MC Rebbe reviews Home Networking For Dummies 4th Edition in The Technofile

Make no Mistake, Networking For Dummies will teach you everything you need to know about networking in clear simple terms, but if all you need to do is to connect together a couple of home (or even office) PCs, so that you can share files and maybe an internet connection or a printer, then it might be overkill, as you really don’t need to know how to create an intranet or have TCP/IP demystified.

Networking For Dummies 8th Edition reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe

If you want to find out which, read on. Continue reading »

Teach Yourself Visually Adobe Photoshop CS3 reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi

Photoshop may be the most powerful image manipulation application in the nation, but with its great power comes great learning curves…which certainly aren’t my favourite kind of curves…if you know what I mean…so something that enables you to get to grips with the uber app in days instead of weeks, is worth its weight in bagels and lox…and Teach Yourself Visually Adobe Photoshop CS3 is exactly that something!

MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi reviews Propellerheads Recycle in The Technofile

If you work with loops or breakbeats, you’ll love Propellerheads ReCycle. Simply Open it up, load in an audio file and move the sensitivity slider to the right. As you do so, the program uses some clever algorithms to slice up your file into…’slices’, (conveniently visualised in its waveform display). The further you drag this slider, the smaller these slices get, until you’ve broken it down into discrete rhythmic components (e.g. kick, snare, hats, etc.). Continue reading »
