Exploring Car Detailing Perth

Category : Car Detailing

Then it is  time  that  you  got  introduced  to  the  system  known  as car  detailing  Perth. Wanting to have a car, which is clean and shiny, may be your ultimate goal, but getting it clean without some amount of professional tact will only take you and your car so far. Mud, dust and grease  are not exactly friendly with the idea of easy cleaning, therefore only car detailing in Perth can truly help your case. Moreover, simply vacuuming the interiors of your cars will help get rid of only that is seen, but is definitely not thorough enough.

Therefore, you and your car need a system whereby a thorough cleaning process can be   run,   without   scratching   the   subtle   paint   of   the   exterior   and  ruining   the   soft accessories  of  the  interior.  That  is  why,  washers  which  use  mobile  steam  pressure  is usually preferred to do the job. That is also the sole reason why car detailing is so dear to your pockets. The technology is used both for the interior and exterior of the car and the results show distinctly after finishing.

The  usual  system  of  car  detailing  accessories  is  portable.  Moreover,  you  can  actually choose the kind of pressure you want to employ in order to get rid of the usual dirt and grease.  Tougher  spots  like  mud,  which  has  hardened,  sap  of  the  trees  and  oil  take considerably higher amount of pressures to work well upon. The sleek and considerably soft  interiors  need  a  lesser  amount  of  pressure  in  order  to  get  similar  results,  without apparent damage.

Auto  detailing  Perth has been doing the rounds for quite some time.  In  many  ways the modern system of car detailing is way better than the conventional  cleaners which used dry steam and of course the old system of pressure washers. The whole system is any  day  better  than  what  the  usual  soap  water, upright vacuums  and  hose  used  to  do  to  your car.

After all these apartments provide the most luxurious of accommodation options at a much cheaper rate than the luxury hotels.

But, if calculated according to the number of member accommodating within the rate, it comes to down much cheaper an amount to pay. Apartments are booked as a whole.

HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA

Category : Travel and Tourism

Introduction

California is the most populous state in the United States. Its state capital is Sacramento.
For about 13,000-15,000 years, over 100 native tribes and bands lived in the present day California. There were about 100,000-300,000 Native Americans living there, which is about 33% of the entire Native American population that was in the United States. They survived in the forests by hunting and gathering, using fire in a regulated manner to avoid burning down the forests.

First Europeans

In the middle of the 16th century, European troops from Spain and England explored the Pacific Coast of California. The incentives for the exploration were stories of the existence of very wealthy cities along the California coast and a Northwest Passage that would be a significantly shorter route to the Indies.

Joao Rodrigues Cabrilho was the first explorer to venture into the California coast. He unfortunately suffered a severe injury that led to gangrene. He died in 1543. His party returned about 3 months after his death, disheartened at having found neither wealth nor passage. They thus lost interest in California. The Indians they had come across were living very simple lives with no sophistication. Even the homes they lived in were simplistic. Some tribes were fishing and trading using canoes.

California has not always been agriculturally productive. During that period, crops needed irrigation to thrive. The Indians solely depended on hunting and gathering without practising any agriculture. Acorns were a popular staple as they were available in plenty. They were dried and ground then used to cook a mush.

Spanish trading route

This was developed for the trading of gold and silver for goods and spices from Asia. The passage connected the Philippines and Mexico. The trade was profitable and was kept up for about 200 years.

Spanish Colonization

This happened in 1769-1821. California was however isolated, lacked large tribes or agriculture, and had acorns as the staple food. This made it an unappealing prospect for potential colonists to set up their missions.

Inadequate food supplies

There was severe food shortage at the beginning of 1770. This was eased by San Antonio, a sailing ship that came in with relief food.

Gold Rush

This happened between 1848 and 1855. A lot of people, both Americans and foreigners, flocked into California in search of gold. The settling of miners around different mines led to development of different amenities. More towns were also built, and they became occupied very fast. Agriculture also developed to meet the food demands of the growing population. The rush led to pushing of Native Americans off their lands and negative impacts on the environment.

Transport

Transport too needed to be developed. Horses and horse and mule drawn wagons gave way to horse cars which used a rail system. These were more efficient and could carry bigger loads. The cable car was invented next. This was replaced by electric streetcars.

California has continually developed over time to one of the largest states.

USA Visa waiver

The USA allows citizens of specific countries to travel to the USA for purposes of business or pleasure for up to 90 days without a visa. Most of the participating countries are well developed.

Viewing Calendars and Events

Category : Table of Contents

Introduction to Viewing Calendars and Events

WebEvent allows you to view the schedule of events in whatever way best suits your needs. Choose list view or traditional calendar grid. Switch from month view to week view. Hide the event details. Filter events by category. Start your week on Tuesday. You make the call!

Overview of the WebEvent Calendar Screen

The standard calendar screen has a pale grey icon bar at the top of the page that, reading left to right, contains search, subscribe, print, options, help, and login/logout icons. (To the far right of the icon bar is the WebEvent logo.)

Beneath the icon bar is an optional calendar title area that may contain title and/or other calendar header information specified by the calendar administrator.

On the left-hand side of the screen above the calendar are four elements for navigating to a different timeframe: the “go-to-date” pull-down menus, the “Jump to Today” link, the day/week/2-week/month/year tabs, and the displayed date which is sandwiched by next/previous arrows (in the Date & User bar).

On the right-hand side of the screen above the calendar are pull-down menus for changing which calendars and/or categories of events are displayed in the current view.

On the right-hand side of the dark blue Date & User bar, your current user status is defined. Just above that bar, assuming that you have sufficient privileges, will be a bright gold “Add Event” button.

Using the WebEvent Navigation Tools

Date & User Bar: The left-hand side of the dark blue Date & User bar defines the date range currently on display. The right-hand side of the bar defines your current user status. (If you have not logged in to the current WebEvent session, your username is “guest”.)

Triple Arrows: The triple arrows that surround the date range currently displayed (such as <<>>) in the Date & User bar can be used to move forward or back one calendar page at a time. For example, in day view, clicking the forward arrows (>>>) will advance you a single day.

Timeframe Tabs: The yellow and blue file folder tabs (labeled day, week, 2-week, month, and year) allow one-click access to a different timeframe. For example, if you are currently in month view, clicking the week view tab will bring you to a screen showing only the week which contains the active day. (The active day is either today’s date, or whichever date you have most recently acted upon.)

Go-to-Date Menus: To visit a specific date, select the appropriate month, day and year using the “go-to-date” pull-down menus (just above the file folder timeframe tabs) and click the “Go” button. (The date will be displayed in the current timeframe view. So, if, while in month view, you selected September 20, 2001 with the “go-to-date” pull-down menus, the month of September will display and the 20th will be highlighted as the active day.)

Each time WebEvent loads a new screen, the “go-to date” pull-down menus default to today’s date. Therefore, the recommended way to refresh your screen and see the most recent changes other users have made to the calendar, is to click the “Go” button associated with the “go-to-date” pull-down menus (rather than using your browser’s “Reload” or “Refresh” button.)

Jump to Today: One-click access to today’s date. (This is also the recommended way to refresh your screen (in lieu of using your browser’s “Reload” or “Refresh” button) to see the most recent changes other users have made to the calendar.)

Choose Calendars: To change the calendar(s) contained in the current view, use the “Choose Calendars” pull-down menu on the right-hand side of the screen, above the Date & User bar. To choose a single calendar which is contained in the current view, highlight a calendar name underneath “From Current View” and click “Go.”

To choose calendars from the complete list of available calendars, highlight “From Full List” and click “Go”. On the “Select Calendar” screen, highlight the calendar(s) you want to view and click the “View Selected Calendar(s)” button. (Macintosh users should hold down the “Apple” key to select and deselect calendars; PC users should use the “Control” key.) To view all the calendars to which you have access, click the “View All Calendars” button.
In installations where the number of calendars and/or users is greater than the threshhold number (the default threshhold number is 50), the scalable interface will automatically launch to simplify interaction. See The Scalable Interface for more information.

Filter Events by Category: To specify the category(s) of events contained in the current view, use the “Filter Events by Category” pull-down menu on the right-hand side of the screen, above the Date & User bar. To view one category of events, highlight a category name underneath “Choose Single Category” and click “Go.”

To view events from a combination of categories, highlight “Select Multiple Categories” and click “Go”. On the “Select Categories” screen, select one or more categories and click the “Filter on selected category(s)” button. (Macintosh users should hold down the “Apple” key to select and deselect categories; PC users should use the “Control” key.) To view events in all categories, click the “Filter on all categories” button.

Defining Calendar Views and Formats

Calendar contents can be displayed in either a traditional calendar grid format or as a list of events.
Calendar Format: The calendar format uses the familiar columnar grid with weekday headings in year, month, 2-week, and week views.
List Format: The list format displays events in a chronological list in year, month, 2-week, week, and day views. If the calendar administrator has enabled “Enhanced List View”, an interactive three-month calendar (which functions the same as those in Year view) will also appear in the left-hand column.

To switch to the opposite calendar format, use the “Cal” and “List” links that appear just to the right of the Year Timeframe Tab. You can also click the “Options” icon at the top of the screen, move the radio button to the appropriate format on the “WebEvent Options” form, and click “Change options”.

Using the timeframe tabs you can view event information in the following timeframes:

Year View: From this yearly overview, you can select the year, month, week, or day you want to drill down to. Click on a month name to view the events in that month. Click on a week number within a particular month to view the events for that week. Click on a day number to view the events on that day.
In list format, Year view shows all the events for the selected year.
Month View: View events for the selected month.
2-Week View: View the events for the selected week and the following week.
Week View: View events for the selected week.
Day View: View events for the selected day.
Event View: When an event includes a description and “Show Details” has not been checked on the “WebEvent Options” form, you can click on the event title to view full event details. Depending on the calendar configuration, the details will display in a javascript pop-up window or in a standard screen view similar to day view.

Using the WebEvent Icon Bar

From left to right, the functions accessible via the icon bar are:
Search: Enter a keyword to search one or more calendars. Specify start and end dates to narrow your search. (By default the start date is today’s date.)

In installations where the number of calendars and/or users is greater than the threshhold number (the default threshhold number is 50), the scalable interface will automatically launch to simplify interaction. See The Scalable Interface for more information.
Subscribe: Subscribe to one or more calendars to receive event change notifications and/or reminders for upcoming events via email. (The Site Administrator must enable this feature for it to be available on a given calendar.)
Print: Open a new window to display a stripped-down, ready-to-print version of the current calendar view. (In most circumstances, clicking the “Print” icon will also automatically launch a print dialog box from your browser so that you only need to click “Print” or “OK” in that dialog box to print the current view.)
Options: Users with appropriate privileges can access Calendar and/or Site Configuration screens. All users can change various viewing options for the current session and export calendar data via the “WebEvent Options” form:
Export Calendar: Export events within a specified date range from one or more calendars.
Format: View the events as a list or in calendar grid format.

Mode: Change to view-only or modify mode. In Modify Mode, clicking on an event in the calendar will access the
Modify Event screen (assuming that you have write access to that calendar). In View Mode, clicking on an event in the calendar will display the event details.

Timezone:
Select the appropriate timezone for your location.

Use 24-hour Clock:
Designate your preferred time format (12- or 24-hour).

Show Weekends:
Show or hide Saturday and Sunday. (This has no effect on list views.)

Show Event Type Icons: Turn the “To-do” icons (an exclamation point for incomplete tasks and a checkmark for completed tasks) on or off.

Show Details: Choose between showing event details on the current page or clicking on the event to read the description. (Event details will be listed beneath the calendar grid in calendar view and will directly follow each event in list view.)

Show Icon Bar: Turn the icon bar section on or off. (If you elect to hide the icon bar, a “View Options” link will appear at the bottom of the screen to allow access again.)

Show Event Author: Turn the event author credit on or off.

Start Week On: Specify the first day of the week for calendar views.

Event Sorting: Specify the order in which events should be displayed on each date. (For example, you may prefer that untimed events such as birthdays be listed before each day’s tasks.)

Click “Change options” to begin viewing events with the options you have designated. Or select “Cancel Changes” to return to the calendar and view events with the default options.

Help: Access the user’s guide for help using and configuring WebEvent.

Login/Logout: Depending on the privileges granted your user account, clicking the “Login” icon and entering your WebEvent username and password may allow you to access additional calendars and configuration screens. If you are already logged in, clicking on the Logout button will log you out and provide the option of returning to the WebEvent startup page.

Exporting Events using vCal

Exporting events in the vCalendar (vCal) industry standard format allows users to export an event from WebEvent Publish to another application such as Outlook, Lotus Notes, Palm Desktop, or any other calendaring program that supports the vCal standard.

To export an event, click on the selected event to bring up either the event’s detail pop-up window, or the modify event screen, depending on whether you are presently in view mode or modify mode. You then simply need to click on the Export Event icon to export the selected event to the location of your choice.

For information on importing the exported event into a different calendaring program that supports the vCal standard, please refer to that program’s documentation or support resources.

The Scalable Interface

Category : Table of Contents

The scalable interface makes it easier to search for and select calendars and users in larger installations of WebEvent. The scalable interface is invoked when the number of calendars and/or users has exceeded the threshhold value (by default 50 calendars and/or users).

When the threshhold value is exceeded, WebEvent automatically substitutes a “Select…” button in all locations that traditionally display calendar and/or user pulldown lists. Clicking on the “Select…” button (or clicking in the associated textbox) launches a screen that will allow you to more easily search and select from large calendar and/or user lists.

Customizing WebEvent

Category : Table of Contents

Aesthetic Controls

Although certain display properties can be controlled via the Calendar Configuration and Site Configuration screens, for the most precise aesthetic control, you will need to customize WebEvent’s cascading style sheet (CSS).
Elements such as fonts, text size and alignment as well as background colors and link properties are controlled by the WebEvent style sheet. To customize the “look and feel” of your calendar installation, locate the file called ‘style.css’ in your WebEvent HTML documents directory (‘HtmlLocation’).

The style sheet can be modified with a text editor (such as emacs or vi on the UNIX platform, and WordPad or EditPlus on the Windows platform). Explanatory references appear throughout the style sheet to help you determine which styles control the particular elements you want to customize. (Each installation of WebEvent also includes a cascading style sheet called ‘style.css.original’. This file contains the default WebEvent aesthetic and display property settings should you ever need to restore those values.)

When your modifications are complete, save your work, and transfer the ‘style.css’ file back to your WebEvent HTML documents directory.

WebEvent HTML Footer: Enter the HTML that should be placed at the bottom of every WebEvent screen. (This is an ideal way to make WebEvent fit within the look and feel of the rest of your Web site.)
List Calendars on Startup Screen: Specify if the list of available calendars should appear on the startup screen.
Sort Calendars: Specify whether calendars should be listed in alphabetical or numerical order.
Startup Screen Header: Specify “Wrapped” or “Pre-formatted” and then enter the header for the startup screen.
Startup Screen Footer: Specify “Wrapped” or “Pre-formatted” and then enter the footer for the startup screen.
Show Meta-Calendar Abbreviations: Designate whether each event in a meta-calendar view should be labeled to indicate its calendar of origin. (For example, “Girls Softball Picnic Raindate (athletics)”.) Each event will be labeled by either a “short calendar name” or a calendar number, depending how the site options are configured.

Use Calendar Short Name: Designate if “short calendar names” or numbers should be used to label events in combined calendar views.

Meta-Calendar Header Text: Specify “Wrapped” or “Pre-formatted” and then enter the header to be displayed above each meta-calendar created.

Meta-Calendar Footer Text: Specify “Wrapped” or “Pre-formatted” and then enter the footer to be displayed beneath each meta-calendar created.

Eliminate All Standard HTML Headers: Check this box only if you want to over-write all standard HTML headers and replace them with your own. It is NOT necessary to check this box if you simply want to add to the existing HTML headers. (WARNING: Selecting this option will disable javascript and cause WebEvent to ignore almost all aesthetic settings from the site and calendar configuration screens. If you enter inappropriate or flawed HTML in the “WebEvent HTML Headers” field, your browser will not display your calendars correctly, if at all.)

The following site configuration options affect all calendars:

HTML Prefix: Enter the URL prefix that points to the directory where the WebEvent images and the user’s guide are stored.
Logout URL: Enter the URL for the location users should be sent to after they log out of WebEvent.
Send Email Using: Specify either “Sendmail” or “SMTP” as your email transport system. (“Sendmail” is only available on UNIX and MacOS systems; do not select “Sendmail” if WebEvent is installed on a Windows server).
SMTP Server: Enter the name of the server to which WebEvent should connect to send SMTP email.
SMTP Port: Enter the SMTP port number (almost always number 25) of the email server that will handle email reminders and notifications.
SMTP ‘From’ Email Address: Enter the email address you want mail to be “from” when WebEvent needs to send email.

Disable HTML (in description): Designate if HTML in the event description field should be prevented. (WARNING: Allowing HTML might constitute a potential security hole if you cannot trust your users to enter correct and valid HTML.)

Verify Email Addresses: Specify if WebEvent should verify the authenticity of addresses entered into reminder and notification fields. Choose “Complete” if WebEvent should check that all email addresses are entered as “name@company.com”. Choose “Short” to accept any text in email address fields.

Allow Calendar Subscriptions: Designate if visitors should be able to subscribe to receive event change notifications and/or reminders about upcoming events via email.

Open New Window for Event Info: Designate if WebEvent should use JavaScript to open a new window to display event details.

Open New Window for URLs: Designate if WebEvent should open URLs in a new window.

Hide Look-through Days: Designate whether WebEvent should show event information from adjacent months in the current month view (i.e., displaying Wednesday’s info in a differently colored cell when the month starts on a Thursday.)

Hide Look-through Days in Print View: Designate whether WebEvent should show event information from adjacent months in the month print view.

Get session timezone from browser: Designate whether WebEvent should get the current session timezone from the browser.

Week-view Format: Designate whether the days in week view (in calendar format) should be divided into hourly blocks.

Header for Meta-Calendar Print View: Enter the text to be displayed at the top of print views containing multiple calendars.

IP-Based ‘Guest’ Calendar Security: Enter security information (as described below) to use incoming IP addresses to limit guest user access to specified calendars.

The format of the security information is as follows:

calNUM IPNUMs
where “calNUM” is the calendar number (such as “cal1”) and where IPNUMs is one or more full IP numbers (separated by spaces) that use one of the following three formats:

1. Full IP address: 128.197.20.30
2. Wildcard which matches any entry in that position: 128.197.20.*
3. Range entry: 128.197.20.10-50

If any IP address information has been specified in the IP-Based Guest Calendar Security field for a given calendar, then only guest users with matching IPs will be granted access to that calendar.

The following site configuration options serve as the default values for newly created calendars and are used in meta-calendar views:

Prevent Double-booking Events: Select this if you want to prevent multiple events from being scheduled during the same time period. Only timed events (with a “Start Time” and/or “End Time”) or those marked “Busy All Day” will be affected by this feature. (This function helps avoid conflicts with conference room scheduling, appointment booking, and equipment reservations, for example.)

Allow Event Submission: Select this if you want the public to be able to submit events for inclusion in this calendar. The submitted event will not appear in the calendar until it is approved by a user with appropriate access.
Default Edit Mode: Specify which edit mode will be active when users first visit the calendar. (“Modify mode” will allow users with appropriate privileges to click on a date to add an event or click on an existing event to edit it. “View mode” requires users to visit the “WebEvent Options” screen to switch to “Modify mode” before adding or editing any events to which they have sufficient rights.)

Write Access Mode: Define the type of access that users with write access should have in this calendar. (“All”: users with write access can add, modify, or delete any event in the calendar. “Author”: users with write access can add new events, but modify or delete only the events they have created. “Add Only”: users with write access can only add new events.)
Default Calendar View: Select the view users will see when they first visit the calendar (day, week, 2-week, month, or year.)
Default Calendar Format: Select the calendar format users will see when they first visit the calendar (Calendar or List.)
Enhanced List View: Designate if the list view should include an interactive three-month calendar in the left-hand column.
Default Event Privacy: Select the default privacy status for new events (public or private.)
Default Priority: Select the default priority for new events (high, medium, or low.)
Default Title Size: Select the default title size for new events (smaller, normal, or larger.)
Default Title Color: Enter the appropriate RGB color code for the default title color for new events.
Default Title Style: Select the default title style for new events (normal, bold, or italic.)
Default Auto-forward To-dos: Determine if unresolved “To-dos” should automatically move forward each day.
Calendar Start Year: Select the year when the calendar should begin.
Calendar End Year: Select the year when the calendar should end.
Use 24-hour Clock: Designate your preferred time format (12- or 24-hour.)
Show Weekends: Show or hide Saturday and Sunday. (This has no effect on list views.)
Show Event Type Icons: Turn the “to-do” icons (an exclamation point for incomplete tasks and a checkmark for completed tasks) on or off.
Show Details: Turn the event details on or off.
Show Icon Bar: Turn the icon bar on or off.

Note: If you turn the icon bar off, a “View Options” link will appear at the bottom of the screen to allow access again.
Hide Graphics in Icon Bar: Display a text-only icon bar. (The “Show Icon Bar” field must remain checked.)
Show Event Author: Turn the event author credit on or off.

Force Show Event Author: Designate whether events with neither contact name nor contact email should display author credit. (In the case of missing contact information, the user who last modified the event will receive author credit.)

Show Next/Previous at Bottom: Duplicate the Date & User Bar (which allows users to move from one timeframe to the next) beneath the calendar.

Enable event download (vCal): Enable or disable event download.

Start Week on: Specify the first day of the week for calendar views.

Event Sorting: Specify the order in which events should be displayed on each date. (For example, you may prefer that untimed events such as birthdays be listed before each day’s tasks.)

Display new event icons for: Specify the time period during which the new event icon will be displayed for each newly added event.

Display modified event icons for: Specify the time period during which the modified event icon will be displayed for each modified event.

Enable “Cookie” Authentication: Designate if users should be allowed to save a cookie on the computer so that they do not need to log in each time they access WebEvent.

Cookie ID: Enter the unique identifier WebEvent should use to store cookies on users’ computers. Modifying this entry will force every user to login the next time they access WebEvent.

Cookie Expiration (in days): Enter the number of days WebEvent cookies should last.
