Adobe Keeps Quiet About TWAIN DriversNo updates for the 32-bit TWAIN scanner… Adobe released 32 and 64 bit versions of Photoshop CS6 but forgot to mention it wouldn’t work with most scanners out of the box. By leaving in the 32 bit version of Photoshop on the installation DVD they said to many users to use that version instead… The main problem is the TWAIN driver is missing from the installation DVD.
TWAIN Driver for 64 Bit Operating System?
Ron AKA wrote: My investigation of the issue with Epson has kind of come to a dead end. They say that nobody has bothered to write a 64 bit TWAIN driver. And that is the reason it does not work. They blame Adobe and Microsoft, but it seems to me that Epson has to share some responsibility too.The lack of a driver isn’t the real issue, it’s the fact that the industry group who came up with the TWAIN standard never updated it for use in a 64-bit environment. The WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) standard is for 64-bit software and I guess the TWAIN group figured there wasn’t any reason to re-invent the wheel. So the software ecosystem simply doesn’t exist for 64-bit TWAIN. There’s no point in Epson writing a 64-bit TWAIN driver. There is no standard for it and there’s no other 64-bit software that would be able to interface with it. If you want to do the stuff that TWAIN did in a 64-bit environment (i.e, scan directly into image processing software such as PhotoShop), WIA is the technology to use. I personally wasn’t satisfied with the WIA interfaces. So I ended up just using the scan-to-file utility that came with my Epson scanner. I open the scanned files with the software I use now (primarily Photoshop).
Trackback LinksTrackback links are one of four types of linkback methods. They allow website companies or authors to request notification when somebody links to one of their documents. They enable them to keep track of who is linking to their articles. Some weblog software and content management systems, such as SilverStripe, WordPress, Drupal, and Movable Type, support automatic pingbacks. Pingbacks allow links in a published article to ping when published. Pingbacks are automated and don’t send any content. The term trackback is for any kind of linkback.
How To Send A TrackbackEach blogging software system handles trackbacks differently. Bloggers can also choose to switch them off or require every one be approved before going live, so don’t be surprised when you send a trackback and it doesn’t show up, it may have nothing to do with you. Some websites will trackback automatically, or attempt to, especially if they are the same format. For example a WordPress blog trackbacking a WordPress blog. In that case as long as you include a link to the other blog’s post your blog will attempt a trackback, sometimes called a pingback. Usually you have to manually enter a trackback URI into the blog entry you are creating. You can find the URI at the end of most blog posts (take a look at your blog posts for the term Trackback URI or similar). By the way –URL = Uniform Resource Locator, a fancy name for ‘Link’URI = Uniform Resource Identifier, another fancy name for ‘Link’ I use WordPress and for each blog post I make there is a trackback input box section for entering trackback URIs. I copy and paste the trackback URI from the blog entry I want to link to and when I click publish my blog will send the trackback. My blog will also confirm when a trackback has been sent after publishing my post.
How To Get TrafficIf you follow someone else’s post you are leaving a link that points back to your blog. Someone who reads the article may click through from the link and visit your blog. In some cases, if they are not using the “nofollow” tag, you get some PageRank juice (not sure what PageRank is? Read this short introduction – https://www.entrepreneurs-journey.com/275/pagerank-explained/) which will help your search engine rankings.
What Does “nofollow” Mean?The “nofollow” tag is a line of code that some blogging systems, such as WordPress, implement automatically. The tag is added to every link left in comments and trackbacks so the search engines don’t follow the link (humans however view it like a standard link so can follow it like normal). Its supposed purpose is to stop people spamming blog comments purely for links but it really doesn’t work that well as a deterrent.
Send Trackbacks For TrafficTrackbacks are good because they bring traffic to your site when you trackback other blogs. Being the “victim” of a trackback is also good because it means another blogger has read your blog and deemed something you wrote worthy of including in their blog. There is a good chance if they trackbacked you that they also made a direct link to your blog too. This helps your social proofing because it provides evidence that other people are reading and responding to your blog articles. However the real power of trackbacking is an awareness building tool to get the attention of other bloggers. When you first start blogging not many people will know your blog exists. By trackbacking other bloggers you demonstrate interest in their content which is a surefire way to make them interested in you and your blog. It’s very likely that the blogger you trackbacked will follow the link and see what your site is all about. If you have been following my advice and have written some pillar articles your new visitor will like what they see, very likely subscribe to your blog and if you are lucky may even trackback you or mention your blog in a future entry on their blog. If nothing else, by trackbacking a blogger you will forever occupy some of their mind-space, which in the future may open up all kinds of doors and opportunities for traffic.

Your Current SearchIf you are looking for a certain thing and can’t find it, use our menu on the right side of this site, or try our search engine :)
NavigationIf a navigation bar is the roadmap to a website, it’s probably best to show every page there, right? That way people are sure to find what they need… Actually, not so much. Many people take the “more is more” approach to their top (or side) navigation menu—the logic being that if visitors need to find something, at least they’ll be able to find it in the main menu. The thing is, navigation menus work best when they are short and sweet. There’s a few reasons for this:
- User experience: A short menu is easier and faster for people to read through—if they have to hunt through lots of options, they are more likely to bounce.
- Search engine optimization (SEO): A short, clear menu makes it easier for search engines to navigate, understand, and index your site.
- Design: Most website templates are designed with one line of navigation in mind. Adding more than that can make your navigation look crowded, hard to read, and in some cases “break” the style of your website.
Does the navigation bar need help?One way to assess a website is to simply count the number of menu items in the navigation. A good rule of thumb is to keep it to no more than seven choices. Any more than that, and you may be stretching your readers’ attention spans. Another sign is if you see the navigation breaking onto two lines. If this is happens, it’s a good idea to reconsider the presentation of pages.
There are many ways to study English, but many students ask which is the most effective. Unfortunately, I don’t think there is a single answer that is right for every student. However… I can certainly give advice.

Study English – Tips for SuccessHere are some study for success to help you as you study English.
- Study English I: Activating Your VocabularyActivate your vocabulary by thinking or speaking briefly about the subject you are about to work on. For example, if you are going to study English on topics that focuses on vacations, take a moment to think about your last vacation, what you did, what you enjoyed, etc. This simple exercise will help your brain warm-up to vocabulary that you are likely to encounter as you study English about this particular subject.
- Study English II: Activating Your GrammarActivate your grammar by thinking about the general grammar area before you begin to study. For example, if you are going to study English grammar focusing on the past, stop to think about what you did last weekend, where you went, etc. to help activate what you already understand about using the past. As with activating vocabulary, you’ll help your brain bring up what it knows about the past simple in an easy way before you begin to focus on studying English grammar in detail.
- Study English III: Singing a SongBefore class begins, or before you sit down to study English sing a song in English to yourself. Make sure to use a song that you understand and know very well. This short and fun exercise will help your brain focus on the English language in a relaxing manner. It’s important to be relaxed when you study English! Singing a song also helps activate the creative side of your brain which can help you come up with more examples as your practice conversation or do some creative writing.
- Study English IV: Typing a Short Paragraph in EnglishIf you going to study English at your desk, begin by typing a simple paragraph in English. You can type about your day, your hobbies, your friends, etc. Anything will do. Typing helps activate the kinetic part of your brain that helps improve learning through physical activity. I also recommend typing while you study your English grammar. This will help solidify your knowledge with movement.
- Study English V: A Thousand Words …As the saying goes in English: A picture is worth a thousand words. Help activate the creative side of your brain by trying to describe a photo or other image. You can combine use this also to activate your vocabulary by choosing a picture that has something to do with the subject your are going to study in English.
- Study English Every DayIt’s important to study English every day. However, don’t exaggerate! Study for thirty minutes every day instead of two hours once a week. Short, steady practice is much better for learning than long periods on an irregular basis. This habit of studying English every day will help keep English in your brain fresh.
- Study English Using Different Methods to LearnDon’t just use one way to study English. Use a variety of methods which will help all the parts of your brain (multiple intelligences) help you. For example, if you are learning new vocabulary, create a word map, describe a picture, make a list and study that, type out the words five times. All of these methods together help to reinforce your learning.
- Study English by Finding some FriendsThere is nothing like having a few friends to study English together. You can practice the exercises together, have conversations together (in English!), and, as you study English together, help each other with exercises you may not understand.
- Study English by Choosing Topics that Interest YouOne of the most important things to do is to study English using topics that you like. This will help motivate you because you will also be learning about a topic you find interesting while you study English.
