Two neat Gmail hacks for using same email multiply times instead of creating new accounts

This is something cool feature which facilitate to use your same email account for registering multiply times in forums and other places where ask email address for verifications and futureGmail hackings references.

Exactly I don’t know whether this will work with other email service providers like yahoo, live and etc. I tried both these method with my Gmail account and work perfectly.

Gmail system ignores the dots (.) and plus (+) signs and what we doing is using both these as an advantage of using the same mail account in multiply times with creating as much as possible accounts at any site.

This will be good news for spammers anyway if you have a headache about creating mail accounts then this will be useful.

Using + mark in email address:

Let’s say your email account is MYNAME@GMAIL.COM then you can use MYNAME+MY@GMAIL.COM or any other prefix starting with + mark right after your mail address.

Ex: MYNAME+EX@GMAIL.COM , MYNAME+NAME@GMAIL.COM

As Google ignores the +mark and all the letters after it, there is a chance for receiving mails for your accounts.

Using … (dots) in mail address:

Google ignores dots within the mail address. Instead of MYNAME@GMAIL.COM you can use

Ex: MY.NAME@GMAIL.COM, M.Y.NAME@GMAIL.COM

or any other combination with dots and mails receive to these addresses will be credit to your actual account.

How to make any Desired Size of larger files and Compress into Smaller Amount of Space

Sometimes you were encounter this type of files but probably you unaware about those.Super compress File
Most of the people doing this for collect rapidshare points.

Easily anyone can create bigger flies of desired amount and upload.

First we have to do some calculations,

  • Open your calculator (Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> Calculator)
  • Changed the mode to Scientific (View >> Scientific)
  • Lets say you want to create a 100MB file, multiply the 100 by 1024*1024 (Ex. 100*1024*1024 )
  • (You’ll get the answer as "104857600")
  • If the size is 200MB then multiplication will be 200*1024*1024
  • Now convert the answer to Hex for that click the radio button at the left side and answer will be "6400000"
  • Now we want to make it as eight digit number, for that add zeros to the left edge until answer become 8 digit. If the answer is already 8 digits skip this step and go to next step. (Ex. "06400000" – 8 digit number)
From this point we are moving on creating the file using DOS prompt.
  • Now start the command prompt. (Start>> run and type cmd)Steps Creating Larger File
  • Change the directory to where you want to create your file or just press C: for change the path to C partition.
  • Type "debug MYFILE.DAT"(without “”) and press enter. You’ll get a message "File not found"
  • Type "rcx"(without “”) and Enter.
  • Again type the last four digits of the value we got (Hexadecimal format) Ex. 0000
  • Now type "rbx"(without “”) and press Enter.
  • Again type the first four digits of the Hexadecimal value and press enter. Ex. 0640
  • Type “w” (without “”) for write the file to hard drive.
  • Again press type “q” to exit...
Now check the location where you set to create the file, you’ll see there is a file called MYFILE.DAT created. Now compress that file using any compression utility you’ll be amazed.

Make Dead Torrent Alive!! Way of Finding Trackers for Torrents

[updated: 01/06/2009]
Sometimes you may have bad experience with downloading torrents like torrents wereFind Torrents Trackers dead after complete half of it, has slow the download speed, primary tracker was dead and etc.

These are the main reasons why many people refuse the downloading public torrents and go for private trackers.

Normally private trackers have good speed with many seeds but these are offer limited registrations or charge for the membership. So everybody can’t gain the advantage of these trackers.

Anyway I’ll show you how to make dead torrents are alive by adding more and more trackers which can improves download speed by improving number of seeds.

Some people tend to create a list of trackers and add them in to each torrent they downloading. But this won’t be perfect and smarter every time. There can be lots of useless trackers for the specified torrent and there can be lots of missed active torrent which tracks the particular torrent file.

The method I’m going to discuses here will be similar to this though I’ll show you how to find more trackers in a smarter way for getting more achievements.

  • Need more trackers for your torrent?
  • Want find tracker for any torrent because primary tracker blocked by your ISP?
  • In any occasions like primary tracker was down.
  • Or need more seeds and speed up the downloading

Here is the way you can do it in smarter and perfect,

1. Go to btreannouncer.net
- New version is here.

2. Click the browse button and upload the torrent file (you have to download the torrent file to your computer before proceed with this step. Ex. Anyname.torrent)

3. You can see list of available new trackers which can use for download your torrent files, click ReAnnounce button.

4. Download the reannounced torrent file (which has new additional torrent trackers)

5. Also you can copy and add those new torrents to your exiting torrent file, for that open your torrent client and properties and add new trackers after exiting ones.

Ex. In Utorrent Right click on the torrent file>> properties and in general tab add those new torrents which you copies after exiting ones.

Fast Internet Browsing Auto Pager For Firefox

The main disadvantage of browsing internet is we have to be waiting and go to theBrowse Internet Fast pages one by one after we read a page. Loading page one after another take serious times if the internet connection is very slow.

Normally Dialup users always screaming that the sites are too heavy or something like that.

Even we trying to speed up the internet connection we cannot gain the speed beyond the internet service provider (ISP) offer. So I found legitimate way that can work well in practically.

Firefox Auto Pager is an extension for FF which automatically loads the next page of a site inline when you reach the end of the current page for infinite scrolling of content. Auto Pager works with many popular sites, platforms and etc.

Ex. Blogger blogs, wordpress blogs, Social bookmarking sites like digg, ebay, amazon, yahoo, you tube, flickr,, live, msn, myspace, wikipedia, taobao,Twitter ,Google and much more.

  • Advantages:
  1. Fast internet browsing.
  2. Reduce the time consuming.
  3. Less effort for browse pages one by one. (Pages will load in one page)
  4. More customizations, so far I didn’t face any difficulties.

  • Disadvantage:
  1. Only works in Firefox (Firefox add on)
When you entering to any site if the site is compatible with auto pager then it will pop up a message and ask you for loading pages after you scrolling to the end of current page. Go for advance options after you understand the task really what auto pages does.

How to Create Undeletable Folder in Windows XP

In previous article I wrote about creating folder locker which can hide and protect your files inside it with a password. Undeletable Folder
This time I thought to write about creating undeletable folders.

These folders can be deleted in Dos prompt only. So normal computer users will not be able to delete these folders.

To creating and deleting both processes we have to use DOS prompt which you can start by type CMD at "run"

Click Start >> Run and type CMD for start DOS prompt.

Change to the directory that you want to create your folder.

If you're not familiar with dos prompt simply you can create folders in any of your hard drive partition, for that just type hard+drive+letter: (Ex. C: , D: )

Then type "md \aux\\" without quotes marks and hit enter.

A folder called aux will be creating in your selected partition.

Try to delete in normal way, it will give you an error message whenever you try to delete it. There are many other names which you can use for creating folders.
  • lpt1 to lpt9 ( Ex. md \lpt1\\ )
  • CON
  • AUX
For delete these folders again open DOS prompt and navigate to the directory which you have create the folder

Choosing a Computer Power Supply Most Important Factors

When choosing a power supply there are few factors you should consider to getting the most suitable one for the computer.computer power supply
  • Maximum power output, in Watts
  • Maximum current output in Amps (A)
  • Power efficiency
  • Brand name/Series
  • Number of connections and types
  • Price

Maximum power output, in Watts:

First you have to decide which amount of output power required for your computer. Other than manually calculations there are two easy systems which provides more accurate answer for this question.new egg power calculator


NewEgg Power Supply Calculator


extreme power calculator
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator


From above I love extreme power calculator as it provides more options and therefore will be more accurate result. Let’s say the power calculator suggests you 400W then you should buy a 450W or 500W power supply other than your power supply will not be enough in some cases like hardware upgrades in future.

Note: overclocked systems need more power than its normal stage.

My recommendation is calculate using at least two calculators and get the average a of both result.


Maximum current output:

This is a fact which you need to consider if you’re using several dedicated video cards and etc which uses more current. If you have any doubt you have to ask from the vendor about the current requirement which most suits to your pc.


Power efficiency and usage:

Wasted power convert in to the heat of the computer. If there is lower efficiency that will heat your computer more and more. This will cause to dissipate your system fans as they required running faster in more heated environment. So you need to consider about Power efficiency otherwise your computer will boiled.

Electricity bill can be raise up for the non used wasted power.
Hence you have to be bothered about 80% or more power efficiency when buying a power supply.


Number of connections and types:

The most common type of connections are listed below.

20+4 pin Main Connector
4 pin 12V Plugged into the motherboard (May be 8 pin in some cases)
6 pin PCI-Express (for video cards, tv cards and etc)
6+2 pin(or 8 pin) PCI Express: (This can deliver even more power to the video card)
SATA power connector
Molex or Peripheral: (for older hard drives, optical drives, case fans, etc)
Floppy
Brand/Series and etc..


Branding:


Cheaper brand power supplies don’t offer any extra protection and other facilities which offer by the other branding products. There is more chance to drown your power supply after less amount life time period. Also which will cause to unstable some parts or the whole computer?

Cheaper models/brands will not offer any type of protection or only minimum that would be leaving your PC unprotected. Power protection will be important as the current supply of the area and etc.

Power does not fluctuate is called as clean power. Fluctuate current would be cause to unstable some parts of a computer. What I’m notice is some cheaper modules not bothered about this fluctuation of current. So it is best to choose one of the good branded product as they supplies more facilities and protection than cheaper brands.


Price:


Price is oscillating for brand names, types and etc. Whatever the brand name our aim is buying a most suited power supply for our computer environment. So it’s best to lookout a power supply unit which has best ratio between performance and price.
