready-made high powered websites that can be used as a stepping stone to more advanced projects for individuals new to the internet.

"Users can create up to 50 websites on our system," said Culverhouse. "It's all done with zero knowledge of HTML or scripting languages."

The public beta test lasted nearly 2 months, and included the implementation of user suggested features and the removal of software bugs.

Acorn Rack does not expect to charge for its service in the near future, and currently gives free website hosting to all of its users. No private information of its users is sold or distributed to 3rd parties, according to Culverhouse.

ORLANDO, FL (9/6/05) - Vortech Incorporated (http://www.vortechhosting.com), a web hosting provider currently hosting over 120,000 domain names, announced today that it has acquired Florida based RocketColo.net (http://www.rocketcolo.net), a co-location and dedicated server provider.

The buyout, which was finalized on Thursday, included the RocketColo.net network, servers, and all other company assets. RocketColo.net is currently located in the same datacenter as Vortech Inc, so the transition is expected to be extremely smooth.

"We are hoping that by purchasing the assets of RocketColo, we will be able to grow our network and increase our customer base," said Vortech Inc owner Brad Pugh.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Pugh says payment was made up front for the company, and he plans to immediately make beneficial changes for the company's customers.

"All clients of RocketColo will enjoy additional connectivity at no additional charge, as we are including them in our network," said Pugh. Connectivity to Progress Telcom, AT&T, Level(3), Sprint, and Cogent has been added.

In addition, customers of RocketColo.net will be offered an upgrade to 1000 GB of monthly bandwidth at no additional charge. No downtime is expected during the transition.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

ACTUAL WINDOW MANAGER

TO HELP STOCK TRADERS IMPROVE BUSINESS EFFICIENCY

Actual Tools today announced the launch of Actual Window Manager for Traders program which is designed to provide stock traders with adequate software tools for simple and convenient working with multiple trading programs on the Windows-based platforms. The company is planning to provide corporate stock trading communities with a 30-day evaluation version, and flexible pricing options for the purchase of Actual Window Manager, as well as, free technical support and upgrades.

Actual Window Manager is the top selling desktop enhancement suite that features over 40 new utilitarian functions for fast and convenient multitasking in several applications. Traders will be able to put any selected windows on top, roll them up like blinds, minimize applications to any suitable place on the desktop, set window size and position, etc. As the program is resident and active transparently throughout the Operating System, new functions are available in any application or system window and can be triggered via Windows-style title bar buttons.

Stock traders are most likely to benefit from the Stay-on-Top function which enables them to place various charts, chat room windows, time and sales windows on top of other trading applications so that their content remains always visible. With the Roll-Up/Unroll function, applications, which are floating on top, can be minimized to their title bars. This option allows traders to free the desktop space and glance at background windows while saving the taskbar from window clutter. Also, traders can minimize inactive applications to the system tray or any other suitable desktop place.

Actual Window Manager is already helping stock traders at Gapping Stocks R Us improve their efficiency. David Kuvelas, president of the company, says: "I am a stock trader and I work with INET and ARCA plus various java charts, time and sales windows, scanning software, chat rooms that sit on top of other windows, mostly L2 trading software. So, it becomes a huge pain to have to bring those windows up every time you make a trade. Literally, you can be bringing up 5-10 windows 100-200 times during the trading day. Recently we turned to Actual Window Manager. With its Stay-on-Top and Roll-Up functions, it has become a true lifesaver for us."

Windows is multifunctional and sometimes we work with several different applications. While typing something in MS Word, you need for example, to follow information in internet browser. Push Win-T (on/off transparent effect) and one window will become transparent and you will solve your task easily. Besides, usage of transparent windows reduces negative effect on your eyes! Our user Kevin Wisner wrote us: "I'm a stock daytrader with four monitors, and many applications running. I currently use 70% transparency with ghosting to overlay one stock chart over another stock chart. This allows me access to the "lower" stock chart while still viewing the transparent ghosted stock chart.".

The enhancement of the standard window navigating system will help traders organize their computer working environment and eliminate such common problems as window clutter in the taskbar, nonflexible window behavior and unexpected data loss. Besides, traders will no longer have to make thousands of distracting clicks, bringing up each application window 200 times a day. Less confusion will obviously lead to less tension, stress and fatigue.

Actual Window Manager is designed for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/Me/XP/2003 and priced at $39.95 (USD) for individual traders. Corporate customers are encouraged to take advantage of our special volume sales discounts. For more information, visit our website at: http://www.ActualTools.com/windowmanager/for_traders/ .

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine.

Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

ACTUAL WINDOW MANAGER

TO HELP STOCK TRADERS IMPROVE BUSINESS EFFICIENCY

Actual Tools today announced the launch of Actual Window Manager for Traders program which is designed to provide stock traders with adequate software tools for simple and convenient working with multiple trading programs on the Windows-based platforms. The company is planning to provide corporate stock trading communities with a 30-day evaluation version, and flexible pricing options for the purchase of Actual Window Manager, as well as, free technical support and upgrades.

Actual Window Manager is the top selling desktop enhancement suite that features over 40 new utilitarian functions for fast and convenient multitasking in several applications. Traders will be able to put any selected windows on top, roll them up like blinds, minimize applications to any suitable place on the desktop, set window size and position, etc. As the program is resident and active transparently throughout the Operating System, new functions are available in any application or system window and can be triggered via Windows-style title bar buttons.

Stock traders are most likely to benefit from the Stay-on-Top function which enables them to place various charts, chat room windows, time and sales windows on top of other trading applications so that their content remains always visible. With the Roll-Up/Unroll function, applications, which are floating on top, can be minimized to their title bars. This option allows traders to free the desktop space and glance at background windows while saving the taskbar from window clutter. Also, traders can minimize inactive applications to the system tray or any other suitable desktop place.

Actual Window Manager is already helping stock traders at Gapping Stocks R Us improve their efficiency. David Kuvelas, president of the company, says: "I am a stock trader and I work with INET and ARCA plus various java charts, time and sales windows, scanning software, chat rooms that sit on top of other windows, mostly L2 trading software. So, it becomes a huge pain to have to bring those windows up every time you make a trade. Literally, you can be bringing up 5-10 windows 100-200 times during the trading day. Recently we turned to Actual Window Manager. With its Stay-on-Top and Roll-Up functions, it has become a true lifesaver for us."

Windows is multifunctional and sometimes we work with several different applications. While typing something in MS Word, you need for example, to follow information in internet browser. Push Win-T (on/off transparent effect) and one window will become transparent and you will solve your task easily. Besides, usage of transparent windows reduces negative effect on your eyes! Our user Kevin Wisner wrote us: "I'm a stock daytrader with four monitors, and many applications running. I currently use 70% transparency with ghosting to overlay one stock chart over another stock chart. This allows me access to the "lower" stock chart while still viewing the transparent ghosted stock chart.".

The enhancement of the standard window navigating system will help traders organize their computer working environment and eliminate such common problems as window clutter in the taskbar, nonflexible window behavior and unexpected data loss. Besides, traders will no longer have to make thousands of distracting clicks, bringing up each application window 200 times a day. Less confusion will obviously lead to less tension, stress and fatigue.

Actual Window Manager is designed for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/Me/XP/2003 and priced at $39.95 (USD) for individual traders. Corporate customers are encouraged to take advantage of our special volume sales discounts. For more information, visit our website at: http://www.ActualTools.com/windowmanager/for_traders/ .

Founded in 2001, Actual Tools is the leading innovator in desktop enhancement technology, focused on producing powerful system enhancement applications for the Windows platforms.

BRISTOL, UK (9/13/2005) -- Acorn Rack (http://www.acornrack.com), a new provider of on-demand automatic website creation solutions, announced today that it has officially launched a public version of its highly anticipated website creation service, a move that will change the current landscape of the web hosting and development industry.

The new service, which is completely free to users at the basic level, gives users the option to instantly and securely create websites, as well as share and exchange design and development tips with fellow web designers and entrepreneurs.

"We are based in the United Kingdom, but our vast developer community includes users from all corners of the globe," said Olly Culverhouse, server administrator for Acorn Rack. Also contributing to the project was lead developer Chris Hill.

As of September, the site has gained over 2,000 members, mostly from participation in the public testing period.

"Our site has been fortunate to have unprecedented growth in our development period," said Culverhouse.

According to Acorn Rack's developers, there is a huge gap in the market for ready-made high powered websites that can be used as a stepping stone to more advanced projects for individuals new to the internet.

The public beta test lasted nearly 2 months, and included the implementation of user suggested features and the removal of software bugs.

ORLANDO, FL (9/6/05) - Vortech Incorporated (http://www.vortechhosting.com), a web hosting provider currently hosting over 120,000 domain names, announced today that it has acquired Florida based RocketColo.net (http://www.rocketcolo.net), a co-location and dedicated server provider.

The buyout, which was finalized on Thursday, included the RocketColo.net network, servers, and all other company assets. RocketColo.net is currently located in the same datacenter as Vortech Inc, so the transition is expected to be extremely smooth.

"We are hoping that by purchasing the assets of RocketColo, we will be able to grow our network and increase our customer base," said Vortech Inc owner Brad Pugh.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Pugh says payment was made up front for the company, and he plans to immediately make beneficial changes for the company's customers.

"All clients of RocketColo will enjoy additional connectivity at no additional charge, as we are including them in our network," said Pugh. Connectivity to Progress Telcom, AT&T, Level(3), Sprint, and Cogent has been added.

In addition, customers of RocketColo.net will be offered an upgrade to 1000 GB of monthly bandwidth at no additional charge. No downtime is expected during the transition.

MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE (9/1/2005) - 1PlanHost.com (http://www.1planhost.com), a leading provider of Windows web hosting services announced today that it has waived all hosting fees for its customers affected by the Hurricane Katrina Disaster, and is donating 10% of all new account sales and existing renewals during the month of September to the relief effort.

"It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their web site hosting accounts expiring," said Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers Internet Services, 1PlanHost.com's parent company. "They are struggling to feed themselves and their families -- we're not going to add additional stress."

Many customers who are located in the affected areas are currently without electricity, food, clean water, and access to telephone service. Some individuals have lost their homes and their jobs.

In addition to waving the hosting fees of affected customers, the company will donate 10% of revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005.

"We will evaluate the response and need at the end of September to determine if this donation program should be extended," said Williams.

According to the American Red Cross, the need for national support will be required for many coming months. Insurance claims have been estimated to exceed US$26Bil, and officials insist the rebuilding of infrastructure and housing will take years.

"We will also be involved in facilitating teams of people in our local area to volunteer and provide hands on assistance through Christian disaster relief ministries," said Williams.

1PlanHost.com is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to follow in its footsteps and waive hosting costs for customers hit by the storm.

"The industry's most reputable hosting companies truly are customer centric and are willing to help out when a severe need arises," said Williams.

SOMERSET, NJ (9/1/2005) - Uplinkearth (http://www.uplinkearth.com), a global award-winning Windows web hosting provider hosting over 30 thousand domain names, announced today that it has made the first pledge to the Web Hosts Unite program (http://www.webhostsunite.com), an industry group supporting the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm, which battered parts of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi, provoked the largest ever peacetime evacuation, of over 400,000 thousand people. Katrina made landfall as a massive Category 4 hurricane, and caused an estimated 26 billion dollars in damage. Several levees designed to protect New Orleans have failed, and much of the city is completely under water.

"Hundreds of thousands have lost their homes, their belongings, and some even lost their life in the aftermath of this storm. The time has come for the world to unite and support the victims," said Mike Yablonowitz, uplinkearth President and CEO. "Those who are in a position to help are obligated to do so, which is why we have decided to give our full support of the relief efforts."

Uplinkearth has made an initial pledge of financial resources, and is donating free hosting services to the program's website. All funds are donated directly to the American Red Cross, who is actively participating in relief efforts for victims. The company has also created a website to serve as a portal for its customers who wish to donate.

The Red Cross currently has 239 evacuation shelters operating in states affected by the disaster, housing roughly 37,000 people.

"It's very important to empathize with people affected by this. Their lives will never be the same," said Yablonowitz.

High-resolution images retain no less than 98% quality of original files. Comfortable work panel allows choosing a format and launching conversion with the same button click. Flexibility of the tool satisfies most PDF conversion needs, including command line and batch conversion.

Many users have already found Total PDF Converter a useful addition to their collection of Coolutils tools. "New Total PDF Converter has become great help in my everyday routine. I use lots of PDF docs in my research work. Now I convert them into text files and add my comments. It's become much easier to reuse some bits of PDF. Well done, guys!" says Tim Walker, customer from Canada. "My husband and I work in the same field and often discuss things we dig out in the net. Now we make home presentations and get a lot of fun out of it. It's amazing how many new ways can be found for ordinary PDFs" says The Armits, New Zealand.

Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The annual Flooring B2B conference was held on August 16th and 17th at the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The conference was well attended by the major mills, distributors and software companies. The number of first time attendees included Gulistan Carpet, Adleta, All Tile, Tri –West, JJ Haines and Royalty Carpets.

RFMS, the leading provider of business management software and B2B capability to the floor covering industry, announced that nearly 15% of its client base – 225 dealers – are using the RFMS B2B software solution to streamline their business operations. Terry Wheat, President of RFMS, stated that "dealer response to B2B has exceeded expectations and the adoption rate will continue to grow rapidly into 2006 as more distributors begin offering electronic capability to dealers". Working in concert with the industry's major suppliers, RFMS has been instrumental in helping nearly 100 of the B2B enabled dealers send POs electronically on a daily basis. It is estimated that the $10 million of electronic POs currently being transacted monthly will double in the next six months.

B2B E-Commerce is a proven business technology that incorporates internet communication capabilities to automate routine business transactions between dealers and their suppliers including tasks such as maintaining product/price catalogs, processing invoices and transmitting purchase orders. Significant administrative savings are realized due to the elimination of manual data entry of new products and price changes, faxing of purchase orders and data entry of invoices - allowing dealers of all sizes to slash administrative transaction costs, increase accuracy and boost customer service.

Because all suppliers and software companies use a common set of standards to communicate and transmit data (see www.FlooringB2BStandard.com), the B2B process for a dealer is the same whether connecting to a mill, distributor or supplier. All the dealer needs to get started is business software that is B2B compliant, a high-speed Internet connection, initial training and access to a help desk when additional training or support is needed.

New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2005 -- The worldwide market for implant-based dental reconstruction products will approach nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a new study released today from Kalorama Information. Although the dental implant sector accounts for only about 9% of the global dental market, it is the fastest growing segment with a forecast growth rate of almost 15%.

The new study, Implant-Based Dental Reconstruction: The Worldwide Implant and Bone Graft Market, estimates that growth in implant devices and abutments and dental bone grafts will outstrip other areas of dental devices and products. The aging of the developed world's population will, despite improved dental health, actually create a larger potential market and provide an excellent opportunity for suppliers and innovators.

"With oral health improving and people living longer, the number of teeth to be maintained is increasing at a rate faster than the population is growing," notes Anne Anscomb, the author of the final report. "It was once thought that the decline in dental caries, particularly in children, would result in reducing the treatment needs of the population. Instead the opposite is true: Increasing retention of teeth has created new needs and greater demand. As adults retain more teeth, they experience a greater severity of periodontal involvement, which is the leading cause of tooth loss."

This study provides a comprehensive analysis of available dental implant and bone graft products, including etiology and epidemiological data for tooth loss. Market size, growth, and competitive market share are provided for each segment, and revenue distribution by world geographical region is estimated. In addition, the report thoroughly reviews clinical, demographic, and regulatory trends and profiles 15 key competitors.

ACTUAL WINDOW MANAGER

TO HELP STOCK TRADERS IMPROVE BUSINESS EFFICIENCY

Actual Tools today announced the launch of Actual Window Manager for Traders program which is designed to provide stock traders with adequate software tools for simple and convenient working with multiple trading programs on the Windows-based platforms. The company is planning to provide corporate stock trading communities with a 30-day evaluation version, and flexible pricing options for the purchase of Actual Window Manager, as well as, free technical support and upgrades.

Actual Window Manager is the top selling desktop enhancement suite that features over 40 new utilitarian functions for fast and convenient multitasking in several applications. Traders will be able to put any selected windows on top, roll them up like blinds, minimize applications to any suitable place on the desktop, set window size and position, etc. As the program is resident and active transparently throughout the Operating System, new functions are available in any application or system window and can be triggered via Windows-style title bar buttons.

Stock traders are most likely to benefit from the Stay-on-Top function which enables them to place various charts, chat room windows, time and sales windows on top of other trading applications so that their content remains always visible. With the Roll-Up/Unroll function, applications, which are floating on top, can be minimized to their title bars. This option allows traders to free the desktop space and glance at background windows while saving the taskbar from window clutter. Also, traders can minimize inactive applications to the system tray or any other suitable desktop place.

Actual Window Manager is already helping stock traders at Gapping Stocks R Us improve their efficiency. David Kuvelas, president of the company, says: "I am a stock trader and I work with INET and ARCA plus various java charts, time and sales windows, scanning software, chat rooms that sit on top of other windows, mostly L2 trading software. So, it becomes a huge pain to have to bring those windows up every time you make a trade. Literally, you can be bringing up 5-10 windows 100-200 times during the trading day. Recently we turned to Actual Window Manager. With its Stay-on-Top and Roll-Up functions, it has become a true lifesaver for us."

Windows is multifunctional and sometimes we work with several different applications. While typing something in MS Word, you need for example, to follow information in internet browser. Push Win-T (on/off transparent effect) and one window will become transparent and you will solve your task easily. Besides, usage of transparent windows reduces negative effect on your eyes! Our user Kevin Wisner wrote us: "I'm a stock daytrader with four monitors, and many applications running. I currently use 70% transparency with ghosting to overlay one stock chart over another stock chart. This allows me access to the "lower" stock chart while still viewing the transparent ghosted stock chart.".

The enhancement of the standard window navigating system will help traders organize their computer working environment and eliminate such common problems as window clutter in the taskbar, nonflexible window behavior and unexpected data loss. Besides, traders will no longer have to make thousands of distracting clicks, bringing up each application window 200 times a day. Less confusion will obviously lead to less tension, stress and fatigue.

Actual Window Manager is designed for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/Me/XP/2003 and priced at $39.95 (USD) for individual traders. Corporate customers are encouraged to take advantage of our special volume sales discounts. For more information, visit our website at: http://www.ActualTools.com/windowmanager/for_traders/ .

          Great news        
ZFS is one of the most interesting things to come out of Sun recently and is a much needed tune up to the Solaris filesystem. Journaling UFS, although not bad, is not my first choice as when the power goes down, you might still end up losing data or making the system unstable. Also, considering ZFS's scalability, I think they are on too a winner here. I'm glad FreeBSD has been able to incorporate dtrace as well. It seems to be making a great OS even better. Kinda got me thinking about using it for a home server.
          RE: Great news        
"ZFS is one of the most interesting things to come out of Sun recently and is a much needed tune up to the Solaris filesystem." I like the idea of soon having the great things from Solaris to be used in BSD as well. FreeBSD will surely become a concentrate of the best aspects of itself and other OSes (Solaris, OpenBSD etc.). I can't wait to see version 7 available for download. "Journaling UFS, although not bad, is not my first choice as when the power goes down, you might still end up losing data or making the system unstable." Just as I sidenote, I'd like to say that I did not encounter such problems, allthough my boss is one who likes to flip the main power switch of his FreeBSD (UFS2) workstation without shutting it down properly. The fsck works without user interaction, repairing minor problems by itself, but data loss? No. UFS / UFS2 is quite safe because the on disk status is always in a consistent state between the writing operations. It uses soft updates instead of journaling. Metadata is written asynchronously in a definite order. In journaling, as you surely know it from EXT3FS, metadata is written twice, once into the journal, once to the file system, asynchronously. After writing operation to the file system is finished, the information is deleted from the journal. An interruption within this process may lead files to disappear without any warning. "I'm glad FreeBSD has been able to incorporate dtrace as well. It seems to be making a great OS even better." I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so. :-)
          Good News not only for FreeBSD        
But also the distros that are derived from it such as Dragonfly BSD and DesktopBSD. Though I guess it won't be a major effect initially obviously, these teams (once a final release is out) might be able to produce an easy system for even the end user to take advantage of. Though I wonder what they would come up with to do with such a powerful file system. I'd imagine some type of backup system for starters. It could be very interesting to see where this could go with it. In the meantime, I'm hopeful for FreeBSD 7.
          RE: Good News not only for FreeBSD        
But also the distros that are derived from it such as Dragonfly BSD and DesktopBSD. IIRC then DragonflyBSD is fork from FreeBSD and DesktopBSD *is* FreeBSD just like PC-BSD. Journaling filesystems like Gjournal and ZFS is godsent for desktop users because usually desktop computers have no UPS and in case of power failure they are first victims with messed filesystems and lost files.
          RE[2]: Good News not only for FreeBSD        
Oh okay good call. I was trying to find the other name (PC-BSD) but I couldn't recall it so I thought it was Dragonfly BSD. Either way, I agree. I also see this being really great for a fast recovery system along with a backup system. Also with the ability to write those add ons so easily with the API they provide, we could see some really neat other tools blossom it seems like.
          RE: Good News not only for FreeBSD        
there's no plan to port ZFS to DragonflyBSD in the future. the kernels are too much different by now and Matt's going on with his own implementation of a 'cluster filesystem'...
          FreeBSD on the Desktop        
So this is offtopic as is pertains to ZFS, but does directly relate to using FreeBSD on the desktop... Unfortunately, FreeBSD no longer has a qualified developer maintaining Xorg. There are three freebsd ports committers working on bringing Xorg 7.2 into the FreeBSD ports tree. Their focus is on fixing other ports which are now broken due to the changes in X11BASE that is happening at the same time as the migration to Xorg 7.2. No one, however, is currently working on fixing the broken AIGLX support for the radeon and intel drivers ( ). Nor does it appear anyone is working on X11 related bugs (such as ). In addition, one of those three developers has said that once the problems with the other ports are sorted out, they will be merging Xorg 7.2, whether or not AIGLX is still broken at the time. To me, the lack of 3D support for a card which is well supported by open source 3D drivers under linux, makes FreeBSD nearly unusable as a desktop. And, even if DRI did start working on this card, the lack of AIGLX support puts FreeBSD at a severe disadvantage to linux when is comes to 3D desktop support. I believe the only way to get beryl working on FreeBSD at the moment, for example, is with an nVidia card and the nvidia drivers. Till FreeBSD gets someone on board who can remedy these problems, I've had to switch to linux, booting FreeBSD only once in a while to update the system and update my ports.
          RE: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
Yeah 3D desktop, hype of the year. Most people are migrating from Windows to opensource OS xyz because of this eyecandy crap who drives your power consumption to new heights. >Their focus is on fixing other ports which are now broken Some ports, I'm using it with git and it runs quiet smooth. >the lack of AIGLX support puts FreeBSD Yes in terms of your very own "desktop experience", if you do need couture try a Mac. >Unfortunately, FreeBSD no longer has a qualified developer maintaining Xorg. Or maybe Xorg hasn't got qualified developers who can develop system independent.
          RE[2]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
You may consider the 3D desktop hype, but I consider the zoom features to be a necessity at this point, at least for me. Besides, why should I use a Mac when linux does just what I need? FreeBSD used to be on par with linux in that arena, it isn't now. Either way, it's still FreeBSD's problem. They used to have someone who worked on DRI support, they don't now. Besides, 3D accleration at this level has always required kernel support. Expecting the Xorg developers to remove all operating system specific support is not going to happen. Ever... Adam AdamEdited 2007-04-06 20:55
          RE: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
...AIGLX support... Emmm, how aiglx is related to ZFS? If you have nothing to say then don't say it here.
          RE[2]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
They're not... They are both, however, related to the usefulness of FreeBSD on the desktop. That makes no sense. Clearly if I had nothing to say, I wouldn't have said anything. Since I did say something, I must have had something to say. Adam
          RE[3]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
That's mere nonsense, I don't need a 3D desktop environment - it's a toy, nothing more. And ZFS important for the desktop? What a nonsense ...
          RE[3]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
>FreeBSD used to be on par with linux in that arena, it isn't now. FreeBSD primary use was never a desktop system, but it fits of course for many people in this area. Look at some desktops in Linux, people who are actually working with it - they don't use instable features for real productivity. A friend of mine is using Maya at the Linux desktop at home and university, he wouldn't even think of using a 3D desktop ...
          RE[4]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
I never said you did. Adam
          RE[4]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
My point simply is that the number of people for whom FreeBSD fits as a desktop system is going to decrease. Whether or not the FreeBSD project cares to remedy that problem is simply up to them. Adam
          RE[4]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
""" And ZFS important for the desktop? What a nonsense ... """ Well, ZFS does seem already to have easier administration tools than the Linux Partitioning/RAID/LVM/EXT3 stack. There is no reason that all those layers could not be easily controlled through a simple gui. But I'm beginning to despair of it ever happening. It's not like any one of those layers is new. And still, adding a new drive to an existing filesystem is rocket science. It's not just that you have to drop to the command line to do it. It's that you have to drop to the command line and make the new drive a physical volume, add the physical volume to the volume group, expand the logical volume, and then online resize the filesystem. Oh, and you'd better do all that by UUID or label, and not device name, because you are not guaranteed that the device name will remain constant. Simple, isn't it? I envision plain old end users being able to just plug another USB drive into their machine, and have it simply added to their existing filesystem. They can already do this with RAM. Just plug it in and they have 2GB whereas they used to have 1GB. They should be able to do the same with storage. Again, there is no reason we *can't* do this in Linux. But it looks to me like ZFS has at least made some progress toward simplifying FS administration for people who don't happen to be experts. Regarding your other claim. I tend to agree, as things stand today. But, I suspect that composited desktops will gain some actual value once the silly and useless effects are dropped (retaining any features which are actually useful that may sift out), more cards support them, stability increases substantially, and they are considered mundane enough that no one talks about them any more. (And users come down hard on anyone who tries to reintroduce silliness like wobbly windows). But I suppose this is not really the place to have that discussion.Edited 2007-04-07 03:09
          RE[5]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
"My point simply is that the number of people for whom FreeBSD fits as a desktop system is going to decrease." To simplify, I just divide "people for whom FreeBSD fits as a desktop system" into two parts: The ones who need eye candy (this includes 3D desktop as well, allthough I don't consider it as completely useless), and the ones who don't. For the first part, Linux surely is the better choice. KDE, Gnome, Compiz, Beryl et al. are designed for Linux primarily, they work fine here, along with the drivers for ATI or nVidia. Modern Linux distributions don't force anyone to get the hands dirty editing configuration files. The other part will be fine with PC-BSD and DesktopBSD. The better educated ones will use FreeBSD on the desktop as they did for years, setting up their system with the non-mainstream software that is the best solution for their individual needs. I may include myself here: I use FreeBSD at home (along with IRIX) and at work (along with Solaris) as a desktop OS. Even my boss does, and he can be considered quite computer illiterate. :-) Finally, I think your statemend (or assumption) is correct. More and more people concentrate on eye candy, and this is not FreeBSD's main playing field.
          RE[5]: FreeBSD on the Desktop        
It's this ill-fated term "desktop" a buzzword from Microsoft and Apple. I do have my "desktop" at FreeBSD and sometimes, if I have to cope with Debian, I have the same desktop too. So in the end it depends on the user. I could easily say, most of the people nowadays is lost in eye-candy. But people who do need an easier entry level can go with DesktopBSD and PC-BSD - no distros, but an easier entry to FreeBSD. So what? We don't need a 2nd Ubuntu because people are too lazy to learn something. Call it Zen or KISS, it's almost the same. You get a prof. base, with lot of options and you can build up your own environment. No interface-nazis according to Linus, no LSB mumbo jumbo in Linux, no half-cocked drivers just because of some media buzzwords and so on.

          RE[5]: I was hoping for more...        
That sounds a little similar to the Mach project at CMU, and the poaching of code from FreeBSD and NetBSD for Darwin. I doubt Avie Tevanian or Richard Rashid spend their days lamenting the licensing of Mach. Perhaps Jordan Hubbard frets over the mistakes of FreeBSD's licensing, and he simply hides it deep within an exterior image of enjoying working for Apple. If I could read your comment I might be able to respond more sensibly, but I really don't understand what you're saying. People shouldn't expect those that want to use the GPL to use a hypothetical GPL that is more like a MIT/BSD license. If they wanted to release their code like that, they could do so already. The FSF and that group of people have a clear idea of what they want to sprout from their sort of free software. However the GPL doesn't protect the "community" from its own stupidity. It simply promotes its own ideology.

          Brief History Just Been Paid Now Profit Clicking        


The original JustBeenPaid now Profit Clicking and then AdClixExpress was launched in 2004. It never really got off the ground and became dormant after a few months.
JBP was re-launched in January, 2010 and has been performing and paying since. The essence of the new JBP was that members could buy referrals. Unfortunately this proved unworkable, because JBP could never satisfy the demand. Some sponsors also objected to giving up some of their referrals being sold to other members.
JSS (JBP's Synergy Surf) was launched during June, 2010. JSS is the "foundation program" that makes the JSS system indefinitely sustainable.
JSS-Booster was launched during August, 2010 as a way to "boost" JSS.
JSS-Warp was launched during October, 2010 as a way to "boost" both JSS-Booster and JSS.
JSS-Tripler was launched in February, 2011 as another way to "boost" JSS. JSS-Tripler quickly became spectacularly successful, effectively becoming the "tail that wags the JBP dog."
During August, 2011 our server crashed because of traffic overwhelm. Because JBP was written in the Ruby programming language and running under the FreeBSD operating system and our chief programmer at the time was available for only 1-2 hours a week, we had no practical choice other than temporary shutting down the system and rewriting JBP. At the same time, we moved to larger offshore servers.
In September, 2011 a simplified JBP came back online (programmed in PHP), with the buying of referrals eliminated. A "partial Restart" was done --> see JSS-Tripler Restart Feature (RSF) FAQ. A plan of systematically activating parts of JBP in a sensible sequence was followed.

          Microsoft Funds OpenBSD        
The Microsoft corporation has become OpenBSD's first "Gold Level" sponsor after a large donation. (Facebook and Google are both silver contributors). The move is likely related to Microsoft's use of OpenSSH in future versions of Powershell. Meanwhile at the FreeBSD site companies LineRate, NetApp, Google, Hudson River Trading, and Netflix dominate the top sponsors. Noticeably absent was the Apple Computer Corporation who base their OSX and IOS systems off of the free software BSD systems. More info about OpenBSD's 2015 fundraising campaign here.

Perkembangan Perangkat Lunak Bebas………………………………………25 6. Perkembangan Industri Perangkat Lunak di Indonesia……………………... 28 DAFTAR PUSTAKA 1. DEFINISI PERANGKAT LUNAK (SOFTWARE) Software Adalah rangkaian intruksi elektronik yang memerintahkan sebuah komputer untuk melakukan tugas tertentu sesuai dengan perintah yang diberikan oleh seorang pengguna komputer. Rangkaian intruksi tersebut sering disebut dengan “program”. Dan software juga dikenal dengan sebutan “Perangkat atau Piranti Lunak komputer”. Fungsi dari software adalah: • Untuk Membuat semua peralatan yang ada dalam seperangkat komputer dapat bekerja sesuai dengan fungsinya. • Sebagai Operation System untuk perangkat elektronik yang menggunakan basis sistem komputer. • Sebagai media penghubungkan antara komputer dengan penggunanya, agar terjadi suatu kerjasama yang menghasilkan sebuah output sesuai dengan keinginan dari pengguna komputer. Komputer merupakan mesin yang memproses fakta atau data menjadi informasi. Komputer di gunakan orang untuk meningkatkan hasil kerja dan memecahkan berbagai masalah. Yang menjadi pemroses data atau pemecah masalah itu adalah perangkat lunak. Bentuk terkecil dari perangkat lunak adalah operasi aritmatik (+, -, :, x) dan logika (AND, OR, >, <, =). Dari operasi dasar ini di susun program / perangkat lunak. Gambar Tingkat Pemroses Tingkat pemrosesan yang di kerjakan perangkat lunak pun dari machine-like, mulai berubah seperti human-like. Di dalam teori informasi, di susun hirarki informasi, mulai dari data/ fakta, kemudian setelah proses seleksi dan pengurutan menjadi sesuatu yang berguna menjadi informasi. Informasi yang di susun secara sistematis dengan suatu alur logika tertentu menjadi knowledge. Dan pada akhirnya gabungan knowledge yang di gabung dari berbagai sisi guna membangun wisdom. Data yang di proses pun telah banyak berubah, yang semula hanya berupa data bilangan dan karakter merambah ke audio visual (bunyi, suara, gambar, film). Sejauh perkembangan hingga saat ini, seluruh proses menggunakan format data digital dengan satuan bit (binary digit). 2. KLASIFIKASI PERANGKAT LUNAK Perangkat lunak secara umum dapat di bagi 2 yaitu perangkat lunak sistem dan perangkat lunak aplikasi. 1. Perangkat Lunak Sistem Perangkat lunak sistem adalah suatu istilah generik yang merujuk pada jenis perangkat lunak komputer yang mengatur dan mengontrol perangkat keras sehingga perangkat lunak aplikasi dapat melakukan tugasnya. Ia merupakan bagian esensial dari sistem komputer. Sistem operasi adalah suatu contoh yang jelas, sedangkan OpenGL atau pustaka basis data adalah contoh lainnya. Perangkat lunak jenis ini dibedakan dengan perangkat lunak aplikasi, yang merupakan program yang membantu pengguna melakukan tugas spesifik dan produktif, seperti pengolahan kata atau manipulasi gambar. Partisi memori dan sistem operasi merupakan contoh dari perangkat lunak sistem Perangkat lunak sistem dapat di bagi lagi menjadi 3 macam yaitu : a. Bahasa pemrograman : Merupakan perangkat lunak yang bertugas mengkonversikan arsitektur dan algoritma yang di rancang manusia ke dalam format yang dapat di jalankan komputer, contoh bahasa pemrograman di antaranya : BASIC, COBOL, Pascal, C++, FORTRAN. b. Sistem Operasi : saat komputer pertama kali di hidupkan, sistem operasilah yang pertama kali di jalankan, sistem operasi yang mengatur seluruh proses, menterjemahkan masukan, mengatur proses internal, memanejemen penggunaan memori dan memberikan keluaran ke peralatan yang bersesuaian, contoh sistem operasi : DOS, Unix, Windows 95, IMB OS/2, Apple’s System 7. c. Utility : sistem operasi merupakan perangkat lunak sistem dengan fungsi tertentu, misalnya pemeriksaan perangkat keras (hardware troubleshooting), memeriksa disket yang rusak (bukan rusak fisik), mengatur ulang isi harddisk (partisi, defrag), contoh Utilty adalah Norton Utility. 2. Perangkat Lunak Aplikasi Perangkat lunak aplikasi merupakan bagian perangkat lunak yang sangat banyak di jumpai dan terus berkembang. Sebelum tahun 1990-an aplikasi yang di kenal yaitu pemroses kata (Word Star, Chi Write), pemroses tabel (Lotus 123, Quatro Pro), database (DBASE), dan hiburan (game). Pada perkembangan pemroses kata, tabel dan database saat ini telah di bundel menjadi aplikasi office dengan tambahan aplikasi untuk pembuatan presentasi yang nanti akan di berikan pada pelatihan ini. Contoh aplikasi office adalah Microsoft Office yang terdiri dari Word(pemroses kata), Excel (pemroses tabel), Access (database), dan PowerPoint (presentasi). Yang berkembang sangat banyak saat ini adalah aplikasi multimedia dan internet. Contoh aplikasi multimedia adalah Winamp untuk memutar musik berformat MP3 atau CD Audio, kemudian RealPlayer yang dapat digunakan untuk menonton film atau VCD. Aplikasi internet yang umum di gunakan adalah untuk browsing, e-mail, chatting dan messenger. Aplikasi yang bersifat khusus di antaranya untuk membantu pekerjaan Engineer seperti AutoCAD (gambar struktur), Protel (gambar rangkaian elektronik), dan Matlab (pemroses dan visualisasi persamaan matematis). Perangkat lunak dalam penggunaannya dapat diklasifikasikan menjadi 5 macam yaitu : 1. Sistem operasi (Operasi system) 2. Program Utilitas (utilities Program) 3. Program Aplikasi (Aplikasi Program) 4. Program paket (Package Program) 5. Bahasa pemprograman (Programming Language) 1. Sistem operasi (Operasi system) a. Definisi Sistem Operasi Sistem operasi (bahasa Inggris: Operating system ; OS) adalah seperangkat program yang mengelola sumber daya perangkat keras komputer, dan menyediakan layanan umum untuk aplikasi perangkat lunak. Sistem operasi adalah jenis yang paling penting dari perangkat lunak sistem dalam sistem komputer. Tanpa sistem operasi, pengguna tidak dapat menjalankan program aplikasi pada komputer mereka, kecuali program aplikasi boot diri. Waktu-berbagi jadwal tugas sistem operasi untuk penggunaan yang efisien dari sistem dan juga dapat mencakup akuntansi untuk alokasi biaya waktu prosesor, penyimpanan massa, cetak, dan sumber daya lainnya. Untuk fungsi-fungsi perangkat keras seperti sebagai masukan dan keluaran dan alokasi memori, sistem operasi bertindak sebagai perantara antara program aplikasi dan perangkat keras komputer,[1][2] meskipun kode aplikasi biasanya dieksekusi langsung oleh perangkat keras dan seringkali akan menghubungi OS atau terputus oleh itu. Sistem operasi yang ditemukan pada hampir semua perangkat yang berisi komputer-dari ponsel dan konsol permainan video untuk superkomputer dan server web. Contoh populer sistem operasi modern termasuk Linux, Android, iOS, Mac OS X, dan Microsoft Windows. Biasanya, istilah Sistem Operasi sering ditujukan kepada semua perangkat lunak yang masuk dalam satu paket dengan sistem komputer sebelum aplikasi-aplikasi perangkat lunak terinstal. Sistem operasi adalah perangkat lunak sistem yang bertugas untuk melakukan kontrol dan manajemen perangkat keras serta operasi-operasi dasar sistem, termasuk menjalankan perangkat lunak aplikasi seperti program-program pengolah kata dan peramban web. Secara umum, Sistem Operasi adalah perangkat lunak pada lapisan pertama yang ditempatkan pada memori komputer pada saat komputer dinyalakan. Sedangkan software-software lainnya dijalankan setelah Sistem Operasi berjalan, dan Sistem Operasi akan melakukan layanan inti umum untuk software-software itu. Layanan inti umum tersebut seperti akses ke disk, manajemen memori, skeduling task, dan antar-muka user. Sehingga masing-masing software tidak perlu lagi melakukan tugas-tugas inti umum tersebut, karena dapat dilayani dan dilakukan oleh Sistem Operasi. Bagian kode yang melakukan tugas-tugas inti dan umum tersebut dinamakan dengan "kernel" suatu Sistem Operasi. Kalau sistem komputer terbagi dalam lapisan-lapisan, maka Sistem Operasi adalah penghubung antara lapisan hardware dan lapisan software. Lebih jauh daripada itu, Sistem Operasi melakukan semua tugas-tugas penting dalam komputer, dan menjamin aplikasi-aplikasi yang berbeda dapat berjalan secara bersamaan dengan lancar. Sistem Operasi menjamin aplikasi software lainnya dapat menggunakan memori, melakukan input dan output terhadap peralatan lain, dan memiliki akses kepada sistem berkas. Apabila beberapa aplikasi berjalan secara bersamaan, maka Sistem Operasi mengatur schedule yang tepat, sehingga sedapat mungkin semua proses yang berjalan mendapatkan waktu yang cukup untuk menggunakan prosesor (CPU) serta tidak saling mengganggu. Dalam banyak kasus, Sistem Operasi menyediakan suatu pustaka dari fungsi-fungsi standar, dimana aplikasi lain dapat memanggil fungsi-fungsi itu, sehingga dalam setiap pembuatan program baru, tidak perlu membuat fungsi-fungsi tersebut dari awal. Sistem Operasi secara umum terdiri dari beberapa bagian: 1. Mekanisme Boot, yaitu meletakkan kernel ke dalam memory 2. Kernel, yaitu inti dari sebuah Sistem Operasi 3. Command Interpreter atau shell, yang bertugas membaca input dari pengguna 4. Pustaka-pustaka, yaitu yang menyediakan kumpulan fungsi dasar dan standar yang dapat dipanggil oleh aplikasi lain 5. Driver untuk berinteraksi dengan hardware eksternal, sekaligus untuk mengontrol mereka. Sebagian Sistem Operasi hanya mengizinkan satu aplikasi saja yang berjalan pada satu waktu (misalnya DOS), tetapi sebagian besar Sistem Operasi baru mengizinkan beberapa aplikasi berjalan secara simultan pada waktu yang bersamaan. Sistem Operasi seperti ini disebut sebagai Multi-tasking Operating System (misalnya keluarga sistem operasi UNIX). Beberapa Sistem Operasi berukuran sangat besar dan kompleks, serta inputnya tergantung kepada input pengguna, sedangkan Sistem Operasi lainnya sangat kecil dan dibuat dengan asumsi bekerja tanpa intervensi manusia sama sekali. Tipe yang pertama sering disebut sebagai Desktop OS, sedangkan tipe kedua adalah Real-Time OS, contohnya adalah Windows, Linux, Free BSD, Solaris, palm, symbian, dan sebagainya. Seiring dengan berkembangnya Sistem Operasi, semakin banyak lagi layanan yang menjadi layanan inti umum. Kini, sebuah OS mungkin perlu menyediakan layanan network dan koneksitas internet, yang dulunya tidak menjadi layanan inti umum. Sistem Operasi juga perlu untuk menjaga kerusakan sistem komputer dari gangguan program perusak yang berasal dari komputer lainnya, seperti virus. Daftar layanan inti umum akan terus bertambah. Program saling berkomunikasi antara satu dengan lainnya dengan Antarmuka Pemrograman Aplikasi, Application Programming Interface atau disingkat dengan API. Dengan API inilah program aplikasi dapat berkomunikasi dengan Sistem Operasi. Sebagaimana manusia berkomunikasi dengan komputer melalui Antarmuka User, program juga berkomunikasi dengan program lainnya melalui API. Walaupun demikian API sebuah komputer tidaklah berpengaruh sepenuhnya pada program-program yang dijalankan diatas platform operasi tersebut. Contohnya bila program yang dibuat untuk windows 3.1 bila dijalankan pada windows 95 dan generasi setelahnya akan terlihat perbedaan yang mencolok antara window program tersebut dengan program yang lain. b. Sejarah Sistem Operasi Menurut Tanenbaum, sistem operasi mengalami perkembangan yang sangat pesat, yang dapat dibagi kedalam empat generasi: Generasi Pertama (1945-1955) Generasi pertama merupakan awal perkembangan sistem komputasi elektronik sebagai pengganti sistem komputasi mekanik, hal itu disebabkan kecepatan manusia untuk menghitung terbatas dan manusia sangat mudah untuk membuat kecerobohan, kekeliruan bahkan kesalahan. Pada generasi ini belum ada sistem operasi, maka sistem komputer diberi instruksi yang harus dikerjakan secara langsung. Generasi Kedua (1955-1965) Generasi kedua memperkenalkan Batch Processing System, yaitu Job yang dikerjakan dalam satu rangkaian, lalu dieksekusi secara berurutan.Pada generasi ini sistem komputer belum dilengkapi sistem operasi, tetapi beberapa fungsi sistem operasi telah ada, contohnya fungsi sistem operasi ialah FMS dan IBSYS. Generasi Ketiga (1965-1980) Pada generasi ini perkembangan sistem operasi dikembangkan untuk melayani banyak pemakai sekaligus, dimana para pemakai interaktif berkomunikasi lewat terminal secara on-line ke komputer, maka sistem operasi menjadi multi-user (di gunakan banyak pengguna sekali gus) dan multi- programming (melayani banyak program sekali gus). Generasi Keempat (Pasca 1980an) Dewasa ini, sistem operasi dipergunakan untuk jaringan komputer dimana pemakai menyadari keberadaan komputer- komputer yang saling terhubung satu sama lainnya. Pada masa ini para pengguna juga telah dinyamankan dengan Graphical User Interface yaitu antar-muka komputer yang berbasis grafis yang sangat nyaman, pada masa ini juga dimulai era komputasi tersebar dimana komputasi-komputasi tidak lagi berpusat di satu titik, tetapi dipecah dibanyak komputer sehingga tercapai kinerja yang lebih baik. c. Sistem Operasi saat ini Sistem operasi-sistem operasi utama yang digunakan komputer sistem umum (termasuk PC, komputer personal) terbagi menjadi 3 kelompok besar: 1. Keluarga Microsoft Windows - yang antara lain terdiri dari Windows Desktop Environment (versi 1.x hingga versi 3.x), Windows 9x (Windows 95, 98, dan Windows ME), dan Windows NT (Windows NT 3.x, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 (Seven) yang dirilis pada tahun 2009, dan Windows 8 yang akan dirilis pada tahun 2012 atau lebih lambat)). 2. Keluarga Unix yang menggunakan antarmuka sistem operasi POSIX, seperti SCO UNIX, keluarga BSD (Berkeley Software Distribution), GNU/Linux, MacOS/X (berbasis kernel BSD yang dimodifikasi, dan dikenal dengan nama Darwin) dan GNU/Hurd. 3. Mac OS, adalah sistem operasi untuk komputer keluaran Apple yang biasa disebut Mac atau Macintosh. Sistem operasi yang terbaru adalah Mac OS X versi 10.6 (Snow Leopard). Musim panas 2011 direncanakan peluncuran versi 10.7 (Lion). Sedangkan komputer Mainframe, dan Super komputer menggunakan banyak sekali sistem operasi yang berbeda-beda, umumnya merupakan turunan dari sistem operasi UNIX yang dikembangkan oleh vendor seperti IBM AIX, HP/UX, dan lain-lain. Sistem operasi sangat berkaitan dengan prosesor yang di gunakan. Jenis prosesor pada PC yang umum adalah yang kompatibel dengan produk awal IBM dan Macintosh. PC Macintosh, perangkat lunaknya di kembangkan oleh perusahaan yang sama sehingga perkembangannya tidak sepesat cloning IBM PC. Sistem operasi dari cloning IBM saat ini secara umum terbagi menjadi 2 aliran yaitu komersil yang di buat oleh Microsoft dan yang bersifat freeware yang di kembangkan oleh peneliti dari seluruh dunia karena bersifat open source, yaitu bahan baku pembuatan dapat di baca, sehingga hasilnya dapat di tambah atau di modifikasi oleh setiap orang. Sementara interaksi antara pengguna dan komputer di kenal melalui 2 cara, cara yang pertama adalah pemberian instruksi melalui penulisan perintah, atau dengan cara tunjuk (pointer) dengan tampilan grafis. Gambar Sistem Operasi Berbasis Teks Gambar Sistem Operasi Berbasis Grafis 2. Program Utilitas (utilities Program) Perangkat lunak utilitas merupakan perangkat lunak komputer yang didesain untuk membantu proses analisis, konfigurasi, optimasi, dan membantu pengelolaan sebuah komputer ataupun sistem. Perangkat lunak utilitas harus dibedakan dengan perangkat lunak aplikasi yang memungkinkan pengguna melakukan berbagai hal dengan komputer seperti mengetik, melakukan permainan, merancang gambar, dan lain-lain. Perangkat lunak utilitas lebih memfokuskan penggunaannya pada pengoptimasian fungsi dari infrastruktur yang terdapat dalam sebuah komputer. Karena fungsinya, perangkat lunak utilitas umumnya tidak ditujukan untuk pengguna secara umum, melainkan ditujukan untuk pengguna yang memiliki pemahaman atas cara kerja sistem komputer yang cukup baik. Kebanyakan perangkat keras utilitas ini dibuat secara khsus untuk melakukan fungsi tertentu pada suatu area komputasi secara spesifik, seperti memformat harddisk, atau melakukan pengecekan konektifitas jaringan. Namun dalam perkembangannya sejumlah perangkat lunak utilitas terkadang pula dipaketkan dalam satu paket utilitas yang ditujukan untuk beragam kebutuhan. Contoh-contoh Program Utilitas : • Backup, utilitas untuk melakukan backup data yang ditujukan untuk membuat duplikat arsip untuk menghindari terjadinya kehilangan data bila perangkat penyimpanan tidak dapat berfungsi. Contoh utilitas backup yang cukup popiler adalah Norton Backup (dari Symantec) dan Colorado Scheduler. • Pemulihan Data, utilitas pemulihan data digunakan untuk mengembalikan data yang secara fisik telah rusak atau berubah. Data dapat dirusak oleh virus, perangkat lunak yang buruk, kegagalan perangkat keras, dan fluktuasi daya listrik yang terjadi ketika data sedang ditulisi/diubah. • Anti virus, perangkat lunak antivirus men-scan semua disk dan memori untuk mendeteksi kehadiran virus, dan mengisolasinya untuk mencegah kerusakan lebih lanjut. • Kompresi data, utilitas kompresi berfungsi untuk memperkecil ukuran sebuah dokumen sehingga dapat menghemat pemanfaatan ruang penyimpanan, serta mempermudah pendistribusian. 3. Program Aplikasi (Aplikasi Program) Merupakan perangkat yang berfungsi untuk melakukan berbagai bentuk tugas perkantoran seperti pengolah kata, lembar kerja, presentasi, pengolahan halaman web, hingga perangkat media player,dan sebagainya.Hal ini sudah berkembang sejak sistem operasi tersebut dikembangkan. Software Aplikasi dapat dikelompokkan dalam beberapa bagian, yaitu: a. Pengolahan kata (word Processor) Berfungsi untuk melakukan pengolahan kata,yaitu pekerjaan yang berhubungan dengan naskah dan berbagai macam administrasi surat-menyurat.Contoh: Wordstar, Microsoft Word, Amipro, Word Perfect. Gambar salah satu aplikasi pengolah kata. b. Pengolah Angka (Spread Sheet) Berfungsi untuk melakukan pekerjaan yang banyak berhubungan dengan angka-angka, seperti penggunaan perhitungan, laporan keuangan, dan grafik.Contoh:Lotus 123, Star Office Calc, Open Office Calc, Microsoft Excel, Symphony, Super Calc. Gambar Lotus 123 beserta lembar kerja Gambar Star Office Calc beserta lembar kerja Gambar Open Office Calc beserta lembar kerja Gambar Microsoft Excel beserta lembar kerja c. Pengolah data (Data base) Database yaitu sebuah teknologi pengolahan data yang sangat diperlukan bagi para pegiat pengolah data. Dengan system database akan mempermudah pengguna (user) dalam pencarian data dan sekaligus mempermudah pekerja dalam melayani dan menggunakan data tersebut. Dengan pengolahan database penyajian data lebih sederhana dibandingkan pengolahan data secama manual lainnya, seperti Word dan Exel.Data base berfungsi untuk melakukan pengolahan data.Data tersebut dapat berupa angka, kata atau gabungan angka dan kata.Contoh:dBase, Fox Base, Fox Pro, Clipper, Microsoft Access, Visual Fox Pro, Paradox dan lain sebagainya. Gambar Ms. Access Gambar Visual Fox Pro Gambar Paradox d. Multimedia Aplikasi multimedia saat ini sangat banyak dan beragam. Di katakan Multimedia karena selain penggunaan media teks, aplikasi ini dapat memproses / menampilkan dalam bentuk yang lain yaitu gambar, suara dan film. Aplikasi Multimedia sangat berkaitan dengan format data yang di gunakan. Aplikasi Multimedia umumnya di pisahkan lagi menjadi aplikasi yang di gunakan untuk membuat, yang hanya di gunakan untuk menampilkan saja dan aplikasi pengaturan. Format-format digital multimedia di antaranya : • MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) , format suara instrumen ini di perkenalkan pada tahun 1983 oleh perusahaan musik elektrik seperti Roland, Yamaha dan Korg. Format MIDI bersifat sangat kompak dengan ukurannya yang kecil, suara yang di hasilkan oleh MIDI dengan dukungan sound card yang memilik synthesizer (penghasil suara elektrik) sangatlah mirip dengan organ elektrik yang bisa memainkan berbagai alat musik. • MP3, format suara yang terkenal saat ini berbeda dengan MIDI yang hanya instrument, MP3 merekam seluruh suara termasuk suara penyanyinya. Kualitas suara MP3 akan berbanding dengan ukuran penyimpannya. Kualitas yang banyak di gunakan untuk merekam musik adalah standar CD-ROM (44,2 KHz, 16 bit, stereo), sementara kualitas terendah adalah kualitas seperti telepon (5 KHz, 8 bit, mono). • MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group), merupakan format yang di susun oleh ahli dari berbagai penjuru dunia untuk format multimedia. • AVI (Audio Video Interleave), format AVI di buat oleh Microsoft dan mudah di pindah-pindahkan di aplikasi buatan Microsoft lainnya seperti Word atau PowerPoint Contoh aplikasi multimedia adalah Winamp, Audio Pro untuk memutar musik berformat MP3 atau CD Audio.Kemudian RealPlayer, Xing, atau Jet Audio yang dapat digunakan untuk menonton film atau VCD. Gambar Multimedia e. Komunikasi dan Internet Untuk melakukan komunikasi antar komputer antara dua komputer atau lebih. Perangkat lunak yang berhubungan dengan internet sangat berkaitan dengan aplikasi internet. Perangkat lunak yang berhubungan dengan internet sangat berkaitan dengan aplikasi internet. Aplikasi Internet adalah protokol yang digunakan untuk berhubungan antara satu orang atau mesin dengan pihak lain yang berjauhan. Aplikasi internet akan menyangkut dua sisi, yaitu sisi penyedia (server) atau sisi pengguna (client). Contoh aplikasi internet dan perangkat lunak dari sisi pengguna yang umum di gunakan adalah : 1. HTTP (Hypertext Transfer protocol), merupakan aplikasi internet yang menampilkan baris kalimat, atau gambar, dengan beberapa kata yang di beri tanda garis bawah (hypertext). Dari hypertext ini, pengguna dapat melompat dari satu dokumen (page) ke dokumen lainnya. Perangkat lunak di sisi pengguna yang menjalankan http di kenal sebagai browser. Contoh browser adalah Internet Explorer (gambar 3.11) dan Netscape. 2. E-mail (Electronic mail), merupakan aplikasi surat menyurat di internet. Setiap orang memiliki alamat e-mail, dan bisa saling bertukar dokumen satu sama lain. Contoh perangkat lunaknya adalah Outlook Express. 3. Messenger. Messenger di gunakan untuk berkomunikasi antara satu orang atau lebih (conference), selain komunikasi melalu teks (messsage), juga bisa berupa suara (voice) mapun film (webcam) Gambar Komunikasi Lewat Internet f. Pendidikan dan Game Software untuk membantu memahami sesuatu pelajaran banyak dikemas dalam bentuk game dengan tujuan agar tidak membosankan, contohnya adalah: PC Globe, Bodyworks, Science Adventure, Reader Rabbit, dan lain-lain. Walaupun tingkat pengguna game di Indonesia masih jauh ketinggalan dibandingkan dengan pengguna di luar negeri namun kita melihat pertumbuhan yang signifikan dari tahun ke tahun. Pasar game online terutama sangat besar dan semakin menampakkan wujudnya dengan adanya beberapa finalis Indonesia di ajang perlombaan game tingkat dunia. Gambar Program Belajar dengan Game g. Perancangan Gambar Aplikasi yang bersifat khusus di antaranya untuk membantu pekerjaan Engineer seperti AutoCAD (gambar struktur), Protel (gambar rangkaian elektronik), Matlab (pemroses dan visualisasi persamaan matematis), Photos Shop (mengolah gambar), dan Flash (untuk membuat halaman WEB), dan lainnya. Gambar Radiator (AutoCad) Gambar Protel XP Gambar Matlab (pemroses dan visualisasi persamaan matematis) Gambar Photo Shop h. Anti Virus Pada ilmu komputer,virus yang dimaksud adalah sebuah program komputer yang memiliki kemampuan untuk menggandakan diri dengan cara menyisipkan program /script ke dalam sebuah file lain. Mirip seperti virus biologis, virus komputer dapat menyebar dengan cepat pada file-file dalam sebuah komputer, atau bahkan menulari file pada komputer lain, baik melalui jaringan maupun lewat kegiatan tukar-menukar file. Banyak virus yang sengaja disebarkan melalui e-mail. Oleh karenanya, jika komputer kita terhubung langsung ke internet, sebaiknya kita harus memasangan anti virus dan upayakan agar selalu ter-update (diperbaharui). Antivirus adalah sebuah jenis perangkat lunak yang digunakan untuk mengamankan, mendeteksi, dan menghapus virus komputer dari sistem komputer. Antivirus disebut juga Virus Protection Software. Aplikasi ini dapat menentukan apakah sebuah sistem komputer telah terinfeksi dengan sebuah virus atau tidak. Umumnya, perangkat lunak ini berjalan di latar belakang (background) dan melakukan pemindaian terhadap semua berkas yang diakses (dibuka, dimodifikasi, atau ketika disimpan). Antivirus - antivirus terbaru sekarang tidak hanya mendeteksi virus. Program antivirus sekarang juga telah dilengkapi dengan kemampuan untuk mendeteksi spyware, rootkits, dan malware - malware lainnya. Tidak hanya itu, antivirus sekarang dilengkapi firewall untuk melindungi komputer dari serangan hacker dan anti spam untuk mencegah masuknya email sampah dan/atau virus ke inbox pengguna. Pada umumnya, cara kerja antivirus adalah: • Pendeteksian dengan menggunakan basis data virus signature (virus signature database): Cara kerja antivirus ini merupakan pendekatan yang banyak digunakan oleh antivirus tradisional, yang mencari tanda-tanda dari keberadaan dari virus dengan menggunakan sebagian kecil dari kode virus yang telah dianalisis oleh vendor antivirus, dan telah dikatalogisasi sesuai dengan jenisnya, ukurannya, daya hancurnya dan beberapa kategori lainnya. Cara ini terbilang cepat dan dapat diandalkan untuk mendeteksi virus-virus yang telah dianalisis oleh vendor antivirus, tapi tidak dapat mendeteksi virus yang baru hingga basis data virus signature yang baru diinstalasikan ke dalam sistem. Basis data virus signature ini dapat diperoleh dari vendor antivirus dan umumnya dapat diperoleh secara gratis melalui download atau melalui berlangganan (subscription), dan/atau • Pendeteksian dengan melihat cara bagaimana virus bekerja: Cara kerja antivirus seperti ini merupakan pendekatan yang baru yang dipinjam dari teknologi yang diterapkan dalam Intrusion Detection System (IDS). Cara ini sering disebut juga sebagai Behavior-blocking detection. Cara ini menggunakan policy (kebijakan) yang harus diterapkan untuk mendeteksi keberadaan sebuah virus. Jika ada kelakuan perangkat lunak yang "tidak wajar" menurut policy yang diterapkan, seperti halnya perangkat lunak yang mencoba untuk mengakses address book untuk mengirimkan e-mail secara massal terhadap daftar e-mail yang berada di dalam address book tersebut (cara ini sering digunakan oleh virus untuk menularkan virus melalui e-mail), maka antivirus akan menghentikan proses yang dilakukan oleh perangkat lunak tersebut. Antivirus juga dapat mengisolasi kode-kode yang dicurigai sebagai virus hingga administrator menentukan apa yang akan dilakukan selanjutnya. Keuntungan dari cara ini adalah antivirus dapat mendeteksi adanya virus-virus baru yang belum dikenali oleh basis data virus signature. Kekurangannya, jelas karena antivirus memantau cara kerja perangkat lunak secara keseluruhan (bukan memantau berkas), maka seringnya antivirus membuat alarm palsu atau "False Alarm" (jika konfigurasi antivirus terlalu "keras"), atau bahkan mengizinkan virus untuk berkembangbiak di dalam sistem (jika konfigurasi antivirus terlalu "lunak"), terjadi false positive. Beberapa produsen menyebut teknik ini sebagai heuristic scanning. Teknologi Heuristic Scanning ini telah berkembang begitu jauh hingga sekarang. Beberapa antivirus mengecek sebuah file dengan definisi biasa. Jika lolos dari deteksi biasa, maka file tersebut dijalankan di sebuah lingkungan virtual. Semua perubahan yang dilakukan file bersifat seperti virus, maka pengguna akan diperingatkan. Jenis antivirus berdasarkan pengguna Antivirus berdasarkan penggunanya dibagi menjadi 2, yaitu Home User dan Network /Corporate User. Untuk home user, antivirus berjalan seperti biasa. Untuk versi jaringan (network), antivirus dapat melakukan scan di komputer - komputer client dan network drive. Selain itu, proses update komputer client dalam jaringan tidak harus langsung dari Internet. Komputer client dapat melakukan upate langsung dari server jaringan. Antivirus berdasarkan cara memperolehnya 1. Free antivirus : anti virus yang diperoleh secara gratis 2. Trial antivirus : Anti virus yang diperoleh secara gratis namun diberi batasan waktu 3. Donation antivirus : Anti virus yang diperoleh dengan harus mendonasi 4. Paid antivirus : antivirus yang diperoleh dengan cara membeli. Software untuk membasmi virus dari perangkat penyimpan computer, contoh:Mc Afee, Norton Anti Virus, Panda, dan lainnya.Virus adalah software yang dibuat untuk merusak data atau program computer, contohnya adalah: PC Brain,Hackers, My Heart, Pepsin, Bagle, MyDoom dan lainnya. 4. Program paket (Package Program) Package Software merupakan suatu software yang dibikin oleh Software House ataupun Konsultan Komputer ataupun Organisasi yang ditulis agar bisa digunakan oleh para pemakai komputer. Paket software biasanya memanfaatkan programming language yang oleh kebanyakan pemakai komputer masih dianggap terlalu sulit untuk digunakan ataupun dimanfaatkan Dengan adanya package-software ini, komputer menjadi semakin mudah untuk digunakan oleh para pemakai. Penggunaan komputer benar-benar diarahkan kepada konsep user-friendly (komputer semakin dekat dengan pemakai dan komputer semakin mudah digunakan) berbagai kesulitan ataupun prosedur yang terdapat didalam programming language, teratasi dengan adanya package software. 5. Bahasa pemprograman (Programming Language) Merupakan perangkat lunak yang bertugas mengkonversikan arsitektur dan algoritma yang di rancang manusia ke dalam format yang dapat di jalankan komputer. Menurut tingkat kedekatannya dengan mesin komputer, bahasa pemrograman terdiri dari: 1. Bahasa Mesin, yaitu memberikan perintah kepada komputer dengan memakai kode bahasa biner, contohnya 01100101100110 2. Bahasa Tingkat Rendah, atau dikenal dengan istilah bahasa rakitan (bahasa Inggris Assembly), yaitu memberikan perintah kepada komputer dengan memakai kode-kode singkat (kode mnemonic), contohnya MOV, SUB, CMP, JMP, JGE, JL, LOOP, dsb. 3. Bahasa Tingkat Menengah, yaitu bahasa komputer yang memakai campuran instruksi dalam kata-kata bahasa manusia (lihat contoh Bahasa Tingkat Tinggi di bawah) dan instruksi yang bersifat simbolik, contohnya {, }, ?, <<, >>, &&, ||, dsb. 4. Bahasa Tingkat Tinggi, yaitu bahasa komputer yang memakai instruksi berasal dari unsur kata-kata bahasa manusia, contohnya begin, end, if, for, while, and, or, dan sebagainya. Sebagian besar bahasa pemrograman digolongkan sebagai Bahasa Tingkat Tinggi, hanya bahasa C yang digolongkan sebagai Bahasa Tingkat Menengah dan Assembly yang merupakan Bahasa Tingkat Rendah. Berikut ini adalah daftar bahasa pemrograman komputer: • ABC • Ada • ALGOL • Applescript • Assembly • BASIC: o ASP o BASIC o COMAL o Visual Basic o Visual Basic for Applications o VBScript • Batch (MS-DOS) • COBOL • UNIX shell script: o Bourne shell (sh) script o Bourne-Again shell (bash) script o Korn shell (ksh) script o C shell (csh) script • C: o C++ o C# o Visual C++ • ColdFusion • dBase dkk.: o Clipper o Foxbase o Visual FoxPro • Eiffel • Fortran • Go • Haskell • Java o JavaScript o JSP • Lisp • Logo • Pascal o Delphi • Perl • Prolog • Python • PHP • Pike • R • REXX • REBOL • RPG • Ruby • Simula • Smalltalk • Scheme • SQL 3. PERKEMBANGAN PEMBUATAN PERANGKAT LUNAK Dari perkembangan perangkat lunak, kita bisa membayangkan bagaimana perkembangan interaksi manusia dengan perangkat lunak. Bentuk paling primitif dari perangkat lunak, menggunakan aljabar Boolean, yang di representasikan sebagai binary digit (bit), yaitu 1 (benar / on) atau 0 (salah / off), cari ini sudah pasti sangat menyulitkan, sehingga orang mulai mengelompokkan bit tersebut menjadi nible (4 bit), byte (8 bit), word (2 byte), double word (32 bit). Kelompok-kelompok bit ini di susun ke dalam struktur instruksi seperti penyimpanan, transfer, operasi aritmatika, operasi logika, dan bentuk bit ini di ubah menjadi kode-kode yang di kenal sebagai assembler. Kode-kode mesin sendiri masih cukup menyulitkan karena tuntutan untuk dapat menghapal kode tersebut dan format (aturan) penulisannya yang cukup membingungkan, dari masalah ini kemudian lahir bahasa pemrograman tingkat tinggi yang seperti bahasa manusia (bahasa Inggris). Saat ini pembuatan perangkat lunak sudah menjadi suatu proses produksi yang sangat kompleks, dengan urutan proses yang panjang dengan melibatkan puluhan bahkan ratusan orang dalam pembuatannya. Gambar Siklus Perangkat Lunak 4. EVOLUSI PERANGKAT LUNAK Kita ketahui komputer membutuhkan data atau fakta, dimana data ini pada saat di input akan diterjemahkan menjadi bilangan biner. Mesin komputer memproses fakta atau data menjadi suatu informasi yang berguna bagi penggunanya. Dengan komputer di harapkan dapat meningkatkan hasil kerja dan memecahkan berbagai masalah. Sebelum menjadi informasi data tersebut dip roses melalui hardware yang terletak pada CPU dengan menggunakan perangkat lunak. Perangkat lunak atau software adalah program dari komputer. Perangkat lunak adalah program yang berisi instruksi untuk melakukan proses pengolahan data. Saat ini, tingkat pemrosesan yang dikerjakan perangkat lunak bersifat machine-like (keinginan mesin) mulai berubah dengan sifat human-like (keinginan manusia). Dalam teori informasi, disusun hirarki informasi mulai dari data atau fakta kemudian setelah proses seleksi dan pengurutan menjadi sesuatu yang berguna menjadi informasi. Informasi yang disusun secara sistematis dengan suatu alur logika tertentu menjadi knowledge (pengetahuan). Perangkat keras tidak akan berfungsi tanpa danya perangkat lunak begitupun sebaliknya perangkat lunak tidak akan berfungsi tanpa adanya perangkat keras. Kedua perangkat tersebut memang saling berkaitan sehingga komputer dapat berfungsi dengan baik. Perkembangan teknologi terutama dalam perangkat keras terus diimbangi oleh perangkat lunaknya sehingga penggunaan komputer lebih maksimal. Kemampuan komputer dirasakan sangat berkaitan dengan perangkat keras dan perangkat lunaknya, maka dari itu diperlukan perangkat lunak yang benar-benar mendukung perangkat kerasnya. Bentuk paling sederhana dari perangkat lunak, menggunakan aljabar Boolean yang di representasikan sebagai binary digit (bit), yaitu 1 (benar) atau 0 (salah), cara ini sudah pasti sangat menyulitkan, sehingga orang mulai mengelompokan bit tersebut menjadi nible (4 bit), byte (8 bit), word (16 bit), double word (32 bit). Kelompok-kelompok bit ini disusun ke dalam struktur instruksi seperti penyimpanan, transfer, operasi aritmatika, operasi logika dan bentuk bit ini di ubah menjadi kode-kode yang dikenal sebagai assembler. Kode-kode mesin sendiri masih cukup menyulitkan karenan tuntutan untuk dapat menghapal kode tersebut dan format (aturan) penulisannya yang cukup membingungkan, dari maslah tersebut ini kemudian lahir bahasa pemrograman tingkat tinggi yang seperti bahasa manusia (bahasa inggris). Saat ini pembuatan perangkat lunak sudah menjadi suatu proses produksi yang sangat kompleks, dengan urutan proses yang panjang dengan melibatkanpuluhan bahkan ratusan orang dalam pembuatannya. Berdasarkan perkembangannya perangkat lunak sampai dengan era sekarang dibagi menjadi beberapa era yaitu : Evolusi software secara garis besar diklasifikasikan menjadi era belum adanya computer dan setelah adanya computer. Sebelum adanya computer dibagi menjadi era primitive dan era mekanis. Sedangkan pada era setelah adanya computer, evolusi software mengikuti evolusi hardware komputer itu sendiri. Era software sebelum adanya komputer diklasifikasikan menjadi dua era yaitu : Era primitive (± 300 SM) di mana software dibuat dengan melakukan petunjuk-petunjuk sederhana dengan menggunakan kode gerak sejenis semaphore. Era Mekanis (1840-1930-an) yang diterapkan pada peralatan Anatycal Engine dan pemakaian mesin kartu plong (punch card). Sedangkan era software setelah adanya komputer yang berarti menggunakan teknologi elektronis, dibagi menjadi era pioneer, era
