    Backing Up the Registry

    If you're planning on messing with your Windows Registry, it's probably a good idea to back it up first!

    Here's how:

    1. Click Start /Run and typein "regedit" (no quotes). (If you're in Windows Vista or 7, just type it into the search box.)

    2. Next, click the File menu, then " Export".

    3. Select a location from the resulting box and give your backupregistry a
    name. Something like:


    Just a quick note: By default, Windows backs up the registrywhen you shut down your machine. The above is probably best usedfor those (like myself) who like to tinker with registrysettings.

    Now, how to restore the registry you just backed up...

    First, if Windows gets an error when loading your registry, itwill automatically revert to its backup, so it should never giveyou any kind of trouble loading.

    OK, but what do you do if you've been playing around in yourregistry and have *really* messed stuff up?

    Click the Registry menu (in the RegistryEditor) and select Import Registry . Then justpoint the computer to your back up file.

    I ran into the letters DRM the other day and I have no idea whatthey mean. Can you help?

    DRM is shortfor Digital Rights Management and it mainly deals with copyrightprotection issues on CDs, DVDs, etc. DRM is the technology thatpublishers, who are the copyright owners, use to control the accessof their data, including software, music, movies and some hardware.As I said before, DRM is associated with copyright protection andalso technical protections measures. Both of these technologieswork to secure the access of digital media and they both work inreference to the DRM design.

    There areother types of DRM as well. One in particular is Enterprise DigitalRights Management (E-DRM). This type doesn't work so much withcontrolling digital media, but it's more on the side of corporatedocuments, such as Word, PDF, TIFF and AutoCAD files. E-DRMsubscribers include Microsoft, Adobe and EMC Corporation. There arealso some open source companies that take advantage of it aswell.

    The biggestthing that surrounds DRM is the controversy over it. Obviously, themusic distributors and broadcasting companies object to any sort ofcopying of the music or whichever data they're working with. On theother hand, the consumers (you!) think otherwise. Some people thinkthat if they pay their own money to buy the CDs or the DVDs, theyshould be able to do what they want with them.

    If you try tocopy any digital media, you may run into some problems, dependingon the programs you use. For example, the digital media playersoftware you use, like Windows Media Player, etc. Althoughcopyright protection is making a bigger scene these days than inthe past, it just depends on what type of media you buy to know howmany problems you'll run into. There are also programs out theretoday that help you get past the copyright restrictions, but all ofthat just makes the controversy rise even higher.

    DRM is mainlyused in connection with the entertainment industry, but it's makingits way to other media types as well. Even stores like iTunes ande-books have placed DRM restrictions on their material. It's soeasy to duplicate data these days and everyone has to try and keeptheir information safe. I guess that's what it all comes downto.

    It is one'sown opinion, but be careful what you do when working with DRMprotection. Be careful not to dig yourself into a copyrighthole!

    Let's Visit the Data Series Again

    So, if you remember this tip then you're up to speed on one way to liven things up when you're working with charts in MS Excel multi-colored bars are easy and definitely more interesting than the default.

    If you're like most people I've seen using Excel then you created the chart as quickly as possible meaning that you have rectangular bars or, maybe if you were adventurous you have 3D rectangles.

    Assuming that's what happened then part of the reason you're looking to give the chart a face lift may be those boring old shapes.

    Today I'd like to take a look at a way to use the bar shapes to give that chart a little pizzazz without too much effort - or starting over! In fact, if you're already changing colors then you're just a few clicks away from my next suggestion.

    First, you'll need to right-click on the bars of the chart and choose Format Data Series.

    Once you're into your dialog box we're going to take a look at the types of shapes we can choose from.

    In older versions of Excel you'll need the Shape tab.

    In Excel 2007 you'll need the Shape category selected.

    Either way you simply have to choose one of the custom shapes and then check to see if you like the results you may just find the extra zip that you were looking to give to your data presentation!
