How can I download files from the newsletter
When you subscribed for our newsletter, you also receive the links to the direct downloads of most of the articles.
Some people didn’t know how to open them so here is a short manual on how to open a “.zip” or a “.doc” file.
- Zip files:
A zip file is used to pack multiple files in one file so the size is reduced. Everyone who does not have windows 7, has no standard .zip reader. You can download one here (WinRAR). Download and install the software. Now when you try to open a .zip file, it should open in the program or you should be able to select the program in a list. After opening, if you want the files on your desktop, just drag them where you want them and done.
- Doc files:
For everyone who doesn’t have Microsoft Word, you can always download Open Office. It’s a free software and it will open .doc files without any problem.
How can I reduce my internet usage to the minimum
Depending on the browser you are using the procedure is slightly different. (The best one according to me is ‘Chrome.’ Download: Google Chrome.) Find the ‘options’ button in your browser.
- For Chrome
In right top corner → ‘costumize and control’ → ‘options’ → ‘under the bonnet’ → ‘content settings’
- For Firefox
In left top corner → ‘extra’ → ‘options’ → ‘content’
- For Internet Explorer (Often standard browser but very slow!)
In right top corner → ‘tools’ → ‘internet options’ → ‘advanced’
Now scroll down and uncheck ‘play animations in webpages’, ‘play sounds in webpages’, ‘show pictures’
RSS feed of our selection / flux RSS de nos selections
If you have problems browsing websites on your computer, smartphone or tablet or just want to save time by having all your preferred websites coming in one place, we recommend you to use the rss technology. This tool allows you to download the headings and some information of the websites you want to follow instead of having to browse to the numerous websites. Check Google Reader for an online application. Apps also exist for Android and iOS that allow you to read offline. One of our editors uses MobileRSSfree to sync his feeds between Google Reader and his iPad.
