Did You Know? {Lynda}

Several years ago Tangie turned to me and said “I want to start my own web site!”. What she eventually turned out was a great little forum site for her and her friends. I was amazed at what she did. I however took another several years to learn what a “THREAD” was. Eventually after Tangie started her own store site www.TangieBaxter.com (shameless plug) and suddenly she needed my help. “Help!!!?” I thought to myself , I still didn’t know what a Thread was. Thankfully Tangie introduced me to Lynda, lynda.com that is.

Lynda.com is a wonderful tutorial site where for:$25 a month or $250 a year or a Premium $375 that includes exercise files you can lean how to create web sites, Photo Shop your favorite TV or Movie hunk into your family reunion photos

Did You Know? {Zip IT}

~~~~Studio Tangie would like to welcome Tangie’s DH Dave ~~~~
He will be dropping in from time to time to share random facts and knowledge.
Without further adieu his first post!

Computers seem to keep getting faster. . . the Internet keeps getting faster but downloading zip files and opening them seemed to just get slower and slower for me! One day I had finally had enough. My built in Windows Vista© zip tool was crawling slower than a turtle to hare salon. I started searching for a alternate zip program. However in order to download Winzip© I had to try one of their “sponsors” and sign up for junk email ( Who wants that) I finally ran across a Shareware site called 7-Zip.org
7-zip is whats called open source software (which means its FREEEEEEEE) it also is constantly getting updated and improved by people who like to program computers for fun. Here are some of its features:

The main features of 7-Zip

  • High compression ratio in new 7z format with LZMA compression
  • Supported formats:
    • Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR
    • Unpacking only: ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, DEB, DMG, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MSI, NSIS, RAR, RPM, UDF, WIM, XAR and Z.
  • For ZIP and GZIP formats, 7-Zip provides a compression ratio that is 2-10 % better than the ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip
  • Strong AES-256 encryption in 7z and ZIP formats
  • Self-extracting capability for 7z format
  • Integration with Windows Shell
  • Powerful File Manager
  • Powerful command line version
  • Plugin for FAR Manager
  • Localizations for 74 languages

What does all this mean? Well simply put 7-zip technology can UNZIP your compressed files easier and faster than anything you can purchase. I may sound like a commercial for 7-zip ( if the developers are reading this we take Pay-Pal for out advertising space), but it really has helped Tangie and myself be able to work smarter to get all her products compressed and ready to up-load to the Studio.

Here’s a few steps on how easy 7-zip can work for you.

1. Download your file or files i.e. Equestrian Dreaming.
2. Control Click all the Files so they are highlighted.
3.Now right click on the files.
4. 7-zip will be on your drop down menu.
5. Select extract files and wait 30-60 sec.
FYI: It so fast you won’t have time to cruise the net .

You can also compress and email a file all with a few clicks.

Here is a few other zip program sites:
