If You Want to Tinker, Be a Thinker - Or You'll Turn Your Puter into a Clinker by Mike Smith

We recently received a request for help atrepparttar Puter Tutor Message Board, and realized thatrepparttar 107865 answer torepparttar 107866 question was one that every computer user could benefit from. Atrepparttar 107867 very least, understandingrepparttar 107868 answer could save a LOT of unnecessary grief!

The question is below, butrepparttar 107869 details of allrepparttar 107870 registry editing have been left out for 2 reasons:

1) I do not encourage playing around inrepparttar 107871 registry if you are not experienced and do not know what you are doing.

2) The actual details of what was edited are not important torepparttar 107872 answers and most folks wouldn't understand them anyway. (If you want to seerepparttar 107873 details you can go torepparttar 107874 Puter Tutor Community Message Board and readrepparttar 107875 post.http://pub57.ezboard.com/bputercentral )

So, are you ready? The information below is absolutely critical to avoiding computer disasters!!



Hi, I'm Sara and I was trying to get rid of a sub7 virus but messed up things so I can't get into any of my applications. Here's what I did....

1.Click on Start>Run, type Regedit then hitrepparttar 107876 Enter key.


Now I can't get my freemem, zone alarm pro, or any ofrepparttar 107877 Windows stuff to work. I have Windows ME and when I try to get back intorepparttar 107878 regedit.exe to fix it I get an "the path to this application does not exist" pop-up. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.


Hi Sara,

First off,repparttar 107879 bad news. It looks like you are going to either have to reinstall your OS or go to Safe Mode and see if you can to a previous Restore Pint. You are saving Restore Points, aren't you?

You might try going into "regedit" from Safe Mode but ifrepparttar 107880 registry itself is damaged, you are stuck. One ofrepparttar 107881 most difficult things to get across to folks is thatrepparttar 107882 stupid tech people that write all these fixes think they are dealing with someone that knows what they do. The seem to think that there are no Newbies or inexperienced people onrepparttar 107883 Internet.

The following Rules should precede any instructions that tell you how to do something in "regedit" or before doing anything that will change your Operating System.


1. Do NOT go intorepparttar 107884 Registry unless you know exactly what you are doing. This can leave your Puter inoperable!

2. Before you start playing inrepparttar 107885 Registry, make a backup to a disk or another drive on your Puter so you can restore it if you make a mistake!

New OLAP concept

Written by Intersoft Lab


ContourCube – new OLAP concept


In today’s fast-paced, information-driven economy, organizations heavily rely on real-time business information to make accurate decisions. The number of individuals within an enterprise who have a need to perform more sophisticated analysis is growing. With their ever-increasing requirements for data manipulating tools, end users cannot be already satisfied with flat grids and a fixed set of parameters for query execution. OLAP isrepparttar best technology that empowers users with complete ease in manipulating their data. The very moment you replace your common grid with an OLAP interface users will be able independently to perform various ad-hoc queries, arbitrarily filter data, rotate a table, drill down, get desired summaries, and rank. From users’ standpoint,repparttar 107864 information system equipped with an OLAP-tool gains a new quality, helps not only get information but also summarize and analyze it. Fromrepparttar 107865 developer’s point of view, OLAP is an elegant way to avoid thankless and tedious programming of multiple on-line and printed reports. A traditional transactional system will make it possible both to register business transactions and provide users with immediate answers to questions, such as, what goods have sold best this month, what seasonal fluctuations in sales are, how consumer preferences differ across various regions. The programmatic ContourCube component enables flat grids to be replaced with powerful OLAP-grids and charts at desired parts of your systems and empowers any information system with Business Intelligence capabilities.

Why OLAP client?

There are two common ways to realize OLAP solutions. The first way is implemented through an OLAP Server with calculations being executed on a separate computer,repparttar 107866 second way leverages an OLAP client to perform calculations on a user machine. The OLAP Server requires additional investments and permanent maintenance and does not userepparttar 107867 power of individual PCs. Nevertheless, it enablesrepparttar 107868 huge volume of data to be managed. The OLAP client is cheap and does not require any maintenance though it is capable of manipulating less volume of data. Meanwhile, hardware capabilities are growing consistently and rapidly and today a common personal computer has tremendous capacity while processor providers do not seem intend to fall behind. Concurrently, it’s worth to review accepted concepts and try to guess what may happen tomorrow. May it so turn out that OLAP calculations over general sets of business data become a trivial task? Won’t it happen today? ContourCube can process hundreds of thousand of records on a typical modern PC, but aggregating records, while a SQL query is executed inrepparttar 107869 relational database server, means millions of records. This entirely meets most applications’ requirements.


MOLAP stands for Multidimensional On-Line Analytical Processing and is used for creation of a multidimensional database out of relational or other flat data. Its structure specifically optimized for accomplishing OLAP operations provides users with maximum speed of data manipulating. The drawback ofrepparttar 107870 approach isrepparttar 107871 need forrepparttar 107872 consistent database refreshing. ROLAP is Relational On-Line Analytical Processing. The term ROLAP specifies that calculations are performed while a query acrossrepparttar 107873 relational database or relational Data Warehouse is executed. Among advantages provided by ROLAP are: real time operations, and no need to reload data torepparttar 107874 extra database. Which of these two technologies is better? As each of them has its upsides and downsides it is obvious that both are essential, but each in its own way. If your users may need to trace processes in a real time mode or data volumes for each specific query may not be large you should implement ROLAP. Whereas data volumes may turn out to be enormous and there is no need to support an online core data source, MOLAP is ideally suited. ContourCube allows switching onrepparttar 107875 fly from one technology to another. You can connectrepparttar 107876 component to a relational database and empower users with ability to save data intorepparttar 107877 Contour microcube, a local multidimensional cube, to work in a offline mode, as well as providing other users withrepparttar 107878 microcube or publishing it.
