    Planning- design a memo, letter and webpage for Capital FM.

    4 star(s)

    I have been called into help advertise the company and help fix some of their ICT solutions. In order to do this, I will construct a memo to help the company run smoother. Last week we received a new sum of money that was raised in a raffle we organised. With that money we will be employing an additional presenter. I will be drafting a letter to all possible candidates for an interview. I will also make a homepage that links both of these documents.

The biggest would be the Walthamstow Central Underground and National Rail station which is, as the name states, in the central of the town.

    Evaluation of my ICT Database, Spreadsheet and Newsletter

    3 star(s)

    I had no internet access so no viruses could be downloaded. I saved my work regularly just in case of a power cut, or if I knocked the wires, or if some other thing happened. My work was regularly backed up, every night, and saved on an external hard-drive. I followed safe, healthy and secure working times at all times. I can load software and save work in folders without help. I can also print, and use the computer network without aid.

    This is probably due to a poor posture or an awkward position while sitting at a computer. Some of the things that people can do to help avoid back pain are: - Use a fully adjustable chair. The height of the chair and the seat position should be easy to change. - Use footrests so that the legs are kept at a more natural angle - Use a monitor which is adjustable. Position it so that the neck doesn't have to bend - Take regular breaks and walk about. - Sit with the back straight and the head up, don't slouch Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)

The graph to the left shows UK internet retail sales, as you can see between April 2000 and December 2002 the online retail market value has seen a sharp increase. There are many reasons for this, firstly that internet shopping is a lot safer then it was ten years ago, sites such as PayPal make online shoppers feel safer as you only give out your card details to one company and they act as a 'middle man' between you and the seller.

    Validation can be used in a database, where you set up the fields in a database so that only certain information can be entered. It's a check by the actual computer program and makes sure that the data is allowable. There are many different checks that can be performed: � Character type check - This check will make sure that the correct characters are entered into the computer. � Length check - Where the length of the word that has been entered is checked, and if this is incorrect an error message is displayed.

    Designing a database for Type a Flight Travel Agent.

    3 star(s)

    Another advantage of having a database is that they can serve more customers at the same time. One of the problems is that it is time consuming to keep on writing new letters by hand so I have come to the conclusion of designing template letters. The advantage of this solution is that it saves time because the staff members do not have to write the letters out by hand instead they can post the template letters to the customers' houses. I have decided to create a database for type a flight so that there is less time being consumed.

    Curry's Website Analysis

    3 star(s)

    Colour Curry's have a specific colour theme in which contains red and white. This is used on all items related to the business, for example the website, the leaflets and the carrier bags. They use red and white because they are contrasting colours and stand out when used together. It gives a more professional feel to the website. And rather than using red on white for text they use white on red. Using these colours in the way they do it makes the logo very easy to remember and notice. And if you saw it you would know straight away what it was for.

    Once the data has been collected and inputted into the system there will have to be security surrounding this data. I would suggest that you make one or more backup copies of the data (this will be done on CD RW disks as they can store 800mb on average). This is so that if the original data becomes lost or corrupt then the backup copies will be able to replace the lost or corrupt file. The backup copies will need to be updated regularly so that if a backup copy needs to replace a lost file then no data will be lost.
