Advice @ selling an ebook.

Hi all,

I have recently completed an ebook titled 'Spirituality Decoded'. (appx. 50 pages).

It answers some of the most FAQs related to life like:

-> What is 'Moksha' (renunciation)?
-> What is enlightenment? and so on …

Plus, it includes some self improvement advice (like how to deal with inner conflict, anger, fear, bad habit, broken relationship, state of indecisiveness etc.).

Advice to detect suspicious activities on network

A private network (about 150 PCs) is connected to the internet through an edge router. According to the net admin, his network is scanned from the outside, at the edge router. I don’t have any more information.

What’s is the best method to quickly see if there are hackers on the network without alerting them? (Of course I check logs)

I thought to connect a sensor (tap Ethernet) behind the edge router, in order to capture packets silently and analyze with Snort.

The administrator wants to connect some new machines like a honeypot with a firewall to catch packets, scans and logs. I’m not for this method which seems very noisy.

What do you think?

“Mark as Reviewed” UI pattern advice

Designing for an enterprise application wherein the user’s primary area of focus is on a tabled list of “notices.”

The user’s task is to look through their notices and evaluate each each one, determining which ones demand further action and which ones do not.

Above the table is an Action Bar with a wide array of actions the user can take on table content; they can check off notices in the table and then use buttons in the action bar to export, trash, comment, print list, and “mark as reviewed”.

That last one is the sticking point — I’m trying to come up with an icon that signifies “mark as reviewed.” This action would mark any selected table rows with some kind of flag indicating that they’ve been seen.

Any ideas? Previously I was using an “open envelope with checkmark” icon, but in testing users resoundingly associated this with some sort of sharing-related functionality i.e. emailing notices to other users. Thanks for your input 🙂

“Apps permission Management running” advice

I can reboot my tablet (KT107) to the page showing the message “Apps permission Management running” I swipe up to the next page and select the icon to open the page showing All Apps – but this page is frozen and the tablet eventually switches itself off after about 5 minutes. During that timze the clock does not move. Is there a solution? The tablet is just 6 months old.
