2 Simple Ways to Save a Webpage

There are two simple ways by which you can save webpages as a single files. One of them is to save it as a PDF or a .mth/.mhtml file.

Before we proceed, it must be pointed out that while they will not look exactly as the webpage, they do come pretty close. Also, what must be kept in mind is that you’ll have lesser reading options when it comes to latter type of file as opposed to the PDF format.

Now, both these techniques will work in all popular browsers such as Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer.

In particular, Chrome makes this task very simple where you have to hit Ctrl+P with the particular page loaded. Also, click ‘Change’ in the Destination section where you will find the Save as PDF option along with a list of printers.

As for Internet Explorer and Firefox, you can still pull the print menu but the only problem is that you don’t have a Save to PDF option. However, this can solved by getting a print-to-PDF program that will interface with Windows as a print driver. While there are a few options available, the Bullzip PDF Printer is free and quick to download.

Now for the MIME HTML (mhtml) format, Internet Explorer allows you to save it in this format with a simple Ctrl+S where you select .mht from the Save-as-Type pulldown menu.

Since Firefox and Chrome does not support this format, Firefox users can install the Mozilla Archive Format along with Faithful Save and MHT.

For Chrome, type “chrome://flags/” and hit Enter in the browser address field. Look for the option “Save as MHTML”. Now, hit Ctrl+S and select the .mht or mhtml format from the “Save as type” menu.

How you Protect Yourself When Browsing the Web

With the Heartbleed vulnerability that went viral recently, it’s clear that one will never achieve 100-percent security or privacy.

However, the most plausible solution to this will be locking down your internet access completely so as to prevent any breach possible.

Which brings us to the topic of improving the privacy of your browsing. Most browsers offer privacy in the form of a mode that prevents your browsing to be tracked. In Chrome it is the incognito mode, Internet Explorer has InPrivate Browsing and Firefox has Private Windows.

But not only will your ISP know what you are surfing but so will the sites themselves as they can track your router’s IP address.

You can add an additional layer of security by installing add-ins such as MaskMe and Ghostery that will keep you protected from spies of all kinds. The former add-ins can provide you with both disposable email addresses as well as temporary credit cards too.

There are a couple of caveats with the latter, and which involves the display of pop-ups as well as the company taking money from advertisers for their business, which is a conflict of interest.

That said, these solutions will still allow website to view your IP address while your ISP will continue to track what websites you’ve visited too.

If you want to hide your IP address, then a VPN is advisable but most of all, the Tor Browser will help you stay safe since it routes its signal through a number of servers so people do not know where you are coming from.

It’s probably the safest option available now.

Changes in Timesheets Over the Years

If you work in an office in today’s business world, chances are that you fill in some sort of timesheet for your payroll or human resources department.  While the concept of the timesheet was originally used by employers solely for payroll purposes, their scope has drastically increased over the years, thanks in part to the ease of organizing information in the digital age.  Many companies use timesheet software that is capable of recording a wide range of data.  Some companies keep track of the starting and ending times for certain tasks their employees perform.  Others simply record the duration.  Many times, more than simple numbers are taken into consideration.  A timesheet may include notes that detail the specific tasks accomplished during a time period or a project.  The information recorded in time and attendance software can be utilized for payroll, project management, and client billing purposes.

Whether a business uses an Internet or intranet-based timesheet solution, the digitization of the information allows for it to be sorted and processed far more quickly and easily than it would if it were simply recorded on paper.  While time and attendance numbers are fairly easy to deal with by hand, project management numbers and the relationships between them can be a lot more complicated.  The right software can help you calculate and view the important numbers in mere moments.  Some programs even offer options of sending you an alert when certain numbers fall below a preprogrammed level or standard, allowing you to deal with problems the instant they crop up.

If you have had difficulties with project management in the past, perhaps it’s time for you to take a look at the latest generation of timekeeping software solutions.  Offering more than mere payroll support, these programs can revolutionize your corporate strategy and may even change the way you do business.
