How Do I Write Letters With Accent Marks In Microsoft Word?

On Microsoft Word, if you need to write Á or other letters, just press CTRL key, hold and press Apostrophe key, release both keys and then press A key. The same for other letters like IUEO.

If you want to write on your blog just copy from Word to your blog editor, maybe there another keys combination in your blog editor but instead of remembering different keys combination I prefer to copy and paste from Microsoft Word.

What is the difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit Processor?

At the moment there are 32 bit and 64 bit processor type, the main difference is hardware architecture that allows more instruction per second executed in 64 bit processor, thus the performance will better in a computer with 64 bit processor.

32 bit or 64 bit

32/64 bit application

32 bit processor only can run 32 bit operating system, while 64 processor can run 32 or 64 bit operating system.

The other reason is maximum memory can be recognized and utilized by the system. When using 32 bit processor it’s maximum memory is 4GB regardless of what Windows Edition you are using. While in Processor 64 bit can up to 192GB in Windows 7 depend on what windows edition you are using.
In Windows 10 you can add up to 2TB RAM (memory).

Windows 7 64 bit and its maximum memory:

Windows Starter Edition: 8GB
Home Basic Edition: 8GB
Home Premium Edition: 16GB
Professional Edition: 192GB
Enterprise Edition: 192GB
Ultimate Edition: 192GB

Windows 10 64 bit and its maximum memory:

Windows 10 Enterprise Edition 2TB
Windows 10 Education Edition 2TB
Windows 10 Pro Edition 2TB
Windows 10 Home Edition 128GB

If you are using high intensive memory usage like database applications and video intensive application then the more memory you have, the better your system running.

Someone is currently logged into the APC Management Web Server – Solved

This “Someone is currently logged into the APC Management Web Server. Please try again later” error happen if someone just closes the browser instead of logging off. In this case, APC web server thinks that the session is still running and they do not allow another session to be created existing session closed first. There are several ways to fix this problem:

Someone is currently logged into the APC Management Web Server - Solved 1

1. Add logout.html after the URL

I read this from

If you are usually accessing from http://x.x.x.x then modified to http://x.x.x.x/logout.htm this will work fine as long as your computer IP address are the same as the last successful login computer. If this doesn’t work because you have different IP address then you have to find the last successful login IP address as described in this post and video.

2. Telnet the device and logoff

From  you can use telnet programs such as PuTTY or terminal to log in to the device and log out. This work if you have telnet port open (port 23 or 22), if not you have to telnet directly to UPS serial port.

3. Using FTP this is my experience

This is only required if your IP address different from the last successful login user. If the same IP address uses no 1 above.

All our client computers are DHCP client means it sometimes got a different IP address from the server. If we forgot to log out after using APC web management server then the error Someone is currently logged into the APC Management Web Server will arise and we cannot just add logout.htm at the end of UPS address as in step no 1 because the IP address is different. Below are steps how we can overcome this problem.

This should work if FTP port opened and it does on my UPS.


Open file event.txt

Look for the IP address from last successful logged in.

Now login from a computer who have the same IP address but first you have to log out using http://x.x.x.x/logout.htm

After that, you should able to log in.

If you are still unsure how to do this, I made this video for you.

Summary of the above video is:
Login to APC device FTP

Open event.txt file

Find the last successful login IP address

Change the IP address to be the same as in the event.txt record.

Logout by adding logout.htm after device’s IP address

Now you can log in again

4. Press the reset button on the network management card

If you have physical access to the UPS you can press the reset button on network management card. This card usually located on the rear panel of UPS. This is the most simple solution to the error message: Someone is currently logged into the APC Management Web Server. However, this method requires access to APC UPS physical device. Please see below picture to find the exact location of the button.

5. Still having a problem?

Read this APC forum.

About APC management web server:

We use an APC management web server to check current UPS status, voltage, battery etc. The most important for us is to configure alert if the room temperatures go beyond the limit. It means something happens with an air conditioner that can cause servers down/broken because of overheat.

I configure the setting so that anytime temperature rise above the limit in the server room because of the problem with air conditioner, maintenance team and IT team are the ones who got alert and we try to fix before something bad happen with servers and other IT equipment in that room. This is a very important feature for us and we glad it worked perfectly. Oh yes by the way our APC UPS model is: SMART RT8000.

Installing Ion Cube Extension on VPS Server

One of my websites needs a plugin that needs IonCube loader. IonCube loader is needed to decrypt script that encrypted by Ioncube, without it the script/plugin will not work.
Below is step by step installation of Ion Cube 5.6 :

First, you need to install IonCube Loader version 5.6

Installing Ion Cube Extension on VPS Server 3

Log in to the server using PuTTY, check whether you have 64 bit or 32 bit system architecture by issuing arch command:

installing ion cube

as my system 64 bit then I need to download following:


Once downloaded unzip it using the command:

# tar xfz ioncube_loaders_lin_x86-64.tar.gz
ioncube loader install

Check your PHP version by issuing command:

php -v
install ioncube loader ubuntu

As you can see here, my PHP version is 5.6.35, if not this version you might need to change your PHP version, see this post how to do it.

Check which Ion Cube version I match it with your PHP version, as my PHP version is 5.6.35 then my Ion Cube file will be

install ioncube centos 7
Issue command php -i | grep extension_dir to get the information of the location of extension directory.
install the latest version of the ioncube loader
Copy IonCUBE to the directory using the command:
cp ioncube/ /usr/lib64/php/modules
ioncube loader wordpress
Edit PHP.INI in vi editor using command:
vi /etc/php.ini
add this command:
zend_extension = /usr/lib64/php/modules/
Installing Ion Cube Extension on VPS Server 4

Some commands while working with vi editor:

Press Semicolon key (:) and type wq to save and quit from VI editor
Press Semicolon key (:) and type w! to save and quit from VI editor

Now restart apache server by issuing command systemctl restart httpd or restart server when restart apache server doesn’t work 🙂

Verify IONCube loader installation using a command

UEFI vs BIOS Legacy Which One is Better?

UEFI vs BIOS Legacy Which One is Better?

UEFI and Legacy BIOS are 2 different systems of Motherboard’s firmware. UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) is the replacement for the legacy BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) system. It has several enhancements over the legacy BIOS.

Security features

UEFI has more security features than a legacy mode which is why highly recommended to use this mode than the legacy mode.

Less complex code

UEFI developed using C language while legacy BIOS mode use assembler. C language is simpler than assembler, thus we can add new code easily and adapt the program to match the user’s needs.

Boot Faster Than Legacy Mode

As UEFI able to customize causing it to boot faster than Legacy BIOS. This is because UEFI no need to self-test the system as the Legacy mode does.

Compatibility Issue

in Legacy mode, you might remember that we need to update BIOS firmware to make our new hardware works with the system. With UEFI drivers can be uploaded without upgrading the firmware as it has a separate system.

Recognize Bigger Hard drive Partition

UEFI is able to support Harddrive with more than 2 TB capacity. To be able to boot using UEFI mode, you need to replace MBR with the GPT system.

UEFI can have more than 4 primary partitions.

Secure Startup

UEFI is able to check the integrity of the Operating system when booting to make sure the operating system is not changed by any malicious program.

Remote Support Networking

Remote troubleshooting is possible at the level of UEFI before accessing the Operating system. This is not possible in Legacy mode.

With the above features will you start using UEFI for a better and faster computer system? All new computer systems support UEFI and you should use them.

CMOS Checksum Error, What To Check?

CMOS Checksum Error, What To Check?

When you found CMOS checksum error or CMOS checksum bad message this indicates there is a problem with your BIOS system.

There are 2 options, press Esc key to continue (on some computers you need to press the F2 key). The other option is to press F1 key to enter the Setup menu.

cmos checksum error

If after setting the BIOS configuration you start the computer the next day still found the same error it indicates that the battery is not functioned properly.

CMOS battery is weak or dead. You have to replace it with the new one.
Replacing CMOS battery will need to open computer casing so you need to prepare a screwdriver and a new CR 2032 battery. Some computers still using the green battery that soldered into the motherboard. You need to prepare the solder to replace the battery.

CR2032 battery
Modern computers using button battery CR2032 to maintain the BIOS data.

BIOS battery


Besides CMOS checksum error message it will also reset all your BIOS setting thus every time you turn on the computer it will ask setup BIOS before you can continue working with the computer, this is very annoying.

In most cases after replacing the battery, CMOS checksum error message will disappear. However, if you still see the error it could be a hardware problem. Maybe there is corrosion on the mainboard or other problems.
