Howto use facebook chat

hello friends,

writing this post because i noticed most of my facebook friends are no longer handling properly that option on facebook. They actually stay connected for several hours on facebook but remain invisible on the chat meanwhile they really want to chat 🙂 😀

to use the chat option, click on this icon (bottom right):chatafter clicking on that, the chat windows rises and clings to the right coner like this :

now click on

(1)  that opens up another sub window  with 3 options (check figure below) :

– “available to chat” : if activated (like mine – with a “tick”), then you’re online, else click on it

– “chat sounds” : it’s purpose is to get sound notifications when someone writes you

– “limit availability” : here you can go further to specify the people (or group) for which you should be visible or not (when you click, you’ll know how to configure from logical judgement).

Thant’s all for the option (1).

Since the chat list(side bar) remainds attached to that right wall, you can bring it down just by clicking on the option(2)…. 🙂

thanks for reading…i guess i’ll see more & more people online……:p

which to choose: tutorials or textbooks ??

Hi dear readers; one thing stroke my mind last night; it’s about a reflex that us  IT people tend to have in this profession. It’s the way we  gather knowledge to becoming professionals. Two options generally : reading tutorials && reading textbooks.

“A tutorial seeks to teach by example and supply the information to complete a certain task.” (read more here); meaning people learn here by WYSIWYG (what you see; is what you get) or better; “LEARN BY DOING”……and it turns out that learning through this method is rapid. You’ll know many things when u keep reading tutorials (in a short while). But then; one aspect is left out:::: the scientific knowledge underlying the tutorials you’re reading is most at times left out; and people tend to be very competent but incapable to scientifically back-up their professional doings….funny but luckily; all that theoretical stuff is not needed at work places..lol 🙂

Text books makes one rather dynamic is the sense that; all concepts are laid down in books; and with a brain that works out properly: that person can deal with very much varying practical situations (unlike tutorials which teaches you specific methods to handling specific problems most at times). But one need to take time to go through and digest all these knowledge in books. And we all know “patients” is something hard to get these days, plus it seems like wasting time on reading ONE book that tackles ‘so deeply’ a specific concept meanwhile technology is rapidly growing out there

🙂 i particularly welcome comments for this post; thanks for reading………….., 🙂 🙂
