Net seal net animations

Net seal net animations are a set of animations designed to aid in the learning of networking and its components. Networking is ever evolving and requires a mixture of both academic and practice to be able to fully master the subject.

The animations were created as a way aiding learning through visualisations of the structures, components and flow of data.

Sources Academic Papers & Journals

During my degree, as with any degree, I needed to complete a large amount of academic research utilising past papers and journals. Below I have listed some of the general source academic papers and journals. Some of which you are probably aware of as they are relatively easy to find. Others are a bit more obscure and took some searching.

If you are aware of any others, please use the comment box below or Get in Touch.

How to make just one page in a word document landscape

During my studies and academic work I am often needed to switch the layout of just one page from portrait to landscape. This was usually the appendices section to include site maps. Every time I needed to do this though I had to start again figuring out how to do it as I could never remember. So based on this, when I needed to do it today, I thought I would document it so next time I can just check my blog. So here is a quick post on How to make just one page in a word document landscape.

Quick Instructions – How to make just one page in a word document landscape

  1. Click just after the last bit of text on the page prior to the one you want to make landscape.
  2. With the cursor flashing at the end of the text, in the top tool bar click ‘Layout’
  3. Next select ‘Breaks’ and from the drop down select ‘Next Page’.
  4. Click onto the next page (the one you want to make landscape).
  5. In the top tool bar select orientation and select Landscape.

You should now find that all pages are landscape prior to this page, and this page is now landscape. To go back to ‘Portrait’ after your landscape page/s, you will just need to follow the same steps to add another ‘Next Page Break’
