VTpass Profiles: The History of Website Development

Once, Bill Gates once said something about how “the internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow. Of course, the word ‘internet’ here does not refer to some abstract line of operations. It has more to do with the virtual constructions that parade its space. Now, these virtual constructions are what we call website development. These websites created across various planes and places come together to form the powerful force the internet is this day.

So, these websites make things happen literally. Like say, you want to check up on some information, you just have to go to www.google.com or wikipedia.com. Or you want to converse on social media, then you visit facebook.com; twitter.com etc. or you use their app. In fact, you also want to pay your bills without leaving home or work, then you can log on to www.vtpass.com. On vtpass.com, you get to pay your daily bills, electricity bills, tv subscriptions and data inclusive.

With these long row of opportunities provided by websites, you would want to know the long and enduring history of website developments. That is, how alphabets and codes have come all this way to make our lives better. Well, here is a briefing.

The internet was born in 1969. But at that time, there was no such thing as the internet. You could say not lots of people saw the need for it.

It was only twenty years later, that is in 1989, that the first website came about.

At that time, the websites were just raw HTML data whose servers were simple HTTP daemons. It took quite a lot of work to publish it on the net.

By 1994, the now popular websites got their place online. We had websites like Amazon, Yahoo, Netscape etc. Many common folks, as well as media personalities, still had issues understanding how it worked, especially the use of ‘at’ (@). The programming language used then was FTP. But from 1997-2000, PHP, a programming language purposely meant for developing websites walked in. By this time, about a million organisations and people were enlisted with the “wired world”. The whole idea of dot.coms started getting vibes. And more website builders like Drupal were released.

The wide and wild boon of the Wifi in 2002 further foregrounded the use of the internet.

And as more businesses demanded the use of the internet to manage enterprises, the internet evolved from a monologue to a dialogue. It became a two-way communication stream. Websites now had developers devoted to building them from the scratch. But these developers had the challenge of managing servers.

This challenge solved it slowly, the first step was the release of iPhone 1 in 2007. Now, people started to see the future in cloud computing. With the launch of Github.com in 2009 came a lot of decentralised environments and servers. Also, many website strata started upgrading their system. An example is Pantheon. And with the whole idea of Multi-Cloud Development being put together by them, there are no limitations to creating websites. And now over millions and millions of websites now live on the internet, providing information and solutions for the global space.

One such solution on the internet comes from the stable of VTpass. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you get to pay for your Mtn, Airtel, 9mobile, Glo airtime and data with utmost convenience and speed.

Christmas Preparations: The Eleventh Hour

It will be quite an understatement to say that Christmas is very near. Because it is in fact here already. Just a few days more and Christmas would be knocking on everyone’s door. But of course, you are not just realising this, right? So, the fact that you are checking up on this must mean that one way or the other, you got too busy to fix Christmas into your schedule. And now, you have to hurry up to make Christmas preparations at the very eleventh hour.

Well, this is nothing to worry about. With the tips below, you will be able to get around to a wonderful Christmas celebration.

So, Christmas is coming just as fast as you need to settle those expenses on your neck. You can jostle between the two well enough with www.vtpass.com. VTpass is an online payment platform that allows you to make payments for your everyday bills. You can pay for your airtime, data, tv subscriptions and even electricity bills. Really, we got your back when it comes to bill payments. So, you can go on and make your final Christmas preparations.

Here are few tips that can help you make that happen:

Surface Cleaning

Image result for surface cleaningNow, you are going to have an eleventh-hour Christmas celebration so you can’t afford to have your house all dirty and looking like a pig sty. But then, you don’t have all the time in the world to scrub everywhere clean. Well, you have two options in this case. You can either choose to delegate the cleaning of your house to some cleaning company or you can do a surface cleaning. This is more like doing a rub and shine. So that while you do not clean everywhere till they squeak, you can do a little work here and there to make sure your house looks homely and neat.

Group Work

Image result for preparing for Christmas as a groupFirst off, since it’s already the eleventh hour, then you can’t do it on your own. You have to work with everybody in the family. This is to ensure that everyone’s needs and preferences are put into consideration. Again, you should delegate responsibilities to the people around you. While you do one thing, they can help out in taking care of other things. So yes, for last minute Christmas preparations, you may not have the time to do a secret party or throw some elaborate surprise. But then, better late than never, right?

 Easy-to-Cook

Image result for looking at a cookbookNow, a late Christmas preparation isn’t usually the time to start digging out a very complicated recipe. Rather, do try to pick a menu option with an easier and lesser recipe. In fact, choose the very basic of all meals. But then, it must still complement the spirit of the season. So, for instance, you can bake a plain or fruitcake, and then, you can prepare pasta or rice with a very tasty meat sauce. There, you have a Christmas meal.

Priceless Gifts

Image result for woman wrapping gift for ChristmasYou know, when it comes to gifts and all, there is an advantage to thinking them much later. And the advantage to this is that you get to pick the right ones. There is some sort of anxiety that comes with trying to choose the right present to give to your loved ones. Most times, you eventually go all out to buy a lot of things but most of these things don’t come in handy in the long run. But when you get to choose under pressure, you apparently don’t worry picking the things that seem nice to you. You just worry about being able to give your family and friends something appreciable. And then quite surprisingly, what you feel is very trivial to them would eventually turn out to be something they have always wanted from someone else.

So, you don’t have to worry about how late you get the gifts. You just have to make whatever you get for your loved ones look and feel really special. And talking about special, do not forget to wrap the gifts as soon as you get them. You don’t want anyone peeping on them, do you?

Music

Related imageMusic, in general, manages to make anything come alive. Use this to your advantage during your Christmas preparations and after. Play your favourite songs and turn up the volume of your stereo. And then dance away with your family. This tunes up your festive spirit and makes your Christmas worth celebrating.

Be Happy

Image result for a happy family during ChristmasThis is the real deal. No one, no season, nothing can make you happy except yourself. So if you want to get in tune with the festive season; if you want to crown your Christmas celebration. Then, you have to be happy. Eat, drink and be merry. Invite your friends and go out with a smiling face. And then, no matter what happens this Christmas, don’t let it get you down.

So, while you are out there living Christmas, do make sure to settle your expenses the easy way. With VTpass, you can make this happen. Simply log on to www.vtpass.com and you get to pay for your MTN, AIRTEL,9MOBILE, GLO airtime and data.

So, what this means is that you can as well pay your bills conveniently during the Christmas and New Year holiday. Log on to www.vtpass.com now for a better way to pay your bills.

Top Christmas songs for 2017

When it comes to saving the best music for last, the Christmas season epitomises this quite well. Every Christmas, it is hardly impossible not to hear music buzzing from every nook and cranny. The spirit of the season inspires a festive mood and creates the atmosphere for beautiful music. But every Christmas, it seems the same old jams are always in the mix. Christmas songs about jingle bells and how Santa Claus is coming to town to frown at naughty kids and bless the nice ones.

Well, if these are the only Christmas tunes you have heard in a long while. Then you seem to be missing out on all the other best tunes Santa Claus has in his stock.

You cannot afford to miss out on any of the deals this Christmas has to offer. For one, at VTpass, we have quite a lot to offer our customers this season. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you get to settle your everyday bills right on time. You can pay your electricity bills, airtime, data and tv subscriptions in the nick of time with www.vtpass.com.

Happy Xmas (War is Over)

This Christmas classic by John Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono does a lot to bring Christmas down to the very grassroots. And it is also a way to be thankful for a Christmas without war or any such occurrence.

Must be Santa

Bob Dylan is a Nobel Laureate. But then, he still could not miss out on the festive period of Christmas. And so he sang this song to commemorate the season.

Angels we have heard on High

Several times, you must have heard this hymn. But not in this fashion. It took the gathering of great vocals led by Peter Hollens to put this together.

A  Pentatonix Christmas

 

If you know the Pentatonix well enough, you will know that they have a knack for remixing popular Christmas songs into beautiful songs. Here are some of their tunes.

Every day is Christmas

This playful mix by Sia is very much inspiring for the very young generation. Because for them, every day is really Christmas.

Jingle Bells

And yes, we cannot miss out on our indigenous Christmas jamz by Tunde Ednut featuring other stars like Davido, Lynxx, Ice Prince and the likes. This might not sound a lot like the jingle bells you know.

VIRTUAL TOP UP (VTU): WHAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW

Constantly, there is an uptrend drive in the world to effectively carry out tasks in more convenient manners. Indeed, everyone tries to find an alternative way to perform daily duties better and faster. And by implication, we harness any such resources at our disposal to ensure ease and speed in performing tasks. But then, even the supposedly fast routes to doing things have their downs. And it is as a result of this that VTpass, an online payment platform, has come to stay as a reliable way of meeting daily needs.

Virtual Top-up is a profiteering venture where you get to sell services as a VTU vendor through your mobile device and get profit.

By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you get to easily and conveniently perform your several VTU transactions.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM VTPASS

VTpass wishes everyone who is privileged to sit around a table of roasted turkey or other sumptuous meal and say thanks a happy Thanksgiving. There is nothing worth thankful for than being alive and having your family and friends all around you. And what’s a Thanksgiving without sharing? Well, VTpass has made sharing, even more, fun and convenient through the online payment platform, www.vtpass.com. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can easily share airtime and data with your friend. You can even afford to pay their electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions and so much more without having to see them at all. Really, this is more than any plastic-wrapped turkey you can afford to give them.

Talking about roasted turkey; this week, Donald Trump performed the obligatory before-thanksgiving ceremony where he got to pardon a lucky turkey and spare him the burden of coming under the knife.

The turkey which weighs about 36 pounds was given official pardon while the rest are left to bend their neck to the Thanksgiving celebration. Honestly, except for the fact that it is practised by one of the world’s powerful nations, this tradition sounds quite bizarre but it has quite a formidable heritage supporting it. Something that truly deserves a telling over and over again.

It all started with Tad, the fine son of our good president, Abraham Lincoln. In 1863, a turkey had been brought to Lincoln’s home for Christmas dinner. But young Tad took a liking for the turkey and pleaded that its life should be spared. Following this, the tradition of keeping a turkey alive has somehow managed to slip into modern civilisation.

But at first, it was not quite a binding rule to spare these turkeys. In fact, dead and roasted turkeys were usually offered as gifts to presidents during the 1870s. A Rhode Island poultry farmer Horace Vose was very accountable in this regard. Called the poultry king, Vose’dead and roasted Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys started with President Ulysses S. Grant and continued till he died in 1913. Even after his death, the “turkey gifts” were established as a customary practice and an emblem of goodness.

It was not until 1947 that the National Turkey Federation and the Poultry and Egg National Board gave live turkeys to the then President Harry Truman. Somehow, President Truman got pretty excited about this and photographed himself with the adorable turkey weighing 42 pounds before slapping it unto his Christmas plate. But already, the iconic image stuck out like a thumb in the minds of many.

President John Kennedy in 1963 took a cue from this and pardoned a turkey given him for a celebration. The president’s choice to offer clemency to the turkey might be slightly influenced by the sign that stuck around the turkey’s head which read, “Good eating, Mr President.” To this, Mr President simply replied, “We’ll just let this one grow.”

After Kennedy, this sparing a turkey’s life, it was pretty much becoming a campaign so that President Richard Nixon went on to send off the birds offered to him as gifts to the local petting zoo. Perhaps he didn’t feel right sending off the birds to a straightforward death in the presidential kitchen. President Ronald Reagan followed this trend, sending off Charlie, his birdie gifts to the Frying Pan petting zoo, but not without mentioning that the turkey had been pardoned.

November 26, 2008
George Bush (C) pardons a turkey named Pumpkin

Well, George H. W. Bush on the 17th day of November 1989 came all out to declare the pardoning of turkeys. He said “let me assure you, and this fine tom turkey…he’s granted a presidential pardon as of right now.”

And true to Bush’s words, several lucky turkeys have received pardon every November at the hands of benevolent American presidents.

Wow, this is quite a story. It tells of the making of history by merely sharing and offering gifts. You too can make a good impression on your folks by sharing so much love with your family. And this you can do with www.vtpass.com. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can in three easy steps share airtime and data with anyone.

JEFF AND MACKENZIE BEZOS: VTPASS PROFILES

The world seems to always revolve around those it considers powerful and rich. And when it comes to power and wealth, one person that easily comes to mind is Jeff Bezos. Well, you might know Bezos as the founder of the world’s largest online retail company, Amazon. But there is actually more to him. And yes, there is his ‘resourceful, smart, brainy wife MacKenzie Bezos (alias Tuttle). This power couple has a lot of history hovering them which you would want to know about.

In like manner, VTpass is an online retail payment platform. And it solely deals with the provision of everyday services. This includes our everyday airtime and data services, cable TV subscriptions, electricity bills and so on. Hence, just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you get to buy your MTN, AIRTEL, 9MOBILE, GLO airtime and data subscriptions. You can also renew your DSTV, STARTIMES AND GOTV subscriptions and electricity bills. In this light, we celebrate the person of Jeff Bezos as a success in the online trading sphere.

WHO IS JEFF BEZOS?

Jeff BezosJeff Bezos has an originally lengthy name which is spelt out as Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen in 1964. He was birthed by Ted and Jorgensen and Jacklyn Preston, who was 17 and with a rich heritage. After a year plus, Jacklyn left off her marriage with Ted and went for Miguel Mike Bezos. This caused Jeff’s panegyric name to simply become Jeff Bezos (not like it matters anyway).

Even as a child, Jeff showed deep interest in scientific matters. And all through his schooling, he pursued his interest. So that he went on to study electrical engineering and computer science at Princeton University.

BezosAfter school, Bezos worked in the computer science field and also ventured into the financial business, international trade and a hedge fund.

1994 was the year when Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in his garage at Seattle. And the rest is history. Right now, he owns nearly 17% of Amazon. His net worth is $95.4 bill. At a time, Bezos briefly topped Forbes’ ranks of the world’s richest in July 2017, as his online retailer’s stock surged.

SPACE TRAVEL

BezosBezo’s other passion is space travel. In fact, in an interview, he had when he was eighteen, he “said he wanted to build space hotels, amusement parks and colonies for 2 million or 3 million people who would be in orbit. According to him, ‘The whole idea is to preserve the earth’. And he has followed up with his dream with his aerospace company, Blue Origin. Right now, the space flight startup company is developing a reusable rocket that Bezos says will carry passengers. Even at this, Bezos has more ambitious plans for Blue Origin:

“We want to go everywhere, [requiring significantly lower launch costs.] Our number-one opponent is gravity. … The vision for Blue is pretty simple. We want to see millions of people living and working in space. That’s going to take a long time. I think it’s a worthwhile goal.”

Bezos exhibited an extension of his greatness when he purchased The Washington Post in 2013 for $250 million. Not just that, though, Bezos has contributed to the success of a whole lot of other companies. Companies like Airbnb, Linden Lab, Aviary, Google, Uber, Twitter etc. have benefitted from his funding. All these and much more are part of the Bezos Expedition.

And you would want to know that he featured in one of the Star Wars seasons.

MACKENZIE BEZOS

MacKenzieNot many will know Jeff Bezos’ wife. But the few who do knows that she is physically, mentally and financially on point. First off, she is a writer of great repute. Her first novel, The Testing of Luther Albright, won the 2006 American Book Award. She recently published another novel, Traps, in 2013.

bezosShe worked for Jeff Bezos in 1992 at his hedge fund job. During this time, she fell for his warm laughter and asked him out to a meal. After six months, they got married. And then, they moved to Seattle from New York together. So Mackenzie Bezos has been with Jeff right from his beginning as the founder of Amazon.

Right now, MacKenzie Bezos is the director of Bystander Revolution, an anti-bullying revolution which she founded in 2014.

So pretty much, this couple is making some big impact on humanity itself.

HOW OUR MOBILE PHONE REALLY WORKS

Have you ever known anyone to ponder on how we manage to seamlessly communicate with others on our mobile phone? And other people do not seem to understand the wireless connection and a proper two-way conversation. Well, this might be a weird thing to ask or ponder on. But it is an abiding question at the back of the mind of many. Also, we do not have to necessarily assume this to be merely a technological wonder. We can actually get to know how this connection come about.

mobile phoneFor one, VTpass, as an online payment platform, leverages on this seamless connection to provide the best of service for her customers. So that just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can get your daily services. You are looking to buy airtime and data, pay electricity bills and cable tv subscriptions? Then www.vtpass.com will work just fine for you. So, coming to our phone and the endless calls we seem to always make and receive. Not just that, we can even get information on the Internet, play game, watch TV and integrate other devices into our phones. How does it all really work?

Now, the mobile phone is a radio, a sort-of higher grade radio. But a radio still.radio,phonee

In fact, when the cell phones were not available, people with means could install radio telephones in their cars. But then, there was one central antenna tower per city, and perhaps 25 channels available on that tower. What this meant was that meant that the phone in your car needed a powerful transmitter — big enough to transmit through a long distance. It also meant there just were not enough channels to go round for everybody. Only a few people could use the radio-telephone.

The innovation of the cellular system laid in the division of cities into small cells. This meant extensive frequency reuse across a city so that millions of people can use cell phones simultaneously.

phone,vtpassA walkie-talkie kind of works in the same way. So, understanding the walkie-talkie will lead to an understanding of the cell phone. But of course, the cell phone works in a more complex way.

Now, the walkie-talkie is a half-duplex device. That is, two people communicating on a walkie-talkie use the same frequency, so only one person can talk at a time. On the other hand, a cell phone is a full-duplex device. That means that you use one frequency for talking and a second, separate frequency for listening. Both people on the call can talk at once.

And then, a walkie-talkie typically has one channel. A typical cell phone can communicate on 1,664 channels or more. Also, while walkie-talkie can transmit about 1 mile (1.6 kilometres) using a 0.25-watt transmitter.Cell phones operate within cells, not transmitters, and they can switch cells as they move around. Cells give mobile phones incredible range. Someone using a cell phone can drive hundreds of miles and maintain a conversation the entire time because of the cellular approach.

phone,vtpassHence, the mobile or cell phones basically use cells to operate. The carrier chops up the city into cells. Cells are normally thought of as hexagons on a big hexagonal grid, like this. Basically, these are what we call masts

What further aids the cell connection is the use of low power transmitters. This allows for the same frequencies to be reused in nonadjacent cells. Each cell has about 56 voice channels available. In other words, in any cell, 56 people can be talking on their cell phone at one time. Analog cellular systems are considered first-generation mobile technology, or 1G. With digital transmission methods (2G), the number of available channels increases. And the increment has only continued with time.

Another thing you need to know is that all cell phones have special codes associated with them. These codes help identify the phone, the phone’s owner and the service provider. So these codes are responsible in some way for how calls are regulated by carriers.

phoneSo yes, there is a whole lot of story when it comes to how cell phones work. But you would have discovered from all indications that the cell phone we have in your hands or home is one wonderful device. And its usefulness cannot be overemphasized. Also, we cannot afford to take all the connection we have access to for granted. To keep connected, you are to regularly renew your airtime and data.
