• Coverage

    Term used for a toner usage measurement on laser printing. For example, 5% coverage means that an A4 sided paper has about 5% image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a
    toner usage will be as much as the coverage.

  • Duty Cycle

    Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer performance for a month. Generally the printer has the lifespan limitation such as pages per year. The lifespan means the average capacity of print-outs, usually within the warranty period. For example, if the duty cycle is 48,000 pages per month assuming 20 working days, a printer limits to 2,400 pages a day.

  • Photoshop

    Adobe Photoshop is the most widely used photo editing software in the world.

    It is also heavily used by graphic designers to create logos, buttons and other graphics for web sites.

  • eXtensible Markup Language (XML)

    XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language.

    It is a way of organizing text and/or contents with tags. Tags look like this:

    <sometag>some content</sometag>

    Of course, although possible, this is not designed to be read by humans. It is designed to be processed by machines. Typically one program generates an XML document and another one computes it to some further extent.

    And XML document very much looks like an HTML document, except that the tags are different.

    There are actually many different dialects of XML, each for a different purpose. Each of these dialects has its own tags. And even more tags can be added. Hence the "eXtensible" in the name.

    There is an XML dialect for writing web pages. It is called XHTML. It is basically the same thing as HTML except for minor syntaxic differences. For example in HYML you would write <BR> whereas in XML you would write <br />.

    Other XML dialects include RSS and Atom.

  • Modem

    A modulator-demodulator is a device used to transmit digital data over an analog channel. It modulates/demodulates a carrier signal in order to encode digital information onto it.

    A modem is typically used to transmit computer data over POTS phone lines.

  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

    FTP is a protocol for transferring files over TCP/IP networks such as the Internet.

    To transfer files, you need to connect to an FTP server with some FTP client software.

    FTP can be used to transfer very large files, especially files that are too large to be sent via email. However, the need for a server to exchange files with someone else makes this less practical than email.

    FTP is also commonly used to upload web pages and web applications to web sites. Most web servers also feature an FTP server.

    Some commonly use FTP clients are:

    • Windows: FileZilla
    • Mac: CyberDuck, Transmit
    • Unix: ftp command
  • Charge Coupled Device (CCD)

    Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is the hardware which captures the image in scanners and digital cameras.

  • Call To Action (CTA)

    The CTA is the primary usier interface element (button, link, form...) that asks the user to take the action the website would like its visitors to take. This results in a "Conversion".

    Examples: "Buy now" button, "Sign up", "Download now", "Subscribe here"...

  • Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP)

    A network protocol used by a network client to obtain its IP address automatically. This is usually done during the bootstrap process of computers or operating systems running on them. The BOOTP servers assign the IP address from a pool of addresses to each client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation' computers as well as other networked devices (printers...) to obtain an IP address prior to loading any advanced operating system.
