  1. 1. Website_Design_Program : Part IThe Swing Of The Pendulum Of Your Grandfather ClockHow well do you know your grandfather clock? Knowing how your tall clock works will makeit easier for you. Its like having your husband around all the time.How well do you know your grandfather clock?Everyday you glance admiringly at your new 7-foot tall clock. It has brightened up your livingroom, making the room homier. It was the perfect touch. You never had this so good whendoing your own interior decorating.But do you know everything about your clock? If you can point out the pendulum bob andthe cable pulleys, then you know something. If you cant tell the difference, its time to skimthrough the manual of your grandfather clock.The swing of the pendulumIf you think your time counter is just an accessory to be admired, youre dead wrong. Thistype of clock tells the time accurately and keeps time within a minute per month. The gearsinside the clock are controlled by the swinging pendulum year in and year out and ofcourse will wear and tear without proper care.The pendulum (made from brass and steel) of your clock is suspended from secure cables,and moves back and forth influenced by gravity. This regulates the clock and alerts thesystem to release the power of the right rate. The longer or shorter the pendulum is, theslower or faster the swing.The swinging pendulum is counting time. This is complemented by mechanical systems ofgears, levers, spring, and catches. The movement of the mechanical levers, wheels andgears are controlled to calculate the accurate tick of the second, minute, and hour hands.You can adjust the swing of the pendulum slower or faster by just adjusting the ball of thependulum slightly.ChimesAt the hour, the spring driven hammers will strike the tubular bells. Some grandfather clockswill allow for the selection of melodies. If your clock has three melodies, you can change themelody when the minute hand is set in the safe time area.When the chimes stop, you can move the minute hand counterclockwise. If there is someresistance, better call the supplier to do the job for you. Never attempt to touch the chimelever when the clock is chiming or you will damage the chime system. You can follow theillustrated manual that came with your grandfather clock.
  2. 2. WeightsObserve that there are three weights in the case of your grandfather clock. The left powersthe hour strike, the center is for time, and the right weight is for the melody.These weights, attached to a chain or a cable, should be raised every 7 days or the clockwill stop. For cable driven weights, a crank will be available. For chain driven weights, theloose end of the chain is pulled down.There are more things to learn to appreciate how the system inside works. In time, youll becomfortable with your clock. In the meantime, dont mess with your grandfather clock, justlet the pendulum swing.Hiring a web designer to come up with the custom solution that you need can set you backa few thousand bucks. But you can do the whole thing yourself and make it drag and dropsimple for mere pennies with a tool like Breezy Websites.

For the Tablet PC is truly one of the most innovativeand useful products that is just now starting to gain major traction. These machines, whichare powered by a specially tweaked version of the Windows XP operating system, allowusers to scribble notes on a screen with a pen-like stylus, turning handwriting or blockprinting into whats called digital ink.Although Tablet PCs have been on the market for a few years now, much of the public hasbeen unexposed to them. Thats about to change. Tablet PCs are now showing up on TVcommercials, in magazine and newspaper ads and being exuberantly talked about throughword of mouth. Maybe its time for you to consider one.Some Tablets are slate models only. That means there is no keyboard, just the screen. You

Flip the screen up and it looks and works like a notebook computer, with akeyboard, CD/DVD slot, track pad and the like. But swivel the screen around and down overthe keyboard and its a slate.All of the big computer makers produce Tablet PC models: Dell, Gateway, Toshiba, Lenovo(IBM), Fujitsu and others. There are a couple of Tablet-only makers, too, like MotionComputing and Rugged Computers. Even Apple Computer with its fabled Macintosh line isrumored to be close to developing a Tablet version.The cost of a Tablet depends on how yoy equip it. I suggest at least 1GB of memory/ And ifa CD/DVD drive isnt included, either as a built-in internal option or as an external device,make sure you order one. Wi-Fi and BlueTooth is standard on most Tablets.But you can figure spending around $2,000 for a full-featured model.Over the past couple of years, Tablets have sold fairly well in what are known as verticalmarkets, among niche interest groups like students (great for note-taking and recordinglectures), medical professionals (for keeping track of patient records) and salespeople (forforms and order-taking). Indeed, some schools are now giving Tablet PCs to their students,thats how great they are as educational tools.But now that the momentum has built up, most observers are convinced the real market ismuch larger ... and largely untapped, if youll excuse the pun.The Tablet PC does everything a regular computer does. It has a complete Windows XPoperating system and can run all of the normal programs and applications consumers areused to on their desktops and laptops. The big difference is that with a Tablet PC, you canalso use that electronic stylus to run many programs, taking notes by hand or tapping on theindividual letters of an on-screen keyboard representation to type.Handwriting can be converted to type with just a tap of the stylus, though, obviously, theneater you write or print, the more accurate will be the conversion into type.Ive been a a tablet user for several years and, truthfully, I seldom convert handwritten noteson the Tablet. I dont need to. I can read my own notes just fine. And theres somethingsatisfyingly personal about seeing my scribbes on a computer screen. Its sort of theultimate in customization.While a Tablet does everything a regular computer does, they have the added advantage ofsome special tablet-only software enhancements. I bought a $39 add-on to the Outlookprogram that lets me use digital ink to enter calendar, to-do, journal and contact info. And a$99 program called PlanPlus from Franklin Covey puts the equivalent of a Franklin Planneron my Tablet. Ive fallen in love with this application.Then theres Microsoft OneNote, which comes bundled on many of the Tablets sold today orcan be purchased separately for $99. OneNote I believe, is the most amazingly usefulapplication for any platform I have ever tried.
  4. 4. Besides the digital ink note-taking and organizational features, OneNote uses the built inmicrophone on the Tablet to record meetings, lectures, interviews, whatever you want. Asyou take notes of a presentation and hear something thats important, make a star orexclamation mark next to someones words that youve jotted down, just as you do with penand paper notes. Afterwards, as you review the notes, you can tap on the special mark youmade to hear the actual recording of the subject as the presenter spoke the information.No matter how much I use OneNote, it blows me away every time.If youre thinking about a new laptop and if note-taking is a part of your life, a tablet shouldbe at the top of your shopping list.Its that handy.Is a Tablet PC right for you?Obviously, only you can answer that. But its been my esperience as a longtime road warriorwho has used all sorts of laptops, that the Tablet PC offers so many more features and somuch more convenience than a standard laptop that I would never go back.I bet you will feel the same.Hiring a web designer to come up with the custom solution that you need can set you backa few thousand bucks.
