Twitter Traffic Machine

Twitter Traffic Machine
Bill Cosby, the designer of Twitter Traffic Machine gave people the exact system he had used to build more than 20k Twitter followers in just a few months. He claims that he achieves massive traffic from his results. Bill developed the Twitter Traffic Machine in which he claims will bring in followers on an autopilot system. Once the followers start coming in it is leveraged, which traffic starts pouring in to view his offers.

What is Twitter
Twitter according to Wikipedia is a social network system and micro-blog service that allows the users to submit and read other users updated tweets.

About the Tweet
The tweets are “text-based posts,” which have as many as 140 characters in length. The updates appear on the profile page in which it is delivered to other end-users who have signed up to receive these tweets. Each sender can set up restrictions for delivery to their circle of online friends and deliver to each person’s defaults. Visit Twitter Traffic Machine.

This circle allows the marketers to follow users in exchange of them following the marketer. Some of the advanced users reach the Profitable level. According to Bill, each user sends his link to other followers via the Tweeter system and receives 2 percent of his followers simply by clicking on it instantly. This equals “400 free clicks” says Bill within minutes.

What Makes the Twitter Traffic Machine Work?
The Twitter Traffic Machine is a course, which includes videos. The videos walk you through the steps of setting up an automated pilot that duplicates “Bill’s success.” the system is entirely automated and dubbed the Twitter Growth and Moneymaking system. You simply learn how to set up the autopilot system and forget about it.

This system is “much targeted,” which allots the users to build their followers who are interested in your niche market. According to some people, there are six videos, but Bill states in his online video that there are five total. In each video, Bill shows you how to setup and use the Twitter Traffic Machine system to its entirety. Once you setup the autopilot system you start increasing your followers based on the use of the free Internet tools Bill has to offer.

The videos contain some very useful content. Bill guides his viewers through the process of building followers in a very professional and fun way. The Twitter Traffic Machine costs less than $29, which truly it is, a bargain.

How to Configure Font Smoothing on Presentation Server and XenApp

How to Configure Font Smoothing on Presentation Server and XenApp

Disabling Font Smoothing #1

First of all, font smoothing over RDP and ICA connections can be disabled altogether by setting the following registry value:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindowsTSEnableFontSmoothing=0 [DWORD]

This applies to all connections to the server but unfortunately only works on Windows Server 2003. I have not yet found a way to disable font smoothing on Server 2008.

Disabling Font Smoothing #2

On XenApp 5.0, font smoothing can also be disabled in the web interface. Unfortunately that applies to the whole site.

To disable font smoothing for a “XenApp Web” site:

  • In the access management console (AMC) go to Citrix Resources -> Configuration Tools -> Web Interface
  • Right-click on the appropriate “XenApp Web” site name and choose “Manage session preferences”
  • Navigate to Remote Connection -> Display
  • Uncheck “Allow font smoothing”

To disable font smoothing for a “XenApp Services” site:

  • In the access management console (AMC) go to Citrix Resources -> Configuration Tools -> Web Interface
  • Select and expand the appropriate “XenApp Services” site name by clicking on the plus sign
  • Right-click on the sub-item “config.xml” and choose “Change session options”
  • Navigate to “Display”
  • Uncheck “Allow font smoothing”

Configuring Font Smoothing #1

Once you made sure that font smoothing is not disabled per computer or per web site, you can start worrying about how to configure it – per user. The following registry value sets the font smoothing type:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktopFontSmoothingType [DWORD]

Possible values:

0: Font smoothing disabled
1: Standard font smoothing (designed for CRT monitors)
2: ClearType font smoothing (designed for LCD monitors)

The default value is 2, i.e. ClearType font smoothing is enabled. The default value originates from the default user profile (typically C:UsersDefaultNTUSER.DAT).

ClearType font smoothing is also enabled on the logon desktop. This is stored in HKEY_USERS.DEFAULTControl PanelDesktopFontSmoothingType.

Configuring Font Smoothing #2

Windows has a GUI for configuring font smoothing (well hidden in the display properties). XenApp does not.

Each user of a published desktop can use the Windows GUI for configuring font smoothing. But what about the majority of XenApp users who only use published applications and do not have access to a published desktop? I do not know. Of course, the admin could set the font smoothing type in the registry for them. But even then users have no means of changing their setting.

Enter XenApp 5.0 and ICA client 11. If and when those two are at the server respectively client end of an ICA connection, the whole thing works the other way round: The ICA client reads the font smoothing type of the Windows client and transmits it to the server who then activates the client’s setting for the current session. This even works across reconnects: During a reconnect from a different machine the new client’s setting is read and transmitted. If it is different from the previous client’s setting the font smoothing type of the session is changed on the fly.

This approach clearly has its advantages: No problems with published applications. Additionally, remote applications always have the same look as local programs.

But wait: What if the client is not a Windows client? Then we are back to the pre-XenApp days: Configuration on the server.

Configuration Overview

Just in case you got confused: The following table lists all requirements and configuration options:

Windows Citrix Client Font Smoothing Type Read From…
2003 SP1/SP2 with KB946633 PS 4.5 with PSE450R02W2K3037 ICA 10.x …the user profile on the server
2003 SP1/SP2 with KB946633 PS 4.5 with PSE450R02W2K3037 ICA 11.x …the user profile on the server
2008 XenApp 5.0 ICA 10.x …the user profile on the server
2008 XenApp 5.0 Citrix Applications (formerly PNA) or web client 11.x on XP/Vista …the user profile on the client

Disclaimer: Font smoothing might also work with ICA clients older than 10.

Where is the Policy?

Enabling ClearType font smoothing increases the bandwidth required by ICA connections. On a LAN the increase is small enough to be negligible. But the same is not true for low-bandwidth WAN links.

The logical step would be to disable font smoothing for users coming in over slow links. There is only one problem: How to do it? The natural place for configuring this would be a Citrix policy. The release preview of XenApp 5.0, however, does not come with such a policy setting. Hopefully Citrix will add it in the final release.

If not, only one option remains: Setting up two web interface sites, one for LAN users and another for WAN users. But that is far from elegant and user-friendly.
