I found the article "Testing and tweaking


broadband" in your March imue to be very
interesting, but as with many others I' ve seen
on the subject, it missed an important component that should be part of any dedsion.
I travel occasionally with my notebook
computer and need a dial-up connection in
the hotel. When I checked a few months ago
Sympatico offered 10 hours of free dial-up
service across Canada, or at least up to the

B.C. border. The OHome service required

signing up for a $15 per month service with

a per-minute connection charge.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. The Massachusetts

materials for nearly all its courses freely avail

The institution said the Web site for the proj-

ect, MIT OpenCoumeW


are, will include material
such as lecture notes, course outlines, reading
listsand assignments foreach course.
Overthe nextdecade,the projectexpects to
provide materials for more than 2,000 coumes

ProfessorSteven Lerman, NIT faculty chair,

MIT said the project will begin as a large

senri
ces needed to supportthe endeavor,as weg
as pr

facult

By late 2003, materials for more than 500
coumesare expected to be available on the site.
Among thebenefits NIT staffem see forthe
project are that inslitutions worldwide could

back of the machine. It's slightly wider than


the DI-704 (reviewed last month), and has
one less Ethernet jack, but its wireless capability adds that lost connectivity back, plus
some. If we have a major complaint about
the machine, it's that the Ethernet jacks for
WAN and LAN connectivity all stick out of
the font of the box, which isn't the most elegant solution. It's a functional and powerful
device, however, so this is mostly a minor

issue in the grand


scheme.
As with the Dl-704, the Dl-713 comes
with a lot of powerful features, induding full

control over access


to and Rom the device,
induding firewall capabilities, and tunneling

for virtual private networking. The firmware


on the box is very easy to use, making it a
snap to set up yow connection to the outside

60 MAY 2001 1HE COMPUTER


PAPER BC EDITION wwwconadscomputescom

(Default) Postscript Driver tucked away


in
the tut(lit(et>drivers>win95&98t subdirectory. You need that additional virtual printer to
work with WordPerfect.
Check the version before installing it. The
version on my CD-ROM is 4.2.4. If that's the
one you have, it has a bad habit of dropping
the endings from words randomly throughout the document for example,
"cooling
tow er."
tower" could b ecome "cooli
The newer drivers seem to have overcome
that problem. Go to the Adobe Web site
(blip://www.adobe.rom) and download version
4.3 or anything newer if they have it.
To makea PDF from WordPerfert,you can
select this Postscript driver as your printer. It
knows what to do next.
When you print to Acrobat, the disk drive
comes to life and the Adobe Assistant icon
appearsin the Windows taskbar tray.When
it's finished, the Reader comes up and displays your document. It's quite interesting to

look closely at that display.


Certain standard fonts are considered as
being present on all Windows and Mac systems and when you use one of them, they
will be printed as text.
Many other fonts aren't considered as
standardand they areconverted to an image,
a picture of the font. It takes longer to print

graphicsthan texton screen and ifyou have


a lot of non-standard fonts, the screen write

can be quite slow.

This tends to force you, whether you like it


or not, to keep to Times New Roman and
Ariel for the main text.
The graphics are based on a 72-dpi screen
resolution rather than a 300- or 600-dpi
printer resolution. Your recipients will be
able to print a good sharp image on a 600 dpi
laser printer and if the graphics contain any
cross-hatching, i t w i l l l oo k l i k e crosshatching.
I' ve never found a sinrple way to extract a
high-quality graphic image from a PDF 6le.
It always ends up as a low-resolution graphic. In a way, that protects you from anyone
who wants to use your 6gures for their own

purposes.
Adobe's free distribution policy for the
(trader has made the PDF a universal standard for sending manuals, reports, and technical literature.
If you decide to make and distribute your
own PDfs, you don't have to worry about
whether your recipients will be able to open
and read your files. Most people have the

Reader installed on their PC and will be able


to seewhat you prepared exactly asyou prepared it.
I include PDF documents on my Web site,
readyfor anyone in the world to read. How
do I handle European and North American

paper sizes?

on a topic or for HP to oer its own experts
that BizTown participants can consult with.

"We have a panel of experts [on topicsj


ranging from technology, marketing, and
starting up a business," adds HP's Allan." You
can ask them how to market a business on a

HP hopes the portal will give it some
insight into the concerns and issues facing
small to mid-size operations in Canada. To
that end, it is creating an advisory council of
19 business owners, directors, and officers
from companies with five to 99 employees.
"The intent is to create a group of creative,
forward-thinking individuals with national
representation that will be able to help guide
us in setting our investments, resources, and
strategies to better cater to their needs."
HP is currently recruiting participants for
the advisory council.Members are asked to
commit to the council which will meet
informally via the Internet for a ninemonth term.
Those interested in joining the advisory
council need to send a )00-word essay outlining their skills and ezpertise. Details of the

New fibre-optic network for Alberta

esid
ents between Edmonton and Grande Prairi
e,rkita., may soon have a greater choice of
high-speed Internet service praviders (ISPs), thanks to an enterprising network builder. In
late March. Total Telcom Inc. said its Optronic network is "open for broadband business."
Total buiit this fibre-optic snake with its subsidiary, Total Telcom Fiber Inc.
Until now,"the only real option (for broadband service) was through Talus," said Craig Baker,
Total's executive vice-president, duriing a telephone interview. "But... in remote areas it hasn' t
been really good service."
Like many telecommunications firms offering high-speed senrice, Talus had a problem with
reach," Craig said.
Broadband via phone lines (AOSL) are as
only
good as a customer's distance to the central
oflice. If the customer is more than 5 km away from the central of)ie, the Internet connection
speed is seriously hindered.
Craig said Total has done away with this trouble. The company installed OC-12 electronics
(from Lucent Technologies inc.) capable of cranking zippy service to 336 Ti
more
lines
than
enough for Total's prospective clients.
"The capacity of these fi
bres are scalable and can be increased substantially as customer
demand dictates," reads a Total press release.
ISPs.cable companies and other data carriers count as Total's customer base.Once the network creator completes its deals with these people (Craig said Total is in negotiations) the
inhabitants af Grande Prairie could have a wider choice of high-speed providers.
Thismight be good news forthe rity.It'sgoing "cyber" these days with an initiative to bring
universal interactive access to data and information" within its walls, according to the municipality's Web site.
Totalsaysthis network could bring in as much as 5500,000-per-month,so long as everything
goes according to plan. Craig said the company's looking for carriers to bring the fibre to residuum' homes.

Duron customers will probably be more

Again, because the two Durons use the

Keep in mind that the bus speed has
droppedfrom 266 MHz to 200 MHz, and the

RT Keilh SchenDUi-Roberts
fyou create dynamiWeb sites,chancesare
you' ve heard of PHP. Like ASP, JSP and
Coldfusion, it is a language that allows
Webmastersto embed processing and input
tasks directly into Web pages, instead of
througha CGI scri
pt.
What makes PHP diff
erent from the other
optionsisthatit is both open-source and crossplatform compatible.

O'REfUY'

In terms of PHP fundamentals,you can't get


much moreondse than this. Written by the
creator of PHP,
Rasmus Lerdorf, this slim volume
outl
ines the basic syntax and structure of PHP,
and includes a mini-tutorial on using it.
This is fogowed by an extensive listing of
standard PHP functions, accompanied by bri
ef
descriptions of how they work.
Unfortunately, there are several knocks
againstthis book.It wa s published prior to the
release of PHP4,the most recent version of PHP,
so it is not as up-to-date as it could be.
Whileit would have added some bulk,the
inclusion of a line or two of sample code after a
description (some descriptions for the functions
are in fact shorter than the functions themselves) would make this text much more usefuL
However,the worst part of the book is that
thereis no table of contents,and moredamnIflg
no olden.
Thisbegs the question ofhow handy this slim
volume would be since it is hard to find the
function you are trying to look up.
In short, this is an OR reference for someone
already famibar with programming fundamentals.However,ifyou have a good Internet connection, you will likely get more out of the full
manualthan can be found athsp//www.php.nei.
Look for a more comprehensive PHP book
from O'ReiRy later this year. IJ
