What process/program is accessing your hard drive madly?

If you are not using your computer or even not “intensively” using it, the hard disk drive LED still flash all time or just stay solid-on. Sometimes you can even hear that the hard drive is grinding. It can still happen even if you have closed all running programs. If you’re using laptop, it’s even worse because the fan will start spinning like mad.

This hidden process/program is slowing down your computer and sometime makes it un-usable.

To find out what hidden process/program is using your hard drive, you can google for some free tool and run it on your computer. You need to be careful what kind of tools you can run on your PC. Install a trust-worthy Antivirus software such as ESet before you install anything.

However, if you are using Windows, you can use the task manager. Start your task manager, click ‘View’ and then ‘Columns’, tick the ‘I/O Read’ and ‘I/O Write’ ticboxes. Click ‘OK’. And then on the task manager, click on ‘Processes’ tab, click on the ‘I/O reads’ heading so that you can see which process/program is using the most of such resources. You can right click on the process and kill it if it is not part of the core processes.

.htaccess to exclude password protected sub folder

In Wordpress installation, the default .htaccess is

Code:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Basically it says if there is a file name or folder name of such, the rewrite rule will ignore it.
However, if you have a sub folder, for example, called subfolder, with another .htaccess within it to password protected that folder, the rewritecond will simply just not work.

Some people say you can put

Code:

RewriteEngine Off

in the .htaccess file within the subfolder. However, the .htaccess file of subfolder will not processed until the one of root folder is processed. That means it will never work.

Some suggests using IP address to protect the folder rather than password. This can only work to an extent if customer got a static IP on their ADSL router.

We found another way definitely work by using sub-domain name. If you setup your server to point the sub-domain directly to that folder, that folder will become root under the sub domain and the .htaccess will not be processed.

Free Wordpress Premium themes

For many people who know what they do, they can have a self-made website by using Wordpress and the widely available themes on the Internet.

Many hosting companies provide Wordpress from web hosting control panel. If you are not sure please email info@sparkcomputing.co.uk for help. Once you have Wordpress installed in your hosting space, you can login to the admin and install themes. You can install the themes in 2 ways:

1. In the admin, click the “Appearance” menu item, click on the “Install Themes” tab, you can search a theme available at wordpress.org by keywords. In the search results, click ‘Install’ link to install the theme

2. In the admin, click the “Appearance” menu item, under the “Install Themes” tab, click “upload", then upload the theme file you downloaded from the Internet. The theme file is a zip file containing various files.

After the theme is installed, you need to activate the theme and you are ready to go.

So popular place to get free wordpress themes:
