Mojavi is an open-source MVC (model-view-controller) php framework, licensed under the LGPL. Developing with Mojavi php framework enables you to easily divide your web application into tiers, allowing for independent custom web application development. These applications have been tested on various servers and firewall applications. There are numerous solutions that are available in the market like the Cisco ASA 5505 and the HP Proliant Servers that have set the standards in reliability and security within their field. The solutions and programming field has even grown into the telecommunications field with routers like the Cisco 7910 where small and medium size businesses can have a truw communication architecture that runs over an IP protocol enabling you to locate offices and employees anywhere.

What is Mojavi?

Mojavi is a framework developed in PHP and strongly based on the MVC (model-view-controller) application design paradigm. It can be run a variety of network servers that employ security features that will work with the curent MVC model.

What is MVC?

Model-View-Controller is a design pattern for application development. MVC organizes an application into three separate tiers: one for the model, which represents data and handles business logic, the second for presentation and user input, and the third as a controller, which handles incoming requests and controls application flow.

What are the benefits of MVC?

An application designed around MVC is easier to manage because the application is split into tiers, which allow for independent development. This promotes code reusability by building models, which are reusable throughout the application.

Why create an MVC framework for PHP?

Development of PHP scripts without a preconceived plan to manage them is asking for a headache. Before I started developing Mojavi, there weren’t any frameworks that were designed the way I thought a PHP MVC implementation should be designed.

How is Mojavi licensed?

Mojavi is licensed under the LGPL.

A new laptop bag to stay mobile

Students always have a tough time browsing through the end-less plans provided by broadband service providers, to find a suitable plan that will not gulp too much of their budget, yet help them stay connected to the virtual world faster. The major problem faced by most of the students is that they are unsure about the period of stay at a place. Here are certain things that you must ponder before you get set for the deal.

The first, and the foremost thing that you must consider is the period of stay at a place. This helps you to decide between a contract deal and a non-contract deal. If you are quiet unsure about a full-twelve months stay at a place, then it is always better to skip off the option of twelve months contracts and save yourself from the cancellation fee later. Most Mobile Broadband providers are now offering discounted or free laptops to those that sign up for a 1-2 year contract which could be attractive to man students. So of course you will need a new laptop bag to keep you in style while you are traveling around. But while opting for a non-contract deal, the packages may be more expensive and there could be an activation fee. Besides, you may not get a free modem or a router. On the other hand, if you are going to stay for a period beyond twelve months, some broadband providers offers you student broadband packages.

Another useful option is to choose a mobile broadband option. As long as you have a Mobile USB sticks and USB modems, you can access the internet by plugging these into your laptops. This has become a well-known method of accessing internet these days. Students can use it wherever they go, to the coffee shops, to the students’ house or to home when they go. Another asset with the mobile broadband is the lack of line rental. Also, no unwanted tensions over the cost sharing with your room mates. But, mobile broadband comes with limited download options like 3GB to 5GB.

Do you need an Arizona dui lawyer?

In the state of Arizona, driving under the influence of alcohol or any other intoxicating fumes or drugs is a very serious offence. In fact, Arizona is one of the states with the harshest and strictest enforcements of the dui laws. This is because of the increase in the number of deaths and accidents arising from drunk driving. If you find yourself charged with driving under the influence, contact arizona dui lawyer immediately . Many people view a dui attorney as an unnecessary cause. Well, do not be ignorant. For the law enforcers, if you are caught driving under the influence, to them you are just another number that is to be used as an example of what will befall those who are not compliant with the law. An attorney will help in the initial stages. He or she is supposed to be present when you are being questioned and charged. This is because he or she knows the statements you can make that can be incriminating. In addition to that, the lawyer is supposed to advise you on a plea bargain. This means that the matter can be resolved out of court. This should be handled by a lawyer who has handled such before because a wrong move in this process might leave you in more trouble than you were in to begin with. If the above does not work then the lawyer is supposed to prepare a defence on your behalf and to argue out your case in court. Depending on how well the case is prepared and the evidence is provided, the lawyer may succeed in getting all the charges dropped or in reducing your punishment to the minimum. A tempe dui lawyer is your best shot at getting another chance by winning the case against you.

All legal procedures are quite demanding and you might end up being disappointed and frustrated altogether. Hiring an expert in the field of law will not only save you time but also your energy. In the recent years many people are looking for options to help them make a secure plan for their future in regards to their property. This has also necessitated upgrades in the systems and the protocols that are followed. However, the basic principles still remain. A good probate lawyer should be in a position to clarify how every stage works. As soon as the property owner dies, the first and most important step is to make the transfer of ownership to the beneficiary without any hitches. This can be a very smooth process as long as there is not one who challenges the will. However, should there be a person that wishes to contest the will, the process becomes quite strenuous and takes time. The sensitivity of these matters requires a lot of professionalism so as to make the whole process les painful. There are so many families that are suffering since there was no will left behind. In such a case, the matter is handled by the probate court and every effort is made to ensure fair distribution of the property left by any deceased person. In most cases all the dependants will be considered as well as their dependency level. A good arizona probate attorney will advise you based on previous experiences on the best way to ensure that your family is secure. A will is a legal and binding document and you need to be well advised before drafting one. There are some laws that govern alterations to the will and this are also areas that you should ask about. It is important to get a good lawyer that you will have confidence in.

What Type of Broadband Do You Need?

0 comments

Posted on 2nd April 2014 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

Choosing a new broadband package can be a bit of a minefield. You’re being told by one provider that you should not compromise on your download speed, whilst another provider is making it clear that you need an unlimited usage package. Let’s face it most of us aren’t experts in the area so it is very easy to get confused or carried away with a great offer. However this may result in you being stuck with a service that does not fulfil your requirements.

With this in mind, what factors do we need to be considering before we make a decision?

 

What do you use the internet for?

Before you can really come to any sort of informed decision about the most suitable broadband package you must consider how much you use the internet, and what you use it for.  Broadly speaking many internet users will fall into one of three categories; light, medium or heavy users.

A light internet user would not use the internet on a daily basis. For example, it would be used to check emails a few times a week or briefly surf the web. This type of user will be able to get away with one of the cheaper packages on the market. The monthly usage limit shouldn’t be too much of a problem (the lowest is usually around 2GB). A light user may find it easier to secure a 12 month contract.

Medium users may spend, on average, a couple of hours online each day. They will be sending and receiving emails, using social networking sites, downloading music or podcasts and streaming videos. If you are a medium user you are likely to need at least 10GB monthly usage. In terms of speed you would be comfortable with an up to 8Mbps package although, depending on your area, you may actually get between 2Mbps-8Mbps. You can check this by using an online broadband speed test.

A heavy broadband user would be using the internet for upwards of 4-5 hours per day. Downloading movies or streaming TV shows is a regular occurrence, whilst also uploading photos or music to social networking sites. Heavy users may also spend a lot of time playing online games, which can result in you flying over your usage limit. If you fall into the heavy user bracket then you will want to be looking at the higher end of the download speeds. Perhaps it may be advisable to check out some of the fibre optic broadband providers as these generally provide faster download speeds. You would also be looking to go for an unlimited usage package.

It is also important to consider the amount of people who will be using the internet service. For instance, a family with 3 teenagers are likely to be using the internet more than a person living on their own and the download limits may have to be increased or decreased accordingly.

 

How much do you want to pay?

This can be a significant factor in which broadband service you eventually opt for. It may also be decisive in regards to what type of internet user you can realistically be. If you’re willing to spend £30 per month on a fast, high usage broadband package then you are going to get a better service than if you had a £15 per month budget. It is important you remember that there are almost always additional fees for exceeding your broadband usage allowance. These fees will usually range from £5-£10 (depending on how many GB you go over) so it may end up costing you more to get the cheaper package!

 

Do you want a Broadband, TV and Phone package?

Lots of people find it easier to combine their broadband, TV and phone packages. One of the advantages to this is that it can reduce the hassle of having to setup all three services individually and it makes it easier to renew your services at the end of the contract. There are also lots of offers for the bundle packages but you must remember; just because it’s a good offer, it doesn’t mean that it will be the ideal fit for you.

Guard against hard drive failure

Posted on 2nd April 2014 by Jeff Rogers in Technology

I was just reading an article that stated each year there are millions of files, pictures, and important documents lost each year due to hardware failures and malicious viruses on consumers PCs. It was even more astonishing that most people that they polled for the story had never thought of backing up their data or pictures or worse yet did not know how. In some cases it can be a complicated task to back up the pictures and documents that you want so many people will just leave it alone. It is said that it is not “if” your hard drive will fail it is “when” it will fail.

There are now solutions where you can create an online backup of your files for as little as $4.95 per month which includes up to 150 GB of space. They currently offer the opportunity to store up to 5GB for free to see what you get with their service. I created an account to give it a spin and it took a total of about 5 minutes to set up the account and download the installer to then start my backup. If you can drag and drop you can store and save your data. The best part is that you are creating backups that can be share with up to five other computers so that if you have multiple computers and laptops you can keep them all up to date.They have also included the option to be able backup your iPhone or Droid contacts which is a huge feature for many of us that own one of these smartphones. The other benefit is that you are not creating multiple CD/DVD’s which may get lost or scratched and then making your backups unusable. So if you are one who has never created a backup of your favorite photos or documents give them a try and take advantage of the free account and see for yourself.

User Authentication for Mojavi

0 comments

Posted on 1st April 2014 by Jeff Rogers in Mojavi Project

Mojavi provides two levels of security to control access to actions: the first requires the user to be logged in, the seconds checks for a specific privilege. There are various drivers that you may need on your PC if your are planning working in offline PHP mode in order to have the translations from the source code to the operational values to work.

Basic Authentication

For basic authentication, the following three methods are of importance:

User::setAuthenticated()
User::isAuthenticated()
Action::isSecure()

To implement an action that only logged in users can access, simply overwrite the Action::isSecure() method in your action:

function isSecure()
{
    return true;
}

This will instruct the controller to check $user->isAuthenticated(). If this method returns false, the request will be redirected to the AUTH_MODULE/AUTH_ACTION defined in the configuration file (default is Default/Login/drivers).

You can implement the Default/Login Action to call $user->setAuthenticated(TRUE) if a valid username and password was entered.

Privileges

Privileges are used to differentiate between logged in users. The following methods are important:

User::hasPrivilege()
User::addPrivilege()
Action::getPrivilege()

In addition to Action:isSecure() also overwrite the Action::getPrivilege() method in your action:

function isSecure()
{
    return true;
}

function getPrivilege()
{
    return array('ADMIN');
}

The controller will check if the user has the specified privilege and redirect to the login module/action if this is not the case.

The User::addPrivilege() method can be used to grant a user a certain privilege.

Please have a look at the PrivilegeUser class for more information. You will also want to make sure that any Windows Vista Drivers are up to date on your PC side to help rule out any coding errors due to Java or PHP errors. This tutorial includes a good example of user authentication in action.

If you are in the business of manufacturing products and part of that process includes fluid mixing then finding the right industrial mixer can not only save you time, but save you money. Not all mixers are designed the same and we have come across a great graphic to show a simple 4 step process that can help you determine the type of mixer and blade to be used depending on the type of mixing needed to be done. In order to maintain consistent quality and improving efficiency having a solution that has been developed from the ground up rather than just be fitted from a previous design can make all the difference in the world. There are numerous impellers that can be used for your particular situation and depending on the application having the right blades will only prove beneficial to your overall project.
